We’ve had a really exciting couple days of our Kickstarter campaign! Less than 12 hours in, we broke our Kickstarter funding goal of $200K! We’re hoping to keep the momentum going as we move beyond the $300K benchmark.
Thanks to you and your support, we threw our hands in the air and screamed! We are so humbled by your generosity. We can’t wait to continue this campaign with you.
As our Kickstarter continues on, we are also extremely excited to see the press that is coming out about our new Wi-Fi connected Nomiku! Here’s some of what people were saying:
Engadget had a great exclusive about our new Nom–including an interview with our new advisor, the amazing Harold McGee! They said our new “Nomiku design is better than the old in many ways.” We’re glad that’s shown through–we listened to your feedback and we hope the new Nom is back and better than ever!And after offering a giveaway of Nomiku generation 1, Boing Boing did a wonderful blog post about our new Nom as well. We’re huge fans and so honored to be featured! CNET gave its readers a good peek into our new Nomiku and gave a great brief history on the history of sous vide devices in recent years. There’ll be more Nomiku coverage to come soon from CNET–stay tuned!Food & Wine then blew our minds with some sous vide hacks to improve your food (and maybe love??) life. From cocktails to ice cream, Nomiku and sous vide has some surprising ways to get you inspired and epicurious again!
And Seattle favorite and Kickstarter success herself, Geeky Hostess, gave us a great shout-out as well! She’s been a fan since the beginning and we love that she’s followed us along our journey.
Slashgear gave its readers an an in-depth look at our new Nom, too! Added bonus: calling us a “kitchen favorite” :D We like the sound of that!And Fast Co. literally put us on the map for food innovations and the direction of food. As you’ll probably guess, we’re very enthusiastic about being part of the ongoing food journey forward.
Getting in early on the game, too, was Yahoo Food, who wrote about us after we were lucky enough to raise over $20K in 3 hours! Your support pushed us so far and humbly into some spotlight! Including…..the front page of Kickstarter! Woo hoo! Because of your amazing-ness, we’ve been ranked among the top most popular Kickstarter projects. We can’t believe it!
It’s already been an incredible journey. You have made us so happy and we are so excited to going forward together!
The Nomiku Team
