1. Don't fill up the butter all the way up the rim, just fill it a bit below.
2. Change out the water every few days, making sure that the water doesn't ever completely evaporate out.
3. Make sure that when you fill with butter and as you use the butter, you maintain the butter on the edges so it can create a seal. Don't remove all the better from the edges - try to keep it as even as possible or else the butter can fall out.
The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it's a plain white color and I would like to see some other color options. As far as functionality goes - this is a 5 star item. It does exactly what it's supposed to do and is well made. I have no doubt it will last forever as long as it's not hurled and smacked around.
If you're looking for a simple item to keep your butter spreadable and you like the plain white look, then this item is definitely a good buy!
I like that this is white, it matches my table and my kitchen which are two different color pallets. Make sure you do not fill the butter past the top and don't add too much water or you would have a mess. Be aware that there is a bit of water that drips from this because it is sitting in water, I know that sounds silly to note, but just make sure you hold it over the crock when you lift and use it.
The crock and top are smooth glazed porceline, but the top ring around the handle is not glazed. We have had it for just a week and it has already absorbed some color from people's hands, kind of icky -- wish it was all glazed.
It does exactly what it's supposed to; keep butter without refrigeration on the counter for up to 30 days. It holds a quarter-cube of butter, and when it's full the butter is just below the rim of the bowl. The only minor mishap was when the butter was not "sealed" in around the edges and the suction of the water when removing the bowl caused the butter to be pulled out of the bowl and into the water. No harm done; we just fished the plug of butter out of the water and placed it back in the bowl.
While the photos of the crock show it full past the brim, don't do this. On the first fill bring the butter just "up to" the rim. As you use butter out of the crock try to take it evenly off the top and not from around the sides. The surface tension of the butter against the sides will keep it in the crock and out of the water. If you keep your house very warm, you might have some trouble keeping the butter from sliding into the water.
The Pinzon Butter keeper feels sturdy (thick) and should hold up to continual use. I find it helps to change the water every few days.

The ceramic got moldy after a month. We cleaned it in between sticks of butter, but one day it was covered in mold and coming from the actual dish. So it was thrown out.Published 15 months ago by Moz
