Is there a built-in command to delete the contents of a cell in a single keystroke within an org-mode table? Note, I don't want to delete the row, just the cell contents.

If not, how would you write this?
org-table-blank-field, bound to C-c SPC and present in the “Tbl” menu.
It's been around at least since version 6.01 in 2008, but for some reason it was only added to the manual as a consequence of this question.
org-table-blank-field as already said, but also if you move to the cell with TAB, then typing will clear the cell content and replace it with what you type.
Required, but never shown
