Don't ferment frequently so may have used them probably 10-15 times since then. Unfortunately the stainless steel discs have warped with use which was not expected but it doesn't affect functional. The silicone grommet has broken off on one of them and is basically not functional anymore. The plastic water air lock seems to still work but the material appears as if it will fall apart soon as well. Expected more longevity from the product given the brand and price point. 5 These Fermeter Kits are fantastic! Posted by Gerard on Feb 3rd 2019 I really love stainless steel over plastic so these are perfect for me! The Fermenter guide and the video they made are helpful for getting started fermenting in jars, I went to the internet for more tips and info on fermenting to get even better kraut batches! 4 The recipe/tips Manuel does not Posted by Betsy T. on Feb 19th 2018 The recipe/tips Manuel does not include all of the information you need to get going which is frustrating because there is a lot of different information online and i ruined my first batch of sauerkraut because the information left out important pieces. not excited about trying it again. the equipment seems good though. just wouldn't want to give this to a person as a gift if they didn't know much about fermentation to begin with. 3 Really not working as I had hoped Posted by Chrissy Bravo-Cullen on Feb 2nd 2018 I was excited to get my fermenting kit, but the lids have not worked as I had hoped. The white gasket is a pain to clean and makes the lid hard to open and close. The black gasket on one of my jars split apart the second time I used it. I'm going to try using just the ring and lid, minus both gaskets and airlock, to ferment, covering the top of the jar with plastic wrap and a rubber band. But I'm done with airlock lids. These were my second try. The white plastic lidded ones didn't work well either. 5 I love the fermenter kit! Posted by Brianna T. on Jun 26th 2017 So far I've done sauerkraut and dill pickles but I hope to get more adventurous this fall when I harvest my veggie garden :) Next This product is backed by our Guaranteed for Life promise!
