It’s the simplest way to microwave corn on the cob, and it yields delicious results. Here are the steps:
- Take an ear of fresh corn and remove the husk, leaving a single layer of husks in place.
- Put a few tablespoons of water in a microwave safe dish with a bit of butter or oil in it. Then put your ear on top so that it is snug against the side of dish. Cover with another damp cloth or towel to keep steam inside during cooking. It is also possible to use pieces of aluminium foil or produce covers for this step if you have them available. But they can be difficult to find in most grocery stores).
- Microwave on high for 8-10 minutes depending on your microwave power. You can rotate the ear half way through to ensure that it cooks evenly. It is done when the corn is tender and most of it has been exposed
- Remove and enjoy with a little salt and butter if desired.
There are other ways to cook corn on the cob. The most common way, which is the way I cook it, is to place individual ears of corn on hot coals or a gas burner and saute them for several minutes until they are slightly charred. The resulting corn on the cob is delicious and can be served whole for your family and friends.

How I Microwave Corn on the Cob? (In Paragraph)
What is the easiest way to microwave corn on the cob? I have used several different methods in my quest for THE one way. The most obvious method was to wrap the ears in aluminum foil and nuke until tender, or open a can of creamed corn, add an ear of corn to it, heat through and serve. Both are okay but not great.
The Microwave has produced perfectly tender corn that held all together when cut off the cob.
This has become so tasty that it just melts in your mouth.
