We have a little over two weeks left in our Kickstarter campaign and are so humbled by the support you’ve given us! We’re on our way to meeting our stretch goals and can’t wait to change the future of food with you.
There’ve been some questions that a lot of you have been asking, so we wanted to make sure you got ‘em answered!
Are you only shipping to the USA?
Nope, not all! We will be shipping our 120V version of Nomiku to the US and Canada. Because of certain settings on Kickstarter, our project is listed as only shipping to the US, but rest assured, we will be shipping to Canada, too. If you back for a Nomiku and want it shipped to Canada, please add $10 to your pledge for shipping.
What about for international backers?
We’ll also be manufacturing an International model (220/240V) of the new Nomiku and shipping it internationally as well! You’ll notice a $10 international backer level in the rewards now. If you pledge at this level, you’ll reserve an international model Nomiku and be among the first to get 'em! The $10 will go towards the Kickstarter price of Nomiku of $149 (which will never be offered again after the campaign ends) as well as shipping to your destination address. If you want more than one Nomiku, please pledge $10 per Nomiku. We will follow up with you post-campaign about next steps.
When are the Nomikus shipping?
We have a projected ship date of March 2015 for the 120V (US/Canadian) model.For the 220/240V (International model), we don’t have a firm timeline just yet, but we’ll be keeping you posted! We anticipate it shipping after the 120V model in 2015. We’ll be working our butts off to get both models shipped as quickly as possible!
What about the Tender app?
The Tender app, the new Nomiku’s companion app, will be released at the same time as the Nomikus. It will be available for both iOS and Android.
Wait. What is the Tender app?
Don’t worry, no swiping left or right for our sweet and sticky ribs. The Tender App utilizes Nomiku’s Wi-Fi connection so that you can send recipes directly from your phone to Nomiku. With Tender, you can create and share recipes–never salivate in vain over what your friends are cooking and eating. You can also use Tender to turn on and check on your Nomiku remotely. Never feel disconnected from your kitchen, no matter where you are and always be a part of our already vibrant Nomiku community.
So why Wi-Fi?
Besides working in tandem with our Tender app (read above) and making your sous vide set-up super badass, having connectivity with your Nomiku while you’re away from your kitchen just makes sous viding that much easier. For instance, you can drop in a sealed bag of steak into a Nomi-water bath before heading out for the day. Set the Nomiku to a temperature for pasteurization (but not cooking) to hold your steak safely while you’re gone. When you’re headed home, use Tender to turn on your Nomiku remotely to have a perfectly cooked steak for dinner. What sounds better than coming home to amazing food every night? Hmm??
But I just got the first-gen Nomiku!
We’ll be offering a loyalty program for our backers who also get the new Nomiku! More info will be sent out post-campaign about the program.
Confused. What is this even? Sous vide? What? Huh?
We’re not a big thermometer or a fancy pot decoration–Nomiku is a sous vide device, perfect for the home cook and professional kitchens alike. What is sous vide you ask? Check out our site’s FAQ for more information. Just know that sous vide will aid you in crafting perfectly cooked, otherworldly dishes consistently (without the use of a stove or other heating element).
I still have questions!
