Fun and easy to use, the colorful two-piece design resembles an ear of corn. To use, simply secure the green silicone husk on one end of the ear, and the corn-shaped piece on the opposite end. With a smooth and simple twist and push, the Corn Twister begins to strip the kernels off fresh or cooked corncobs with its razor sharp stainless steel serrated edge and scraping rivets. Designed for safety, the Corn Twister protects hands by keeping them away from the cutting mechanism.

Kernels are cleanly removed, without crushing. The freshly removed full kernels can be enjoyed as a side dish and are a delightful addition to a variety of dishes including salads, corn and bean salsa, corn fritters and more. The Corn Twister is also a handy tool for use at the end of the corn season, allowing you to freeze its sweet flavor for year round enjoyment.

For easy storage, the yellow corncob piece nests inside the green husk, and serves as a protective sheath for the sharp edge and rivets.

The Kuhn Rikon Corn Twister is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.  It has a suggested retail price of $16 and is sold at specialty and online retailers including Sur La Table and Amazon.com.
