  Overview

  

  

It is basically a hub for your kitchen: It provides the structure for a smooth, intuitive workflow and eliminates most of the negative effort of cooking.

Nothing more, but nothing less: It is huge if you have a closer look at what you are actually doing while cooking.

  Ergonomics

If there is one question we hear more than others, it would be:

"It looks really awkward to cook with these containers between me and the cutting board????"

The answer is: You don´t feel any difference.

Here is why:

As you can tell, this picture shows a relaxed upright posture, with the knife  located in area B, the working area.

This picture shows the same person in the same posture with the exact same distance between knife and body, but this time using a Frankfurter Brett. It literally feels like any other cutting board too. It just has some striking additional benefits.

 Details

The standard depth of kitchen worktops is 60cm, so even with very large cookbooks your frankfurter brett should easily fit in.

 Wood choices

Off course, there is not much to consider apart from the price tag and your personal favourite. All woods we use are great for cutting boards.

a) You can only pledge for one reward

b) You can edit your pledge manually at any time while the campaing is live. So even if you don´t get it right in the first place, there is plenty of time to get everything in your order you want to)

Es ist eher eine Art Schnittstelle für die Küche: Es stellt die Struktur für einen flüssigen, intuitiven Workflow bereit und beseitigt damit einen Großteil des negativen Aufwandes beim Kochen.

Nicht mehr, aber auch nicht weniger: Es ist ganz, ganz großartig, wenn man sich die Details des Kochens genauer anschaut.

 Ergonomie

Wenn es eine Frage gibt, die wir öfter gestellt kriegen als andere, dann wäre es die folgende:

"Das sieht echt ungemütlich aus mit den Schüsseln vor dem Bauch...kann man da überhaupt ohne Rückenschmerzen kochen?"

Und wir haben immer genau eine Antwort: Man spürt einfach überhaupt keinen Unterschied.

Hier ist die Erklärung:

Entspannte Körperhaltung, Messer in angenehmer Distanz zum Körper im Bereich B, der Arbeitszone

Dieses Bild zeigt die selbe Person mit genau der selben Entfernung zwischen Messer & Körper, aber diesmal mit einem Frankfurter Brett. Es fühlt sich genau so wie jedes andere Schneidebrett auch, hat nur ein paar sehr überzeugende Zusatzfunktionen.

Risks and challenges

This is our 2. project on kickstarter.
Since we started last year, we did what most young companies do, after they got funded:
We build up our company, established supply chains and we learned an awful lot about quality management and production lines.

But most importantly, we sold more than 1100 of our cutting edge workbenches, and although more than the occasional mistake happened on our side, we still have a pretty good reputation for both the quality of our products, and -more importantly- our customer service.

We really do care about every single one of our customers, and if there is one thing, we pride ourselves of: We communicate well.
(In fact, during the entire first year, we can only think of 1 customer that we actually lost and we still feel bad about that).

So if unexpected issues occur or even if we make really bad mistakes, we will let you know as soon as we know about it and we will proceed with the greatest transparency possible.

And lets be clear: This project is about making things as simple as possible, and that accounts for the production as well. Right now, we can´t think of anything that we can not control in full extend. Every single component of this product is well known and in a more complex variation already in production.

(The only exception is the tablet-stand. We only have a 3D-printed prototype right now, and it works great. But since we don´t have any experience with injection moulding at this point, we have partners who deal with the details. But again: It is a very simple part production wise, we will get this done.)

So, as a bottom line: You know, and we know, that this is a kickstarter-campaign, and naturally things can go wrong. We do our best to avoid that, and even if something big unforeseeable happens, we will get through it, together. And we will make this happen. We promise.
