Sprouter Kit for Sprouts and Microgreens
Sprouter kit is a Sprouting Kit that gives you:
A SproutPearl sprouter with 1 lid, 1 seed tray and 1 bottom + 4 portion bags of organic sprout seeds + Sponge + Aerator. The package also includes a short, English manual with 8 steps guide to the cultivation and dosage overview for the SproutPearl sprouter. In other words: Everything you need to become a true budding enthusiast.
The SproutPearl sprouter by FRESH SPROUTS is produced in Denmark. The plastic is food approved and free of phthalates, color and BPA.
This Danish sprouter is completely transparent in the lid and seed tray, while the lower bottom is ‘frosted’. The container is round and 18 cm in diameter. Each part is 4 cm in height + 1 cm for ‘feet’ at the bottom, which lifts the tray from the table and ensures ventilation under it.
The middle seed tray can hold up to 6 handfuls of sprouts in total per tray. The seed tray has a fixed partition. Thus, you can either grow two different varieties at the same time in the tray, or you can grow your sprouts in each half staggered in time. It gives you ample opportunity to harvest your sprouts when it suits you.
You can choose to purchase several loose seed trays, which you insert into the SproutPearl. This way you can grow even more sprouts or microgreens with up to 5 layers in the same sprout tray.
Organic Sprouting Seeds for the Sprouter Kit
In this Sprouter Kit there is 4 portion seed bags with organic sprouting seeds. Each bag contain a seed amount that fit ½ SproutPearl seed tray. Each serving bag will grow into 1-3 handfuls of mature sprouts.
The sprouting seeds are EU-certified organic, tested free from harmful bacteria and approved for cultivation of sprouts and microgreens.
The bags have labels that show the taste, cultivation time and color of the sprout. You will also find links to more information about the sprout on each label.

In your Sprouter Kit you also get an environmentally friendly cleaning sponge. The Sprouter SproutPearl is dishwasher safe on a plastic program, but sprouts do not like soap residues. Therefore, I recommend that you wash your SproutPearl by hand as often as possible using this sponge. The fungus is white, 100% biodegradable and environmentally friendly. The sponge is produced from wood fibers – cellulose – but it does not scratch your sprout tray.
It is a good rule of thumb, that you only use the sponge for your Sprouter. This way you will not transfer bacteria into your sprouter from other tasks. You should also use only allergy-friendly dishwashing detergent for your sprouter. That type of soap contains no harmful substances to your sprouts. Rinse with warm water, squeeze the sponge and let it dry. With this generous treatment, your Sponge lasts for many months.

Aerator for Sprout cultivation
The Aerator is a smart adapter for your faucet / Kitchen tap. With this aerator you can set the water jets to be gentle on your sprouts.
You choose between a white / chrome or a completely white Aerator in your Sprouter Kit.
Both versions are German produced, so they are of good quality. The difference between the two aerators is, that the Chrome / White variety has a head with a chrome surface. The white one has a white head of hard plastic. Both have plastic threads to attach the aerator on the faucet.
Both colors of the water saving faucet aerator are the same size. They are made to fit kitchen faucets that follow the set EU standards. However, I recommend, that you always measure the size of the thread on your faucet, before buying your new aerator water swivel. That way, you are sure it fits your kitchen faucet.
The size of the outer thread must be: 2.1 cm
The size of the inner thread should be: 2.3 cm
