Problem is, cutting the kernels off the cob is almost as messy as actually digging right into it. I've definitely looked down to discover half of the kernels next to my plate as opposed to on it where they should be. I never really put much thought into a solution until I came across a pretty unique tool — the Corn Kerneler.
The corn kerneler features stainless blades that quickly and easily remove the kernels. The best part is that there's no mess because the kerneler holds the kernels in the basin until you're ready to pour them out through the handy spout. Also, if you're a real corn lover and know you want two pieces, the basin can hold up to two cobs of corn!
