Having the right tool makes any job easier and this is just the right tool. We've done without and with is better!

I bought the large one. It worked perfectly to tamp down my cabbage when I made sauerkraut. The long handle provides the leverage you need. It is really worth it.

For those who complained I didn't see anything about contacting the company. Here is their comment on 'contact us' page: If you are ever unhappy about anything we do -- our service, our products, anything! -- please let us know. We'll do our best to make it right. We stand behind what we sell. This sounds like they really stand behind what they sell. I'm sure if the comments with the 'knots' and 'cracks' in the stomper had contacted the company to return or replace the product they would have done so gladly. I'm impressed with customer service.

Well made and heavy duty. It worked perfect for compacting the layers of shredded cabbage in the crock.

The workmanship on this stomper was very good quality. It was exactly what I was looking for and arrived fairly quickly. As stated, you should use a butcher block conditioner and expect this to last a lifetime.

The workmanship is of poor quality. The plunger has a large chip out of the side, and the handle is attached crookedly. It'll work alright, but the quality is less than expected.

Well made and very heavy duty. Used today on my first batch of sauerkraut. The long handle makes it possible to stand and smash with the crock on the floor.

Just what I needed! This is a wonderful item for making sauerkraut! It's very well made of solid hardwood and the long handle helps reach the very bottom of the crock. The wide, flat head on it makes stomping the cabbage easy and fun. It should last many years if I take good care of it. I wish I'd bought this item a couple of years ago!

This kraut stomper made making kraut so much easier than what I was using. It made the kraut so juicy. It was a good purchase.

Pathetic quality! It had a knot in the head and now after one use it has spit at that knot and it is showing several fissures in the head end after drying out.

My wife and I put up 25 pounds of sauerkraut after we bought this Sauerkraut stomper, and it makes the work easy! This product is a superbly crafted tool, and we are highly pleased with it!

well crafted stomper that works well. Oil it when storing and it should last a long time.

Extremely well made. Not only could you use it to stomp sauerkraut but it so heavy that it could be used in self defence during a home/kitchen invasion.

I've used this sauerkraut stomper for two seasons now and quite a bit of sauerkraut. It's held up very well and delivers a very good blow to get the juices flowing in the crock. No cracks as yet. Well made.
