Adding a lid to the 1 gallon crock increases the number of ways it can be used. Use it without the lid as a planter. With the lid it is perfect to store baking supplies such as flour, or you can make your own sauerkraut and pickles.
All Medalta stoneware is microwave, dishwasher and oven safe. Please do not place stoneware over direct heat or shock from one temperature to another.
