Product Details

Product Description

Softened butter on freshly baked bread is one of life's little luxuries. But butter stored in the refrigerator is impossible to spread without tearing the bread. This porcelain Butter Keeper from Fox Run solves the problem by enabling you to safely store your butter out of the refrigerator, so it stays soft and spreadable. White Ceramic; dishwasher safe. Fill the base of the butter keeper with ¼ cup of cold water. Pack softened butter into the cup of the lid and invert into the base of the butter keeper. The water creates a complete seal around the cup to keep the butter fresh. For best results, store away from sunlight, stove, or oven. Replace the water in the base of the butter keeper every three days with fresh cold water. Wash the butter keeper thoroughly in between use. Not recommended for processed cheeses or foodstuffs. NOTE: Due to the manufacturing process, the insert of the butter keeper may not sit flat on the base and may "jiggle" when touched; this is normal and is not a defect.

love it. Aug. 7 2011

i had low expectations for this item. have been keeping the butter on the counter in one of those plastic rectangular dishes for years now. it was ok, but very unattractive and messy.

knew about this type of crocks and always wanted to try it, but was skeptical that it would work right. So, i had a gift card and got it.

it holds just one stick of butter. i left the stick outside until it completely softened up and used a butter knife to pack it in the crock. the butter was so soft that i thought when i flip it over it would slide out, but no....nothing happened when i flipped it over.

put .5 cups of water in the dish, closed the lid and have been using it for 3 weeks now. I absolutely love it. the butter has never slid or even moved just a little bit towards the water. the temps have been in the high 80's, even 100's outside, so it's not that the butter has seen just cold temps and that's why it stays put.

in short, i'd get it again any day. would highly recommend it. love the modern look too.

if they make one for 2 sticks of butter, i'd get it in a second. but i still love this one.

11/13/11 update - still use it and still love it. wish it would hold more butter. would buy it again without hesitation

Butter Crock functional additional to kitchen Jan. 9 2007
By M. L. Roach - Published on
We had been wanting to try a butter crock and found one that looked right. When it came, it was a bit larger than I had imagined, but the crock holds one stick of butter nicely and it works well. We use it daily. It is fairly plain in looks, very functional. We're happy with this purchase.

Love this dish. Holds a full stick of butter and the lid can be flipped over and stand alone as a serving dish for the softened butter.

Exactly what I wanted May 13 2007
By R. Fuller - Published on
I'm very happy with this purchase. Most of the other crocks I found were round and considerably more $. The crock is well made. The square shape allows you to set the lid on its side while using it without rolling on the counter. Good value.

Water leaked out slowly April 3 2011

Water leaked out slowly from the bottom. Butter-holding capacity is quite small too. Nice square design, but, it didn't work for me.
