Pressure Cooker Corn on the Cob

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 2 mins

Making corn on the cob can be a pain and heat up your kitchen in the summer when you have to boil lots of water. Make it easier and faster with a pressure cooker!


  1. Pour the water in the bottom of your pressure cooker and set in the steamer insert (I use one of those vegetable steamers that looks like a little flying saucer when its closed).
  2. Arrange the corn in the steamer basket- I can only fit 3 ears of corn in my 5 qt cooker with the basket in place. If you have a larger cooker you can increase the amount of corn you cook, and can up the water to 1 1/2 cups.
  3. Secure the lid and seal. When the cooker comes up to high pressure (15 psi), set a timer for 2 minutes. After the 2 minutes are up, run the cooker under cold water until it releases.
  4. Enjoy!

The best way to cook corn on the cob! I love cooking with my P.C. because it is quick and easy. Also the flavor of food is much better than traditional cooking methods. I refer to Lorna Sass and Suzanne Gibbs for recipe expertise and to understand how I can modify my favorites from other methods. One thing to typically watch for is that you do not overcook, especially meats, although braising, etc. is THE BEST with a PC. From stock, broth, soup, stews etc. everything can be home-made quickly to enhance tastiness in a remarkably short time. If you only have one cooking tool--hands down for durability, results and efficiency without even a kitchen, I would recommend you get an induction cook top and a PC. With well crafted recipes, you'll eat like a chef every day.
