Incredibly Useful and Pretty
I purchased my first Butter Bell crock in May 2013 and have used it steadily since. While telling my neighbor about the Butter Bell a few months ago, she expressed interest in it so I decided to order her one for Christmas and order another for myself. I use a lot of butter in my home so having two Butter Bell crocks on the counter is the perfect way to avoid emptying a crock and having to retrieve cold butter from the refrigerator. The pastel pink antique crock is very pretty and looks great on the counter.
Why only four stars? There are two simple design improvements, which would make the Butter Bell crock five stars for me. First, I would add an etching in the inside of the crock base to mark the water fill line. Second, I would add a protruding lip on the inside of the top of the butter bowl base so that the butter bowl stays centered when inserted into the base. These two modest improvements would make the Butter Bell crock perfect.
I recommend this product.
