It’s a keeper.

When you need a swipe of soft butter on your toast, but the stick in the fridge is too rock-solid, we turn to the almighty butter keeper. Fill the lid with a softened stick of butter, and the base with just a little water. The water helps create an airtight seal, keeping the butter fresh, creamy, and ready for anything. This ages-old technique gets a modern update with a swirled grey or speckled black Corian lid.
