Fromaggio™: World’s first smart, automatic home cheesemaker

$416,409

1,269

Fromaggio takes the technology from advanced factory machines and combines it with the artisanal aspect and convenience of home cheesemaking. With fromaggio, you can ensure your cheese is more authentic, natural and healthier than store bought cheese. When you try homemade cheese made with fromaggio, you might be tasting real cheese for the first time!  



Fromaggio makes almost any type of soft or hard cheese (and healthy yogurts too!) — cream cheese, chevre, ricotta, cottage, mozzarella, parmesan, camembert, comté, cheddar, bleu, colby, provolone, keffir, kosher, lactose-free, or even vegan cheese. You can also make tofu or cook other foods by using it as a sous vide!

With fromaggio, you can create your own unique cheese recipes and save or share them in the app. It can take as little as 30 minutes to make fresh cheeses such as mozzarella, or up to 48 hours for more complex hard cheeses. Users can remove the cheese and then age them if they desire.

You’ll love the efficiency and convenience of fromaggio. Making cheese at home will be now be simple and nearly effortless — forget all the accessories and labor that at-home cheesemakers of the past required.

An LCD touch screen display walks you through a few easy steps, and then fromaggio does the rest. Fromaggio also connects to a mobile app, via Bluetooth connectivity, where you can control the machine, read instructions, order ingredients, customize and share recipes, and more.

Fromaggio has detachable heads that feature different size cutters, and even a press, to help create your perfect cheese. Additionally, fromaggio has a removable whey container. Whey is a healthy byproduct of cheesemaking that has many uses, from making ricotta cheese, to fertilizing your garden to preparing a protein shake. 

With a removable, dishwasher-safe drainer, various size detachable curd cutters, and a press, fromaggio is extremely easy to sanitize, maintain and re-use.
 

Mesophilic cultures can make a variety of moderate temperature, hard cheeses including cheddar, colby, gouda, monterey jack, muenster, blue, and stilton. It can also make a variety of semi-ripened and fresh cheese including camembert, brie, gouda, edam, blue, feta, and havarti.

Thermophilic cultures can make a variety of high temperature cheeses including mozzarella, provolone, swiss, romano, gruyere, and parmesan.

After living in Paris for 15 years, Glen returned to the U.S. and was surprised to find people were still eating the same, tasteless, artificial, grocery store cheese. He gathered a team of innovators and foodies — from the director of partnerships at YouTube to the head cheesemaker at a dairy farm, Fromaggio is a team of engineers, designers and cheese experts. We have lined up the best manufacturers, suppliers and engineers we could find. Together, we are on a mission to bring affordable, artisanal quality cheese to kitchen countertops worldwide.

We are collaborating with Genimex, a Kickstarter referred company, to ethically and efficiently engineer, manufacture, control quality, package and deliver the best fromaggio product to market. 

Genimex works with startups and mid-size and Fortune 500 companies, and they have extensive experience in the hard-goods consumer products space in categories such as home, bath, baby, fitness, and electronics. They have experience working with mixed materials and eco-friendly, sustainable materials as well. 

While there are quite a few cheese options to choose from at the grocery store, most cheeses on the shelves are over-processed and full of additives. Imports are very expensive and not always a local option. Vegan, kosher, lactose-free and other types of specialty cheeses are often not easily available. 

If you decide to make your own cheese at home, the current products on the market require a lot of knowledge and equipment, and you’ll probably end up making a mess. People need a solution that combines the efficiency and technology from advanced factory machines with the simplicity and affordability of homemade, craft foods. 

We are proud to introduce a more convenient and customized way to make your own natural, affordable cheese. Fromaggio is an all-in-one, automatic home cheesemaker that can easily produce a variety of delicious cheeses.
