What is the Pickl-It Dunk'R?

Our specially-designed Dunk’R holds the vegetables under the brine! We’ve tested a lot of contraptions over the last half-dozen years – and the Dunk’R is just right!

What is the Pickl-It Airlock?

The airlock is an important component of the Pickl-It system, creating a low-oxygen, or, anaerobic environment, in which lactic-acid bacteria thrive and remain healthy! Oxygen is NOT desirable, working against creating healthy fermented-foods.

Is there lead in the Pickl-It wire-bail or glass container?

There is no lead in the Pickl-It wire-bail metal closure OR its glass container, both manufactured by Bormioli Rocco, in business since 1825.

What is a Pickl-It Plug'R?

  • The tastes of your Pickl-It kraut is fresh and tangy. It isn't overwhelming like the horribly sour commercial kraut I had been buying.  Your Pickl-It kraut is a food I crave and I'm so grateful to you and your product.  Thank you!
