420 Product Review: Magical Butter

Magical Butter
Magical Butter

Summary: 9.5/10

Works as advertised. This lovely appliance is to herbal butter what the rice cooker is to Sushi: indispensable. Total time spent, including opening box, washing unit, reading directions and making butter: 42 minutes. Ease of Use: Couldn’t be easier. Zero mistakes on the first try. Overall Value: Worth every penny. The fact that there is no clean up to speak of makes this product a bargain! The only negative, and it’s not a big deal, is the noise. It is a blender, afterall….and it sounds like one for a short period of time during the 2 hour cycle.

The Story:

I was asked to review this product in late December. I’ll admit, I was skeptical, but remained open minded and determined to give this thing a try! The box sat by my bed until 8:30 AM, January 1st, 2013.

On that day, I awoke a little thick-headed with a slight headache. Sluggish is a better description than hangover for the way I felt. What better time to do a product review? I reasoned with myself that if I could make this thing work in my current state of mind, anyone could do it.

So, I opened the box and discovered an obviously well made appliance. This is not in any way a cheap piece of junk! It’s designed very well, the parts are made of quality materials and fit together snugly. It just has the feel of quality. I was impressed, to say the least.


The directions were very easy to read! The operation of this device is all microprocessor controlled, leaving very little room for operator error…..perfect for an early morning hungover—I mean sluggish—product review.

I’ll summarize the instructions:

Put 2-5 cups of butter and 3-5 grams of your favorite herb into the machine. Press the “butter” button and the machine will do the rest. 2 hours later your butter is done and you can then add water and soap and press the “clean” button and the unit will clean up after itself.

Seriously, there’s not much more to the direction than that. Ease of use is a 10/10.

It also makes oil, milk shakes and there is a “Mushroom” button which I did not try.

Well, the directions said their favorite herb was Basil. So I woke up my wife and asked her if we had 5 grams of basil. She seemed irritated and went back to sleep.

So, not having the basil, I decided to use 1 ounce of resinous material I removed from my favorite plant using dry ice and a 220 micron screen.

Here’s What Happened:

Into the main body of the machine I put 5 cubes of butter and 28 grams of aromatic, resinous plant material. I then put the top of the machine on, plugged it in, and pressed the “butter” button. This process took nearly 3 minutes….and I was done handling the raw material at this point.

Immediately, a bunch of LED lights went off, the machine made some noise and it started blending the butter, heating it up, stirring it……all by itself. It was loud, like a muted blender during the blend cycle, which came on at intervals. As the program progressed through the butter making process, the blend cycles were spaced further apart and most of the time the appliance was silent.

Noise level during blend cycle: minus ½ point. This is the only negative and it’s really not a big deal at all. I’m grasping at straws here….and remember, I’ve got a headache! It’s New Year’s Day morning!

2 hours later, I had nice, gorgeous butter!

There was no smell, no smoke, and no mess! Did you hear that? No smell….

Clean up took no time at all. Add water and soap, press the button, rinse and done.

Why this Appliance is a MUST HAVE:

Herbal infused butter is both delicious and healthy. It’s also difficult to make and tends to create a smell that permeates the house, apartment, etc. Making butter the old fashioned way requires a crock pot or double boiler, a thermometer and about 2 hours of constant attendance and stirring.

If you cook it too hot, the herbs and their subtle qualities break down. If you don’t cook it enough, the herbs do not have the correct potency.

Well, with MagicalButter you don’t have to worry about anything. You don’t even have to grind up the herbs, as the MagicalButter even does that for you! This thing is too easy. No mistakes….perfect every time. You can make butter in under 5 minutes…press a button and literally leave the house and do something else!

Your herbal butter will come out the same way, time after time. That means more accurate recipes and better flavor!

There was nothing to clean up, no counter space lost, no mistakes made…..and perfect butter on the first try!

What a pleasure it was to read simple directions, press a button and have perfect herbal butter 2 hours later!

I look forward to making oil in the next few days and I’m sure it will just as easy! This little appliance is a true gem for those of us who enjoy herbal infused butter.

It is even better for people who use herbal oils for medical reasons, as Magical Butter is so simple to use even a person with serious disabilities could operate it successfully on the first try. If you can use a blender or microwave, you can use this machine.

Again, to re-summarize, this little gem delivers exactly what it advertises! That’s a rare quality for any company, especially in the genre of devices this appliance falls under. I love this machine and will give out 2 of them as gifts in the next couple months.

  1. This review was off the chain. I’ve been looking at this machine for a time now. I can’t wait to hopefully own one and hell hopefully getting my father one as well. You guys are awesome keep up the great work m!

  2. Question: The machine says to use 3-5 grams of herb…you used a full 28 grams…obviously, it was stronger, your way….but also much much pricier…how much can one use and still get the effect without blowing one’s budget???

  3. @disqus_FuocpYR941:disqus the amount of herbs you use and what kind is completely up to you. We give a range of what we use. Everyone has their own tastebuds. If you would like to have a private chat we can do that as well. Have a great week this review made mine.

  4. A friend will be reviewing this product in the bear future and I await her response. Thus far, everything I have read about this unit indicates it is a great product. Hope I win, but my luck is shyte. If not, I’ll save up my pennies to get one! Thanks for posting this. Cheers.

  5. We are only 2 months old so not sure if your local shops have it yet or not. We are working on more distribution channels.

  6. Thanks bud we are working hard to do everything right. I feel I built a great product now I just want to stay grass roots and keep in great contact with my consumers. Our customers are incredible, this has been fun!

  7. I’d like to see something tangible here – how about some pictures of the inner workings and how they work and are maintained? What are the variables or options?

  8. I can answer most questions you have. Some of the program info is proprietary but aside from that let’s chat via phone or email. I’ll be available all day Monday. Email me your contact info through the site and let me know how you want me to contact you. Cheers

  9. Id love one of these. I’ve real problems with making budder as I’m disabled… This looks really good.

  10. Please! do so!
    I’d LOVE your product after researching it for the past 4 hours! College life dictates NO cooking in the room, and NO money to buy things!!

  11. Quick question!! It says that it also makes ‘oil’? Now does this machine make oil that you use to ONLY cook with? Or does this machine make oil oil you can dab with? Can you use the oil produced in this item to ‘dab’ in an oil rig, oil dome, or vapor curve? Thanks!! Awesome looking product btw and the reviews are great!!!

  12. I have been researching the Magical Butter Machine for the past few hours and it just seems almost to good to be true…. I am no novice when it comes to making this kind of butter and have tried just about everything out there, as far as potency goes, what are your thoughts? If anyone has one and has made butter, how strong was it?

  13. me and my brother both have been using canna butter the last few years,mosty in brownies and haystacks/cookies the old fashioned way in a crockpot and saving our vaped goods to make oil,i just discovered this device by accident and i thnik we will both be picking one up in the near future,cant wait!!

  14. I have been waiting a long time for an item like this. I can smell the brownies already….can’t wait till they are available.

  15. Magical Butter machine makes the best cannabutter ever thanks for sharing just bought mine!

  16. Got one for my wife as a gift. What a great appliance! This device is extremely well-made… very sturdy. And so simple to use. Takes about 5 minutes or less to put the ingredients in, close it up, start it, and come back later when it’s done. Our very first batch of “herbal” butter came out better than anything we have ever tried before, and with a LOT less work! Another genius aspect is that clean up is so easy. Add a little water and soap and from there it literally cleans itself. And I do mean literally! I feel very comfortable and pleased with this purchase. It is well worth the price!

  17. this machine sucks. I follow your easy stoner instructions and all my butter keeps coming out as watery butter that never separates. firt time ive every seen oil and water solidate into one.

  18. I had bad results from my first butter run with the machine…. It blended the water and butter and herb so fine that after i strained it and left it in the fridge overnight to let the butter solidify… that never happned. Now my 2 sticks of butter is completly disolved into 1.5 cups of water and its 14 grams of fine herbs wasted

  19. Our Botanical Extractor is designed to extract directly into butters, oils, skin care products and tincture bases. You can add water to butter and get separation; however, it will not work right if there is too much water (avoid dilution). It sounds like you added a lot more water than butter? We want to help, please give us a call so we can give you step-by-step guidance, we believe you will be satisfied with your final results.

  20. Okay well this is 1/2 way thru July and I haven’t heard of any of us readers getting a unit. Come-on really now do we have to lie to get peeps to read this?

  21. Why are there no tincture recipes for this machine anywhere?
    How much bud to alcohol ratio do you add?
    Also what temperature is best advised for a tincture?

    Thank you.

  22. Has anyone tried to make butter on the 8 hour option/at 160 degrees? If so how were your results compared to the regular 2 hour butter option?

  23. Get the item new in box and put 2 1/2 cups of coconut oil in and the herb. Then put the top on and plug er in. Blinking lights. Instructions say to add more water or oil to reach the min line. Well i add almost another full cup and while i am adding that cup i am stopping along the way and checking to see if still just blinking lights and indeed every time just blinking lights.
    So now my cannabis and 3 cups of oil are just sitting there waiting to be made into canna-oil. not stoked on this.

  24. After you pour you butter out of maker into bowl let sit for bout an hour to let water and butter separate before putting into fridge. or else it separates in fridge at the same time butte is trying to harden and then you get a butter like slush. I dont have one of these products (havent worked in over a year waiting on SSDI spinal surgeries ) but its on my wish list. but i have experienced non separation in my earlier attempts at butter

  25. how do you rest MB2 if it gets unplugged in the middle of a cooking cycle! I waited for 1 hour, and plugged it back in, all the lights are flashing, will not reset, or respond! help! lol
