Large Ohio Stoneware Fermentation Crock

This traditional hand-molded stoneware crock glazed in an attractive white with blue stripes is made from a retired mold brought back by our artisans in Ohio. Lactofermentation is what gives sauerkraut and traditional pickles their signature tang; it also delivers probiotic microorganisms that benefit digestive and overall health. Simply place your prepared vegetables into the crock, lay on the included crescent weights, fill the gutter and add the lid. The crock's clever design allows carbon dioxide to escape the crock while keeping unwelcome microbes like mold out. In four to eight weeks, you'll have piquant pickles and sauerkraut. Attractive stoneware crock allows for easy fermentation of sauerkraut and pickles. 11 1/2" diam., 15" high; 3-gal. capacity. Includes two 8" x 4" stoneware crescent weights to keep contents submerged. Made in USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Nice Quality!

I own several of the famous brown crocks that are made in Germany, but I think that, overall, I prefer the three Ohio Stoneware crocks purchased from WS. They are finished inside and out, which makes mildew practically impossible. Even the weights are finished. Something I can't understand is that my 3 gallon OS crocks seem to hold more than some of my larger German ones!

Nice Crock
April 5, 2013
I just received this crock but have not used it yet. Overall it is very nice and seems substantial without being a brick. I have 1 and 2 gallon OS crocks that impress me with their build quality. This may not be right up there with them but I think it will work just fine and likely better for the price than other options.
I think for more money a Harsch is probably a bit nicer, but the pickles won't notice.
