    I just used the rolling pin method. Worked like a charm. Thank you.

    I use microwave on full power = 8 seconds, turn 8 seconds. Comes out perfectly and not melted in center.

    You mentioned that you can put the butter in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds but failed to add that the power level should only be 10 to 30 percent.

    I haven’t read all the comments, so apologies if this has already been mentioned, but I just take the cold butter, hold the cube in its wrapping paper, and grate it on a box grater. Done.

    I don’t remember where I learned this one but it works. Unwrap the butter and lay it on a saucer. Get a drinking glass or a mug and fill it with hot water then set it over the butter. Leave it for about five minutes. The heat will soften, but not melt the butter
