The Secret to Create Healthy Fermented Foods from Home

Craving homemade sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles, and other fermented mixed vegetables? Make quick pickled vegetables with this easy to grip wooden pounder.

Known as a kraut crusher, stomper, tamper, plunger, muddler, basher, or masher, this wooden sauerkraut pounder is lightweight and features an ergonomic handle that's perfect for smashing and salting anything, from red cabbage to Asian vegetables.

Our wooden tamper is crafted from a single piece of beechwood timber and designed to last a lifetime. The plastic-free packaging allows you to feel good while you eat well.

Why we made this

In 2018, we led a workshop tour across New Zealand with Sharon Flynn, author of "Ferment for Good."  We made all the lacto fermented vegetables for attendees to sample, and that involved a lot of making sauerkraut in a jar and a lot of cabbage crushing. We soon realized the importance of a lightweight, durable, and easy-to-grip kraut pounder.

We tried and tested a few prototypes before settling on this wooden sauerkraut pounder. Designed with home fermenters in mind, it is the perfect size for pounding and packing veggies into mason jars. Whether you're new to making ferments or are a pickling pro, we guarantee you'll love this product.

    Good Quality

    I am pleased with the quality of the wooden stomper/wooden pounder that I got from this store. It doesn't feel cheap at all. I'll try to update this review after I've used it to make sauerkraut. On the other hand, I think they need to work on packaging their stuff a little better next time.
