Do think twice... this is fashion instead of function.
on 12 December 2014
Under-whelmed and regret this purchase. Yes the colour is lovely and the design is pleasing on the eye. However in functionality this is a poor product, and very over-priced. It's too snug a fit for standard butter blocks, so the lid inevitably hits the butter and creates a fine mess inside as well as wasting butter. Also there is no 'grip' for the butter to rest on, so sometimes it slides around when you try to scrape some, creating yet more mess and waste. The lid doesn't sit well at all, it's very insecure and moves around very easy - transporting the thing to the table needs both hands to make sure the lid doesn't fall off. It's also very noisy - I realise that sounds pedantic but after a few early mornings with the constant clattering in use and when the lid moves around the prettiness soon loses its novelty. After a few weeks we were so sick of it that it went to the back of the cupboard with the unused gadgets, and the cheap and cheerful but entirely functional dish we had before is back on the table.
