There’s something exciting and special about going to a Japanese steakhouse, sitting around a huge hibachi grill and watching a talented chef cook up mouth-watering entrees right in front of you! Even more enjoyable than the flashy showmanship and the delectable food, however, is being able to share this experience with your friends and family around you. Partyaki aims to bring this entire experience into the comfort of your own home by making you the chef and giving all the tools you need to be your very own hibachi chef. Modeled after the same professional grills you see in Japanese steakhouses, Partyaki allows you to prepare delicious meals and amaze your family and friends with your own hibachi performances!
Built to Last
Partyaki is so much more than just another novelty product—in fact there’s nothing novel about it! In fact, Partyaki is built to last: whether you’re cooking the occasional meal on it or you make at-home hibachi a weekly family event!
Everything about Partyaki is geared around replicating an authentic Japanese steakhouse experience: from the tactile controls that allow precise cooking temperatures, to the chopstick holders that add atmosphere and fun to the meal. Even the two built-in hot pots bring another communal dining experience into the mix, allowing your guests to cook their own ingredients by dipping them into flavored broth!
What's In The Box
Each Partyaki comes with all the essentials you need to get cooking, right out of the box, including chopsticks, a teppanyaki spatula, professional salt and pepper shakers, sauce squeeze bottles, hot pot skimmers and, of course, chef hats! There’s also an optional storage and carrying bag, in case you bring the party to someone else’s house.
Why We’ve Come to Kickstarter
Partyaki started as a great idea and—thanks to the hard work of our engineers and development team—quickly became a prototype, which eventually evolved into the product we have today! And while we’re making amazing progress in bringing Partyaki to your home, we still need a little bit of help to bring it all together.
Currently, we are in the late stages of developing Partyaki in conjunction with our manufacturing partners. It’s during this stage that we face the last of our financial hurdles, like crafting the final product molds.
If you are as excited as we are to bring onion volcanoes and sake bombs to your own kitchen table, we would love for you to get involved and help us bring Partyaki to the people! How can you help? Here are two great things you can do:
- A pledge of any dollar amount is much appreciated and will help us take care of our financial goals, which are ultimately the biggest challenges we face at this late stage of development.
- We would love for you to help us spread the word and share our campaign with your friends. The more people who know about Partyaki, the more demand we can generate for our product!
We sincerely appreciate everyone who supports us and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your pledge of support
We’re excited to share Partyaki with the world, but first, we want to make sure our supporters know how deeply we appreciate them. We’ve got a great lineup of rewards set for backers and are excited to share them with you! Take a look below:
Pending the success of our Kickstarter campaign, Partyaki will be able to progress into the final stages of development, testing and finally, production. Our goal is to get Partyaki into your hands before the start of 2017—hopefully in time for Christmas, if all goes according to plan! Take a look at our tentative schedule below
Partyaki is being developed and produced by Innoveek™ Products LLC. Innoveek was founded by a passion for creation: we dream up innovative and fun products and then make them a reality, transforming great ideas into great experiences. Our goal? To bring products into your home that make your life easier and more fun. Everyone wants cool stuff; we make cool stuff!
Risks and challenges
There are definitely risks to any development and production project—luckily, Innoveek has experience when it comes to creating products and as a result, we have foresight as to some of the obstacles we face, as well as what needs to be done to overcome them.
Manufacturing: When making product molds, unexpected issues can arise. To help minimize any potential pitfalls, we have qualified the toolmakers beforehand, choosing only experienced professionals with a track record of quality.
Electronics: Although we have developed the electronics for Partyaki, we are still making adjustments and will need more firmware updates to continue testing. Every update will require some fine tuning, but we’re confident in our ability to resolve any issues quickly.
Compliance: Partyaki needs to be tested to UL standards. This not only means it will operate properly, it also means it will be safe to use in your home. UL testing can take anywhere from 30-90 days depending on number of iterations.
Fulfillment: Fortunately, our factory is located right here in the United States! However, some parts still need to come from overseas. This means lead times for acquisition, however we’re happy to have team members that will focus specifically on this aspect of development, to help avoid delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
