I can’t wait for that first cob of corn – all buttered up and headed for my mouth. Mmmmm, that’s what I’m talking about!
Personally, I eat my corn on the cob 8 times out of 10. Most of my family does, as well. My middle daughter, Brittany, who’s also a vegetarian, eats it off the cob 10 times out of 10. Yeah, I don’t know where I went wrong with that girl.
For Britt and the rest of us on those 2 occasions, cutting the delicious corn off of the cob, that it so dearly wants to hang onto, can be a hassle.
I found this little gizmo online today, though, so it should be here in plenty of time for fresh corn season.
It’s the OXO Good Grips Corn Stripper and it’s one of the cool kids. As you run it down the cob, it extracts the kernels from the cob, placing them in its convenient ½-cup capacity container. You simply turn the cob and let it do all the work. The Kernels can be poured out of the top hole of the container onto your plate (or bowl, salad, etc.). The soft, non-slip grips cushion your hand during use and the stainless steel blade will not rust or dull. The Corn Stripper comes apart for easy cleaning and all parts are dishwasher safe. To top it all off, it’s just $11.99.
