7. If you often cook sweet and savory items and you observe that sweet dishes are getting savory flavors, then the sealing silicone rings are to blame, these absorb flavors/odors from food and pass it to other dishes. In this case you may want to get 2 to 3 additional rings for different type of foods. Also some may go bad which means they lose their sealing capacity so we need to replace them. Here are genuine instant pot sealing rings.
