Changing your diet takes willpower and as you transition to eating more raw, plant-based foods, you’ll find an invention like the Kitchen Safe invaluable.  A plastic container complete with a tamper-proof lock with timer built into it, the clever storage item was part of a successfully Kickstarter campaign that generated $41,991 from 779 backers in a 45 days.

The Kitchen Safe is the brainchild of David Krippendorf, Ryan Tseng, and Nick Tseng.  Krippendorf battled junk food cravings that were so severe that he needed to invent a solution to curb them.  He called upon his former MIT grad school classmate, Ryan, for assistance.  As the company grew, Tseng brought on his brother, Nick, for additional support.  The result was a wildly successful invention that can be used to avoid temptation while making lifestyle changes.

Rather than take a chance with a bag of cookies while switching to a healthier, plant-based raw food diet, you can avoid temptation by locking the snack item away for an indefinite amount of time and see if your cravings subside.  Once the lid is closed and the timer is set, the Kitchen Safe cannot be opened until the digital read out reaches zero.  Even if the batteries die, the original time set will continue to count down once the AAs have been replaced. This keeps you from binging on the foods you’re trying to steer yourself away from.

Two Styles to Choose From

The new invention comes in two styles to choose from-clear or white (for hiding items and building anticipation).  It measures 6” wide x 6” long x 6.5” tall and can hold 3.5 quarts worth of contents.  The Kitchen Safe is BPA-free making it a safe place to store food.  The timer can be set from one minute to ten days depending on needs.  It runs on two AA batteries which will last up to 6 months under normal use.

Cleaning the Kitchen Safe is Easy and Hardly Any Work at All

The Kitchen Safe is easy to clean by hand.  Just remove the lid and wash the container with mild detergent and warm, soapy water.  Refrain from putting it in the dishwasher.  It also is not freezer-safe so keep it out of there.

An Invention That Keeps You Honest

As you’re doing your best to phase out dairy and cooked foods, you’ll appreciate an invention like the Kitchen Safe for keeping you honest.  If eating healthy is your goal, you stand a better chance of succeeding when you have a cool gadget to use.

Rather than reach for high calories sweets, you’ll satisfy your cravings with something natural like Sun Gems Sunflower Crips or Living Granola.  You’ll learn how to prepare your own raw foods like Live Babaganoush and Smooth Coco Pudding.

Inventors like Krippendorf, Tseng, and Tseng identified a need and fulfilled.  Their success is a testimony to the effectiveness of a new wave of interactive health and fitness products flooding the marketplace.  In addition to raising the funds needed to fulfill orders and launch their invention, they exceeded that number because people valued the idea behind the unique storage container that they created.

The Kitchen Safe is available for purchase through the company’s website.  It retails for $39.95.  International shipping is available making the invention the perfect gift for people around the world.  The company anticipates shipping orders soon.
