Each summer, a corn farmer would drive in town with his pickup truck, loaded with mountain of corn on the cob at the back (I could literally swim in the pile – not that I’ve tried it before ?).

He’d stop just a couple of blocks from our house with a huge handwritten sign.

So when summer arrives, I’d eagerly look at his usual spot and see if he’s there.

His sweet corn truck was like an ice-cream truck to me!

I get so excited when we spot him! My parents would pull over, and ask us to help pick some corn home.

It was slightly pricier than the ones from the market, but he definitely grew some of the sweetest & juiciest fresh corn I have ever had in my life!

Cooking corn on the cob is so easy and quick. And Instant Pot Pressure Cooker makes it even faster & easier with consistently delicious results, while conserving the nutrients.

How to Purchase Corn on the Cob?

  • Husks: fresh, good green color (not brown/yellow/dry), tight
  • Kernels: bright, plump, milky, tightly arranged in rows
  • Silk: soft, moist, light golden pale (not brown/brittle), slightly sticky, the more silk the better
  • Bottom (where it was broken off the stalk): if it’s already brown – most likely it’s not fresh
  • Don’t buy corn that has been out in the sun all day

How to Store Corn on the Cob?

Ideally, you should cook & consume the corn on the cob on the day it was picked. But if you’re not going to cook and eat your fresh corn that day, here are some storage tips:

  • Remove the long stem & outer big leaves to prevent moisture loss
  • Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator with the husks to protect its flavor

You’ll Enjoy Instant Pot Corn on the Cob Because:

  • Maximize the nutrient retention comparing to traditional cooking methods
  • Quick & easy way to make perfectly juicy & tender corn
  • Family-friendly healthy comfort food – great as a side dish or snack

I included 4 small potatoes with 2 corn on cob for 10 min. Will it all cook?

This was so easy and the corn was cooked perfectly. Definitely will be go-to for me and the hubby during sweet corn season.

Did it with six ears of quart in the regular sized IP… came out perfect! No point doing it any other way from now on.

I cooked 6 ears of corn in the husk on a trivetin an 8 qt Instant Pot with 1 cup plus 1/3 cup water. Before it got up to pressure it beeped and had “burn” in the display. I assumed this meant it was out of water, so I cancelled, did a quick release and opened the pot. Sure enough, it was dry. The corn was partially cooked, but not done. Should I have used more water? Did the husks absorb the steam?

To Avatar Linda: Definitely do as Amy and Jacky say: “Please make sure the venting knob is turned to the sealing position and the sealing ring is seated properly.” That’s all important. But also note that the instruction manual for the 8 quart (which is what I have ) plainly states “Always add at least 18 fl oz/ 500 ml of water or other liquids so enough steam can be generated to cook under pressure. These include cooking sauces, wine, beer, stocks, juices of fruits and vegetables. Oils, oil-based sauces and thick cooking sauces do not have enough water content… Read more »

I love that you guys factor this into your instructions! It’s much more realistic and helps us plan our cooking and prep time better. I’ve read recipes that say “2mins!!” Um yeah. Not really.
Thank you!

I haven’t made this yet, plan to do it tonight.

I must say, I read through every comment here on the forum and I have a question:
Must I have a spouse or significant other to cook em this way?? ~~ there’s not one instruction for the little ol’ lonely person who only wants to cook ONE EAR tonight!?

I have the 6qt Duo and the Mini Duo +.

Is it still the 2 minutes for one ear, or does 1 ear equate to 1 minute?
THANK YOU!

I tried something very different! After cooking a roast in pressure cooker I had a lot of liquid left over. I threw a piece of corn in the cooker and pressured it. It Was the best corn on cob I’ve ever eaten!!

Hi,

It’s my first time ever using my instant pot, but I had to do the step 3 X times, so about 8 min. instead of two to cook 4 corn. I’m wondering if I’m doing something wrong? My pot is 6Qt.
