Great concept, moderate execution.
By Hill Gardens

We got one of these and within 48 hours the lid cracked from the pressure build up. I contacted gardeners and they sent a new fermenter set to us to replace the lid. We got the new lid and decided to get rid of the xlcabbage because we were unsure if bad bacteria go in. Immediately began a bew batch of red cabbage, follwed directions again and after 10 days the pressure dislodged the lid again. It happened late at night so the liquid evaporated and mild grew on top of the cabbage. We have since stopped using this for fermenting food and just use the that for kombucha. We have changed to usomg mason jars with screw on fermenter lids. I would buy this again IF they made the lid screw on instead of pressure fit. I gaave this 4 stars because of how gardeners replaced it due to broken lid and it is a great concept. I would give 5 stars if the lid screwed on
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

LOVE it! After buying one, I bought more!
from Concord NH
Another awesome product from Gardener's Supply! My adult children live in different states, but our love of gardening keeps us connected. Both have large gardens now so we share photos, seeds, and ideas. After they raved about the Gardener's Supply hods I bought, I chose Kilner Fermenters for Christmas. This fermenter is strong, well designed and has no plastic parts. We all pickle a variety of vegetables to enjoy and share with others!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I would buy it again!
from Minneapolis, MN
This is a great, counter top sized fermentation kit. The jar holds more than I had anticipated but takes up little space. The weights and the bung and lid are an improvement over my use of rocks and towels and rubber bands.... I loaded it up and it started working in a day. Pretty to look at too. I recommend. Good gift idea.
