German experts in ceramics & stoneware for 80 years, Schmitt makes Fermentation Crocks of superior quality stoneware.
Baked at 1260°C and then finished with a natural mud glaze, this stoneware does not absorb water and bacteria like other materials.This is essential considering that hygiene is so important in the fermentation process.
Schmitt Fermentation Crocks facilitate a gentle fermentation process where lactic acid bacteria is given optimum conditions for development, allowing biological preservation to take its course. The two-piece stone weight is required to create the pressure necessary for lactic acid fermentation and helps ensure that the level of liquid in the sauerkraut pot is sufficient.
Authentic, 100% European production.
