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.
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.
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 :)

I use this for making sauerkraut and kimchi. It does the job well. The water seal on the lid seals out nasties, but allows gas to escape during the fermentation process. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Brian Sniatkowski
This thing is fabulous. I can easily get eight quarts of pickles with each batch. The water seal works great, and I love the gentle bloop noise it occasionally makes. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
