Easy Sprout Sprouter


About The Easy Sprout

BPA Free

Our favorite all-purpose sprouting device, the Easy Sprout has: Excellent Drainage, Superior Air-Circulation and is the most forgiving sprouter ever designed. Devoted Sproutpeople everywhere worship it.

What would Jesus sprout (in)? @;~)

We have well over a dozen Easy Sprouts in our home. We have used them, almost exclusively for many years. They're extremely durable, easy to clean, dishwasher safe, will sprout virtually any seed, compensate for hot, humid conditions with a dynamic air-flow design, and are inexpensive.

Easy Sprout is 3 1/4 inches on the bottom and 4 1/2 inches on the top. It is 7 inches tall.  It has a 1 liter/quart capacity. It is made of High Density Polyethylene (Fortiflex® T50-3600 HDP) - which is one of the few non-leaching plastics.  The Easy Sprout is also Kosher - we kid you not.

It came to the inventor Gene Monson in a dream, in the late 1970's. He has spent his life since, spreading the word of Easy Sprout.

The Parts:

1) Growing Vessel 2) Base (solid) 3) Small Seed Insert 4) Dome Lid 5) Flat (storage) Lid 6) Flat Vented Travel Lid (not pictured) It looks exactly like #5, but it has holes in it.

Growing Capacity One Quart. It can produce up to 1 pound of Leafy Sprouts or 2 pounds of Bean or Grain Sprouts.

Excess water drains into the solid base (though you still need to drain thoroughly), so you can leave it anywhere without worrying about making a mess.

With the snap on Vented Flat Lid (which looks just like #5 in the picture above, except that it has holes in it) and a simple re-design which allows great air circulation even with the Growing Vessel sitting down in the Solid Base, you can take your Easy Sprout(s) everywhere you go. Now you can Easy Sprout while travelling!

Seeds to Sprout In the Easy Sprout

The Easy Sprout is able to sprout just about any seed well. That is a big part of why we recommend it so highly.

These seeds are a Perfect match for the Easy Sprout:

Leafy Sprouts -Alfalfa, Clover and Mixes - All

Brassicas - Broccoli, Radish, Mustard, Cabbage, etc.

Beans - Adzuki, Garbanzo, Lentils, Peas, etc. (see Mung Note below)

Mung Beans - Of all our sprouters, Easy Sprout is by far the best for growing big, thick rooted Mung Beans. One of the keys to growing these is the ability to apply weight directly to the growing beans. We use a second Easy Sprout's Solid Base and Solid Lid, to hold water. It makes the perfect weight, and it fits perfectly into the Growing Vessel in which the beans are sprouting.

You should soak 1 cup of Mung Beans if you want to grow the biggest thickest roots as the mass created by the high volume of beans will aid in the root growth.

Exotics - Garlic, Dill, Fenugreek, Onion, etc.

Grains - Amber Waves, Wheat, Oats, Barley, Spelt, Rye, etc.

Nuts, Seeds and Pseudograins - Market Mix, Almonds, Pumpkins, Peanuts, Sunflower, Buckwheat Groats, Quinoa, etc.

Critter Sprouts - Big Bird, Mid Bird, Lil Bird, Dr. Bird, 4 Legs of Love

Pre-Sprout The Easy Sprout is also a great Pre-Sprouter for: Grass, Greens and certain Micro-Greens.

Possible but Silly:

The Easy Sprout is a great Pre-Sprouter for these items, but it is not designed to grow these crops to completion:

Grass - Neither Grass nor Greens will grow well, in the Easy Sprout, but it can be a fun experiment. Grass will grow without soil and can stay moist in the Easy Sprout - and get quite tall. It takes longer without soil, but in theory you can juice the entire mass (grass, grains and roots) so it may be worth a try - just for the fun of it.

These Greens can work as an experiment:

Buckwheat Lettuce Pea Shoots Radish Greens

The depth of the device is the only issue, but they all grow fairly well without soil, so give it a try if you're looking to EXPERIMENT.

Difficult to Impossible:

Other Greens and Micro-Greens will not work well - even as an experiment. Most require more horizontal freedom and some (the sunflowers especially) do much better with soil. But - don't let us stop you from trying! You should remember that some of the Micro-Greens are mucilaginous and therefore form a sticky gel sack. Those seeds will make a mess of your sprouter and they will never sprout!

The Small Seed Insert (#3) (aka the Alfalfa Insert) easy sprout,easy sprout sprouter,sprouts,sprouter,sprouting,sproutamo

The Growing Vessel (#1) easy sprout,easy sprout sprouter,sprouts,sprouter,sprouting,sproutamo

















If sprouting small seeds like Alfalfa, Clover and Broccoli snap the Small Seed Insert into the bottom of the Growing Vessel.

You will hear it snap into place when you push it to the bottom of the Growing Vessel.  Note: Once in a great while a Small Seed Insert will cease snapping into place. To remedy this, take a pliers (needle-nose is perfect, but any will do), and slightly crimp the lip of the Small Seed Insert in 3-4 places - spaced evenly. Voila!

For Soaking: Place the Growing Vessel in the recessed position, inside of the Solid Base.

easy sprout,easy sprout sprouter,sprouts,sprouter,sprouting,sproutamo













The Growing Vessel is shown here in a recessed position, where the rim of the Solid Base (2) is higher than the Growing Vessel.

When Rinsing: Remove the Growing Vessel and hold it under your sink's tap, or sprayer.

While Sprouting

 In between Rinse/Drain cycles- make sure the "Hangers" (I sometimes call these "teeth"), on the outside rim of the Growing Vessel are sitting on top of the "Bumps" on the inside of the Solid Base. Rest the Dome Lid - in the upright (or inverted - if your seeds/sprouts are lower then the lid is) position - on the lip of the Growing Vessel.

easy sprout,easy sprout sprouter,sprouts,sprouter,sprouting,sproutamo








Note - the Dome Lid does not snap on - it just rests there. Note - Though it is theoretically unnecessary to elevate the Growing Vessel during sprouting, we think it is good practice to do so - especially in hot/humid conditions, when any extra air-circulation is helpful.

Travel Sprouting

While Sprouting (between Rinse/Drain cycles): Set the Growing Vessel inside the Solid Base and snap the Flat Vented Lid onto the Solid Base.  

travel sprouting
















Though the Flat Vented Lid is specifically for Travel Sprouting, it can be used at home - if you insist. Don't forget the Small Seed Insert, if you're growing small seeds into sprouts.

Everything Else

Cleaning: Scrub well between crops with soap and water. Rinse well!

Sterilize: Soap and water usually do the trick, but you can use something stronger every several crops. We used bleach back in the day, but we don't anymore, unless absolutely necessary. There are many options these days, and though an unclean sprouter can cause your crop to fail - we suggest food grade hydrogen peroxide or grapefruit seed extract - or anything else you are comfortable with. We might even offer something by now, for sterilizing. Whatever you go with, do remember: It is always true, that a sterile sprouter is a great place to begin a crop.

Replacement Parts: When you purchase an Easy Sprout, you get everything you need. Every box contains all 6 parts. Folks do misplace a part now and then, so we offer some of the parts individually. We offer the Small Seed Insert, the Flat Vented Lid, and the Flat Solid Lid. Follow those links to get to the pages where you can purchase them, if you need them.

Manufacturer's Instructions: We love Gene, the inventor and producer of Easy Sprout. He is a true sproutperson. The greatest of them all! But, his instructions - which accompany every Easy Sprout - are off-the-wall. Other sprouters have zany instructions as well, but Gene's are the zaniest. We have, since day one, pleaded with our patrons, to avoid them - instead suggesting you follow our instructions. We're saying the same thing here. Read them, enjoy them, experiment with them when you feel you are up to the challenge, but PLEASE use our instructions. You'll get the best possible results when you do.

    I have tried sprouting off an on for years. For me, the jar method was a nuisance and the sprouts seemed to go bad. But the Easy Sprouter has NEVER failed to produce fabulous sprouts. It really IS easy, and the results are just what I'd hoped so many years ago. (P.S. And your seeds are always fresh and lovely - thank you.)

  • Easy Sprouter gets an excellent reveiw
    Just wish I had found the easy sprouter way back before I invested in my Biosta sprouters-so much easier

  • Easy Sprout
    I love these things. So much easier than the jar method. Love love love. Rinses so nice and easy. No clogging of the lid like you get with the jar/lid method.

    I also noticed a better germination rate with your seeds, yay! added bonus

  • My Sprouts Are Going To School Now!
    Just kidding, but this simple, ingenious Easy Sprout Sprouter is really fantastic. I've tried three or four different types of seeds and beans, and they sprout so fast and so beautifully that the sprouts practically jump off the counter and start going to school... I'm joking, of course, but I have had them grow out of the container during the overnight phase of sprouting, even though the sprouter was slightly less than half-full when I started. I highly recommend this product.

  • Amazing!
    The description seemed too good to be true, but after using the Easy Sprout Sprouter, I am simply amazed at the results. Great, consistent sprouts and so simple. Growing, storage and portability. Life is so much more pleasant now.
