Cob Holders: Friend or Foe?

Corn on the cob holders have gotten more high end from the bendy yellow plastic ears of corn ones I had as a child. I like the idea of cob holders, but I am not sure how well they work in real life. In my experience they always got so greasy with melted butter my fingers slipped right off. I always ended up taking them off and eating the old fashioned way before the end of the row.

What's your take? Cob holders: essential corn tool or kitschy waste of time?
