What makes it Mighty?

  • From beginner to expert, make probiotic-rich food easily and successfully
  • Fits any standard wide-mouth mason jars
  • Probiotic rich foods support a healthy gut biome

Make delicious and healthy sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi and more! Perfect for beginners or experts, and great as a gift. This 9-piece tool set will make fermenting your own vegetables quick and easy, eliminating the risk of mold and the need to monitor your ferment on a daily basis. Works with any wide mouth Mason jar (jars and screw bands not included).

Kit includes:

  • 4 Pickle Pipe silicone airlocks (for wide mouth jars)
  • 4 Pickle Pebbles PLUS+ glass fermentation weights 
  • 1 Pickle Packer wood vegetable tamper
  • Step-by-Step Recipe Guide: contains everything you need to know to become an expert in no time!

The Pickle Pipe is a simple, one-piece waterless airlock that allows gas to escape without letting any contaminants backflow into the jar, and it screws into place using any standard mason jar band. Made of food-grade silicone, 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, fumble with multi-piece airlocks, or monitor the "moat" of water-based airlocks. It's truly a "set and forget" solution.

Pickle Pebbles ensure 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 Wood 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, it allows both ends to be used for packing vegetables and allows the Pickle Packer to be used in a wide variety of jars and containers. Made from all natural, untreated Acacia wood and finished with a food-safe mineral oil to seal and protect. Acacia wood is known for its renowned strength (2x as strong as maple) and durability, and it is a sustainable and eco-friendly option. 

Use and care:

Pickle Packer care: 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.

This is more of a review for the tops than the kit. I purchased a mini-kit (weights and tops) through the kickstarter for MasonTops and have been really happy with it. All components were really well made. I use the tops most frequently for a ginger bug that I use for fermented sodas; they breathe well and keep unwanted debris out.
