What type of butter dish is best? Is it the ones with a flat bottom or a dish bottom, if that makes sense!

I've got a dish type but would prefer a flat bottom type.smile

I have a fat bottom but would prefer a dish. grin

notso Mon 13-May-13 13:53:16

blush while I do indeed have a fat bottom, my butter dish has a flat bottom!

notso Mon 13-May-13 13:56:05

Oh and the reason is that when you spread the butter the pat gets wider, especially in warmer weather and with a flat bottom one the butter gets too fat for the lid and it becomes messy.
It has just occured to me that I could turn mine upside down!

I've been looking in charity shops for a good butter dish for years. I found one when I was on holiday 2 years ago (niace French glass one), and promptly broke it!!

It's butter dish weather again & I am using a small shallow bowl with another bowl on top to cover!

I don't know what you mean by flat bottom/dish bottom?

Thanks all, I am sorry notso but I had to laugh at your fat bottom!
I have just broken the lid on my flat bottomed dish and am leaning towards a dish bottom now methinks.

grin lulu2 I've had the tune to Fat Bottomed Girls in my head since yesterday!
They are hard to find, my Mum has spend ages looking for one but she is most fussy.

BeCool mine is a naice French glass one, it was a present and I'm petrified of breaking it. I have turned it upside down now, it's a revelation!

Oh good grief, just as I clicked send I realised that post sounded like my Mum was looking for a fat bottomed girl grin grin

I really need to preview my posts!

I have a beeyootiful Le Creuset one, which was a gift.
I love it.

I love this yoyo ceramics butter dish, although I have the condiment pot and use it as a butter dish as it holds 1/3 of a pack of butter. Dish bottomed though.

Morrison's has a glass-with-cows-on flat bottomed butter dish for £3.

We have this one not from them but years ago in Woolies I think, not expensive. It lives in the bread bin all year round smile

I like a dish bottom, we have this. £5 from Sainsburys but often comes up on offers in stor for £3.

notso Tue 14-May-13 14:16:57

ItsAll I am now mostly wanting everything from that yoyo ceramics site!

ItsAllTLAsToMe Tue 14-May-13 21:13:12

Also have the matching tea pot, sugar bowl and cream jug smile

I love my butter dish, prefer the bone china to the more chunky porcelain ones.

Do like this too though

Hi Lake <waves> I have the JL Queensberry Hunt tea cups and saucers; used them today for an afternoon tea party! smile

SorrelForbes Sat 18-May-13 23:42:04

I have a nice plain white with a blue edge type from JL. (I did have a rather lovely La Creuset one but a friend kept coveting it so I gave it her as a gift! Netto was it you?

SorrelForbes Sat 18-May-13 23:43:14

FunnysInLaJardin Sat 18-May-13 23:43:32
