Bormioli is known for its industry-leading innovation, design, and commitment to high-standards, exceeding California 65 safety standards. While California 65 allows for “acceptable” levels of lead, Bormioli has taken the position that lead is not an acceptable ingredient in food-related products.

I make old-fashioned pickles, the same way my mother did. I’m even using her old crocks. A friend, who doesn’t even like to cook, like I do, showed me your Pickl-It. At first, I thought it was for only beginners, and had nothing to offer me. But she’d made pickled broccoli, green beans, and I guess even some pepper mash that you told her about. I tried some of it, and it had a nice, clean, fresh taste. Where can I order a Pickl-It for myself?
