My favorite ceramic butter dish: there is a slot for a butter knife (which is included) and if I need to wipe extra butter somewhere, I can wipe it on the side of the dish and it will not make a mess. Traditional butter dishes do not provide that option and I never know where to put the knife when I'm done.
Nice and compact. Easy to pick up with one hand. Fits a 1/4 lb stick of butter.
It can be washed in the dishwasher. There is the risk that over time, harsh dishwasher detergents may etch and dull the finish. It will not compromise the functionality of the piece. Washing by hand with hot water and dish soap is best.
Please contact me for pictures of current stock. Pick up is at Bentonville Public Library Cafe 211. M-F 9am-4pm.
