We have made a great amount of ferments over the years at KoruKai Herb Farm and used a fair bit of pounders. We know what makes a pounder fabulous.
This one is made to our measurements by a local Akaroa woodturner and is well-designed for pounding vegetables and tightly packing them into jars or crocks for best fermentation.

A local Akaroa woodturner makes these pounders for us. The wood is untreated, natural silver beech and is finished with a natural vegetable oil.
It is used to pound vegetables to draw out their juices and also to tightly pack them into jars for best fermentation. Well-designed 2 ends allows to fit perfectly into wide and regular mouthed jars.
Measurements: length 35cm, top diameter 4.5cm, bottom diameter 6cm. Easy and comfortable grip with a tapering of 3.5cm diameter.
Please note: Measurements can vary slightly as each one is handmade and unique. Colour is darker after oiling than the one in the picture. If you are not happy with variations of a natural wooden product in colour or shape please do not buy this.
