Production and Shipping Update
Pizza Shelf Backers,
tl;dr - Shipping first week of October (we apologize for the delay, please see below). Upgraded to 316L Stainless Steel. Made in Jersey.
We have some tough news to share and we have some good news to share as noted above.
First, we have finalized a deal with a local steel manufacturer here in New Jersey. The quality of the finishes we've seen in our test units have been unmatched and we were able to upgrade the steel to the much higher durability 316L variety. What this means is that you'll get a Pizza Shelf that not only looks better but is also easier to clean and will stand up to the test of time much, much better. 316L is the variety of stainless steel that is used in harsh, ocean-facing environments and is meant to stand up to years and years of saltwater abuse and erosion. Needless to say, acidic crushed tomato pulp is pretty unforgiving, especially at very high temperatures, so we found it necessary to upgrade the steel to ensure we are sending you a product that will last.
It took us more time than we expected to get production going, due to this unforeseen, but necessary upgrade, hence the delay in shipping. For full transparency, here's what the timeline looks like:
Your Pizza Shelves are in production now and will be finished, packed and to our last leg shipping partners by 9/29
From there, these should start arriving on doorsteps by 10/8.
As we've said previously, surprises can happen, but we are optimistic about this timeline. All of the pieces are moving now and we look forward to getting Pizza Shelf into your hands as soon as humanly possible. We cannot wait to see what you all can do with them!
We apologize for this unexpected delay. We waited until we had a clear, updated timeline that we could be confident in before sharing the news. We hope you will appreciate the upgraded quality, that Pizza Shelf will be all you hoped and dreamed, and that you will find it well worth the wait.
Thank you so much for your support and patience, we won't let you down!
