3-Gallon Stoneware Pickling Crock – I tried to find a used crock in Wisconsin,

Cant wait to make sauerkraut for my hubby. Very heavy, well made, and attractive. You will need to order the crock cover and weights but well worth it.

Great for fermented foods. . Great for making sauerkraut and pickles. We’ve used it a lot and we like it very much. I made a heavy lid to keep the food under the liquid, and have never had a failure.

The crock was relatively what i expected, other than the inside glaze was a bit sloppy and the rock is not perfectly round so weights don’t quite fit right. I ended having to use a series of small plates overlapping each other instead. You are not able to visually see that it is not perfectly round. If the glaze was a little better and it was not slightly misshaped, i would have given it a 5 star rating. Here are the specifications for the 3-Gallon Stoneware Pickling Crock:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Made with lead free glazes.
  • Food Safe, easy to clean.
  • Conventional oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
  • Made in USA.

The vessel is tapered unlike older crocks. The 1, 2 & 3 gal ones are very similar.

Thanks for a great usa made product. There are no cracks in the thick glaze (and well there shouldn’t be) and i anticipate using it for many years. Thanks for a great usa made product.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Almost what I expected
  • Nice product – make sure no chips on interior.
  • That’s a crock of. . .

Well-constructed basic pickling crock. I’m using this crock for pickles right now, and finding it to be sturdy, well-made, and quite spacious(the 3 gallon variety). My only complaint is that i would have liked a lid, but it’s a good size to put a standard dinner plate across the top, so it’s not a fatal lack. And the price can’t be beat.

Our garden produced a bumper crop of pickling cukes. We’ve made 4 batches, and this crock handled it beautifully. Excellent pickles, – 12 pounds per batch – no issues, with skimming room to spare. If we were ever to increase our garden, i would easily order the larger size. For now this will work just great.

I bought this to make kraut, but have only made beer in it so far. It is american made, high quality stoneware. I wish it came with a lid but i will still give five stars because of quality and price.My first one came broken and the seller immediately shipped me a new one with no hassles. I always appreciate great customer service.

Awesome crock, packaging was very well done. The only thing i was confused about. The photo shows a lid but it didn’t come with one.

I tried to find a used crock in wisconsin,. I tried to find a used crock in wisconsin, and discovered that i didn’t need to pay $180 for an antique with chips – i store all of my grill tools in this, and it is so heavy, it never falls over.

My only regret is that i did not buy a larger one. I have made a few batches of lactic-acid fermented veggies in here.

Great crock and wonderful company. This crock is very well made and the glaze is flawless. I loved the customer service by sjs.

Just starting out fermenting, this was a great purchase. It’s sturdy, practical, and the 3 gallon size is perfect. The crock was shipped in a timely manner and packed well so it arrived unscathed. Thanks for the great product and service.

Just the product for curing pickles. . I was tired of rummaging for over sized jars in which to do my curing.

I was in a hurry for a crock to use. I was in a hurry for a crock to use and i had lent mine out and the person who borrowed it was still using it, so when i found this one on amazon and they had two day delivery,well, they saved the day. I received the crock and it is now full of sour kraut and earning its place in our family.

This crock was exactly as represented. Good quality and will work as expected for my use of making sauerkraut.

Nice quality crock, i was able to make 3 gal of pickles and they came out great.

Get one of these and get brewing. This is the premium vessel for kombucha fermentation. Works great, highly recommend. Very sturdy ceramic stoneware, and the 3 gallon size is just right for my brewing needs.
