As eternal devotees of room temperature butter we love a good butter dish. This one, though, goes the extra mile: add a little heat to the enamel coated steel tray and you have yourself a perfect melted butter dipper for lobster, artichokes, or corn on the cob. We may have even inverted the lid once or twice to catch spent artichoke leaves. 3" wide x 8" long x 4" high (with lid), easily holds a single stick of classic US butter or larger imported slabs like Lurpak or Kerrygold.

Enamelware is metal—not ceramic, so don't put it in the microwave!—made from steel fused with melted glass and fired at exceptionally high temperatures to achieve its signature glossy-hard finish. This process makes it easy to clean, rust-averse, safe to use in the oven, dishwasher, or freezer, and long lasting. There's a reason your grandmother still has hers. Like many centuries-old techniques, the hand-dipped coating + hand-painted details can present subtle variations in each piece. We think they're charming, and, never fear, these "imperfections" won't affect use.

Take Care: While it can withstand extreme temperatures and a host of other abuses (looking at you: camping with children) enamel's kryptonite is its vitreous coating. Don't bang it with a spoon or drop it like it's hot (even if it's hot!) or it can chip.
