Replacement Lid for Fermented Vegetable Master
Product Review (submitted on July 15, 2014):
The makers of these veggie master lids say that these lids only fit their proprietary jars: this is not true. ---- Some of the plastic salsa jars at costco fit these and for the smaller lids, they fit some other smaller glass jars so you can perform experiments. The other thing is that I also do canning. and I am **NOT** going to buy stuff that is a "one use only" thing. so while the veggie master has limited themselves to a proprietary business model, I found lids that work with half gallon and quart size mason jars. (which I already have a lot of). Mason jars are cheap (6 of the half gallon for $12 at walmart), the veggie masters are far far overpriced.. Cultures for health have some great airlocks and grommets (but those grommets need a 7/16 inch dia hole. not a 1/2 inch hole.) I will continue to buy things at cultures for health as they have other good quality products (like the fermentation weights).
Response from CFH: While there may be other jars that our lids fit, like the Costco salsa jars, there is no way for us to know which those might be. Our intention with our product description is to let customers know that they will not work with most other jars, including canning jars.
