Make it more than a Mason jar with Masontops.
The Mason jar fermentation dream team! This 9-piece tool set will make fermenting your own vegetables quick and easy, eliminating the risk of mold and the need to monitor your ferment on a daily basis.
The Pickle Pipe (4 included) is a super simple one-piece waterless airlock that allows gas to escape as necessary without letting any contaminants back flow into the jar, and it screws into place using any standard mason jar band. FDA food-grade certified, waterless, dishwasher-safe, and more compact... the Pickle Pipe is the natural evolution of the mason jar airlock. Once screwed into place, you can forget about the Pickle Pipe for days, or even weeks. There is no need to "burp" your jars manually each day, fumble with multi-piece airlocks, or monitor the "moat" of water-based airlocks. It is truly a "set and forget" solution. Pickle Pebbles have been specifically designed for use with fermentation and take the guess work out of your lacto ferments by ensuring your veggies stay below the surface of the brine thereby eliminating exposure to oxygen (which is the main cause of failure when using lacto fermenting methods).
Pickle Pebbles PLUS+ (4 included) are designed for use in wide mouth canning jars, and can also be used in traditional ceramic crocks. Dimensions: 2.75" diameter with 0.75" thickness. Pickle Pebbles are made of non-iridized soda glass which is completely inert and ensures that no other substances leach into your ferment.
The Pickle Packer (1 included) has been specifically designed for small-batch fermentation of sauerkraut and other veggies in both wide-mouth and regular-mouth mason jars. Measuring 10" tall, 2.5" at the wide end and 2" at the opposite end, our unique design allows both ends to be used for packing vegetables for your ferments. This allows the Pickle Packer to be used in a wide variety of fermenting jars and containers. Pickle Packers are made from all natural untreated Acacia wood.
BONUS! Fermentation & Recipe Guide included with every purchase! Instructions, information, and mouth-watering step-by-step recipes you can make today in a professionally written and produced guide.

The Right Tool for the Right Job.
1 PICKLE PACKER VEGETABLE TAMPER
Pound and pack vegetables into Mason jars with the Pickle Packer. The smooth hourglass design fits comfortably in your hand for a firm hold and eases the process of pounding out juices to create a proper brine for fermentation.
4 PICKLE PEBBLE GLASS WEIGHTS
Pickle Pebbles are specifically designed to hold fermenting food below the brine in Mason jars. This prevents exposure to oxygen—and subsequently mold growth—to ensure a delicious ferment, every time.
4 PICKLE PIPE AIRLOCKS
Pickle Pipes are a 1-piece, waterless airlock tool that automatically vents fermentation gasses so you don’t have to. This “set it and forget it” tool is the easiest to use and requires no daily maintenance.

vegetables below the level of the brine, keeping the veggies in their "probiotic bath" lol. The "pipes" let CO2 be expelled from
the fermentation jars so that you don't have to "keep an eagle eye on them". I highly recommend them.
I make a LOT of sauerkraut, and these items do a great job of preventing mold and other "nasties"
during the fermentation process.
The vendor sent me a follow up email, which is rare these days, to see how the product arrived and how I was enjoying it.
The pictures show my finished ferments (sauerkraut rear, kimchee front), and a "work around" with the plastic ball tops, in which I drilled a 1/2 in hole to
allow the "nipple" of the Pickle Pipe to protrude through and NO MORE RUSTED TOPS/RINGS! Seems to work out great!
Save yourself the money. You can make you own air lock lid by using a ¼ inch wood drilling bit to drill a hole into a plastic wide mouth mason jar lid, a ¼ inch rubber grommet normally used in the home brewing of wine and beer, and a twin bubble or 3-piece airlock to make a lid with an air lock. A 4-oz. mason jar makes a very good weight to keep the vegetables under the brine instead of the glass pucks provided in this kit. These small jars fits neatly inside the mouth of a wide mouth mason jar and once the lid is in place applies pressure to keep the veggies submerged just fine.
And let’s not get me started on the wooden stick. No doubt it is made from a sustainably harvested hard wood species, hand crafted using old world wood carving techniques and finished with an organic, gluten free, fair trade oil specially imported from a country the name of whose capital you couldn’t pronounce. But let’s face it, it’s just a stick. And when this wonder stick is not pounding vegetable its taking up room in your kitchen cupboard collecting dust. Just use an old-fashioned (French style) rolling pin without the handles on the side with which to pound your veggies… and bake more, you really should be baking more once you pick one up.
You can usually pick up the grommets and airlocks from your local brewing supply house for a reasonable price. And the rolling pin, lids, and wide mouth mason jars from almost any super store (oh yeah you will still need to buy mason jars, the kit don’t include that). If you don’t have a local brewing supply house buy them on Amazon.com just keep in mind you will pay about half again as much (or more) for the convenience and shipping.
My last word, don’t buy this. Get a drill and make your own fermentation kit.
Tamper--made things easy, nicely made; probably not absolutely required if you don't have space or spare money
Glass Weights--did their job perfectly BUT were a pain to remove
Silicone Lids--effortless fermenting; set the jar on a shelf and forget it for a few weeks
The wordy review:
I just opened my first jar of fermented sauerkraut last night using this kit and it turned out great! This is my first attempt at fermenting, so I'm not sure about the other options out there, but this couldn't have been easier to use. The hardest part (and it was just because it was time consuming) was shredding all the cabbage. I couldn't believe how much it took to fill that little jar (which is why I invested in a spiralizer--haven't used it yet with cabbage, but I'm hopeful that it speeds up the shredding process. A food processor would probably be good as well, but I wanted a spiralizer for vegetable noodles also). UPDATE 1/23/18--Used my Paderno spiralizer tonight to make batch #2 & 3 of sauerkraut and boy did that speed up the cabbage shredding time!
I went back and forth about purchasing the kit with the wooden tamper and I'm glad I finally decided to do it. I feel like it made the whole process go a little faster, which is important to me because it means I'll be more likely to use the kit over time. I'm sure there are work arounds to having the tamper if you are shy on funds or space in your kitchen, but I'm glad I've got it.
The glass weights in conjunction with a large leaf of cabbage worked great to keep the shredded cabbage below the brine level. I didn't have any pieces float above and mold. But I do have to say I was a little frustrated trying to remove it from the jar to see if it was done. I read a review that said they didn't have any problems removing these weights without the grips in the top (like other companies have) so I didn't worry about it much. As I was trying to pull the weight out with two steak knives shoved into the top of the jar, I might have said a swear word. Or two. They eventually came out, but it was not a smooth process. Anyone have a hint to make that part easier? I have the large mouth jars if that makes a difference. I'm considering making a sling of nonflavored dental floss that I can use to pull it out. It is the reason for knocking one star off--if I find a way to remove them easily I'll update my review and the stars. If I start fermenting a lot, I will probably be trying out some other options instead of these glass weights.
The silicone lids made the "watching" part effortless. I literally put it on a shelf in the pantry and let it go for 2 1/2 weeks. I don't know what the burping and water-lock systems require, but just peeking into the pantry to see what was happening to the sauerkraut was not hard work at all. And I could have forgotten about it during the 2 1/2 weeks and it would have turned out exactly the same! I don't know how this part could get easier than using these silicone fermenting lids.
