There are lots of cheap, weak, untempered glass fermentation weights on the market. They work, but I was sick of opening my ferments and finding them cracked in half. No one else makes tempered weights because it’s really expensive, but I wanted to make a product that lasts, for people who intend to use them for a lifetime. I made these for home fermenters who want the highest quality possible (and are willing to pay for it).

These heavy, tempered glass weights perfectly fit into a wide mouth Mason jar to hold your fermenting vegetables under the brine and press out any air pockets, leaving a tiny space around the edges to let out fermentation gasses.

Product Description

Tempering glass is expensive, but we think it's worth it. We have seen many glass fermentation weights that had air bubbles crack while in use.

These weights were designed to be the very best on the market for fermenting in wide mouth Mason jars. They are 68.5mm (2.7 inches) in diameter and 18.5mm (.73 inches) thick. They weigh 6 ounces each (170 grams).

The weights are cut from sheets of high quality tempered soda-lime glass. Mason jars themselves are made of untempered soda lime glass.

Most competing discs are not tempered, which is much cheaper to produce but less safe. Air bubbles and other imperfections in lower quality glass cause them to crack during use.

If you fill your jars up to the neck, one weight will perfectly cover your ferment. You can use more than one weight if the jar isn't completely full or if you want to displace more brine to bring the level up to the neck of the jar. With more active ferments, you might not want to fill the jar into the neck to avoid overflowing brine. Then you will probably want to use two weights.

Glass does not leach anything into your food.

Dishwasher safe, boiling water safe, oven safe, microwave safe. Avoid sudden temperature changes.

Plastic free packaging.

Weights

I've never tried fermentation before. This will be my first year. I can hardly wait. Just got my weights in last week, they are awesome. Now ready to start the garden.

Yay! Pickles on the way

My husband loves to ferment things and we had a bumper crop of cucumbers this year. They came in time for our next batch. He really liked them.

Weights are nice

I bought these to weigh down my fermentations in Fido jars. The diameter is the perfect size; I can get my fingers in the jar to easily lift it out. They are nice and heavy. I do wish they were made in the US instead of China but the company states they do hand sand the edges. They are very nice and I would buy again.
