Product Description

Stainless Steel Screen. Fits a wide mouth mason jar. The screen does not rust - what rusts is the metal rim that screws onto the jar. The metal rim is made of an alloy that contains metals which rust. Use a little bit of olive oil on the rim to protect the screen from the alloy metals.

$8.75 for this is insane. Get yourself an cheap splatter screen (at Walmart) use the top from a wide mouth mason jar lid (not the ring), use a washable marker to trace around the top, cut it out, wash any marker ink that may be there and presto, you have a sprout screen!

The rust comes from wetting the metal bands that come standard with the mason jars, not this stainless steel screen. Solution: Cut a 3 inch diameter hole in a plastic lid. (Search: "Ball Wide-Mouth Plastic Storage Caps" on Amazon for the lid.) I use a 3" hole saw to make the cut. (Be careful with whatever method you chose to make the cut!) Insert screen into plastic lid. Screw lid on to jar. Use to your heart's content. No rust. Problem solved.

I cannot recommend this product. I bought a few, excited to try my hand at sprouting.

Well, today is the 3rd day, and the sprouts have been doing well! The alfalfa outgrew the clover and mung beans, so I decided to harvest some of it. Imagine my disgust when I unscrewed the lid and found that the screen had turned black along the edge! I wouldn't call it rust -- it's not red -- more like some less-friendly oxidation. (Nickel? Chromium?) And the black wasn't just some surface-finish, but a fine powder. I tried eating some of the sprouts, but couldn't, because they had a very strong metallic taste. Possibly poisonous, but definitely not wholesome. What a waste of my first batch of sprouts.

I won't be deterred from this little hobby, but I'm going to pick up some of the plastic perforated lids instead.

Notes: The edges are rough-cut, not finished or folded over. Also, if you do decide to ignore my recommendation and buy this product, it is designed to fit a widemouth jar.

I don't know if it is the ring causing the rust or the sprouting screen(probably is the ring but I dont have anything else to use with it), but mine also rusted around the edges the first use and was dripping brown liquid when draining. I also bought some plastic screw on lids and I prefer those now. The seller did ship very fast though. They should sell these with a stainless screw on ring to go with it.

I have purchased this item more than once, to add to a wide mouth canning jar, which I then give as gifts to friends. Sprouting lets people who don't garden grow a small portion of their food. It is a healthy learning experience. I prefer these metal screens to plastic ones (there is enough plastic in the world, already).
This product worked exactly as expected. It fits in the round, screw on portion of the canning lid, and drains the water out of the jar without losing the sprouts. Sprouting jars make a great project for children, and while you can buy both lid and jar on Amazon (complete with seeds), you might find it less expensive to just order the lid, and use a jar you already have.
Over time, people have lost connection to the food they eat. It's a connection that I feel is important, and that should be re-established. Sprouting is an excellent way to begin to reconnect. I definitely would recommend this product.

I bought both this screen and the green plastic screen that substitutes for a mason jar lid. This screen works better in that you can fill and empty easily...no sprouts leak through...water goes right through the lid full force...excellent for rinsing sprouts. But, after only a week some rust started to appear at the edges of the screen under the lid. Too bad it's not treated or of a material to resist rust. The green lid is plastic, no rust. But you have to unscrew it each time to fill the jar with water and put the lid back on to pour the water out.

this screen is the perfect size,even for smaller seeds.they are also a great way to reuse old canning jars for other purpose.why buy an expensive seed sprouter when you can reuse items around the house.this is the second one i bought.and i will buy more.it fits large mouth jars nicely,and stainless steel means "it won't rust". the only items you need to for great tasting sprouts are seeds,jar,screen and water, and in a few days you get.......FOOD.

Maybe it is the metal rings I have and since the jar is on it's side , but, these really need a plastic open ring so the rust doesn't creep onto the screen from the ring.
I couldn't get the rust off by washing so will have to hit it with the wire wheel.
