About

 The BBQ revolution is here 

The Roasterette revolutionises the way you prepare food on a bbq. In stead of putting your food above the flames, we put the food in front of the heat. There are a lot of advantages to vertical grilling: 

1. No more exposure cancer-causing ­carcinogens: Dripping fat on the flames causes nasty fumes containing cancer-causing ­carcinogens.

2. No more burnt food: Burnt food contains more carcinogens and has less nutritional value. Because we grill food in front of the fire on a electronic spit there are no more direct flames charring your delicious food.

3. Easy adding of more charcoal: Without lifting any rack, you can easily at more coals to the barbecue. 

4. Juicy and tasty bbq dishes: The electric spit prevents the food from drying out on one side because it continually turns at 2 rounds per minute.

Roasterette is BBQ'ing made easy

Have you ever taken your bbq anywhere? Well, we don't do it very often. It's big and dirty because cleaning a bbq isn't our favorite part of the bbq-party. That's why one of our goals was to make a bbq that is: portable, ease of use and easy to clean. 

Portable
It's a briefcase. That's about the most portable thing invented by humans. 

Easy cleaning
Take out the tray. Done.

Ease of use
Again, it's a bbq in a briefcase. It is super easy! In a matter of seconds you are ready to go. Result? 

Wait a minute, you have read all this and still haven't backed us? Ok, you are a tough nut to crack. But we promised a bbq revolution so there is more to The Roasterette. We didn't mention the three ways you can use The Roasterette, have we? 

Three ways you can use The Roasterette

Option 1: The electric rotisserie can be turned manually or fixed in any position. However your roast needs to turn evenly during heating. With this you avoid your meal drying out from one side because of overheating. Therefore we have the battery operated electric rotisserie turning your roast at two rounds per minute. With The Roasterette you enjoy your BBQ without a care.

Option 2:  There's nothing wrong with manual labour. As bbq-fanatics we love to get our hands dirty.So next to the electronic spit there is the option of rotating your spit manually. It can be placed into the locked or unlocked position. You can also replace the spit with the Multi-Basket for fish, hamburgers, vegetables and much more.

Option 3: Tilt The Roasterette backwards and you have a conventional BBQ; above the charcoal.

Distribution 

If you are interested in distribution then please contact us at rob@foodandfun.nl. We don't distribute around the globe ourselves so would like to work with others who enjoy grilling as much as we do. 

Schedule after reaching our goal

After the Kickstarter deadline it will take about 8 weeks for production and then 5-6 weeks for shipping. Our planning would be to have the goods at your home in June at the latest ready for 2016 summer season. 

Risks and challenges

Are we ready to start production?
Yes we are. We worked on the design for 14 month's and have improved it constantly. Then it was time to make the first prototypes which were extremely good and gave us a great feeling about the final result.

It was time to find the right production partner. We needed to invest in over ninety moulds to get them all right. That sometimes gave us headaches. :)
We made the first 10 units directly from our own moulds and of course these needed some fine tuning and improvements. After that we were finally confident enough to launch this product onto the market.
The two awards made us feel proud and gave us confidence that we offer a great "BBQ-lovers" product.

When we have enough backers we can start production. You will be an ambassador to us and can share your experiences with friends. Our company is called Food & Fun and that is exactly what we offer you.

We appreciate you backing this project, making our dream come true. It will give you the opportunity to enjoy grilling your roasts or any other food anywhere with The Roasterette.

THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO CHECK US OUT.

If you like what you saw then I would really appreciate it if you could share this information. Together we can make it a success.
