I use the micro cooker to fix mine too. My microwave has a vegetable setting (one for frozen and another for fresh) so I don't know how long it cooks.

The Deep Covered Baker is great with Corn on the cob! Just put a 1/4 cup of water in and the cover and put in the microwave for 12-15 minutes and it is great!!!

Could they be referring to the fact that you can insert the corn cob nobs before cooking in the microwave (or putting in the boiling water) . . . .

Put them in the baker unwrapped, husks and all. Cook them 4 minutes per ear, up to 6 ears 24 minutes. Let them sit after cooking about 5 minutes don't worry, they'll still be hot. Then, remove husk/strings all at once - and enjoy steamed corn!

That is great, Scott! If I am reading this right you don't add water to yours, right?

You can wrap them in parchment paper and cook one ear 3-4 minutes, depending on your microwave, but I love the DCB tip! Sweet corn season is about 1 month away in Iowa!!

no water - just KISS! (Keep It Simple, Scott!) They're AWESOME. You can butter/season after you pull off husks and silk.

Careful - when you have all the husks bent back and "break", you'll want some kind of hand protection b/c the husks have a LOT of water inside and it is H O T hot! Enjoy your DCB!

Thanks, Scott! I truly appreciate your input and tips. I can't wait to try it here before I demo it!

Cross sell the kernel cutter, corn knobs, oven mitts or oven pads and corn butterer.

I LOVE the idea of cooking corn in the DCB with the husks still on!! This is a fabulous idea.

Just a thought, but you will probably want to peel back the husks and inspect the cobs first. Sometimes, there are little bugs (yuck!) or rotten sections that you can't tell till you open them.
