I just finished my first batch of sauerkraut and brown mustard seeds (two different things, lol) and couldn’t be pleased more with how hassle-free it is. I used to carefully cover my kraut with a big cabbage leaf and put weights on top, but it would still overflow and cause a mess as it fermented. I was always fighting to keep everything under the brine. With ChouAmi, I didn’t have to think about it at all, and the spring kept the kraut from overflowing or coming out of the brine. i would definitely recommend ChouAmi to a friend and may be buying more in the future!
We're glad to hear you find ChouAmi so easy to use Stephen! The spring-loaded engineering that keeps all contents beneath the brine is definitely one of our proudest features. Enjoy your kraut with mustard seeds!
The ChouAmi component is incredibly well made and functional to the extent that it makes the fermenting process so easy and mistake proof. I also live using the Le Parfait jar with its easy access shape.
I had ordered the ChouAmi Kit and in shipping the jar had broke. I sent and email asking about the shipping policy and getting the jar replaced. I was answered right away - on a Sunday. The jar was sent out right away and I recieved it in good condition. A day after receiving the jar I got a follow up email asking if my shipment arrived in good condition. This is the best customer service I think I have ever had.
Thanks Lynette! We're glad to hear you were very satisfied with the quality of our customer service. We wish you luck with all your fermentation projects!
I had purchased this kit for myself and one for my sister.
Once my niece, who is Vegan, saw her Mom's kit and knew of
Chou Ami from me, then of course she said "I want one". So now she has one.
I really like the ChouAmi fermenter. I have been making my own sauerkraut for a couple of years now, but just recently bought the ChouAmi. I had previously been using weights in the top of the jar and the method where you leave the lid just slightly loose to allow release of pressure. The sauerkraut that I made in the ChouAmi tasted better to me. So ended up buying two more on the holiday special. Will be using them for many years to come.
We're very proud of our spring-loaded weight solution, and we're glad you agree Tracy! Thanks for adding more ChouAmi units to your kitchen.
