So, who's in the right? Well, according to food safety expert Carol Schlitt, butter at room temperature (around 70°F) will go bad in a few days, but keep it in an airtight container, and it should be good for up to two weeks.

So, either invest in a good butter keeper, or learn to make do with cold butter.

  1. How do you store your butter?

    In the fridge.

    Out on the counter, but only during the colder months.
