Chef'n Cob Corn Stripper
This Cob Corn Stripper (not to be confused with a lady in a cornfield on a Hitch 'Er Up Stripper Pole) better work damn good, and without making a mess, because despite my rant last week about breaking up ground beef in a skillet, I have discovered a new biggest P in the A kitchen task: stripping corn.
It's not like de-kerneling a corn cob with a knife is hard, but it is hard to do without making a huge mess of kernels and husk remnants and corn juice flying all over the kitchen. And when the precariously positioned cob slips during stripping...hope you like blood in your fresh salsa.
Chef'n says their twist & push Cob Corn Stripper removes all hassle associated with fresh corn kernel acquisition. The compact cylinder is lined with stainless steel blades that strip cobs in seconds as you make a single twisting-pushing combo move. At printing, the Cob Corn Stripper was a new item in Chef'n's line, and had only 2 reviews. For what that's worth, both gave it 5 stars and said it "works great" and "works beautifully."
