Butter. I grew up in a butter family, I've never bought margarine, and I'm getting on in years. Maybe that's why I'm getting on in years.

Default Butter or margarine?

Which do you prefer? I use only real butter for cooking, baking and serving at the table.

At least butter is natural, while margarine consists of artificial chemicals.

When I saute, I like to use a 50/50 combination of olive oil and butter.

Butter. I have never bought margarine in my entire life and regretted it every time I had it at someone else's house( I don't think I have had it in well over 20 years). I loathe the taste of it, so chemical and fake, there is nothing wrong with butter in moderation like all things.

I cook mostly with olive oil but sometimes only butter will do. And margarine would utterly ruin a good artisan bread with some good cheese IMO.


There is NO substitute for butter.

I use both. I love the taste of real butter in food, and I do use it in recipes very often, especially if it's something special. I use margarine occasionally, because I have high cholesterol. I love real butter on bread, but I usually just use I Can't Believe It's not Butter.

Same here but we still have margarine here and there. Would like to go 100% butter.

I use butter for cooking -- there really is no substitute -- but use the organic Smart Balance on toast. It's the one food where I prefer the mouth feel of margarine.
