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.

The L. Tremain butter crock is made from New Bone China and does not have the traditional layer of glaze over clay. The clay itself has been made water proof. Because they are made differently and from different materials, the L. Tremain crocks don't have the same problem as the Norpros which is the thin layer of glaze developing fine cracks that eventually allows butter to seep beneath the glaze and go rancid. I had to throw away two Norpro butter crocks before discovering the L Tremain crocks.
Save yourself some hassle and money and buy one of the L. Tremain crocks instead of a butter crock made with traditional glazed clay like the Norpro crocks.
I was so excited to receive my Butter Bell Black Matte Crock. It was EXACTLY as pictured. True to color & matte texture smooth.
I highly recommend.
I will be purchasing more Butter Bells for gifts.
The price is exceptional & really something everyone can use in their kitchens. Even college students would love one of these. They have so many beautiful colors to choose from. I also recommend PRIME. I am loving the free 2 day shipping. Feel free to ask any questions. Now order you a Butter Bell you will not be disappointed.
UPDATE: We just love our butter crock. I put it away because I did not think my husband used it. He noticed immediately & requested I put it right back out for use. He even asked twice. I place mine next to stove so when we cook it is handy. The black looks so nice with my black appliances. But I must admit I would like the yellow crock too for a pop of my favorite color. :) Great Christmas Gift or House Warming Gift or even just a Happy for someone special!!! Highly recommended. Easy upkeep.
I got this because my husband was raised in a family that kept their butter out a room temp all the time. This grossed me out initially, but I realized that nothing bad comes of it, aside from undeniable mess! My teenage kids are in the butter all the time and with it being soft, it just seemed to be all over the place. In the summer I insisted that it go in the refrigerator because it is so warm here that it would turn into a puddle of melted butter all over the butter dish. Then I heard about the Butter Bell and thought it might be a good compromise--they get their soft butter and I get a way to keep it a bit more neatly contained.
What I love: The fun green color livens up my counter space. It takes up less space than my traditional butter dish and is easier to move around. Getting the soft butter out of a cup-shaped vessel is actually easier than from a flat dish. The butter does seem to be the perfect consistency, as advertised.
What I don't love: There is inevitable wetness on the outside and top edge of the crock when you take it out. It doesn't really hurt anything, but it's just kind of drippy. I wipe it off with a paper towel if I have one handy before use. Also, it sounds silly, but there is actually a bit of family training involved in using this product! I've had to try to teach my husband and teenagers to change the water regularly, and how to refill the butter when low. None of this has been very successful, and I find that I'm the one regularly doing this for everyone, even if I'm not the one using the butter.
What I've learned: It is a bit of a hassle to soften a whole cube of butter (wait time) and then have to get it properly situated in the crock. What I've found is that it's better to not let the crock get all the way empty. Instead, when it's about half-way gone, cut a half-cube of cold butter and just squish it right down into the soft butter remaining in the crock. It gets right down into the middle of the soft butter, with the soft butter adhering to the sides of the crock to hold it in place. Smooth it over with the displaced soft butter and voila! It's full to capacity again. The cold butter just gradually warms up and incorporates into the soft butter. This works great for a family like mine that goes through quite a bit of butter. If it ever does get all the way empty, then it's time for a thorough washing, but really, I haven't noticed that it seems to need washing that often.
I'm anxious to use the crock in the summer--the true test! I'm sure my family is hoping it is successful so I won't put their butter in the refrigerator again!
