THE SPROUTER AND ITS PARTS
SIX PARTS made from six ounces (or 4.6 oz.) of durable food grade plastic (high density polyethylene) simplify all aspects of sprouting from pre-washing seeds (if needed) to storing sprouts. (An added plus - non-sprouting uses such as washing grapes & berries or "crisping" limp celery, carrots, etc.!)
EASY-SPROUT™ is always used with the Inner Container nesting in the Outer Container when soaking, sprouting, storing and serving.
An Alfalfa Insert snaps inside the Inner Container. It reduces drainage slits for tiny seeds. (Use only when necessary.)
The INNER CONTAINER rests above or level with the OUTER CONTAINER. Both positions maintain air flow and retain moisture when used with the combination measuring cup / DOME or VENTED LID. The Solid LID provides a tighter seal of the sprouter contents (for use when airflow isn't necessary or wanted). With proper soaking, draining and warmth most viable seeds sprout rapidly. The process generates heat that results in the flow of fresh, humidified air that protects the sprouts from suffocation & dehydration. And traditional problems (fermentation, mold formation or rotting of "dead" seeds) can be minimized or eliminated.
A 1 1/2 cup capacity Dome rests above the Inner Container. It permits air circulation yet retains moisture. With graduated markings, it doubles as a measuring cup for use with fresh sprouts or most dry seeds.
To Soak/Rinse - Cover seeds/sprouts with warm/tepid water. Lift out Inner Container to drain, empty the Outer Container & replace Inner Container. Sprouts do best if they are well-drained after soaking or rinsing.
Important Note: Small seeds can be water-logged for hours after soaking. Use centrifugal force to remove water from seed mass. Rock sprouter back & forth. Or put it in a nylon stocking or a red mesh tube bag used to package 4 lbs. of oranges & twirl. Then loosen compacted seeds by slapping sprouter.
EASY-SPROUT CARE - Clean with dish brush. To remove stains, fill with water and add a Tablespoon of bleach. The same bleach water can be used repeatedly. (If placed in a Dishwasher, Top Rack Only.)
A Message from the Inventor - Gene Monson
The old ways of sprouting are too slow, inconvenient and bothersome.
EASY-SPROUT™ changes that. Now you can grow fresh sprouts (at home or away) and keep them conveniently at your fingertips.
For 20+ years I've been using, loving and supplying these practical, effective, earth-friendly fingertip gardens. Why?
Because this unique quart-size, dual-container sprouting system (made of durable, easy-to-clean, quality food grade material - HDPE) is able to
-Use the heat from sprouting seeds to circulate fresh, humidified air by natural convection.
-Prevent suffocation & dehydration so sprouts need less (or NO) rinsing.
-Conveniently produce pound batches of healthier, tastier sprouts faster with minimal effort.
-Simplify and enhance "Travel Sprouting" and the storage of fresh sprouts in the refrigerator.
Grow a pound of tasty sprouts in 8-48 hours with convenient
NO RINSE SPROUTING!
Just soak 1/2 - 2 1/2 cups dry seeds, beans, grains or nuts for 1-12 hours, drain & sprout.
Durable quart-size, dual-container balances warmth, humidity, oxygen by convection for fast, convenient sprouting. Guide with recipes included. Made in the U.S.A.
