We have one of these butter bells, ps8. It's really great and keeps butter fresh for a very, very long time.

I hate when people put my butter in the fridge! It makes it impossible to spread. Grrr!

Those are just too cool! I'm gonna have to put that on my Christmas Wish List. I didn't see on the site, how much does one crock hold? Thanks for showing me these.

we had a crazy Egyptian cook who always kept the butter in the cabinet---and boy did he use it---never did get him used to the concept of "low fat cooking" just like he couldn't believe that we didn't want a mountain of sugar in the tea---he added it anyway--guess who was in charge---Mohammad!!!

It holds 1/4 pound or 1 standard stick of butter.

Growing up, we always left it out on the counter except when the weather got real hot, as it tended to get rancid, But in an air-conditioned house, you'll be fine.
I keep it in the fridge now, as we don't use it every day. I can always nuke it a little if we want it to be spreadable.
