      3 minutes for 2 ears, 4 minutes for 3 ears. My daughter in law does it that way, only way she ever knew, the first time she cooked corn for my son, he was a bit concerned, but it is fine. (I still prefer it the regular way, but it is still really good, and I tend to do it that way when the kitchen is too hot to get a steamy pot of water going.)

      And I was going to suggest a crock pot too. Even if you have to buy one, they aren't too expensive, and you would still use it post-renovation.

        I have never tried cooking pasta in the microwave oven, but if you do an internet search there are dozens of directions and YouTube videos with instructions. Maybe it is all in the technique/type of pasta you use etc. My search: "cooking pasta in the microwave oven"

        Good Luck
