I use a knife and a bundt pan. Place the corn on top of the funnel of the bundt pan, usinfg the knife remove the kernels, the pan will catch them all. I have a gadget that wasn't very expensive, it is suposed to adjust to the different thickness of the cob but it really doesn"t work that great.

Nyeer, I found that little gizmo at Lee's ... watch the video, they have a corn cutter that looks just like the creamer but is basically just a larger diameter piece of PVC pipe with the corn cutter you have mounted in it.
I can just see Alton Brown playing with one of these ...
