Hook this simple device into a drill press or a hand held drill and clean the silk off sweet corn in a snap

This simple special designed brush fits into a drill press or the base equipped model uses a battery powered or electric hand drill. The spinning brush quickly cleans off annoying corn silk making the process of cleaning just a few ears to bushels of sweet corn a labor saving snap.

If you love sweet corn you will love this sweet corn cleaner from Cottage Craft Works. They are the only ones who carry it online. Just like many of their other unique products, this little gadget was found during a new product tour on the back roads in the Amish country side.

The sweet corn cleaner was designed by an Amish gentleman who wanted to have a simple way of cleaning the silk off large batches of sweet corn. If you have spent hours using a hand brush to clean off corn silk you will quickly appreciate the labor savings this little inexpensive gadget can provide.

The brush has just enough stiffness to clean the silk off but does not harm the delicate corn.

If you produce and clean large batches of sweet corn for home, a produce stand, restaurant, or even a grocery store you will also quickly see the labor savings in using the Drill Powered Sweet Corn Cleaner.

Model P#10 attaches to a drill press and Model H#20 comes mounted on a wooden base as pictured. The base can be clamped on to a table using a C-clamp or bolted to a board for ongoing use.

The Drilled Powered Sweet Corn Cleaner is a snap to clean as well. Unlike other food processing equipment that takes so long to set up and then clean after words. You will be using this little gadget even for just a few ears of corn at a time. Simply let the silk dry and blow off the brush for storage.

You can purchase either the drill press brush or the mounted base model from Cottage Craft Works.

Take a look around the site as it contains a full line general store just full of useful and practical products just like the Drill Powered Sweet Corn Cleaner.

      How fun! This coming July, I could use a gizmo like this because I usually buy 24 ears (or more!) of sweet white and yellow corn. I liked the photograph of those "clean" ears.
