These weights are actually Weck reusable Glass Lids, but they can also be used as weights for fermenting purposes. Made of the highest quality glass, they contain NO BPA! (Bisphenol A), lead, mercury or cadmium.

Lids come in 3 sizes: small, medium and large. åÊSmall = 70mm/ 2 3/8", Medium = 90mm / 3 1/8", Large = 110mm / 3 7/8 ".åÊ

If you are using one of our Weck fermenting jars, choose small for the 1 litre jars and medium for the 1.5 litre jars.

For the Ball 2 litre jars and Fido jars you can use the small weight but due to the width of the shoulders there will not be a full coverage of the surface. åÊIn this instance you can use leaves such as cabbage leaves to cover the surface and then weight this with the small weight.

Note that the fit is tight and if you are fermenting very liquid foods, the weight will sink unless there is sufficient food mass in the jar to hold it up. åÊYou can also place a piece of cabbage leaf over the top of your ferment and then place the weight on top to ensure the entire surface is submerged.

Small approx 50g

Medium approx 85g

Fermenting jars & weights

I bought 3 of the Weck fermenting jars along with the Weck Dunking Weights. Absolutely love them, the wide opening on the jars are perfect for filling and the weights are brilliant.

Value for money

I used to make my saurkraut in a mason jar but it was not easy to maintain fermenting food in a good condition and failed sometimes. This 1.5L Weck Jar is so easy to handle and I am really happy with an airlock and a glass dunking weight. No more failure! Also thanks for the quick delivery :)
