Product Description


Ever tried slicing or sawing kernels off a cob with a regular kitchen knife? It can be tricky, messy, and downright dangerous.

This cutter strips the kernels easily, safely and conveniently. You just place it on the end of the corn blade down and TWIST while pushing down gently. Corn comes right off! Now you can have fresh-picked corn flavor in salsa recipes, for canning, and your six year old who just lost his two front teeth won't feel left out.

Flexible adjustable metal cutter with plastic coated wire handle Use to strip kernels from an ear of corn with some simple twisting.

Plastic coated handle has adjustable serrated blade

Dimension: 9-3/4" L

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Please note that for best results when using this item, place the hole with razor edge first onto the tip of the corn cob and TWIST. This will result in easy and clean removal of the corn kernels onto your plate or bowl. The gadget doesn't work as well if you try to just push down on it. It will feel awkward and you might even break it that way. Please twist down. Thank you.

This works great for scrapping corn off the cob. No scrapping the skin off your knuckles like many other styles of corn scrapers. My only suggestion is to put a nail in the middle of a board to stick your ear of corn on...especially if you are doing a lot of corn.

This corn cutter I bought 2 of them and I'm glad I did due to the first cutter broke before I got done. Also you need to have a nail driven into a 4x4 piece of wood to put the corn cob on to hold that corn ear before using the corn stripper. Then it work good. I don't think that I'd get this product again. to messy and clumsy to use. better idea some where

I have to say that the instructions that they give with this thing are bad.

They tell you that you should "twist" around the cob in order to cut. The first time I tried it that is what I attempted. It was a frustrating mess. It occurred to me then that creating some sort of "nail through wood" device (to hold the cob still) would be necessary.

I didn't use the thing for a long time afterwards because I hadn't gotten around to making the device. When I finally used it again I decided to skip the recommended "twisting" and simply push straight down. It worked like magic. The only issue is that the kernels tend go all over the place.

This first time I used this it mangled the corn and made a mess. That was the first ear, on the second ear of corn it broke, one of the metal "teeth" came off. It actually worked a little better but still made a mess. I would not replace it with the same device.

This is hard to use. Trying to push down while keeping the corn upright is difficult. It is very flimsy. I would have sent it back, but it was only $7. Don't order this. I also ordered a corn cutter by Oxo. It is excellent. There is a video about it on Amazon.

What a complete waste of money!! At first I was excited about this product. It was much more flexible than the other corn cutter I purchased. Unfortunately, that didn't last. My 4 year old was helping and as we pushed the cutter down the ear of corn, the rivets actually just broke off one of the blades. She's 4, there is no way she should have been able to bust the rivets off! I have been cutting and freezing corn since I was a kid with my Mom and thought I could start the same tradition at my house but I seriously have my doubts after having 2 different cutters break on our very first attempt. My Mom has had her corn cutter for 20+ years and has never had any problems. I guess they just don't make things like they used to!!

I received no instructions on how to use this product. The blade looks like a saw, so the first use I spun the cob while pushing it up thru the cutter. I started at the large end. The results were cobs free of all kernels except for the top (small end). To keep your hands free of loose kernels, start the process in a horizontal position. After you get a third of the way through, turn it vertically and grab the cob from the top (large end)and continue spinning the cob while holding the Corn Cob Cutter in the other hand. Use a large plate or bowl to catch the kernels as you process the corn. I know there are a lot of negative reviews for this type of cutter, but I found I get better results using this corn cob cutter than using a knife. It cuts through the cobs like a warm knife through butter. (Note: I used this tool after blanching the cobs so I could freeze for use through the winter.)

The stamped metal and not-so-concentric blades present a problem. Effectively, it is hard to get this cutter to work properly in its factory form. Due to the lack of control and blade precision, it is difficult to get close to the cob. The remedy I discovered employs several silicone and/or rubber bands.

1) around the concentric blades opposite the cutting surface, place an extremely tight, high quality silicone cooking band (rubber should suffice but the tension may break the band). This keeps the blades in the proper concentric circular shape close to the cob surface

2) bring the handles closer together by placing several rubber bands between the two handles on opposite sides of the cutting cylinder. This will also improve the concentricity in addition to making the overall tool more rigid

3) use clean nitrile gloves for gripping the slippery corn cob
