Corn = High as an Elephants Eye.

 
I live in Iowa.
There is lots of Corn in Iowa.
Pretty much everywhere you look. 
Corn. Cob. Corn. Cob. Corn. Cob.
No complaints here.
I love corn.
Served all ways. 
Fresh. Grilled. Frozen. Boiled. Steamed.Microwaved. BBQ.

Just last week I finished off my frozen corn from last years harvest.
I am thinking that I need to invest in one of these for this years end of the season stock up for the year. 
Has anyone used one of these before?  Do they work?  Is there a different variety that works better?
Nutrition Info. Taken from here.

Corn is a starchy vegetable (technically, the kernel is a grain), which makes it higher in calories than other veggies; calorie-wise, it’s similar to grains such as rice. One cup of cooked corn contains 130 calories and 1.8 grams of fat. It’s an excellent source of thiamin, a B-vitamin that helps produce energy, and a good source of fiber, protein, vitamin C and potassium. It’s also packed with lutein, saponins, and maizenic acid — all phytochemicals that have been associated with heart health and cancer prevention. Corn also contains yellow carotenoid pigments, including eye-protecting antioxidant zeaxanthin.
