This Is How to Make the Summer's Most Talked-About Drink

What Is This?

This tool might come in handy during summer months. To find out what it is and what it's used for,

This new tool is called a corn zipper. You pull it lengthwise along a cob of corn and the sharp teeth will remove two rows of kernels at a time. It's safer than a knife, but I'm not sure what you could do to make it a multi-tasker. Available for $12.

"What ever happened to using a knife?" You slash open your finger trying to dekernal corn on the cob at a family reunion for a bunch of brace-face cousins and bleed over three cobs of corn and (somehow) your aunt's steak. Who cares if its a unitasker? I'd do anything to avoid that.

although it looks pretty cool, would you use it enough to make it worth it? why not just use a knife?

I bought that last week at william-sonoma. my daughter has braces, & has to have the corn stripped. it works well, but evey few rows gets clogged, & you have to take out the stuck kernals.

Oh for crying out loud. What ever happened to using a knife or just eating it off the cob? Lame.

It looks like a uni-tasker to me.

Corn on the cob hurts my teeth, but I prefer the freshness to canned corn. This may be just what I need <3

I love anything that peels of teh skin of fruits or vegetables like a potato peeler. (They come handy on Thanksgiving). This corn zipper seems to be along teh lines of a potato peeler. LOVE IT.

oh i want one of those! canned corn is so blah. you can use corn for so many things..salads, corn puddings, soups. i make corn pudding for almost every holiday and trying to cut the corn off of 10 or 20 cobs is so time consuming!

Kinda takes all the fun out of eating corn on the cob...
