Great Idea - but just misses!
12/01/2019 by H Roksan
So I just loved the idea - have been using this knife for butter for quite some time now. Unfortunately it is not balanced well and easily falls over. Don't know if it just wasn't rounded correctly on the bottom (I got a lemon in other words) of is all of them are like this. I would love to know if mine is just "bad." I keep using it, though, because as I said, I love the idea!!
Great Idea....

But doesn’t stay standing, especially if any spread remains on the spreader. A bit of a balancing act to get it to stand. Use only for non-runny spreads, like peanut butter or cream cheese.
Nice concept, but they fall down easily

They really need to be flat on the bottom, bot rounded. They fall over very easily and get stuff all over the counter.

I ordered 5 of these for all my family. Greatest invention since sliced bread. I had waited since Christmas 2018 for the Grommet to get more in stock and checked back weekly to no avail. When they did arrive, I pounced and now I am extremely pleased with my selection.
