Butter is everything to Ree Drummond: She loves to cook with it as much as she can (just take a look at these skillet biscuits with cinnamon-honey butter or her husband Ladd's grilled tenderloin recipe). It's no wonder she has come out with so many of the best butter dishes in The Pioneer Woman collection—after all, such an important ingredient deserves a worthy home!
That's why she keeps a stick at the ready in a butter dish! After all, how many times have you reached for softened butter only to find a rock-hard stick in the fridge? The solution: Keep a stick of butter (Ree loves the salted variety!) in a butter dish on your countertop at all times. (Yes, you can keep your butter out!) The best butter dishes give you something pretty to place right on the countertop and remind you of that stick of butter that's saying, "Cook with me again!" (Did we also mention they make a sweet kitchen gift?) Depending on your décor style, you could choose a butter dish with farmhouse vibes, a French-inspired crock, something vintage-looking, or a simple ceramic option. Many dinnerware sets and serving sets even come with a butter dish to match. Keep reading to find some of the prettiest (and most functional) butter dishes out there. Pick your favorite, then don't forget to add a big pat of butter to your next recipe!
