Overwhelmingly the most popular sprouter.
Easy Sprout is made up of a 1 Quart (litre) Growing Vessel, a Solid container/Base that catches excess Rinse water, a Small Seed Insert that snaps in when sprouting small seeds, two Growing Lids (1 for home (Domed) and 1 for the road (Flat)), and a Solid Lid for refrigerator storage of your sprout crop.
Very versatile - Easy Sprout can sprout virtually any seed, anywhere!
Easy Sprout Sprouting Instructions
Since the Easy Sprout drains from the bottom it is the perfect device for cleaning your seeds prior to soaking. If you are sprouting small seeds, snap the Small Seed Insert into the bottom of the Growing Vessel. Put your seeds in the Growing Vessel and run water through them until the water runs clear.
Place the Growing Vessel - now with clean seeds - into the solid Base. Fill with cool (60 - 70°) water and leave to soak for 8 - 12 hours - or for the time noted for the seed or mix you are sprouting.
It is optimal to remove the Growing Vessel and hold it under your tap or sprayer. This allows you to use water pressure. Make sure all of the sprouts get thoroughly wet by moving the Easy Sprout, or by moving your tap or sprayer. As an average run water through for about 15-20 seconds at every Rinse, but there is no hard rule. Always use cool (60 - 70°) water.
If you need or prefer to use less water: Leave the Growing Vessel inside of the Solid Base. Fill it with at least twice as much water as you have seeds/sprouts. Twirl the Easy Sprout so that the seeds/sprouts swim round 'n round. As your crop grows you will likely need to use a fork or spoon to make them swim.
In between Rinsing and Draining, your Easy Sprout does best while set up with the Growing Vessel sitting higher than the Solid Base and with the Dome Lid resting on the Growing Vessel's lip (the Dome Lid may be dome up or dome down - it makes no difference).
Bounce the Growing Vessel against the side of your sink, Get all the water out after each rinse because as we know - seeds will not germinate in standing water and sprouts that sit in water will rot.
We always suggest a low-light, 70° location for your sprouter, until it is time for Greening. At that point we say to move your sprouter to a well lit location. Easy Sprout, though partially opaque, will allow in plenty of light to get your sprouts to go green - well - those around the outside anyway. Even though it has remarkable air-circulation, you don't want to put it in direct sunlight as your sprouts could cook. So concentrate on that other thing we say: You'll be amazed at how little light it takes to turn your sprouts green!
Harvest and Crop Storage
Before Harvesting any crop, it is essential that you Drain it Very Thoroughly after your final Rinse. Storing crops that are dry to the touch, maximizes their shelf life. So pay especially close attention to this: Drain thoroughly!
If you want to Store Your Crop using Easy Sprout, all you need do is snap the solid lid atop the Solid Base before putting it in your refrigerator. Do leave your sprouts in the Growing Vessel if you're storing in Easy Sprout.
