The weight of these is sufficient to keep the veggies below the brine surface in wide mouth Mason jars. The raised handle makes it easy to retrieve the weights; the glass is smooth and easy to clean. If I need more in the future, I will purchase from Country Trading Co. The notifications of shipping and speedy delivery were much appreciated.
I have been searching for the highest quality cheesecloth for squeezing every last drop out of our homegrown elderberries.... and I finally found it. Others I used before had a terrible smell when I received them, and even after washing thoroughly, they would continue to turn clean water into murky water. I have only purchased "organic" cotton before, but finally found cotton grown in the USA. the quality of this cheesecloth far exceded my expectations. No odor at all. Highest quality fibers (no tiny specs of fibers breaking off into my elderberry syrup!), ingenious hemmed design with just the right thickness, and strong enough to be used over and over and over again with SERIOUS squeezing and pressing each time. These are my new "go to" cheesecloths from now on!
Great product and extremely fast shipping. I always buy from small local shops.
I was excited to get my yogurt making set in a very timely manner. My happiness was short lived however when I broke the jar trying to get the metal top off. Country Trading made it right by replacing the jar. I am grateful and very pleased with my first batch of yogurt.
I like the sustainable nature of this product but it is pricey... Seems like good quality, but I just got them!
I love these airlock lids ,I am new to fermenting and these lids are a game changer, I received my order within a couple of days after placing my order.
Does the trick! Very simple to use, made some wonderfully creamy, tangy dairy yogurt on the first try. The recipe book has a lot of great info and ideas. Can’t wait to try a plant based recipe next. Highly recommend!
"Elly’s Everyday Soapmaking" You Tube channel was a source of information about this item. My shaker was delivered fast, packaging was nice, no damages. Looks great and works great too. Nice addition to my kitchen! I am using it with my own homemade soap.
I made my yogurt with lactose free milk since that is what I had in the fridge. The directions are very easy to follow. Eight hours later the bottle went in the fridge. Next morning I had delicious yogurt, thick and creamy texture. Surprised me beyond my expectation. I divided the yogurt in two jars. One plain for me and one with vanilla, cinnamon and honey for my husband. Yum!
Perfect for fermenting. Exactly what I needed. Easy to use, easy to clean. I really appreciate the plastic free packaging as well.
Enjoyed the non-electric yogurt maker —- fewer EMFs in this epidemic time.
Y'all had exactly what I was looking for my tabasco pepper and habanero canning. Your website is easy to navigate and your company seems very customer friendly. I hope Country Trading continues to be successful and y'all possibly expand your inventory variety in the future. Thank you.
The best cloth I ever owned
I love how this yogurt maker looks ! I don't have to hide it away in a cabinet where it will sit, begging to be used. And absolutely love the small vertical footprint. A whole quart of creamy, delicious home made yogurt in an 5"x10" space ! Pricey, but no regrets here :)
I have used the yogurt maker about 4 times now, and each time the end product is as expected. I have only used whole dairy milk, and to get the thicker consistency I want, I drain about a cup of the whey after the 8 hour set-time, using a cheesecloth. The initial process takes about a half hour, including cleaning up the dishes. I also place the whole unit into a small cooler just to keep the air consistent around the container. The flavor is very good.
I have only tried my yogurt maker once but the finished product was thin and didn't really taste at all like yogurt. I used pure oat milk but apparently it is difficult to actually make vegan yogurt. I'm not sure if I would have been better off with an electric maker as maybe it needed to be warmer but I will try again with a different plant based milk and hope for a better outcome.
Works great. Just what we were looking for. Fast shipping. I would recommend this company.
Saw this on Elly’s Everyday Soapmaking You Tube channel.. had never seen one before or heard of washing dishes with bar soap. Searched and found your company, most won’t ship to the US and you would.
Love this soap shaker and my new way of hand washing dishes with soap I make myself; thank you!!
I received my order very quickly. High quality. Love it. Thank you Trading Company.
We received the gnocchi boards in great condition. We did have a few issues with their website initially. But once customer service found out that we have not received the boards yet they turned it around and expressed delivered them to us at their cost.
