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.
