Here’s how to cut corn off the cob…the mess-free way! This simple trick makes it easy to use the kernels for salads and soups.


  • Corn cobs
  • Bundt pan or tube pan (or rimmed baking sheet or dish, with a folded towel under it)
  • Large chef’s knife


  1. Place the tip of the corn cob into the hole in the middle of the pan. Hold the bottom of the corn cob securely with your non-cutting hand. (If using a baking sheet or dish, place a folded towel underneath to prevent slippage. Hold the corn vertically and rest the bottom right on the sheet.)
  2. Use a large chef’s knife to cut in a downward motion, letting the corn cobs kernels collect neatly into the pan.
