Get all of the health benefits and nutrition out of broccoli sprouts (and alfalfa, sunflower, bean, radish, etc..) without all of the time consuming and costly headaches like seeds that don’t sprout, dried out plants or worse – mold!
These 4 seed sprouters are all very popular and get rave reviews from users, however they are not great for everyone. Below, we’ve summarized the pros and cons of each.
The Easy Sprout is cheap, simple, small and even portable. If you are growing greens for one person and don’t plan on eating them daily, this can be a good option.
However, because it is smaller-sized, you are limited in how many sprouts you can grow at one time.
Stackable and inexpensive, this is my favorite seed sprouter.
You can grow lots of different sprouts at one time, which is perfect for people who are salad-eaters. It takes up little space on the counter and can be cleaned in a dishwasher.
If you don’t plan on consuming sprouts regularly and want something simpler, go for the Easy Sprout above instead.
The Sprout Garden is similar to the Victorio above, but it has 3 trays instead of 4.
It also includes organic alfalfa seeds in the kit and a drainage tray for healthier plants. Many users have mentioned that it’s a good kit for newbies because it is virtually dummy-proof.
The containers are opaque, so you can’t see the sprouts growing.
This kit is automatic, meaning that you plug it in and it goes to work for you. It mists plants several times a day, creating optimal growing conditions without you having to pay attention to it.
It’s designed for the busy person or long-time grower who wants to grow lots of sprouts or grass without having to spend time doing it.
It costs significantly more than other machines, but the trade off is less maintenance and attention.
