Your Missing BBQ Tool: The Chef’n Cob Corn Stripper

It’s got to be close to 100 degrees here today, and if nothing else, it reminds me that we are well into barbecue season. There are so many food reasons that I love summer and corn is just another one of those reasons. Yes, I love corn and so does my son no matter how it’s prepared. We love corn soup, cornbread, corn soufflé, and corn on the cob and corn off the cob, which brings me to today’s review for the Chef’n Cob Corn Stripper.

Most of the time when I make corn I’ll do it on the grill. If we’re having a lot of people, I may boil it and lately, I’ve even been experimenting with corn in the sous vide. But what do you do when you have that beautiful fresh corn, and you want to take it off the cob and maybe cook it in a pan or on a flat top? What’s the easiest way to get it off the cob?

I’ve tried many different ways to cut the corn off the cob, and many different devices. I have friends who just use a knife, and they’re pretty happy doing it that way. Of course, they’ve never tried the Chef’n Cob Corn Stripper. This is an under $10 item that I think does a really good job of making it easy to strip the corn off the cob.
What I do is square up the ends of the corn, put one end flat against the cutting board and grab the Chef’n Cob Corn Stripper. I set it on one end and then just pull the cob through the device. I didn’t find chunks of cob as I have with some corn stripper devices. This is quick and easy, so it’s great when my son wants corn. We happen to have fresh corn in the house most of the time, and in a couple of minutes I can have multiple cobs stripped and corn cooking in the pan. I found this to be the best way to get corn off the cob, so if you like corn and you want an easier way to enjoy it when you’re not going to grill it, give the Chef’n Cob Corn Stripper a try. I have not tried this with corn that is already cooked but I have recently been told that it works that way as well.
