I was really bummed because a few sticks into it the cutter started straining a little, no big deal. A few more sticks and butter kept building up in the little nook and making the slices stick. Still okay. a couple months in the thing became almost unusable and I was so upset and I considered throwing it out. But then I thought "OMG WASH THE DAMN THING"
So I stuck it in the dishwasher and VOILA. PERFECT AGAIN. HOORAY FOR EVERYONE, BUT ESPECIALLY ME!
The only negative (for which I'm not marking down to 4* because it could well be my stupidity in action) is that, after not reading and then losing the instructions, there was no easy way to remove the white pusher from the column to start a new stick. On more than one occasion, I had to resort to forcing it up from the bottom, which surely hastened the demise of the little disc. This time around, I'll be sure to actually read the directions.
An earlier reviewer is correct--butter doesn't just drop out of the bottom most of the time, it tends to shoot out about 4" away, even when squeezing slowly. If you're aiming for a piece of toast from a height of, say, 6", you'll probably miss. So the smaller the target, the closer you want to be above it when you cut.
One other operational note: you want to cut the butter while it's cold and make sure the blade and white prong at the bottom are clean. Once there's residue from warm butter on these parts--you won't get a good cut and ejection until they're completely clean. If you get residue on these parts, positioning them under a stream of hot water for a few seconds does the job perfectly. Running hot water down the entire column to remove residue every few sticks also helps keep it running smoothly.
-the butter must be rock solid cold. It does say chilled butter in the description but the butter really has to be super solid. If the butter is not super solid it will get stuck on the blade and not fall out and just clog the item. even if you take it out of the fridge (it obviously must be kept in the fridge) for 5-10 before you're going to use it it is guaranteed to be too soft.
-The way you must slice it (I have now figured out) is that you squeeze it slowly at first until you feel resistance (meaning the blade has hit the butter) and then you immediately squeeze it fast and HOLD. The butter should drop out BEFORE you release it to get ready for the next slice, if it doesn't give it a little shake. If you never feel resistance it means the butter is too soft and it will clog and not drop out. Also, if the butter is too soft you will not get accurate slices. When the butter is rock solid you will get more accurate slices (4 clicks is 1 tablespoon) but it is still not 100% accurate. Having said that I don't recommend using this for recipes where you need to measure out exactly. It should only really be used for toast, mashed potatoes, bagels, cereal, mac n cheese etc.
-It is very difficult to get the clicking motion described above correct and even if you do it only works as it should about 3/4s of the time. When you get to the bottom of a stick (which you can't tell) it is not accurate and just drops whats leftover out.
-If you turn it upside down to see why the butter has not fallen out you automatically mess up the portions/cutting of the butter and you must turn it over and shake it to get the weight to push the butter back down.
-This item is very very large. You don't get that from the picture but it takes up about the space of 3 normal cubes of butter in the fridge or more.
-The piece that goes on the bottom that is optional is very poorly made as it is not plastic like the rest of it and is frustrating to get into place. While the directions say the piece isn't necessary I dislike having the butter exposed and I think this piece should have been made better.
-After you use this you this you must wipe the blade off with a damp paper towel. If you don't butter will get stuck on the blade and it will NOT slice.
-In trying to get the item to work properly in clicking it many times I feel as though I waste a lot of butter which is not good as that is a waste of both money and food.
I use butter all the time and was expected to love this as there was no more constantly cleaning knives or handling oily butter but unfortunately, for reasons listed above, it is SUPER annoying and faulty.
