The Cedar Scraper - The 100% Safe all-natural BBQ Scraper

Several reports and comments from health officials are showing that an alarming number of people are suffering injuries and health problems directly related to using wire bristle brushes.

Sometimes individual bristles detach stick to your food and get lodged in the esophagus stomach or anywhere along the digestive track, causing pain discomfort and digestive problems often needing medical attention!

Here are links to reports on this matter;

And these are just a few... there are many more!!!

Hello my name is Eric Paquette. Working in the construction industry and being entrepreneurial by nature, I've gotten into woodworking projects mainly cedar wood backyard furniture. In this, I have discovered a real passion.

As a father of two and grilling enthusiast, I've been growing more and more concerned about the dangers and health risks of wire bristle grill brushes. I've tried the other options out there but I've always been disappointed with the results.

While working on a project, I had a revelation; “…cedar would work great to clean my grill!” …And wow! Was I right! I then created the first prototype. I already had a feeling that this idea was really cool, but when I showed it to my good friend Richard, his reaction convinced me that I was on to something and that this product needs to be out there... We both agreed that Kickstarter would be a great platform to get started!

So I brought Richard onboard, he has experience in design, manufacturing, computers and is good in English (I'm French-speaking), I knew we would be the perfect team to make it happen! After extensive prototyping and testing, we finally achieved what we believe is the perfect mix of function and design. The CedarScraper was born!

We believe that Kickstarter is the ideal platform to launch the CedarScraper and also an opportunity for us to startup our own woodworking company, where we can grow beyond just small weekend projects, to build and market custom and original cedar wood creations like the CedarScraper!

We really believe in this project and that grilling should be safe for everyone, that's why we are setting such a low funding goal. We feel that everyone that wants to grill safely with the CedarScraper, should have the opportunity to do so!

We are able to produce substantial quantities of the CedarScraper with our existing tools, handiwork and the help from a few really great friends. Friends that have been onboard since the beginning and who believe in this project as much as we do!

However we lack the funds necessary to mass produce and effectively market the CedarScraper. We will eventually need a new location, better tools, equipment and more staff! That's why we are launching on Kickstarter!

Each new backer will help us increase production and marketing potential to make it possible to bring The Cedarscraper to the masses! 

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge would be great success! With our current setup and a little investment we can easily fulfill several thousand rewards...

But rest assured that If this campaign really catches fire, we are up to the challenge!

We have already scouted several rental locations where we can set-up shop. We have secured a supplier for raw materials and we have got quotes on equipment and machinery needed to produce at large scales that are available and ready to ship. We also have several people in our entourage that are ready to jump in if needed!

We will start production and shipping as soon as the campaign ends and endeavor to fulfill all rewards in a timely manner.

We are very confident that we have planned for all contingencies and are ready to face the unexpected!
