Of course I clicked "Buy now."
No, I did not read the fine print. It's a freaking butter dish, right?
Then the UPS guy brought it to my front door a week later and I tore into the box, delighted with my five new knobs and perplexed by the butter dish.
That, friends, is my new butter dish. Next to the butter dish is a stick of butter. In Wisconsin all butter comes packaged in sticks measuring a half-cup each. I've never seen it any other size or shape--except packaged as a whole pound block.
See how the butter is way too big for the butter dish?
Why would you design a butter dish perfectly sized for a half stick of butter?
And yet they did:
DETAILSOne pat or two? This festive stoneware container holds a half-stick of butter beneath its lid.
- Dishwasher and microwave safe
- 2.5"H, 6"W, 4"D
Had I bothered to read the fine print and not made my decision based solely on the picture, I wouldn't be stuck with this ridiculous version of a butter dish.
Half stick indeed. A pox on you, Anthropologie, and all of your silly proportions. Us real girls need actual sized kitchenware, not the diet-sized crap. (Or spinster-sized, come to think of it--this would be perfect for my grandma...)
