About this project

Our Story 

Hi my name is Ed Szumski, and I am a University of Rhode Island senior majoring in Entrepreneurship. My passion is cooking, working out, running, traveling, and studying business. I have worked in many restaurants in my lifetime so far and have a lot of experience cooking. I am looking for an opportunity to devote all of my time too once I graduate this spring. I am a hardworking, self motivated and want to create a product that brings value to people. I thought of this idea in my college house one day. Whats one thing everyone hates about cooking? The dishes! If you could cook a full dinner with 1/3rd less dishes than it would save a lot of hassle for people. InstaChef was started to make cooking easy for busy people.

 The Impact


This campaign will encourage people to stop eating unhealthy fast food and stop wasting their hard earned dollars on expensive take out. According to Consumer Expenditure Survey for 2010 the average person spent $6,129 on fast food, takeout, and other related food purchases. With the InstaChef this will be dramatically changed. We will provide suggestions on how to save money (example: buying bulk meats and freezing, buying for the week.) With obesity at an all time high in America, there needs to be changes in the way people eat. Cooking a well balanced meal could be the first start. This means cooking a vegetable, protein, and starch each night. With the InstaChef it is easy, creates less dishes, and cooks your dinner automatically in under 15 minutes.
