I bought one from Amazon specifically for the Instant Pot that has a glass bottom and soft silicon sides and it worked great. Any springform pan the correct size should be fine. Place the cheesecake on the trivet (I highly recommend this OXO silicone bakeware sling !) or fabricate a sling from tin foil, leaving handles long enough to lift the cheesecake out and lower the trivet and cheesecake into the IP. In a large mixing bowl, mix the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.

Instant Pot Lemon-Lime Cheesecake instructions

  1. Mix together graham cracker crumbs, butter, sugar and salt in small bowl. Press into bottom of a 7-inch springform pan, and about 1/2 inch up the sides..
  2. Bake in 350 degree oven for 8-12 minutes until golden brown. Set aside..
  3. Using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar until very smooth..
  4. Add heavy cream, vanilla, pinch of salt, lemon-lime juice and zest. Mix until thoroughly combined..
  5. TASTE the filling BEFORE adding the eggs. If you like it sweeter, add a spoonful of sugar at a time. For more tartness, add a bit more lemon or lime juice, or zest..
  6. Now add the eggs - one at a time - mixing well at gentle speed, scraping down the sides of bowl as you go..
  7. Pour filling over the graham cracker crust. Cover the pan with tin foil. Place on a steamer rack..
  8. Add 2 cups water to the inner pot of the Instant Pot (I used a 6-quart). Gently place the covered cheesecake in the pot..
  9. Pressure cook on HIGH for 32 minutes. When finished, allow a Natural Release for 8 minutes..
  10. Remove the springform pan from the pot and remove the foil. The center of the cheesecake will be jiggly, the edges will be firm. Place the cheesecake on a wire rack and cool to room temperature. (About an hour.).
  11. Chill the cheesecake for about 6 hours. Release the springform pan, top with whipped cream or decorate with zest or fruit. Enjoy!.
