Garlic Shaker Inc., a startup, announced Tuesday its device, Garlic Shaker, a kitchen gadget that peels garlic skin off an entire head in seconds, is now available for presale through a Kickstarter campaign.
To fund the production of the garlic peeler “The Shake It Up" campaign will run from August 4 to September 21.
By backing early through Kickstarter, customers receive rewards and discounts the general public will not receive. There is a $15 Early Bird special for the first 150 backers that is $10 off the full retail price. The $50, $75, $100, and $150 levels receive big price discounts for gift boxes.
Higher backer levels receive exclusive autographed rewards, professional cooking lessons, and get to privately dine with Survivor TV celebrity Jerri Manthey.
All rewards levels receive a full color digital downloadable garlic cookbook with over 125 exclusive recipes, including a signature recipe by five-star Chef Joran "Dutch" Bouwman.
Before, chefs and home cooks had to use slow, inefficient, unhealthy, smelly, dangerous methods to peel garlic, but now, with the Garlic Shaker you simply break apart an entire head of garlic, separate the cloves, and put them into the Garlic Shaker. Close it. Shake it up for 10-30 seconds, and an entire head of garlic is peeled and ready for roasting, grilling or sautéing.
“The secret is simple physics. Inside are spiral rings that vibrate the garlic before it hits each end popping off the skin,” says co-founder Matthew Ramos, a former music business executive.
Garlic Shaker has two lids, one on each end, for easy cleaning by hand or in the dishwasher. It is hour-glass shaped.
“Our modestly priced garlic peeler looks more like a device designed by Apple than a kitchen gadget. We are changing the way people peel garlic by shaking it up,” Ramos says.
"Cooks have disliked peeling garlic forever. Garlic Shaker turns the tedious task of hand peeling garlic into a fun and playful activity,” says co-founder Adam Wagner, a former event designer for Apple and art director for MTV.
"It's functional with no distracting gimmicks," Ramos adds. "We've conducted numerous tests on weight, durability and maneuverability to ensure it exceeds customers’ expectations for how to peel garlic safely."
Garlic Shaker is crafted in five designer shades of red, white, blue, black, and silver.
Garlic Shaker is 9-inches high, 3.5-inches long, and 3 inches wide. It weighs 9 ounces. It has a patent-pending ergonomic design with multiple impact points to remove garlic skins.
