Peanut butter lovers, isn’t it really darn annoying when you make it down to the bottom of the jar and you can’t quite reach the very last bit of goodness?
Well, spread the word for the good of peanut butter fans across the world: There’s a crowdfunded gadget that could solve all your peanut butter jar woes.
Yep, that’s right—it’s called the Peanut Butter Pump. Invented by Andy Scherer, a dad of five grown children, the gadget fits on most 40-ounce peanut butter tubs.
According to a series of detailed diagrams on the crowdfunding page, here’s how the Peanut Butter Pump works. Simply screw it on in place of a lid and pump out your desired amount of peanut butter. The tool scrapes the sides and bottom of the jar, so by the time it’s empty, the insides are clean and you can recycle it without rinsing it (or worrying that you’re wasting precious spread). Plus, the nozzle has measurement markers so you know exactly how much PB you’re using. If you’re like us, that means no more accidentally eating a whole cup straight out of the jar with a spoon.
While the crowdfunding campaign is almost over, Scherer has raised more than double the amount of money he asked for, meaning we expect our futures to be cloudy with a chance of even more peanut butter.
