Porcelain Butter Keeper
Build me up, butter cup.
One of our best-sellers and best-loved, the French Ceramic Butter Keeper, may just have gotten—dare we say it—even better, thanks to a slightly larger design in a fresh, bright white exclusive to Food52. Hand-thrown on a pottery wheel in California in the same style as its older sister, it keeps your butter soft and spreadable. Just fill the base of the keeper with water and fill the other half with just over a full stick of butter, creating an airtight seal when closed.
Please note that each piece is handmade to order, and will ship out in approximately 8 business days.
