German experts in ceramics & stoneware for 80 years.
The SCHMITT Fermentation Crocks are superior quality stoneware fermentation pots, which are baked at 1260°C and then finished with a natural mud glaze.
Stoneware does not absorb water and bacteria like other materials, which is an essential feature in the fermenting process because cleanliness is so important.
SCHMITT Fermentation Crocks facilitate a gentle fermentation process where lactic acid bacteria is given optimum conditions for development, allowing the biological preservation to takes 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.
