  • 4 cobs of corn
  • 1 cup water


  • Remove the husks and silk from the corn. 
  • Add the corn cobs to your Instant Pot along with 1 cup of water. You can sit the corn on the trivet if you wish, but I didn't notice a difference without it. 
  • Close the lid, make sure the valve is set on "sealing", and set it to cook for 2 minutes on high pressure.
  • It'll take about 10 minutes for the Instant Pot to come to pressure. Once the countdown has finished, carefully do a quick pressure release.
  • Serve the corn immediately with desired toppings (I like butter, sea salt and garlic powder). 


  • Cooking the corn for 2 minutes makes it fairly soft (not mushy!). If you prefer the corn to be on the crisper side, give it 1 minute. Make sure to do a quick release or the corn will continue to soften the longer it's in the enclosed Instant Pot.
  • I use this 6-quart Instant Pot.
