The Butter Bell crock's innovative design keeps butter at the perfect "spreading" consistency by reflecting outside heat while insulating and cooling the butter. Flavor and freshness is protected by an airtight seal of water at the base of the crock.
The Butter Bell's unique lid -- an upside-down butter cup -- maximizes stability during usage while providing a temporary resting place for butter knives. This lid is specifically created to provide internal and surface tension necessary to hold the butter in place. The lid nestles in, but does not touch the base of the Butter Bell's decorated crock.
Specifically designed, the depth of the base and the length of the hanging cup are precisely measured to allow placement of water in the vessel, while leaving enough space for circulation of the right amount of air and moisture needed to cool and hydrate the butter. The Butter Bell provides a clean method of storage of up to one full stick of butter while providing an easy, practical method of butter retrieval.
The Butter Bell crock allows for more measured control of butter application. In other words, you use less butter without sacrificing flavor -- important for today’s health-conscious consumers.
The product has the endorsement of noted chefs from Paris, France to Florence, Italy to New York City and Los Angeles. Chef Peter Roelant of Wine Bistro in Los Angeles, CA says, “The Butter Bell crock allows the flavors of fresh, herbed butters to blend beautifully for a rich, delicious taste. Chef Jean Francois Meteigner of La Cachette Bistro, also in Los Angeles says "The Butter Bell crock enhances the taste of fresh, herbal butters while making a wonderful presentation piece." Challenge Dairy Products, Inc., one of the nation’s top butter manufacturers endorses the butter crock as a storage method to "enhance the use and pleasure of using fresh creamery butter."
Dishwasher-safe and easy-to-use, the Butter Bell comes in multiple designs and colors.
