The Pickle Pipe is a super simple one-piece waterless airlock that allows gas to escape as necessary without letting any contaminants back flow into the jar, and it screws into place using any standard mason jar band. FDA food-grade certified, waterless, dishwasher-safe, and more compact... the Pickle Pipe is the natural evolution of the mason jar airlock. Once screwed into place, you can forget about the Pickle Pipe for days, or even weeks. There is no need to "burp" your jars manually each day, fumble with multi-piece airlocks, or monitor the "moat" of water-based airlocks. It is truly a "set and forget" solution.
Pickle Pebbles have been specifically designed for use with fermentation and take the guess work out of your lacto ferments by ensuring your veggies stay below the surface of the brine thereby eliminating exposure to oxygen (which is the main cause of failure when using lacto fermenting methods). Pickle Pebbles PLUS+ are designed for use in wide mouth canning jars, and can also be used in traditional ceramic crocks. With the Pickle Pebble PLUS+, one weight is often enough to keep veggies below the brine. Dimensions: 2.75" diameter with 0.75" thickness. Pickle Pebbles are made of non-iridized soda glass which is completely inert and guarantees that no other substances leach into your ferment.
The Pickle Packer has been specifically designed for small-batch fermentation of sauerkraut and other veggies in both wide-mouth and regular-mouth mason jars. Measuring 10" tall, 2.5" at the wide end and 2" at the opposite end, our unique design allows both ends to be used for packing vegetables for your ferments. This allows the Pickle Packer to be used in a wide variety of fermenting jars and containers. Pickle Packers are made from all natural untreated Acacia wood and finished with a food-safe mineral oil to seal and protect. We chose to use Acacia wood not only because of its renowned strength (2x as strong as maple) and durability, but also because it is sustainable and eco-friendly.
Ball Wide Mouth Quart (950ml) Glass Jars are ideal for fermenting vegetables. Enjoy homemade ferments all year round with the famous Ball Mason glass jars.
Pickle Packer Care Instructions: Hand wash with warm soapy and water only. Occasional oiling (using food-safe mineral oil) may help to lengthen the life of this product. Not dishwasher safe and should never be allowed to stand in water as it may damage the wood.

Super easy to ferment. Love the pickle pebble which keeps the vegetables submerged and the pickle pipe airlock which stops all the brine running out of the container. Easy to pound the vegetables as well. So glad I bought the kit!
I completed my first batch of sauerkraut, it tastes good to me, and last night, my German friend gave it the thumbs up...so I'm very happy with my fermentation kit!
Have given the kit a whirl, enjoying my first batch of kimchi. no dramas, family enjoying too.
Practical tools for easy fermenting - thanks
Love the kit, I have another airlock fermentation kit but I get mold with that one. I have made 6 jars of kraut with this kit, all very successful. When my sister said she wanted to make sauerkraut I bought her the kit for her birthday.
