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. In just 4-8 weeks you can have delicious sauerkraut from all typed of vegetables like cabbages, pumpkins, cucumbers, carrots, beans, beets, celery, onions, and peppers. Recently in the news, sauerkraut and pickled vegetables fermented the natural way with lactic acid fermentation are being credited with correcting bodily imbalances of intestinal flora, leading to problems including acid reflux for which doctors often prescribe harsh antibiotics. 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.
These beautifully crafted stoneware crock pots from Germany produce 40 liters of pickled vegetables very simply. The use of ceramic weight stones eliminates mold while the clever water sealing system allows fermentation gasses to escape without allowing air to enter the crock pot. Simple instructions for use and recipes are included. What’s Special about Schmitt Crocks? Schmitt crocks are German quality stoneware made using liquid slurry poured clay. This process creates a stronger and lighter weight crock for easier handling. Traditional fermenting crocks had a bottom to the lid-top capacity of 40 liters. You couldn’t fill it all the way or the pressing-stones wouldn’t fit. The Schmitt crock has a full 40 liters of fermenting capacity, so the crock is actually larger than 40 liters The Schmitt fermentation crock has a special cast gutter in the rim and includes a ceramic cover which fits into the gutter. It also comes with a 2-piece stone that is used to weigh down the vegetables and apply pressure during the fermenting process. The Nik Schmitt Fermenting Crocks have a delightful dark brown finish.
Because our Fermenting Crock Pots are handmade, they may feature minor variations in color, glaze, and shape. Due to this, the Fermenting Crock Pot you receive may differ slightly from their photo depicted above.

My company, HOSAco, makes fermented hot sauce in small batches. These large size fermentors are perfect to keep my production growing and keeping my ferments in ceramic (as opposed to switching into plastic or Stainless Steel).
Very grateful that E.W.S kept them in stock!
So far, I have a batch of cabbage that is in it’s 3 week. This 40L is huge! I love the design. I will have to update after my first batch of sauerkraut.
