The traditional 4 quart glass jar will churn two quarts of cream into approximately 1.5-2 lbs. of fresh butter.  Churning time is dependent on the starting temperature of the cream and the speed of churning. If you start with cream at 65 °F  and churn at a speed of about 120-150 RPM, the total time of making butter (including draining buttermilk and molding butter) is about 20-25 minutes. 



  • Designed by Churncraft. Assembled by hand in our workshop in Connecticut from parts manufactured in America, Canada and overseas.

  • Each churn is laser engraved with its own unique serial number.

  • German-made precision gears are the heart of the power train. Optimal transmission ratio of 1:3 gives three full paddle rotations for each turn of the crank, which is a good balance of speed and torque power for the job.

  • Protective transparent dome provides alternative handhold while churning and keeps fingers from getting caught in gear mechanism.

  • Curved wave paddle makes butter quickly and is removable for easy cleaning.

  • 4 qt glass jar is shaped to optimize churning action. Natural ripples and tiny bubbles are typical of traditional, small batch glass blowing.

  • Solid American hardwood grip is milled in Maine.

  • Shafts are custom machined from solid rods of stainless steel.
