A Korean meal accompaniment made with fermented vegetables, kimchi is loaded with vitamins A, B and C and it makes for a delicious way to incorporate gut-friendly probiotics into your diet. With this kit, you can make perfect kimchi with less than 10 minutes of active prep time. The kit was developed by Brooklyn-based cook Khadeem Oh, who worked with his Korea-born mother to develop an all-natural kimchi paste that makes perfect small-batch kimchi every time.

  • Kit includes one packet of kimchi paste and a 2-qt.-cap. glass jar with two lids—a fermentation lock lid to use during the fermenting process, and a solid lid for storing finished kimchi.
  • One jar of paste makes approx. 1/2 gallon of kimchi from five pounds of cabbage or other fermentable vegetable.
  • All natural and preservative-free.
  • No MSG.
  • Made in USA.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addicted to Kimchee I purchased Mama O's Kimchee Kit from Williams Sonoma a while ago. I became completely obsessed & addicted to Kimchee and how versatile it is.. I made about 2 gallons last year.. I used it with everything ~ in soups, on sandwiches, with omelettes, over rice, in stews; vegetarian chili; on meats & mixed with other vegetables. I also eat it straight from the jar and with bagel chips; towards the bottom of the jar, I puree what's left and put it into tomato basil soup.. The only place I didn't use it is on ice cream and cakes. My last jar is gone ~ making more tomorrow.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incomplete Ordered this product, got the jar, lids, sea salt but no kimchi paste, emailed them about it but never got a response, it’s been like two weeks, really not pleased

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I purchased this item, because I was tired of going so far to find fresh kimchi and without the additives & ingredients I wanted to avoid. I figured it would be better if I made it myself and it was very easy to make and store. It's also the perfect size. I'm very happy with this item and would recommend it to everyone who wants to make their own fresh kimchi.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun to make and easy too Love this kimchi kit!! All I did was brine my cabbage for 7 hours, drain, rinse, add the paste with green onion and cilantro. Mix and put everything into the glass jar and DONE!! It's fun and the Mama O jar is super cute on the counter! Definitely recommend this to everyone. I used organic cabbage, onions and cilantro and love knowing exactly what's in my kimchi!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made GREAT kimchi, & it was SO easy! We made GREAT kimchi with this kit and it was SO easy! We used a variety of veggies from our garden: regular cabbage, Vietnamese herbs and greens, and cucumber, and it was great! The airlock works like a charm! The instructions were simple, clear and totally accurate, and I watched the great, short video on their site, too. When I PM'd Mama O's on Facebook for advice (could I use other vegetables, regular cabbage, etc.) they responded immediately! We now have 22lbs of cucumbers from our garden, & I'm buying more of their great kimchi pastes so we can make cucumber-ramp kimchi!! :-) I got this as a gift for my chef husband (and I), and we were both Very pleased with it- it's truly a GREAT kit to get as a gift for the "foodie" in your life!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy enough 15 minutes in description is extremely optimistic, not that I expected it to be accurate. The process is easy enough but takes fifteen minutes to cut the cabbage. The next day process was 15-20 minutes. Didn't run a timer. I bought 5 lbs cabbage but didn't cut it all. Used about 2.5 lbs and had about an inch left in the jar. The gloves were large but not big enough for my hands. Try before hand as you may want to get an XL size. And they are not pre-talced. As stated above the process is easy and total time is less than an hour for homemade Kimchi. The real test will be in a couple of days. One addition, I boiled the water and let it cool for the brine. We only have chlorine so got rid of that impurity.
