Cover Sprouting colander 1.5 L , made from Perspex, comes with 2 connection options, I tend to use the clip while sprouting and the plug when storing in the fridge, or you can use both of the same time, maybe you have a busy fridge and the cover can be easily displaced just with the plug. Click to hide.
Showing the clip in use, the slot in the Perspex allows the clip to lock the cover in place, when placed on the tray so that the flat tabs lineup a small space is created, this allows for air to pass down the sides of the insert and then up through the sprouts and out through the slots. If you turn it around the other way then the clip aligns with the indent in the base tray and will allow the cover to lie perfectly flat e.g. for fridge storage. Of course if you need extra aeration you can just leave it at this tilted position in the larger photo. Click to hide.
Sprouting colander 1.5 L showing showing another way of attaching the cover using a clip, increasing the aeration of the sprouts. There are basically 4 different options - small gap, medium gap(shown here), 45° tilt and removing the inner bowl and placing it on a flat plate or in a larger bowl. Click to hide.

This clear Perspex Sprout cover, is used as a cover for our smaller Sprouting colanders when doing Loose sprouting.
It comes with 2 x attachment methods.
1- is a plug that pops in & out, the main benefit of using this attachment is that it allows you to rotate the cover, meaning that when you take the colander out of the fridge and wish to very quickly just grab some sprouts, then you can just rotate the cover, take the sprouts out and rotate back without having to lift the cover off and place it someplace else, not a big deal but just a little timesaver if you’re in a hurry.
2- is a metal clip this is precisely designed so that the end part of the clip fits flush with the surface, it tends to further restrict the cover from rotating out of position while in the fridge, although the plug does this to a slightly lesser degree depending on how firmly you attach it. The clip also provides a larger air-gap for air circulation, depending on which end you place it relative to the base.
Or you can use both together this way the cover is not going to move no matter what it bumps against in the fridge.
I tend to just use the plug in the fridge, and the clip when sprouting as it gives just the right amount of airgap especially for the 1st 3 or 4 days.
We have gone to this extra effort because we strongly believe in the functional importance of being able to store your sprouts in the fridge when they are at their peak condition. Because you are soaking your sprouts in bio-activated nutrients for the 6 day growing period, they remain vital and full of life for another 6 days in the fridge, this greatly extends their window of availability for eating, otherwise you have to do lots of little batches and you end up throwing a lot away which ends up being expensive, time-consuming and may cause you to stop sprouting, which is a no-win situation for anybody.
