My cousin and I made 400lbs of sauerkraut on Friday and everything went really well. It only took four hours including all prep, clean up and a half hour pizza break. My question is for anyone else who has made it, what is your favorite type of cutter? We used one of his great great grandparents from the early 1900s. It worked very well except the box you put the head of cabbage in is very worn so we were not able to use the box. As a result I had to push the head by hand and although I had no accidents there was the potential for me getting cut. Also there was a lot of cabbage I was not able to cut just because I couldn't get my hands that close to the blades. I will try and make a new box but if I cannot I will need to buy a new cutter. Plus it wouldn't hurt to have a spare one incase we end up doing more than a few hundred pounds. So who out there has used a cutter, has liked it or not, and if you liked it where could I buy it. I know I can find a bunch online but I would rather have some advice before I purchase one. Thanks in advance.
