About this project
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.
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.

Whats your favorite color?
Instachef is a patented design pot which allows you to cook a protein, starch, and vegetable at the same time with only one pot. This pot sits on three seperate burners which prevents heat from transfering amongst sections.
The neccasary utentils and steamer attachments will also be provided. You will also recieve a free step by step recipe book and instructions on how to use the Instachef.
Each meal varys, but with the preset timers for each item used you can see once you turn the machine on. The longest meal is beef which takes 15 mins to cook.
Yes, you can use the steamer attachment and use a 2” thick filet of fish. We offer Ginger-soy-garlic steaming liquid, and are expected to offer more in the future.
First you need to prep your ingredients, Second press the digital panel for what types of foods you will be cooking. (step 1 is pick your meat chicken, beef, fish...) follow the 3 steps on the machine and follow the recipe book you recieved. Most recipes are less than 12 steps. Below is an example of recipe to get the visual of the concept:
Chicken Marsala with penne and broccoli
Step 1: Choose "Chicken" for section 1
Step 2: Choose "Pasta" for section 2
Step 3: Choose " Broccoli/Cauliflower" for section 3
Step 4: Cut Broccoli into pieces
Step 5: Place Broccoli in steamer rack and put into section 3, add one cup water.
Step 6: Put 1 cup penne and 2 cups water into section 2.
Step 7: Put Chicken into Section 1 with one bottle of "InstaChef Marsala Sauce"
Step 8: Once buzzer goes off, plate food and enjoy your chicken marsala in less than 15 minutes!
The money will be used to start producing the first rounds InstaChefs. I will be putting in my own money to start marketing and sales if I receive positive feedback from the backers.
