About Us

StoreBound is a small start-up based in New York City that partners with inventors to bring great products to market. Marketed under the Dash brand (bydash.com), we make healthy kitchen appliances like juicers, blenders, egg cookers -- and very soon -- a Greek Yogurt Maker. Our products can be found in retail stores like Macy's and Target.

Why Greek Yogurt?

Over the past year, we became interested in creating a well-designed product that lets people make Greek yogurt at home. Why? Because like everyone else, we eat a lot of Greek yogurt. Of course, when you eat lots of Greek yogurt you start to realize a few things: 1) a quart of store bought Greek yogurt costs about $6.99, 2) the same store bought yogurt is full of processed "stuff" and 3) grocery store yogurt comes in plastic containers that end up in landfills. 

How You Can Help

We have in-depth knowledge of the technology needed to produce the product -- including tooling and materials. We also have a factory lined-up to begin tooling, developing molds and launching mass production. In fact, we've already created working prototypes of the product that you can see in action in the video below. Now we need the final push.  By funding our project, you will be pre-ordering the Dash Greek Yogurt Maker and kickstarting our first production run of units.

About the Dash Greek Yogurt Maker

It's easy to make healthy, delicious Greek Yogurt right at home with the Dash Greek Yogurt Maker. Just use any type of milk and a little bit of storebought yogurt to get started. Next, combine your ingredients in the Dash Greek Yogurt Maker (according to the Recipe Table), set the digital timer and make yogurt. Afterwards, strain your yogurt using our patent-pending, mess-free Greek Yogurt strainer, refrigerate and serve! To top it off, the Dash Greek Yogurt Maker is easy to clean and dishwasher safe. As you may know, making Greek yogurt with cheesecloth is super-annoying and messy!

You only need two ingredients to make yogurt at home: any type of Milk and Plain store-bought Yogurt (with live active cultures). You can use any type of dairy or non-dairy milk to make yogurt. Non-dairy yogurt can be made using soy, almond and other types of milk. Soy yogurt can be made using a little plain store-bought soy yogurt as a starter. 

You don’t need any special powders or starter cultures to make yogurt at home. In fact, all you need to get started is a small amount of Plain, unflavored store- bought yogurt with live active cultures, often called probiotics. If you like the taste of a particular brand of yogurt, try using that yogurt as a starter.

Get all the probiotic benefits of Greek Yogurt without added sugar or preservatives. A comprehensive Recipe Guide is included along with a Quick Start dial for easy reference.

Make custom flavors, healthy gourmet treats -- and save money on storebought Greek yogurt. The Dash Greek Yogurt maker is an all-in-one, convenient solution to making Greek Yogurt at home. All of the components and accessories store compactly, right inside the main base.

Our exclusive, patent-pending design includes: Large container (7.5 cups), Small container (7 cups), container lid (fits both containers), and our unique easy-clean Greek strainer.

Why Yogurt? 

Yogurt is one of the oldest foods known to the human race. Worldwide, it's creamy texture and rich taste have made yogurt a staple of many healthy diets because it's so rich in protein, calcium, vitamin B6 & B12. For as long as yogurt has been documented it has been linked to health and long life.  

About Greek Yogurt

Greek Yogurt starts out the same as regular yogurt. Greek Yogurt is much thicker than regular yogurt because the extra liquid (whey) has been strained out. The extra whey has additional protein and nutrients. It can be saved and used as an addition in breads, soups, smoothies and shakes. Because Greek Yogurt has been strained, it is more condensed and has a higher protein content than regular yogurt. Greek Yogurt makes a perfect starter for making yogurt because it contains a higher concentration of probiotics (active cultures) than regular yogurt. Many other countries have their own versions of strained yogurt. The French have a similarly strained dairy product called fromage blanc. Icelandic strained yogurt is called skyr.

Kudos From  Friends

"Yogurt has taken the food industry by storm with shops popping up everywhere. Now you can save money and bring delicious yogurt to your home with the Dash Greek Yogurt Maker on Kickstarter."

Risks and challenges

This is a new kind of product. So many people think of Greek yogurt as a magical mystery food that can only be bought in store -- especially the awesome, thick Greek yogurt we're making. We are working very hard to produce a blog and video content to educate anyone who buys our product on how to successfully make delicious yogurt. We've even hired a Chef to help us trouble shoot and create recipes.
