This corn scraper is one of the highest-quality tools on the market for getting corn off the cob. Often when we eat corn on the cob, plenty of kernels end up being left behind. What a waste! This corn cutter from Shimomura is the answer to all your problems.
Easily strip three rows of corn kernels from the cob at the same time, with this perfectly-sized forked and curved blade. It fits the shape of corn cobs so well that it cuts smoothly and reduces mess. This tool was designed to cut cleanly at the root of the kernel, to avoid damaging or crushing them, giving you presentable kernels to use in cooking or even as a garnish. It works just as good no matter whether the corn is pre-cooked or raw.
Recently in Japan corn has been growing in popularity, and tools like this have become essential for many chefs. With dishes like corn ramen, and corn soup being taken up a notch, it's not uncommon to see corn cut in rows of three, doused in butter and grilled or charred. It's great as a side, and often seen as a garnish on the top of a bowl of corn ramen or a similar dish.
The blade is made entirely of 18-8 stainless steel, which is a higher grade than the typical 18-0 stainless used on most commercial kitchenware. This means that it's stronger, more rust-resistant, and more heat-resistant than most alternative products.
