When contemplating my 1-year-old kinda fancy dishwasher, and how much it sucks compared to my old builder-grade dishwasher that formerly believed to be pretty terrible, it occurred to me that perhaps planned obsolescence is a real thing. I got a little mad. The new dishwasher ($$$$) is worse than the old one ($) was at the end of its life! It’s not just about the money, but about the fact that I will need to replace this dishwasher and all my other “stuff” a lot sooner than my parents have had to replace their dishwashers and other appliances throughout their lifetime.
No, this isn’t a ranty, on-the-verge-of-lacking-Christmas-cheer non sequitur. It’s a way for me to contrast my frustration with the throw-away culture I engage in on a daily basis with the long-lasting, quality stuff that Stone Creek Trading is generously giving away here today. I can’t lie. I am jealous of the folks who win this giveaway, because these fermentation tools really rock.
There will be 3 very lucky winners:
- One person will win a $25 store credit to Stone Creek Trading (that’s more than enough to cover these glass crocks weights that I’m officially obsessed with and so many other great items).
- One person will win a Kraut Shredder. I have one of my own and I LOVE it. It’s a gorgeous, homey tool, and one that you can use to make even kraut pieces without the aid of a culinary school education (aka knife skills) or the use of food processor electricity.
- One grand prize winner will win a 5 liter, water-sealing crock. I have a the same crock in the 10 liter size and it’s my go-to for big batches (especially kimchi. Yum!). I never have surface issues, and it comes with the glass weights that I mentioned above. Dreamy!
We’re ending this giveaway at 11:59 EST on Tuesday, December 15th so that these items can be shipped in time for Christmas.
