I love the taste of real butter and I think of it as a real treat and hold it back usually for my morning toast. I already owned a butter dish which I was happy enough with however my Mum recently was having a clear out and offered me this one from Lakeland and finding out that its meant to be kept out whilst stopping the butter from melting in the kitchen but leaving it easy to spread and the fact that this retails in Lakeland for £18.99 I decided that I simply had to save it from the bin and given it a go.
Style wise this is rather nice but simple in concept. Its made from a satin effect silver stainless steal and is a nice deep square in shape tub with a lid with a little handle to it and its all rounded at the edges making it look really nice and it measures 12 x 8 x 5cm H. (4¾" x 3¼" x 2") and can hold a 250g block of butter which is bigger that the block I usually treat myself to so mine fits in, in one block easily.
This is called double insulated and it really does mean I can leave my block of butter out and in this instead of it going hard in the fridge and unspreadable, this also means it doesn't melt in really warm weather or situated near my cooker and the likes and my butter is always ready to be used plus a bonus is this is a nice looking item and quite classy looking too.
Yep £18.99 is pricey for a butter dish but it is the ideal solution to being able to have butter on hand and I think it is actually worth its high price tag for what it gives back and it gets the thumbs up from me and it has been a great little find!
Google if interested.
Let me start by saying I love the taste of real butter, I know it's not good for you but I love it and I just can't get away with low fat spreads or even spreadable butter. For me it has to be the real thing.
Although I love the taste of real butter what I don't like is the fact that it can be so hard to spread. So when I saw this neat little butter dish from Lakeland I thought it could be just the thing for me.
The insulated butter dish from Lakeland is a satin finished brushed steal insulated butter dish, it has been designed to keep butter at a cool but spreadable temperature. The butter dish is quite nice to look at it, it is quite a traditional shape but with nicely curved edges with a removable lid which has a simple arch shaped handle on top. The size of the dish is exactly the size required for holding standard blocks of butter. The dish is priced at £14.99 and available from Lakeland stores or can be purchased online from www.lakeland.com.
I at first wrongly believed that the dish was designed to be kept in the fridge which is exactly what I did. This resulted in rock hard and unspreadable butter. When it finally dawned on my that the butter dish is actually meant to be kept on kitchen bench or in kitchen cupboard I had much more success with it. When used this way the butter is usually kept at a nice temperature and is really easy to spread. No longer did I end up taking big chunks out of my bread when trying to spread the butter. I did find however that on the hottest days over the summer it was still a bit too soft. But with good old British summers its not like this is a problem most of the time.
I think this is a relatively good product, quite stylish to look at and it does its job well 90% of the time. It is only on the warmest of summer days it proves to be not quite up to the job. If you are a real butter lover it may well be worth investing in one of these, it certainly makes the spreading of your butter much easier.
