Large Ceramic Fermentation Weight
Product Review (submitted on July 14, 2014):
This weight is so small and light (and this is the large version) that it really can't weigh down anything. I wish I'd noticed the dimensions before I got it. I had to substitute a ziplock bag full of water and washed rocks to weigh my kraut down.
Since the weight comes in two halves, I don't understand why it can't be larger, so it can cover most of the surface area in the cylindrical portion of the fermented vegetable master jar. That's what I mistakenly assumed I was getting. My fault for not checking the dimensions, okay, but from the string of bad reviews, it really seems like the merchant is content with a product that's not meeting their customers needs.
