Jonathan Adler Dachshund Butter Dish
Perfect visually, less functional
I have spent years picking out the perfect butter dish (yes, I'm picky) and finally settled on this one. I loved it and received it as a gift, since I would never spend that kind of money on a butter dish. It is totally adorable, but the top falls off all the time. The two pieces do not fit well together. Also, I have to cut my butter in half lengthwise and only use one half or the lid doesn't close. I love having this displayed in my kitchen but am disappointed in the functionality considering the price. I don't want to tell the people who gave it to me because it makes me feel like I asked for something expensive and now don't appreciate it.
While I admit the price is a bit much for a butter dish, it's hard to find a quality, unique one out there. I was overall very pleased, it fits the butter just fine and is obviously made of quality materials. You're paying for a name, clearly, but it's kind of expected from Jonathan Adler. Great purchase!
Not Worth the Money
Not even in the name of art, is this butter dish worth its high price. Besides being attractive, I wanted this butter dish to be functional, but its excessive weight and ill fit make it completely unusable.
