I love this crock and my sauerkraut came out perfectly.
Amazon Customer
The crock was packed very well; it came in a 4 ft or so box with the smaller box the crock was in buried in packing peanuts.
Book Addict
These crocks are well made, easy to use and very sturdy.

I ordered this pot after I had purchased 2 sizes of the Harsch Fermenting pots just because I liked the color and shape of the TSM and wanted to try it and compare with the pots I already use. I still like the color and outside shape, but those are the only things I prefer to the Harsch pot. The TSM has a smaller channel for the lid and does not hold as much water. That means that one must be more attentive and diligent in keeping the channel filled to maintain the seal and I definitely prefer the lower maintenance Harsch pots. The interior of the pot narrows towards the top and I apparently didn't buy enough veggies as I should have because the stone weights weren't big enough and I needed to add paper-weights to cover the large area that weren't weighted by the stones. The straight sides of the Harsch pot make it easier to make smaller batches if you aren't perfect in your calculations of how many vegetables to buy and process. I didn't like was that the edge of the lid was not glazed and the lid itself absorbed water from the channel that gets slimy. It seemed unsanitary. The water absorbtion was also an issue with my first batch because as the lid swelled, a large crack revealed itself. (Amazon was great about replacing it.)

I compared this crock to the more expensive one and was concerned about one of the reviews that said this crock developed slime on the seal. I did not have that problem. I did not have any problems. I love this crock and my sauerkraut came out perfectly. I have never fermented anything before so I was nervous about mold, slime, unhealthy bacteria, etc. I let my sauerkraut ferment for 6 weeks, trying it every week after the first two weeks of fermentation. I have never tasted kraut like this. It is so delicious. Even my picky 3 year old loves it. This crock was soooo easy to use. I am very impressed! I am going to buy the 20 liter crock as well so I can make pickles in it. There is no need to spend more for a fermenting crock. This one is great. Oh, and I had many questions about the crock before my batch (remember I was very nervous) so I called TSM and left a message. A very helpful woman called back within half an hour and took the time to answer all my questions. Great company and a great product.

Well...what can I say? It works like it's supposed to. We put about three and a half heads of shredded cabbage inside...salt...popped in the weights (sold separately) and three weeks later...delicious sauerkraut.

I don't have the German crock to compare this one too...but this one works fine for our sauerkraut loving family.

Suggestions: The stones made for this crock come in two "halves." To avoid having your stones fall through when you're making half-batches of kraut or pickles...lay some cabbage leaves WHOLE across the top after you pack it. Then put your stones on top of the leaves. The leaves will keep the stones on the top...AND will collect the yeast that will sometimes grow on the top layer of vegetables.

Size Name: 20 Liter Verified Purchase
I purchased this 20 liter TSM and a 10 liter Harsch. Overall both are quite well made, very heavy duty and likely to last a lifetime. The straight sides allow a bit more discretion when it comes to the total amount to be fermented, the design is pleasing to both the eye and use...plus the price is considerably less for the TSM.

Based upon price alone, I feel very comfortable with this purchase as the variations in quality are not that significant especially with the straight sided options for both. However, overall I prefer the Harsch version. The general finish and air lock groove is a bit more refined on the Harsch, the stone quality and fit were also better. In fact, the stone for this crock really should be slightly bigger. We spoiled the first batch of pickles due to one half the stone having slid sideways and exposing the pickles to excess air...the fit is simply not as well defined as in the Harsch.

Overall, a strong contender with a very competitive price.

As the title stated, it's cheaper than the other hyped ceramic crock. Both have the same important feature - the water seal at the top. Google the "harsch" method and you can see how this works. It's a hermetic seal that keeps the bad micro critters out. I actually prefer the lower point of gravity the handles provide.

As to the shipping... all I can say is 'wow'. Although the pot stands about 1 foot tall, it was packed in a 4 foot box with quite a bit of packing.

I have a 2 gallon batch of pickles happily fermenting in the corner of my kitchen as I type. Tasted one a couple of days ago and I can say that the old ways are quite tasty.

To TSM, you should include the weight stones :)

This is my first crock although I have seen the Harsch in action. I chose this crock because I love the curvy shape of it, the fact that it has handles (which help a lot) and that the price is much more affordable than a Harsch crock. They work the exact same way; the Harsch is a nice crock too, but there is no point in just paying for a name.

The crock was packed very well; it came in a 4 ft or so box with the smaller box the crock was in buried in packing peanuts. The crock was surrounded on all sides in the smaller box by thick Styrofoam sheets on all sides and under the box was a thick piece of foam for more cushion. Upon inspecting the crock you can tell that the surface has some minor imperfections (specks or dimples) here and there under the painted surface: no cracks, chips, or anything to really complain about though. It's stoneware, what do you expect. It looks nice on my counter.

I agree with other reviewers that the stone weights need to come with the crock.

With this crock I purchased:
Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon
Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods by Sandor Ellix Katz

These are the best references you need.
