    • after placing the crushed cabbage in the ball jar, how does this air-lock device work? How do I set it up? I can see that it is 'plugged' into a plastic lid, which is then of course screwed onto the jar but I don't see how an air lock will be acheived. Thanks
    • The airlock is inserted into the grommet in the top of the jar. The airlock is filled with water (to the fill line) and the small plastic cup piece is placed upside down into the airlock, covering the air tube. The small cap is placed on the top of airlock. This creates a water barrier between your culturing food and the outside world, allowing the gases to escape while keeping your fermenting food safe from mold spores or invading fruit flies etc.

    • Does the plastic airlock fit a regular or wide mouth Mason-type jar?
    • The plastic airlock is a replacement for the Fermented Vegetable Master or Perfect Pickler airlocks. The airlocks can also be used for any lid with an appropriate sized hole and grommet.

    • How do you create a hole in the mason jar lid for the airlock device?
    • Use a power drill with dowel or pointed bit to drill your hole. Be sure to use a low speed to avoid melting the plastic.

Indispensable for lactofermentation Review by Elisa

The little gadgets do not look like they will withstand the ravages of time but they may surprise me. As they are, they ensure that no unwanted yeast (or worse) develops in the jars and that's exactly what they are marketed for. I am glad they exist.

A lot of fun Review by Coastal Grannie

Purchased some larger food grade containers with lids. Drilled 1/2" hole in lid, put in 1/2" gourmet, used freezer bag of water to hold down the cabbage and made large batch of wonderful sauerkraut!

no more mold! Review by Marian

No more mold! Love this for making sauerkraut and other ferments. Easy to clean, too. Worth every penny.

inexpensive replacement part Review by Anise

Was glad to be able to get a replacement airlock at the same time as my perfect pickler. (I got the airlock with to U-curves.) Low price, and nice to have on hand when one breaks.
