Whether you need to cut corn off the cob for a sweet end-of-summer salad or to save a braces-clad diner from eternal torture (we swear cleaning those kernels out of brackets took hours), no one is a stranger to the hassle that is wrangling flying kernels. Avoid the mess and the fuss with this simple trick (no fancy corn cutter kit needed).
Grab a small bowl and place it upside down inside a larger bowl. Use the bottom of the small bowl as a stand for the corn. Hold onto the top of the corn and slice down the sides with a sharp knife. The kernels will collect in the larger bowl.
Pro tip: You can also use a Bundt pan in the same way; hold the corn on top of the center spout and use a sharp knife to slice down the sides. The kernels will collect in the pan.
