Butter Crayon – Product Review

I was recently approached by a group responsible for creating a new kitchen gadget known as the Butter Crayon. Their goal is to raise money to get their product out to the masses, and after review, I think it is a pretty good product.


The Butter Crayon is made from a high temperature silicon that can be used on hot surfaces, up to 450 degrees, and is FDA approved. It is simple in its design, and size, of which I liked. I’ve used a similar product in the past, of which was metal, and overall seemed like a pain to use, but not this one.

The size of the crayon is about 4 inches long and holds one half stick of butter. I actually liked the half stick butter idea as they claim it keeps fresh, longer, in the refrigerator, plus I like the idea of the half stick.

Inserting the butter was a cinch. Simply remove the internal block, insert the half stick of butter, place the block back inside the house, and remove the cap.

I gave this a test, and tried both buttering my skillet to cook eggs for my wife and kids this morning as well buttering a piece of toast.

I ran the Butter Crayon along the warmed toast, and it worked like a charm, but what I liked even more was running the crayon along my warm skillet as I could pinpoint just the right amount of butter and not overdoing it which can sometimes happen.

Is it a kitchen gadget? Absolutely. But in this day and age when I open my kitchen drawers, I have quiet a handful of gadgets, and I would recommend this one if you are looking to control your butter, eliminate some mess, keep butter fresh, and remove all of the knives you get when dealing with toasting butter.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
