Be a Better Butterer with these Butter-Focused Gadgets

With origins dating back about 10,000 years, butter has been highly cherished throughout the generations. In fact, the ancient Irish, Scots, and Norsemen loved it so much they would choose to be buried with barrels of it. Butter is delicious and anybody who says differently is just plain wrong. It’s more than a simple spread for your morning toast or that special ingredient in your grandma’s famous cookies — it’s a way of life, a cultural staple.

While you may not be willing to include a barrel of butter in your burial plot, there are other ways to show your commitment to that yellow deliciousness. We’ve come a long way since the olden days and technology has come even further, so if you’re ready to finally live up to your potential as the best butterer around, these gadgets can get you there.

The Cob Butterer – $6

Corn on the cob wouldn’t be complete without a thin layer of butter brushed against every kernel. You can achieve this by grasping the butter with your bare hand and unevenly scrape it on that cob with a knife, or — if you’re a seasoned pro — you can whip out your Cob Butterer. The choice is yours.
