Ingenious design! Love this kit! I’ve never fermented before and this kit has everything you need to get the job done. I tried an inferior product I bought at Walmart and ended up returning it.

Great for a newbie

Loved the kit, made various batches of sauerkraut right away- the tops allowed the batch to overflow and burp as needed without any input. The only complaint is the wooden pounder was filled with wood putty and was not quite as lovely (not being fully wooden) as hoped.

Great Kit!

I have been wanting something like this for quite some time. This kit has everything someone would need to make great fermented vegetables.

I had already been making sauerkraut in wide-mouth mason jars for a few years but always felt a bit nervous about making sure they were weighed down properly. The pickle pebbles took away my anxiety and the pickle pipes were icing on the cake. The wooden tamper fits into the wide-mouth jars perfectly and washes up nicely.

I really think this would be a fabulous gift for someone who's been dabbling in veggie fermentation or who would like to get started making fermented vegetables. I know I would have loved to get this as a gift if I had not found the kit on my own.

Exactly what I wanted!

This was the perfect starter kit for making homemade sauerkraut easily. I’m so happy I got it. The large end of the tamper makes it easy to pound sliced cabbage to release the juices for better fermentation, and the smaller end is perfect for packing and pressing the cabbage into the jars and making sure it stays submerged in its liquid.

The glass weights keep your veggies submerged in their brine, and the silicone air valves are nice quality and ensure that your jars won’t build up excess pressure and burst.

My only suggestion is to consider buying some plastic mason jar ring tops to go with the silicone lids in this kit, as metal mason jar rings get rusty from salt brine. Mason Tops “tough bands” are the name of the plastic rings. The basic recipe guide in the kit is easy to follow and is also a really nice touch. Great gift for a passionate home cook in your life.
