What kind of pan can I use?

Although this post features the peach cobbler cooked in a glass dish, we no longer recommend cooking with glass in your pressure cooker. It has come to my attention that a private study showed it is not safe and that Instant Pot does not recommend using glass

However, we have a GREAT alternative! I love, love, love my Fat Daddio 7-inch Cheesecake Pan and they also make a cake pan that will fit perfectly inside your 6-quart or 8-quart instant pot. You can order the Fat Daddio 7-Inch Cake Pan on Amazon. Both of these pans are made from Anodized Aluminum and are considered safe to use inside the instant pot.

Do I eat it warm or cold?

Peach cobbler can be eaten either warm or cold. Just make sure you let it sit for at least an hour (or longer) before serving. After that, you can serve it at room temperature, chilled, or reheated.

Serve it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat.
