    1. A dishwasher-safe cob stripper to make the perfect salsa appetizer for the upcoming holidays. Or even corn pudding, cornbread, or any other yummy dish you'll be baking rather than using canned corn. Andddd, ITS CORN! "I can't imagine a more beautiful thing" and now I'll be thinking of that adorable kiddo, Tariq, who loves corn all day.

    Promising review: "This is my second container of this oven cleaner, I love it! My oven was pretty grimy and I used this cleaner with just a damp rag, I didn't use the steel wool pad it comes with. I honestly was shocked it cleans so well, my oven looks brand-new again. I love the fact that it has zero harsh chemicals and I don't have to wear my rubber gloves to keep from getting a chemical burn. This will always be my go-to oven cleaner, it's the best!" —layla61955
