Let Your Butter Be Spreadable with The Original Butter Bell® crock (Review with Giveaway, Ends 04/17/14, US Only)

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
What's a Butter Bell® crock, you ask?  
A modern version of the original French butter crock, the Original Butter Bell® crock allows butter to be kept at room temperature, on the counter or tabletop, for up to 30 days without spoilage, refrigeration or odors. Made from New Bone China, the highest quality ceramics available, the Butter Bell crock insures that under reasonable, correct usage, butter storage time can be up to 30 days. Most Butter Bell users consume a crock’s worth of butter within one week.    

The unique design keeps butter at the perfect “spreading” consistency by reflecting outside heat while insulating and cooling the butter.  Flavor and freshness is protected by an airtight seal of water at the base of the crock.

The Butter Bell crock holds up to one full stick (1/2 cup) of butter.  Softened butter is packed firmly into the bell-shaped cup of the lid. Cold water is poured into the base of the crock. The lid is then placed upside down back into the base of the crock.  Soft, spreadable butter may be enjoyed and served right from the crock. Proper maintenance: Water should be changed out every three days.  Replace existing water in the base with fresh, cold water.

The Butter Bell crocks are 4 inches in height and 3.5 inches in diameter. We have multiple styles and several colors to choose from.
Butter Bell® crock is a brand name of butter crocks owned and distributed by L. Tremain. We are the brand leader and largest seller of butter crocks in the US, with many styles and colors to choose from. The product line was also recently featured on the Food Network on the show "Unwrapped" which is shown on our website - .
This is the Butter Bell Crock that we received.
We ONLY use grassfed butter. While you can purchase spreadable butter, it is mixed with oil, so it isn't pure butter. PLEASE avoid purchasing margarine!! For more information about butter consumption, please read this trusted source - Dr. Mercola's Butter Consumption Reaches a 40 year High article.
The instructions for setting up your Butter Bell® crock are on the back of the box. Yay for minimal packaging!
I used about 2/3 of a package of butter to fill the crock.
Yum. I love that dark yellow color!
I measured out the water for the canister.
And put the bell crock inside.
This is how much butter remained after filling the crock. It holds a lot of butter!!
We love to make air popped popcorn.
But it seems like it takes FOREVER to melt the butter fresh from the fridge...well beyond the time frame it takes to finish popping the popcorn. And I don't know about you, but I like to eat my popcorn HOT!
Using the soft butter from the Butter Bell® crock made it SO much easier!! The butter actually finished melting BEFORE the popcorn finished popping so we were able to blend the butter while it popped!
And I noticed that we were able to use much LESS butter than normal...and I love my popcorn slathered in butter!!!
The other thing that I like about my Butter Bell® crock is that our family is able to have the crock for me to use for gluten free purposes and a separate container for the rest of the family to use.
Butter Bell® crock is having a Mother's Day Special Offer - For every two Butter Bell crocks that you purchase, you get a free crock. The specific offer details are available on their website. The offer runs from April 2nd through May 15th 2014.
