Excellent!These are such great jars! I’m new to sprouting and these are perfect. Since they are large, it’s easy to get the seeds to spread out. The mesh screen is the perfect size and none of the seeds fall out when you rinse and drain them. I’ve recommended these jars to my family and friends and hope they start sprouting too.
I started using this half gallon jar immediately after receiving it! I sprouted mung bean (in the photo) and it worked! I will sprout another batch of broccoli seeds next! I added a pinch of citric acid to prevent mold. The mesh cover is absolutely perfect for rinsing easily without losing some of the beans.
These jars are BIG. They're really good quality, made of glass and the lid is stainless steel with a screen top to drain water easily. I used it the first time to sprout 1.5 tablespoons of broccoli sprouts in one jar and 1.5 tablespoons of zesty sprouts in another jar and there was plenty of room in both after sprouting. I assume it can comfortably sprout double the amount. I will try that next time. Very nice jars. It also comes with a little sprouting guide and recipe booklet.
The germination process takes 4 days. As much as my husband is always skeptical of my experiments on the topic of healthy eating, he also liked the broccoli sprouts. It is desirable to use them in 1-2 days, which we did with pleasure. It turned out to be very convenient for me to germinate in a jar, I am thinking about buying a second jar so that the seedlings are not transferred on our table every day. I highly recommend it to all lovers of fresh greens.
This jar is absolute perfection, and it’s so easy to use, I cannot believe I ever grew my sprouts without the jar. I love the fact that it is glass, and the lid does not rust at all. Super easy to just toss in the dishwasher whenever it needs to be washed. I also love the size of the star and how nice enlarge it is. Perfect for my Sprouts.
These are great on so many levels. First, NOW Foods was, I think, the first company to provide home sprouters with a jar made for sprouting! Notice the wide mouth? It allows a full jar of sprouts to slide out easily when it's harvest day! Best and just about the only glass jar of its kind out there. I've been buying these for decades! Makes great gifts for people who want to eat better on a budget! A quarter cup of smaller sprouting seeds fills this up nicely! When I harvest a batch, I wash the jar out and start the next batch. That way, I always have plenty of these lovely healthful sprouts on hand for every meal and smoothie! Thanks, IHerb for stocking so many nice sprouting seeds and jars!
I order 4 sprouting jars. They are perfect! sprouting it is really easy with these jars, they eliminate the use of extra tools such as strainers. Just add your seeds, soak, wash and see magic happen in the jar. In addition I had a great experience shopping with Iherb! Fast shipping free shipping and the jars were pack with care.
