  4. Place your cobs in the microwave and steam for a duration ranging from 4 to 5 minutes. When the kernels are ready, they take on a darker color than the initial one- when they were raw. Also, note that you can do four cobs at a go. In this case, just steam them for 2 to 3 minutes and then turn them over and do another 2-3 minutes.
