If you've ever tried shucking corn with a knife you know how dangerous it can be. It's a challenge we're faced with every summer. But how on earth can we safely strip corn kernels? Behold the corn twister.
The corn twister is a kitchen utensil developed by Kuhn Rikon, a Swiss company known for its functional and fun kitchen tools. This handy kitchen utensil comes with two components: a green silicone sleeve to help you grip the ear of corn and a corn-shaped cone with sharp edges.
To use, you simply slide the cone over the corn and watch the kernels pop off. You'll end up with lovely corn kernels you can use in cornbread, salads and soups.
The corn twister is available for purchase at Sur La Table for $8.00.
