This piece is known as a butter keeper or french butter dish. This clever crock keeps your butter soft, spreadable and fresh at room temperature! Simply soften a stick of salted butter* and pack it into the lid. Add an inch or so of water to the base, and invert the lid into the base. The water forms an airtight seal so your butter stays fresh on your counter, ready for toast duty anytime. Change the water every few days and you're all set!

Our family uses this all the time and we can vouch personally for how well it works- just don't let your kids leave it on a hot stove unless you're making steamed lobster for dinner!

* You can use unsalted butter in your butter keeper; just salt the water that you add to base to keep your butter fresh and tasty.

This butter keeper is glazed in sapphire blue with creamy blue on top. A handmade wood spreader is included! (shapes and designs vary).

Dimensions (approximate)
3" tall
