For an easy vegetable side dish, make Instant Pot Corn on the Cob! Seriously, it is so easy! I will NEVER boil corn on the stove again! Pressure cooker corn on the cob is where it's at!
Instant Pot Corn on the Cob
Every year we go to Bob's Corn Maze & Pumpkin Farm in Snohomish, WA. It's a tradition! We eat apple cider donuts, go through the corn maze, which is a different design every year. Then we buy a load of corn to take home!
We use the corn for salads, in soups, and of course, corn on the cob! Sometimes we make Mexican Street Corn, and it is so delicious!
Enjoy Instant Pot Corn on the Cob any time. You can even cut the cooked kernels off of the cob and use in a soup or salad.
Some tasty ways to enjoy your Instant Pot Corn on the cob are:
- Just butter and salt
- Lime, butter, chile powder
- Garlic butter
- Butter, parmesan, garlic
- Chipotle butter
The possibilities are endless! Have fun with it!

Instant Pot Corn on the Cob is the easiest recipe I make in my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker! It comes out just perfectly cooked. Pressure cooker corn on the cob is easy and fast!
- 1-10 ears Corn on the Cob (you can cook just 1, or as many as you can fit in the pot)
Cut the ends off of the ears of corn (you can fit more in this way). Shuck it if you want to.
Place the trivet in the pot, and pour in 1 ½ cups of water (2 cups for the 8 qt)
Stack the ears of corn in the pot. Close the lid and set the steam release knob to the sealing position.
Press the Pressure Cook/Manual button or dial, then the + or - button or dial to select 2 minutes (3 to 4 minutes for unshucked corn).
When the cooking cycle is finished, turn the steam release knob to the Venting position to do a Quick Release of the pressure.
When the pin in the lid drops down, open the lid and carefully remove the corn. Slather with butter and sprinkle with salt, and enjoy!

I can't wait for fresh corn!
Cob is the best
I'm not a huge corn on the cob fan - or at least I wasn't until I found this recipe! OMG! I bought four ears of corn today, cut the tops and bottoms off and peeled off about two of the outer husks on each ear. Put them on top of the rack in my 8 qt Instant Pot, added two cups of water to the bottom, and set the pot for High Pressure for 4 minutes. When the corn was finished, it peeled SO easily - no mess with the floss, etc., and IT. WAS. DELICIOUS! I'll be making it again tomorrow!
Is this in high or low pressure?
Everyone in the house loves corn on the cob but there was never an easy way to cook it....until now! Having been an instant pot owner going on two years, why am I just now finding out about this? Recipe was simple, easy and quick. Perfection!
I used my mini instant pot, 2 corn cobs cut in half, same water and time of 2 min and rapid release-PERFECT!! I will never cook them any different!!!
I put 3 minutes by accident, but it seemed perfect! I love discovering new vegetables to cook in the instant pot. Its so easy and saves water and requires less attending... absolutely love broccoli, cauliflower, and now corn!
