How do French Butter Dishes keep butter fresh?
The french butter dish works to keep butter fresh by separating the butter from air. French butter dishes often create an air/water barrier that prevents air from turning the butter rancid. Holes are often present in the lids of french butter dishes in order to evacuate as much air from the butter chamber as possible. Some fans of french butter dishes advocate using salt water, rather than fresh water, to increase effectiveness and to prevent mold. Usage of french butter dishes is not without maintenance, however; a change in the water is suggested at least every week. However, extremely fresh-minded french butter dish fans suggest changing the water every one to three days!
