Just to update, so you know I didn't forget, I went to the fruit stand at 2:30 today to buy some corn and they were closed... Maybe whoever was supposed to be working it was sick or something.

Wow! That's cool. I'm glad it worked for you. I was sure hoping it wasn't some sort of net scam.

It works for grilled corn. It doesn't quite shake out like the vid, although they were small (light) ears, a little bit of squeezing was needed once things got started, but not a piece of silk stayed with the cob.
Good find.

Outstanding! I'm glad it worked. Can't believe I missed finding that trick with all the corn I've eaten!

It's so much easier than standing there shucking hot ears of corn. I didn't even use gloves. The ear dropped about an inch with the first few shakes, you could see just one layer of husk remained around it, a little squeeze on the top, a couple more shakes and out it came. Clean as a whistle.
