I am amazed at this method for cooking corn! Not being one to use my microwave for anything other than melting butter, reheating a dish, occasionally defrosting, and boiling water, I was very skeptical. However, after reading all of the rave reviews I gave in and tried it. DELICIOUS, and perfectly cooked! Equally as amazing is all the silks came off the cob effortlessly. Instead of running under cold water, I just let them sit while I covered a plate with cubed butter, sprinkled with salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese, and a bit of chili powder to roll the hot cobs in. I then held each cob with a tea towel to shuck, placed each on my prepared plate, and rolled them in the melted seasoned butter. Super super yummy, no mess, and so quick! Thank you so much for sharing this Mercy! I will continue using this method so long as I have a microwave, and it most certainly will be shared ;)

Excellent! I use this recipe when I make it for 1 or two of us, and I use the Bake in the oven method for more of us. Both are super easy and re4ally good! Thanks!

Wonderful! It's been super hot and humid lately and the last thing I wanted to do was boil a huge pot of water, and I was using the oven to cook fish. The corn was ready by the time the fish was cooked, which was perfect! I did one on its own first (to halve for the kids, so it could cool), then two more for hubby and me. We all agreed that it came out perfectly, and it was nice not having steamy windows for it!

the ONLY way I'll do coc again. So quick and delicious, moist and sweet. I'm sure we'll have corn on the cob more often now that it only takes 5 min.
