7 Corn Gadgets You Definitely Need This Summer
From grill baskets to butter dispensers, we've got everything for this fan-favorite side dish.
When it comes to summer sides, we'd be remiss to not highlight the versatility of corn. Whether you're eating it on the cob, in a salad, off the grill or doused in butter, one fact remains true — it's simply delicious. But in order to enjoy corn at its best, some gadgets are required. We've rounded up our top picks to make cooking corn in any form easy as it gets.
Removing corn from the cob can be almost as painstaking as shucking an ear of corn, unless you have the right tools. We discovered this peeler from OXO last summer and were immediately obsessed with how well it perfectly scraped the corn from the cob with ease.
If your favorite way to enjoy corn is straight off the grill, make sure each ear cooks evenly without risking them rolling around with this grill basket. The handle features height adjustments, so the company claims it can fit corn of any length or width.
Not only does this butter dispenser make it easy to smear an even layer along your corn, but it's also simply fun to use. It can be used for any dish that is made better with the topping of a little butter, including potatoes, steak and popcorn. But we think it makes the perfect addition to your summer corn toolkit.
Easily stripping all the kernels of your ear of corn in one swipe might sound too good to be true, but Chef'n promises that's what you'll get with this gadget. The dishwasher-safe gadget is perfect for quickly preparing homemade salsa, salads or any other dish where corn is involved.
Simply put, holding onto your ear of corn while eating it off the cob is a pain. Make that process easier with these corn holders. The soft handles make them comfortable to grip, plus they're dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. This set comes with eight holders, so there are enough for the whole family.
