Cue the infomercial GIFs. Try as you might to spread butter on your toast, the knife inexplicably pierces the bread, sending it flying aross the house where it knocks your laundry soap into the dryer, exposes your breasts and makes your taco fall apart (which makes you more frustrated than you've ever been, ever). But not anymore!

Metex Japan's household and kitchen section sells this totally necessary item, the Easy Butter Former. Don't bother trying to spread butter in stick form: grate it like cheese directly onto that which needs buttering and let room temperature, gravity and dairy fairies do the rest. But wait, there's a best part — the English-translated product description. Here's a sample:
