    Divide butter between 3 small bowls (about 80-85g per bowl). In the first bowl, mix in sundried tomatoes, garlic and chopped basil. In the second, mix in Cajun seasoning, lime juice and coriander. In the third bowl, mix in jalapeño peppers and chives. Season all butter to taste with salt and pepper. 

  • Step 2

    Evenly cover each corn cob with oil, salt and pepper. 

  • Step 3

    To install the grill plate, position it flat on top of the heating element and gently press down until it sits into place, then close the lid. Turn dial to GRILL, set temperature to HI and set time to 10 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin cooking (preheating will take approx. 10–12 minutes). 

  • Step 4

    When the unit has beeped to signify it has preheated and “ADD FOOD” is displayed, open the lid and place the corn cobs on the grill, close lid and begin cooking. Open lid to turn corn regularly. Check if cooked after 8 minutes. 

  • Step 5
