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.
  • If your butter begins to soften too much, don’t fret! Just pop it in the fridge until it’s that just-right texture.
