The INSIDER Summary:
- Traditional utensil sets are bulky and take up space in your kitchen.
- The Ori-Kit is an origami-inspired kitchen set designed to save space and time.
- Each set comes with six foldable and lightweight utensils you can use anywhere and anytime.
The brainchild of Aboelnasr and Egyptian artist Anas Elshafey, the Ori-Kit offers six foldable, portable, and lightweight utensils inspired by origami as a sleek alternative to bulky utensil sets.
Not to mention its innovative design is just plain cool — even by Martha Stewart’s standards. Here’s a closer look at the beautiful design:
The six-piece Ori-Kit comes with three spoons, one turner, one funnel, and one colander. Each piece can be used in various ways.
Each of the three Ori-Spoons comes in two different sizes to fulfill all your measuring, serving, and eating needs. Just fold to the size you want.
The Ori-Turner can be used to turn, cook, and serve almost any type of food from pancakes to burgers to cookies and more.
Use the Ori-Funnel to transfer liquid and fine-grained ingredients without spilling.
The final piece in the set, the Ori-Colander can drain liquids, strain soups, remove pulp from drinks, and more.
Compact and lightweight, the Ori-Kit utensils can withstand temperatures up to 500°F/260°C, so you can even bring them to a barbecue or out camping.
The Ori-Kit utensils unfold to a flat shape — a neat solution if you live in a small space.
The utensils’ unique flat design also allows for less food waste, according to the designers.
When you’re done using the utensils, you can wash them by hand or just throw them in the dishwasher.
To top it all off, these utensils are made out of Teflon and silicone — a durable but still eco-friendly option.
Since it launched on April 4, 2017, the Ori-Kit has raised almost $16,000 (at the time of publication) on Kickstarter, with 390 backers so far. Its goal is to reach $50,000 by June 3, 2017 in order to be funded. If you pledge your support, you can even choose an exclusive offer; for example, if you pledge $56 or more, you will receive 2 Ori-Kit sets at a discount of 33%.
Aboelnasr and Elshafey hope to ship the first sets by September 2017.
