FAQs from our survey
Make it in silicone: tbd, we need something solid, the winning material now is a compound commonly used in the food industry: it's extremely strong, survives the heat of a dishwasher, and it is FDA approved. It's much more expensive than a "regular" plastic, but well worth the price for the performance we need.
Make it in stainless: yes, after we reach break-even volumes in plastic. We don't want to get over our heads with separate production lines unless we have sufficient funds to control the process; startups are expensive. We already have a large number of stainless quotes, and we may introduce metals before the end of the campaign.
Cup size: my personal hell, with so many definitions of the cup. Good news: the difference between the “legal” and the “customary” US cup is around 1%, so whatever we choose it shouldn’t make a big difference. For cup definition enthusiasts: there are 20+ of them in use throughout the world; the current bakercube is using the best option to get started.
Larger cubes (I assume starting at 2 cups): sure, after we take care of the regular and the mini version.
Europe: yes, we’ll be shipping there.
Canada: Qui, bien sûr.
MiniCube: After it’s big brother is delivered, we need to take it one step at the time.
Volume Discounts: We'll offer volume discounts and early birds… with the shipping cost of multiple bakercubes close to the cost of shipping of a single bakercube.
Specs: Dishwasher safe, holds liquids, food grade, FDA safe, BPA-free... Yes, that's the plastic we selected, it's commonly used in the food industry.
Emails in the survey: we'll use them exclusively to let you know when the campaign is ready.
The bakercube(TM) is protected by US patent pending.
