French Ceramic Butter Keeper
Protect your butter.
Here's an earthen, French-country way to keep your butter soft and spreadable. Originating in the late 1800s, this method involves adding water to the base of the keeper so that, coupled with anywhere from 1/2 a stick to a full stick of butter, it creates an airtight seal.
Please note that each piece is handmade to order, and will ship out in approximately 8 business days.

Details & Materials +-
Butter keeper is approximately 4.00" - 4.25" in diameter x 2.25" H; Holds about 1 stick, or .25 cups of butter.
Due to the handmade nature of each item small size variations can occur.
Care & Notes +-
Ready to get the butter-keeping going? We've got a few tips for ya.
- Start by adding a bit of water to the bottom of the keeper—the water should touch the top of your butter when you put the lid on.
- Add enough room-temperature butter to the top so that it is full, but not overflowing (about 3/4 to 1 stick of butter should do).
- Don't forget to change the water in your keeper every 2 to 3 days. That way, your golden goodness can stay fresh-as-can-be at room temp for about a week.
Oh, and pro tip: If your butter begins to soften too much, don’t fret! Just pop it in the fridge until it’s that just-right texture.
