How to Cook Corn on the Cob in a Slow Cooker

We got a bunch of corn in our local co-op basket a couple weekends ago and I desperately needed to cook it. Hubbyman wasn’t going to be home in time to grill it (my all time fav) and I didn’t just want to steam it, so I started thinking…I can cook potatoes in the slow cooker, why not learn How to Cook Corn on the Cob in a Slow Cooker.  The corn went perfectly with yesterday’s Triple Citrus Roasted Chicken.

This really doesn’t count as a recipe, but more of a technique.

Fill slow cooker about 3/4 of the way with water.  Season liberally with salt.

Clean corn of husk and fibers. Trim slightly to fit into slow cooker. Put into water. Corn will float.

Cook on high for about 3 1/2-4 hours. Check occasionally and turn/rotate corn so all sides have a chance in the water.


let’s get social!


  1. Great idea for big gatherings and not enough stove area. I do believe some people did not have the two parent family or have been taught about cooking basics. It is sad but I do believe there are no wrong questions. I am kinda shocked to find some rude comments on this site though. Maybe these people need to look past their white picket fences and at the real World.

  2. Are these ADULT people who are so easily shocked at simple “cooking” ?
    Sounds like the need instructions on how to slice lettuce.
    My best corn on the cob takes 7 minutes in the microwave. I’m a genius.

  3. I agree with the other lady – cook corn on the stove in 5 to 6 minutes. I don’t understand why women are asking about how to make Iced tea and hard cooked eggs. Did none of these gals have mothers that cooked?

  4. I don’t understand why anyone would make corn in a slow cooker when you can make it on the stove in five minutes. Sounds like twice the work for the same result. I guess it would work for a cookout?

    I stumbled you.

  5. Thanks ~M! I thought about doing it that way (hadn't really heard of either way before), but I clingy 1yo who would not let me put him down…so I had to think of something that I could do one-handed. LOL!

    Thanks for the link…I love her site.
