No more tears on toast!

Say goodbye to hard clumps of butter ripping apart your morning toast with ButterUp. The Stupendous Splendiferous ButterUp quickly turns cold, hard butter into sumptuous easy to spread ribbons of dairy goodness.

Built in grater

Our unique design features a built in grater to aerate and soften butter making it easy to spread. Easy to spread also means you use less too. The grater shape has been specifically designed for butter and to avoid sharp edges so cleanup is safe and easy.

Broad spreading blade

 A wider blade helps to collect the grated butter as well as provide more surface area for easy spreading.

Dishwasher safe

ButterUp! is made from stainless steel that is dishwasher safe and long lasting. Choose from a classic polished finish or a modern satin finish.

Development and prototypes

We have developed ButterUp! over many months and prototypes to refine the design to make sure that its easy to use and easy to clean when you're done.

Just some of the not so stupendous prototypes we developed in the workshop to 3D printed stainless steel and aluminium machined samples to test what worked and what didn't. After lots of trial and error, buttered bread and many months of tooling refinement we are ready for ButterUp! to spread world wide.

What next?

In order to provide you with a great product we need to meet the minimum order quantity from our supplier. This is where your support and helping spread the word is the most important part of this whole project!

Thankyou so much for your support and helping spread the love!

Ordering more than 1?  

Due to huge demand for multiples you can simply add to your initial pledge! Additional knives are $10 each and you can add up to 4 (5 total). International shipping is still $6!

Risks and challenges

We are committed to delivering a well executed high quality product. Working closely with an experienced cutlery manufacturer we have already addressed production issues to refine the manufacturing process and tooling design and we are production ready. We also have people at hand to help out with logistics and delivery once the campaign is successful. Also we understand our own limitations which is why we have taken into consideration a realistic timeframe for the first production. We want to exceed expectation, not over promise.
