Hey Backers, our factory samples are scheduled to ship to us this week and we've been told they look good! Even so, it’s important we see them in person and test them by making some salads. Upon our approval, full production commences and should be complete in 4-5 weeks. We will post photos of our factory samples upon arrival.
We realize a vast amount of our backers are new to Kickstarter and have not been receiving or checking our production updates. To hopefully help relieve this frustration of some people feeling left out of the loop, we will also be posting this, and future updates in the comment section. If you are not receiving emails when we post an update, please contact Kickstarter support and they will work to resolve any issues. Also, please make sure to check your spam and advertising folders and “whitelist” emails from Kickstarter.
We will let you know as soon as the samples arrive. Have a great week!
Hello Backers, we hope your summer is going great!
Before we get started on the update, we’d like to remind those who have not yet completed their rewards survey to do so right away. While about 90% of you have completed it, we need to get this to 100% so we can get our shipping file in order. If you have moved, please remember to update your address.
The link for completing, viewing and updating your surveys is: https://60-second-salad.backerkit.com
Tooling for 60 Second Salad is moving along nicely. In the pictures below, you can see both the top and bottom mold cavities for the cutting board base. Notice how the top mold cavity is slightly larger, fitting above the cavity on the bottom. BPA-free plastic is then injected between the two mold cavities to form the cutting board.
The molds will be polished to ensure your salad makers have nice, smooth finish. From there, our factory will perform a manufacturing test run and ship us samples for testing & approval. Then we go into full production. At this point, we are about 2 months away from delivery.
Thanks again for your patience and support!
