It’s easy to make pickles and sauerkraut in this traditional fermentation crock. The time-tested design incorporates a water trough airlock that allows carbon dioxide and other fermentation gases to escape while keeping out air. Includes crock and top, as well as weights that keep vegetables submerged for effective fermentation.

It's okay. A little different than what I expected.
Comments about : 3-Gallon Fermentation Crock Complete Kit:
The pottery is a little thinner than I expected-- I thought it would be more like the heavy crocks I collect. I can see now the person who commented that theirs shattered. I didn't really get that until I felt this one. And the lid I received is a totally different color than the crock. It's very white while the crock is more of a beige. And the blue stripe on the lid is a totally different, brighter blue and different thickness than on the crock, too. Because this isn't a decorative item in my home, more of a functional one, I'm not going to cry about it, but it bugs me a bit that it looks like a mismatched set.

Love this crock!
from Oakland, MD
Quality made parts and ingenious features make this crock my go-to for a life time. Love the water-filled airlock but I do wish the handles were a bit deeper.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The instructions are clear and gives you several options on the recipies.
will buy another one soon
The crock arrived unbroken, but the weighing stones where loose and not sure if the crock has a hair line crack in it till I use it. One the stones was crack in half almost, but customer service was very easy to deal with and sent new ones out same day. This crock looks great and is big enough to do a large job or do a small batch of kraut. Very nice looks and construction seams great, considering made in the USA. Lid is easy to grab and has been fix from old design. But make no mistake, it is heavy and would be a lot heavier when filled. But good crocks are.
Love this product
Easy to clean and very versatile

I am admiring it on the counter preparing my first batch of kraut. I have wanted one of these for a long time, but wanted a American made crock. Thank you Gardeners Supply for carrying this Quality product!!! I am confident that it will make the best kraut ever, and it is more beautiful than in the pictures!!!

I bought this to make sauerkraut. I have made kraut in the past so understand the importance of the airlock feature. Also having the right weight is important. I will make my first batch of kraut in this crock this year so I will update my review after complete. I like what I see so far of this item.

I really liked the whole concept. I failed the first time. The second time I was quite excited. I thought this is it. Finally I can do it. I carefully prepared the vegetables . I picked up the lid and moved to place it and in one second it shattered. Granted I'm a disabled veteran and my hands aren't the best but I was shocked when it shattered. I still don't know why it happened and I have to throw everything away. I can't afford to replace it. Great I guess if you can use it. Not at all great for those of us with disabilities.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
