Water Seal Fermentation
Ferment food the traditional way with our water channel crock jar, lid and weights. With this crock, you can make numerous probiotic-rich recipes like kimchi, pickled vegetables, sauerkraut, kefir, kombucha, yogurt, sourdough, condiments, and more! Fermentation gives fermented foods their zing; it also delivers probiotics, B vitamins, omega-3s and digestive enzymes that strengthen our digestive and immune health. There is no limit to the types of fermented foods and beverages you can concoct.
- Make german-style sauekraut for layering on a bratwurst or eating on its own--best served warm!
- Or try your hand at an easy napa cabbage kimchi recipe, rich in umami flavor and healthy probiotics!
- You can truly ferment any vegetable, especially cucumbers, to get the crisp tart flavor of pickles!
- It's even easy to brew kombucha or grow a sourdough starter by swapping out the lid for a clean cloth!
Place prepared cabbage, cucumbers, and vegetables into the crock, using the included crescent weights to submerge the contents, fill the gutter rim, and add the lid. The ingenious design of this crock allows carbon dioxide to escape while keeping air and unwanted microbes and contaminants, such as dust and insects, out.

I also feel it’s worth mentioning considering the way things are now, that Ohio Stoneware was very quick in processing my order. Much consideration for damage free orders is obviously taken. (Impressive packaging peanuts) Kelli in customer service was quick and helpful returning my emails with questions I had. Will definitely do business with them again.
Came well packaged. It's actually larger than I expected, so lots of room for food. I left off a star because the handles are decorative only. I would rather they not be present than so ineffectively shaped. A good workaround is a brewer's carboy hauler harness.
Haven't used it yet was very pleased with the fit and finish should be able to pass this down
My fermentation crock was delivered quickly with no damage. I would highly recommend this crock….it’s awesome!!
I'm very pleased with the design of this crock
have not used yet but showed up ok not broken or cracked
I simply love the crock, and will make enough fermented pickles for my midnight cravings. I originally wanted the 2 gallon crock kit, but didn’t know how long the wait was, so ordered the larger 3 gallon, and happy with the purchase. Found a nice spot near the fireplace to keep while not in use. The crock came well packed and very quickly. I have a itching feeling this won’t be the last of my purchases.
Haven't used it yet, but it appears to be made well. Happy to see somebody continuing the tradition of the previous company was there.
these are great! i own two, and i will probably buy two more
