      Glass weights for regular jars

      Ordered these as I didn't have weights for a standard size canning jar. They seem to be a bit small. Used them with sliced peppers and some pepper rings floated up to surface and turning sideways. I ended up using my silicone discs. They will probably work well with a full and tightly packed jar. My jars were not. I am NOT unhappy with purchase.


      Helpful for fermenting

      I'm new to fermenting. I did some trials using ziplock bags filled with water. I still had some mold and yeast issues with them, plus there was enough gap between the lid and the jar to attract fruit flies. I decided to try the Pickle Pebbles. So far they have worked very well, with none of the issues that I had with the ziplock bags. I'll keep working with these, and may get the larger ones for my quart jars if these continue to work well.


      The reason for differing reviews

      These work great, but NOT for less than full jars, like you'd have with the shorter pickling cucumbers. They simply sink to the bottom of the jar if they can find a weak spot (loosely packed spot like you'd have with pickles). However, when the jars are FULL (for like, for instance, beets for beet kvass) they work AWESOME. Soooo much better and easier than rolling up cabbage leaves that splash your brine all over.

      work so well and easy to grab

      I love those glass weights for fermenting. They always work so perfectly. They submerge the ferment to keep it in the fluid and these ones are also easy to take out. Great product!

      Small and a bit pricey

      I liked the shape of the pickle pebbles, you can easily hold them, but unless you filled the whole jar and insert them at the mouth of the jar, they don't hold the pickles under water. If you do fill the jar and place the pebble on top of the contents, the juice spills out (when you use a standard mouth jar). The standard pickle pebbles don't work for wide mouth jars, at least not for the type of pickles I make. And I thought they were a bit pricey.

      Cultures For Health

      We're so sorry you're not completely satisfied with the Pickle Pebbles! Make sure to leave a little room at the top so the brine doesn't overflow. They do tend to work better when you fill your jars pretty full but you can use a pint jar if you can't fill a whole quart jar. We also carry two different sizes - wide mouth and standard!
