  • 6-Quart or Larger Instant Pot

  • Place the pot on high pressure/manual and set the cooking time to 2 minutes. It will take about 5-10 minutes for the pot to pressurize and then the 2 minutes will start counting down. Let the pot naturally release for 5 minutes and then manually release it afterwards.
  • Remove the corn safely from the instant pot, dress, and enjoy!

  • Corn on the cob can be big, so if you’re wanting to do full pieces, you’ll want a larger instant pot to work with. The one pictured is 6 quarts.
  • For smaller instant pots, you can slice your cobs into smaller chunks and cook it that way instead. Do not change the process or cooking time.
  • I use a steamer basket, but the insert the instant pot comes with is just fine. You just don’t want the corn touching the bottom of the pot.
