I too have a butter bell and I love it. Would be lost without it. I change the water every day. Everyone should have one.

Yes, Addie! Aren't they wonderful inventions? They seem almost too good to be true. But you and I know how great they are.

I love mine. Mine is the one with butter in French on it and has flowers. Like you, I have had mine for eons. I can't remember when I got it.

I have a butter bell, Shrek hates it. I guess I have to wait to use it when he no longer can care about it.

At our house, the "in-use" cube of butter is usually on the counter in a covered dish. In the rare event that it went bad, no big deal, out it went. I can't even remember the last time that happened.
Adding: In a bell or in a butter dish, it seems to all be the same here. It might be the granite counter tops since the feel cool all the them.

We always have butter in a dish, not in the fridge. Once in a blue moon, if we haven't been using much butter, the outside will oxidize and turn darker yellow. I just scrape that off.

Looove my butter bell, even though I haven't had it 20 years. Maybe 6-7 (?) when I first found out about them. Mine is smaller, maybe almost 1/2 stick worth. We use it just for spreading so I would rather put fresh in more frequently than be able to keep a lot in there.

I love my butter bell, it is small--perfect for one person. My friend from Poland is appalled that in NA people keep butter out--it is a dairy product. I take butter out when I know I need it to soften it, otherwise, it is in the fridge. Since I no longer eat bread, I don't need "soft" butter for spreading.

We didn't leave the butter out when we were doing Atkins (low carb) and weren't eating bread.
