Great Crock, but handles are too small
Aug 22, 2020
I have a batch of pickles getting happy in it right now. I can tell the water seal is working because there is an occasional "burping" sound from the fermentation gasses escaping through the seal. The three gallon crock fits into the dishwasher for sterilization if you remove the top rack. The only feature I would improve is the handles. They are too small, and you really can't get a grip. I would recommend putting the crock in the place you want it before adding water. I have to give it 4 starts because of the handles, but otherwise, I am very happy with the crock.

Crock works great, I purchased over a year ago; packaged well, shipped promptly, have made multiple batches of Kraut, and Sour Pickles all turns out great. The only drawback is with the wimpy handles, the empty crock is heavy, then to add 3 gallons of product inside with the weights, the whole unit is very heavy, If you need to move it the small slippery glazed handles are inadequate. I would like to more substantial handles.

My 3 gallon crock arrived on time, in much protective packing & in excellent condition. The crock & other supplies I ordered are wonderful! I am delighted!

Our new crock came through unscathed, with plenty of packaging. Thanks to Lehman's for their customer service. The crock is high quality and we're looking forward to getting stared when our cabbage is ready.

Received our shipment yesterday. The whole crock bottom was broken into shards. The weights and the separately boxed lid were still intact. (The weights were bubble wrapped inside the crock.) My wife called customer service and Teresa stated a new crock would be shipped. Considering we paid an extra 25 dollars for packaging on top of the standard 20 dollars, I would have expected at least a couple more layers of bubble wrap under the crock and reinforced bottom. We were disappointed, but realize these things happen. We will provide an update once a new crock is received. Hopefully, this will be a quick and timely process. Expecting the overall quality of the crock to be good, but three stars is the best I can do at this point.
Lehman's says: Thanks for letting us know! We are looking into the shipping issue to prevent this from happening again.

I just received the crock (after waiting as it was on back-order), and it is lovely. The crock arrived in perfect condition and was well-packed. It is a beauty and is VERY WELL made. I couldn't be happier.
