Cabbage Kraut Pounder
Made in the USA
To pulverize cabbage and make sauerkraut you need a sturdy kraut pounder. Each vegetable pounder is hand carved here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Made with sustainably harvested Black Cherry (Wild Cherry) and Black Locust. The large pounder head provides the maximum surface area for squashing cabbage. The long handle creates leverage, it'll pound the same amount of cabbage with less force than shorter handle pounders. A well made wooden sauerkraut masher should be handed-down through friends and generations. Wood is traditional and meant for the long haul. The longer a wooden tamper is used, the more worn and smooth it becomes. Just as no two trees are the same, the patterns and colors of our wooden stompers are all different. Be sure to use wood conditioner on these wooden stormers before using and from time to time throughout its life. This will keep the pounder from splitting and cracking.
