Handthrown Stoneware Butter Keeper
Butter, you’re a softie.
Details & Materials +-
Brooklyn, New York
Each butter keeper is handmade, so variation in size is to be expected. Approximately 4.75" in diameter x 3"H and holds about 1-1.5 sticks of butter
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 1 to 1 1/2 sticks 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.
Dishwasher safe, hand wash recommended.
