Frequently Asked Questions
There will be 3 options available for retail:
1. Pack of 3 consisting of 2 small Snugs and 1 large Snug. This is ideal for those who have more utensils with a thinner, narrower handles and less of the broader, roundish handles.
2. Pack of 3 consisting of 1 small Snug and 2 large Snugs. This is ideal for those who have more utensils with a broader, roundish handles and less of the thinner, narrower handles.
3. Pack of 6 consisting of 3 small and 3 large Snugs. This is the best option for most as most of us have way more than just 3 utensils in our kitchen. Also, you can leave the Snugs on the utensil handles, if you so wish, so you don't have to share between utensils.Last updated:
At this time, the colors in the available packs are pre-determined for production. There will be 6 colors in total, out of which 3 colors are for small Snugs and 3 for the large ones. The colors are limited to 6 as there is MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) for each size and color by our manufacturer. Our budget for the first production run allows us to not exceed 6 colors. However, we are actively negotiating with the manufacturer to allow us to get more color choices. It will be more expensive because for each color choice, the manufacturer has to make a new batch of raw material (silicone) and mix the particular color pigment. This is extra time and labor leading to increased costs.Last updated:
Unfortunately, at this time, the colors are pre-determined. The 6 different colors are going to be finalized with our backers' involvement. However, we are actively negotiating with our manufacturer to let our backers chose their colors for the part of the packaging from our first production run, that are destined for our wonderful backers. When available, this will be at a premium as this involves customized sorting at the manufacturer/packager, and adds a lot of time, labor and special care that each backer actually got the colors they wanted. This can get very complicated as each backer could potentially pick totally different color combinations than the other backers, if given an option.Last updated:
What size handles can the Snug accommodate? What are the typical cooking or serving utensils that can be used with Snugs?
We have gone through a lot of iterations, computer simulations and testing of the Snug design to ensure that the width and height of the oval in the upper slot of the Snug (minor and major axis of the ellipse) along with the stiffness of the silicone material is fully optimized, and can grab on to narrow and thinner kind of handles for the smaller Snug and bigger, broader handles for the bigger Snug. In fact there is some overlap between the two sizes so a given handle, which is neither too narrow nor too wide can fit in either one of the Snug sizes.
Smaller Snug fits most of the kitchen utensils with a thinner handle (flat or round), whether it is Stainless Steel, Wooden, Rubber or Plastic.
It also fits spoons, forks, and smaller serving spoons, etc.
Bigger Snug fits utensils with wider handles and also bigger round handles, like the ones with a thick grip, ice scream scoop or an egg whisk. For pictures, please visit our Kickstarter page. We have tried to display the variety of handles that might put an image in front of you along with my answers.
Just a few of the infinite possibilities:
Yes, there is a plan because it sounds logical to do this. However, we hope you understand that the primary objective for the project was to build the Snugs for kitchen use. In the near future, depending on the success of the project, we might be designing something to keep the Snugs in one place, which probably could also be used for display on a counter or even as a gift box for the Snugs.Last updated:
