kitchen safe

Best kitchen safe,  This genius snack jar is called The Kitchen Safe and is essentially a lock box for sugary snacks. This clever cookie concealing creation prevents kids from sneaking cookies when parents aren’t looking. You might say it’s helping fight childhood obesity (and preventing adults from ruining their diets as well)

Having a hard time disciplining yourself in the kitchen? We can relate. It’s not that easy to resist the temptation of that “one last cookie” or “just one more tiny piece of chocolate,” after all. The Kitchen Safe is a gadget intent on holding you to your saner decisions.
It’s actually quite brilliant in its simplicity.

“It curbs more than food cravings..

What is the Kitchen Safe?

The Kitchen Safe is the world’s first time-lock container for food, gadgets, toys and any other items you want, but shouldn’t have!

How does it work?

Simply place an item in the Kitchen Safe, close the lid, and set the timer. Once the timer is set, and the button is pressed, you’re locked out! The safe remains locked and cannot be opened until the timer reaches zero.

What can the Kitchen Safe be used for?

Almost anything! We have tested the Kitchen Safe for storing food, electronics, toys, iPhones, and several other items.

Why do I need more than one Kitchen Safe?

People benefit from having one for each different item.  Testers have enjoyed having one for chocolates, one for chips (cheetos & doritos), and one for our electronics (iPhone, Galaxy S4, Pebble watch).

Why invent It?

Even though I am big into fitness, I had put on some extra pounds from snacking on junk food before dinner.  I wanted a tool to help me enjoy the occasional dessert, without the temptation to snack throughout the day. 

My first solution involved my wife Jenny hiding the junk food, but in the event of a strong craving, I could find anything. After playing hide and seek with my cookies for a few years, the idea dawned on me. If I had a container with a timed locking mechanism to store my food, I would not be able to snack, and my wife and I could stop with the hide and seek games.

So, I went about designing the Kitchen Safe. With the Kitchen Safe, I need only muster 10 seconds of will-power, to put items in the container, in order to avoid snacking for an entire week.

Key risks & challenges

Over the last year we have worked hard to get everything together, so you can be confident that you will receive a professional quality Kitchen Safe.  We have a production ready prototype, a factory in place, and several options for packaging and shipping.  The main risks would be that even with our testing we missed something in the design or face production issues with our factory.  We are confident these are very unlikely given our detailed process and we would work to overcome these in order to deliver a quality product.
