About


Tierno® is a game changer meat tenderizer tool with a long aluminum handle and a solid stainless steel roller that allows people to tenderize meat while grilling or cooking without destroying the original meat texture plus saving time, effort and water when it is compared with other tenderizers. This meat tenderizer is an essential kitchen tool for anyone who seeks to cook/grill, serve and eat meat at home, the backyard or a restaurant.    



Designed to be a strong, long lasting, beautiful and functional kitchen tool, it is made of premium materials to provide an unparalleled visual and tactile finish.

 Tierno® is a meat tenderizer built with two main parts:

The Long Handle built from a strong aluminum alloy casting,  is  ergonomically designed. This piece converts a horizontal axis driving force into a vertical axis to transmit and maximize all the power to the roller, its long design prevents hands from burning. The handle is 17.5 in. long and is coated with a food-safe dark cherry color paint. 

The Roller is the backbone of the meat tenderizer.  Made of stainless steel casting, it is a heavy, solid piece with rows of spikes/pyramid-shaped tenderizers that while rolling softens the fibers, making the meat easier to chew and to digest. The stainless steel roller diameter is of  2.5 in. and 1.25 of width.        













When the Tierno® is rolled over the meat, the pyramid shaped spikes on the roller press and puncture the meat to break down the dense, tough muscle fibers and deliver a more juicy, delicious, softer and easier to cut meat.      



Before Tierno® there are two common types of manufactured meat tenderizers for the kitchen.  The first and most common, is a tool that resembles a hammer with a short handle and dual heads. The second form is a meat tenderizer that has a series of nails that are designed to punch deep holes in to the meat and cut into the fibers of the muscle.

Tierno® the new meat tenderizer is better than those because:

Tierno® keeps meat texture. Unlike the hammer that crushes the meat and the nails tenderizer which make deep holes, the marks that the Tierno® pyramid spikes create in the meat are tiny and considered to be superficial. For this reason our meat tenderizer does not destroy the original texture of meat and is not seen as an invasive tool.

Tierno® saves time, effort, wax paper and water. To use the hammer and the nails tenderizers you will need a cutting board and a plate to pile tenderized meat, Tierno® saves one procedure step by tenderizing while cooking or grilling, saving time, no cutting board, waxpaper and pile plate need to be used, cleaned and stored, saving more time, effort and water.     

  • Makes meat more delicious, easier to cut and eat.
  • To break down the dense, tough muscle fibers and the protein that binds them.
  • Softens meat collagen, adding moisture to make the meat juicier.
  • To soften low budget meat as soft as an USDA Choice cut.
  • To take care of teeth and guarantee them a long lasting life.
  • To make guests happy with the meat they are eating.     


Tierno® was originally dreamed up and created by Grecia and her Dad, Fabio. They are both designers. Fabio is a meat lover, but at his 50's his teeth don't work like before. 

This is why he asked his wife to use the hammer meat tenderizer every time she cooked meat in order to make it more friendly for his teeth. His wife likes to cook but she's not fond of tenderizing meat with a hammer, losing time and producing lots of noise, she suffered a lot when she did it. That's when Grecia asked: ''Hey Daddy, why don’t we design a new type of meat tenderizer that doesn’t make my mom suffer?''

The love for her mom was the spark that took them to design a new type of meat tenderizer, one that would save her time, water and effort. They worked hard generating alternative ideas to tenderize meat until they finally came upon the type of meat tenderizer they created.

They made a lot of sketches for both the roller and the handle and when agreed, designed it on a 3D program. they moved  fast and then generated plastic models in a 3D printer to send them later to a casting factory and produce the prototypes in aluminum and stainless steel. 

To design and make a real protype of Tierno® together has been a very beautiful and instructive experience and they hope you’ll join them in making the Tierno® a reality!       









Risks and challenges

I have been designing and producing home accessories since 2000, Grecia my daughter Is also a designer and she is a very proactive person, she will be in charge of all administrative tasks and I will run the production department, so you can rest assured the Tierno® is in good hands.
One of the mayor challenges on this project is to get the correct molding for cast metal pieces. We are already in touch with one of the best suppliers, and will order the molds at the best possible materials, precision and quality.
There are always risks with any production and shipping. But we are confident we have minimised as many risks or delays as possible. We focus on our customers and believe honesty is the best policy, you are on this journey with us and we will update you every step of the way.
