How Does ChouAmi Work?


All ChouAmi™ parts are made of high-quality stainless steel which are dishwasher safe, non-reactive to salt or acid, and built-to-last.

The patented ChouAmi design:

  • keeps fermented foods submerged beneath the brine,
  • allows carbon dioxide gas to escape safely,
  • permits room-temperature process, at home,
  • maintains an anaerobic environment for successful fermentation.

See how ChouAmi works in action:


How to have a successful lacto-fermentation:

    • Carbon dioxide produced by the fermenting microbes must be released. If not, the container may actually explode.
    • Fresh air and oxygen must be kept out because the health promoting lactobacilli bacteria are anaerobic.
    • The vegetables must be kept completely submerged in the saltwater brine because exposed vegetables that float to the top can start to spoil.

    Other benefits:

    • Convenient. It fits onto a glass preserving jar, so when your fermentation is complete, simply remove ChouAmi, attach the screw lid and place in the fridge for storage.
    • Stylish. It has a sleek elegant design that looks good on your counter top.
    • Durable. It's made from heavy gauge stainless steel.
    • Food safe. Stainless steel and glass are two of the safest materials.
    • Reliable. Produces batch after batch of gourmet lacto-fermented vegetables and fruits consistently.
