Pickling is now so easy, successful and so very, very delicious. We are having fermented foods for breakfast (salsa on eggs) and dinner (chutney on rice). I am very pleased with the product. Thank you! Looking forward to the next fermented experiment.

Great idea and perfect for making small batches of fermented food. The fermentor is super easy to use and includes handy recipes. I wish it were made of higher quality materials, however. After using it the first time, the metal cup rusted. The second time, I had to add tape around the plastic airlock to keep it sealed to the lid. Hoping it holds up for more batches.

I've been using this product for over a year. You can make it cheaper with parts from a wine making store and a few from the hardware store but it's just so easy to buy it complete and ready to go. If you want to try some small batch lactofermenting then this is a pretty good way to do it - the airlock increases success rates considerably by keeping all of the bad stuff out. As for being complicated - you put some salt in some water and then put your vegetable in the brine and let is sit. How much salt and how long to sit depends on variables like what you're pickling and the temperature where you let it sit. Mostly I use 5gr (by weight!) of sea salt per cup of filtered water to reach a 2% brine that will pickle most vegetables just fine. I have pickled cukes, onions, garlic, and kraut with no failures whatsoever. I pickled corn relish and it worked - I just didn't care for it. My pickled peppers are the Belle of the Ball. Easy steps: salt, water, veggies, leave it alone.

Good, so far. I just started my first 2 quart jar of sauerkraut yesterday. Today it is bubbling away. I can hardly wait to try it. I would like to know how I can get the extra large mouth pickler.

Had this product for two weeks and have not used it. Still trying to make sense of the instructions, recipes, etc...not as easy and simple as advertised.
