The Le Creuset Stoneware French Butter Dish in White will add a touch of color to your breakfast or dinner table. Also called a French Butter Crock, the dish will keep about 12 tablespoons of fresh spreadable butter on your countertop for 3 to 5 days. The secret to the bell-shaped butter crock is in a seal created by water. Simply add water to the crock and butter stored in the inverted bell will be sealed away from the harmful effects of room temperature air. Just change the water to keep your butter fresh and enjoyable. It's a butter dish with water! Le Creuset stoneware offers the ultimate in versatility and durability. It can bake in an oven up to 500 degrees F, go in the microwave or under the broiler. It can also go from the freezer into a cold oven so stoneware, food, and oven heat up together. The virtually non-porous stoneware is fired at 2156 degrees F, giving it unmatched strength and durability, making it resistant to chipping, cracking and staining. The enameled surface makes it easy to clean and resists scratching. For more than 80 years, Le Creuset has been an inspiration to professional chefs and home cooks alike.
