Hi. We are Bryce and Kate, a husband and wife team passionate about product design and innovation. We are the proud parents of 3 kids, 7 chickens, 2 hamsters, 1 bearded dragon, 1 beta fish and a puppy!
Bryce has a background in technology commercialization and Kate is an attorney who loves to cook.
We started Culinesco with one product – the Ergo Spout® – which we launched on Kickstarter on July 2, 2018. We met our initial funding goal of $10,000 in 14 hours and went on to raise over $40,000 from over 1,000 backers. We used the funds from the Kickstarter to manufacture and deliver the Ergo Spout®.
We also have a fruit fly trap for mason jars that is available in our shop and works amazingly well to rid your kitchen of those pesky fruit flies.
New Products in the Works
- The Wide Mouth Ergo Spout® – Launching on Kickstarter soon (see below)
- The Wide Mouth Tumbler Mug
- The Ergo Spout® Mini in both wide and regular mouth!
Introducing the Ergo Spout® Mini + Get your own for free!
We are excited to announce that we have a new product! The Ergo Spout® Mini is a mason jar lid that is perfect for oils and vinegar. It allows you to sprinkle smaller amounts of liquids without pouring too much. Think soy sauce, hot sauce or even melted butter for popcorn! We believe that you should be able to pour from a mason jar without making a mess and the Ergo Spout® Mini is one more way to do that!
If you want to try out an Ergo Spout® Mini we have a special offer for Tastemakers. You will get a free Ergo Spout® Mini with any purchase + 20% off with code TASTEMAKER2020.
The mini is not yet available in our shop so it will not show up in your cart. So long as you use the TASTEMAKER2020 code I will know to include a free mini in your order.
