This Cookware Kickstarter Shattered Their Goal In Less Than 24 Hours

A couple years ago, a small company launched a knife on Kickstarter that did gangbusters on the crowdfunding site. At the end of their initial campaign, they raised more than $1 million in funding.

Now, Misen is launching an entire cookware set, made to the standards of their vastly popular knife. This premium cookware, however, actually costs less than typical retailers. If you’re a broke college cook thirsty to get that culinary practice in, pull up a chair.

The new set includes a saucier, a skillet, a saute pan, and a stockpot. There are three sets, available depending on how much you back the Starter Set, the Essentials Set, and the Complete Set.

At time of publication, with 35 days left, Misen has already raised more than $450,000, effectively shattering their initial goal of $40,000. Wonder how much they’ll rake in at the end of this campaign?

If you’re looking for a new set of kitchen tools and you’d like to back Misen Cookware, be sure to check out their Kickstarter.

Here’s Why This Knife Raised $1 Million On Kickstarter

Every good chef needs a high-caliber knife, but the best knives out there tend to come with hefty price tags. A Google search revealed some costing upwards of $3,000. Unless it also doubles as a car, I could never afford to pay four months worth of rent for a knife.

Misen understands this.

The small company started a Kickstarter campaign for their flagship knife in early October, with a goal of $25,000 by Oct. 22. As of now, with nearly 40 hours of campaigning left, exactly $913,001 have been raised to fund the kitchen enhancing venture.

This knife is as sharp as a tack. Or as sharp as a knife I guess.

The knife boasts a higher percentage of carbon in the blade than many of its competitors in the same class, along with a higher rating on the Rockwell hardness rating, a hardness scale based on indentation hardness of a metarial.

On top of the particularly high quality of the knife, the price is set at a reasonable $65, as compared to its premium knife counterparts, averaging around $140 per blade. Furthermore, Misen promises to sharpen your knife for free for a lifetime, although it’s fairly safe to assume shipping charges will not be included.

I’m thinking of starting a Kickstarter campaign for a high end spork. Any takers?
