    Make natural nutrition-packed sauerkraut and pickled vegetables with this stoneware crock pot from Germany. Through the years, sauerkraut has been recognized as one of the healthiest foods and was even used on sailing ships to protect sailors from scurvy. Natural lactic acid fermentation is one of the oldest and healthiest means of food preservation. It allows natural, beneficial bacteria to perform a fermentation process in which vegetables develop a pleasantly sour taste and remain rich in vitamins and minerals. Lactic acid fermentation is the only method of preservation that retains all the natural plant ingredients while improving the quality, taste, and aroma.

K&K Keramik German Made Gartopf F2, 5L (1.3 Gal) Fermenting Crock Pot

Tim W. (Harleysville, US)

Well made high quality crock in a perfect size for me. Quickly delivered and exceptionally packaged.

The only negative I can come up with is the air lock channel should be larger to hold more water and make it easier to fill without spilling.
