Project Update XI: Submitted to UL, onwards to builds!
We hope spring has at last sprung near you. Here in China, we’ve sprung into our updated the design to banish steam forever, built and tested three perfect units, and submitted those units to the UL testing agency. Having focused on this issue non-stop since January, we are relieved the process is complete and brings Nomiku one BIG step closer to your kitchens.
Bam with our submission to UL.
The next step is to power ahead with assembling larger batches. We’ll be producing 60 units next week to finish everything needed for our own testing. Then, we’ll do some final tooling modification and finish the fixtures to do a pilot run in late May. That should set us up for production after UL finishes testing in early June and we will have an accurate timeline of when you can get your hands on Nomiku.
We greatly appreciate your patience – it has been a much longer journey than we expected and we are sorry for that. We’re pushing our schedule everywhere to get Nomiku to you just as soon as we can after the testing finishes and then will update you with delivery dates. But know we will never push so hard that we'd break our promise to you to deliver a beautifully designed, top quality product that will last.
For our Canadian backers, we now expect that you’ll receive your units at the same time as US backers. European and other international backers, we will have updates soon about when we will be able to ship your units out, probably a month after the US units ship.
Lisa, Abe and Bam
