We love making corn on the cob in the warm summer months, especially while grills are out. The CrockPot saves coveted grill space during barbecue season, and it’s so easy to batch cook for a crowd!

We love doing air fryer corn on the cob, but the slow cooker is the easiest method to make corn on the cob for a party or cookout.

How To Make CrockPot Corn On The Cob

  1. Turn the CrockPot to low.
  2. Remove husks from corn, place in the CrockPot.
  3. Add 1 cup of water. Place a tablespoon of butter on each corn cob. The butter will melt over the corn, and mix with the water to make sure everything gets a nice coating.
  4. Cook for 2 hours or until corn is bright yellow.
  5. Serve seasoned with salt, pepper, additional butter, and parsley.
