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!
