Tired of piles of containers jammed into a cupboard? Can’t find the right lid? Tired of having to sort through a huge stack of food containers to find a bowl and matching lid?

Me too.

I’m not a neat freak. I just like being able to find a container and a lid that matches without having to play missing lid in the container pile. So, I developed Stackerware.

Stackerware is the only set of containers featuring a mountable holder base. The secret is a patent-pending lid and container design with hooks that allow for easy storing. The bases can be attached to a wall, a cabinet door, in a drawer or wherever there’s space. Added to this are universal lids, and containers that are microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe. The containers are 100% BPA-free.

Stackerware eliminates clutter by freeing up drawers, cabinets and counter space. It brings order to the chaos of plastic food containers. 

The "Original" Stackerware set will consist of 44 pieces:

  • 8 16fl oz containers
  • 6 24fl oz containers
  • 6 32fl oz containers
  • 20 lids
  • 4 bases
  • Mounting screws (2 per base)
  • Kickstarters only:  Custom-sized mounting strips (one per base)

The "Large" Stackerware set will consist of 68 pieces:

  • 10 16fl oz containers
  • 10 24fl oz containers
  • 10 32fl oz containers
  • 30 lids
  • 8 bases
  • Mounting screws (2 per base)
  • Kickstarters only: Custom-sized mounting strips (one per base)
  • Base:  Height = 6.3", Diameter = 5.6"
  • Small Container:  16 fl oz, Height = 2.1", Diameter = 5.18"
  • Medium Container:  24 fl oz, Height = 3.1", Diameter = 5.18"
  • Large Container:  32 fl oz, Height = 3.9", Diameter = 5.18"
  • Lid:  Height = 0.31", Diameter = 5.37"
  • Material: Food Grade BPA FREE polypropylene
  • Patented

We guarantee our products to be 100% BPA Free and Recyclable.

Cleaning up is never fun. One night, while cleaning up after a dinner party I had hosted for friends, I looked toward my kitchen counter and was immediately stricken with the sight of leftovers spread out everywhere. On top of this, what a downer to end the evening searching for containers to stow away and save all of the leftovers.

I decided there had to be a better way to clean up and organize my kitchen.

What I needed was a set of containers that would be uniform - no more searching for tops to match the bottoms. I needed to be able to have plenty of containers standing by, but not have to worry about the space required for the unused ones. I needed a system of stacking these containers while using the minimum amount of space, and ideally space in my kitchen that was not already being used. I thought of the unused space in the underside of my kitchen cabinets, and how it would be a great place to stack the containers if an appropriate mounting system could be developed.

And this was the birth of Stackerware.

Add-On Rewards! For an extra set, you will need to click the "Manage Your Pledge" button once ordered, then add in the amount. Once campaign is over, a survey will be sent out a survey to capture your exact order. 

I really believe Stackerware is the next generation of small plastic container storage. For the past several months I've been going through different design iterations and I've finally arrived at the current prototype model. 

I have an engineering team and I have the prototype.  I'm ready to test, produce and ship.  This product is so very close to being real - and with your help, we'll get it there.

If the funding goal is met, the funds raised will go toward financing the first production run, which will include the engineering, tooling, testing, production and shipping of Stackerware.

                                            

This is a project cooks around the world will appreciate.  Well, not just cooks.  Anyone who uses containers to hold things.  Great for packing lunches.  Perfect for storing leftovers, snacks, arts and crafts, tools, office supplies and much more.

I've been working hard on Stackerware and I'm excited to bring it to market. I sincerely appreciate your support and hope you'll share this with friends, and family.

Risks and challenges

MANUFACTURING
By far the biggest challenge with bringing a new product to market is the high cost of tooling and the high cost of meeting minimum order requirements for manufacturing. We have minimized the risks by working with a leading housewares manufacturer who specializes in food storage containers. We are confident in their abilities to produce high-quality parts made only from food-safe materials. Likewise we have negotiated strict quality control with the manufacturer and we fully expect them to meet those requirements.

DESIGN AND PROTOTYPING
New product development offers a host of challenges and unexpected issues.
Making sure the parts fit perfectly together is a challenge that will require careful design and engineering.

For example, the lid and bowl will need to form an air/water tight seal. We have gone through several prototypes and will go through several more to make sure that we have the best possible fit and finish with all parts. Therefore, the final Stackerware product may differ slightly than what is shown within the campaign.

FULFILLMENT
Getting everything packaged and shipped in a timely manner is always a challenge. To minimize setbacks we will work with a reputable fulfillment company to make sure rewards get to our backers quickly and reliably.

COMMUNICATION
We believe keeping our backers informed and engaged is also a challenge that we must meet and we expect do so by updating our progress often....expect to hear from us!
