Why I Love This Product

My Fermented Vegetable Master has a special place in my kitchen. Fermenting veggies has never been easier with this handy airlock system. When the bounty is plenty, my FVM is extremely busy with cauliflower, carrots, cucumbers, cabbage for sauerkraut, tomatoes, and even fruit chutneys. Many times I have no recipe, just too many veggies! Simplicity is the best feature since I follow a generic ratio of 3 Tablespoons of celtic sea salt to 1 quart water for my brine. Throw in the veggies, cover it with the brine, and put on the lid. 3 to 10 days later, I’ve got an enzyme rich food that is well-preserved and won’t go to waste. It’s never failed me! Please read my blog post on how I ferment my garlic harvest…it’s breathtaking!

    • Why do we need use weights if it has an airlock? I thought that the airlock should keep the threat of mold out and eliminate the need for weights.
    • The weights help keep the vegetables under the brine during culturing. Vegetables that are above the brine may discolor and turn mushy, even if surface mold is not present when using an airlock

    • We have an old recipe for school girl pickle which takes 21 days to make. The recipe calls for soaking in brine for about 14 days and then changing the water and soaking in fresh water overnight, then using a alum soak (lime), soak in vinegar for 24 hrs.etc. , then adding your sugar and spices. Could the vegetable master be used for making this type of pickle? If so how? Would the vegetable master speed up the brineing process?

      Thanks!
    • The Fermented Vegetable System is a fermenting system with an airlock that allows the gases to escape but keeps outside invaders like mold spores, fruit flies, etc. Yes, you could certainly use the Fermented Vegetable Master for making your School Girl Pickle recipe.

    • Hello, I bought one of these last fall and love it. However, I haven't figured out a good way to keep the veggies submerged in the brine with this container because the mouth is so much more narrow than the rest of the jar. I just re-read the description here and saw that it is supposed to come th 3 weights. I never received them with my order. Can I get some weights now? Thanks.
    • The Fermented Vegetable Master was previously sold without weights.

      The fermentation weights are now available for purchase as a separate item.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Cindy at 1/1/2013 10:09 AM
    • Do I need to purchase weights to go with this? If so, do the ones you carry fit this jar?

Worth the money Review by RMK

I know that it is possible to make gorgeous, healthy ferments without using something like this. However, after a year of cabbage leaves covers, burping jars, and constantly trying to weigh down errant veg- all with middling success- I decided to try things the easy way. I'm thrilled I did. The Fermented Vegetable Master is effortless to use and made the most delicious, consistent batch of sauerkraut I've ever had. I didn't have to anything. I just set it up and watched it bubble away on a high cool shelf: no white scum, no mold, no mushy texture. Very pleased. Honestly, if I added up all the ferments I had to toss because of concerning outcomes this item would probably already have paid for itself.

It is true that, as others mentioned, that the ceramic weight doesn't do loads of work, but I didn't have any problems with the sauerkraut.

Really valuable item in our home. Highly recommended.

I got this primarily to start properly fermenting my green chile salsa and krauts and to do some other fresh veggie ferments.
I love how easy it is and how well it works, my first batch of fermented fresh green chile salsa was amazing! I used to use other jars or one of my older crocks and keeping the fresher air out was nigh impossible. This works exceptionally well and takes up very little counter space for small kitchens.

Great product, needs a gasket, combined single weight Review by jim
Price
Value
Quality

It's a nice system, easy to use and a good value. I think it could be improved if a reusable gasket was included with the airlock lid. Even if I tighten the lid down to near breaking (and I'm a big guy with strong hands), I cannot get it to seal enough to force the gas up through the airlock. And, instead of the three small glass weights that mine came with, I'd prefer just one bigger one, sized to just barely fit through the opening. The smaller ones like to slide around in the brine as the fermentation makes the veggies rise. But I am otherwise very satisfied with it and highly recommend

I wanted to try culturing my own vegetables, but the whole process seemed intimidating. This kit made it so easy, and the results were perfect and delicious the first time. The vegetables were so popular that I'm probably going to have to acquire another gallon kit.

I purchased this over the holidays for some family and friends but kept one for myself. I am now officially addicted to fermented foods! Our favorite is to make fermented salsa. Great on chips and over eggs. The air-lock makes it so simple, never needing to touch it until it is done fermenting.

This was my first time making sauerkraut and this product worked great. Only took 7 days and no mold. The idea of letting gases out but no air in is accomplished simply by the top of the fermenter. Very easy to set up.

Does it work? Perfectly.
Can you make your own for less than $5? Absolutely.
What sold me on this product was the glass weights. Turns out they are a bit of a joke.
I'll use this product a lot, but had I been able to see and touch it in a store I would not have made the purchase. I would have opted to fashion my own with parts from a home brewery store.

I like the way the jars are set up its easy to start a batch of kraut. I have no problem with mold I do wish the mouth of the jar was a little larger its hard to find weight to fit into the jar.

loved this product with only one small criticism Review by Sharyn
Price
Value
Quality

I have used the fermentation jar once and it made absolutely great pickles - in fact, they were perfect and I am very very pleased. Plus it was easy to make them, and the jar looked cool during the process. My only criticism is that the weights do not work well - they are so small they want to fall down into the jar. I managed to use them by placing a small lid under them to keep them from getting lost. I suggest that they be re-designed, as the cukes do need to be held below surface of liquid. Otherwise this is a great product!

Now that I know that I can get the jar local, I can probably just go with the topper. The topper is pretty cheap plastic but will hold up if you are careful with it. On a note, the directions that came with the jar for fermenting... I would look online for more information if you have never made kraut before.

Success the first time out! I tried making kraut to no avail time and again and finally found the right equipment. With live culture kraut $7 for 25 oz in L.A., the Vegetable Master paid for itself with the first batch. Well worth it!
