Red Hot Motor Oil - Relaunch!
Want to make any dish a 5 star dish? Red Hot Motor Oil has arrived! The tastiest chili oil in the US, guaranteed!
Welcome to our Kickstarter!
We've been anxiously awaiting the moment we could bring our family chili oil to the public!
A little over ten years ago my husband and I decided to bring this amber colored delight back into our lives. Ever since then it's been a staple in our family's culinary lifestyle. It was only a few years ago that we began sharing it with friends, family, and strangers. Everyone who tried it gave us nothing but raving feedback; saying they found it to be a delicious and flavorful experience. Overtime we got more and more comments about its unique and addictive taste. This led us to the idea of getting it out there on a larger scale.
With our discovery of Kickstarter and the success people have had in the food category, a new hope was lit inside of us. If successful this would not only give us the ability to share our treasure with as many people as possible, but also give everyone a chance to become a part of the process. To say we are excited is a huge understatement!
"Red Hot Motor Oil's deep, roasty, chile flavors, and balanced heat & lingering nuttiness make it an excellent addition to any salad, grain or pasta-based dish! I highly recommend it!" - Andrew DiDonato, Chef/Owner of Michelangelo's Pizza + Beer in Fullerton, CA
"I tried Red Hot Motor Oil on a Choice Rib Eye. It enhanced the steak from the grill to the plate and added that something extra to make an everyday steak into a gourmet Steak House entree! I can't wait to try it on all my favorite dishes!" - Michael W., Manager of Ralph's in Fullerton, CA
"This was so good! I remember my friend bringing this to class in 8th grade. 5 stars, easy!" - Andre Booth
"This is awesome! Used some in my Marinara sauce and in some pimento cheese. Really gives it a kick up! Spices are so balanced and just the right amount of heat, but not too much. I love it!" - Kim-Freels Martin
"I got a jar today. I tried it! Here is what happened...I made white chicken enchiladas, boiled my chicken to shred. As I was shredding it, I decided to put a little of the Red Hot Motor Oil on a plate and dipped my chicken in it. Well, I almost ate too much chicken!!!! Then I found my self adding a little to my rice, then in my white sauce! It's what I would call the Grippo effect, they are hot, but you can't quit eating them! Next will try on the ice cream!!!! Pretty Damn Good!" - RHMO fan
"Smelling a new product for the first time is quite revealing…then comes tasting it. It was like the Fourth of July on my tastebuds!! Red Hot Motor Oil is an awesome experience! My college student son said this: "As I was eating Red Hot Motor Oil for the first time, all I could think was…I WANT MORE!!!" - Dianne Capp
"The product is good! It is a very cool idea!" - Gennaro Pecchia
Our chili oil's unique taste comes from a dried blend of fresh chiles and other very secret, but completely natural spices. We have to say though, that the chiles we use are the front runner to the flavor party. Their spicy, somewhat nutty taste really adds a burst of flavor that compliments a wide variety of dishes. Mix that in with our spices and oil, and you've got yourself one of the most addictive and delicious flavors out there! It's genuinely so tasty that our family can't help but lick it off the spoon after we drizzle it over our meals.
Rather it's combined with the savory bite of macaroni and cheese....
...the sweetness of a stack of pancakes...
...the heartiness of bacon & eggs....
....the crunch of a crisp and refreshing salad....
....the comforting taste of a bowl of rice....
...or the grilled juiciness of a chicken breast. We guarantee your first Red Hot Motor Oil experience will be one to remember. You'll want to put it on everything!
We are also 100% gluten and soy free!
Every cent we raise will go toward getting Red Hot Motor Oil out there into the public. Some of the first things we'll be doing if we get funded are:
- Putting together all Kickstarter backer rewards and mailing them out as soon as possible. Hopefully this wouldn't take more than a month after the backing funds get processed.
- Hiring our food technician to finalize our recipe for commercial use.
- Getting our first run of chili oil manufactured.
- After that we have a few grocery outlets and restaurants we plan on doing business with in the hopes that they'll be willing to place Red Hot Motor Oil on their shelves/tables!
These three points are the main focus of our funding and what we'll be using the largest chunk of funds to accomplish. If we get even more funding beyond our initial goal we hope to do the following:
- Build a website where you can purchase the chili oil.
- Get a food distributing license so we can work booths at festivals and food shows (those booths get expensive!).
- Manufacture even more Red Hot Motor Oil and work with even more outlets for distribution!
We plan on being absolutely transparent with the funding process. We want everyone who backs to be a part of this experience. So if you become a backer you can expect updates every step of the way so you know exactly what's happening behind the scenes!
We wanted to give out rewards that we ourselves would enjoy. Things like stickers, grocery bags, shirts, and of course, the chili oil itself.
Backers who pledge $5 will now receive an adorable 2oz sample jar of Red Hot Motor Oil. We'll be giving 4oz and 8oz jars to the other tiers. The 4oz will only be available in the $10 tier and is a great way for newcomers to get their hands on a tidy amount of the chili oil. All the jars from $20 on will be 8oz.
We weren't sure at first what we wanted to do for the higher tier rewards. Originally we thought to ourselves "Well, let's keep stacking on jars of the chili oil!", but we soon came to realize that would be far too much of a hassle in regards to shipping. Plus, Kickstarter policy doesn't allow rewards in bulk. So we thought up a couple of next best things:
Your adorable mug right on the label!
If you pledge $120 or more, we'll put a face of your choosing right there on the label and slap it on 3 jars of the chili oil. It does have to be either your face or a face of someone you know personally. No throwing a celebrity's face on there, sorry. Sounds like a lawsuit in the making! We will even be doing this for the higher tier backers, but it will still be limited to 3 jars. We also may or may not change the body the head goes on - depending on the image you send us.
Speaking of the higher tier backers. For you guys.....
Giving out Red Hot Motor Oil for an entire year!
Yes, you are reading that pledge correctly: If you back us through the $300 tier and above we will personally send you one jar ($300) or two jars ($800) of our chili oil every month for an entire year. Plus, if you go for the $800 tier, our in-house artist will create a piece of art for you centered around our product!
Risks and challenges
We have relaunched and have been able to lower our funding goal amount. We spoke to our manufacturer and he has agreed to lower his costs. We also have removed all trade/craft show marketing and expenses. If we meet our goal, we will still be able to get our first run manufactured and begin taking orders. We will be able to, and will make sure, we fulfill all your wonderful rewards as promised. We are very excited about this new launch.
As with any publicly funded project, there are risks involved. Maybe there's a hiccup on the production line, maybe the flavor isn't quite what we wanted once it gets produced, maybe the manufacture’s warehouse gets taken over in a hostile alien invasion. There are handfuls of things that could happen, but it doesn't mean they will. If they do though, we will make sure that people get their rewards as soon as possible. We will also be very honest with any shortcomings or sudden turn of events.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
