3 in 1 Water Saving Balanced Colander

$126,867

Nothing…and I mean nothing is as frustrating as watching the freshly-cleaned vegetables and fruits you just rinsed fall into the sink AFTER you’ve rinsed them. Even worse, if you don’t have a good grip on your items, they can ALL fall back into the sink – taking your sanity with them.

The Equilibric colander reduces the amount of water needed to wash your fruits and vegetables by 60% - all while removing twice as many contaminants! You will never have to worry about items in the sink again because this design saves you time and frustration.

Its ergonomic design keeps the vegetables upright and safe as the water bowl drains the dirty water away, cleaning your foods and keeping your clean items safe from spillage.


The colander also serves as a great serving dish for you.  You don’t have to worry about using more dishes than necessary just because you need something to put them in afterwards.  Drain the excess water from your vegetables - and serve your fruits or salads in the same dish.

Trying to defrost something at room temperature turns into a huge problem for most cooks.  Water often winds up all over the counter creating an even bigger mess, and more work for you.

With typical colanders, lots of dirt and other contaminates can transfer to your clean serving dishes.  But with the Equilibric colander, its washing machine motion helps remove 90% of the dirt and bacteria from your foods – giving you a healthier, more nutrient rich meal!

As you can see, the Equilibric colander saves you time and energy.  It’s also incredibly efficient, sanitary, and environmentally conscious.  Moreover it saves extra money on your water bill.

Equilibric has a very well considered hole slots pattern that allows to drain the excess water fast and simple. Equilibric Bowl is made from a high quality polypropylene which is an unharmful material to dine from. Equilibric Bowl design has a special spin system which uses the force of gravity to speed up all kitchen tasks.






Story. Team. Development. Future.

My name is Ann and I’ve been working in design for eight years. I’ve graduated twice and worked my way from the position of a common designer to art director. My husband Tim is an engineer and likes inventing. Together we’ve come up with Equilibric.

Me and Tim were born in the countryside, and despite growing up in an urban area, we always preferred home food over fast food l, which bears no benefit or proper nutrients, often being harmful. So we cook home a lot and try to ease doing so process as much as possible.

Four years ago I had the idea to improve the typical colander design, after having bought all kinds of them in stores, inspired by design of various items and inventions, from spoons to airplanes. So I took a pencil and got to draw.


Thanks to Tim, my sketches and concepts came to life as working prototypes.



The most problematic part was talking to various China-based factories. We were sending the design and info over, but struggled with communication problems. But ultimately, we found a manufacturer and a manager that helped us on this stage after it had stretched on for a while.

Two years ago, Sabina joined us as a co-founder, responsible for communications and marketing. Without her, we wouldn’t have been able to make it to Kickstarter and organize everything.

We’re really grateful to Inpixel, the company that took care of the video material for us, delivering calmly great results despite my quite extensive list of requests.

Our future plans is to introduce a brand new type of colander for enthusiasts and kitchen professionals. I promise, you haven’t seen anything like it before, and we’ll be showcasing it on Kickstarter right from the concept stage! We’re also creating a USB-powered heating food container, which might possible have its own battery.

Our global goal is to create a brand of smart kitchen gadgets and food containers (both with and without heating) for carrying your dishes.

Please help us bring our plans to life, and become part of Equilibric!
