The Knife for Cleaner Knuckles
What’s worse than running out of peanut butter? Having to go spelunking into last week’s jar. There’s just enough left for one sandwich, but to produce it, mining is required, sticky knuckles and all.
Or, at least it used to be. The knife from PB JIFE is ergonomically designed to reach the actual bottom of the peanut butter jar. This little gem features an extra-long blade and a curved tip to get right into the bottom of any jar, whether it’s peanut butter, jelly, or any one of a hundred other condiments. You’ll enjoy the ease of use of this innovative, stainless steel knife and your knuckles will enjoy the reprieve.
Making the Best Use:
We suggest making good use of your new peanut butter knife by indulging in a favorite recipe. We recommend this quick and easy peanut butter split smoothie, from Ellie Krieger, via Food Network, that uses only four ingredients:
- 1 ripe and frozen banana, cut into pieces
- 1/2 cup nonfat milk
- 1/4 cup nonfat yogurt
- 1 1/2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
Place all ingredients into your blender and blend until ultimate creaminess ensues.

It’s better than a knife when it comes to snacking right from the jar.
