Ah, I can’t resist a good alliteration. So, calorie counting and Paula Deen’s efforts to tie butter directly to type II diabetes aside, butter… is still pretty great. It’s one of those things that, unlike bacon, actually has sustainability in society because it’s so versatile. Sure, it should be used with some sense of moderation, but there’s still nothing that does the job of butter quite like the stuff itself. And in order to make butter easier for whatever task you’re trying to accomplish, a handful of enterprising inventors out there have come up with some pretty amazing and hilarious gadgets exclusively for the purpose of using butter… better. Take a look.
That up there is a heated butter knife. Seriously, why is it 2012 and we’re just inventing this? I could see it being a Liz Lemon-esque staple for rapid consumption of cheese, too. Homebodies, rejoice! And then we have this little dream:
I love this description. According to the seller,
This butter mill gadget squeezes butter into a long, thin, lovely ribbon. A stick of butter can be spread into a 10-foot ribbon.
You don’t say. I mean, the gizmo itself isn’t much to look at, but I have to admit a ribbon of butter is awfully elegant. Have a look at some more spectacular ways to cut, dispense and consume butter in the gallery.
Are you a butter fan? Would you use any of these items?
