In The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Bilbo Baggins once sadly says – ‘I feel thin, sort of stretched…like butter scraped over too much bread’.
Quite unfortunately, many of us have actually struggled by trying to scrape that blob of dastardly butter over too much bread. Well, as always, the Japanese have once again come forth to rescue us from the ‘blob’.
They have created a contraption that can be best described as a Butter Grater. The function is pretty simple – you put your slab of butter inside the grater to churn out fluffy twirls of light butter ‘strings’ that can be easily spread over your toasts and crackers.
The Butter Grater can conveniently be used for other food items like cheese and chocolate blocks. Structurally, the kitchen accessory is built from a lightweight plastic body, with a sturdy stainless steel slicer at the bottom. Moreover, its constitution and removable parts also makes it easier to clean and mitigate temperatures of up to 80 degrees centigrade.
Dimensions: 9.5 cm (diameter) x 17 cm (height).
