How is butter weighed?

Butter is commonly measured by sticks in the United States and by weight or volume in Europe, the UK and the rest of the world. This can, of course, make it tricky when you're following a recipe that's from a different country to the one in which you live. It is for this reason that we built this butter sticks calculator to help you with conversion.
