Growing up in a family that had toast with butter almost every day, and was constantly cooking with butter, there was never a time when room temperature butter was NOT on the counter. So, I never knew the agony of trying to put cold butter on toast, until I moved away. (Ok, it happened sometimes at my parent's too, but it was rare...)
Of course, I have a butter dish with a cover, but I so rarely used it that after a week or two out, when I needed it again, the butter was translucent and anything but appealing. So, I turned to keeping it in the fridge, which made it useless for toast!
Solution! The butter bell! The butter goes into 'the bell' and is then turned upside-down into a dish with a small amount of water inside, keeping air from touching the butter. Using the butter bell, butter will keep, on the counter, for up to thirty days!
Here are some I suggest:
