  • Corn on the Cob. Make sure to remove the husks and the silks before adding them to your Instant Pot.
  • Place the corn in a trivet two or three at a time. Lay each set in a criss cross pattern to help them all fit. Larger ears of corn can be broken in half if needed.
  • The corn only takes four minutes to cook to perfection. Be careful not to overcook the corn or it'll get mushy and lose flavor.
