  1. This is very interesting, I hope I remember next summer when the corn comes in!!

    1. That *is* a pretty sweet looking method.

      1. I saw this after all the corn trucks shut down in Sept., I'll have to remember to try it too.

        1. so neat! SUPER TIP! will share.

          thanks hank!

          1. Those gloves are a great idea for this. I've burned my hands too many times w/ microwaved corn and my oven mitts are too big.

              I got ONE of those oven mitts as a gift for Christmas last year... It is pretty awesome, but I wish they'd have sold them as a pair!

                Where do you get them? They'll make great Christmas presents!

                    Or Walmart, sorta anyplace that carries "As seen on TV" products.

                    I just ordered a pair off ebay for $24.49 including shipping.

                    cvs has them too -- "ove gloves." they are bulky, but work well. wish they were longer, though.

                      I have a pair, without the grid marks, they came with my Popeil rotisserie, I always considered them to be the best thing about this gift, indispensible for removing large roasts from the pan. I should use them more often I guess.
