Best Butter Warmers in 2020



Winco 207 Stainless Steel Soup Warmer, 7-Quart, Medium Review:


Very pleased with this purchase. The size was perfect. Served matzo ball soup for 12 with soup left over. Originally considered getting a soup tureen but this soup warmer allowed me to set up table early and kept soup very hot throughout the evening. Cleanup was easy. Much better than electric warmers that require a nearby outlet. This item is worth the investment and will, I am sure, give me many years of use. Going to try stew next.



IMEEA (17oz/500ml) Heavy Duty 18/10 Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Butter Warmer Pan with Dual Pour Spouts, 0.5-Quart Review:


When I received this, I was worried that it wouldn't be induction compatible as advertised because the bottom doesn't have the markings that any other induction pots and pans I've seen. But it works just fine with my induction cooker. I love the dual-lipped edge too. Even though I'm right-handed, all my other pots have the lipped edge opposite of where I need it (I guess I'm opposite of most people when it comes to pouring). This would be a perfect pot if it included a lid, but I won't knock off a star for that since I already knew it wouldn't come with it. I just use a foil to cover it, and maybe that's a blessing because an actual lid would have just taken up more space, which is important to me, living in a studio. Another space-saving feature with this is the hole in the handle, allowing me to hang it on the wall. Another surprising feature I found is that I had no issues with food sticking to the bottom that I had with my cheap "non-stick" pans! I had made Ramen Noodles with this but before boiling the water, I fried some chopped veggies in it with a little oil because I don't have a small frying pan. No issues with any food sticking to the bottom.



Artestia Ceramic Butter Warmer Set for Seafood (2, black) Review:


I got this quickly and used for the 1st time this past weekend at a crab feed I went to. This set is really nice and like the tools that came with with it (cracker and the picks). I also got these in black instead of the traditional white. The bowls are actually bigger then the standard size (and white ones you typically see). So that was a nice surprise when I took them out of the box and when I set them up at the crab feed and mine were a bigger than everyone elses! They wanted the larger ones like mine. :) Great addition to my kitchenware and crab feed accessories!



Farberware Classic Stainless Steel 0.625-Quart Butter Warmer - 70369 Review:


I love this stainless cooker and can see myself using this for years to come. I heat butter (for popcorn, mashed potatoes, multitude of other recipes), milk mainly for my coffee, and chocolate (to dip strawberries/fruit, add to my coffee, pour over popcorn, etc.). I used to use just a small pan but would always end up overcooking and burning since I would have to continuously stir. This pan gives me some leeway as I can walk away for a minute or two and then come back to a perfectly heated or melted product. It takes the place of using a double cooker with water underneath, that you still need to stir constantly anyway. So far this pan has helped me immensely in the kitchen since I can do other things than just stare and stir. I used this handheld frother after heating up my milk: DELUXE STAINLESS STEEL MILK FROTHER - Best One Touch Handheld Milk Frother - Coffee Latte & Cappuccino - Perfect Creamy Milk In Seconds - Portable For Easy Travel Use - All Stainless Steel Construction - FULL Peace Of Mind Guarantee. I plan to buy a couple more so I can heat up more than one thing at a time.



Prepworks by Progressive Ceramic Butter Warmer Fondue Set Review:


I bought these when I decided to do crabs legs and other seafood for my son's surprise 30th birthday party. A friend of his was going to do all the cooking for me and I looked at my collection of little bowls and decided I needed to do something different for melted butter. I ordered several of these; they come 2 to a box, I put one between every two people and everyone was so happy to have warm melted butter at the ready. I could add little pats if needed and they melted right away. I plan to buy more to give to the friend and his wife as I know they love seafood as well. I picked up an inexpensive bag of tea lights at my dollar store and I still have many left over for the next time.



ALL-CLAD 42006 D3 Stainless 0.5 Qt. Butter Warmer w/ Pour Lip, Silver Review:


I bought this little pot to make a cup of hot chocolate on those cool mornings. It’s perfect for that. Heavy duty, durable, easy to clean and store (I hang it on a magnetic hook on the side of the fridge when not in use). If it came with a lid, I would like it better, but the milk heats quickly and I watch it while heating anyway to make sure there is no boil over. A lid would just help with that bit of stuff that can build up on uncovered milk that is being heated. Great for reheating a small single serving of about anything, besides milk, which is where a lid could be useful to hold in moisture.



IMEEA Butter Coffee Milk Warmer Mini Butter Melting Pot with Spout 18/10 Tri-Ply Stainless Steel (12oz/370ml) Review:


I got this for heating cream, milk & butter. The main reason I chose this pot over the competing products was because of the laminated bottom (layer of aluminum between layers of heavy, quality stainless steel) which allows the contents to heat more evenly without burning. A cheaper pot could burn the contents at the bottom while the upper surface was still cold. The laminated bottom also keeps the pot and its contents hot longer after it is removed from the burner.

The size is good for heating just a few ounces or up to 1 1/2 cups. The shape is perfect with the top diameter smaller than the bottom which optimizes the contact area for heating while the smaller top minimizes escape of steam and heat from the contents.

The long steel handle works well with the pots weight. It is well balanced and gives a good feeling of quality and control when handling the pot and pouring from it.



HIC Turkish Coffee Warmer and Butter Melting Pot, Stainless Steel, 12-Ounce Capacity Review:


My husband and I love coffee. I mean, LOVE coffee. We have almost every type of machine and gadget and even our own bean roaster. I own electric frothers, cheap frothers and expensive. THIS is our new favorite. It is easy to use, easy to clean. We bought two and the newer one is designed even better (it has a little rubber piece on the stem to help make it quieter when pumping). I swear we can make awesome drinks just as good, if not better than coffee shops! My procedure...

1. Get microwave safe mug and put about .5 cup milk in microwave for 45 second sto 1 minute.
2. Immediately add milk to frother and pump handle a out 50 times (it is done at 20 pumps but I love foam). I pumped to 100 once and practically made whipped cream. Hahaha
3. Pour frothy goodness back into same mug that went into microwave.
4. Turn on my nespresso and brew a lungo shot in the mug. While brewing shot, I take frother to the sink, add water and pump up and down a few times to clean...put in dish rack until next time. Cleaning takes seconds and I'm still waiting for my shot to finish brewing.
5. Enjoy my drink even more knowing I didn't spend 5 bucks on my delicious latte!

I also use this milk frother to whip up great hot chocolate for my daughter.



Norpro 210 Ceramic Butter Warmers, Set of 2, 1/3 cup/3 oz, White Review:


The candle stand is a little bit tinney... sturdy enough, but will clash with your best china and sterling silver (more suited for everyday table settings and/or a 3 star restaurant vs a 4 or 5 star restaurant). My bad choice on the warmer with the little handles, they are a little awkward. Not that they are designed badly, just "what looks neat isn't always efficient or needed"... they are cumbersome and can easily result in spilt butter. Stick with a straight up butter cup unless you are just interest is something that just looks cute.

I still gave the product a 4 star rating... they do work and I haven't spilled any butter yet but plan on replacing them. Maybe use them for candle holders at Christmas.

Keep the candle wicks trimmed... a long wick produces a "boiling butter" effect. I think this is true with all butter warmers.



Dansk Kobenstyle Butter Warmer, White , Small - 833884 Review:


Very nice baker! I'm so happy that they've re-released the Dansk Kobenstyle line and have been picking up pieces (both new and vintage) as I can. This baker heats evenly and cleanup is simple because of the enameled coating. This is a pretty large baking dish, suitable for a big casserole or mac and cheese for a family of 6. It does tend to chip along the edges if it's not handled carefully, but that's not something I bother with, as I like the vintage look the occasional chip gives off. Highly recommended.
