With a classic design that is both decorative and functional, this 3-gallon stoneware fermentation crock provides a time-tested vessel for transforming cucumbers into crunchy homemade pickles, as well as making sauerkraut, kimchi and other gourmet fermented treats. Also ideal for kitchen and household storage. Made in Ohio, each thick-walled crock is fired at a high temperature for durability, finished with a food-safe, lead-free glaze and stamped with a signature seal denoting the size. Three options: buy the crock on its own; purchase the crock and cover; or choose the complete kit, which includes crock, cover and weights to keep foods submerged for safe, efficient pickling and fermenting.

Perfect pickling set up!!!

Comments about : 3-Gallon Stoneware Pickling Crock Complete Kit:
I bought this crock set to brine cucumbers for pickles and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the components. The crock wall thickness and substantial weight of the crock ensure that I will have many years of usage. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent quality crock, already considering buying one more
from Los Angeles, CA
The pot is great! The lid it arrived with was not closing very well but was immediately replaced by a customer service rep. I will definitely recommend this product and shopping at Gardener's Supply Co.

Great for making kraut and pickles
By The canner

This crock is awesome have made a batch of kraut already and I'm in the process of making pickles. Very well made heavy duty crock, lined on the inside so things don't soak in or out of the crock. Bought the 3 gallon kit, the lid looks plastic in the picture but it isn't, it is heavy duty porcelain just like the crock, and the weights work awesome. Couldn't be any happier with my purchase
Arrived as promised

Not as expected.
By Avid canner
from Rome, PA
I am using this as a decoration as I tried to make sauerkraut in it and it spoiled. The cabbage was under the liquid, but there was spoilage still. It had a rotten smell and was not edible using this product. There was mold after only 3 weeks of fermenting, spoiling the sauerkraut. This could not make an airtight seal that is needed for fermenting without spoilage.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
