Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day are Easy Weight – Fermentation Weights. I really like these things, though I have yet to order them. They started turning up in my sales reports and I have done enough research to recommend them.
Frankly the idea is so simple that it really doesn’t seem much could go wrong with it. In the past I have reviewed many products for fermenting in jars including the FermentEm 8-Piece Fermenting Kit and the Masontops Complete Mason Jar Fermentation Kit. Both are great products that let you ferment with standard mason jars. The MasonTops product also offers what they call pebbles, small round glass weights to hold your ferment under the brine, I have them, I really like them, but I don’t love them.
Why do I like them but not love them? Well, they are smooth and a bit hard to put in nice and level and a bit of a pain to remove as well, as they do fit so perfectly.
Frankly I think I am going to love the Easy Weight – Fermentation Weights because they offer the function of the pebbles with the added feature of something as rudimentary as a handle. This idea is so simple you wonder why someone didn’t do it sooner.
When you are fermenting the biggest rule to follow is “keep it under the brine and everything will be fine”. These guys let you do that and make it convenient too. At 21.99 per four they are quite affordable at about 5.50 a piece. Do note they only come in one size, wide mouth mason jars. Frankly I don’t use anything but wide mouth jars for fermentation anyway, so check out Easy Weight – Fermentation Weights today and make your fermentations even better than they already are.
