If I ever get it to work, I will update this. A Canadian friend who recommended butter keepers to me is visiting soon and may be able to show me how to stop the butter falling out. I have tried butter of varying degrees of hardness, pressed down with varying degrees of firmness. It either falls out in a chunk or goes soft and oozes into the water. But it clearly works for some people so I am prepared to alter this review if necessary!

Not really a butter person but my Dad is so have in the fridge for when parents occasionally come round for lunch/dinner.

Quickly realized butter from fridge too hard, if you forget to remove from fridge long before meal, and like me don't use enough to leave in conventional butter container out the fridge.

This butter saver does the trick where it also looks really good on the table and is not too big.

For those of you that have never tried one of these then you don't know what your missing because its a brilliant idea and really does keep butter nice and firm but spreadable.
We were sceptacle at first when buying this that it was just going to be another one of those things that did not work well we so surprised at the way it keeps butter firm .
We are very pleased with it but find it strange that you cant buy them in the UK it seems the Americans really love butter bells in fact they are widely use over there. and delivery only took 2 weeks so we were very pleased,a very clever piece of pottery that looks nice and is well made highly recommended,

It does its job well, but... 6 April 2007
By Jimmy K - Published on Amazon.com
Never having used one before, I was pleased to see how well the butter keeper works. It's such a practical gadget based on a simple principle.

Unfortunately, after about six months the Norpro revealed a problem that makes me think it should be replaced. The glazing developed many (almost invisible) hairline cracks under the butter, and oil from the butter was then absorbed by the clay container. After washing and drying, the container now slowly oozes rancid oil through the glaze. It continues oozing for many days, even after repeated washing.

I have come to love having softened butter on hand, and I will definitely buy another butter keeper, but I'll try a different brand. Perhaps this is one instance of getting what you pay for.

For Raw and Pasteuized Butter: THE PRO'S and CON'S of a BUTTER BELL ...all worth it! 6 April 2009
By B. A. Sjoblom - Chyatte - Published on Amazon.com
I've used this butter bell for quite some time. I make homemade butter from fresh raw (unpasteurized) milk and the butter bell keeps it fresh on my counter top. The butter bell works well in cooler months but when summer sets in, it is possible for the butter to slide into the water --butter is still good, just scoop it out of the water. In winter months, change the water every few days; in summer months, use very cold water and change it everyday. Use around 1.5" of salted water in your butter bell to make the seal. The purpose of the water is to seal the butter off so it will not oxidize as quickly. The purpose of the salt is to stop mold in the summer months. It sounds like a lot work but it doesn't take 10 seconds. For those of you who buy retail butter, it is pasteurized and usually salted so it keeps longer than homemade butter. In Summer, place your butter bell in the fridge after retiring for the evening. First thing in the morning, take it out for the day. In winter, if changing the water regularly your butter will stay fresh on the counter for several weeks; however, in summer, your butter will only stay fresh for a week. If using raw butter in the butter bell you can only leave it out for a week in winter and a few days in summer. You must wash your butter bell in hot water and soap when all butter has been used before putting in more butter or it might mold (especially if you don't use salt in your water). Again, it may seem like a lot of time spent but it is not once you do it a few times it only takes seconds. I hope this helps.

Keeps butter fresh and spreadable 15 July 2005
By Homemaker - Published on Amazon.com
It keeps butter soft and ready to use. Water should be changed every 2-3 days to keep it fresh. We use a lot of butter and this makes it more convenient. It's not too large (about 4" high and 3.75" across) and holds a stick of butter. The easiest way to put butter in is to let it get soft before using a knife to pack it into the bowl on the lid. I try to get all the air pockets out and not let the butter mound over at the top. When the top goes into the base it will push the butter further in. When taking off the top, I usually let the excess water drip into the base so it doesn't get too messy. Washes easily in hot soapy water. You could put the whole thing in the fridge if you're not going to use the butter for a while.

Good Buy 15 Oct 2005
By Rence - Published on Amazon.com
It really does work. I was kind of skeptical, but I really do hate spreading butter when it's cold. I hate it melting and making a mess on my counter too. So I thought I'd try it.

This little guy keeps the butter contained, soft and spreadable. I even bought my brother one for his kitchen.

Performance depends on ambient temperature 21 May 2007
By J. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The ambient temperature in the room where you keep this has a significant effect on how well it works. It's pretty much the ideal way to store butter if the room temperature stays constant between about 60 and 75 degrees F. Below 60 degrees, the butter will be too hard to spread without tearing soft bread; above 75 degrees it will begin to melt and spoil even though air can't get to it. I much prefer fresh air, so I use heat and A/C as little as possible. When the indoor temperature falls within the optimum range I use and enjoy the butter keeper very much. Since that works out to be about half the time here in Western NY, I'm giving this three stars. The rest of the year I keep the butter in the fridge. I haven't seen anybody else even mention temperature as an issue, so I'm doing it.
