One of my favorite items that I brought back from my travels this year, is my Le Creuset Butter Keeper (sometimes also known as a butter bell). As far as I know, it’s not available in Taiwan, so it’s definitely an object of curiosity in my kitchen.
According to the Crate and Barrel’s website, butter keepers keep the butter soft, but not melted. This is accomplished by a bit of water at the bottom of the container, which helps to keeps the butter cool.
這次從美國回來帶了一個 Le Creuset 奶油皿～ 這個奶油皿特別的地方， 是可以讓奶油保持剛剛好 spreadable 的狀態！ 神奇的地方，奶油不放冰箱也不會酸掉。 這是怎麼辦到的，其實我也不太會用中文解釋～所以就只能讓圖片說故事了！
