Glass Fermentation Weights for Vegetable Pickles - Set of 4

Regular price $34.90

Unit price per 

Cleanliness matters when fermenting food at home. We use these fermenting weights in our own ferments because:

  • The heavy glass pickle weights are easy to sterilise 
  • They keep vegetable ferments safely under the brine
  • They stop spoilage microbes on your hands from getting into the pickles
  • The handles make them easy to retrieve from the jar
  • They fit all wide mouth mason jars

Food safety also matters so we laboratory test these pickle stones to ensure they are free from lead and heavy metals and safe to use in your sauerkraut and kimchi.

We package them in a plastic-free gift box that also makes an ideal kitchen storage solution to keep your weights together.

Team up these weights with our Sauerkraut Pounder and Fermentation Lids to make a great gift set for cooks.

Specifications
  • 4 weights per pack
  • each weight weighs 200g (7oz)

How to Use

  4. sit the glass fermentation weight on top of the follower

    Couldn't be happier

    Since the arrival of these weights my collection of bubbly experiments has grown quite a bit. They are really versatile and make everything so easy. Perfect for smaller jars where you can also watch the magic. Highly recommended!

    One jar at a time

    These weights are great as I can use smaller jars rather than the crock when I want to make smaller amounts.

    Finally!

    I've waited so long for these and finally got some for myself. They are everything Country Trading promised. Very happy with my investment and they have been put straight to use. Thank you also for the prompt service and delivery as always.
