Vinegar Pot

Turn leftover wine into robust, flavorful vinegar in this traditional stoneware pot. Made in France by a company that has crafted pottery since 1847, it has thick sides for excellent temperature regulation and a wooden tap to make bottling your vinegar easy. A traditional vinegar pot, like those found in kitchens across France, crafted of thick stoneware with a pale gray glaze that's applied by hand and high-fired. Generous 1-gal. capacity. The dish-shaped lid allows developing vinegar to breathe. Cork-stoppered wooden tap makes it simple to decant vinegar into bottles and cruets. Start with a bit of high-quality vinegar, add your own white or red wine, then simply wait. Depending on the air temperature and the wine you choose, you may have vinegar as quickly as a few weeks. You can use it right away for bright, sharp flavor, or age it for a few months in the bottle to mellow it. If you begin a new batch using a bit of the previous one, the results will be faster- and you'll always have a good supply to use and share. Instructions included. 9" diam., 9 1/4" high; 1-gal. cap 6.12 lb. Made in France. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

SPIGOT LEAKS ON FIRST DAY
October 16, 2013
The spigot cracked and leaked the first day dripping wine vinegar all over the kitchen counter. I received the pot as a gift and the pot is trash unless I get a new spigot that actually works.
Cons: materials, Not Durable, defective spigot

Do not buy
February 1, 2013
The spout on mine broke quickly as well.
Please stop selling this product until this design flaw is corrected, and then provide replacements spouts to all of us who have spent $100+ on a leaky pot.

Substandard
September 20, 2012
As with other reviews, the spout on mine also cracked in within several days. It also dripped from the spout continually from the get go. Don't waste your money!

Spout defective
August 22, 2012
Within a month, the spout cracked from pressure and wine leaked out. I contacted Williams Sonoma concerning a replacement and they were very helpful even though the item is on backorder. I'm looking forward to the replacement and hoping it does not have the same issue.
Pros: nice look, ws seems to be backing the product
Cons: spout issues
