Returned the item because of the lightweight disc.


Good Luck with opening these

9/14/2016 by Vart

The crock is beautiful and comes in a lovely box. The concept is great too as it allows bubbles to escape without allowing air in. The only problem is that I cannot taste the pickles I made because neither me nor anyone in my family can open the jar! The lid is round and slippery and so is the body. I tried rubber bands, rubber gloves, silicon pads - cannot get it to open. I would love to hear if the inventors have a solution for me short of breaking it.

From the Maker:

Hi Vart,
Thank you so much for your review. We are sorry to hear that you had
troubles using our jar.
If you have difficulties to open the jar, you can also try to place the edge of
a utensil (like a spoon) under the lid of the jar, and apply a bit of force to
the utensil like a lever. You can try to do that in different spots on the jar,
and then try to open it again.
We are also in the process of redesigning the lid to simply pop off/on and
not screw.

I bought this for my niece. She tried to make the sauerkraut recipe and checked it after a week to find her cabbage covered in mold. What went wrong?


Weak Glass - Dissapointed

7/7/2017 by Terry

Lovely "looking" crock. It cracked in 3 places when the hot water hit it when sterilizing. Too bad I was really looking forward to using this.

From the Maker:

Hi Linda,
We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your jar.
When sterilizing the jar, it is better to use lukewarm water and vinegar instead
of boiling water.

Nice notion

I bought this to see how well it worked with the intention of gifting my son if it worked well. I didn't like it. The insert didn't hold all of the vegetables under water. It is pretty. Nice try.

From the Maker:

Hello Roberta,
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with
your jar.

The ceramic weight should fit in the crock and be large and heavy enough to
keep your food below the brine.
Please contact [email protected] if you
have any other questions; we’ll be happy to help you!


Did a poor job first time

Could not ferment cabbage. Thought it would be the easiest for first try. Went moldy after a few days. Will try something else but I really don`t like to waste food.

From the Maker:

Hello Ann,
Thank you for your review. When fermenting any kind of vegetables in
your jar, it is important to first sterilize the jar with lukewarm water and
vinegar before using it. It is also important to make sure that your food is
always kept below the brine to prevent mold. This is accomplished using
the ceramic weight that comes in the kit.
If you have any other issue with one of our products, please contact [email protected]; we’ll be happy to help you!


Weird Pickles

5/4/2017 by Lori

I've used it twice to attempt pickles and both times my pickles turned out hollow inside! They were filled with air and inedible as a result. I'm afraid to attempt it again. I would love to know what happened and if there is something I can do to fix the problem!

From the Maker:

Hi Lori,
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you were not
satisfied with your jar.

Sometimes using cucumbers that are too large for brining can result in
hollow pickles once fermented. In that case, you can try to use smaller
cucumbers. Also make sure to keep the lid is on tightly during the
fermentation process.
If you have any question on the jar or how to use it, please feel free to
contact [email protected]; we’ll be happy to
help 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?”
