I've used it several times to make the fermented vegetables. They taste good and I can add them, as hoc, to any dish. My guests like them too.


Best fermentation vessel ever

I have used numerous fermentation vessels and I always smelled the fermentation process gasses. Thi did not smell it once. Love it and my other family members noses love it too.

Simply Great Design

I've been wanting to try fermenting vegetables for quite a while. I loved the kraut my son made, but needed my own supply. Finally, I saw this product and how simple and easy it could be. I've got my first batch of sauerkraut under way and can hardly wait to taste it! Even after one day, when I opened it to add a little brine to top it up, it already smelled like kraut! I like that the glass allows me to see what's going on in there, and that the container looks nice on the counter. I like that the water seal lets it breathe. I may end up with several of these so I can try more recipes faster. I'm so grateful this option is available now.


Mmmmm, kraut!

So far I've made kraut and fermented veggies. Both very good. I had to keep adding water and a pinch of salt to the kraut to keep it submerged so it came out too salty. I just rinse it before serving and it is really tasty and loses some of the saltiness.


Looking forward to the final product!

I bought one for my son and he says the saurkraut is awesome. My first batch is in the jar now.


Very satisfied

I just bought these Mortier Pilons and am doing my first batch of fermented vegetables (pickles). I wasn't sure whether to purchase the 2L or 5L version, so I ended up purchasing both. I figured that I will sometimes want to do more than one batch of fermented vegetables at a time, and if the 5L was more than enough for a particular batch, I don't need to fill it all the way.

I'm now really glad I bought the 5L. The 2L is way too small for a reasonable batch of pickles. The 5L is a decent size for that purpose. As much as I like pickles, I can see where I might store a finished batch in the fridge, and go through those while I'm making the next batch. I think the 2L will be perfect for smaller batches of other vegetables. I don't plan to can much, if anything, for long term storage, and I think the 2L will make amounts that are reasonable for refrigerator storage.

I've read some complaints in other reviews about the quality of these crocks. I see no problem with quality, whatsoever.

A couple reviewers had problems with the glass cracking after pouring in hot water to clean the crock. But, there are multiple warnings in the packaging and directions not to use extremely hot water.

I have little doubt that these crocks will produce great results, so long as the crocks and utensils are properly sterilized with warm water and vinegar, the directions in the recipe are followed, and troubleshooting steps are taken as needed.


Wonderful as a gift!

I bought two Mortier Pilons for both my mom and my niece. I had to exchange one because of a slight manufactoring issue. I had no problem with the exchange and it shipped fast! I love buying through The Grommet. As a self-employed artist, I know the importance of buying from the 'creators' whenever possible.
Thank you!

The Mortier Pilon Story

For healthier digestion, leave this on the counter.

Pickled Goodness

This fermentation pot will help you create nutrient-rich foods that are good for digestion . . . and it looks great doing it.

If you’re not familiar, fermentation introduces helpful bacteria, or probiotics, to balance your digestive system and help it absorb more nutrients. It’s an age-old food preservation technique that—without the right tools—can be as messy as it is beneficial. You put your foods in a type of brine (usually a mixture of salt, water, and vinegar), and a delightful chemical reaction happens.

Mortier Pilon creates the ideal environment for this biological transformation. This
vessel has a futuristic look with clean lines, but the design has a purpose. As the organisms inside begin to grow, they create gases. The water seal lets those gases escape, while also keeping air out. An included weight makes sure your veggies stay submerged under the brine and outside the reach of unwanted bacteria.

Get new recipe ideas fresh from the Mortier Pilon cookbook—like pickles and homemade sauerkraut. To keep track of your creations, update the rewritable label. To store your fermented foods in smaller batches, you can use their optional canning jars.

Whether you’re an expert or an amateur, this fermentation crock will get you asking, “Is that fermentable?”
