It is time for Gadget Wednesday again. Here you will find out about great kitchen gadgets that I love and find helpful in my kitchen. As always, feel free to leave me comments about your favorite gadgets. Who knows, I might blog about them next!
Today I want to talk about the Kuhn Rikon Corn Zipper*. I first saw this gadget sitting in a doctor's office looking through magazines. I made mental note of the advertisement to look it up when I came home. What I saw and read online sounded very promising and so I decided to order it.
This little tool has seriously made a difference. In the summer we love to grill a lot of corn. I always have my husband throw on a few extra pieces of corn just to have enough leftover for a salad or creamed corn the next day. While this gadget works like a charm on grilled corn it does just as wonderful of a job on fresh uncooked corn on the cob as well. In the past, I have always used a knife to cut the kernels off, and while this method works ok, this gadget makes the task a breeze and is much safer. It is very sharp and allows you to cut all the kernels off the cob in no time. In fact, it is so easy to use that even my 8 year old can work it.
I love this tool and if you have been looking for an easier way to utilize all your leftover grilled corn, this might be your answer. Look for a great way to use it in tomorrow's post!
