This  2 Gallon Preserving Crock Starter Kit includes a 2 Gallon Stoneware Crock, 2 Gallon Crock Cover, and 2 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 2 Gallon Crock Starter Kit, we also sell a 1 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!

    Preserving crock 2-gallon starter kit

    Posted by Stephen Bloomberg on 13th Aug 2021

    The kit arrived in a timely manner and is working great with very little fuss. I hope to taste the furits of my minimal labor in a few days. I'm making a batch of pickles and this is the first time I've fermented anything. This crock kit is very easy to use, inexpensive, and will recommend it to anyone curious about preserving food. The 2 gallon size, I feel, is perfect for those starting out. Thank you for making a great and well-made product.

    2 gal preserving kit

    Posted by Ray Pace on 1st Aug 2021

    This product exceeded my expectations. Crock was finished beautifully and the lid and weights were perfect. We are making pickles now. Some reviews reported crocks broken in transit. My shipment was packed so securely with expandable foam that It would be very unlikely any damage could occur. Overall most impressed and pleased.

    Extremely well made

    Posted by Norma Nicholas on 30th Jul 2021

    I ordered this starter kit because I have never had a crock that had weights specifically made for the size crock. The care and workmanship which goes into these crocks is very apparent. The weights are easy to use and it is nice to have a lid instead of using a towel and rubber band. The packaging was exceptional and I would not hesitate to order from this company again.

    Beautiful Piece

    Posted by Celia Frazier on 5th Jun 2021

    I saw the Ohio Stoneware crocks first on Amazon a while ago. I've always kept my eye on these. It was between the German crocks or these from Ohio Stoneware. After reading the reviews on Amazon for these, I discovered that there were a lot of complaints for crocks arriving broken. Not what I wanted, so I went in search of the actual site for Ohio Stoneware. Here I am writing a review. The crock arrived in perfect shape. Packing was very well thought out. Delivery was also QUICK!!! The crock is larger than I imagined--BUT boy does it look good on my countertop in my farmhouse kitchen. I LOVE IT! Awesome piece. Will be back for another.

    Perfect home sized crock

    Posted by Joseph Johnson on 28th May 2021

    The crock, weights, and lid arrived in a timely fashion. I was sort of surprised by this as my order was supposedly a "pre-order" , of which I was expecting to wait for a few months to receive. But I got it in about two weeks, so thank you Ohio Stoneware. Not only was the crock and all accessories delivered quickly, they came in perfect order. No chips, cracks, or other issues. At the moment the crock has approximately twelve pounds of shredded cabbage that is slowly fermenting into sauerkraut, and could probably safely handle another three pounds worth. Thank you, Ohio Stoneware, for a great product.
