Kitchen ToolsOne Simply Terrific Thing


Welcome to One Simply Terrific Thing, our ongoing collection highlighting the small instruments and kitchen items that make life higher!

I went a really, very very long time and not using a butter dish.

There’s no good motive why. I simply by no means bought one, at the same time as I winced each time I crumpled the ends of a butter wrapper to shut it again up, smearing a little bit of butter on my fingers within the course of, and realizing a few of that butter was going to finish up smeared alongside the underside of my fridge drawer, too.

It was an ineffective system that I’ve now remedied due to the large ceramic Sweese butter dish ($21 from Amazon).

I like its traditional appears to be like and the tight-fitting beech lid, which has a silicone ring seal you can too take away should you simply need the highest to relaxation loosely on the container.

However most of all I like its dimension: it measures 6″ x 3.5″ by 2.7″ inches, which suggests it’s deep and huge sufficient to carry two customary sticks of butter (4 should you actually pushed it) or one European-style stick of butter, like Kerrygold or Plugra. It’s actually extra like a bowl for butter, and since it’s so deep it additionally prevents butter from hitting and sticking to the lid – a mess-free bonus! And whereas it’s important to hand-wash the lid, the container may be put within the dishwasher. (Yay!)

After I’m in bread-baking mode and baking a pair loaves every week, I simply maintain the butter container on my counter so the butter is all the time smooth and able to use.

Claudia has a butter dish similar to this, and can be a serious fan:

I like that I can scoop the butter out relatively than have the butter sit on a tray. It additionally holds lots of butter (which is nice for my household) and stays clear due to it being extra of a bowl. I additionally depart it on my counter. I haven’t had a difficulty with butter going dangerous, however we undergo a number of it!

Cheers to good instruments that clear up messy issues!
