I grew up in a climate where butter needed to be stored in the refrigerator (or did it?). And that meant scraping and spreading butter on fresh bread or even toast was a shredded nightmare that ended in wrecked bread and tears.
It seems I’m not the only one that had this problem and three Australian designers have created what they consider the solution called “Butterup”. They have a Kickstarter site which has already reached it goal. For $18 AUD (including shipping) you can be one of the first to get in on this new cutlery wonder knife. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and the image above does describe how it works pretty well.
The “Stupendous Splendiferous Butterup” has some great press copy to describe it further: “Say goodbye to hard clumps of butter ripping apart your morning toast with ButterUp. The Stupendous Splendiferous ButterUp quickly turns cold, hard butter into sumptuous easy to spread ribbons of dairy goodness.”
