Pressure Cooker Corn on the Cob

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by SuperSpike

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!

PLEASE, don't EVER run water over a pressure cooker to cool it! You CAN and WILL ruin it. It will cause it to warp.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 ears sweet corn, halved
  • 1 cup water


  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!
