    • 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.

    • 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.

  • From Uni Hong at 8/22/2011 2:15 PM
    • 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.

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.
