A few weeks ago, a jury of 39 design experts from around the world met in Germany to judge more than 5’500 product innovations from 54 countries. After careful evaluation, the jury paid tribute to Churncraft’s design with the coveted Red Dot distinction. The Churncraft butter churn will be exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, along with the other winners.

Churncraft has created a lovely, functional product that blends old world design with a sleek, contemporary aesthetic. Winning the Red Dot product design award is a professional validation of something we thought all along - our little butter churn is a thing of beauty.

Embodying the philosophy of mindfulness, the modern butter churn revives the forgotten art of making butter by hand, thus updating an American legacy for the contemporary kitchen. It’s a delightful experience to share with family and friends.

The churn represents our American heritage and a deep commitment to the future of food. We wanted to build a bridge from the past to the future, so integrity of design was essential—compelling shapes, solid engineering and honest materials.

The churn features a four quart glass jar, topped by a strikingly elegant arc handle that contains a gear mechanism inside a transparent dome. The manual power train uses a solid handgrip of American hardwood, stainless steel shafts, and precision gears from Germany. A highly efficient wave paddle spins inside the glass jar to churn the cream into butter. The paddle is removable for easy cleaning. The churn is assembled by hand from custom-designed, industrial-quality parts in Churncraft’s workshop in Connecticut.

For the third installment of our Chef Series, I am so excited to introduce the charming Marlon Alexander, a personal chef who has worked for some of the biggest names in show biz including Kiss, Rod Stewart and Christina Aguilera. I first met Marlon at a charity event, where a private dinner catered by him was auctioned off for a cool $14,000 (by the way, two of those dinners sold that night). Between his charisma, fascinating stories of the rich and famous, and delicious food, it’s easy to see why.

Truffle Butter

by Jojo Frey December 04, 2017

Truffle butter is a great way to preserve the aroma of truffles. Chefs recommend using truffle within five days or so. Aside from freezing it, making truffle butter is a good method to preserve the flavor. But, let’s be real… ain't no way truffle butter will last more than a few days in anyone’s fridge!!
