Kinto Butter Dish

Butter left exposed to the air in your refrigerator will turn sour quickly, picking up off flavors. And when we say quickly, we mean in just a few days. So, that is why folks have designed butter containers to keep the butter fresher longer. Unfortunately, most designs are either basic, bland or boring, or they require maintenance as in the designs that seal the upside-down butter container with water. (The latter eventually get moldy—believe us.) We wanted something simple and easy to clean. Say hello to this lovely Japanese porcelain and bamboo container, which seals tight enough to prevent your butter from absorbing off odors in the refrigerator. The angular, compact shape won’t command too much space on the shelf, and both the bamboo and porcelain are easy to wipe clean. Take your pick of crisp white or glossy black.
