We discovered that the current butter spreaders on the market are simply not adequate for spreading butter. We wanted to create a spreader that can effectively spread cold butter, and we wanted to do it without using any electricity nor hot water. We also demanded a solution that is completely safe to handle by small children, meaning that there cannot be any sharp edges. After months of ideation, experiments and prototyping, we finally have our solution.
How does it work?
SpreadTHAT! works on the principle of heat transfer by which heat always flows in the direction of lower temperature. The heart of SpreadTHAT! is a copper alloy tube that is used to cool down CPUs in the semiconductor manufacturing industry. SpreadTHAT! draws heat from your palm and transfers it onto the butter, making the butter easier to spread. We made it efficient, safe to use, and affordable. SpreadTHAT! also works on other ingredients, such as peanut butter, jam, chocolate, and cheese.
How is it made?
It was a challenge to turn a high pressure die casted, open ended tubing into a sealed spreader, but we perfected unique manufacturing techniques to make SpreadTHAT! possible. We also utilize an expensive Titanium plating to make sure it is sturdy enough yet at the same time aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The insert for SpreadTHAT! is made out of food grade polypropylene for its corrosion resistance and strength.
Ready, Set, Go!
We have a brand new, complete supply chain all prepped and ready to go in the back end, and we have beautiful retail packaging and instructions done in the front end. All we're missing is your help in procuring the pieces we need for mass production and to experiment with a new efficient coating. We can start mass production as soon as we get funds, procure the pieces, fit them for testing, get sample runs and prove out any errors in between.
Risks and challenges
No project is without risk. A potential challenge could be to fulfill overwhelming demand. To minimize this risk we are meeting with fulfillment houses in the US and in Asia to jump in and help with shipping. We also made arrangements with a potential manufacturing partner to prep a brand new section of their factory floor that can fit 8 complete fabrication/assembly lines. In short, we have worked two years to develop this invention and with your help and little bit of luck, we will be able to take this final step and bring this and other wonderful inventions to your doorstep.
