Let’s start by answering this question; Yes, a microwave oven can cook any type of food, including corn on the cob. It is like grilling corn – you don’t remove the husk. Let it cook in the oven for a few minutes on high temperature and then remove it from the oven and slip off the husk. You’ll have a perfectly cooked corn, without the mess, of course.
Is it the most efficient way of cooking corn?
Unfortunately, even the best small microwave for popcorn can not efficiently cook if you’re using more than 2 ears. However, if you’re cooking 1 or 2, then microwaving it is faster and easier than steaming or boiling corn. Once you try it out, you may never want to go back to the old way of cooking corn.
Why choose this type of method?
It’s easy. Plus, the corn absorbs the natural flavor coming from the husks. As a result, you’ll have undiluted taste of corn, and if you got the corn fresh from the farm then you don’t need to add butter.
Is it possible to cook more than 2 ears of corn?
Yes, it is. You can cook more than 2 ears of corn through a microwave oven, but you need to increase its cooking time. For every ear of corn, you will need 4 minutes.
