      Comments about Ohio Stoneware 2gal Crock (2GC):

      I bought this crock to make sauerkraut. It's great looking and sturdy, and the "ship to your local Ace store" approach worked like a dream.

      I find that using an old salad plate as a cover for the sauerkraut (which I cover with a cabbage leaf before applying the plate) works well. It covers all the sauerkraut with just enough space between the edge of the plate and the crock to insert the tines of a fork so I can lift out the plate. I then put a jar filled with water on top of the plate and cover the whole shebang with a small towel for the fermenting.

      The one negative of this crock is that I didn't have a good sense of how big the crock would be or how much it would hold. I make sauerkraut for my husband and me with a recipe that calls for 6 pounds of cabbage (two large heads). (That amount usually lasts us about a month.) With that amount of cabbage, this big crock spreads the kraut out in a thin layer so I find generating enough brine to cover all the cabbage to be a challenge.

      I've just ordered the one gallon, a size I think will work better for me.

      Easy to use; store pick-up is confusing

          Comments about Ohio Stoneware 2gal Crock (2GC):

          I was happy to find this product at ACE's website. The price is great and it offered free store pick-up. The shipping notification/online status was confusing. Within days, I received an email notifying me that the product was shipped, without specifying whether it left the warehouse or has arrived the store. I call the store and they say I will receive a call. So almost 2 weeks passed and I decided to call the store again, at which point, I noticed that I have two missed calls from the store on the day that I received the shipment email. I still beats me why anybody would not leave a voicemail.

          That being said, the product is great for the purposes that I purchased it for. I've processed a few batches of vegetables in it. It's got a lot of space and I feel I could go a little more aggressive with the volume and still have space.

          At the same time, I kind of wonder maybe the 1 gallon version is a better fit, since this one is bulky and heavy and I'm afraid that I may drop it every time I handle it. For the time being, I'm keeping it as I find more ways to use it.

          Checked capacity with 2 gallons of water, there was still about 3/4" of headspace left. Loaded with 8# of cabbage and 1 1/2# of carrots and still would have had room comfortably for more. I will be buying more of these.

              My daughter was trying to make sauerkraut in a container that did not have straight sides, was difficult to keep the vegetable down in the liquid. This is just what she needed. I almost bought a very old crock for her (we Love old things) but just in time discovered that many of them contain lead!

                      First attempt to brine pickles. Glad to find a crock made in the USA. Glad I didn't buy a larger one, as it is so heavy.

                            Basic, non-porous, non-reactive vessel for a myriad of pickling/fermentation options. Well made, solid and good quality stoneware. Did not buy the half-moon stoneware weights (to keep the contents submerged) as I found these to be too pricey -- and any glazed ceramic or glass dish slightly smaller than the interior circumference of this vessel will work just as well.

                            No complaints at all. Loaded with peppers fermenting now. Nice looking crock. No frills but well made for functional use, just like I wanted! Unlike the competitors that paint a flower on the front and sell it as art for three times the price. This crock has the old down home look that I'm quite pleased with!

                                    I ordered the 2 gallon size crock to make sauerkraut and used 13 pounds of shredded cabbage (I bought about 16 pounds because there is some loss from the cores and such.

                                    Turns out that this was as high as I'd want to fill this crock to allow space for fermenting liquid to bubble up.

                                    I recently ordered the weights from another dealer. Ace doesn't list the weights or the lid for these crocks. I wish they did. I loved that I could get free shipping and pick up my items at my local Ace.

                                    This truly is a 2 gallon crock, but it is not as large as I pictured mentally. Its not quite round - I think that is because these are handcrafted. I can't wait to taste the sauerkraut when its done.

                                    Ace had the best price I could find on this crock.

                                        Ohio Crock good for pickling or planting. Can't beat quality made in the U.S.A.

                                        I purchased this crock to make my own lacto-fermented vegetables. For the first batch of kraut I made in this crock I used 3 large cabbages, 1 onion, and 2 carrots... and I have room for probably 4-5 times as much, if not more. It is definitely heavy, though, so need to keep it in a place where it isn't difficult to get at.

                                          This is the first fermentation crock I have owned. Previously, I have fermented my sauerkraut in mason jars and La Parfait jars. However, with the crock I used the open fermentation method, and the taste of the sauerkraut is fantastic! Much better flavor and texture than with the glass jars (the jars, however, are great for storing the finished kraut). Purchase the Ohio Stoneware Weights together with this crock, and it's a great system. With care, this should last 100 years.

                                                I use the product to make pickles and kim chi (basically Korean sauerkraut). I agree with comments that it's heavy, especially when filled, but for something ceramic, that goes with solid construction. I pretty much use it in place, so the weight's not a big drawback. Reason I didn't give it five stars is that a weighted "insert" (something that fits inside to keep the kraut or pickles submerged)with a handle would be nice. Fortunately, I had a plate that was just the right size. Good value; I didn't need or want an overpriced designer crock from a specialty store, and given the weight, not paying for shipping was a plus.

                                                  I'm so impressed that ACE carries this product and after scouring the internet, ACE had the best price and free to store shipping. I bought this crock for fermenting various foods but can think of a million other uses. It is exactly as the description states and seems very durable.

                                                    I bought this crock for sauerkraut, and it's working just fine for that. It's heavy and solid, like expected.

                                                        Bought this beautiful stoneware crock to try making sauerkraut. So glad to find a high-quality item from nearby Ohio. Having it shipped to my house would have been cost-prohibitive because of its weight. It shipped free to my local Ace store. Thanks Ace!

                                                        If you will be using the crock to ferment for a family, you might want a larger size. The 2-gallon was perfect for my needs. If you use the crock for fermenting, you will need to find an object to keep the food under the water level. I am using a bread plate weighted down with a quart canning jar filled with water.

                                                          Be cautious how much you load into the crock. It can get heavy quickly.

                                                              I am thrilled to have found this 2 gallon crock, made in USA with no lead in the glazing and at a reasonable price. It stands about 9" high and 9 1/2" diameter - a size that won't be too heavy for me to move once filled.

                                                              This crock doesn't come with a lid but it will be easy enough to use one of my plates of the correct size with something to weigh it down like a jar of water, bag of water or whatever else I come up with at the time. I do plan to run a good loop of dental floss under the plate --around a 3" oval and having the ends of the loop held down by whatever I use for weight-- so that I will have an easy way to lift the plate out.
