Versatile pieces in signature glazes, the Emile Henry collection has been handcrafted in France since 1850. Prized for its gradual, even heat distribution and ability to withstand rigorous temperature changes, Emile Henry goes from freezer to oven to tablevoila!
Emile Henry butter pots are the perfect addition to your breakfast table or afternoon tea. This glazed ceramic French beurrier is a time-tested design, and keeps your butter fresh, cool and spreadable up to 30 days thanks to a reservoir of cold water that you replenish every few days (the water creates an airtight seal). It holds 8 oz. (one cup) of butter, plenty to satisfy the whole family at mealtimes. No more rock-hard pats of butter when your toast or rolls are ready! Like other Emile Henry ceramics, this is sturdy (it resists chips and cracks) and pleasing to the eye, with a rich blue glaze (it is also available in other colors) and a 10-year warranty

Plus, it looks great left out on your table or countertop. It may seem pricey, but Emile Henry (made in France) is well worth the investment and far superior in workmanship than the cheaper made-in-China imposters
Is this easy to open and close? The Le Creuset butter pot has more of a ""knob"" on top to pull it open
It is so much easier to see and feel a product in Brick and Mortar stores!

Best Answer:Yes, although the Emile Henry butter pot does not have a knob like the Le Creuset, the top is tapered (it looks a bit like a flattened top hat from the side); you simply pick up the whole top and lift up. The edges of the lid also extend out over the butter pot, so you don't need to worry that it is difficult to open and close. (I have several in different colors and use them for different spiced butters
Given the fact that you overturn the lid and probably hold the cup/lid on the table to scoop out the butter, I wonder if the flatter top (rather than a knob) would be steadier (as it sets on the table) when removing the butter to use? In the pictures, the Emile Henry lid sits flat on the table whereas the others with knobs do not. I will know once I receive the pot in the mail
