Use your microwave for corn on the cob that's "just right" every time.

How to Make It

Remove husks from corn, and wrap corn individually in plastic wrap. Place corn on a microwave-safe plate, and microwave at HIGH 12 minutes, turning once. Let stand in microwave 2 minutes. Unwrap and, if desired, cut or break corn in half. Serve with butter, salt, and pepper.

Before wrapping the corn in Saran Wrap, slather it in olive oil with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder.

I agree with previous review. I wouldn't use plastic to wrap corn. I always use wax paper wrapped around the corn and twisted on the ends. I also like the first reviewer's idea of leaving inside husk on and wrapping in paper towels. I will try that next time.
