Straight-sided crocks are the classic, time-honored vessel commonly used for vegetable fermentations such as cucumbers for pickling and cabbage for sauerkraut. A fermentation weight or plate may be nested inside the crock on the surface of the ferment to keep the solids submerged in brine. Covers are also available. The straight sides are handy during fermentation when an appropriate sized weight is used. Stoneware crocks can be a good value option, particularly for large batch sizes. These crocks may find other handy uses as pantry and kitchen containers.

Ohio Stoneware crocks are safe and easy to clean due to lead-free glaze. They are also oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
