Frozen Corn Kernels

Frozen Corn Kernels

Add microwaved frozen corn kernels to soups, stews, chilis, chowders, and salads, for a burst of texture and subtle sweetness. Or enjoy it as a side dish on its own!

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time. 

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.


Cook Times


1 cup (100g) 2-3 mins
3 cups (300g) 6 mins
5 cups (500g) 9-10 mins


  1. Evenly spread the frozen corn kernels in the Anyday dish, and cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for the time listed in the table, or until corn kernels are tender.

Cooking Tips

  • For the most even cooking, stir halfway through the cook time.
  • Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper for a quick side dish.
