Hi,I have a security guard who works for me & I let him use the kitchen in my office. He doesn't make a mess and I have no complaints about the guy. I noticed that he keeps a stick of butter in the cupboards & not the fridge. Is this common? I keep my butter in the fridge. Always have. Are there any other cupboard butter dudes out there?peaceh

  • I always thought it was supposed to go in the fridge, but wifey keeps it in one of those "butter dish" things on the counter. It is nice to have nice spreadable butter at the ready whenever you need it, for whatever you need it for. It hasn't made me sick yet.

    if you keep it outside of the fridge it spreads much easier, but I guess it doesnt preserve as long. Although, I've never seen mouldly butter, anyone?

    I hate that too. I also refrigerate peanut butter. The only thing I'll keep in the cupboard is canned & dry goods.

    i grew up with cold ketchup, cold or not at all. maybe it's an usny thing. haha.


    I think butter is straight for a long time at room temperature. I found this though:

    "To prevent a type of spoilage called rancidity, protect butter from heat, light and air. Rancid butter has an unpleasant taste and smell. To prevent rancidity, never store butter at room temperature. For ease in spreading, remove butter from the refrigerator 10 to 15 minutes before using it."

    Although I have never seen butter go bad. I think most people use it before it goes bad. I tend to use it more when it is left out because, as everybody else mentioned, it's easier to use, so it gets used.

  • get a dish. put the cover on. and leave it on the coutner; you'll be much happier.

    I keep it in tupperware on the counter, it does go bad eventually but it's almost always used up before it gets to that point.

    Cold Butter =

    Ketchup/Mustard in the fridge.
    Peanut Butter in the cupboard.
    Soy Sauce cupboard.
    Hot Sauce cupboard.

    Fridge or Cabinet?

    I keep my butter in the fridge. Hot toast + cold butter = excellent spreading.

    I won't use "Real headz know the deal" graemlin.

    I say Fridge. I like my syrup to have a thicker consistency so it's not as runny when I put it on my waffles/pancakes/french toast.

    Also, I'm a self-guilting fan of processed, flavoured maple syrup. I enjoy pure maple syrup, and have even had it straight from a maple farm. But I still enjoy me some butter flavoured Aunt Jemimah more. And sometimes I feel guilty about it.


    On the butter tip... I'm a low salt margerine man. And I keep it in the fridge. It's easier to spread at cooler temperatures, and healthier. The only thing I need real butter for is corn on the cob.

    Indeed. Add marmite to that equation and you have pleasure unparalleled.

    Alternatively........

  • mustard and ketchup has more flavor un-refridgerated, butter in the butter dish, makes it smoove, I hate hard butter. I knew someone who freaked at un-refridgerated butter, thought it would make him sick. All I had to remind him was..."uhhh, folks ate butter for a long long time before the ice box was invented". He just said "Oh, yeah"

    as a lactose intolerant celiac, i'm extremely offended by all this "bread and butter" talk.

    you know there are other ways to lubricate and add fat to your starch.

    I got pissed at never being able to spread butter on bread without destroying the bread when I kept it in the fridge. So now I refuse to use butter at all & only use margarine/spread. So much more convenient.

    This should make all of us happy:



    Spreadable butter, son. You can keep it cold AND it spreads without tearing the bread.

    Yeah I tried that too, but it still came out of the fridge hard as rocks, granted, once out it does soften quicker, but who wants to mess around when you are making your lunch in the morning & already running late for work. Spread fixes everything.

    If health reasons have something to do with it, I hope you're being choosy about your spread... a lot of the regular margarines/spreads are TERRIBLE for you...

    Butter = Cupboard
    Ketchup = Cupboard
    Hotsause = Cupboard

    In the case of mustard however,

    If you squeeze it, it can[/b] go in the cupboard



    If you spread it, its a fridge only[/b] affair

    My girl saw this clip on the Food Network, and she copped a butter bell. Now we got soft butter that keeps for a few weeks:
