      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!

                  Great size to make sauerkraut or pickles. When not in use looks great seating on the kitchen counter. Holds 10lbs plus of cabbage for kraut easily

                    Sauerkraut!

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

                    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.

                        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.

                                                I make sauerkraut every year and wanted to start doing more fermenting in general. Good quality crocks are a long term investment, but I was having trouble finding one I could afford. This one is high quality, and yet affordable, and it was delivered to my local Ace for no additional fees. Good deal.

                                                    The Crock works great, exactly the size I wanted for good size batch of pickles.

                                                    However, the crock got lost in transit to my local store. If I hadn't called about it, it might still be in limbo.

                                                      This is a very nice piece and the the ship to store by Ace was fast and convenient. I plan to use it for sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables including pickles. It is fairly heavy, especially when in use so those who are less physically able should plan to have it in place before starting to add the ingredients or other contents. With care, it should last for several lifetimes and the relatively low price makes it an excellent value.

                                                            I use it to make sauerkraut. So far it has served my purpose perfectly. It was made by an established, reputable company and was made in America which is very important to me. It was reasonably priced, too! I can't think of anything that isn't great about it.

                                                              I think this is a great crock for the money, i LOVE that i could have it shipped to my local ACE store for free! This is the perfect size to do big batches of sauerkraut. I feel safe feeding food prepared in it to my kids knowing the glaze is lead free, and i really love & trust the quality since it is made in the USA!

                                                                    I will use this and have used it to make sauerkraut. Just made my first batch yesterday. Hopefully everything will come out good :) the 2 gallon one I bought was a bit smaller then I had imagined so If there would be a next time I would order the 4 gallon or bigger. Great quality..very heavy and seems like good construction. I would recommend this product to anyone.
