Sawyer Ceramics 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. The porcelain butter keeper is slightly larger than its stoneware companion.
"I feel like there are miniature people constantly fluffing my butter. What could be better?" —Hannah Wilken, Email Coordinator
