Thanks to you, our backers, we successfully funded our debut design, the niXaX, and we are proud to say we have shipped to over 40 countries and with great feedback from our customers!
The previous Kickstarter project: niXaX - World Most User-friendly Steak Tenderizer
As a follow-up to our popular niXaX tenderizer, the niXaX light offers the same quality craftsmanship and tenderizing power in a smaller, easier to use model.
You’re only 10 seconds away from juicy, delicious steaks! You don’t have to be a skilled chef to improve your steak life.
It takes only Less Than 10 Seconds for one side!
The niXaX light features an ergonomic design and intuitive functionality. Simply:
- Lay your steak on the cutting board
- Working left to right, stamp the niXaX across the steak
- The precious tenderizing blades push through the fibrous, connective tissue
- Cook, serve, and enjoy!
Unlike other meat tenderizers, the niXaX does not focus on pounding, pressure, or mashing the meat like a tenderizing mallet. Hammering away at your steak flattens the meat, interferes with even cooking, and compresses the tasty, delicious meat like a pancake!
Tenderizing your steak with niXaX breaks up the tough, fibrous tissue that causes chewiness. The gentle piercing of the meat allows for more flavor to enter the steak during marinating which leads to tastier, juicier steaks! Tenderizing also leads to quicker, more even cooking so you’ll never have to suffer a poorly cooked steak again!
The unique shape pattern of our blades works uniformly across the meat with ease witch makes "Crisscross" holes.
Most tenderizing blades are pointed like a knife, focusing on cutting through the meat, Our “U” shaped blades are designed to gently pierce and break up the fibrous tissues that cause that unwanted chewy consistency.
All of this makes for a quick, efficient, and uniform tenderizing experience that leaves your steak tender, delicious, and ready for marinating or cooking.
Our design also features protective guide pins that line the edges of the surface. These pins stick out a little further than the blades, ensuring you do not pierce too deep or stick to the surface of your cutting board. This allows the blades to remain even and sharp.
Our blades are hand-finished by skilled JAPANESE wood-carving knife craftsmen.
Each blade is precisely built, one by one, to ensure the high quality you expect from Japanese artisans.
With niXaX light, cleaning is easier than ever. Simply remove the blade cartridge from the apparatus and clean normally or place in the top rack of the dishwasher for even easier cleaning.
Combining over 100 years of skilled Japanese craftsmanship with our patent-pending design, the niXaX light features:
- 10 hand-crafted tenderizing blades
- Crisscross pattern tenderizing
- “U” shaped blades for breaking up tissue without compromising the meat
- Protective guide pins to prevent the blades from sticking into the cutting board
- Dishwasher safe, easy to clean design

Risks and challenges
The previous project, we have achieved the goal and fulfilled in time.
The quality of the blades is getting stabilized more than ever, and we have finished producing the plastic mold for mass-production. Thus, we have confidence to commit the fulfillment for this project.
However, we still have some risks that cause the delay of shipping or making small changes of the color or the shape.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
