Emile Henry French Butter Keeper
Belle of the beurre.
No one likes trying to smear hard butter on toast. Keep your butter at a perfectly spreadable room temp with this ingenious butter keeper from family-owned heritage brand Emile Henry. Simply fill the base with the recommended amount of water and change it regularly, and the natural evaporation will keep your butter fresh for 30 days. These bell-shaped pots hold up to 7 ounces and are handmade from French Burgundy clay. Each piece is stamped by the artisan who made it (we got to see the Emile Henry process in action). Because of their high-heat vitrification process, you don’t have to worry about knives scraping or chipping the surface—scoop away at that butter!
