  • 6 ears corn (husks and silk removed)
  • 1 cup water


  • Place trivet in the bottom of Instant Pot.
  • Pour water into bottom of Instant Pot.
  • Place 2-3 ears of corn on top of the trivet. Stack 2-3 more ears of corn on top of those, turned the opposite direction.
  • Place the lid on the instant pot and turn the valve to "sealing".
  • Press the "manual" button and set timer for 2 minutes. Then walk away and let the Instant Pot do it's magic!
  • As soon as it is finished cooking, press the cancel button to turn off the heat and do a "quick release" on the pressure. Remove the lid after all the pressure has been released.
  • Use tongs to remove hot corn from Instant Pot. Slather with butter, salt, and pepper and enjoy.
