Description

Details

Whether you are making lacto-fermented pickles, peppers, carrots, or another fresh vegetable from your garden, it's critical to keep those vegetables under the brine and away from oxygen. These fermentation weights are the perfect size for keeping your fermented veggies submerged! Use one at a time or stack them for extra weight (though one is usually enough!)

  • Each box includes 4 pebble fermentation weights
  • Material: Made of lead-free, food-grade, non-porous, and non-iridized soda glass (verified ferment-safe and lead-free)
  • Available in 2 sizes: Pickle Pebbles for regular-mouth jars & Pickle Pebbles PLUS for wide-mouth jars (see dimensions below).
  • Pair with the Pickle Pipe Airlock for the simplest vegetable fermentation.

 

Dimensions:

  • Pickle Pebbles: Diameter: 2 1/4 inches | Thickness: 1/4 inch | Fit inside both regular and wide mouth canning jars.
  • Pickle Pebble PLUS: Diameter: 2 3/4 inches | Thickness: 3/4 inch | Fit inside wide-mouth canning jars.

 

Care Instructions:

Be sure to clean your Pickle Pebbles before each use. (This prevents contaminants from interfering with your ferment.) Hand washing in warm water only takes a few seconds, but they can also be cleaned in the top rack of a dishwasher. If using the dishwasher, avoid the extreme heat such as a steam setting. Do not boil your Pickle Pebbles.

    What a great company! After CFH read my previous review about one weight being broken, they contacted me and were only too happy to send me a replacement set. So all in all was a great Company to work with.

    Greatly helped making my cultured/pickles vegetables a success.

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

    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.

  4. The reason for differing reviews

    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.

  5. Wish I bought earlier

    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!

    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.

    These are exactly what I expected. They are perfect weight to hold down food for fermenting.

  8. Helpful for fermenting

    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.

  9. Dangerous

    I purchased 8 of these glass weights and I have 2 left. The other 6 split in half or cracked while doing their job in the ferment jars sometime during the fermentation process.

    Response from CFH: Oh dear! Please contact us immediately on our website so that we can assist. This is something that should be reported to the manufacturer if these are being used properly.

  10. the weights work well if not broken

    I would have rated it higher, but one weight was broken when it got here. They are pricey any way and when one is useless, that makes them really pricey.



    Response from CFH: We are terribly sorry about that! Please contact Customer Support and we'd be happy to replace defective items.
