"From a tin?" You mean a can? Canned corn is crap. At least buy frozen corn. It's a world of difference, no matter how you cook it.

I couldn't agree more.

Microwaved corn on the cob is pretty damn good. Leave the husk on, and it steams right in the husk. Not as good as grilled cob, but very fresh and natural tasting. Try it!

This! Cool

The microwave is also a great rice cooker. 5 minutes on 100% power followed by 15 minutes at 40% power.

Never tried that. I cook corn (we call it mealies) in the microwave, but by removing the husk and boiling the whole cob.

Will give it a go.

Roasted corn in the husk, cooked at 375F in the oven is awesome. I rotate it a quarter turn every 15 minutes. I do use silicon gloves to husk, and find hot silk comes off much easier than raw and cold.

Also, the Instant Pot is great at reheating foods...
