No updates have been posted on Crowdzu in three months. The last “revised” ship date was February 2015. It’s now April 2015. I’m pretty sure this product is dead and Crowdzu is a scam.

I am one of the co-founders of Crowdzu and I would like to apologize profusely because our website was down briefly at the time you were trying to make your pledge. We fixed the issue as soon as we became aware of it and everything is back up and running now.

Twitter had their “fail whale” for years and Facebook has gone down a couple of times in recent memory including last month. If you think Kickstarter is up all the time, please take a look at the comments section here: http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/kickstarter.com.html. Obviously, as a new startup, we cannot avoid some teething pains.

You can check with Glen Lee, the WokMon’s inventor, who commented above in reply to Ken, about why he went with us and ask him about all the services we offer our crowdfunders which goes far, far beyond a couple of canned form emails and featured campaign status. If the crowdfunder is willing to put in the work (and Glen surely is), we are willing to work very hard alongside him.

Please do try to pledge again. If you face any issues you can email support@crowdzu.com. You can also get in touch with me directly at stella@crowdzu.com.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. – Stella

You are not the first to bring your future concerns about the WokMon.

In my claims within my US patent and in my campaign, BTU output remains the “same” but WokMon recycles wasted gas back towards the center to a gentle broad flame. By redistribution of gas flames, you effectively increased the power to the wok(where it counts) without additional BTUs. You seen the prototype flame, however production model design would’nt be a “towering inferno”. I worked on this idea design not to burn down kitchens and homes.

During my research and due diligence prior to patent the WokMon. I did explored the process of certification with UL/CSA and other governing organizations within the scope this device. I made sure there would not be any road blocks that would potentially derail my idea. If necessary made changes to conform to their guidelines.

CSA guidelines are quite simple: Don’t mess with their plumbing at all. period. You can’t interfere in anyway with gas lines.

I am satisfied that the WokMon conforms to CSA requirements. Kenji Lopez’s(MIT man) lab review. The WokMon will have the proper warnings, labels and directions for safe use. Its not a toy and should be treated with respect like any other cooking apparatus. Plus will have product protection and liability.

Thanks.

I see the lawyers lining up for this one and many lost retirements, houses and all possible income.

My cousins own a few restaurants in Honolulu and having worked in them as a child know that good food taste good with wok hei in them. I like to buy one to use at home seem like a good investment.
