If you're a beginner and also want some recipes and tamper, checkout The Complete Fermentation Kit. It includes all of these great products, plus a Pickle Packer vegetable tamper for making sauerkraut and a free recipe book.
Wonderful first ferment success in for home and work. I am a food educator who spends lots of at home time in the kitchen. These pipes and weights made pickle fermentation so easy for me to add to my teaching and fridge stocking. Love the simple design that makes them very easy to clean and maintain.
Well made, quality pieces. Makes ferments so much easier and higher success rates. Been using them two seaons and twice bought more. Love the latest Pebbles with handles - great improvement. Have recommended them to others.
Great Product, Great site.
I loved fermened foods, but hated the high prices and using so many glass jars. Not keen on the recycling waste. So, I wanted to ferment at home. I bought this set, and added the "Fermented Vegetables"book. After reading the first couple of chapters I felt confident enough to try it at home. I purchased some veggies from the farmers market, and already had Redmond's Real Salt in my pantry. OMG! The process was sooooo easy!!! I'm really glad for the weights and the Pickle Pipes to release the CO2. I look forward to many ferments to come!!!
