Corn on the cob
If you don’t have a grill but you’re craving corn on the cob, you’re usually facing the messy task of boiling it in a giant pot of water and trying to pry the husk off without burning yourself. Forget that mess. Instead, just put an entire cob in the microwave – husk and all – and microwave it for four minutes. It’ll be cooked, and the husk will slide right off.
