The weirdness of this invention aside, I have long sought out an easy, convenient method of evenly distributing butter over my toast without accidentally ripping it or making part of it too “top heavy” with butter.


“Easy Butter” is a simple contraption that allows you to grate your butter into strings, presumably to make it easier to spread. Sure, you could just soften it, but that’s nowhere near as much fun as watching it come out in little stringy tendrils from a plastic tube.

The item is from Japan’s Metex Corportation, which I’m convinced exists simply to make our lives easier.
