I love natural peanut butter! But not the way its oil separates to create a gooey unstirrable mess. The clever peanut butter mixer invention makes short work of that scenario. Just screw it onto any standard 16 oz. peanut butter jar and crank its chrome-plated mixing rod. Oil is smoothly and effortlessly stirred back into your peanut butter. There’s even a gasket that wipes the rod as you remove it and a removable lid liner that make clean-up a snap. No spills. No hassles. Just magically mixed PB in seconds!
