Thank goodness! It's about time we traded struggling to spread real butter on toast with butter strings.
This is "Easy Butter" from Japan's Metex. In short, you stick a slab of butter in the contraption, turn it, and grate strings of butter. Genius!
Below, you can see that while the weight is the same (8 grams), the stringy butter looks more voluminous as well as easier to spread.
Earlier this year, Japanese site Ketai Watch checked out the contraption. Have a look below.
Nothing quite says "breakfast" like a tub of grated butter.
