Rated 4 out of 5 by Great storage Love the airtight seal. I don't use butter often and hate throwing half used pieces away. This keeps it as fresh as is possible. Should have read the size more carefully. It is a little taller & wider than I thought. May 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Solution This is a great problem solver for me. I was finding that as soon as I opened a stick of butter it was very difficult to keep fresh. This is plastic and air tight when the lid is on and does the job of keeping the butter fresh until the last bit is used up. This product is easy to keep clean as well. I haven't put it in the dishwasher as it wipes clean in just a few seconds with warm soapy water. I've been using it for about 3 months and it still looks like new. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is that both the tablespoon and teaspoon measurement are marked the same (TBSP) even thought he measurement lines reflect both measurements.

Rated 1 out of 5 by re design The lid on this dish fits so tightly that it takes a long time to get it off and I don't have weak hands for I work for a living. February 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by handy dish! This is a great product. I've used butter dishes lots of times, but this one stays together when it is closed so you don't accidently lose your butter. The measurements on the sides are fantastic! I can't tell you how many times I've pulled out an open butter to cut off a tablespoon for a dish I was making and had to line it up with the measurements from a fresh stick of butter. No more pulling out a new stick because the measurements are already in front of you! Bakers and chefs will love this feature. June 25, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Okay butter dish I absolutely loved this butter dish, until I washed it. I hand washed it, too. I liked the idea of the lines and the amounts listed, but when you wash it, it smears all over and stains the white plastic. I still use it, obviously, but the reason I liked the dish and purchased it washed away. June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best ever This is the best butter keeper ever for a person who likes to meassure, the recepies give you instructions in spoons or ounces so this is wonderfull! It is dishwasher safe but i dont so the blue marks will not fade away!!! April 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great find This item is perfect. Great seal but not hard to open. The measurement lines are helpful as well. April 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase! Butter dishes are hard to find and this one is a great find! Dishwasher safe, with a cover that snaps into place and won't fall off easily but it also easy to remove. Love the addition of the measurement markers and that it's dishwasher safe. Great purchase! April 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Like, but dislike This butter keeper is great for doing what it's called and the blue measurement lines are a fantastic idea. However, the blue lines started to wipe away with the first washing after the first use. I'd honestly have a 'whatever' attitude about that, but the blue didn't just wash away; Instead it just smeared and now the white dish is stained with blue smudging. It still works as a butter keeper and I'll still use it for that purpose, but I'm not happy with the quality of this product. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally found it Hard to find items is the Container Store's forte. I purchased several to give to family members as they had not been able to find a plastic butter dish elsewhere. If it's a hard to find product my go to store is here. March 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not What I Expected I purchased this butter keeper because I loved the measurements, conversion chart and the fact that it accommodates both sizes of butter sticks. My 10yr old grandson loves to cook with me and I thought this would be a wonderful way to help him learn measurements while baking. Unfortunately, I am going to return it because it seals so tightly that neither of us can open it easily and the butter flops around in there while we're trying to get it off. March 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by recommend Looked high and low all day for a plastic butter dish and finally found this one. Been great so far! March 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Butter Holding Device It holds butter. Washed it and the measurements did not come off. Did not scrub hard though. Merely sprayed with soap and water and rinsed. It's been a week or so and it's still holding butter. Only reason not 5 stars is because my husband confusedly put the bottom in upside down. In his defense, it did fit. Strange. February 25, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Holds Butter I loved it's design and thought the measurements would help me a great deal......BUT the FIRST time I washed it, by hand not dishwasher it just washed off. So as a butter dish it works great just do not expect the measurement markings to last. January 18, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Markings came off I liked it until the first time I washed it. I washed it top rack but all the markings were liquid and just wiped off. Does not fit Kerrygold butter. January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very handy When I saw the butter dish, I thought it would be useful because of the measuring guide on it. I didn't know how useful it is! The guide is used almost daily. It is a quick and easy way to measure butter. November 3, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just what I wanted This is well made and fairly airtight..meets expectations. September 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by REALLY A NICE ITEM I purchased 1 of the butter keeper and 3 of the butter fresh containers. I love the way you can place a stick of butter and slice the amount you need for cooking, baking,or just to spread on bread. Easy to use and keep clean. August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It! Great little container to keep your butter clean, fresh and neat. Even my husband is a fan of it. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this butter keeper I purchased this butter keeper as my daughter-in-law has one and I loved it. She is very cautious about chemicals, etc. and would not continue to use the container if the blue was washing off of hers. I know hers is washed in the dishwasher frequently and so far no problems. I am looking forward to the same outcome as I use this butter keeper. December 2, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good, but has drawbacks This is the second one of these I've purchased. Now I can wash one and use one. However, I also have concerns like one of the other reviewers about the blue markings coming off. I usually wash it by hand. I find the markings a bit confusing. I assume the narrower lines are supposed to be for a larger stick, but the only larger sticks I know of are the width of two single sticks, so the narrower lines should be exactly half the width of the wider ones to be the same tablespoon, but they are not. I like that it's plastic and has a fitting lid, although the seal does loosen over time, so don't pick it up by the lid. It's good for my elderly mom who lives with us because it isn't heavy and isn't glass that could break. It would also be good for households with children, for the same reason. October 27, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by the blue chart is not permanent I was so happy to find this butter keeper; however, it has not lived up to its great expectations, per the other reviews. I mostly washed it by hand and occasionally on the top rack of the dishwasher. I've owned this for about 6 months. In this short time, the blue measurement chart has all but disappeared from the base. How can that be safe for food? Are the other butter keeper reviewers' measurements still visible? A secondary minor issue is that the base needs to have a lip so that softened butter doesn't slide off. August 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by BUY IT Where do I begin? Holds more than 1 stick of butter, can fit the larger sticks of butter, air-tight seal, measuring marks, dishwasher safe...just buy it already, ok?! May 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! I love love love this butter keeper. Through the years I've had many butter dishes / keepers but I think this is the best one I've had. Very well made and thought out. Provides a nice tight seal to keep butter fresh and prevent from picking up odors. I especially love the Tbs markings, which are handy for baking / cooking. March 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product This is easy to use and easy to clean. It's so much better than trying to keep the butter wrapped up in the paper it comes in like I used to do. March 19, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid butter storage! Gone are the days of the metal of glass butter keepers of the 50s, but here comes the newest member of the butter keeper family. I really like the measurement markings. I rarely need teaspoons, but the tablespoons are great. December 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great just what I wanted I wanted a butter dish I could keep on the counter so my butter was spreadable. This is great because it also has the marks for measurements. Butter doesn't need to be kept refrigerated. I just wanted one with a cover. June 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very handy I love that it has measurement markings both for American stick butter and the European 'block' shape. Perfect for keeping out on the counter. April 24, 2011
