Temp-tations Old World Basketweave Butter Jar is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Top did not even fit into the bottom correctly. I know how to use these butter bells and I fell in love with the design that matches the rest of my Temptations pieces so I purchased it. The outside design is really lovely. I unpacked the two pieces and placed the lid into the container and it did not fit correctly and when the pieces finally settled into each other, they got stuck together and I could not separate no matter what I tried. Finally after an hour of struggling and twisting them they came apart. I thought I must have done something wrong and tried to place them back together again, and it was quite a challenge and when they did get back together again, I could not separate them at all, not even after hours of trying. RETURNED this with the two pieces still stuck together.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design I would not have gone on to write this except for the fact I got an e mail asking me to. I agree with the other reviews that there aren't instructions as to how this should be used. I figured it out, from the other reviews; however, the butter keeps falling out of the holder. This is a defective design and I am returning it. Very disappointed as I was looking for a butter jar not a butter plate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's not what you think. Useless. I expected to open the lid and put my butter in. After googling what I was seeing I found that this is a method of storing butter upside down in a cup that's attached to the lid (look at QVC provided photos) and then after having added water to the base the butter is sealed off from air. I get the premise. I do not however enjoy buying what's labeled a butter dish and then finding out Its the way some Europeans store butter. It's nothing more than a matching piece of Temp-tations now. Completely useless. More of an headache to return. Please fix the directions for this items. It mentions none of this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I have been looking for I have been searching for one of these for more than a year since I broke my last one. So thrilled to find this in Temptations and in the color I collect (Old World Green.) In response to one reviewer not familiar with the concept...this holds softened butter in the inverted cup on the inside of the lid. You fill the bottom with a little water and put the lid on. The water rises to meet the butter and keeps it fresh and soft. This is particularly helpful in the summer when I want to keep butter at room temperature but unfortunately without air conditioning that temperature melts the butter and the butter dish is a sloppy mess! I change the water every day to insure freshness and make sure the water level is high enough to meet the butter...about an inch of water or so depending on how much butter is in the inverted cup. It might be nice to include a video on the website so people will know how to use it. It's an idea that has been around a very long time, but not all that common. Personally, for me this is the perfect way to keep butter at the perfect temperature to spread without compromising freshness or having a messy butter keeper. If you give it a try I think you will be hooked. Temptations, please bring in more!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice, but?? This butter dish is nice, but I don’t understand how to keep the butter in it without falling out. I do not understand the concept at all!! It should come with some instructions to help understand why they have the cup upside down. Now I have a container with butter on the bottom, an upside down cup and a big mess!!
