Functional but frail
I have never seen this sort of butter dish anywhere else so I am really glad to have found it. It uses science to help you preserve the freshness of your butter while giving you spread-ability. Excellent and simple idea. I love that it doesn't use extra mechanics but it uses simple science to make life better.

The less that 5 star rating is due to how fragile the ceramic is that the dish is made of. I purchased my first one on line and it arrived chipped. The day I brought the replacement home, I cracked the lid. I hope it lasts because I really really like to use it.
If the makers read this, I have one suggestion. Make the container square or rectangular to match the shape of the butter that we buy. It would make it much easier to fill the lid with our butter neatly.
Again, a great idea, still worth the money.
Butter "dish" is actually a butter "bell"
The reason this butter bell has the butter in the lid part is so you can fill the bottom part with cold water and a pinch of salt to keep your butter fresh and soft on the counter instead of the fridge where butter gets hard.

You just have to keep adding hard butter as you use it up so that there are no spaces between the butter and the water, so the butter stays fresh.
I love mine and I change the water when I add new hard butter.
Best ever butter bell I ever owned.
