TSM German-Style Harvest Fermentation Crock uses lacto-fermentation processes to preserve foods. Lacto-fermentation requires an oxygen-free environment. If oxygen enters the vessel, spoiling can occur and off-flavors, or the scum growth on top of the fermented food can happen. To prevent those wrong bacteria and yeast formations, The TSM fermentation crock includes a crock weight to submerge the food below the salt water brine. In addition, a water gutter along the top lid allows gases to escape while keeping outside air from entering. Salt is mixed with foods and then water is added to begin preservation. During fermenting, body-friendly bacteria and/or yeasts feed on the sugars and carbohydrates within the foods being preserved. These bacteria grow and proliferate, the end result is fermented foods with healthy probiotic levels, and boosted vitamin and enzymes amounts. Lacto-fermentation can be done using the fermentation crock with various foods including vegetables, fruits, beans, grains, meats, dairy, beverages, and more. Let The Sausage Maker bring home healthy, traditional foods from your past and from around the world to your table!

This thing is cheaply made!!! MADE IN CHINA Review by Edwin
I've had a Nik Schmitt 20 Liter German Fermenting Crock Pot for some time now and I recently received this TSM 20 Liter Fermenting Crock Pot and WOW what a difference!!! DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM This thing is cheaply made!!! MADE IN CHINA The handles might as well be left off because it's slippery to carry this item using the handles even when empty. The TSM is also an inch or two taller than the Scmitt; if that matters to anyone. The TSM weighs 18 lbs (without the weights) while the Nik Schmitt weighs 24.5 lbs (without the weights). You may be thinking the lighter the better, because you may not be strong enough to carry it full, but it's not so much about the weight as much as it is about the thickness/durability of the walls. I'll be trying to return this item!!! (Posted on 8/25/16)
