Did you know, correctly packing your fermentations releases the natural juices. The flat ends of our muddler are designed for lightly pounding vegetables, to gently break down their cell walls. It removes air bubbles and draws out the moisture. This is key to getting you off to a great start.
Made from Beechwood, our hand-crafted muddler features an ergonomic grip and a wide base that's ideal for packing generous quantities of sauerkraut, kimchi or giardiniera into the jars.
Get some tips on how to ferment sauerkraut in this video featuring our Managing Director, Grace Mazur and our Executive Manager - Health and Nutrition, Bianca Mazur.

You can also use your muddler to create combinations of fruit and mint infused water or cocktails...anyone say mojitos!
Hand wash with warm soap and water only. After use, dry thoroughly. Occasional oiling using a food-safe mineral oil could help to lengthen the life of this product. Not dishwasher safe and should never be allowed to stand in water as it may damage the wood.
Each end is 5.5cm
The thinest point (middle section) is 3cm
The length is 25cm
Great size, however it soaks and retains liquid like a sponge. Bit dodgy for a product meant to be used with fermented foods - big chance for contamination. Dry really well between uses; and oil if possible. Wouldn't recommend.
Loved the muffler! Made it so much easier when making fermented carrots and sauerkraut.
Hi Jo, we also love it for muddling cocktails! Enjoy!
This was a lovely addition to the fermentation crock - well made. I think it is probably essential for breaking down the cabbage to start the process. Really pleased I ordered it with the crock.
Order by mistake 😱 not sure what to do with it
Oh no Cristina, accidents happen. Our wooden muddler is perfect if you are into fermentation, it is great for mashing the ingredients and making sauerkraut, kimchi or giardiniera. We also love using it to make cocktails. However, if you are not happy our team will be in touch to talk you through the return process. Hope that helps.
