French Butter Keeper in Nutmeg Glaze


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.

It's nice to actually have soft butter. Very nice!

This is my second order for the French Butter Keeper. This one is a gift for my daughter in law since she loved mine. We use our butter keeper every day. Great quality!

Very nice. Purchased to give as a gift. Thanks!

I did a lot of research on the internet on the best butter keepers and ran across Lee Daniels. I'm so glad I did. It is absolutely gorgeous. It fits 1 1/2 sticks of butter. The craftsmanship is stellar. It was packed so good, no way it would have broken, even if it was being shipped off to India. Definitely will buy again.

Beautiful! Fits almost two sticks of butter and looks wonderful on my counter.
