  • 4 pieces corn on the cob (fresh or frozen)
  • 1.5 cups water


  • Pour 1-1/2 cups water into the inner liner pot of the Instant Pot.
  • Add the trivet that came with the Instant Pot.
  • Place the corn on the cob on top of the trivet.
  • Close the lid and turn the release valve to the SEALING position.
  • Press MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK for 2 minutes on high pressure for fresh corn and 4 minutes for frozen corn. (NOTE: It will take several minutes to come up to pressure before it starts the 2 minute countdown.)
  • After it has pressure cooked for 2 minutes, it will beep 10 times. Let it release pressure naturally (NATURAL RELEASE) for 5 minutes.
  • Move the release valve to the VENTING position to do a QUICK RELEASE.
  • Open the lid and carefully remove the corn using tongs.
  • Place the corn on the cob in a serving bowl or platter or in individual serving dishes. Slather with butter and salt and enjoy!
