When pickling and fermenting fruits and vegetables, the foods must be submerged in the brine to prevent unwanted microbes from growing on exposed areas. Stoneware Pickling Weights are designed just for this purpose and are sized to fit our 1-, 3- and 5-gallon Stoneware Pickling Crocks. The two semi-circular, heavy stoneware pieces are easy to insert and rest on top of food inside the crock, creating the downward pressure needed to keep foods submerged for proper fermentation.

A very practical and time saving tool for sauerkraut making.
Love these! Would buy more!
from San Jose, CA
I did not buy these for pickling--I bought these for making grape leaves. When you pack a pot for Boiling you need something to hold your food under the liquid so it cooks completely & this was it! well made and my Husband loved it!

Nice size and fits great
perfect fix for floating cucumbers
from Rochester, NY
Previously our cucumbers would float to the top of the brine and some mold would form which really grossed me out, but with these weights, the cucumbers remain immersed and we don't see mold while the cucumbers pickle evenly.

Best crock weights on the market!! Heavy and thick.Highly recommend this product and seller.
5 Gallon Crock weights.
from Plainwell Mi.
Place cabbage in crock press down with masher remove all air pockets.Place cabbage leaves over cabbage and place weights on top of product until liquid covers weights this the simplest and cleanest way to submerges cabbage during the fermenting process. Many of my friends said just get a plate and use a stone that has been boiled to sterilize it.That is all fine and dandy but you never know if that stone has been contaminated with Glyphosate s.For my family's safety I chose to purchase a brand new Made In The USA product.I am also investing in the Ohio Stoneware 3 gallon Crock next.I have nothing negative to say about this product.
Love my weights!
from Abingdon, Maryland
I can honestly say that I have never said I love my weights, Until now! They are fantastic. I made my first batch of pickles two weeks ago. These bad boy weights kept the pickles down in the crock where they belonged. There was no bobbing allowed. I highly recommend them. I'm going to make some saurkraut this weekend. It's great to be able to preserve the food you grew on your countertop! I'm a happy camper!!!!!!
Happy to find this product
We have a container we use for fermenting veggies and were thinking about buying a fermentation crock because of problems with finding the right system to keep the veggies submerged under the brind. The crocks are just a little more than we want to spend at the moment, so were thrilled to find these weights, which happen to fit perfectly in our existing jar. Thank You Gardener's.
