Okay, if you need a one quart butter warmer, you’d better have your cardiologist on speed dial. I like butter, don’t get me wrong, but a freakin’ quart? And I bet it’s way overpriced. I do all my butter melting in a (usually at most) one half cup metal measuring cup.
I was utterly convinced that this had to be some kind of photoshop job and it couldn’t really exist. It does. It costs $14.99. I’d like to leave earth now. There is no place for me on a planet where this exists.
OMG — it’s real! And only $13.86 at Walmart.com!
(But I also thought it had to be a Photoshop job.)
Hey…it looks a helluva lot like her water-boiler.
Heh, I melt butter in a one-cup Pyrex(tm) container in the microwave. But then, I’m no Pauler Deen.
“I melt butter in a one-cup Pyrex(tm) container in the microwave.”
Ditto. Or, if I manage to plan well ahead for what I might be making later, I just put it in the regular oven. Warm in there, melts the butter nicely. Takes a tad longer, of course.
So, does that mean you don’t have a GB (garbage bowl) and simply use the sink, or trash can? LOL…That is exactly how I melt butter too.
Finally, a pot in which I can warm my jumbo butter! Now, if only a Food Network star would sell a pot in which I could warm my petite butter ….
So what might happen if you used that pan, er, butter warmer for something other than warming butter? Say, what if I threw a hamburger patty in there, or a grilled cheese sandwich? Would Paula come over and poop on my driveway, or would the consequences be even more dire?
The consequences would be even more dire. Pauler would send her boys and husband over to your house to cook for you.
I can see it now, you put a hamburger in the pauler pot. Doorbell rings, Its Sons Jamie and Bobby, Aprons on all ready to cook some of Mommas favorites and teach you the proper way to use her butter pot.
They’re actually kinda hot. I might be willing to risk it.
W. T. F.
That’s just stupid…
Can I warm margarine in it as well? I don’t really like margarine, but I would like to know all my warming options should I ever decide to buy some.
Deaner, please read the description on the package. You can only melt butter, cheese, chocolate or use it to warm soup or sauce. Don’t be daft.
Umm, yea — so as not to be confused with one of Alton’s notorious “unitasker” devices, right?
Where is the “Like” button when you need it?
If I am willing to use straight margarine as a sauce, then can I warm margarine in it?
I think gay margarine makes a more flavorful sauce, personally.
funniest thing I’ve read all day.
Deaner! i am confused as well! what if (gasp!) if accidentally put olive oil in my butter warmer pan? would it warm? freeze? coagulate? the horror! O the humanity!!!! Oh i must rest and contemplate the possible tragedies…….
I’ll add that to my Christmas list, right after a Rachel Ray garbage bowl.
I use mine as my butter-wrapper-disposer-of-er
I saw one of those garbage bowls at Kroger. Didn’t have a price on it, but another shopper asked if I was going to buy one. We both agreed we could get a similar utensil for a much better price at the Dollar Tree and anyone willing to shell out anything more than a $1 was a moron.
Uses are kinda limited. I have a similar pot that is more versitile. Sorry Paula.
Also nice that it’s porcelain nonstick. I have such troubles with my warm butter being so very sticky, you know ….
I feel compelled (because I’m just that kind of person) to note that one quart of butter is equivalent to eight sticks, or two pounds.
“It puts the butter on it’s skin or else y’all gits the hose agin……..”
A pot used to melt butter has to be non-stick….. why?
“Jumbo butter warmer” – I bet that’s also Mista Groovah’s nickname for Paula’s vajayjay
Oh dear. I really didn’t need that visual.
HAHAHA Oh man… I almost did a coffee spit take all over my keyboard
Dude, gross! Thank you so much for that visual!!
In the name of all that is holy, Fury….
The sad part isn’t that some marketing douche thought they could make it and some retail management douche thought they could sell it.
It’s that there are run of the mill douche nozzles that will buy it, thereby perpetuating the cycle of idiocy.
What’s even sadder is that marketing douche got paid for this idea SMH
Sad but true.
Susie Fogelson, WTF?
Okay, I know this is supposed to be a goofy site, but just thought I’d interject a little reason because while some here are thinking that people are ignorant for buying this; there’s nothing that bothers me more than calling someone ignorant when you’re just as ignorant.
I think the problem with this pan is only in the naming of it. A 1qt saucepan is actually quite useful. And who is saying that you have to melt 1qt of butter in this thing? It’s a saucepan. It can melt a stick of butter just as well as 8 sticks, so no reason to assume people are buying this because they need that much butter.
At one point, I was actually looking for something just like this for making BBQ sauce. It’s actually a lot more useful than you’d think.
OK, rant over. Back to the fun.
Yeah, I agree that a one quart pan can be a handy size, but why market it as a butter warmer? Why not just say ‘one quart mini sauce pan’ or something like that. Or ‘one quart sauce warmer’. But because it is Paula it has to be butter.
I used to really like her, years ago, but like so many of the other FN personalities she has decended into a mockery of herself. To cop a line from Woody Allen, ” a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.”
because the material is probably so lightweight you’d burn anything you tried to cook in it. It’s a cya thing to name it a warmer.
I agree. The pour spout on the side is what technically makes it a butter warmer. Most butter warmers are quite small (for obvious reasons) but when making sauces, that pourer is quite handy. I would be aghast at the thought of filling that up with melted butter, but it is the shape that makes it a butter warmer.
I think people are assuming that one person is going to buy this “butter warmer” and use it to melt 8 sticks of butter for their dinner, but what if you were having a dinner party and were making lobster? Wouldn’t you want a fairly large pot to melt the butter and keep it warm (on the stove) until dinner was ready to serve? That’s like me (who lives alone), laughing at the ridiculous sizes of products at the Wholesale clubs and assuming that anyone who needs a giant jar of mayo, is just “Insanely Fat” instead of them having a large family to feed or owns a catering business.
And like you said, the pouring lip is what makes this more of a specific sauce warmer, then just an ordinary 1qt. pot.
Also, considering it also doubles as a soup, chocolate, or even sauce warmer, you’d want to make sure it was large enough to accommodate those things too.
And not to sound like I can’t laugh at this, I do find the “JUMBO butter warmer” to be amusing. It really is just poor choice of words… I still stand that the product is quiet useful.
I don’t think anyone here is saying the product is not useful, they are merely laughing at the choice of name. You yourself said that the name might be a “poor choice of words” so I don’t really understand why you are ranting… We are making fun of the NAME not the product. At least I am.
Not all. Some people here don’t partake in the standard “make fun” humor and prefer to express their ignorant stupidity. It totally ruins the fun when someone like that has to turn the fun into such hatred. I’m not crazy about that kind of humor, that is all.
Ms. Pauler doesn’t pronounce it “oil” it’s “earl”.
Anything to make a buck huh Pauler?
Nah, Pauler says “awl” for oil! Sometimes “ohwl.”
I think Anne calls it Earl.
Paula’s pronunciation is more like ‘ohwuhll’. Get it straight, please.
fuck you paula deen and your little butter warmer too
I guess with all the butter, “ohwal”, Crisco, lard, etc. that sow consumes, lubrication wouldn’t be a problem….even at her advanced age.
(Assuming, of course, one could manage to imagine someone else for long enough to achieve/maintain an adequate erection to actually do the job.)
That is the best thing to come along in a long time. I am perplexed as how they got a pan to know when butter is in it so it can melt it, simply amazing! If you go to Paula’s site and look at the future innovations they are coming up with a butter injector IV stand that looks fashionable in the kitchen and comes with a teather so that it will follow you around while you are cooking injecting a steady stream of 100% pure butter into your system. You do need the butter pan to melt the butter for the IV bag. It should be out mid 2012.
I don’t know which is more ridiculous…this, or Rachael Ray’s $20 “garbage bowl.” Well done, FN, you have completely dumbed down eveything you touch.
What’s odd about that? I have a 3 gallon butter warmer I call a turkey fryer. I use it to bath in, melted, but cool. Doesn’t everyone?
That should have been “bathe.” :-)
I think you all are misreading the label. Note the font sizes, and you’ll see that the label says “Paula’s Jumbo” (which she is)…and oh yeah, here’s a butter warmer.
As if I didn’t already have many reasons to detest Paula Deen. She keeps “whoring” out her name to everything (or so it seems).
What? Just 1 quart? So what do I do when I need to melt a gallon of butter?
My mum and I saw this at WalMart and I said, “See? Told ya.”
I’ve tried to use this product and have decided that it does not work. Whenever I attempt to warm my butter, it melts. It should be called a butter melter.
I attempted to warm my butter once, but it just seem to melt instead. I had the same problem with chocolate and cheese–no warming, simply melting. Glad there’s a pot for this now. Wait, what?
