What is the E-jen Fermentation and Storage Container?

The E-jen Kimchi Container is widely loved in Korea as the best modern container for fermenting and storing kimchi and jang (Korean fermented sauces). It is great for sauerkraut and pickles as well. It also functions exceptionally well for other foods requiring airtight storage, such as fresh vegetables, coffee beans, bread, seaweed, cookies, cereals, grains and even dry pet foods.

How does it work?

The E-jen Kimchi Container combines the ancient Korean Onggi (breathing earthenware) principle with modern, easy-to-use technology. Onggi, Korean earthenware, dates back to 57 BC when it was first used to store various foods. It is referred to as the “breathing pot” because of its unique porosity, and it is known as an excellent vessel for fermented foods like kimchi, pickles and jang (Korean fermented sauces). Although Onggi is amazing in many ways, it is difficult to use in a modern home environment because it is very heavy, difficult to clean and awkward to keep in the fridge. The E-jen Kimchi Container was developed to solve all those problems while maintaining the age-old ingenuity and usefulness of Onggi. The container is made from high quality durable polypropylene plastic mixed with 7-10% natural clay for optimal porosity. Like Onggi, the container has very fine pores which allow minimal air flow. This keeps the food fresh while preventing harmful (aerobic) bacteria from thriving. The simple yet brilliant design of the inner vacuum lid allows easy adjustment of the lid position according to the level of food. So regardless of the amount of food, the container induces an anaerobic environment in which the beneficial bacteria (lactic acid-producing bacteria) thrive and the crispy texture and vibrant color are maximized. The carbon dioxide released by lactic acid producing bacteria is absorbed back to the kimchi juice, creating a more refreshing taste.

In the old days, Koreans used the large outer leaves of nappa cabbage to cover the surface of kimchi to prevent molds. Today many Koreans use cling wrap instead. For kimchi with liquid, the old practice was to use large flat rocks to keep the vegetables in the liquid. The inner vacuum lid of the E-jen now does the job of the leaves and the rocks, protecting the surface of the food where harmful aerobic bacteria tend to grow, and prevent pickles in the liquid from floating.

Although the smell of kimchi is the result of healthy bacteria-producing lactic acid, it can be quite powerful. The E-jen container’s double lids contain the smell better than most containers, preventing it from filling the kitchen or the fridge.
