You know what sucks? Trying to spread cold butter on bread. Usually you end up with clumps of butter randomly spread out over the bread. No bueno. The ButterUp Knife by DM Initiative wants to save you from eating butter clumps. The Australian-based designers discovered having a grater spreads cold butter much better. So, they went ahead and added a serrated edge to the ButterUp Knife. The edge aerates the butter making it easier to spread. Check out their Kickstarter and order one now.

By the time you get craft beer home, it’s a wrap. You either drink it or store it and enjoy flat beer days later. SYNEK lets you save that craft beer on tap for drinking later. Fill up the bags with whatever craft beer you choose and their design keeps the carbonation fresh. You can also switch bags out without losing the carbonation. The device can sit on your counter and doesn’t take much more space than a toaster. SYNEK has a Kickstarter campaign up right now, so let your voice be heard. By bankrolling their campaign.

Dry aging beef allows naturally occurring enzymes to tenderize the meat and bring out its natural flavor. You have to go to steak shops or high-end butcher shops to get it though and it costs a fortune. What’s a guy to do? Well, hit up Steaklocker. Their Kickstarter campaign will bring the first home fridge to dry age steaks at quite a bit below current costs. The patent-pending controls let you select the flavor and tenderness and you can access all these through a smartphone app. It costs a little over $550, so it’s not cheap. What’s money when it comes to beef though, really.

Too bad 7-11 doesn’t make beer slurpees, their stock prices would skyrocket. Now, Japanese beer maker Kirin brings all the slushie goodness home with their Frozen Beer Slushie Maker ($65). This machine spits out a soft-serve yogurt-esque head of foam onto beers that acts as a frozen cap to cool the beer down. It’s tasty, fun and keeps beers cold. Score one for Kirin.
