    • Are the half-gallon and gallon the same size for the lid? Or the quart size and the half-gallon size? What about the pint and quart, would either fit the wide mouth mason jars?
    • Each of the lids is designed for the specific size jar. They are all different, and none of them fit a standard mason jar.

  • From Joyce at 9/12/11 11:16 PM
    • Would this lid fit on a regular wide mouth canning jar?
    • These lids fit only the Fermented Vegetable Master jars, which come in four sizes. The diameter of the lid and the thread are different from standard mason jars.

    • Can you explain the physical set up starting with lid for us dummies?
    • This item is simply the replacement lid and airlock for the Fermented Vegetable Master. The FVM jar is not a standard canning size so a replacement lid can be very handy if a piece happens to get lost. As for how it works, the airlock is filled with water which allows the gasses created during fermentation to escape but keeps unwanted new air (which could encourage mold) and pests from getting into your fermenting vegetables.

    • Is there a seal of some kind in the plastic lid that goes against the glass jar to keep air out?
    • There is no seal in this lid, but it is not required for the lid to be entirely airtight to get a good fermentation environment.

    • Can you please tell me what is the diameter (size) of the opening into the plastic lid?
      Thank You so much!!
    • The diameter of the hole in the lid is 1/2 inch.

  • From Hannakli at 4/11/13 8:54 PM
    • Does this fit a standard commercial glass gallon jar?
    • Gallon jars can have varying opening sizes and thread patterns. These are only recommended for the Fermented Vegetable Master.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From James Kreitner at 8/21/13 1:25 PM
    • Why don't you have lids formatted for (Bell) mason jars? I have hundreds of those jars in all sizes and have had to buy fermentation lids for about $10 each from other sites.
    • The manufacturer of the Fermented Vegetable Master has created this lid and jar combination specifically for their company. We do offer the Perfect Pickler, which fits standard wide mouth Bell and Kerr jars. Sorry about that!
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From enzymeE at 9/12/13 1:07 AM
    • cant he lid set ups go in the dishwasher or are they hand wash only?
    • The hard plastic pieces may be able to go in the dishwasher however, the rubber grommet and small lid for the airlock could be damaged by the heat. Hand washing is best.

arrived quickly, can't wait to try them. Review by Cindy
I should have read more about the product before I purchased it. I can't get them to fit on any of my jars, so I will have to order the right kind of jars before I can start using them. I am looking forward to purchasing the right kind and size of jars so I can get started making my cultured veggies.

Response from CFH: Our replacement lids do not generally fit other jars. The jars and lids are custom made. (Posted on May 3, 2014)
