When it comes to kitchen tools, we can all get pretty basic. Between the pots and pans and blenders, we sometimes miss out on the weird items that are actually quite helpful. So that is what this article is about.
Forget about the tools that everyone has and take a look at the kitchen items that have been labeled as weird. From a toasted cheese toaster and a knife that spreads butter like no other to a boiled egg maker that doesn’t require a pot of boiling water and sushi bazooka, if it’s weird yet effective it’s on this list.

Put your fresh stick of butter into the butter cutter and with one click of the kitchen tool you’ll have squares of butter without ever needing a butter knife. It can also be stored in the refrigerator and it’s dishwasher safe. One thing to note, customers advice that you use this only for butter you keep in the fridge. Once the butter gets soft, it doesn’t work as effectively.
