Instructions: Pack vegetables and brine into Mason jar with 1.75” headspace. Once packed, place one glass weight on top and ensure it's slightly submerged. Remove any food that floats to the top. Top off the jar with airlock or lid
Sized perfectly to be inserted and removed with ease
Ensures vegetables stay below the surface of the brine, thereby eliminating exposure to oxygen which causes mold
Heavy enough for one to keep everything submerged below the brine, but can also be stacked to provide extra weight
Made of non-iridized soda glass which is completely inert and ensures that no other substances leach into ferment
Food-safe, lead-free, and non-porous
Made in China
Pure soda-lime glass
Clean weights before each use to prevent contamination. Hand wash weights with warm water and soap or clean in top rack of dishwasher. If using the dishwasher, avoid extreme heat settings (i.e., "steam"). Do not boil glass weights
Four glass fermentation weights
Regular: 2.1" x 2.1" x 0.5"; Wide: 2.75" x 2.75" x 0.75"
Take the guesswork out of home fermentation. This mason jar fermenting lid creates the perfect anaerobic environment to make sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi, and other ferments.
There’s less daily maintenance, too, compared to other techniques. The lid keeps air out but is designed to let gases escape, so you don’t have to burp it every day. Plus, mason jars are pretty easy to get a hold of—you can even use ones you already own. Just screw the airlock lid onto jar and wait for the good bacteria to emerge.
Fermentation is good for you because of that bacteria. It can boost your gut health, strengthen your immunity, and improve your body's ability to absorb nutrients.
Whether you’re experienced or new to the craft, Masontops’ kit equips you with everything you need (instructions, recipes, glass weights, and even a vegetable tamper to help release the veggie’s brine directly in the jar).
Make room on your counter for your very own batches of fermented goodness. Your gut will thank you.
