Mama O's Kimchi Making Kit

A Korean meal accompaniment made with fermented vegetables, kimchi is loaded with vitamins A, B and C and it makes for a delicious way to incorporate gut-friendly probiotics into your diet. With this kit, you can make perfect kimchi with less than 10 minutes of active prep time. The kit was developed by Brooklyn-based cook Khadeem Oh, who worked with his Korea-born mother to develop an all-natural kimchi paste that makes perfect small-batch kimchi every time. Kit includes one packet of kimchi paste and one glass jar with two lids-a fermentation lock to use during the fermenting process, and a solid lid for storing finished kimchi. One jar of paste makes approx. 1/2 gallon of kimchi from five pounds of cabbage or other fermentable vegetable. All natural and preservative-free. No MSG. Made in USA.

Made GREAT kimchi, & it was SO easy!
July 31, 2015
We made GREAT kimchi with this kit and it was SO easy! We used a variety of veggies from our garden: regular cabbage, Vietnamese herbs and greens, and cucumber, and it was great! The airlock works like a charm! The instructions were simple, clear and totally accurate, and I watched the great, short video on their site, too. When I PM'd Mama O's on Facebook for advice (could I use other vegetables, regular cabbage, etc.) they responded immediately! We now have 22lbs of cucumbers from our garden, & I'm buying more of their great kimchi pastes so we can make cucumber-ramp kimchi!! :-) I got this as a gift for my chef husband (and I), and we were both Very pleased with it- it's truly a GREAT kit to get as a gift for the "foodie" in your life!
Pros: Appearance, Design, Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Quality, Size, Weight, Assembly, Time-saver, material, Durable, delicious, fun, Great Gift

Easy enough
November 22, 2014
15 minutes in description is extremely optimistic, not that I expected it to be accurate. The process is easy enough but takes fifteen minutes to cut the cabbage. The next day process was 15-20 minutes. Didn't run a timer. I bought 5 lbs cabbage but didn't cut it all. Used about 2.5 lbs and had about an inch left in the jar. The gloves were large but not big enough for my hands. Try before hand as you may want to get an XL size. And they are not pre-talced. As stated above the process is easy and total time is less than an hour for homemade Kimchi. The real test will be in a couple of days. One addition, I boiled the water and let it cool for the brine. We only have chlorine so got rid of that impurity.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, material, Easy to Clean, Size
Cons: web time description
