Buttering Bread Fast and Easy

If you are having a large get together and you need to make a large amount of bread that needs to be buttered you may not want to spend the whole afternoon buttering each piece.

Instead you can microwave the butter for about 20 seconds, stir it and if necessary microwave again at 10 second incraments until melted.

Now all you have to do is pick up a pastry brush and paint the bread! This idea also works great for folks who are totally blind, it's sure easier than dealing with a hard stick of butter. You may want to try this with corn too!

One Click Butter Cutter

Blind and visually impaired people love technology. We also love to occasionally put butter on things. It's always the simple yet elegant kitchen technology that impresses me the most. Like the One Click Butter Cutter. It's technology that is so simple that I can get the drift just by looking at the name, and what a useful product for those of us who have a little difficulty getting the butter to go where it should. The butter cutter holds a stick of butter or margarine and all you have to do to get exactly one "pat" of butter is click the cutter as if you are about to staple a plastic bag. Out comes a neatly sliced portion of butter that you could readily spread on your toast. 5 such "pats" of butter are equivalent to 1 tablespoon - so you could also portion the amount of butter with ease. Another plus, no more messy butter dish.

Portion control is an important part of staying healthy. 5 pats equal 1 tablespoon. It slices, serves, and stores one stick of butter or margarine. ABS plastic. Dishwasher safe. 2"W x 3"D x 8"H.
