Sometimes you feel like a nutty butter

Did you know that you can make peanut butter at home? With the Peanut Butter Machine, you'll have fresh peanut butter any time you want it.

Making peanut butter is mostly a matter of grinding up peanuts--but that's a lot of work to do at home. The Peanut Butter Machine can make that hard work easy. Just fill the machine with peanuts and choose whether you want chunky or smooth. In just a few minutes, you'll have plenty of peanut butter.

Even better, if you're a fan of macadamia or cashew butter, you can have it in the same amount of time. The Peanut Butter Machine can make a spreadable butter out of any shell nut--even sunflower seeds. It doesn't last quite as long as the store-bought stuff; homemade peanut butter lasts up to two weeks in the fridge.

You can make about two cups of peanut butter at a time. At least for peanuts, the price of homemade peanut butter works out to be significantly cheaper than what you can buy at the store.

The Peanut Butter Machine is designed to fit on most counters. It's fairly compact, and it wipes clean. The machine retails for $49.98.
