Removing corn kernels from cobs has never been easier. The OXO Good Grips Corn Stripper features a container that catches the kernels as they are stripped from the cob. Simply push the Corn Stripper down the length of the cob and the kernels collect in a convenient 1/2-cup capacity container (approximately one cob). Turn the cob and continue stripping until all kernels are removed. Kernels can be poured out of the top hole of the container into a bowl on onto a plate. The soft, non-slip grips cushion your hand during use and the stainless steel blade will not rust or dull. The Corn Stripper comes apart for easy cleaning and all parts are dishwasher safe.
Top Customer Reviews
- Using a chef's knife. This works well, but kernels go everywhere.
- Kuhn Rikon Corn Zipper. Gouged the cobs, didn't get much corn, what it did get went everywhere. The solid metal one is hard to control if your hands get even a little wet.
- Fox Run Corn Stripper. Flimsy and hard to use. When you do find a cob that fits in the hole, it's hard to control and corn goes everywhere.
- Corn Cutter. Gouged the cob. Blade is a pain to adjust. Hard to hold with one hand while trying to run the cob with the other. Never got the hang of this one. More of a pain that it is worth.
- Kuhn Rikon Corn Zipper. Like a super sharp veggie peeler. Hard to control, real easy to slice yourself. Corn goes everywhere.
- Finally, This OXO Corn Stripper. It cuts the corn without gouging the cob. The container holds a sufficient amount and is easy to empty. I've had no problems with corn escaping. Yes, you can still gouge yourself with this if you are not careful, and a Cut Resistant Glove (in the appropriate size) is recommended. Some corn mess, but a lot less than with other methods.
Bottom line: I'm not usually one to have a bunch of unitaskers around, but occasionally I'll find one that really does make a job faster and/or neater. This is one of those gadgets. This one is a winner and a keeper.
Just an update to say that I've had this stripper for five years and I'm still happy with it. Last night we used it to strip two dozen ears of beautiful farm fresh corn. With Mrs. Boilermate husking and de-silking the corn and me stripping it we were able to do the whole batch in just about an hour. The reservoir holds about 1/2 to 3/4 of an ear before I had to empty it. There was a small amount of juices squirting as I ran the cob and a few stray kernels escaped but overall the job was done with a minimal amount of mess.
When a friend of mine got married this summer this was one of the items on their wish list. I happily bought it and added to the gift basket I put together for him and his new bride.
First product I tried was a very common design with a cylindrical blade with a zigzag edge that goes all the way around the kernel and is supposed to strip the kernels in one stroke. It smashed the kernels and the blade didn't hug the cob well. Fail.
Next up was a lovely all-stainless one from Kuhn-Rikon, a brand I normally love, that has a blade not unlike this Oxo, but on a handle. Worked ok-ish but didn't seem sharp enough to cleanly slice the kernels away and the cutting edge was narrow, so it took many strokes and bisected too many kernels.
Next up was another from Kuhn Rikon with a razor sharp curved edge. RAZOR sharp! Worked well but holy crap, it's easy to cut your finger! I read the reviews and knew of the danger. Thought I, "Pff, these people are babies. Just be careful!" Well, even knowing this thing was dangerous, I sliced flesh more than once. Worked ok but hard to control and cut-resistant gloves are a must.
Finally, the Oxo. Works great, gets most of the corn and leaves the cob. Easy and fast and catches the kernels. Goes in the dishwasher.
While the cutting portion on both is similar, the OXO seems to slide through the corn, and I was able to strip six ears of corn in under five minutes; a task that would have taken me three times as long, with a much bigger mess with my Pampered Chef tool.
The OXO was not only fast, but the catcher contained most of the mess -- kernels flying everywhere -- and did a good job weeding out the stray silks that remained stubbornly attached to the cob after shucking. It cut the kernels off cleanly, with no tough cob pieces attached (why I don't just like to use a chef's knife) and got to within the last row on the cob cleanly.
This was easy to hold, easy to use and, while one of those "gadgety" single use kitchen items I try to avoid, worth it to save time and effort on what can be a messy job. It's earned its spot in my kitchen cabinet.
