Product Description

Butter Bell – Royal Blue Trim

The Butter Bell crock is the traditional French method for keeping butter fresh and spreadable without refrigeration for up to 30 days.

butter bell royal blue openThe Butter Bell’s unique design enhances butter’s delicate flavor, while providing a practical and decorative solution for serving and storing butter.

  • Butter stays soft, delicious and spreadable without refrigeration
  • Holds 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • Made of durable New Bone China
  • Dishwasher & Microwave Safe

The secret to keeping your butter fresh and spreadably soft is to keep a butter crock on your counter. Before the age of refrigeration, butter was often kept in earthenware pots submerged in water. The modern water-submerged butter crock is thought to have first appeared in France in the Middle Ages.

Crocks keep butter fresh at room temperature (up to about 80° F) on the counter for several weeks without spoiling. This is better than a refrigerator because the butter is protected from the air, and it remains at room temperature. It won’t tear bread and is easy to measure.

    :

    I appreciate that the goal here is to keep the butter out, so it’s soft and ready to use on that fresh bread I just baked, and it will keep the butter fresh much longer than your garden variety butter dish. And it works fabulous as a butter serving dish.

    But it you do put it in the fridge, you’ll have to take the butter containing bell out of the water cup, and keep it -right side up-.

    If you place the butter bell in the fridge, the butter will first get hard, then contract as it cools further, then it will detach from butter bell, and then fall from the bell into the water.

    Which boils done to fiddling with a piece of wet, hard butter, when you get ready to use it.
