7. Use a Bundt Pan to Remove Corn Kernels from the Cob

Someone gave me a Bundt pan as a wedding present and I was tempted to just get rid of it. Who makes Bundt cakes more than once a year? But I hung onto mine because it helps me fly through one of my most dreaded cooking tasks—removing fresh corn kernels from the cob. I used to do that on a cutting board, but the cob would slip and the kernels would fly off in every direction. Now, I just lodge the cob into the center of the Bundt pan to hold it steady while I cut. The kernels fall neatly to the bowl below as I cut them. MAGIC.
