Woohoo! Thanks to you all, we're well on our way to making GIR peelers, mashers, basting brushes, spaghetti spoons, and tongs a reality.
As I mentioned in earlier updates, we got a head start on production a couple weeks ago and our November delivery timeline is in our sights. We'll be back in touch soon with lots more on the post-campaign survey process (that's where you'll pick colors and tell us where to send the goods), but we wanted to share this note of thanks before we let another minute go by. We did it! High five!

The results are in, and we're delighted to announce your collective choices for our stretch goal colors!
First up: BLACK. With a plurality at nearly 40% of the vote across all tools, this classic is making a comeback. We're bringing black in as a color option for every tool in this campaign—peelers, mashers, basting brushes, and tongs. Best of all, we'll be able to do it within the originally planned delivery timeline; we're putting black tools into production right alongside everything else, so we can deliver rewards well in time for holiday gift-giving this November.
Next up: TONGS in more colors. Hat tip to a couple very persistent backers on this one—you know who you are ;) We're so happy to have answered the call for more tong colors with not just one extra, but three! In addition to navy, we're going to be able to produce tongs in RED, SLATE, and BLACK (as mentioned above, of course).
Thanks to everyone who voted! Having your feedback be a part of what we create tops our list of "reasons to come to work every day."
Sam and the GIR Team
Projects We Love: GIR Edition
The Kickstarter community is tight - and it's all about helping each other out. From chatting on internal message boards to spreading the word about a cool product or endeavor, as creators we often find ourselves connecting with other teams and seeing how we can lend a hand. Below, you'll find three projects that were hoping for a little extra help getting the news out. Naturally, we volunteered!
We're no strangers to silicone in the kitchen. So when Besovida created a food safe, heat safe container with a minimalist design perfect from oven to table, you bet we were excited to share it. Besovida enables you to prep, cook, and serve your food all in one container.
These self-cleaning underwear for men and women are made using pure silver fibers to keep your downstairs free from odor and bacteria for up to a week. (We haven't tested that theory yet, but call us around fulfillment time and we'll let you know how many of the GIR team have been stuck in the warehouse playing elf for at least that long!)
They still have early bird rewards available, too!
Easy Wash is a manual washing machine and dryer that allows you to quickly and effortlessly wash any type of clothing, wherever you are—in just 15 minutes! It's the perfect solution when you have limited access to an electric washing machine. (Between this and the silver undies above, your laundry woes will be over for a long time to come.)
Thank you + stretch goal survey!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. What a great campaign so far - you've propelled us to $75k in short order (after funding the project in just about an hour!), and we're excited to see what the next couple weeks bring. We've had our heads down trying to get these products into production early, so we can have everything delivered on time—or ahead of schedule—in just a couple months. We'll keep at it, but wanted to check in with a stretch goal announcement. Here goes!
Stretch Goal: More Colors!
We've received inquiries and comments about bringing some of your favorite classic GIR colors into this campaign, and we're answering the call—but in true GIR fashion, we'd love to have you help us make the decision.
We're looking at adding a color or two to the lineup, and we're letting you all decide! Click the link to choose your favorites, and we'll do our best to bring them all to life:
The final round of production samples arrived at our office this week, and we wanted to give you a sneak peek. Colors, finishes, and overall quality are right up there with what we've been hoping for, so we've greenlit mass production! We're hoping we can get everything in and shipped on the early side so you all can start holiday cooking with lots of fun new tools in the mix.
