B. Sprout 2000 - Cutting Board

$5,857

198

 B. Sprout 2000 was created as a solution to a problem I've faced for years: brussels sprout cutting related injuries. Sprouts, as well as other small, round vegetables, are difficult to safely cut when your fingers are required to hold them in place. The B. Sprout 2000 is a solution that takes your fingers out of the equation, and away from the line of slice. 

Measuring in at 6 inches by 6 inches, B. Sprout was designed to be the least intrusive to your kitchen as possible. In a world where hyper specific kitchen gadgets end their lives in landfills, B. Sprout was designed to carry out multiple functions and take up as little space as possible doing it, with the intention of becoming a piece that you live with in your kitchen for many years. 

B. Sprout was tested by various users, with fabulous results. Feedback I got related to the slipping of the board before it got its non-slip feet, and questions about the diameter of the holes and if it would support all of their cutting needs. Although B. Sprout 2000 currently doesn't support very large vegetables/fruits, it is a possibility for a stretch goal or another product if users express interest. During testing, user Grant Ederer exclaimed that he was "blown away by how easy it was". I think you all will be too!

Risks and challenges

The B. Sprout 2000 campaign is the result of a semester long course in the Industrial Design department of Pratt Institute, taught by Industrial Designer and successful Kickstarter veteran Peter Ragonetti. The B. Sprout team is small, but the amount of support and helping hands that we have puts us at full confidence that we will be able to deliver.

As with any product, there can be delays come production. Communication with producers and suppliers has ensured that the delivery timeline for B. Sprout 2000 is feasible. WIth your support, B. Sprout 2000 and safe slicing can become a reality!
