Our stoneware fermentation crocks are cast from American clay in Ohio, famous for its natural stoneware products. We think a two gallon crock is the perfect size crock for home fermentation. It fits well in your kitchen but it's not so small that you eat up all your sauerkraut in a day.
The stoneware crock weight, also made in Ohio, fits inside in the crock and weighs just under 4 pounds, providing enough heft to keep your sauerkraut or pickles well below the brine where the natural microorganisms can work their magic fermenting.
Completing the set, the fabric top sits perfectly on the crock, covering the food inside while allowing the gases produced during fermentation to escape. Sewn in the USA from domestic and imported fabrics, our tops are pre-shunk before assembly so they'll maintain their shape after they're washed.
