Fermentation crock, Williams-Sonoma, $79.95

I got one of these Polish-made, ceramic beauties for my birthday and I love it. For making small batches of sauerkraut or pickles a Mason jar is fine, but I go through the stuff quickly and graduated to this wonderful fermentation crock. I’ve got a big batch of kimchi working now and I’m brewing up some kombucha next. If you’re a fermentation fan or know someone who is, this is the one you want.
