Product Description

Color: Antique Vert

The L. Tremain Company, founded in 1996, is a privately owed, family run business based in Los Angeles, CA. The company's main focus is to provide unique and time-honored kitchen tools, housewares and decorative tabletop lines to consumers worldwide. The very first product line launched by the company was based on a centuries old French butter storage device. The company has taken the traditional French concept, increased its effectiveness and beauty, to create an innovative butter storage unit specifically for the American palate the Original Butter Bell Crock. Since its inception in 1996, the Butter Bell crock has become the most recognized brand of butter crocks in the U.S and Canada. The Original Butter Bell Crock is a modern version of the authentic French beurrier. Made from high quality, durable New Bone China, the Butter Bell crock safely keeps butter at room temperature on the counter or tabletop without spoilage, refrigeration or odors. L. Tremain has recreated and improved this natural method of preserving the creamy texture and delicate flavor that makes butter the most desirable and most-used spread in the world.

Our family uses butter. Hate margarine and do not believe that it is "more healthy" for you. (Come on--it is only a molecule away from being plastic.)

At any rate, we moved to Arizona. Yes, it is nice and warm here. Not practical to leave butter out on a dish because it will just melt by noon. Always was frustrating to have to keep butter in the fridge and pull it out and scrape shavings off to spread on toast or what have you. We were wondering if there was some nifty gadget that would keep butter spreadable but not melted.

After searching on Amazon, we found butter crocks. I'm sure they've been around for a long time, but we were ignorant of their existence. It works like a charm. Very easy to maintain. We now have spreadable butter all day long in any temperature! Like I said, I wish we had discovered this thing a long time ago.

My wife loves the design and color. There are other brands and designs out there, so take your pick. But this one is really nice and adds some decorative class to the table.

I highly recommend this.

Color Name: Antique Ivory Rose Verified Purchase
I ordered the Butter Bell Crock in Antique Ivory Rose and it looks great on a granite counter top in a modern kitchen. It has made cooking so much more convenient & quick without my having to microwave the butter out of the refrigerator. (No matter how carefully you do it, the zapped butter always has cold hard spots & hot melted spots.) Fresh butter is now always available in a spreadable form & this is especially nice for breakfast toast. The little crock holds exactly 1 stick of butter (bring the stick to room temp on the counter, then pack it into the Bell -- very easy). The Butter Bell is heavy & nice quality, well-finished with no rough edges. I run it thru the dishwasher occasionally, but that's probably not such a good idea as the gold gilt will probably wear off eventually. I routinely dump out the old water & put in fresh water every few days, but it only takes five seconds. The water in the Butter Bell stays clear & clean.

Color Name: Antique Sea Spray Verified Purchase
So this beautiful device solves the modern, first world problem of butter being too cold to spread well on toast after it has been in the fridge. You stuff butter into the top of the butter bell, add 1/3rd cup of water to the bottom part to create a hermetic seal, and viola, your butter will be room temperature for the weeks to come. I recommend using salted butter instead of unsalted butter, as salted butter will allow for safer food storage under these conditions.

Color Name: Antique Azure Verified Purchase
When I first ordered this, I thought I might be able to just store the butter inside the crock part, and keep it in the fridge. When it arrived, I was skeptical because the bell where you actually store the butter is part of the lid. I'd not heard of a butter bell before, but figured that the French know what they are doing with dairy :) and that I'd give it a chance. I wasn't sure how the cold water method would keep the butter from turning rancid on the counter, but we are now converts. I change the water daily, rather than the recommended 3 days, because I'm still a little unconvinced and our house is heated.

The good part about this item? Butter is kept fresh, soft and ready to spread whenever you want it. The bad part? Butter is kept fresh, soft and ready to spread whenever you want it!!! It makes it ridiculously (and dangerously?) easy to slap that stuff on any piece of passing toast or roll. Before, we might not have put that much butter on something because we forgot to take it out to soften in time. Now? That's a thing of the past. And since I make my own butter at home in the Kitchen-Aid mixer, it's even more glorious to slather homemade butter on homemade bread and top it with homemade strawberry jam. It's the trifecta of breakfast goodness.

Get one and become a convert yourself.

P.S. My husband was trying to tell me something about this and couldn't think of the word "crock", so he called it a butter frog. It's been called that ever since. (perhaps he was thinking of a garlic frog, for keeping garlic)

Color Name: Antique Sienna Verified Purchase
We used to have a similar butter crock about 25 years ago. It was dropped and broken but I didn't know what to call it so I never shopped for another one. I finally thought I'd Google "butter crock pot and water" and see what I could fine. And of course, not only did Amazon have them, they had many choices way cheaper than boutique type websites. I just had to buy 2. One for the kitchen and one for the dining table.

They are so great for the summer when everything, specially butter, suffers from the heat. The water inside surrounds the interior butter keep and the butter stays semi firm, but still easy to spread. And, these are way neater and cleaner than any butter dish.

REVISION: They fit exactly 1 cube of butter, so it has to be completely empty to add more. If the inside walls of the interior cup get wet, the butter does not stick. Our old one had a much larger capacity and a small hole in the inside side wall. The hole lets the water into the inner butter storage chamber to keep it fresh. These newer ones do not have that inner hole, so there is an air pocket between the butter and the water just like if you turn an empty glass up-side-down in a bowl of large water. I'm going to look for another butter keeper in the meantime and just use the crock part for items.
