Sliced butter: Best thing since sliced bread

The One Click Butter Cutter slices out pats of butter one fifth of a tablespoon at a time.

An elegant solution to an age old probelm.

I am not very good with a butter dish. Either that, or I'm not very good with a knife. One way or the other, butter ends up on the floor. Sometimes it's just the pat of butter I'm trying to free from the rest of the stick, sometimes it's the butter dish, and sometimes it's everything: butter, knife, and toast. Since I have never been one to play by the 5-second rule, it gets thrown out and I try again. There's a reason they call it butterfingers.

So anyway, after I remember that I need to have coffee before attempting anything in the morning, I try again and eventually get to enjoy a delicious slice of toast with butter. As I noted earlier today, everybody loves toast. With the One Click Butter Cutter, I too can be one of those people enjoying toast so easily.

Take a butter dish and stand it on end, add a slicing mechanism, and you've got yourself a bona fide butter cutter. It divvies out the goods one fifth of a tablespoon at a time, so you always know what you're gonna get. Not only does this get you easy-to-slice butter, but you get easy-to-slice consistent butter. via Craziest Gadgets
