Oven Incubator Kit to Make Probiotic-Rich Food ✨


The Incubator Kit transforms your oven (or cooler, cardboard box) into an incubator and allows you to select and maintain the temperature at which you want to culture probiotic food.


When I started The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D), I jumped into making unsalted probiotic food (i.e. yckcultured veggies) and quickly discovered that they were easy to make, but hard to keep warm during the incubation period. 

Most of the unsalted probiotic food on B.E.D. requires a steady 70-72 degrees F. to incubate to encourage the friendly flora to work their ‘probiotic’ magic. But, what if your home temperature goes up and down? I’ve been making these foods since 2010 and find that when the temperature fluctuates too much, the food can spoil; either because it’s too warm and the good flora inside bred too fast or because it’s too cold and the good flora inside do not breed fast enough. 

I used to culture probiotic food in the bathroom with a space heater and thermometer; and though this worked, it was not an ideal situation because everyone was constantly going in n out and leaving the door open. I tried using a seed mat in my big cooler with the jars of food on top of that; and this worked too, but again I was constantly checking on them and worried they were too cold or too hot.

After losing several batches due to inconsistent temperatures (and feeling like the whole house was becoming one big incubator) I asked my husband, to come up with a product that would make making cultured food easier. This Incubator Kit is what he came up with…you simply plug a regular light bulb (source of heat) into the digital temperature control device that can be set at the desired temperature to maintain a consistently warm environment. This puts YOU in charge of controlling the temperature.

These days, I know that I’m going to get a great product. I put my jars in the oven with the Incubator Kit and set the gauge to the desired temperature. Nowadays, I no longer worry about my ‘babies’ because I know they are warm. It’s like wrapping them in a cozy blanket! I can walk away and carry on with the rest of my life; no longer checking them at all hours of the day. I love helping others have this same peace of mind ⭐ 

We love your hubby’s invention! Unsalted cultured food is a huge part of B.E.D and making them used to drive us nuts. We’d get up in the middle of the night to check on them, lol. Thank you for giving us peace of mind and sleep. ~ MC, San Luis Obispo, CA

How it Works

The Incubator Kit transforms your oven (cooler, cardboard box) into an incubator and allows you to select/maintain the temperature you want it to be at.

  1. Place Incubator Kit in insulated space (oven, cooler, box) and plug into electrical outlet.
  2. Put jars of probiotic food into the space.
  3. Set gauge to the desired temperature.
  4. The light bulb/heat source automatically turns on, and stays on, until desired temperature is reached. Once at desired temperature, the light bulb automatically turns off. If the temperature drops below desired temperature, the light will turn back on.


  • Select any temperature between 68°F and 108°F.
  • Displays temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit scale.
  • Automatic safety shut-off, if probe temperature reaches 108˚F.
  • Maximum of 1000 watts of heating devices can be plugged into thermostat.
  • Normal wattage light bulb used. 
  • No more checking on your “babies”, now you know that they will be cozy and warm.
  • Perfect for making unsalted probiotic food (yckmilk kefir) on Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D).
  • YOU are in charge of controlling the temperature.

Depending on component availability, shipping can take 1-2 weeks.

This is a great tool. I could have used it for so many purposes in the last 40 yrs. ~  JN, Underhill, VT

Tara, I LOVE your Incubator Kit! I can go to bed at night and know that my cultured food will be at a constant temperature. I use the oven to incubate and I will say that it is worth giving up the oven for the week to know that my jars will turn out fine. ~ SC, Cleveland, Ohio

Works beautifully, I no longer need to keep the temperature stable with hot pads and water bottles. ~  HG, Quebec, Canada
