Grater is Greater: Butter Shredder Makes For Better Butter!

What's the greatest thing since sliced bread? How about butter that doesn't ruin your toasted sliced bread when you try to spread it? Behold, shredded butter!

Japan company Metex created this amazing gizmo called "Easy Butter Former": a grater for a butter. All you have to do is put a regular stick of butter in the contraption and twist to dispense a stringy, easy to spread butter.

I just heat the stick of butter in the microwave for 12-13 seconds and it is soft enough to slice and spread without damaging the toast. However, this is COOL! I went to the first link and it's in Japanese, but here's what Google translate gave me:

"It's beautiful to paint in uniform thickness on the surface of the toast the butter just out of the refrigerator, it is difficult. The author's unconcerned at all in other things, but it's a multi-valued as punctual, and want to paint a butter carefully evenly every nook and cranny in the toast first thing in the morning of the day of bread. At that time, the solidified butter and cold just out of the refrigerator's worst. Winter morning in the head, in the room only for a while put the heating, cut the block with a knife butter was removed from the refrigerator, even if I drop on the surface of freshly baked toast just taken out of the toaster and sleepy and cold even just, not even sign it begins to melt. After all, it's usual pattern or a little butter chop block, and pressed with a knife,'s smeared by force while taking rubbing the surface of crisp delicious clean burnt brown toast. To introduce today "Easy butter" excellent one gives a revolution in such a life, but (Easy Butter)."

That looks extrememly messy. I've found butter is best applied to toast by using it in the same manner that one would use a glue stick on paper.
