As for how it performs, I love the way these bells keep butter perfectly soft for spreading on toast and other baked goods. It is crucial to make sure to "pack" the butter in so it is touching the sides; otherwise you might find the entire blob of butter plops out into the water when you raise the top. An old-world solution to a modern-world problem of butter refrigerated rock hard.
I wish Norpro hadn't changed the design of the mold for this top---suppose it saves them a little expense in casting a smaller top handle?! I can't do without a butter keeper, but I'll start looking for another one with a handle that can be held easily.
You just fill the bottom part with water and the top cup with butter. Since no oxygen gets in (the top part of the butter is encased in water, but since oil and water repel, it doesn't feel wet.) The result is that the butter doesn't spoil and I always have soft, spreadable butter on hand. This results in using less butter than I would if I was trying to spread hard butter on my morning toast or muffin.
The top holds a little more than half a stick of butter.
The L. Tremain butter crock is made from a different material and process. There is no traditional layer of glaze over fired clay because it is made from New Bone China. The clay itself is sealed so there is no need for a layer of glaze that will eventually crack like the Norpro.
New Bone China is a relatively new invention by the Chinese and it is a unique claybody type. Essentially it is a porcelaneous stoneware that is fluxed with calcium. New bone is made with Whiting or Wollastonite which are minerals that are high in calcium carbonate with some other impurities like silica and alumina.
The calcium melts within the matrix of the claybody and causes the clay to become completely vitreous. In other words, the claybody is "glassified" with the introduction of calcium compounds and it will hold water (and butter) without a glazed surface.
If you're using a regular stick of butter I suggest getting the butter to room premature before you try to install it into the bell or else it'll just fall right out.
