And we can all agree that it's not the most exciting -- nor the easiest -- task.
While Rach has her own trick that involves inverting a small bowl inside a bigger bowl to better catch the kernels, chef and Milk Street Magazine founder Chris Kimball was *really* excited to introduce it to us to a tool that *may* just make the job even easier.
"Are you ready to be amazed?" he asks Rach.
Basically, the Cob Corn Stripper that he went on to demonstrate -- which is only $7.99 -- claims to safely strip whole cobs of corn with a serrated stainless steel blade when you stick the cob in and twist.
Watch Chris strip an entire ear of corn in seconds in the video above!
"It makes a little bit of a mess on the counter," Chris admits after he's finished.
(But hey, it's only an hour-long show, and he was trying to get the job done STAT!)
