Clear measurements are the best thing to have for clean cooking and precise recipes. These Lurpak Cook’s Range pre-measured (50 grams each) butter blocks are ideal for just throwing in the butter without worrying about making mistakes in quantities. It’s pure fuss-free cooking and baking. The other good news is that their small size allows them to soften faster. So no more waiting around for your butter block to be soft!
