There’s something about corn on the cob that screams summer, barbecues and total relaxation! The only problem is, knowing how to cook it just right.  How long does it need to boil?

Why is the Instant Pot better for cooking corn on the cob?

I like this method because it’s no fuss! No worries about watching for the water to boil so that you can time it.  No worries about the grill not staying the right temp and ending up with over or under cooked corn.  This is super fast and totally predictable and leaves you with tender crisp corn kernels every single time.
