Company Summary

Our Portland-based company was founded with the singular goal of infusing traditional kitchenware with modern design and technology without losing sight of the role of craft and performance. The great reception to our 12" skillet in an initial Kickstarter campaign in Nov. 2013 contributed to over $230k of revenue in the first half of 2014 and projection of $609k for the year. Additional funds are needed for entry to Tier1 retail channels.
