I think most people are surprised at how easy it is to make butter at home - and even more surprised at how delicious it is compared to processed store-bought butters.
Usually I'll make butter in my Kitchenaid (sometimes accidentally from over whipping cream), but you end up having to make a fairly decent size batch.
This little jar makes it simple and easy to make small batches of fresh butter - with just 1 cup of cream. You just pour your cream in, let it sit at room temperature for 6-8 hours, give it a good shake for about 2-3 minutes, rinse it off, and you're good to go.
The jar has measurements to make it even easier (plus some suggestions for flavoring your fresh butter), a strainer lid with cover to drain off the excess liquid, and the bottom is a little screw-off ramekin that is perfect for serving.
All you need is a loaf of crusty bread and some sea salt for sprinkling
When I first came across this butter maker I must admit to a bit of skepticism. Then I read the review, however, because it was the ONLY review I was still hesitant ... being a ""butter snob"" because of cherished childhood memories of fresh bread -right -out -of -the- oven slathered in ""German butter""! After reading the review a second time I decided to try the butter maker so I ordered one for myself plus one for a friend (to get her opinion).
FANTASTIC! That was the reaction from my husband and friend. How did I, the self proclaimed butter snob, react? Those childhood memories came rushing back and I promptly ordered several more for family and friends.
My husband has even talked about the Butter Maker with colleagues at work - and has asked me to place another order!
I appreciate the reviewer who shared her thoughts/experience with the butter maker and want to add my 2 cents for anyone else who may be skeptical. So, the bottom line is:
Yes, I would and have already recommended the butter maker
Yeah, it's yet another thing to take up valuable drawer space.
The thing is, it makes REALLY tasty butter. I purchased some heavy cream from my local co-op, left it out for a few hours (it was pretty warm, so I didn't wait the entire recommended time) and shook it up.
The resulting butter was light and creamy, almost like it had been whipped. It was incredible on the sweet corn we roasted that night. Once we refrigerated it, the texture was a lot more like what you'd expect from butter, but it still tasted great.
Well worth it for the price of the shaker, especially when you consider that heavy cream is generally a lot cheaper than buying artisan butters
I just bought this, but I couldn't wait to try it out! I had heavy cream left over from thanksgiving that had half a vanilla bean soaking in it. I let it sit out for a few hours, added a tablespoon of local honey and I now have fresh, creamy organic , grass fed vanilla bean honey butter! Besides bringing the cream to room temperature it took less than 5 minutes! Great stocking gift for the foodie in your family
My husband got this for me for Christmas. I bake a lot of bread and LOVE butter. I was unable to make butter with this product. I spent almost 30 minutes shaking it and all I got was almost whipped cream. I called the store of purchase to see if they had any tips and they had none. The woman I spoke with said that I could use a mixer to make butter. I dumped the contents of the Buttercup into my electric mixer and within 5-10 minutes I had butter. The mixer exerted a lot more movement than the recommended 5 minutes of shaking by hand. It makes me think that some of these reviews are from Chef'n. I hope I can get a refund!
I watched the video on their facebook page and I just had to order one. I got mine last week and I had my heavy whipping cream out and at room temp. It took me all of 4 minutes total time to make the best honey butter ever!! I absolutely love it and I would recommend it to everyone! You gotta try the Buttercup!
I understand you can use the buttermilk that is poured off. The instructions state to rinse the buttercup 2-3 times with cold water. Doesn't this dilute the buttermilk too much? Is the buttermilk usable?

Best Answer:I pour the buttermilk into a clean jar after shaking. The water from rinsing gets poured down the drain.
