Buttermate Ruins Butter with Math Class

Illustration for article titled Buttermate Ruins Butter with Math Class

When I cook, I generally just estimate my butter measurements. One tablespoon equals half a stick, two tablespoons becomes a whole stick. What can I say, I like to keep things simple.


The KitchenArt Buttermate adds overrated precision measurements to the butter+me-life=happy equation. Using an admittedly interesting slider system, you can select teaspoons, tablespoons or even pats, slicing the required allotment with an integrated stainless steel blade.

If you feel the need to better apportion your butter, the Buttermate is available for $6.50. [Amazon and The Home Marketplace via bookofjoe]

Does this only work with East Coast Butter? If I can fit a stick of "Western stubby" in it then no thanks!!
