Corn on the cob is hard to resist, so you might as well carry some floss in your purse if you know corn on the cob is in your near future. But if you're not a fan of biting the corn off the cob, we don't blame you. Yes, you could always try to cut the kernels off with a knife, but that can be a time-consuming hassle. Try out this handy dandy corn peeler for less than $10 instead!

Corn peelers are small and easy to use. All you have to do is hold on to the corn upright and slide the corn peeler down along one side of the cob. You might be thinking, why would I buy this when I can just buy prepackaged corn that is already removed from the cob? For one thing, corn on the cob is much cheaper than canned or frozen corn. Also, you can't grill frozen corn, so if you prefer grilled corn over frozen or canned, then a corn peeler is the perfect tool for you to use. Check out some of these yummy corn recipes below.
