The Butter Mill awarded the 2015 IHA Innovation Award

Lake Mary, FL (PRWEB) March 18, 2015

Cooks Innovations™ has been awarded the 2015 IHA Innovation Award in the “Kitchen Hand Tools & Cutlery” category for its revolutionary Butter Mill. More than 500 new products for the home and kitchen were entered into the Innovations Awards competition at the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago, March 7th-10th, 2015.

“We are proud that the Butter Mill has been recognized by an independent expert panel from the International Home + Housewares Association. This home and housewares authority sees countless new kitchen products from around the world, so it’s clear that they recognize the true innovation of the Butter Mill and how useful it is for families,” said Peter Vander Stichele, President.

Home cooks have long struggled with effectively spreading cold butter. Now, with a few simple twists, the Butter Mill grates cold butter effortlessly, making it easy to store, collect, and spread butter on bread, vegetables, and even corn on the cob.

The attractive design makes the Butter Mill a helpful tool for both the kitchen and dining room, and its use extends beyond regular butter. Creative cooks can add honey, garlic, herbs, and spices to enjoy deliciously flavored butter.
