Instant Pot corn on the cob cooks in 2 minutes and is super juicy! Once you try cooking corn in the Instant Pot, you’ll never make it any other way! No more dealing with a boiling pot of water!
Before I got an Instant Pot, my go to method of cooking corn on the cob was the microwave (check out my microwave corn on the cob recipe). However, Instant Pot cooks corn even quicker than a microwave and makes juicier corn!
Instant Pot corn on the cob tastes like a classic boiled corn-on-a-cob that is cooked in a pot of water, except you don’t have to deal with a pot of boiling water! To cook corn in the Instant Pot you only need 1 cup of water, and the Instant Pot creates enough pressure to perfectly cook all the corn with a generated steam!
Best of all, Instant Pot cooking time for corn on the cob in just two minutes! It does take about 5 minutes for the Instant Pot to come to pressure to start counting down the cooking time, but still the whole pot of perfect corn on the cob is ready in under 10 minutes from start to finish! It makes a classic corn on the cob that’s cooked evenly and is perfectly juicy! Amazing!
How To Cook Corn On The Cob In The Instant Pot
All you need to do to make delicious corn on the cob is to add corn and 1 cup of cold tap water into the Instant Pot and cook it on Manual High Pressure for 2 minutes, then do a quick release (QR) of the steam. Delicious juicy corn on the cob is ready!
Remove the cooked corn on the cob from the pot and sprinkle with salt and your favorite seasoning. You can add some butter to it if you like, mmm! A piece of butter melting on a hot corn on the cob makes me drool!
You can add as many ears of corn as will fit into the Instant Pot. The amount of water will always be 1 cup no matter who much corn is used, and the pressure cooking time will always be 2 minutes!

I followed the recipe but my corn turned out hard. Almost like it wasn’t cooked all the way through. Any ideas for how I can improve next time?
