Japan 2013.  A piece of toast lies with bated breath, awaiting the arrival of a buttery square.  Said butter, though small in stature, leaves the sliced bread torn, bruised.

We can’t have this!  We won’t have this.

Introducing the Easy Butter Former.  Now, you can shred your butter on a piece of toast as you would cheese on pasta.  Why leave it out to reach room temperature, when for 2,415 yen (approx  $23.66USD), you can be the proud owner of  a butter grater?  Why, I ask you.  WHY?

If you think this is the best thing since sliced bread, the product is scheduled to be available in early July.
