23 cm diameter. We have chosen this as this covers most of the usual pots families use while cooking.
(upto a 4 L pot) So if you need something bigger and make soup for 20 people sorry we cant help you this time around . If we get the first version funded – we might look into making ONELIDXLLast updated:
The lid plate is made of silicone with a nylon core.
That is why the lid is soft and will be quiet during handling.
The handle is made of high grade ABS
(the glass version will have a 3 mm heat resistant glass embedded in silicone)Last updated:
Yes sure. All lids are 100 % dish washer safeLast updated:
No - not recommendedLast updated:
No, your boiling will be exactly the same as before. Steam will also come out of a conventional lid. The overpressure created in a normal lid will also find its way - just in a very un controlled manner.
The fact that the lid does not transfer heat as glass and steel will reduce power consumption.Last updated:
As a rule of thumb shipping worldwide will be
1 lid 10 $
2 lids 15 $
3 lids 20 $
5 lids 25 $
10 lids 50 $Last updated:
The lids are currently made in south China – but managed thru a highly sophisticated Hong Kong production company making products for famous brands like Chef’n, OXO, Starbucks and many many more. All materials are food approved of course.Last updated:
Not really recommendable.
Flames sometimes run up the side of the pot and might be to much for the silicone.
So use only on normal stove, ceramic and induction.
We will test the issue further later.Last updated:
The answer is a clear YES - 100 %
ABS is considered the best high grade plastics in the markets
Free som PVC, Phalates or BPA
The nylon core will not be exposed and has a distortion point at 160 degrees
(lid will never be above 100 degrees)
Silicone is made from sands/rock and hydrogen and stable upto 250-300 degrees
Used for decades for baking forms, lids, spatulas, and many other kitchen appliances
We will of course ensure we have all testing properly done to comply with all migration levels and guidelines set our by FDA and the European REACH directiveLast updated:
We are aware of the issue of "what happens if we do not reach 70 k" and have thought of many ways to try and solve it the best way.
Our suggestion at this time is that you pledge for the glass lid and pay the 50 USD.
If things does not work out for us:
1. We will offer all backers the option of the normal lid + a special gift - a pair of vegetable scrubbing gloves as in the last video - more info here also http://fabrikators.com/da/skruba.html worth 12USD.
2. Another possibility is that you stay onboard a cheer for the glass lid to become a reality! If we do not reach the stretch goal – you can opt. for a normal ONELID on your profile where you can manage your pledge.
We are advised that it is not feasible for anybody that we refund the 10USD as costs to do so exceeds this amount. Looking at the projections (yes we know the are just projections) chances for the glass version to become a reality are looking good - according to https://www.kicktraq.com/projects/158964206/onelid-fits-all/
The above answer will also apply for the new COMBI deal we have been encouraged to make.
I hope this clarifies and that you will proceed and back the glass version - like many other backers.
Meanwhile we are trying to talk to the expected manufacturer if we can somehow start the glass versions at a lower fee as so many backers have opted for this. I think I can post an update about this at least one week before the campaign is finally over - so more certainty will sneak its way in as the campaign progresses. If you prefer to wait for that we do understand - however there is no risk in supporting the pledge at this point in time, as you can always change it within the time frame of the campaign!
