Roccbox, the portable, wood & gas fired, lightweight stone floor oven was launched through a global campaign on crowd funding platform, Indiegogo and hit its $100,000 funding target in just 9 hours.
The campaign sees Roccbox available to purchase at a substantial discount to its RRP, with early movers achieving the largest discounts. Funds raised are to be used to fund Roccbox’s first batch of stock.
Roccbox crowdfunding statistics to date: Following the success of the first 9 hours of their campaign, it took Roccbox only 24 hours to double their funding target and raise $200,000 – 200% of their target. By day four of the launch, Roccbox had hit $500,000 and at the time of writing this, the campaign is halfway through its duration and has 1800 backers and has raised over $850,000!
Roccbox is a compact, affordable and lightweight stone floor oven and is the very first of its kind. Until now, stone bake ovens have only been accessible to people with permanent, outdoor space with the budget of £700/$1000 upwards. Roccbox finally brings wood fired cooking to the masses by offering a portable, stone floor oven at the affordable price point of £399/$573 RRP.
“We are overwhelmed by the response that Roccbox has received since launching our Indiegogo campaign but we are not surprised! Given the sheer volume of interest we received as well as already taking over a thousand pre orders from over 30 countries, it was inevitable that Roccbox was going to fly. The funds raised through Indiegogo are going to allow us to order our first batch of stock and bring Roccbox to customers from June 2016 and we are so excited to see where the campaign goes with another 14 days still to go!” Tom Gozney, Founder and CEO.
Take Roccbox with you anywhere – your garden, the beach, a camping trip or even on your balcony. Roccbox can be fuelled by wood or gas and reaches its optimum temperature of 500°C (930°F) in just 15 minutes, allowing you to cook authentic Neapolitan pizza in under 90 seconds. But Roccbox is so much more than just a pizza oven. Bake light and fluffy bread, caramelise roasted vegetables, roast tender joints of meat and create perfect crispy fish skin – virtually any cooking style is achievable with Roccbox, creating unbeatable, mouth watering results.
Funds raised during the campaign will be used to kick start the manufacturing process. Orders will be fulfilled in Europe, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and customers can expect their delivery from June 2016. A succession of capped ‘perks’ offering significant and exclusive discounts off the RRP are still available on Roccbox’s Indiegogo campaign page. The Roccbox team urges consumers to place their orders asap to catch the best discounts before they are gone!
