There are some caveats that I noticed. As it takes only a half stick, you'll have to cut a stick in half if you can't buy them in half sticks already. Second, some sticks are a tad larger than the hole. In that case, it tends to shave on top, so it could get messy. Third, the half stick doesn't go all the way in; there's about 1/8 to 1/4" sticking out the top. Since you have to push down on the plastic plunger to force the butter out the other end, it could be problematic in the beginning. Fourth, I found I have to take this out of the fridge a little early, so the butter has a chance to melt a bit and not stick to the sides of the item. Fifth, when the stick gets near the end, it's hard to push down on the plunger with your fingers. I had to find a sturdy stick (I used the handle end of a small hammer) to push down on it.
To use, you push down on the plunger to force a bit of butter out the application end, which is shaped to fit the ear of corn. After that bit is used up, you need to press down again to push more out. Repeat as necessary. Is it faster than rolling/brushing on melted butter or just rolling it on a stick in a tray? No, but it's less wasteful. Also note that if you try to use it when there's no butter coming out the application end, the plastic could gouge the kernals. You can feel it scraping them.
Finally, note that I mentioned that sometimes butter is shaved off the sides as it's inserted into the item. That could cause a mess, and in the end, you might want to wash it. But if you're in the middle of a meal, now what? Perhaps buying a spare would work.
This is the perfect purchase though because we salt & pepper our ears of corn and I don't like mixing pepper chunks into my butter that I may be using on something else! So by having this separate in the fridge, it doesn't matter what corn pieces touch the butter because it's designated for corn.
Our "home" corn butter spreader is a pampered chef product.
This one is our "away" corn butter spreader.
The design is exactly the same, but the Pampered Chef item fits together much better.
This is acceptable, and it's 1/3 the price.
