First of all you shouldn't be boiling corn in a pot. It be should steamed. Your way is much faster and it is being steamed in the microwave. I think I should give it a try. i do like the fact I can do one at time.

I learned about this way of doing corn 10 years ago from a neighbor and have never looked back. It is the easiest and quick way of cooking corn.


If we want to BBQ corn, we just cook it in the microwave and brown it on the grill for turning it a few times to brown. I agree, if you use this method you will indeed use it all the time.

I like like this method of cooking the corn...BUT...I am concerned that "worms" might be hiding in the corn silks!...Consequently, I remove the husks before cooking it in the microwave...
