Kickstarter is an online community that is becoming incredibly well known. For those of you who don't know much about it, it's basically an online tool in which small businesses or independent people can "launch their creative idea to the world". "Everything from postcards to award winning documentaries" have been successfully launched and created with help from Kickstarter. Many of the project you find on Kickstarter have been in the works for YEARS before the creators bring them to this site for that last financial push they need to make their dreams reality. It's easy to browse the thousands of ideas and help them reach their goals simply by supporting them in dollar amounts. If they reach their predetermined "goal", every person that supported gets their promised rewards AND the money raised can be used to actually get the invention built, in stores and available to the public.
This is SUCH a cool site and a great way to build community around projects and ideas that cost a great deal of money to make publicly available. I have had to awesome opportunity to work with my Dad to help photograph his SousVant unit and help to provide visual evidence of how cool this thing actually is.
What is it? A SousVant is an alternative type of cooking appliance designed to help keep your meats, seafood or fruits and veggies evenly cooked, incredibly tender, juicy and full of flavor. All you do is fill the top portion with water, put your food items an airtight bag and watch them be cooked to perfection as the heating element underneath heats the water and your food at a chosen temperature. When your done, just lift the top portion and pour out the water! Check out the video here to see it in action!
My Dad and his partner have been working on this for years and finally have the product ready to be produced at a price point that is affordable. In order to make this dream a reality, we need your help! Please head over and support this awesome invention and be one of the first people to own a SousVant unit in your home! If you are on of the early supports and pledge $299 or more, you are guaranteed one of the first units off the line.
