Fido Jars and Fermentation

Ok.. this has been a touchy subject on many blogs for a long time. There is so much mis-information about this subject – and so many warning posts I have made over the last few years have been edited for those wishing to push one agenda or another that this post is necessary here on our website.

IF you ferment – these are GREAT jars – among the strongest on the market  – but meant to have a VENT – not to self vent…  PERIOD … no arguments – no rebuttals –  I have been distributing the FIDO brand for  3 decades …. and I state for the record – they are NOT meant to “self vent” by stretching the metal rings.  I have heard so many “I always do this” and “I never heard of a jar exploding from this” …  well for the record  – there are millions of these sold a year worldwide – and I can assure you that we DO hear of the mis-use and the problems associated with using the jar in a manner it was not designed for.  These jars are made for canning – and can be used in the hot bath process – as well as stored in the fridge or freezer.  They are meant to hold , not vent,  pressure unless a vent kit is used.

So – the short and sweet of it – we LOVE to sell you this product – we love the fermentation business – but unless you choose to drill the lid and install a vent or buy a vent system (many companies offer a kit)  – you do so at your own risk, as you are using the jar in a manner it was not intended to be used.

On a final note – I have heard nonsense every place I post,  about the relationship of our company  to Pickl-it (one such supplier of vented jars and lid kits)  from people who attempt to debunk my warning above. As a few admins on those blogs point out – this is a ridiculous contention – we are a large supplier to the industry for many many years – and though we have a wonderful relationship with Pickl-it and they are a valued customer – we do not play favorites in our pricing or supply chain….. we sell the same FIDO jars to the Smithsonian Museums for usage in storing artificats – we are a business that welcomes any and all customers.

When used properly – FIDO jars (and ONLY Bormioli Rocco makes FIDO jars by the way) are a wonderful product for your fermentation and storage needs  – none better on the market.

We welcome your orders here on our website .. and happy fermenting!
