clear InputField

What's the best way to assign the value of InputField to a variable
and then clear its contents?

This seems to work:

InputField[Dynamic[y, {
   (y = #) &,
   (z = y; y = "";) &
   }], Number]
Dynamic[z]

But I'm wondering if there's a way to just tell InputField to clear
itself without having to use a dummy variable. Also the fact that I
have to tell InputField to treat the string y as a number seems
strange.

Thanks for the help!
