Perhaps cold butter is a carcinogen.

This is so much better:

margarine, manufactured substitute for butter. It consists of a blend of vegetable oils or meat fats (or a combination of both) mixed with milk and salt. It was developed in the late 1860s by the French chemist Hippolyte Mège-Mouries in a contest sponsored by Napoleon III for a butter substitute. Beef fat, known as oleo oil, was chiefly used at first, but later was supplemented by pork and other animal fats and by vegetable oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, and cottonseed oil. At present, most margarines contain only vegetable oils; the margarine produced in the United States is usually made from corn, cottonseed, or soybean oil. The oils, refined, deodorized, and hydrogenated to the desired consistency, are churned or homogenized, usually with cultured skim milk, then chilled and reworked to incorporate salt and remove excess water. Margarine is similar in composition to butter, yields practically the same number of calories, and is easily digestible. It is commonly fortified with vitamin A and vitamin D. In the 1960s a new type of margarine was developed made of polyunsaturated fats (see cholesterol
). Margarine is sometimes called oleomargarine.

Just heat your usual butter knife up in the microwave like the rest of us.

Idiots.

I have gotten to the age where gift giving in my family is more token in nature since we are all adults that have most of what we want at any given time. I usually like oddities like these for gifts.

Anyone found a retailer selling this? If the price is right I'm in for one or two.

Or set the butter out, or run the knife under hot water.

Everyone knows the most efficient way to do it is melt the entire stick spoon out a tablespoonfull and then reconstitute the requisite proportions back into stick form. DUH.

I'll hold out for this one, thanks very much.

Waiting for the next invention that keeps the butter from sliding off the hot knife before it can get the bread.

I tend to hack off a hunk of butter and nuke it for 5 seconds.

But what I'd actually prefer is an unobtrusive peltier butter tray that lets me leave the butter out on the counter and have it stay around 50 - 60 degrees.

(Salted butter doesn't need refrigeration, but the room temps where I am will melt it entirely.)

I use and love this thing. The Butter Bell. The water keeps it fresh. Its always ready to spread.

I will cook with cold butter but won't eat cold butter. These were good enough for my grandparents; certainly good enough now and better than the divergent and unnecessary heated blade.

They come in more many appearances than pictured. I have a plain white one with the self explanatory "buerre" on it.

For the entire time I was growing up, we had one of these Tupperware butter dishes. It wasn't until I was an adult and wanted one for myself that I found out that we were using it upside down. I thought the white part was the lid and the yellow part was where the butter went. Made sense to me since it kept the melted butter contained.

/also found out they don't make them anymore
//chick where I used to work had one someplace and brought it in and gave it to me when I told her the story years ago
///think she wanted to butter me but she looked like she ate butter as a meal as you could literally NOT see her chair when she was seated
////thank you fat, butter eating chick, where ever you are
