Love it!


Pickles, red beets, cauliflower, carrots all made in my fermented jars!


Very handy and convenient


I've used it several times to make the fermented vegetables. They taste good and I can add them, as hoc, to any dish. My guests like them too.

Ferment seemed faster than normal..and clean...no mold! Easy to use....I need to get the smaller ones too.


Simply Great Design


I've been wanting to try fermenting vegetables for quite a while. I loved the kraut my son made, but needed my own supply. Finally, I saw this product and how simple and easy it could be. I've got my first batch of sauerkraut under way and can hardly wait to taste it! Even after one day, when I opened it to add a little brine to top it up, it already smelled like kraut! I like that the glass allows me to see what's going on in there, and that the container looks nice on the counter. I like that the water seal lets it breathe. I may end up with several of these so I can try more recipes faster. I'm so grateful this option is available now.More > < Less

About Mortier Pilon

Pickled Goodness

This fermentation pot will help you create nutrient-rich foods that are good for digestion . . . and it looks great doing it.

If you’re not familiar, fermentation introduces helpful bacteria, or probiotics, to balance your digestive system and help it absorb more nutrients. It’s an age-old food preservation technique that—without the right tools—can be as messy as it is beneficial. You put your foods in a type of brine (usually a mixture of salt, water, and vinegar), and a delightful chemical reaction happens.

Mortier Pilon creates the ideal environment for this biological transformation. This vessel has a futuristic look with clean lines, but the design has a purpose. As the organisms inside begin to grow, they create gases. The water seal lets those gases escape, while also keeping air out. An included weight makes sure your veggies stay submerged under the brine and outside the reach of unwanted bacteria.

Get new recipe ideas fresh from the Mortier Pilon cookbook—like pickles and homemade sauerkraut. To keep track of your creations, update the rewritable label. To store your fermented foods in smaller batches, you can use their optional canning jars.

Whether you’re an expert or an amateur, this fermentation crock will get you asking, “Is that fermentable?”
