Oh-So-Soft Butter

Butter fanatics will appreciate the Trudeau Porcelain Butter Boat, which keeps the spread perpetually soft. The boat comes in three parts: the water reservoir, the boat and the lid. Fill the reservoir to the designated mark with water. Unwrap a stick of butter, place it in the boat and set the boat inside the reservoir. Then set the lid on top, leave the boat on the counter, and rejoice the next time you reach for butter and find it spreadable. How does it work? The porcelain keeps the water cool, and the water keeps the butter just cool enough to stay fresh without hardening. $19.99
