  • Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tilts! Unfortunately, after much anticipation I had to return this little pot. It tilts to the direction of the handle. The craftsmanship is outstanding except for the tilting. I might buy it again and see if I get lucky like everyone else in this review board.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect small warmer! I bought a couple of warmers, and just received today! Since I live in Tokyo, it was a bit expensive including import shipping fee, but It was a trivial thing for me! I have never found such a perfect pot in Japan. I am going to cook boiled eggs, miso soup for two.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbalanced - tips over I purchased Williams Sonoma's butter warmer based on previous high ratings. I don't know if the design has changed and the one that I received is different but this small saucepan is extremely unbalanced. It wants to tip in the direction of the handle. Though well made and of high quality, I am taking it back. Too much risk of ending up with a mess of melted butter all over my stove.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love It! I just put in the cart and live it before it even arrives for my use. The name Williams Sonoma already has a reputation. I have looked at several butter warmers ranging in price from $60 - $200. When I came across the W S butter warmer, I loved it and put in in the cart before checking it out. It is beautiful and will go nicely with a 30 year old kitchen upgrade of anything to do with preparing the food. To me this was an exciting find. ***The only reasonind did not choose 'Easy To Clean', is because I haven't used it yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute, Adorable Little Pot!! This is the cutest little pot. It's great for melting Chocolate or Butter. Those are the only things I use it for. It's small, but mighty!! It's a great additional to my kitchen especially during the holidays. Cleanup is a breeze. I have not had any problems with the nonstick surface. I have owned the pot for about 11 months.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butter Warmer Melts My Heart OK, so maybe the headline is an exaggeration. But this is the best butter warmer I've come across, primarily because it's basically a small, well-made saucepan. Sturdy, reliable, good weight, good nonstick coating. Not flimsy, easy to knock over, wobbly, quick to burn its contents. Perfect for melting butter and heating milk, maple syrup, cider, or anything that needs melting or heating. Make a couple of scrambled eggs. Or a cup and a half or so of almost anything. Reheat stuff. It's a good pan to add to your cooking arsenal and not just some wimpy ol' butter warmer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butter Warmer Pot My husband loves to cook and he said this is the easiest and most efficient way to heat up butter. Absolutely loves it!
