First, the CULINARY COOKING TOOLS STAINLESS STEEL MANDOLINE SLICER WITH V-SHAPED BLADE & EXCLUSIVE STORAGE SAFETY GUARD:
I'd never used a mandarin slicer before, and was nervous about it. All the reviews were scary, about sharp blades and sliced fingertips. I started by slicing carrots, and about the third carrot in, I was thinking about how hard it might be to return this thing - it was ridiculously hard to slice the carrots! They kept just wedging up and I barely had the strength to push them through. I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't even consider that that whole V-design was there for a reason. I was aiming each carrot right at the V, not thinking to use the length of the slicer. Once I figured that out, I sliced through all the carrots so quickly that I can't imagine using a knife again. I proceeded to onions and zucchini and celery and tomatoes and green beans (yes, if you hold them in a bunch, it works) and celery and zucchini, it made quick work out of them all. The learning curve was ridiculously quick, one I realized the aiming for the "V" was the wrong approach, I absolutely love this thing.
On to the NOCRY CUT RESISTANT GLOVES:
A few of the reviewers for the aforementioned slicer said that these were essential. They were right. I hated the holder that was supplied with the slicer, and didn't use it at all, opting instead for these gloves. A couple of times, when I got down to the nubs of the vegetables, I heard the gloves hit a couple of times, but there was absolutely no damage to the gloves (or my fingers). I can't recommend them highly enough. The worst thing I can say about them is that they were stained by the carrots. That is the fault of the carrots, not the gloves, and one run through the washing machine removed that.
On to the ZYLIESS CORN STRIPPER: If you've ever tried to strip corn from the cob using a knife, you'll wonder how you ever got along without this thing. It's got a slightly curved blade that just fits the corn precisely. I stripped through six ears, literally, in less than a minute, without wasting corn or stripping cob. It's one of those utterly simple things that just works so well that it seems underpriced.
Finally, the INSTANT POT IP-DUO80 7-IN-1 PROGRAMMABLE ELECTRIC PRESSURE COOKER:
I was so scared of this appliance! I kept thinking that a pressure cooker can be used as a bomb! I read and re-read and re-re-read the directions, then thought, Just Do It. And I did. I put a dab of butter, and all my onions and beans and carrots in, and set it on "sauté" to soften them. Then I added in my corn and zucchini and celery and tomatoes and corn, set it to "soup," and let it do it's thing. When it beeped that it was finished, I tossed in some of those little pasta stars and set it to "sautee" for about ten minutes, uncovered. I ended up with the best batch of vegetable soup I've ever made. My advice for anyone buying this pressure cooker is, just don't be afraid of it. It really is so intuitive that you can just leap right in. It won't let you hurt yourself, and again…my vegetable soup has my family in awe.
I could go on to the vacuum I bought from Amazon that cleaned up all the veggies I shot onto the floor while learning how to use these other appliances, but I think I'm done here. I give a five-star review to every one of these items.
The serrated stainless steel blade is very sharp, so it takes little pressure to strip the kernels. (You may want to save the plastic blade guard that comes with the slicer, to use for storing it away safely in your kitchen drawer.) The handle is comfortable to grip, and gives you good control so that you don't miss any kernels (not even at the narrow end of the ear of corn). This is a well-made, reasonably sturdy slicer, and it's dishwasher safe.
A less efficient, much larger, corn stripper is the RSVP Shuck Deluxe Corn Stripper, which strips a whole ear of corn with one pass and collects all of the kernels in an easy-to-empty plastic tube. Another less efficient corn stripper is the OXO Good Grips Corn Stripper, which has to be emptied several times for each ear of corn, and is a bit awkward to take apart and reassemble each time.
PS - I purchased two different ones and this is the keeper.
At first use I was running the stripper down the whole length of the cob. Worked well for about a dozen or so ears, then suddenly my corn turned red. Yep, shaved a very deep bit of my thumb off. While dressing up the wound, the woman now takes over. She cleaned out the red corn from the bowl, and about 3 ears in she turned the corn red again. Not a shaved cut like mine just a straight clean cut. Oh man....
Now I took over again with my permanent thumbs up, and started to strip the ears from the halfway point, then flip it over and repeat. Much safer.
