Has anyone tried the natural peanut butter mixers that screw onto the top of the jar? I'm thinking about switching to "real" natural peanut butter vs. skippy natural, but I can't stand mixing the stuff.

I find dumping out the excess oil the best way to avoid stirring. No switching containers, no oily mess...I just dump it right down the drain. Why would I want to eat the excess oil, anyway? So I minus a few fat grams and calories from the jar. There's still enough oil left in the peanut butter to keep it cremy and spreadable. And once I've dumped out that oil, I find that it's still about the same amount at the bottom of the jar that gets hard, so I don't feel like I'm wasting anything (plus, that hard part at the bottom will melt a little in the microwave if you feel wastefull tossing it).

I dumped out the oil when I first got my jar, too, and though slightly thicker, I can still spread it without too much effort on my bread. It's nice to have the option whether to eat all that oil or not.

I love natural peanut butter too. It tastes so much better then the other stuff imo. Love the natural cashew butter from Trader Joe's as well. Yum!

I've tried almond and cashew butter. I really didn't love the almond, but did love the cashew! I bought the Nature's Promise brand at Giant market. It's nice to change up and try different butters!

OMG, I'd lose my mind if they came out with pecan butter! I LOVE pecans!
