Keep your Kimchi tasting Fresh

[Lock & Lock] Breathing Kimchi Containers - Stainless Steel

Introducing.... Lock & Lock's New Breathing Kimchi Container!

This new container has a patented air valve which expels fermentation gases that are released by Kimchi as it ages in the refrigerator.

The breathing valve also prevents any external air from entering the container.

This produces a controlled environment in which the Kimchi can ferment at an even, slow pace. The moisture is locked in and that crunchy texture of fresh cabbage lasts for longer!

The container is made in Korea using Stainless Steel (premium grade 304).

The container will not stain or absorb any smells, which makes clean-up so easy!

The lid has a silicon lining that makes the container leak-proof! You can store all types of Kimchi - including Water Kimchi (물김치)

The lid is also transparent - you can check on the status of your kimchi without opening it!

If you eat or make Kimchi regularly, consider purchasing a special container for it.

This premium container is available in a variety of sizes - select one.

Holding capacity for each container is listed below.


Gochujar Editor Note: After receiving the container, please remove the sticker from the valve. This breathing container will continuously release gas by itself in its normal (closed) position - no need to open or close the valve manually!

If for some reason, you want to manually release a build-up of fermentation gases (or for cleaning) - turn the valve counter-clockwise. To tighten back to its normal (closed) position, turn clock-wise.

worth it's price

I was looking for a good quality stainless kimchi container. I found it. I am absolutely satisfied.

Très pratiques et hygiéniques ! Je ne pouvais pas mieux trouver! Je vais m en recommander encore quelques uns de différentes tailles après avoir essayé.

I love my new 3L rectangular kimchi container as it’s the perfect size for my one-person household. It is very well made: the quality is excellent, and the clear lid and air valve allows me to check on the kimchi without having to open it. Will be trying sauerkraut next. If you make your own kimchi, I’m sure you’d be happy with this!

Great fermentation container!

We ordered two- one for kimchi and the other for sauerkraut, both are in use now are there no bad smells in the fridge We're also noticing that kimchi stays crisp longer thanks to the air valve. Would definitely recommend them!

Marek B. (Warsaw, 14)
That is what I was looking for.

I ordered 2 smaller rectangle containers, which fit my fridge just right. Smaller napa cabbage quarters fit inside just perfectly. The quality of workmanship, cleanness of design and overall functionality are great, and a personal note that was attached to shipment was a really nice touch - I attached it to my fridge and it will remain there :) I made a single batch of kimchi so far and it turned out great, and aged slower in the container compared to jars I used earlier. Overall, highly recommended, even if a bit pricey - in my opinion theh are worth it.

LocknLock's Breathing Kimchi Containers

Helps kimchi to ferment at an even, consistent pace

Containers come with LocknLock's patented Breathing Valve™ technology

Made with Korean Stainless Steel (304) - stain-free & anti-bacterial!

Made with Korean Stainless Steel (304)

Non-Staining & Smell-Free

These containers are made of Premium Stainless Steel (Type 304). 

The container will not stain or absorb any smells - simple to clean!

Patented Breathing Valve™

The valve releases any fermentation gases that build-up in the container

At the same time, it prevents any external air from entering the container

Why do I need the Breathing Valve?

Kimchi - as it ferments - releases gases into the air

These gases accelerate fermentation - making the overall look and taste change quickly

When these gases are removed, the Kimchi ferments in a more evenly controlled environment. 

Kimchi is juicier, contains higher levels of probiotics and retains that "fresh" crunchy taste for much longer


  • Before first use, remove the factory sticker on the air valve.
  • After removing the sticker, there is nothing more to do! 
  • No need to manually open or close the valve - the valve will automatically release a build up of gas in its normal (closed) position! 
  • If for some reason, you want to release gas manually (or for washing),  you can open the valve by twisting counter-clock wise
  • Return to it's normal (closed) position by turning clockwise, until it locks into place
  • Please handwash - do NOT place in dishwasher as the lid may warp

 Snap-on wings (easy to use)

+ Silicon lined lid (leakproof!)

The lid has durably-built, snap-on wings - locks into place securely!

Silicone-lined lid for leak-proof storage - great for storing all types of Kimchi including "Water Kimchi"

Transparent Lid

The lid is transparent so you can easily check on your Kimchi without opening it!

Dome-shaped lid

As opposed to a flat-lid, you can fit more Kimchi into these containers!

(Especially useful for large batches of radish kimchi or ponytail radish kimchi

Large handles for easy-carry

The handles are built to last - they will not break or damage

Easy to carry large weights of Kimchi in/out of the refrigerator
