When you're a kid, corn on the cob is one of the best meals imaginable, because it's really just an excuse to eat pure melted butter. But wrangling a chunk of that golden goodness onto a hot piece of corn fresh off the grill is a tricky task that's made a lot easier with this butter spreader that also happens to make your cob look like The Beatle's famed yellow submarine.
The spreader is designed to look like the sail of a submarine — aka the raised section on top — but instead of sailors, you fill it with a small square of butter and then rub it back and forth across the top of your corn. There's also an extra compartment on top for salt, and at just $US13 it guarantees that kids won't end up with as much melted button on their hands as they have slathered onto their corn.
