Ingenious Knife Grates and Softens Butter Making It Perfect for Spreading

If you keep butter tucked away in the fridge and are dismayed when it's hard to spread afterwards, then we have the perfect knife for you. The Stupendous Splendiferous ButterUp is an innovative utensil that quickly turns cold, hard butter into thin, easy-to-spread ribbons. This means that there won't be any more of it ripping apart your morning toast!

The Sydney-based firm Design Momentum developed the product, which uses a built-in grater to aerate and soften the butter, thus making it easier to use. A wide, stainless steel blade helps accumulate the grated butter and gives it more surface area for spreading. It's dishwasher safe and you can choose from a classic polished finish or a modern satin one.

ButterUp is available for preorder via Design Momentum's Kickstarter. They've already achieved full funding for the campaign with over a week left, so it's not too late to get one of your very own.
