Just wanted to come back and say the clay pot worked brilliantly with my broccoli sprouts. I had several previous attempts in a glass jar where I lost half of them down the sink, struggled to drain them properly and ended up with them smelling bad unless I religiously rinsed them four times a day. The (GAIA) sprouter is effortless by comparison – if you add a bit of water it washes through and I left them for 48 hrs while away for work, and they grew perfectly in my absence. Just need a final few hours with the lid off in a sunny spot to turn them green. So it was a great investment – I can now grow my own vegetable in 3-4 days, and I’ll keep doing it because it’s no trouble. I hesitated a bit before I bought it because obviously there are cheaper sprouters out there, but now I’m sure it was the best one to go for. Kate, UK
Within a week of having this clay sprouter, it became one of the indispensable items in my kitchen! I used to sprout in a jar, which was cumbersome. Now sprouting is easy peasy. And since there are 2 containers, you can stagger your harvest for non-stop sprouts. Simply put, I LOVE this!!!!!
The brown GAIA sprouter not only looks beautifully on my kitchen worktop, but it is also a very useful tool to deliver the right nutrition on my table. The sprouter came with an easy to understand manual of how to use it and clean it, and I have had no problems with sprouting all different kinds of seeds. The clay trays work perfectly by retaining just enough water to feed the seeds/sprouts; no mold or rot have ever occurred.Since the purchase I have been using the sprouter regularly and adding the sprouts to most of my meals.
I have previously used a few of the different plastic sprouters available with poor results and ended up needing to throw too many batches of spoiled seeds away. I do find my glass jar one fiddly to use, but very good for alfalfa sprouts. On considering the price my GAIA sprouter was a bit of an indulgent purchase. I am very pleased with it and the sprout harvests. My mixed bean sprouts were beautifully fresh. It’s easy to irrigate the seeds and clean the trays. I plan to experiment sprouting grains as I don’t fear wastage from the sprouts drying out or turning fusty. It is very good quality product and it looks really cute on my worktop!
We received our handcrafted sprouted and it is beautiful with it’s rich terra-cotta and green glaze (what an amazing wrapping job!) At first, I was concerned that it was so small, but it is actually just what we need. It fits into the small space we have on our counter perfectly. And all I need do is soak the mung beans over night and leave them a day or so I have plump and tasty sprouts to enjoy – no rinsing needed I will try experimenting with other kinds of seeds. Thank you so much for your help with this. We must spread the word for such a high quality product.
I think the sprouter is the best I have ever had, it makes really wonderful tasty sprouts. …the price is quite reasonable for such lovely hand made item. It is superior to my old plastic sprouter both aesthetically and in performance.
I’ve been sprouting for many years now as it’s a superb way of producing fresh salad veg in your own kitchen, even when it’s freezing out of doors. My partner recently asked me with a wry smile how many different sprouters I’d collected over the years… I do have several, I admit, but these clay ones are by far the most appealing to look at. They provide a lovely moist, dark place for getting many sproutlets started and they look so pretty on your kitchen worktop. Just leave the lid off to get some green into them as a final step before eating them, or rinsing and storing in the fridge for later. Yum.
FINALLY!! Gem of a sprouter. Works great. Looks Fab!
I’ve had many, many sprouters in my day. Mason jars, ceramic dishes, plastic dishes, plastic cups, bags, fancy automatic mister, etc. Those all worked fine, but after using the Gaia Sprouter, I don’t think I’ll ever use another, this is IT! And this is why, jars, bags, glass dishes, plastic dishes, they all work “ok” but I always found it a constant chore to keep the seeds happily damp and rinsed. Jars dry out fast and are hard to drain since all the seeds clog the top of the strainer, bags are ok but they get a bit…’ew’ since the bag material is also taking on water all the time. Glass dishes, again sure, great but often they don’t have a dedicated cover and again, quick drying. Plastic cups and dishes, meh. The automatic 5 tray mister worked amazingly well but it was large, softly audible and water levels have to be monitored plus SO many sprouts, more than I (and the chickens) could handle (although you could rotate grow schedule). After donating all those to willing newbie sprouters, I again was buying sprouts in plastic bags, I thought ok, this just isn’t cool. I did some research and found the…Gaia Sprouter and thought this makes a lot of sense plus it looks fantastic, small, stylish, efficient. And boy, does it work great! It truly is the fired clay that keeps the humidity perfect inside. Rinse once a day and forgot about it. I also found through the years sprouts really do prefer dark environments until you green them and again, this sprouter does just that. Small seeds will slip through the drain holes until they sprout tails however, round paper discs are included to prevent this. I found landscape cloth to work better than the paper discs. The cloth allows a quicker drain and it’s reusable over and over (but it is synthetic so there is that). I’ve sprouted sunflower, microgreens, alfalfa, lentils, oat groats, chia, flax and buckwheat in this gem and highly recommend it. Yes, it is more $ than a mason jar or bag but, the results are worth it and you will have it for many years. It’s a fantastic, high quality, carefully made item, shipped quickly in well protected, all recyclable cardboard packaging. Makes a great gift that keeps giving
