Grilled cheese sandwiches and buttered toast are two of my favorites. But buttering the bread when the butter has been taken straight from the refrigerator can be challenging because cold butter doesn’t spread very easily. Taking the butter out ahead of time to soften is the easiest way to solve the problem, but for those times when you don’t want to wait and don’t want to use margarine (yuck!), the Cooks Innovations Butter Mill might just be the best solution yet. Let’s see how it works and give it a try.
The Cooks Innovations Butter Mill is a specially designed stick butter holder that mills the butter providing thin ribbons that will spread easier than thick slices of cold butter on soft bread and toast.
The Butter Mill is made of three main parts. The base with the butter holder, the blade and the lid. All the parts are plastic except for the blade
The removable blade looks very similar to a food grater or microplane. Tiny blades next to holes scrape the top of the butter to extrude thin ribbons of butter.
