I have found a very lightweight (under 6 ounces) sprouter that is made for
sprouting. It can also serve as a cup to drink out of and several other
uses, so that it makes it a great deal for us who like to carry lightweight
and multi-use gear. Located at:
It is almost to the bottom of the page.
I hope this is of help to you. It is sure of help to me.
