Better butter bowl

Keep your butter in a Butter Bell Butter Crock, and you’ll keep your butter smooth and spreadable.

Taste is about texture as much as flavor, and room temperature butter is simply easier to work with and yummier than the hard stuff straight from the fridge. Make your baked goods, vegetables, and—let’s face it—just about everything more flavorful when you spread a smear of fresh, creamy butter from a Butter Bell. 

The clever crock doesn’t use plugs, batteries, or any electricity at all to keep your butter fresh and spreadable. Instead, your gustatory gold is kept fresh by a barrier of cool water.

Keeps butter fresh, soft, and accessible
Your toast will thank you.

Easy earthenware

The time-honored French method of keeping spreadable butter at hand is as easy as turning on the tap.

Simply add about 1/3 cup of cool, fresh water to the lower basin of the crock. Then pack a stick of butter into the Butter Bell’s lid. Once you set your lid onto the basin, the water forms a seal that protects the butter from going rancid for up to a month! Now you can keep your butter on the kitchen counter for an always-available, always-spreadable, and always-fresh condiment.

To maintain maximum freshness, we recommend replacing the water in your basin about every three days.

Add cool, fresh water; holds a full stick of butter; stays fresh for 30 days!
Extend your butter’s shelf life and spreadability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Will this still work in a warm climate?

Answer: The water inside the Butter Bell helps insulate the butter from fluctuations in temperature. The manufacturer recommends keeping the ambient temperature below 80ºF (26ºC) to assure 30 days of butter freshness, which is pretty easy to maintain in a house with air conditioning and proper insulation.

Question: Won’t the water make my butter soggy?

Answer: Nope! Since the lipids in butter naturally repel water, water can’t seep into your butter.
