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!

Did not find to what mode to set it up, steaming?
I wish I had an Instant Pot for this recipe alone! Waiting for a huge pot of water to boil is annoying when all you want is juicy corn on the cob!
I’m making this for the weekend, I bet everyone is going to devour it!
Thank you . I'm really new witness pots and want to learn as much as I can. I'm it's just me so dont want to cook a ton of food at a time.
Thought at first this was a silly idea because it’s easy enough to just boil corn in water on the stovetop, however I was out of space on the stove to put a large pot of water so I tried this instead. Turned out perfect! Actually I think the corn tasted even better than my regular boiling in water.
With corn season right around the corner, this is perfect timing. We love corn on the cobb. My grandchildren always ask for corn on the cobb. Always a hit at bbq parties during the summer months too.
Great recipe! So quick and easy, plus didn't have to wait for a big pot of water to boil.
I cooked 8 ears of corn for 3 minutes. It was SPECTACULAR! Super tender and juicy . We devoured it!
Should this be done on high pressure or low?
