    • What is this product used for? Do you absolutely need it to make sour kraut?
    • The Kraut Pounder is used to mash the cabbage, bringing out the juices for the fermenting process. It is very helpful, but certainly not necessary to make sauerkraut.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

    • Is this used for pounding in a canning jar? And it won't break the jar?
    • The Kraut Pounder is used to mash the cabbage, bringing out the juices for the fermenting process. It is very helpful, but certainly not necessary to make sauerkraut. You can use it in a wide mouth canning jar, but we recommend that you press, rather than pounding with it inside the jar. This will compact your veggies without damaging the jar.

  • From Marsha at 4/23/13 5:40 PM
    • Is there any finish on the wood and if so what kind?
    • It is finished with expeller-pressed walnut oil.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Wilson at 9/18/13 2:21 PM
    • What wood is this made from, and does it need oiling?
    • They are made from hardwood maple and finished with expeller-pressed walnut oil. They should be reoiled when they become dull with more walnut oil or you can use mineral oil if you prefer. These instructions come with your pounder.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Kim at 10/9/13 11:06 PM
    • How wide is the pounding end in inches?
    • Base Diameter: 2.5 inches (designed to fit into a standard wide-mouth canning jar).
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Debbie at 2/27/14 7:55 PM
    • I use large mouth gallon jars...is this going to be long enough to get to the bottom of the jar while keeping my hand out of the jar?
    • Yes, the Kraut Pounder is 11.3" high with a handle shaped just right for fitting in the palm of your hand. The will easily fit to the bottom of our gallon Fermented Vegetable Master jars.

This is a must have tool for anyone making sauerkraut or other ferments that need to be worked. Very high quality wood tool. So much easier to use, hold, and work with to pound cabbage then other kitchen stand-ins. A little pricy but worth it! (Posted on April 17, 2014)

This cabbage crusher was exactly what I needed to make my kraut. The fact that it was coated in a natural oil and not some synthetic chemical was what was most important to me not to mention it worked great. (Posted on April 10, 2014)

I have just used it once, but it was very comfortable in my hand and pounded the cabbage properly. It is made of beautiful wood, very smooth to touch. I will conserve it with the butcher's block oil. Thank you! (Posted on March 20, 2014)
