"Mesto" by Richard Chapman

Alumnus Richard Chapman (BA Hons Product Design 2013) is hoping that a Kickstarter crowdfunding venture will help launch the revolutionary mortar and pestle design which he first showcased as part of his NTU degree show.

Crafted from beech wood with an ergonomic design, the "Mesto" is a mortar and pestle with an array of features designed to integrate into the modern kitchen. Its clear shield helps to ensure no herbs or flavourings are wasted through overenthusiastic grinding. It also has two removable inserts which allow the user to make up to three different mixes without stopping to wash the Mesto every time.

The Mesto is now the subject of a Kickstarter campaign that will see it put into full production if the target of £6,500 is met. In return for support donors will have a chance to own a Mesto before anyone else, at a special discounted price. They will also gain access to a number of special prizes and gifts, such as Mesto recipe books.

Richard says: "The Mesto enhances flavours in a way that electric blenders or other kitchen equipment rarely can – so diners can enjoy restaurant-quality dishes at home. We’re confident that the backers on the crowdfunding platform will love it."

For the chance to own a Mesto before anyone else, and to back the project, please visit the Kickstarter page.
