#3. EasiSpread – Instant Heated Butter Knife
“Instant Heated Butter Knife, which softens butter for the perfect spread.”
Once you’ve baked your fresh loaf, you need to butter that sucker up correct? This hot knife cuts through butter like, well, a hot knife through butter – one designed to prevent your lunch ending up like this. EasiSpread have actually created a solution to a genuine problem, albeit a frivolous one.
But given the fact that people switched to margarine for the ‘spreadability’ and ‘health benefits’, those health benefits turned out to be mostly
incorrect lies. Having caused an existential crisis in a friend by asking if given the choice he’d give up cream or butter, this would mean the end of microwaving butter into an unrecognisable sludge in pursuit of that authentic taste without the hassle.
