The Sourhouse Starter Jars are designed it 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 rubber band too.

Lightweight, sturdy jars that are easy to view contents and easy to clean. I also believe it extends the viability and strength of my starter when stored in the fridge. Nice! Good customer service!

First time use of glads

I have always use plastic jars so these are first glass. Definitely like them as it is much easier to see the the rise and development of the starter. Great product.

Nothing to Improve Here

Perfect size, shape and lid. If you are looking for a home for a starter container , look no further. Large opening to toss in flour and water out of the measuring cup. The customer service is outstanding. USPS kinda dropped the ball on delivery, but Erik was on the spot and took care of everything. Doughlores loves her new space.

Arrived with broken band - 100% replacement no issues

I’ve been fermenting things for a long time but never sourdough - my home is cold and inconsistently heated (apartment temp not regulated well) - so I knew I needed something that could manage those issues - I’ve made plenty of things in the past / but they are never “clean” looking - this and Sourhouse products work/look great. One of the two jars came with band that stuck to the jar and broke / I immediately sent the company a picture and they sent me a replacement…not just the band - a whole new jar…. That’s backing your products… and maybe they don’t have the bands separate… but no questions asked and they even catered to my shipping company of choice since I have issues receiving FedEx deliveries - so far my first starter is thriving - I’m using the guide in the cookbook on the website and so far no issues. Great growth, looks good on my counter with all the other cooking associated appliances and gadgets I have around. Thanks for being customer friendly.

So easy to use, I love this jar

I love the wide mouth, it’s so easy to feed and mix the starter. Stays so clean too. Definitely worth the purchase.
