No one likes to try to spread cold butter. Here's a solution to that problem. Butter crocks have been in use in parts of Europe dating back to the Middle Ages, long before reliable refrigeration was available. These airtight ceramic vessels prevented butter from spoiling while keeping it at a reasonable temperature. The stoneware butter crock is inspired by classic crock designs, blocking out air that can ruin butter, while approximating room temperature to keep the butter soft without melting. Limited 5 Year Warranty. Le Creuset item number PG0200-0916.
Protected by a hard-wearing glaze that resists damage from heat and utensils, Le Creuset stoneware is perfectly suited to baking pies, quiches, casseroles and more. The secret to its performance is the even-heating properties, which prevent hot-spots and cook foods in a uniform fashion. The result is a golden brown crust with fully cooked ingredients throughout. The enamel finish is smooth and easily releases food, making cleanup a breeze. Le Creuset Stoneware is safe for the oven, broiler, and microwave. Because it is impermeable to stains and odors, it is also perfect for storing foods in the refrigerator or the freezer.

BROILER: When using under a broiler allow a gap of no less than 2 ½ inches between the rim of the dish and the heat source.
MICROWAVE: Handles may become hot during prolonged microwave use, especially if the handles are enclosed with plastic wrap. Cover just the open top of the dish, leaving the handles exposed.
FREEZER-TO-OVEN USE: Do not place a frozen dish of food in a preheated oven. Place the frozen dish in a cold oven and set the temperature, allowing the dish and oven to heat together. Before serving always check that the center of the food is completely and uniformly hot.
CLEANING: Before the first use, wash the dish in hot, soapy water, and rinse and dry thoroughly. For most day-to-day cleaning, cool the dish for a few minutes before washing and drying, or wash in the dishwasher, allowing the full cycle to complete. Never leave a dish fully immersed in water. For removal of stubborn residues allow the dish to cool, fill with warm, soapy water and allow it to soak for 10 to 20 minutes.
