Black French Butter Keeper in Temmoku Glaze

Sorry, this item has sold.

Here is a modern version of a time honored French innovation. Used to keep butter fresh at room temperature, this stoneware crock will make a handsome addition to your kitchen and informal dining table.

Here’s how it works: Pack butter into the lid and invert into about one inch of cold water in the bottom of the pot. The cold water will form a seal to ensure the butter stays fresh and creamy. The water should be changed every two or three days.

The French Butter Keeper is dishwasher safe and measures about 4 ½ inches wide and 4 inches tall. It holds 1 to 1 1/2 sticks of butter.

Please note:
This item is offered on a made to order basis. You will receive your butter keeper about three weeks after purchase.
