The Sourhouse Starter Jars are designed to be the easiest-to-clean sourdough starter jars in the world.

You see, there are no threads where your starter can collect and gunk up.

The soft, silicone lid hugs the outside of the jar to keep contaminates out of our jar. It stays in place with just enough friction to be secure while still letting gases out. Dry starter flakes off the lid with a squeeze.

The jars have a flat bottom, so it gets great contact with Goldie's warming base for efficient warmth transfer. 

They are made of very clear, borosilicate glass so it is easy to see any bits of dry flour that need to get mixed up into your starter. And of course, the jar has straight sides so it is easy to mix, clean and track the rise of your starter. 

  • On the sides of each PINT size jar are dots in 50ml and 100ml increments for judging when your starter has doubled (or tripled).
  • Our QUART size jar has 100ml and 200ml dots for those of you who like to keep larger starters or to build a levain in advance of a bake.

Both the PINT and QUART jars leave enough clearance inside Goldie to use a Sourhouse Cooling Puck.

For size reference, all of the pictures of Goldie this site have a PINT jar inside.

Each jar comes with a gold silicone marking band too.

Love it so much I bought a 2nd one

Love this jar and the lid. I would prefer that the band was flat--it can roll/change position in the fridge when people are moving things around in there. But I have plenty of rubber bands; the important part is that the vessel and lid are perfect. Easy to use/clean.

This is the best container

This is my spare to keep on hand to keep everything clean. It can get untidy after a while so I got a second one to change to. It’s worth it to me to do this and much easier to keep clean

Qt. And Pt. Jars

Had been working with the pint jar that I got with the starter house and found I couldn’t make enough starter for some recipes. The Quart jar is great, still fits nicely under the glass dome. The smaller jars are perfect to keep different starters in the fridge until I’m ready to work with them.

Came broken

It came with a crack in the bottom and I have reached out twice over the course of the past 2 weeks with no response

Hi Nicole! Sorry about the jar and the trouble reaching us. We have been getting your emails and responded on March 26th and April 2nd. Perhaps our responses are going to your spam folder? We will try reaching out again a different way. Don't worry, we will get your jar issue sorted out.
