#9. Heat Gloves

This pair of Heat Gloves has five digits to allow the cook more flexibility to handle hot pans than traditional bulky quilted mitts and squares.

#10. Corn Cob Cleaner

Our Corn Cob Cleaner is a handy tool that strips raw or cooked corn kernels off a husked ear of corn safely, efficiently, and with less mess – often with a single quick motion. The cutting takes place inside the sturdy tube which keeps the blades inside of the tube as the kernels are removed. The tube also contains the corn kernels and starchy juices.
