Want to know the quickest, easiest way to cook corn on the cob? Check out this Microwave Corn on the Cob tutorial. Corn on the cob is such a great side for family dinners; and, with this technique, it's also super easy to cook! Cooking corn on the cob by boiling heats up the kitchen and takes up valuable stove space. When you microwave corn, it's not in anybody's way and you can throw it together right before setting the table so it's good and fresh. The next time corn on the cob is on your menu, try microwaving it.

I never thought you could do corn on the cob in the microwave this is a great idea and a great time/ space saver. I love corn on the corn with a knob of real butter on it but I rarely do it but I think with the new method I will be doing it more often.

What a great idea. I love fresh corn on the cob, but it's such a hassle to boil just one ear to make it for myself. (I live alone.) I can't wait to try this oh so easy Microwave Corn on the Cob recipe when the fresh corn comes into season.

This sounds really fast and easy. I never really thought to cook the ears of corn into the microwave before. I usually boil water on the stove and then drop the cleaned ears in and boil for another 10 to 15 minutes. They come out tender crisp. I will have to try this recipe.

We have microwaved our corn for years now and I do agree it is great that way! I am going to try your method of leaving the corn husks on, though. We always removed the husks right before microwaving the corn and placed the corn on a plate with butter pats on it. We then turned the corn in the butter halfway through. I like how you pull the husk down and use it as a handle!
