Don't wait to try these weights.

If you're a seasoned fermenter, you know the importance of keeping your ferment under the brine.

That's why we designed this set of elegant glass weights specifically for mason jars. Not only are they easy to grip, but they're effortless to use.

After you've filled your mason jar with veggies, place a weight over your follower (we recommend using a cabbage or grape leaf) and fit a fermenting lid.

Each weight features a small handle that allows you to place and remove them from mason jars effortlessly. They're heavy enough to keep down the most vigorous ferments and super simple to clean.

Give this set of four as a gift or keep them for yourself. Either way, they'll last you a lifetime of fermenting. 

Why we made this

When we first started fermenting, we used river rocks as weights, but they're difficult to sterilize and impossible to grip. That's why we designed these clever glass weights.

The handle is perfect for all finger types and prevents grubby microbes that may be on your fingers from entering your ferments. Use them once and you'll be hooked.

Perfect fit.

These weights make fermenting so easy. The perfect fit gives surety that nothing ends up floating on top. The thickness is perfect and the handle allows for easy removal .. these are a really great product!

Excellent product

Bought these to go with fermenting lids, so much easier than plastic zip lock bags with water in! Do the job perfectly.

Really pleased!

Really pleased! The weights are just as described and the packaging is perfect. A lovely cardboard box to store them in when not in use.

Great Weights

Perfect weights. The handle makes them easy to use. I know it's nothing to do with the actual product inside, but the packaging was excellent too.
