Removing kernels from a cob of corn has never been easier. This corn stripper has a container that catches the kernels as they are stripped from the cob. Simply push the corn stripper down the length of the cob and the kernels collect in the container; turn the cob and continue stripping until all of the kernels are removed. A top hole in the ½ cup capacity container allows the kernels to be poured out neatly into a bowl or onto a plate. A soft, non-slip grip cushions the hand during use. Disassembles for easy cleaning. Dimensions: 4¾"L × 2¾"W Materials: Stainless steel blade Care: Dishwasher safe

The corn stripper completely eliminates corn niblets from flying all over the kitchen as you use it. The ones I have had previously (or using a knife) end up with corn on the table and floor. The inventor of this one was really thinking.

5.0 out of 5 starscorn stripperJune 20 2008
By B. Paquet - Published on Amazon.com
I really love this thing! There is not such a mess in taking the corn off the cob and having it go everywhere. I just get a tiny bit accumulated and it doesn't splash everywhere, it stays in one place. I think it's very easy to clean and I put it in the dishwasher. The only thing is that it does take a bit of practice as I sometimes need to go down the cob again. You need to keep it close to the cob. But for me, this is a really great kitchen tool.

5.0 out of 5 starsWorks great, makes stripping corn easyJune 23 2008
By Mel M - Published on Amazon.com
My husband has a retainer and so he can't eat corn on the cob. With this little gadget, he can enjoy grilled corn with the rest of us. This is much better than other corn strippers we've used, because it has the corn catching cup and nice wide teeth. It works well, but be careful to follow the included instructions on how to hold your corn, or you might cut yourself! A really nice, convenient product.

4.0 out of 5 starsSome reviews not fair!July 13 2009
By V. Bryce - Published on Amazon.com
I don't think it's fair to the product (especially of a sharp, cutting one) to give it a bad review and placing the fault on it, rather than the carelessness of those using it. People that are handling sharp objects should always be extra careful, whether it's this stripper or a knife. You wouldn't give a knife a bad review just because you cut yourself with it now would you? I happen to think this product is fantastic and yes, it is very sharp, but that's the point right!

5.0 out of 5 starsOXO Corn Stripper is wonderful!July 27 2008
By S. Vassello - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased this OXO Corn Stripper because I have 2 children in braces and am not fond of any other corn stripping method. We tried the OXO last night - we were all really impressed. It's very easy to use - just run the exposed blade in the back along the corn and not only does it smoothly cut the corn, the corn is all collected in the small container on the front! No mess! After cutting the corn, you simply take the 2 piece container apart and rinse with water - very, very easy to clean! One word of warning, I would not let small children use this corn stripper because the sharp blade is exposed in the back and they could accidently hurt themselves. All in all, I gave this product 5 stars since I thought it was awesome!
