About

The Ulta-Mitt is truly the ultimate kitchen tool for every household! This unique 3-Finger Kitchen Mitt offers exceptional safety, incredible dexterity, and great multi-functionally when compared to your ordinary kitchen oven mitt. The Ulta-Mitt is perfect for the beginner cook all the way to the most advanced culinary expert!

Ulta-Mitt is the mitt that fits-

Our improved cut has a better fit than any ordinary mitt. Poorly fitted mitts are awkward, clumsy and unsafe. Ulta-Mitt provides you with a mitt that fits snug and very comfortable, offers dexterity with the separate index finger for better control, along with superior heat protection. Try one and feel the difference.

The new Ulta-Mitt 3-Finger design offers more dexterity than an ordinary mitt, along with style and function. You'll appreciate the ability to grab a lid from a hot pan, pick up a hot coffee cup from the microwave or work with any small gadget in you kitchen while wearing the 3-Finger mitt.    The material is also non-slip for a better grip along with helping with hard to open jar/lids.

The Ulta-Mitt is super convenient and a great space saver, making it the most useful tool in your kitchen.

The 3-Finger mitt is constructed from neoprene, waterproof and heat resistant fabric great for indoor or outdoor environment.

Why Kickstarter?

Do you LOVE to cook??  ME TOO!!   I welcome any opportunity to bake, broil, Bar-B-Que, stir-fry, prepare homemade soups and pasta dishes, or put a new twist on a traditional recipe. I especially enjoy preparing tasty and nutritious meals for my family and friends. Unfortunately, like most cooks, I’ve also experienced many accidents in the kitchen. These range from hot spills from pots and pans slipping out from ordinary potholders, burned hands from hot oven racks and grills, and worst of all, those painful steam burns from using damp potholders!! I soon realized I needed a different kind of kitchen mitt, one that was waterproof, heat resistant at high temperatures, flexible enough to pick up even the smallest of hot dishes, and most importantly one that allows for a secure grip.

So, long story short…after much research and design I am proud to introduce the Ulta-Mittand I am ready for mass production!

By helping me with backing Ulta-Mitt on Kickstarter, the funds we raise will go towards purchasing the product we need to bring this must-have kitchen tool to families everywhere.

Be one of the first backers to get your Ulta-Mitt before it comes out on the market. I am offering limited quantities for fast 2014 delivery to give my Kickstarter friends a chance to share this as a gift idea for the 2014 holidays.

Manufacturing Timeline

We want you to have your Ulta-Mitt as soon as possible. Here’s our plan to achieve that:

  • September/ October: Make lots of new Kickstarter friends, get ready to execute early delivery for 2014
  • November: Pre- production, quality assurance and product validation for the first early deliver in November 2014
  • December: Begin manufacturing for the injection mold for large run
  • January/February: Finalize the assembly and shipment process and begin fulfillment

Risks and challenges

I have worked extremely hard to get the Ulta-Mitt to the general market and I believe Kickstarter will allow me to realize full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment:

MANUFACTURING: Creating the tooling to manufacture a product of this size is very reachable. I have already created a one unit mold for a test run completed in early 2014. This test run proved to be very successful with online test sales. I received interest from a few large-box retailers but I need your help, through Kickstarter, to launch an initial full-scale production run.

FULFILLMENT: I will be working with our product manufacturers, packaging designers and shipping/fulfillment sources who all have years of experience delivering excellent products to our customers in tremendous quantities in the most expeditious manner. Some minor surprises along the road might come up, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our expertise to achieve our overall goal of making the best possible product and delivering it fast to you, our customer.

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us make the Ulta-Mitt a reality by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page.

If you aren’t able to help back this project, I appreciate your time spent in looking this over. Please help us spread the Ulta-Mitt word by sharing our page.
