Yeti Touch Defrosting Tray

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2018-01-17

Prepare your food in half the time when you use the Yeti Touch Defrosting Tray. Featuring innovative design and materials, this tray actually defrosts your food twice as fast as leaving it on the counter. The Yeti Touch is complete with an aero-alumium tray with enamel coating. This FDA food-grade material works to quickly and efficiently defrost any type of food. In fact, you can prep your poultry, fish, or even rock-hard meats in as little as 20 minutes. In addition to this unique material, the Yeti Touch also has a built-in draining system. With this, the tray actually pulls the cold away from your food, allowing it to warm up even faster. Plus, this drain means there’s no mess to clean up when it’s done. Unlike other defrosting methods, the Yeti Touch retains all the nutrients and flavor of your food, reduces contamination, and more. Plus, it requires no batteries or electricity.

Give it up Yeti Touch (or whatever current name you're calling yourself).
Kickstarter backers invest in real products from "actual" creators, (you simply don't qualify)a fact you seem unable (unfortunately) to grasp.
Hopefully, they'll suspend your Indiegogo campaign as well.
Crowd funding site backers support innovation "not" blatant theft.

Renato, we promise to improve communication skills significantly before our next project!
Renato
Incredible low level and professional communication style from Creator. My kids can communicate better.
Yeti Touch
Step, of corse, we mean if there would not be the same product. But otherwise it would be unique even though fundamental principles are same. Sorry, hope it is clear now. You can't make it any worse Step, but please don't give up, keep on trying! We are very jealous of your perseverance :D

Well let's go on with Indiegogo then -_- The design looks more or less the same as Tower's product. I also reported this on indiegogo and again on kickstarter. Honestly, I hope there is a banning system on Kickstarter. This is no project for crowdfunding as others mentioned before.
Yeti Touch
Dear John H. Halpern, M.D. and Anand, as you see we launched in the Design category and we never pretended that we invented aerospace aluminum or defrosting bords. It was all about design from the beginning. John H. Halpern, M.D., you are saying it should be "FUNDAMENTALLY" new, then you are saying that all who launch for example jacket, watches, lamps or whatever that "FUNDAMENTALLY" existed are also wrong and should go somewhere else? In our opinion adding useful and stylish design is enough.
Anand
Hi @Dr John, don't think it's KS staff job to vet thru projects. It's the Creators who should create something NEW. That's why we address them as @Creators. And NOT @Copy-ers. FYI. Tks.
Ray Constantineau Jr
They moved to Indiegogo now.
Laura Carson
Is this design available from a different seller in the US? I’d like to get it.
Laura Carson
Was 66.00... now it’s 80.00 including shipping??? I’m not paying more. Let me know if you sell it for the same price as before. You increase shipping charges AND the cost of the item.
John H. Halpern, M.D.
change of shape and color is NOT living up to the concept that Kickstarter is for helping launch new projects. Here we have competitors to the YT Touch that are also made out of aluminum... some have their own tray below/some don't. Some are the same size. Some are larger. Some are smaller. And all of that is a big so what. The Creators post below, "There are hundreds defrosting trays on the market, all are same? " My answer is: FUNDAMENTALLY YES and that is a key reason for the suspension. Unique color/shape isn't enough uniqueness for Kickstarter where innovation is supposed to count in terms of functionality. On the flip side, maybe some want to pay more for Yeti Touch's unique design over what is available at market now. The Yeti Touch creators have my respect for trying to engage backers since project suspension and for re-posting details from the letter they received from Kickstarter. I'm sorry you guys got dinged like this. Kickstarter decisions often appear quite arbitrary. Maybe if you had raised like $1mil then Kickstarter would have done nothing so that they can earn their cut. Their customer "service" is virtually non-existent, violates their own terms of use policy since they often fail to communicate with backers, and are totally unhelpful... including in how they decide to suspend projects. They are such an invisible hand or often just invisible. Most of the time when they do suspend a project then... it turns out they made the right call but there is no consistent enforcement. You'd think they could have vetted this properly at the outset rather than put all of us as well as the Yeti Touch team through this at the other end.

Dear Backers,
We are happy to announce that we are relaunched on Indiegogo! As you know our project was stopped on kickstarter and non of you were charged. It happened because marketing agency that was arranging our campaign and provided company was running multiple, simultaneous projects. 


Another great news, we booked manufacturing for 1st of March and we will not move it. This means we will deliver awesome YT touch defrosting trays in May!

 Thank you! GET YT TOUCH WITH THE SPECIAL PRICE ON INDIEGOGO: https://igg.me/at/yttouch

Bharat, Ahah, Okay :D Write to support.

I have purchased the exact same model that these guys were trying to sell to KS backers as being their unique design at cost which is much cheaper. Kick starter should block Yeti Touch from posting to comments
Geist de la Muerte Gatito
My gut told me this was risky but I backed it any way. Glad it was suspended.
Yeti Touch
Let’s make a bet? :D if design and colors will be unique, it is unique. What is unique for you then? There are hundreds defrosting trays on the market, all are same? :)
Ryan Norcross
No, no it won't.
Yeti Touch
Since we are not in mass production, we will modify the product design and of course, our color options are much better. This will make us 100% unique again.
Yeti Touch
Kim, if we will reach our goal on Indiegogo , we will send you 1 YT touch for free, have a nice day :)
JC
WOW. The continued denials and excuses by YT is just as bad and unbelievable. I will also report the project to Indiegogo.
Kim Jackson
I have reported your Indiegogo project to indiegogo. Hope it gets shut down before you manage to scam anyone,
Yeti Touch
Thanks Martin, 10 people already copied same link before you :) We wanted to have a product which is made by professionals in industrial design, previously we were facing with the great design which was not possible to manufacture. And we didn't even think that such situation is possible. Anyhow it was a great experience.
Martin Stephenson
OK - Just read through the comments and it's hard to believe what's happened here. You didn't even change the look of the existing tower brand tray !!

So am I correct in reading that someone else (a small Korean company) came up with the design, colour and features of your product? This then somehow “accidentally” turns out to be identical to a product already on sale outside the US. I’m just curious as to why this wasn’t designed and created by your team. That way you would know it was an original product. Please know I’m not throwing accusations, but surely you can understand how this looks to a backer.
Yeti Touch
Gunner, only because you are that curious, here are all 3 reasons copied from Kickstarter email and explanation to them: "Outstanding fulfillment issues related to a previously successful crowdfunding campaign" It was written about another project of Reproject agency that was running our project as well, including all designs, video, marketing and legal things. Anyhow that project already shipped out all the products (45 days delay with the orders outside the US) http://kck.st/2ukW4xJ "Running multiple, simultaneous projects" At the same time with our project, Reproject agency was running following project http://kck.st/2ier0f6 "Failure or unwillingness to clearly communicate with backers". We did not get any kind of warning, just suspended 3 days before the end. We listed ALL the reasons from the letter!!! We don't have anything else to say and hope that it is clear now :) Please be sure that reason you are trying to promote is not right. Thank you so much for your message! And we hope that Kickstarter team will not be mad that we listed everything here. Warm Regards,
YT touch
Gunner
Produce the (unaltered and unabridged) Suspension email received from Kickstarter if you value your credibility with Kickstarter backers.
This is my 3rd request for that piece of information, why no answers?
None to give?
What specifically were the "so called":" technical problems (according to you) that caused Kickstarter to Suspend your campaign?
Excepting of course your theft of another Creators design for profit?
Yeti Touch
Ryan Norcross, since we are not in mass production, we will modify the product design and of course, our color options are much better. This will make us 100% unique again.
Ryan Norcross
So what makes yours the bees knees when it seems the exact one is on Amazon?
Yeti Touch
KickStar, due to suspension you will not be charged at all, do not worry.
Yeti Touch
Diana Goldberg, please advise what to clear up, we very open to do that. We changed to YT touch because Yeti happened to be registered trademark for kitchen products in the US...
KickStar
Due to the suspension, are backers on the hook or weren't any cards charged? Thanks
Diana Goldberg
You may have trouble getting pledges on Indiegogo until you can clear things up with Kickstarter. Also curious why you changed the name of the product from Yeti Touch to YT Touch part way through the campaign.
Yeti Touch
And the most important point, we sent our project for approval to Kickstarter team, but no reply. And also no reply on our email with the explanations and questions. We love Kickstarter and were thinking that it will last for many years and we were thinking about new products development already, but... :)
Yeti Touch
JC Asis, we would love to, but it is a too big risk. We checked many suspended projects and we understood that Kickstarter is always suspending on the last 1-3 days. We are already in big minus and though that we will not survive after one more suspending 1-3 days before the end date.
JC Asis
Hi Team. Why launch in Indiegogo? Why not clear your name here and relaunch in KS? :)
Gunner
Your credibility is non-existent.

w00t - mine arrived today! :-) really good (from Amazon, obvs)
Gunner
Former backers would prefer Yeti Touch posted the advisory Yeti Touch received from Kickstarter Suspending this campaign (unaltered and unabridged) as an Update Yeti Touch received from Kickstarter.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Yeti Touch
Dear Backers, is there anyone who would prefer YT touch style defrosting tray?
Yeti Touch
James Thruster Burt, yes, you are the third one who is sending it to us :) But black is better, nobody wants green.

Tower 3-In-1 Defrosting Tray https://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/tower-defrosting-tray… Look familiar?
Gunner
The reason was quite obvious to most Kickstarter backers regarding why your campaign was suspended, if you have knowledge of other so called "technical" reasons, post the Kickstarter advisory you received (unaltered or unabridged) listing those reasons, otherwise you're still attempting to mislead "former" backers.
It's your credibility in question.
Not Kickstarter.
Yeti Touch
Gunner, we were not suspended because of the product or because Kickstarter thought we can't start mass production... Other, more technical reason.
Gunner
A bit disingenuous.
Kickstarter isn't in the habit of Suspending campaigns without valid "verifiable" reasons.
Yeti Touch
Sam, we didn’t insult any of our backers! We are very sorry if anybody got such feeling. 1 time one of us wrote not a nice thing about a backer that made a pledge wrote misleading information about us and about other projects of the agency that was running our project and immediately canceled the pledge. We are so sorry for that, unfortunately, we can’t change it anymore... It is very sad to see how happy you are that Kickstarter blocked our project, anyhow, we will make our project come to life!!! we might change the design now, because we want to have absolutely unique project, but we will not stop, that is for sure!!! A lot of people are waiting until our product will be available.
Sam Bettencourt
Good on Kickstarter for suspending this. Insulting backers and selling an identical product that is already on the market is certainly a practice that should not be tolerate.
Gunner
Seriously!!
Get real Yeti Touch, design something unique and original without ripping off other Creators.
"aouc" did Kickstarter backers a public service, Kickstarter backers with functioning grey matter are naturally grateful to "aouc" for exposing this scam.
Yeti Touch
Norma, Ryan Norcross, we will inform us soon as we start to sell in retail in USA and Canada.
