This Knife Is The Only Cold Butter Hack You’ll Ever Need

butter knife hack

Chances are good that, at some point in your life, you have gotten unnecessarily frustrated when spreading cold butter onto a warm piece of toast. You expect the butter to melt almost instantly, allowing you to spread it with ease. What usually ends up happening, though, is that you don’t wait long enough for the butter to melt, and you end up destroying your piece of toast in a pile of crumbs. It’s not an ideal situation. Luckily, someone out there has an answer to your problem: you can buy a knife that is the only butter hack you’ll ever need. It’s appropriately called “Butter Knife Magic,” and it promises to slice your butter perfectly each and every time so that you never have to ruin your food again.

This definitely isn’t your average butter knife.


The Butter Knife Magic, while it’s shaped like a butter knife, also has a whole bunch of holes alongside it. The small round holes are for grating your butter, the long slice on the top is for a wider curl of butter, and the triangular hole at the tip of the knife is for an in-between cut. It looks strange and at first glance, kinda like a knife from the future, it will make you wonder exactly how it could possibly work.


But according to reviews on Amazon, it does work! The Butter Knife Magic promises to “never tear your toast again.” Apparently, the holes make it easier to slice through cold butter quickly, allowing it to spread easier and soften faster. That makes sense, as smaller pieces of butter would definitely melt faster than a big chunk of butter (which is usually what you end up cutting when the stick is very cold and hard).

Now, of course, this knife isn’t 100% necessary. You could simply let your butter sit out on the counter for a few minutes before making your toast, or you could cut a piece and allow it to sit on the warm bread for a few minutes before spreading it, and your problems would probably be solved for free. But as the Butter Knife Magic info says, “We live in a rushed society. Do you really want to wait for your ice-cold butter to get soft?” Honestly, no, I don’t.

The other cool thing about this butter knife is that it allows you to make your food look aesthetically pleasing, which, as we all know, is very important in today’s world. The Butter Knife Magic promises that, with practice, “you can make fun, spaghetti-shaped strings for your toast” or “delicate curls just like the best chefs and exclusive dinner party hosts or the superstars on those chef elimination shows you watch when you think no one is looking.” I didn’t know I wanted to do these things with butter, but now I really want to.


As far as real-person reviews, they’re pretty promising.

One reviewer said, “This is an amazing addition to my repertoire in my kitchen! It does what it says it does. It does take a little getting used to but when you get the angle right butter seems to fly right off it. I’m glad I purchased this item!” Another person said, “I use this daily and don’t know how I ever lived without it.”

There were some negative comments as well, of course. One reviewer said, “It works to a point, but the butter gums up on the back side of the knife and makes a mess, wasting some of the butter.” That doesn’t sound great. Another reviewer said, “Honestly I thought it would be great, but if your butter is in the fridge, you will not get nice spaghetti looking lines like in the picture.”

So is it worth trying? Personally, I think so. For $11.99 on Amazon, it isn’t pricey, so it’s not an investment. Plus, if you don’t like it, you can return it. The Amazon pages says there is a “100% guaranteed lifetime warranty” and that “if you are not satisfied for any reason, we will gladly replace or refund your purchase.”

At the end of the day, this could be the butter hack that changes everything for your toast — you have to admit that you’re tempted to order it!
