Butter Bullet is a device that will warm your butter and allow you to spray as much as you want on virtually any type of food without making a mess. It'll hold butter, margarine or low-fat cooking oils, and the battery-powered warmer inside will melt each substance to an ideal spraying temperature. If you're trying to eat healthy, this device will help you out with that, as controlling how much butter you spray will enable you to control your calories.
The cost of Butter Bullet is $29.99 plus $8.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Butter Bullet at the discounted price of only $8.99 for a total price of $47.97. Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: butterbullet.com
To begin using your Butter Bullet, place a cold, hard stick of butter inside the device, vertically. If your butter does not come in sticks, or you're using margarine or some other alternative substances, you'll have to spoon it in.
Once your butter's inside your device, power the device up and wait a few minutes as it heats your butter to a temperature suitable for spraying.
Next, you'll need to use the big gray button on the side of your device to actually send a spray of butter onto the desired food at hand. If one spray hasn't given you as much butter as you want or need, simply press the button again.
Once you're done using your device for the time being, place it on your counter or put it in your fridge for storage. If you tend to like your butter colder, the fridge is probably the best option for you.
The Butter Bullet runs on a set of rechargeable batteries, so you won't have to worry about looking for an electrical outlet to plug yours into. This makes it a great thing to bring along on a camping trip, provided that you also bring your charger with you.
This device consistently delivers an even spray, so you'll probably never end up with a blob of butter on one side of your bread or baked potato and none on the other.
If you prefer margarine over butter, you can use that in this device, too, and it'll also hold cooking oil, including the low-fat variety. By using the Butter Bullet for the latter, you'll ensure that your cooking pans are greased up evenly all over.
When your device is empty, you'll be able to rinse it clean in minutes or even seconds for the next use.
With the Butter Bullet, you control how much butter, margarine or cooking oil comes out, whether that's many sprays or just one or two. If you're having a communal meal, the device can be passed from person to person and each individual can spray as much or as little butter as desired on their food.
Unlike a big tub of butter, this device won't take up a great deal of space on your table and / or counter when it's out and ready to be used. When it's empty, you may choose to stash it away in a cupboard out of sight, and it'll take up a few inches of space at most there, too.
One downside of this device being black on the outside is that it'll be hard for you to tell how much butter, margarine or oil is left inside. It'll also be hard for you to see when the substance inside might be going bad.
While you can spoon butter from a tub or another container into this device, it has been designed to ideally be used with sticks of butter. If you don't use sticks, it may be difficult for you to tell how much butter or margarine to add to the device's inner container at once.
Many people choose to spread cold, hard butter on their food with a knife, but with a fairly flimsy food such as bread, the knife could actually rip the food. Plus, knives can be dangerous for kids to use and will not dispense cooking oil like the Butter Bullet will.
Other people choose to melt butter in the microwave to put on certain dishes, but it can splatter everywhere, and if you heat it for too long, it can get too hot to eat. Fortunately, Butter Bullet can melt your butter without making it excessively hot.
Shake-on butter is a common alternative to butter by the tub or stick, but sometimes this so-called butter contains very few ingredients that actual butter does. Some people don't think it tastes the same or has the same texture as real butter, either. With Butter Bullet, you'll be able to spray on butter just as fast as you'd shake it on, but you'll get the taste you're looking for.
If you don't use butter very often, you don't need to fill your Butter Bullet completely. By doing so and leaving the device on your counter for days or weeks at a time between uses, you'll run the risk of the butter inside going bad. The same goes for margarine or other alternative substances.
Regardless of what brand of butter, margarine or low-fat cooking oil you're using within this device, do not put more than the equivalent of a stick of butter inside. If you try to add more of any of these substances, the warmer within the device may not do its job effectively, and the spray you get may be too thick and / or powerful.
When you're spraying butter or an alternative substance with this device, or putting the device away for storage, make sure the bottom opening is closed securely. If not, butter or whatever substance you've got in the sprayer might dribble out when you don't want it to, making a mess of your table, counter or refrigerator.
You might be tempted to use your Butter Bullet for sauces and condiments other than margarine, butter, or low-fat cooking oil, but it's only appropriate for use with those three substances. If you put something thicker in it, like ketchup or tomato sauce, it may clog your device and make it harder to rinse clean than usual. You wouldn't want to go to use it for butter and find that there's a slight ketchup taste left behind!
Every Butter Bullet contains a battery-operated warmer within it that'll heat your butter, margarine or cooking oil to an ideal temperature—not at all cold, but not hot enough to burn your tongue. It'll also dispense just the right amount of each substance, so your food won't be drowning in liquid but will be seasoned enough to taste good. You'll have some control over the amount of butter, margarine or oil you use, since you'll be able to decide how many sprays you release onto your meal by pressing your device's gray button. Once you're done using your Butter Bullet for the time being, you can leave it powered on while it's on your counter or in your fridge. That'll allow the battery within to charge itself for the next use.
If you've tried to use cold butter and a knife to butter your toast, you've likely found that more often than not, the hard butter and knife are able to shred the bread. Fortunately, you'll now be able to use your Butter Bullet to deliver a gentle mist of butter to your toast, so it stays intact. It'll also be a bit warm, instead of being as cold as it would be if it came straight out of a refrigerated container. To avoid shredding other lightweight bread items like pancakes and English muffins, too, just use the same technique.
Many people like to use butter for seasoning while grilling or baking food items like meat, fish, and vegetables, but it can be hard to evenly apply it to an uncooked portion of food. Your Butter Bullet sprayer will help you do so, though, so when your food comes off the grill or out of the oven, it'll have a subtle salty taste that you'll likely find pleasing. For even more of a buttery taste, you can spray on a bit more butter once the food is on your plate.
Instead of spraying on a chemical cooking spray, or adding a blob of butter or oil with a spoon, use your Butter Bullet to make any pan or dish a non-stick one. That way, your food won't stick to your pan or dish, and you'll be able to control how much you spray, so you won't over-portion your lubricant and add tons of calories to your meal. Keep in mind that the Butter Bullet only works well with low-fat oils, and not the thicker, greasier ones that contain more fat.
When you start using a Butter Bullet on a regular basis, you'll no longer need to spend time heating butter to melt it, and then waiting for it to cool enough to be used. Instead of taking minutes to melt your butter, one of these devices will melt it down to an ideal temperature in just seconds. No cooling period will be necessary.
