Corn peelers slide over an ear of corn to seamlessly remove kernels and stop you from having to deal with messy cobs. But unless you have small children at home, save yourself some cash and opt for a knife to peel your corn.
Another great kitchen tool to invest in when you have small children is this pancake pen, which you can fill with up to three cups of pancake batter. Then, allow your little one to create different letters and shapes in the pan. Also great for when mommy gives up and just needs to drink some batter in her crying corner.
