Corn zipper

Seems like an easy way to remove corn kernels from the cob. Anyone ever use one? See link below.

    We have a corn zipper. It does what it's supposed to but a knife is just as good.

      I bought the silver metal corn zipper from Kuhn Rikon. I love it and it makes it very easy and quick to remove the kernels for salads and soups. Its the first gadget I've bought in a years
      that I use.

        Just use your madolin if you've got one. You can even set the depth with that. One tool--many uses: saves kitchen storage space

          I believe the OXO is the one Cooks Illustrated recommends.
          I don't have my copy here at the office with me, but if memory serves, they liked the way it took the corn off the cob and that it collected into a cup for easy collection.
          You can find it at bed bath and beyond.

            Never used one. I think I'll stick to a sharp knife and an angel food cake pan (centre is perfect for holding the cob and the pan catches all the kernels.
