No instructions or recipe booklet

This item was out of stock when I first went to order. Within a week I received notice it was instock and preceded to order. The order came in a timely fashion and packaged properly. After, removing all contents of the box, I noticed no instructions nor recipe booklet. No way of getting in touch with costume service from company. All YouTube videos do not show how to use the seal. The red ring? It does not fit properly, or I'm not using it correctly. Probably the later, but since there is no instructions, not sure how to rectify this issue. I'm a experienced fermenter, but this set-up is different than my other styles of containers and lid systems.
Great product

I was a little skeptical about this product, but I had tried to make fermented pickles in a large mason jar last year, and they turned out moldy. This crock is perfect in that the water seal prevents air from entering, but also makes it easy to check on the veggies during the fermenting time. I have already made two batches of pickles, and my friends with whom I shared them loved the crisp, briny way they tasted. I'm going to try sauerkraut next! This is an excellent product.
I am fermenting now!!

This fermentation pot is a sleek, modern twist on an age-old tradition that helps promote a healthy digestive system. Whether you’re a veteran fermenter or looking for an easy induction, Mortier Pilon creates the perfect anaerobic conditions for your next batch. Its water seal system lets gas escape but keeps air out. Use the rewritable lid to keep track of whatever nutrient-rich creation is inside.

Mortier Pilon

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?”
