Pickle Pebbles have been specifically designed for fermenting vegetables and fruits in Mason jars. Pickle Pebbles take the guess work out of your lacto-ferments by ensuring your veggies stay below the surface of the brine, thereby eliminating exposure to oxygen which is the main cause of spoilage and mold. While a single Pickle Pebble is often enough to keep veggies below the brine, they can also be stacked to provide extra weight. Pickle Pebbles are made of non-iridized soda glass which is completely inert and guarantees that no other substances leach into your ferment.

This was a repeat purchase for me. I ordered some pickle pebbles and pipes for regular mouth jars a couple of years ago, and really liked them. As my confidence in my ability to successfully ferment with them has increased, I have moved into doing more in larger jars, most of which have wide mouths. so I needed the wide mouth version. I like the new design with the handle that makes it easier to get the pebble in and out of the jar. Overall, it is a great product from a great company.
I've been fermenting for two years, now. Using your fermentation weights ensures that my finished projects can be refrigerated in smaller jars. They last longer and stay mold free because the weights keep food under the brine. I'm very pleased with your product and prompt delivery.
I've been using them for some time now, and with improved results. These Pebbles are easy to clean and fit into the wide-mouthed jars I use. There was a reviewer earlier who had some trouble getting a Pebble out - I did too with a couple of mine, but I was able to turn them from side to side or along the edge in order to get them back out. I considered making this a four-star review because I didn't realize this would be fulfilled through Amazon, a company that I'm consciously trying to avoid. My view of that company is a separate issue, and it may be that it's necessary for Masontops' own business, but no matter how much I dislike Amazon, it doesn't take away from how well these Pebbles work.
Super Item, love it.
Perfection. Better than any lther tool for this I have used. Love it.
