Place your insert inside your instant pot and place the corn on the cob on top of it. Add the water and secure the lid.
4 Corn On the Cob, 1½ Cups Water
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.
