    Tonight I made corn on the cob in the DCB. It is another great use for the DCB. Here is how I did it.

    I found 6 ears fit in the baker well. I added 1/4 cup water, and microwaved it for 15 minutes.

    Just thought I would share.

    SWEET! How did the corn come out? Were the kernels sort of crisp and plump or more "cooked"?

    Great idea - biggest pain of corn on the cob is boiling the water anyhow. I have 5 ears waiting to be eaten in the fridge - I will try this soon!

    I always add sugar to my corn to help with the sweetness. I have yet to get any complaints.

    Just and FYI there is this suggestion in the grilling cookbook as a side not it actually suggests grilling it when done cooking but I have always just microwaved it.

    did you use the corn cob nobs? I find I have to cut the corn in half to fit in a pot with the nobs so curious if they fit better in the DCB. Thanks :)

    I cooked mine in the DCB with the husk on. I also left the lid on the DCB. I added very little water. If you cut the ends off a little they fit in much easier. I did mine for about 3 minutes for each ear.

    Sorry, nope! I have some old knobs that you have to put in after cooking. (ducking)... If your corn was short, they would probably work?

    I did it husks off. I didn't even think to leave the husks on.
