Your corn on the cob and morning toast are never going to be the same again once you get your hands on this nifty butter spreader. It’s one of the most useful gadgets for people who love butter and it’s going viral on TikTok because it’s that cool.

What is a butter spreader knife?

This stainless steel knife is one of the quirky kitchen gadgets you’ll actually want to use over and over again thanks to its easy-to-use design. While it may look like a typical butter knife, it’s actually speckled with small holes along the blunted blade that help small curls of the creamy good stuff pass through and create tiny ribbons of buttery goodness.

It’s a unique kitchen gadget that’s brilliant at spreading a pat or two on crispy toast without ripping bread to shreds. Dip it into a butter crock for the ultimate, velvety-smooth spread.

The one-inch blade offers just the right amount of butter, and there’s even one larger hole on this butter spreader to curl larger ribbons and semi-soft cheeses. When you’re done using it you can throw it in the dishwasher.

The Best Amazon User Reviews

“My brother and his wife received a knife like this as a wedding present and I had to try it for myself,” writes verified Amazon purchaser, K. Carbo. “I only buy real butter and I keep in the fridge, so this is so helpful to get the right amount of butter to spread on toast. It really is a neat little find!”

Charlotte, another verified Amazon purchaser, gives the butter spreader a perfect five-star review. “I love these knives. I ordered the two-pack so I could share it with my parents. I don’t like leaving my butter out, so I’ve always struggled with hard butter and ripping my toast. That struggle is now in the past. This knife creates thin little ribbons of butter, that spread much more easily and don’t tear the toast. It also cleans up well in the dishwasher, which is a plus!”
