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.
