Corn skimmer

I'm not a huge fan of kitchen gadgets that serve only one purpose.  But once in a while I find one that's an exception to the rule.  And that's this:  The OXO Good Grips Corn Skimmer.  Yes I am serious.  It's awesome. 

I'm a huge fan of Grilled Corn on the Cob but not a huge fan of the endless flossing that results from the treat.  And therefore I have spent quite a bit of time finding ways to get said corn from it's cozy home on the cob.  Most methods have proven imperfect (and a couple downright dangerous) until I found the Skimmer.  Cue the sounds of angels...   No more risking cuts etc trying to run the kernels off with whatever sharp knife I first reach for.  Nope, OXO Good Grips came up with a computer mouse like object with a little toothed metal mouth that glides down your cob and perfectly removes the golden goodness. 

And, as if that wasn't good enough, it also acts as a measuring cup.  Although I'm not entirely sure why, you can tip it one it's end and see when you have exactly one half cup. Well, either way, I think you should check it out the next time that you're at a Kitchen Supply store.  Or you could find it online here:OXO Good Grips Corn Stripper.  Check it out and later in the week I'll have a recipe for the most yummy Grilled Corn Salad that you can imagine.
Oh, and did I forget to mention that it snaps apart for easy cleaning?  Life changing.  Sorta.
