Oh lawd, that was mature.
I generally look at the recipe in question and decide what the butter needs to be used for.
If it’s a baking recipe (pastries, cookies, cakes etc) I tend to add a bigger “knob” of butter using a normal dinner spoon.
If it’s just like a stirfry, stovetop recipe, then generally just a scoop of butter with a normal dinner spoon,
I ask ‘Bells’ purely because you have no command of the ENGLISH language, an ‘Armateur’ is either:
a. the part of an electric machine that includes the main current-carrying winding and in which the electromotive force is induced.
b. the pivoted part of an electric device, as a buzzer or relay, that is activated by a magnetic field.
c. the iron or steel applied across the poles of a permanent magnet to close it, or across the poles of an electromagnet to transmit a mechanical force.
d. the protective covering of an animal or plant, or any part serving for defense or offense.
e. a skeletal framework built as a support on which a clay, wax, or plaster figure is constructed.

guys come on!!! the original question was about how much a knob of butter was not which is a better country. im a proud brit from a country where manners are important and reading the above comments from both sides of the atlantic is truly pathetic! I, as well as many other brits, love america and im actually visiting next week and if i encounter any of this kinda crap, my manners will go straight out the window. Stop being ignorant and get on with it!
In America, butter or margarine is sold in 1 pound boxes, 4 sticks to a box, so one stick is 1/4 pound, with a volume of 1/2 cup.
Each stick is usually wrapped in a paper with tablespoon markings, 8 tablespoons per stick.
Our measuring teaspoons are about 5 ml. Our measuring tablespoons equal 3 teaspoons.
This is soooo funny. I came upon this site because I was trying to make bubble and squeak and honestly didn’t know what a knob of butter was. I guess I know now and also know how crazy both you Brits and we Americans are. Someone is so proud of the size of his member he can find any excuse to fit it into a conversation. God love us!
