Details

Make pickles, sauerkraut, kimchi, and more using your wide-mouth canning jars.

  • Very simple to use. This airlock set up fits on standard wide-mouth canning jars (specifically Kerr* and Ball* brands of jars).
  • Eliminates air while keeping the fermenting vegetables under the brine resulting in less scum and mold formation while also generally yielding a crunchier end product.
  • Air and gasses created through fermentation escape through the water-filled airlock but new air cannot enter keeping your fermenting vegetables safe. Eliminates the need to open the container during fermentation to check on the vegetables or to remove scum and mold from the surface.
  • Can be used with just vegetables, salt, and water. Can also be used with whey or a starter culture if desired.
  • Airlock lid can be switched out for a solid lid after fermentation for easy storage in the refrigerator.
  • Pickles and other fermented vegetables can be made in as little as 4 days (although many people prefer the taste profile possible from longer fermentation periods). 
  • Includes a spacer cup which floats under the lid to collect brine overflow, exhaust gas, and maintain an air sequestered environment.
  • Includes a gasket ring to further seal the jar and pressurize the contents.


Includes a lid and grommet, s-style airlock, rubber gasket, spacer cup, 1/4 lb. Celtic sea salt, and instructions. Does not include the jar. Use with standard wide-mouth canning jars (specifically Kerr* and Ball* brands). Jars are generally available from your local variety-style department store in pint, quart, and half-gallon sizes.

BPA- and phthalate-free.

*Ball and Kerr are trademarked brand names of their respective manufacturers.

    • Can I use the Perfect Pickler to make Kefir (I have the grains) ?

    • Can I purchase the kit with an extra airlock lid assembly so I can ferment two different things at once or must I purchase two kits?
    • The Perfect Pickler is only a lid and airlock assembly. There is no jar included. You would need to purchase 2 Perfect Picklers to ferment two separate things at the same time.

I love this, and have used it twice already. It works very well, but it is NOT worth the price. It's too expensive for what it is. Shouldn't cost more than about $5.00

This was recommended to me by a friend. I did my first couple of batches of fermented veggies without it, and had to skim the mold off diligently. It was so nice to get the air lock setup and not have to worry about that. I also like the little overflow cup that helps push the veggies down a bit and raises the brine level up.

I have used a similar product in Germany and am sure this will work great. If it works, like it should, I'll be buying more.

What a good way to keep your sauerkraut out of the air yet it can still breathe. It's easy to make a jar full, put another lid on it and refrigerate, and start a new batch. I am not getting any scum on the surface of the kraut and when I had tried fermentation previously I always had to skim it off.

I have had great success make beet kraut twice now. We think it tastes better than the store bought. Love that I don't have to worry about slimy mold. I am planning on giving it as a gift to my friends for Christmas.
