My Butter Ball!

Okay.. it isn't really called a "butter ball" (isn't that like a little chubby kid??) I think it is called a Butter Bell. Anyway, I discovered something that I thought you people would love too! Okay so my mother-in-law has one of these and I didn't really see the benefit until I was constantly ripping apart my bread while I tried spreading frozen butter on it AND I think leaving butter on a plate on your counter is disgusting. (Sorry if you do it, I just think about all the dust and things flying in the air that are attaching to it and it makes me want to vomit!) Sooo.. I present to you a Butter Bell!

Take your Butter Bell (I found mine here which is a store at Gateway Mall) and your thawed butter.

Squish as much butter as you can into the Butter Bell hole!

Fill the bowl with 2" of COLD water.. this keeps it from spoiling. Switch out the water every 3-4 days and you can store your butter in it for 30 days before it spoils! :)

It is always at a spreadable consistency! Ooh.. just looking at this makes me happy!

Now the real test..

I'd say she likes it! :)

Yes, you may think I am weird for posting about a kitchen gadget that I love.. but really, it is awesome and you all should get one. Plus, it looks cute sitting on your counter. I am coming back tomorrow to post an AMAZING recipe that you will all love. It will remind you of your childhood. I Promise.

AH! I've been wanting one of these but can't find it anywhere. Maybe I'll just have to order one online. Love the yellow!

BA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. You wrote this post JUST FOR ME, huh? Can you believe I have been using my butter bell (or butter bowl as I've been calling it) the wrong way for 3+ years!!! WOWSA. Thanks to you for being so s-m-r-t. Now (when I can eat it again) my butter will have the perfect consistency. =)

I just bought my mother in law one of these for Christmas! We couldn't find it anywhere, but finally found it at Spoon's and Spice (I think that's what it's called)) :)

so i have had one of these for a few years now and i must be dumb cuz i can't get it to work right. i don't even use it anymore-i gave up on it. the butter will either fall out or get rancid waaay earlier than the 30 days or whatever. do you keep changing the water out or something??
