Fido fermenting jar is worth every penny!

I've been using the larger Fido fermenting jars (I have two) for a few years now and have found them to be a good size for home lacto fermentation recipes plus excellent quality.

We've made sauerkraut, all types of mixed vegetable lacto fermented foods, pickled cucumbers, pickled beetroot, and more. 

I would like the mouth of the jar to be slightly bigger because I have large hands it's a bit of a squeeze to fit my fist in the jar if certain foods (like cucumbers) need packing etc, however, this is only a small point.

Overall, I do recommend a Fido jar for pickling or fermenting foods in its own right or as a cheaper alternative to a fermenting crock.
