How To Microwave Corn on the Cob!

Hi Everyone,

My daughter and I got to go visit Grandma in the Phoenix, AZ area last week for spring break!

So,  it has been a while since my last post,  but I needed the vacation.  Now I am “back in the saddle again” , and armed with several videos from the trip!

Here we show you how to microwave corn on the cob!


This is a re-creation from a very popular video posted by  on YouTube a few months back. We treated it like a ‘myth-busters’ experiment, (it just seemed too good to be true), the result is “Confirmed”!   Yummy corn very quickly.

A few pointers:

– The recommendation is 4 min per ear. That may be a little much. Treat it like anything in the microwave, the more you add maybe add another 60% of the original time and keep it going like that, 6 minutes probably would have been fine for two ears in the set-up you see here.

– The second ear came out a lot easier, let them sit for a few minutes!

– I am intrigued by the original video by , I think the “ove-gloves” might be a great idea. A little more gripping could not hurt!

Why boil corn on the cob unless you have to?

I hope you enjoy, drop a note with any questions!
