"This works well in the oven. I was leaving home for an hour; I followed the recipe directions, pretty much, put the corn in the oven at 250 degrees and put 3 ice cubes in each foiled cob. When I came home they were crisp and buttery--not soggy at all. My family asked that I do it this way from now on. Note: put a pan under it in the oven, as one leaked and caused a mess."
