With summer in full swing and the temperatures heating up, I’m finding that we’re spending more and more time around the grill. We’re big fans of grilling the norm: steaks, chicken, vegetables (and even grilled pizza!), so whenever OXO offered to send over new tools to help out in the grilling process, we were all for it!
I love roasted corn on the cob and I would probably eat it every single night if I could. My sister, though, has always asked for the kernels to be cut off. And my mom still grants her wish to this day when we have dinner at our parents’ house. So when I opened up OXO’s Corn Stripper, I immediately thought of Roxy. The sharp teeth on the end zip right down the cob, collecting the kernels in a handy 1/2-cup capacity container. The non-slip grip is comfortable and the tool as a whole is dishwasher safe and super-easy to clean.
I also fell in love with their extra-long Good Grips Tongs. It’s no secret that I’m afraid of fire & heat. Ridiculous, I know, since I work with ovens and stoves on a regular basis (I’m the girl with the oven mitt that comes up to my elbow). But, with these 16″ tongs, I can flip and toss anything on the grill with confidence and ease!
Both tools were perfect in helping create this Roasted Corn Salsa. It’s filled with good-for-you ingredients and it’s amazing as a garnish, a dip or even on it’s own. Here’s to Summer Grilling!
