Known as the CPO (Chief Pickling Officer) at Masontops, Mike is sweet on all things sauerkraut, kimchi and pickle. And he wants you to be, too. He knows fermentation can be a science experiment some would rather avoid, which is just what inspired Masontops. Every product is born from a frustration or void Mike and his team experience in their own fermentation adventures. The behind-the-scenes crew of engineers, inspectors and designers think through the hard stuff and produce simple fermentation tools that lead you to believe: yes you can. Nothing pickles his fancy more than hearing Masontops jars and tools got somebody hooked on the probiotic goodness of fermentation.
