Threads sheared off after 1 month
by Amazon Customer (1 out of 5 stars)
May 10, 2018

I had really high hopes for this product. In the short time that I had it, I loved it. I purchased this in April of 2018. Took it out the fridge today and as I was turning the handle I heard the item pop and noticed little red plastic pieces on the counter. The threads on the cap had essentially sheared off. The product is no longer usable I am out $20.00. One point I want to make is that I made sure when I put the butter in that it was not cross threaded when I screwed it in place. Seems like the plastic is too soft to handle the pressure generated from cold butter.

Not as good as the old Butter Butler, but better than nothing!
by E. Eskam (4 out of 5 stars)

Not quite as good as the old Butter Butler. The slot on the Butter Butler was more towards the middle, and had some contouring on the inside that guided the butter out the slot making it easier to extract a ribbon of butter. The end was removable to help in cleaning. It also had a much better and beefier screw mechanism, but alas the removable end where the Butter Butler came out was it's undoing - my end fell into the garbage disposal and met an untimely demise :( Then it was a rude discovery to see the Butter Butler wasn't made any more. I suppose I could 3D print a new one now, I may have to look into it since I did keep the body.
3D printing aside, I was thrilled when I found this on Amazon last year. It's not quite as heavy or well made as the old Butter Butler, but at least it does work pretty well.

As others pointed out, it will not work with frozen butter. It does work out of the fridge just fine and I keep my fridge pretty cool. For best results store it as high in your fridge as possible, and if you can take It out 15-30 minutes before you want butter that will make it that much easier to extrude a nice ribbon. Slow and steady pressure is the key - don't rush it. If you are jumping grooves when tightening you are going too fast or the butter is too hard.

it works great in the top rack of the dishwasher for cleaning. I think if the slot was more towards the middle and if the screw threads were a little bigger/deeper it would be as good as the original Butter Butler.

Good Butter Dispenser
by Bud Mills (5 out of 5 stars)
February 27, 2018

This dispenser is really cool. I wasn't sure if this was going to work or not but went with some of the reviews and tried it. I did what was suggested by taking it out of the fridge a few minutes before I'm ready to use it and it really puts out a super thin wavy stream of butter. I just use a knife and slice it off of the outlet when ready to get off. Just remember to turn the handle counterclockwise a quarter turn to release the pressure inside to the butter doesn't keep coming out. Just don't get in too much of a hurry with it. Works great.

This is really well made but not quite as useful as I had hoped
by DA (4 out of 5 stars)

This is really well made but not quite as useful as I had hoped. Butter comes out in a squiggly ribbon most of the time which means you end up having to wipe the butter off the bottom onto whatever you are buttering. That said I still use it and like it and would buy it again.

Excellent butter keeper
by Wndwalker (5 out of 5 stars)

Excellent butter keeper !!!! It keeps in the fridge and when you need it, run it under hot water for a minute, let it sit on the counter for 5 minutes and then use it. When you are done, put the cap back on it and put it back in the fridge.

Our most favorite kitchen gadget
by S. A. A. (5 out of 5 stars)
May 8, 2009

This is my husband and mine's most favorite kitchen gadget. I bought our first one years ago at a drug store that was selling them for about $5.00 each. The concept looked interesting and, at the price, I thought it was worth a try. That unit was the Chinese-made one, which is white and opaque all over. It was called the "Butter Butler". It worked great!

The way this product works is that you slide a stick of butter into the housing and enclose it with the screw-on, screw-in handle. Once you start screwing in the handle, it compresses the butter in the housing and forces a ribbon of it out through a very narrow slit in the bottom. It is very easy to load and use and has several major advantages over using butter from the package or a tray:
1. You get a perfectly uniform thin ribbon of butter (about 1.5 inches wide) every time.
2. Your butter stays perfectly fresh inside this gadget as there is virtually no exposure to air until it is squeezed out.
3. It's a great conversation piece.
4. Very easy to store and clean (dishwasher friendly).

This clear unit with the red trim is US-made and, I have to say, in this instance the Chinese product is the better one. We bought the second unit because it looks and works 'exactly' like the first one, but has the attractive red trim. This way, we could have one for salted butter and one for unsalted and be able to easily tell them apart. But, although they do look very much alike in structure, the mechanism on the US product is nowhere near as smooth as on the original Butter Butler. It also tends to jump from its threads when one is trying to push some harder butter through, so you have to rethread the top before you can continue. The Chinese made item does not do that. It has deeper threads and stays put.

In any event, I do highly and enthusiastically recommend this product. One of ours broke recently and we replaced it immediately.

Hint: Always push all the butter out of the unit completely before retracting the pusher. And, when you do retract it, do it slowly and gently. Ours broke because we did not empty all the butter out every time and we yanked the handle back out too quickly. This caused the vacuum to stress the push plate against the screw that attaches it to the handle. The screw ended up breaking through the push plate. But even this happened only after several years of use (and abuse). It is a very sturdy product overall.

A Toasted Bagel's Best Friend
by Perry Tannenbaum (4 out of 5 stars)
January 22, 2016

Bought this for my mom after I broke her old one - and after I'd bought one for myself a few years ago. You get a nice ribbon of margarine when you drop a stick in. Straight out of the freezer, that ribbon crinkles, and butter doesn't always emerge as smoothly, even when thawed. Biggest improvement since my mom bought the original white "patent pending" model is the cap for the bottom. That cap is still a work in progress. On mine, the cap can slip off if you store the dispenser upright as pictured. Once the new bar of margarine gets broken in, residue forms on the bottom and the cap sticks better. I could hear a soft click on the newest one attaching the cap, so it seems like Max Space is beginning to address the minor problem. Keep at it, guys! It still slips off once in a while.

Love the Made in USA version
by ATF (5 out of 5 stars)
April 5, 2017

This is our must have kitchen accessory. We like the Made in USA much better than the Made in China version. The Chinese version red color bleeds into the butter. This is a very nice quality product. We are so used to using it that it would be very strange to serve butter any other way.

Where has this been all my life!
by Emily (5 out of 5 stars)

Do you need this, probably not. Will it make you life easer, YES! It makes spreading butter on things soooooo much easier. I will say it can be easy to add too much butter because it is so easy to get it out with this tool, but if you are careful it can also be great for getting just the right amount that you need for any dish.

Now I am writing a positive review because of the excellent customer care I have received
by Carol Renwick (5 out of 5 stars)

I had written a negative review of this butter mill because the red screw on ring broke.

Now I am writing a positive review because of the excellent customer care I have received. Vijay at Max Space wrote to me right away and said they would send me a new ring at no charge. He explained how to remove the broken one. We now look forward to happily using the butter mill again, heeding the advice to let the mill warm a bit before using it.
