    • Hi,
      I have this jar from specialty bottle http://www.specialtybottle.com/widemouthcleargallonglassjar128ozwwhitemetallid.aspx

      Do you know if either of your lids would fit these threads? I would like to ferment kimchi in the jar with your lid, then just change to the original lid when it is time to go in the fridge.

      Thank you for your help
    • No, sorry, the replacement lids we carry are specifically designed for the Fermented Vegetable Master. They will not fit on other jars.

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • 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.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Kathy at 10/11/2012 9:10 PM
    • 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.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

    • 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.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Joyce at 9/11/2011 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.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

great product Review by Candace

I bought one of these lids to use on a regular gallon jar and am currently making a batch of sauerkraut. It fits perfectly and is working great so far!

CFH Note ~ The threads on the replacement lids are a little different and do not always fit on existing jars, so happy to hear you had one that fit!

Wonderful produst Review by Toby

This is the best deal for home fermentors. With the help of a 1/2 inch drill bit you can make these airlocks fit any lid you have. SAVE money buy these.

Better than the "Perfect Pickler" Review by Toby

Why pay so much for the 'Perfect Pickler" when this one work just as well at a fraction of the cost.

Note from CFH: We agree these are wonderful lids! Many people do choose the Perfect Pickler (http://www.culturesforhealth.com/perfect-pickler.html) as those lids are designed to fit standard canning jars, while the FVM lids do not fit canning jars of any size.

The makers of this 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 jars so you can perform experiments. The other thing is Review by Thomas Lemmen

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.

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.
