As funny as this may sound, our family has really enjoyed these little gadgets for many years! I personally think there is much less butter-wasting when you use one of these instead of simply cutting a pad or two of butter and attempting to apply it to your corn-on-the-cob.
They’re made to fit half of a stick (4 Tablespoons) of butter… No need to soften the butter beforehand. The little pusher goes in after the butter, and there you have it! A cleaner, more efficient way to slather on one of life’s great pleasures.
