3 Screen Lid Set
Here we have our wonderful Stainless Steel Sprouting Screen Set. The set is comprised of 3 screens of different mesh sizes (Fine, Medium and Coarse), each nestled in a durable, bright white plastic ring. These are made for Wide-Mouth mason jars. Also included are printed instructions for Jar Sprouting. We have these screen lids made just for Sproutpeople. We're very proud of this set! Probably the best known method of sprouting is Jars with Screen Lids. Though Jar sprouting generally requires more attention to detail - it certainly can work! Jars are clear and very cleanable - because they are glass. If you want to sprout in Jars, this set is the perfect way to top your Jars. We also sell a Single Medium Mesh Screen Lid, for those who want just one.

I would like to use metal lids, but there is no doubt they leave rust on the stainless steel screens. If you're fine with rust, no big deal; I prefer to go rust-free. The plastic lids that come with this set are a great alternative. They only make brief contact with COOL water as it drains out, and never touch the sprouting seeds or beans. Therefore, I am not concerned with chemical contamination and my screens don't rust.
After a trial order to check quality on screens I right away purchased more because are such a thick metal they keep flat shape - these are not cheap window screen metal. Discs are nicely finished along edges & are not pricking fingers with any stray wire strands. They fit easily into the lids and remove without twisting or digging out from there; easy to interchange. I dry them laying flat.
The fine size absolutely does make the early draining days step quick work, since really do hold back tiny seeds. I also especially like the large size for both maturer clover & alfalfa sprouts because the wider mesh lets in more air for these sprouts which tend to interweave tightly around themselves crowding the inverted jar mouth when positioned for draining.
One more things: when simply switching in the white plastic lids for my old metal canning jar rings on already growing sprouts some of my jars left a metal brown stain on the inside of the new white plastic lid. Had to scour those glass jar mouth threads and also found could remove the stain on new white lid interior threads. Managed to get new lids stain removed by holding them inside threads facing up under running faucet and cleaning all around with a double sided sponge’s scrubbing surface. Bottle and vegetable brushes somehow weren’t doing the trick & it also took some extra scrubber sponge attention to the fine groove innermost on the lid.
I make Indian tikkis and use these weekly to make 3 kinds of sprouts. They wash and rinse and get batted around in our kitchen and are very sturdy. Much appreciated!
The steel lids are so much better than the plastic. Certainly more durable. I dropped a glass jar and while the glass didn't break the brand new plastic lid did. I use this set now. Oh, if anybody has the discontinued sprouter called THE TUBE, the screens and screw bands fit perfectly!
I had tried to sprout in jars with cloth tops. These screens made it so much easier! They are the best! I will be sending some to my family as gifts!
These are the best lids I've found. I love the easy sprout, but use it mainly for refrigerator storage and prefer to sprout in 1/2 gallon jars. This lid set fills all my needs.
I've had every screen kind ever made and these blow them alll away. They are thinner than plastic ones so water drains way better. They are well worth the price and the instructions they send with them are useful and cool.
These are excellent for jar sprouting. I've been sprouting since the early 70's and have used a lot of these. Sproutpeople has made the best ones ever!
