Slow Cooker Buttery Dill Corn on the Cob

Slow Cooker Buttery Dill Corn

Maybe it’s my patriotic nature or maybe it’s just that I love summer and all the food that comes along with it. The 4th of July is one of my absolute favorite holidays. Many years we have hosted parties and I start planning menus weeks in advance! And of course true to my nature, I always over do it and I end up spending like two day doing all the cooking and then we end up with tons of leftovers (that part is kind of on purpose…I love the leftovers for days!). This year we’ve had lots going on and so instead I will be helping my mom do the cooking at her house. If you are in charge of either doing the cooking this year or bringing along something to share, this Slow Cooker Corn on the Cob is a super simple choice that truly captures the spirit of summer cooking!

Is there anything better than that sweet crispy corn from the farm stand (or even the grocery store)? Besides cooking it up and biting into it while the melty butter dribbles down your chin! Childhood memories right there!

  • 6 ears sweet corn (cleaned and shucked)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill (fresh or freeze dried)
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter


  • Cut enough aluminum foil pieces for each piece of corn making sure they are large enough to wrap around and close on the ends
  • Wash corn and leave wet as this will help seasoning stick
  • Place each ear of corn on a piece of foil
  • Sprinkle each piece generously with salt and dill
  • Divide butter equally and place a piece on each ear of corn
  • Wrap the corn up tightly making sure ends are closed up so that butter will stay in as it melts
  • Place the ears seam side up in your slow cooker
  • Cover and cook on high for 2 hours or low for 4 or until tender


I used my 4 quart casserole crock for the corn but have also used a large 6 quart oval slow cooker as well.

  1. 1 star
    Sounded really good so I tried this today with six ears: in my 6qt crockpot, on low for 4 hours then shut off until time to eat. What a waste! The flavor was good but the moisture drained out of all the kernels. Neither of us could finish one ear. One star for flavor but that’s it.

    1. Ah Mary, that stinks! I’ve made this so many times and even for large crowds and it’s always turned out perfectly. I do make very sure that I have those foil packets wrapped up tight as noted so that none of the liquid or butter can escape. How long did it sit after turning off the slow cooker until dinner time?
