Fermented foods are among the healthiest things we can eat… and with the Pickle Pipe, they are some of the easiest to make right at home. Start making your own sauerkraut, real pickles, kimchi (and more!) easily and effectively – without the hassles and costs of traditional methods.
From the Manufacturer
Fermented foods like sauerkraut, pickles, and kimchi are loaded with probiotics and incredibly healthy for you. Make them in small batch Mason jars to try out new recipes, and be efficient with your ingredients. The Pickle Pipe is the easiest way to start making your own fermented foods today.
As food ferments, it releases carbon dioxide in your jar. If not properly vented, your jar can actually explode! However, opening your jar will expose your ferment to mold-causing oxygen and other contaminants. The Pickle Pipe vents gas as needed, without letting anything in to spoil your food.
The patent-pending one-way valve automatically regulates the pressure in your jar. There is no maintenance or monitoring required, unlike traditional water-based airlocks.
It's just one piece. Screw it on with any standard Mason jar band, and that's it. Say goodbye to complicated multi-piece airlocks.
The low-profile design lets you ferment in tight spaces. Pop your Pipes in the dishwasher to clean, or hand wash in seconds. There’s nothing easier.
The Pickle Pipe is part of the Masontops family of fermentation products. Pickle Pebble glass fermentation weights, and the Pickle Packer vegetable tamper complete the fermentation dream team.
Describe your product in 3 words.
Easy to use.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
We are fermenters. We experienced first-hand the inconvenience of burping jars every day or maintaining water levels in 3-piece airlocks. We knew exactly the problem we were trying to solve.
What makes your product special?
Without the Pickle Pipe there is no way to ferment vegetables at home without checking in on them every day. This product makes home fermentation more accessible and enjoyable.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Meeting our customers before they were customers. Usually companies launch a product, then meet their customers. We had a unique opportunity to build a community and respond to their needs beforehand.

I bought these for fermenting cabbage, to make sauerkraut. I was excited to not have to open up the jar everyday and using these pickle pipes for emitting the gasses out- however mold grew on top of all the cabbage I was fermenting!! I thought well maybe the first batch was my error, so I did a 2nd batch and same thing mold! This has never happened to me before until using these Pickle pipes!
This is sooooo sad bc it takes quite a bit of time to cut up the cabbage, salt the cabbage, crunch the cabbage to omit the juices and then put the cabbage into the glass jars-
So hours of hard work, literally down the drain! Actually I dumbed it all into my compost for my organic garden.
You can see in all my photos there is mold and you can’t just scoop the mold off the top, you have to throw it all away bc if the mold is on top, it’s also in it.
I think these pickle pipes might work if you are ONLY fermenting for 1 week- BUT with sauerkraut you have to ferment for 4-6 weeks for proper fermentation.
Use with caution!
