  • 4 ears corn on the cob husks and silks removed (see note)
  • 1 cup water use 1.5 cups for 8 quart Instant Pot


  • Place 1 cup water in the Instant Pot inner pot (use 1 1/2 cups water if using an 8 quart instant pot). Put the metal trivet in the bottom of the pot.
  • Set the ears of corn on the trivet, alternating the direction of the corn ears in each layer of corn.
  • Close the Instant Pot lid and turn the steam release valve to the sealing position. Press the "Manual" or "Pressure Cook" button and set the cook time to 2 minutes. The Instant Pot will take some time to reach pressure and then the cook time will begin counting down.
  • When the cook time ends, quick release the pressure by carefully turning the steam release valve to the venting position (I do this using the handle of a long spoon). When all of the steam has escaped and the pin drops down, open the Instant Pot lid.
  • Serve corn with butter, salt and pepper, or as desired.


  • You can scale this recipe up or down. You can fit up to 6 ears of corn in a 6 quart Instant Pot and up to 9 ears in an 8 quart.
