5 Reviews For "Pickle Pebbles - Glass Fermentation Weights - Standard Size - 4 Pack"

  1. wish they were a tad bigger, but generally very helpful

    by Betsy on 08 Sat,2016


    I use wide mouth quart jars, and the pebble could be bigger to fit those jars. I put a plastic lid in the jar, upside down, with the pickle pebble in it to weigh it down, and that worked well.

  2. The reason for differing reviews

    by Trish on 10 Mon,2016


    These work great, but NOT for less than full jars, like you'd have with the shorter pickling cucumbers. They simply sink to the bottom of the jar if they can find a weak spot (loosely packed spot like you'd have with pickles).

    However, when the jars are FULL (for like, for instance, beets for beet kvass) they work AWESOME. Soooo much better and easier than rolling up cabbage leaves that splash your brine all over.

  3. Wish I bought earlier

    by Kate on 07 Thu,2016


    These are a little pricey but I'm so glad I bought several sets. They hold everything down nicely and take the work out of folding cabbage leaves, finding the right size plate or marbles etc...They clean up beautifully too. Can't recommend these enough!

  4. Great product

    by Janine on 07 Tue,2016


    Very pleased with these. Much better than cabbage leaves and jelly jars. Got them on top of 4 quarts of pickles right now. Will buy again, if I manage to break them. I'm gifted that way.

  5. Helpful for fermenting

    by Lyndsay on 07 Sat,2016


    I'm new to fermenting. I did some trials using ziplock bags filled with water. I still had some mold and yeast issues with them, plus there was enough gap between the lid and the jar to attract fruit flies. I decided to try the Pickle Pebbles. So far they have worked very well, with none of the issues that I had with the ziplock bags. I'll keep working with these, and may get the larger ones for my quart jars if these continue to work well.

    • What size weights would be best with fido jars? Would the larger one work. I have this size and it seems small.
    • The large Perfect Pebble weights should work nicely but you might want to measure the opening of your particular Fido jar to be sure it will fit. The Perfect Pebbles are 2 3/4 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick.
