The Clearing Tool:

This tool has three functions:

  • 1) Help in the cleaning of the Rounded Onion dicing and slicing blades after use in order to clear out any onion leaves left behind or stuck in between the blades.
  • 2) Acts as the base for clearing food when using the flat discs. When inserted in the Rouncer base device’s semi-circular groove and the handle is pressed down, the food cuttings clears the blades and collects in the small container thanks to the clearing tool and its spikes.
  • 3) Disc blade hand guard. When using the disc blades for its mandolin functions in slicing, wavy cutting and even for grating, the hand guard allows you to latch on to the top of the vegetable or block of cheese as you get closer to the blades in order to avoid any finger cuts. 

How to use the Rouncer:

Take a look at our video for an easy guide on what our patented Rouncer will do for you!

  • Simply cut an onion into half with a knife and chop of the two ends with shoot and stem, and then place it in the semi-circular groove of the Rouncer base unit, attach the round onion blade on the top blade slot of the unit (pick one out of the 14 depending on your requirement).
  • Use the top base unit handle to hand press the blade through the onion in the bottom base unit. This will force the onion through the blades.
  • The onion will not completely go through and collect in the top compartment, about 2mm of the onion skin will stay below the blade which ensures that the scaly leaf does not get cut and go through the blades.
  • Remove the scaly leaf before adding the next onion to cut up. 
  • Lift up the top handle of the device, simply peel off the scaly skin on top of the blade.
  • Put the lid down and turn the device upside down to shake and allow any vegetables stuck between blades to fall through. Use the platform filler tool which also acts as a dicing/slicing clearing tool to clean blades of cuttings which are stuck in between.
  • To use any of the flat cutting blades, insert the blade, but place the semi-circular plastic space filler in the bottom base unit groove to cover the onion slot and make the surface flat. You can then use the device in the same way as above.
  • To use the disc blades, insert part to the blade slot and then turn the device upside down with the lid open and away from the base, rotating to the opposite direction. To use the disc blades, you simply slide to mandoline cut, grate, wavy slice and more on the underside of the top lid handle cover rather which is now exposed to the top. Please refer to images for more guidance.
 
The Rouncer Family

Rouncer comes designed in 2 cool colours! The "Autumn Lemon" and "The Old Grey".

We sprayed the prototypes with acrylic resin and took professional studio images to show and develop our concept, The final production results will resemble the two variations types above.

Rouncer – Form, Function and High Quality

We have designed the Rouncer with quality in mind, a uniquely designed product like nothing else available in the market, a real problem solver and one we believe that will make the world a better place!

It will be constructed of the finest materials and created with precision quality. There will also be a money-back guarantee against defects or cancellation.

Home and kitchen products have become very popular with consumers looking for new cool and useful products to add to their kitchen gadget list. The Rouncer will become a must have tool for every kitchen just as a knife would be, the ability to save you time and stop tears has been very well accepted by reviewers.  

Get perfectly sized and square cut diced onions every time! Slices are of the same thickness every time you chop onions! No more health and safety concerns whilst cutting onions, this is a common knife cut in the kitchen that you can do without, and now with the Rouncer, you can chop away safely.

We have secured retail distribution in the USA and the UK if we successfully manage to mass produce this product. A starting order of 5000 pieces would be placed if we get tooled up. Your funding will help us achieve this.

In the News:

Our initial prototype V1 made the news because of what it represented, the idea that could become part of everyone's life through their kitchen!

http://www.cateringinsight.com/16150-onion-slicer-maker-looking-for-investors/

What can you do with the Rouncer:

Comes with 14 Multifunctional blades included in the Rouncer including:  The Spiral Julienne strips cutter, Apple coring, Peeler, Grater, Mandoline slicer, Herb chopper, square cutter, pie cutter, rectangular cutter, wavy slicer.

Here are some meals we prepared, with the vegetables and fruits only cut using Rouncer.

What We Need, and Why

Newtonstein – that’s the name of our start-up company – has already spent over £12,000 of our own funds in the development of this project, which has enabled us to create a variety of prototypes, apply for our patent, pay for legal fees, set up of logistics and choose a packing operation in Switzerland just like all our invention approaches. We are geared up to be able to ship 8000 orders a day if required.

We require £1,000 to for contribution towards production of a starting order. We have secured funding for 80% of the production order now. This is where you come in and get to grab the opportunity of becoming one of the first backers to put your hands on one! We are not setting any limits, because the more we get funded, the more we can spend on new variations and trade shows to establish this product in global markets whilst putting a team in place to drive its growth through retail distribution in other countries like India because they cook with onions everyday!

All quotations for tooling and manufacturing ready, we got our final prototypes made by the same factory to ensure they are familiar with the product long term.

Funding from our friends at Kickstarter is essential to launch the Rouncer properly. Help us bring this amazing invention to life and revolutionise onion cutting in the kitchen!

The entire process of crowd funding will inevitably help us learn a great deal more about our market, our product and our direction for the future because your critical appraisal and feedback will help us perfect our invention, after all, it is you that will make use of it the most!

Retail Distribution:

We have signed agreements with Davison Product Group in the US, we have a verbal agreement with YCE catering distribution company in the UK, and we are in discussions various other marketing groups in the Gulf and Europe to bring Rouncer to stores this Summer.

The Journey

We came up with sketches Prototype 1 of the Rouncer, and started looking at perfecting the design last month, reducing costs as three different blades would require three different housing blade drums and moulds. By creating a clever grooved blade housing, we managed to build this product with only one tool that allows us to interchange its assembly. Our aim was to enter the market long term in the $20 - $30 price range.

 Our revisions produced Prototype 2 which was cool, sleek and trendy. 3D printed using our very own Form Labs 1+ Printer. Once we got this in our hands we collectively agreed that it would need to be sleek and stackable.

Finally we came up with Prototype 3 as shown on all our images which put forward our vision for this product perfectly. We modified the blade housing to require a single moulding tool, the product evolved to a multi functional blade tool giving customers more value for their money!

Risks and challenges

- The founders have professional backgrounds - creating years of combined experience in ecommerce, design & development, international production & trade, shipping & logistics, financing & funding, trend analysis and public/private business operations.

- Tooling has been established (waiting on funding for payment), prototype quality testing done, and a strong manufacturer relationships are in place.

- This is a unique invention, there is no competitor in the market except regular flat blade dicers which can not do what we offer without requiring peeling and takes much longer to dice or slice.

- The challenge is simply to be able to produce our Rouncer in bulk quantities, which will enable us to charge a competitive price. For that reason, funding from our friends at Kickstarter is essential to launch the Rouncer properly and keep its retail price low as the blades cost a lot of money to make due to material wastage.

We believe in Rouncer and are willing to see it through with heart and dedication to the long road of consumerism ahead.

We will be able to get the products shipped out to you by July 2015 if the campaign is successfully funded!
There are things we can not do much about that may cause delays like:
- Severe weather,
- Strike action,
- Terrorism,

But we would like to!

Our product has gone through various stages of testing, use and critical analysis, we believe it is ready!
