I have made this twice in two days. I didn't want to review it yesterday because the corn was thoroughly overcooked at 4 minutes. (And that was for two ears.) So...I insightfully determined that that wasn't the fault of the technique, but of the youth of the corn. So tonight I nuked the corn (again two ears) for two minutes (one minute per ear) and it is perfect ...and the silk comes off soooooo wonderfully easily. So I recommend to my fellow 'zaarites that you consider the time of the year and the probable maturity of the corn in deciding how long to microwave. Personally, I probably will use this technique forevermore. Thanks so much for posting it!

Boy, this was easy! I was determined to make dinner tonight without using my stove AT ALL, due to the heat today. I did 3 ears of corn, all at the same time, and the 4 minutes in the microwave was just right. It was a little tricky getting the plastic wrap and husks off (I served the corn with the appropriate warnings). Thanks for posting this P.Lisa, it kept my kitchen (and myself) cool tonight :)
