Product Info

Before refrigeration, we had that butter-soft-enough-to-spread thing sorted. Keep it in a sealed container in the kitchen, and away you go. Now, we have to deal with cold-from-the-fridge butter, that mangles toast and flattens flaky croissants. Give the butter crock a try, and see what spreadable butter is all about.

  • High quality exterior enamel protects against metal marks and other damage
  • Hard wearing, impermeable finish fired at extremely high temperatures is safe for cutting on with knives
  • Less than 1% porosity, blocking moisture absorption which can lead to cracking, crazing and rippling along the interior
  • Unique clay mixture creates a very dense material when fired, maintaining even temperatures and preventing scorching
  • Resistant to staining and flavor or odour absorption
  • A virtually non-stick glazed interior that easily releases foods for quick clean up
  • A perfectly colour matched palette of bold, consistent tones for easy mixing and matching with other Le Creuset products

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Simply leave butter out until it is softened, but not too soft (soft enough to bake with, but not melting)
  • Spoon butter into the clean, dry crock lid, while the lower crock part stays in the fridge to cool
  • Remove the crock from the fridge, and fill with cold tap water to the fill line
  • Place the lid butter side down into the crock (this will raise the level of the water up around the lid, sealing it off and keeping the temperature stable)
  • Keep away from heat sources (stove, microwave, etc.) as this will encourage the butter to melt on the outside and fall into the water
  • Change the water every 2-3 days, to keep things fresh
  • Scrape butter out using the flat of the knife to remove evenly, rather than removing chunks with the tip. This will help to ensure the butter has even weight and does not slip from the lid into the water

Specifications

  • Butter capacity: 150g (about 1/3 of a 500g block of butter)
  • Water capacity: 80ml (1/3 cup)

Beautiful Butter Every Time

What a beauty. Not only is this a good looking pot, but functional too.

Keeps the butter fresh and at just the right consistency. No more melted butter in warm weather or rock solid butter in cold. The water creates a seal, which stops the butter from becoming rancid, and maintains the temperature within the pot, for beautiful butter every time.

Review by Justin D. on 23 January 2014

What a nice idea - soft butter in a charming little pot. And much of the time it does that, and I see from a range of other reviews that everyone finds it fantastic. For me, though, there are three problems. First, the butter melts in hot weather and falls into the water - aliased to this is that it remains hard in cold weather. Second, for me it doesn't hold enough butter - granted there are fou Read more

What a wonderful product! Living in Durban, we can't leave butter out for any length of time and hard butter is just too difficult to work with! This solves all our problems and looks pretty on the countertop too!!

Brilliant problem solver for hard butter. If you have a large family; you may want to get 2 so that you always have soft butter handy as the bell may be a little small for everyday use in large families.
