People are putting hilarious decals on their Instant Pots

No doubt, the Instant Pot pressure cooker will once again bubble to the surface as one of the top sellers of Amazon Prime Day on Monday, so if you are all-in for this cooker cult, you might also think about buying your appliance an outfit.

Instant Pot worshipers do more than trade recipes on the cooker's Facebook page, which has ballooned to more than 1.4 million members. They also show off the decals they bought or made to decorate what's been called the world's first viral kitchen appliance.

Pressure cookers have been around for centuries, but the gadget fueled largely by word of mouth on social media is as user-friendly as a slow cooker, but dinner takes less than an hour to cook instead of all day.

So it's no joke when a cook wraps the steel shell in an image of Princess Leia from Star Wars with "Help Me Instant Pot! You're My Only Hope!" ($8 on Amazon).

The decals are made of vinyl and easy to apply by simply placing the image on the cooker and smoothing it flat with a credit card.

You can make your own using printable vinyl and a cutting machine like the Silhouette or Cricut. There are hundreds of design ideas on Pinterest (Of course there are!).

If you aren't the crafty type but are already in the Instant Pot cult or plan to join thanks to an Amazon Prime Day deal, here are some of our favorite Instant Pot decals we found on Etsy and Amazon, all in the $5 to $10 range:
