If you think that you have found love in the Instant Pot, wait until you try Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake!
When I made my first cheesecake in the Instant Pot, my family raved about it. So much that they swore it was even better than any cheesecake that they ever had at the Cheesecake Factory restaurant.
I used to make cheesecake in the oven, and although the taste was great, it was very time consuming and difficult to make it look perfect.
Oven cheesecakes tend to crack and you must time it perfectly to get it completely cooked all the way through without overcooking the edges.
So I started experimenting with making them in the Instant Pot. Trial after trial, the cheesecakes were much better and much easier than the ones that I baked in the oven.
That is when I knew it was time to add Oreos to the basic cheesecake recipe!
Using an Oreo crust, putting chunks of oreos both in the filling and on top of the cheesecake, and the Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake became an instant success!
What type of Springform Pan to Use With Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake
I have had a lot of questions about the type of springform pan that I use in my Instant Pot. I use a 7-inch Springform Pan that fits the 5, 6, and 8 quart Instant Pot.
I find it easy to use the springform pan, especially when it is time to release the cooled cheesecake. In fact, I even make casseroles and lasagna in the same pan!
If you already a standard springform pan that you use in the oven, please take note. Most oven baked cheesecakes are made in 9 inch springform pans so you will most likely need to purchase a smaller one for use in your Instant Pot.
Another hint: In order to easily lower and remove the springform pan from the Instant Pot, you can easily do so by making a sling out of aluminum foil.
Take a long piece of foil and fold it in half 2-3 times. Place the pan in the center and use the foil on both sides as handles. No special equipment required!
