What Our Customers Are Saying
Ordered these as I didn't have weights for a standard size canning jar. They seem to be a bit small. Used them with sliced peppers and some pepper rings floated up to surface and turning sideways. I ended up using my silicone discs. They will probably work well with a full and tightly packed jar. My jars were not. I am NOT unhappy with purchase.
I wanted the wide mouth weights. Don't know where I went wrong. I am using them but not happy with myself.
I liked the shape of the pickle pebbles, you can easily hold them, but unless you filled the whole jar and insert them at the mouth of the jar, they don't hold the pickles under water. If you do fill the jar and place the pebble on top of the contents, the juice spills out (when you use a standard mouth jar). The standard pickle pebbles don't work for wide mouth jars, at least not for the type of pickles I make. And I thought they were a bit pricey.
These work great, but NOT for less than full jars, like you'd have with the shorter pickling cucumbers. They simply sink to the bottom of the jar if they can find a weak spot (loosely packed spot like you'd have with pickles).
However, when the jars are FULL (for like, for instance, beets for beet kvass) they work AWESOME. Soooo much better and easier than rolling up cabbage leaves that splash your brine all over.
I use wide mouth quart jars, and the pebble could be bigger to fit those jars. I put a plastic lid in the jar, upside down, with the pickle pebble in it to weigh it down, and that worked well.
