Pretty, but not practical
I bought these to test out for a home based business making artisanal kimchis, sauerkrauts, various pickles, etc. They look sturdy and nice online. In reality, the glazing is uneven and thin in many spots. Very shoddy craftsmanship. Also, the blue logo they put on was horrible. I can tell they spray paint these on because there is blue over-spray. This is under the glaze. So, it looks bad. Most importantly, these crocks are HEAVY. So, if you're planning to be moving them around or doing frequent batches where you need to wash them etc. it will get old fast. The 4 gal crock weighs 23 lb. empty. 4 gallons of pure water weighs about 33 lbs. So, moving a full crock is about 56 lbs. I am glad I didn't get the 5 gallon model! Also, when these are wet, there are no handles or places to grab that have traction. The glaze makes them SUPER slippery. All in all, these are now very EXPENSIVE, decorative cookie jar and utensil caddy in my kitchen. I have instead bought a bunch of white, 5 gallon NON-BPA plastic buckets with lids do do my batches. They weigh less, have a handle, and cost much MUCH less. If you are looking for form over function, these are for you. If you are practical, then probably not the best choice.
