Introducing Yolkr

PRESS RELEASE

01 February 2013

Trying to separate the egg yolk from the egg white can be a messy task, but there is now a gadget that can make this process hassle free.

New Zealand entrepreneur, Hamish Dobbie, has come up with a simple, novel, good-looking kitchen accessory for separating egg yolks from egg whites.

The Yolkr™ is the next must-have kitchen gadget on the market: it’s an easy, efficient, mess-free and looks great on the counter top.

Made from long-lasting non-toxic and free of BPA, PVC and phthalate materials, the Yolkr™ is aesthetically pleasing without compromising functionality.

Its nozzle is perfectly designed to suck out the yolk perfectly every time. Its boot wall thickness is crafted to provide a quality feel when squeezed and to fit the nozzle exactly to form a seal.

It’s easy to disassemble and dishwasher safe. The Yolkr™ is ergonomically designed so that anyone can use the product easily.

For £18 you can be one of the first to own a Yolkr™ in your choice of red, black, white, blue, or black before it hits retail. Estimated to arrive around the end of March you won’t have to wait long to start enjoying your Yolkr™.

Whether you are an occasional cook or a seasoned chef, The Yolkr™ is strong enough to stand the strenuous use of a commercial kitchen yet beautifully designed to stand on your counter top.

Within 5 days of going live, The Yolkr™ reached it’s Kickstarter goal, but will be live until March 10. You can still become a backer and get their exclusive rewards on Kickstarter.

Hamish Dobbie is an entrepreneurial mechanical engineer with a passion for innovation and efficiency. He has experience in product development, project management, manufacturing and food industry plants and processes. He loves innovating and developing ideas.
