This 1 Gallon Preserving Crock Starter Kit includes a 1 Gallon Stoneware Crock, 1 Gallon Crock Cover, and 1 Gallon Weight Set

These beautiful Ohio Stoneware crocks are very useful, and make a nice addition to any stoneware collection. They are great for traditional canning and pickling uses, and this 1 Gallon Crock is a nice size for pickles and kraut. They can be used decoratively, as well... and as kitchen storage and pantry containers. 

In addition to this 1 Gallon Crock Starter Kit, we also sell a 2 Gallon Crock Starter Kit

When purchasing our crocks, covers, and weights, please keep in mind that we carry six sizes of Ohio Stoneware preserving crocks, weights, and covers. Lid size and weight size should match the crock size, (I.e., 1 gallon lid pairs with the 1 gallon crock, and the 1 gallon weight set pairs with the 1 gallon crock). Available in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10 gallon sizes. 

Each crock is fired at a high temperature for durability! Finished with Lead-Free, Food-Safe Glaze. Ready to use. Easy to clean. Will not retain the food’s flavors. Microwave safe. Oven safe. Dishwasher safe. High Quality! 

American Made by Ohio Stoneware in Zanesville, Ohio!

    Absolutely love it. And the price is right for the 1 gallon Starter kit.

    Actually more than a gallon for head room. I do an extra step. I bought the gallon starter kit. So after the weights are in I add a 1 gallon zip lock bag with water in it for a final seal that allows gases out then the lid is put on for the final step.. have kimchi in it now. Then after this I want to try the Kerry Kraut from the Masontops recipe book.. 2 lbs of cabbage per quart jar. This 1gallon Ohio crock can Easily do 8lbs. Of Kraut at a time. Or less. Just always keep a batch going.. just like wine making. Lol

    Carefully shipped. An excellent product. I already have cabbage fermenting. Minus one star for the smeared logo on the crock.

    I received my Ohio Stoneware Preserving 1-gallon crock and was so impressed by how well it was packaged and how beautiful and well made it is. I cannot wait to use it, but until then I plan on showcasing it. I highly recommend this company!

    Posted by Tina on 20th Jul 2020

    I received my crock a little over a week ago and I immediately made sauerkraut. It turned out great. The crock works great and is pretty sitting on my counter. I intend to order the 3 gallon with in the next couple weeks.
