The EvenFlip campfire cooking stick is made out of stainless steel and is designed with an adjustable length shaft and a fork that lays level over a campfire to easily and comfortably cook your food. Current cooking forks require you to bend or squat to cook all of your meal evenly. Also, the tines on the EvenFlip point towards the individual to make it easier and safer to remove your food.  The hinged fork, allows you to pull the food towards you with more space between the shaft and your hand to reduce risk of burns. EvenFlip is the smarter and safer way to cook on a campfire!

Right now, we need your help raising the funds to begin our first round of manufacturing. The funds raised by this campaign on Kickstarter will be used to purchase materials, pay for tooling costs, and begin manufacturing and shipping EvenFlip’s first line of products. 

Our idea....our company

EvenFlip LLC was co-founded by Jim Archambeau and Mark Reimer. The idea for the EvenFlip camping stick came while camping in May of 2015. After camping my entire life, I was cooking a polish sausage over a campfire, and, like always, I needed to squat and bend to make sure all of the polish sausage got cooked and not just the top or the bottom. Maybe my aged knees and back made me think of it, but I wondered "why is there not a camping stick that cooks the food flat." I brought the idea to Mark, the smartest mechanical design engineer anyone knows, and we did some prototypes that quickly took shape into a simple and useful design. We filed a provisional patent a month later, June 24, 2015, and here we are today with a registered LLC, a Kickstarter campaign underway and manufacturers lined up ready to bring the EvenFlip campfire cooker to the camping/hiking/backyard/driveway campfire community. It is a practical cooking stick that stores nicely with an adjustable length shaft. No gimmicky tricks to make it work, just put your food on, cook, flip, cook and eat.

Risks and challenges

We have received many quotes from manufacturers and a few samples to make sure our design will be built to the highest quality possible, at an affordable price. Mark and I have been in the manufacturing industry for a combined 30+ years and have gone extensive lengths to test out the durability of the design. There have been multiple alterations to produce a high quality and cost effective product. With that said, our main concern and unknown is having a new manufacturer build a larger lot of the EvenFlip at the quality the samples were made. In any manufacturing situation, the designer is reliant on the builder. With our years of experience in the industry, we believe we have mitigated many of the producibility issues with our design improvements.
