Glass Butter Dish
Too smooth, even for glass
I'm uncertain whether the other reviewers actually used this butter dish, or I received one whose design has been recently changed, but the slope of the cover's sides and its too smooth, even for glass, texture make it hard, if not impossible, to lift the cover off. To take the top off, you'd have to flip the dish on its side and let the cover fall off and hope the butter won't fall out.
Talk about design defects!
Though it has a nice simple design, and you could enjoy the view of your butter through its clear glass and it has a nice heft, I suggest you take a pass on this glass butter dish. There MUST be better designed butter dishes elsewhere.
Thanks for reading.

Best Price Around
This glass butter dish is the most affordable out there. The quality is outstanding and the price is incredible! I had to order 400 of these to give out as sponsor prizes for a major event in our county. The service I received from the Container Store was exceptional!!

The sloping dome of the lid makes it difficult to take off the dish. I kept it because I really needed a butter dish, but I don't love this design.

I had been looking for a good, basic butter dish for a while and was thrilled to find exactly what I wanted at the container store! Basic but classic! Love it!

Like the dish
The only detractor of this butter dish is the slick sides on the lid. It is difficult to pick up the lid without getting butter all over the inside, or having it slip out of your hands. The tapered top doesn't give anything to grip easily. And, if you have any hand troubles like arthritis, you will have even more difficulty.
But, I love that it is a dish with sides so that if the butter melts at all, it doesn't run all over. Everything else about it is great.

Simple Clear Glass Butter Dish
I have been looking for a plain butter dish to keep on my counter but also to be able to put on the table. This one fits the bill. Nice weight glass; will go with any decor.

Just what I needed!
Simple, classic, easy to clean.
I just wanted a simple, covered butter dish without frills or crazy designs that clashed with my decor. I can't stand those "butter bell" type contraptions. I live in the desert southwest. In summer, the butter softens and falls out of the "bell". My only other choice was to keep it in the frig all the time--not spreadable. Since my cats LOVE butter, I needed a dish with a cover that they can't knock off easily. I wanted clear glass so I could see how much room temperature butter is available at any moment. This is the perfect covered butter dish.

Wrong size for today's butter cubes
Today's sticks of butter are short and fat, but this dish was made for sticks that are long and thin, so the butter sticks to the inside of the lid and has to be pried loose every time it's used.

nice and simple
It is very nice with simple lines. It replaced my old plastic one and this one looks much nicer on my counter.
