Our hand thrown stoneware fermenting crocks or pots are made in the Netherlands by master ceramist Peter Hinssen where a strong tradition of healthy fermented food exists. The stoneware is guaranteed 100% lead and toxin free and is fired and glazed at a very high 1320˚C to produce an extremely hard wearing pot. Our fermenting crocks should not be confused with cheaper glazed versions which deteriorate after a number of uses due to the mild acid produced in the fermentation process, our artisan produced stoneware is made to last.
Our traditional Kimchi crocks include a glazed internal weighstone which keeps the kimchi below the fermenting liquid level. The weighstone is kept in place by a grooved rod which enters through an apperture in the lid and is held down by an elasticated cord.
All our fermentation pots include weights to keep your perserves submerged in the fermenting liquid.
