    I started nuking corn years ago, and never looked back.

    I shuck the corn then give it a soak in water for a half hour or so. This causes them to "plump up" a bit. Wrap them in a dish towel (dry) and in they go. As the steak comes off the grille begins "resting", I start the microwave - three minutes on high for two ears.

    They come out RIDICULOUSLY HOT. Tongs or an oven mitt is suggested.

    To think of all the years that I would bring 1-2 gallons of water to a boil for a couple of ears of corn!

    The power output of microwave ovens varies. Plus some ovens lose power as they age. I have a fairly new Panasonic inverter microwave that is Satan approved. It gets things Devilishly hot! But other ovens may not be quite as nuclear in operation.

    Removing the husk from an ear of corn is called shucking. I had an ear this afternoon. I just tossed it in the microwave oven on a paper plate on high for 2 minutes. Then when it came out I added some butter. It was some dynamite sweet corn. Friday I think I'm going to get some more.

    A good thing to add to ur corn is some Parmesan, Cholula hot sauce and pepper/salt. Makes corn so good

    I usually wrap the cob in glad wrap. Nothing else.

    So much better to open the husk a bit, wet, replace the husk, and heat (microwave, boil, grill).... the husk adds so much flavor.
