We've definitely all been there. It's bright and early, and a fresh piece of toast pops right out of the toaster. But when you go to slap some butter on it, the spread is cold, hard, and, er, unspreadable, leaving you with a raggedy piece of toast.

The problem with leaving your butter out on a dish at room temperature to stay soft is that it only stays fresh for one to two days. Luckily, the Dowan Butter Keeper not only ensures your butter stays smooth and soft on the counter, but it'll also keep it fresh for up to 30 days. That's one whole month of easier mornings.

Called a butter keeper, or a butter bell, the tool is designed to keep butter soft without spoiling too fast. It comes with a crock and a bell shaped lid. Though small at just 3.5 inches tall and 4 inches wide, Dowan has made its butter keeper — which is on sale for up to 28% off — easy to use with enough room to fit more butter than other butter keepers, reviewers say. Plus, it comes in many different colors like white for a classic look, red, blue, gray, or even turquoise for a beachy touch.

To use it, you simply fill the crock with cold water up to the indicated marking, place softened butter into the bell of the lid, and pack it down until it's flush. Then, you just place the lid on top of the crock and it's good to keep out at room temperature on the counter for spreadable butter. The water creates a seal to keep the butter fresh, so you'll want to refill the water every few days.

As if its butter saving capacities weren't enough, this butter keeper has gotten some of its praise from its stylish look too, landing itself in TikTok videos (like this one about products you won't regret buying) with millions of views. It also has over 8,000 five-star ratings on Amazon. "I've used every kind of butter dish and hated them," a shopper wrote. "I found this on TikTok and had to get it! You can't go wrong.".

"This is a must-buy if you use real butter," another reviewer said, adding, "It works and looks great on your counter. Most of all, it is much cleaner than a butter dish. The butter also stays fresher."

"I love how cute this is and how easy it is to clean," one person pointed out, especially since it's dishwasher-safe.

With a design that is functional and cute, you can say goodbye to hard, difficult-to-spread butter by snapping up the Dowan Butter Keeper while select colors are on sale now for just $14.
