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 1/2 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 made this tonight, and it was excellent! You are right; I’ll never boil on the stove again. This tastes so much better.
What would be the cooking time and release method for frozen mini cobs in an IP MINI?
I haven’t tried those, however, since they are smaller I would try the time I gave in the recipe. If they need a little more time, just put the lid on and let them steam a little while longer in the residual heat.
Turned out absolutely fabulous!! Glad I followed your timing, which said two minutes, rather than the others that only said one.
I’m so glad, Robert!
I love cookingthe corn in the shucks but if they are too long, can I cut each ear in half?
Yes, and if you are keeping the husks on, you may want to add a minute to the cook time.
Simple, quick, yummy…..ty
This is an awesome recipe. The corn was perfect.
This was so easy to make! We had corn for dinner tonight and I decided to try cooking it in my IP. Everyone loved it! It was cooked perfectly. Good to have this recipe.
That’s great, Dianne! I’m glad you liked this method of cooking corn! Thank you for your review!
