Making dairy goods at home is enjoying a revival. However, the once-common tools that were in our grandparent’s kitchens are now harder to find. So we review these butter paddles using the best features of the vintage ones we enjoy using.

Butter paddles, or hands, are a very practical and easy to use tool for the home dairy maker. They keep warm hands away from your butter while you press out the remaining buttermilk and they also help you shape your butter into artful balls, sticks, and blocks. They make great gnocchi paddles too.

These are the perfect tool for processing and shaping your homemade butter.

The grooves efficiently wick away buttermilk and the paddles are the ideal shape to form your butter into a block in the European style. A buttermaking must-have!
