The Handy Pantry Jar Top Fermenter solves the expense and large batch challenges by making it possible to ferment reliably in wide mouth canning jars. Folks have used canning jars for ever, but the big challenge is that the lactic acid fermentation process gives off lots of C02 (carbon dioxide) and this pressure must have a way to escape but not let any oxygen into the system. This is very difficult trick with just canning jars, require lots of baby-sitting. Even then, oxygen invariably sneaks end leading to problems with mold, bad flavor or even spoiled batches.
With the innovative but simple one-way air lock, you can seal a canning jar with your pickling vegetables keeping it free of oxygen, but allowing the built up C02 to escape easily. The process is simple, fun and delicious.

One of the beautiful things about the jar top fermentor is that you can use more than one unit and have different batches fermenting at the same time. Now you can enjoy the amazing health benefits of real, homemade, lactic acid fermented vegetables affordably with small managable batches.

Works greatI've been fermenting this way for some time. However if you buy a box of Tattler canning jar lids, go to the wine supply shop and get some fermentation locks then drill holes in your lids to fit the rubber cork (a step drill works best) you'll spend less than half the money of a preassembled setup.
