Corn Desilker Ring — "All silks left behind"


No batterie de cuisine can be considered complete without one.

From websites:



New innovative design for corn desilker removes all those pesky, clinging silks in one swipe.

Just push ring down over the ear of corn and the flexible brushes remove the silk.

Now you can prepare corn for freezing or canning with less aggravation.

Dishwasher-safe (top rack).  

No damage to the kernels.

Fits any size ear of corn.

Nice gripping edge.


$7.02 (corn not included).

Peal off the husk. Hold ear by tip in non-dominant hand. With paper towel apply spiral wipe over exposed ear. Flip ends in non-dominant hand and repeat. No silk. Expense: 1 square paper towel (can be used for ten (10), or more, ears before requiring replacement).

Aw... thanks Joe. By the way, I got my Gefu, double conical zucchini/carrot shredder gizmo yesterday. Worth every penny!

If it works, I'll order a dozen.
