Update #6

A Complete Update!

1 comment


It's been an awesome month watching support pour in from all across the internet. Designers, foodies, chefs, beer lovers, iron groupies, friends and family, thank you all SO MUCH for backing our business. An extra special thank you to J. Kenji Lopez-Alt at Serious Eats for the thorough (and glowing) review that no doubt had a huge impact on us reaching our goal. We overshot our goal by over $7,000!

Of course, now the real work begins. We've been prepping digital files, securing our new space, stockpiling scrap iron, building some parts of the foundry, and more. Soon (after a pesky 3 week wait while funds are transfered) we'll start construction on our new iron furnace, aka Skilletron 2.0, create tooling for molds, and order a truck load of raw materials to start making your rewards.

Remember, we're not just sending specs to some factory and then shipping the results to you. We're BUILDING THE FACTORY! Look for bottle openers to ship in August followed by Skillets in September. We'll be contacting everyone for their shipping address. Our hope is that by the time you're in love with your skillet(s) we'll be fully up and running and ready for larger scale production. Just in time for the holidays!

There will be plenty more updates to come as we build the foundry and start producing skillets.  Check back here and on our website. Again, we cannot thank you all enough and we can't wait to send you your skillets. Ok, we're off to break up some scrap iron.
