About

 When you prepare food, you typically handle both raw and ready-to-eat food items. During this process, harmful bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms that cause disease can easily be transferred from food to other kitchen items.

You typically wash silverware, pots, pans and other dishes after each use. But how often do you clean your spice containers? Probably hardly ever, if at all. You probably touch your spice grinder after touching raw food without washing your hands. Not only is this practice unsanitary, but it is also very dangerous. Or, you may wash your hands over and over again to prevent contaminating your spice containers, which is totally annoying and inefficient. 

To help prevent cross-contamination and the spread of harmful bacteria, we are launching Kanno — the easy, efficient, sanitary way to grind your favorite spice.
 

Activated by a finely tuned lidar sensor, Kanno will start grinding when you place your food or plate under the sensor. It will stop dispensing when the plate is lowered away from the sensor, preventing excess pour or spillage.

With Kanno, seasoning your food becomes almost effortless.

The dispenser can dispense pre-ground spice, like a barbecue rub, or completely grind whole spice, like coarse salt, peppercorns, or dried rosemary.   The seasoning dispenser can not only function hands-free, but it can also be used as a traditional push-button device. That way, you can remove the dispenser from the stand or mount and use it at the table or anywhere you want. 

Kanno can grind and dispense spices at the grain size of your choice with various coarseness settings, and the grinding mechanism is fueled by 4 AAA batteries (not included).  


Every product starts from a great idea, and Kanno is no different.

While I was preparing food for family and friends, I was scolded during my process for seasoning raw meat. I was caught touching the meat, the spice container, and then back to the meat. There was even a piece of raw meat stuck to the dispenser. In this moment, I realized how unsanitary this common situation is. I was annoyed with the solution — washing your hands over and over again. The market is in need of a product that can perfectly season food, hands free. 

I set out to bring people an innovative product that automatically dispenses spice, prevents cross-contamination, decreases likelihood of spreading bacteria, and eliminates mess. We’re excited to introduce Kanno as the perfect kitchen solution. 

We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make Kanno a reality. 

We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t give a dollar or purchase Kanno, if you’re a supporter of Kanno, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of! 

Risks and challenges

There are always certain risks that can arise at any moment during a project like this. We have chosen an innovative and patent-pending mix of veteran technology. Our prototype has proven that existing technology will be modified to create Kanno. We have selected an initial list of potential manufacturers who have experience in kitchen electrics or similar products and have demonstrated capability of manufacturing Kanno! We just need your help to bring everything to fruition. Don’t worry, we’re completely prepared to bring Kanno to your kitchen, and we have the manpower to make it happen, but if anything comes up along the way, you’ll be the first to know.
