If you've recently been grocery shopping, there's a good chance you've noticed piles of corn popping up in the produce section. Summer is here! And that means corn in all the ways: grilled, steamed, raw, you name it. The only problem? The cob.

Whether it's needing to remove every kernel from the cob before cooking or trying to alleviate the pain of getting threads stuck in your teeth, let's all just admit it: Corn off the cob is always better. It's easier to eat, to combine with other fixings (like cheese and mayo for creamy elote) and just, in general. But since there's nothing like the taste of fresh corn come summer, the frozen bags just won't cut it.

Luckily, OXO has created the perfect gadget for getting corn off the cob in mere seconds. The new Corn Peeler looks like your classic Y-peeler and is designed just for corn. It functions similarly to any vegetable peeler. Just start at the top of the veg, apply some pressure and swipe down. You'll get perfectly plucked kernels without the mess of the cob. Check out the peeler in action below!

If the satisfying swipes of corn aren't enough to sell you, the price tag will be. This gadget is less than $7 on Amazon! We tried it on both raw and cooked corn, and it works like a dream either way. For any fans of corn salad, corn pie or, you know, just corn, in general, we can see this coming in handy pretty regularly.
