  • Clear glass cover with knob for easy lifting.

  • Is anyone else who purchased this noticing the copper starting to change color to a bronze? Would anything help stop this?

    I was confused my that last question. So it does need to be refrigerated or no?

    Asked by: Juls
    Actually, Juls, butter is fine not refrigerated for up to one month. If you go through it fairly quickly, you can leave it out on the counter or in a cupboard.

    Can this be used to keep butter on the counter? The summary says can be used to keep butter in the refrigerator. Wasnt sure if that meant only the refrigerator or if it was safe to use on the counter as well.

    Asked by: jbcalvin0227
    Hi jbcalvin0227, This butter keeper doesn't work the same way as a traditional butter crock. With a butter crock, you would pack 1/2 a stick of butter into the well in the underside of the butter keeper's cover. You then add about 1" cold water to the base. Place the lid into the base; the butter is now sealed from air by the water. You leave the butter keeper out on your counter or table for fresh, spreadable butter. This is an example of a traditional butter crock:

    What kind of butter is everyone putting in. This is just to cute

    Asked by: Smurfette
    Hi Smurfette, This is suitable for any type of butter as the base is handcrafted from solid copper with a food-safe tin lining.
