Update #5

End of Campaign Update

Thank you everyone for making the Porthole such a success. The response to our design has been gratifying and overwhelming.

- Next week, we'll send out the backer survey to get shipping details and instructions from all of you.

- We're working on a Porthole website for further information, recipes, and additional orders.

- Mold sets for the various Porthole components are in progress and we're awaiting first samples. As soon as all the individual components have been approved for production we'll update you on the shipping timeline.

We can't wait to see what creations and libations everyone makes and shares with us.

Thanks again,

Martin

      Can't wait to get mine, but have you sent out the survey yet? I'm wondering where the mail will come from since I'm afraid it will go into my junkmail and I'll miss it!

      Congrats on your success! So looking forward to receiving my twin Portholes. Is there an expected shipping date at this point? :)

      As soon as I saw it I was like..."gotta have it". the Porthole is a work of art.

      Martin, I first heard about you and your work in "Life on the Line," the incredible book by Grant Achatz (I think I have read every good chef's book out there, and this is one of the very best.) Knowing the story about your partnership with Chef Achatz adds a whole new level of appreciation for the Porthole, can't wait to see it!
