    "Great product. I wish it was made in the USA but then the ones I have seen which are cost at least 2 to 3 times as much. Actually I have seen this very one for twice the price elsewhere. As for the crock itself it works beautifully. I love butter but hate trying to chisel it off the stick to use on toast, bagels, English muffins, etc. With this little bowl I always have smooth creamy spreadable butter & the added bonus of sitting it upright on the table to serve with dinner. I change my water every time I use it just so I will not forget. I use it almost daily. Thank you Lehman's for providing this at a very reasonable price."

    "I like the butter crock, but it seems to need to have a bigger top because when it is turned over for use, it tips very easily. It does preserve the butter very well. I am happy with it."

    "I purchased a "butter bell' from Lehman's a number of years ago and have been very pleased with it. In April I ordered one for my daughter's birthday. When I saw it at her house I was disappointed to see that the glazing was not complete on the top. Lehman's promptly sent out another one, but when it arrived it had the same defect. They are refunding my money, which I appreciate. I hope that they are checking the remaining crocks in that lot for the same imperfection."

    "I gave this as a gift to our Thanksgiving hostess along with the blue syrup pitcher which matched wonderfully and was well recieved. I could give only a rating of 4 because the crock did arrive chipped."

    "In generations past the common way to present butter for table use was to put a lump of butter in a bowl of water with a stone on top of it to keep it from floating (butter is 80% butterfat). Keeping the butter under water kept the butter from oxidizing from the oxygen in the air. A modern version of this is to use this Butter Crock. My family has used this for years. The water in the crock creates a hydraulic barrier that does not allow oxygen to get to the butter thus keeping it fresh. Here is a hint: when you fill the crock about 1/3 with water put a couple of shakes of salt in it. Salt is a great preservative. We change the water every 3-5 days. Butter is always room temp and ready to spread and as fresh as it was when it came out of the wrapper. "

    "I can say enough about this butter crock. It does exactly what the description says it will do. Real butter spreadable so it doesnt rip up the bread when you spread it. The water in the bottom does get kind of messy but it's still well worth the money. I say ditch the margarine and use the real deal. I also have to say that the staff at lehmans were great with packing my order and shipped it very quickly . You guys are great and you will always have my business as long as you stay non electric and hard find type store. I definitely will buy more of these butter crocks a must have here in Arizona."

    "We love this butter crock so far! It keeps the butter spreadable, which is a welcome change for my husband, who grew up with tub margarine (an absolute no-no in our house). This has been a welcome change after many years of grumbling. Thanks, Lehman's!"

It's so nice to have spreadable butter at hand for instant use (and not a "combo" that's "blended" for "spreadability"). I'm VERY pleased!"
