Hi. I don't see the tricks for the water bottle on here and none of the recipes load fully for directions. What gives?

This is the first time I ever saw to peel ginger with a spoon.

Tried it with the bundt pan! I think it was Paula Deen's idea.Still messy, and the corn splattered everywhere, and the juice down my hand.
My solution...frozen corn!

I have seen some of these before. Thanks for the reminders and the new ones too. I have a tip, instead of using two bowls to do the corn, use a bunit pan. Put the top part of the corn in the center hole, it will help keep the cob steady, then cut away the corn. It will fall down into the pan. Super easy.
