5 More Food-ish Kickstarters

Kickstarter is a genius concept: develop a project, have supporters fund it before you start, then provide the funders with the finished product or some sort of reward after you’re done. There are hundreds of food-related Kickstarters going on at any one time, from veggie genetics research and development to new designs in cutting board tech. Here are a few food-related projects you can back now (and do so quickly because they only run for a limited time):


1. PicoBrew Zymatic Automatic Beer Brewing Appliance



“Why can’t we brew beer at home as easily as we can make a loaf of bread with a bread-maker, or a shot of espresso with an automatic espresso machine? Making quality beer this easily: that was the dream 3 years ago, and we’re proud to announce that after thousands of man hours of R&D, we’ve made that dream a reality in the form of the PicoBrew Zymatic(tm). ”


2. GoSun Stove: Portable, High Efficiency Solar Cooker

“Designed for simplicity, durability, and mobility, the GoSun offers a convenient, user friendly package for our fast paced lives. The GoSun is as simple in principle as it is powerful, effectively retaining 80-90% of all sunlight that is caught in its footprint. The technology relies on the principles of parabolic reflection, evacuation (for its insulating value) and the Greenhouse effect, to make the most advanced solar cooking device to date.”


3. Butter and Scotch- a Brooklyn dessert and cocktail bar
