“The stupendous splendiferous ButterUp”


Here’s a fun idea: A butter knife that makes it easier to spread fridge-cold butter.

The idea was put up on Kickstarter last month to get funding. Their goal was $38,000 Australian dollars from people who wanted to pre-order a knife. Now that the fundraising is about to end, they’ve received almost ten times more. Popular butter knives!

The question is what you do with such a butter knife if you don’t eat bread?

Butter is Back!

    Butter can be curled of the butterblock and put into a frying pan to fry some eggs, a tomato and some pieces of sausage. Cureld butter melts quicker than a solid piece of the same food item.

    Butter from grassfed cows is soft enough even right out of the fridge. I don't eat bread but it tastes great on a nice slice of bread made of walnuts and almonds ;). Don't need a butterup knife at all.

    Kerrygold Irish butter in UK is grass fed and is nice and soft. I would recommend.

    Very clever design.

    The spread-ability of butter depends on the percentage water in the butter, the percentage of unsaturated fat in the butter and the average length of the saturated fatty acids. The butter I get from a local dairywoman is about 92-4% fat from grass-fed cows. It spreads fine out of the fridge. However, I don't have much occasion to spread butter. This tool might be good for recipes that call for soft butter in a mixture to be baked. Generally I just slice the butter into thin strips and they soften quickly, but this is an alternative.

    Take the butter using the butter knife. Mix it well with some cocoa. Put in some blueberries and almonds and theres ur LCHF dessert :)

    If your 92% or 85% dark chocolate (you know, for that special treat after a good work out or whatever ) is a little too bitter on the palate, try it with the same thickness of butter on. It is sooo creamy and delish. Works well with mascarpone too.

    I like that knife, great invention. Good know know about butter from grass fed cows, didnt know that. I will have to see if I can find that type of butter here. Normally I shop at Aldi and I don't think they carry that, need to do some research......MN- USA
