Heated Butter Knife
So toasting bread is hardly a difficult skill to master, but spreading cold butter on toast is another matter altogether.
Here to put an end to those toast ripping cold butter days is the Heated Butter Knife by That!. The serrated knife makes easy work of spreading by carrying warmth from the palm of your hand to the edge of the blade. Simply use the knife edge to shave off fine curls of butter straight onto your toast. Then gently draw the blade over for a smoother, more even layer of butter. How genius!
