You Can Now Buy a Pump for Your Jar of Peanut Butter | 22 Words

Peanut butter is the yummy spread that’s delicious on bread, fruits, and sweets. But it can be messy to work with, and not to mention even more challenging to wash off your hands or utensils. That’s why dad of five, Andy Scherer, invented the Peanut Butter Pump to make our lives and our hands less sticky.

Scraping the bottom of a jar to get the last scoops of peanut butter without getting it all over your hand is a task that not even a ninja can accomplish. But when you’re a dad of 5, your life as a parent is pretty much that of a problem solver. Which makes total sense that Andy Scherer came up with the Peanut Butter Pump. Andy invented the kitchen tool in 2017 and launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in February with hopes of beginning distribution this August.

The pump fits on most popular 40-ounce PB jars in place of the lid. Simply screw it on and done. Then pump out the perfect amount of peanut butter for whatever you’d like. The Peanut Butter Pump is such a genius idea that the crowdfunding campaign already has close to 1000 backers and it passed its $20,000 goal.

Peanut butter lovers unite because this one is definitely a game-changer.

Calling all peanut butter lovers!

This is an invention that you’re going to want to know all about.

Andy Scherer, a genius dad of five, has come up with what’s probably the most useful kitchen gadget yet, the Peanut Butter Pump.

I can tell you right now, you're going to want this awesome invention in your life and all of your loved ones lives.

As a mom of two, and someone who makes PBJ sandwiches and peanut butter snacks every single day several times a day, I am so here for this.

It’s something we’ve all probably thought about but the idea never came to life.

Thankfully, Andy Scherer is here to make our lives easier.

It’s basically what everyone needs.

“Peanut butter just got peanut better."

We're ready to say goodbye to peanut butter residue forever.

Just pump the pump!

According to the site, “Whether you want to make the perfect PB&J sandwich or add just the right amount to your protein shake, it’s the perfect kitchen tool for measuring and dispensing peanut butter every time!"

The pump was designed to fit most 40-ounce peanut butter tubs.

You screw it on in place of a lid and pump out your desired amount of peanut butter on whatever you need to.

Goodbye sticky peanut butter hands!

This speaks so much to me since every time I make my kids PBJ sandwiches, I always have peanut butter stuck on me somewhere. As much as I am careful not to get it on me, it still happens.

“Ants on a log" just got easy.

If you’ve ever tried to get peanut butter into every crevice of a celery stick and just created a giant mess, this is what you need.

We haven’t even dived into how the pump works.

Andy Scherer thought of everything with his invention.

It has the Ribbon Nozzle, better known as the sandwich nozzle.

In case you just want the pump to spread it on a sandwich.

It has the Stream Nozzle.

Perfect for recipes, snacks, and smoothies. With this nozzle, you can add peanut butter to your crackers without accidentally crushing them while trying to spread peanut butter with a knife.

Each pump dispenses a fixed amount.

This is great for me because I either use too much peanut butter or not enough, there is no in between.

And for recipes, measurements are marked on the shaft to make food prep easier.

Can I get an amen?

No need to clean out the jars. Yes, you read that right. No cleaning the jars.

The pump scrapes the sides of the jar as you use it, so by the time the jar is empty, the insides are nice and clean, and you can toss the jar in the recycle bin without rinsing it out.

Even better, the pump is easy to assemble, disassemble, and the parts are dishwasher safe.

Just go ahead and take my money.

If you have a dog, the Peanut Butter Pump can come in very handy.

It’s perfect to fill your dogs toy with a special peanut butter treat.

And yes, it also works with crunchy peanut butter spreads.

Andy Scherer has literally thought about everything for his invention.

I feel like I can now have my toddler help with PBJ sandwiches without worrying about getting peanut butter everywhere.

And no sharp objects needed so it's much safer.

If you want to get in on this genius invention, you can!

The Peanut Butter Pump is being crowdfunded on Indiegogo. I am literally happy to give them my money.

If you sign up as a backer now, there’s a discount.

The cost of the pump with the two nozzles is $25 with an estimated delivery of August 2019.

The crowdsourcing campaign also lists other packages such as the "Dog Lovers" which comes with a dog toy you can fill with peanut butter for your furry friend.

Gotta have treats for your doggos.

While I’m signing up as a backer for the Peanut Butter Pump, I’m also thinking about all of the yummy recipes I’d like to make that call for peanut butter.

And while Scherer has been putting together this genius invention, I've been making lists of snacks.

Like this yummy peanut butter with cinnamon apple toast.

It would be so easy to spread the peanut butter with the pump.

Of course, cookies!

Is there anything better than baked goods?

Imagine how handy the stream nozzle will come in for this.

Yeah, I 'm pretty sure I can have peanut butter with every meal.

Peanut butter cake?

Heck yes! Are we drooling yet?

Make that two cakes because peanut butter cheesecakes are also delicious.

I'm just sitting here making myself hungry looking at these pictures.

And sometimes we need to go for something a bit more healthy like peanut butter with bananas.

Sprinkle bits of dark chocolate on them and it’s a slamming snack.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be counting down the days until August and searching for more recipes with peanut butter.

This will be our most used kitchen tool and I can't wait.
