Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017

Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017

A few weeks ago, a jury of 39 design experts from around the world met in Germany to judge more than 5’500 product innovations from 54 countries. After careful evaluation, the jury paid tribute to Churncraft’s design with the coveted Red Dot distinction. The Churncraft butter churn will be exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, along with the other winners.

Churncraft has created a lovely, functional product that blends old world design with a sleek, contemporary aesthetic. Winning the Red Dot product design award is a professional validation of something we thought all along - our little butter churn is a thing of beauty.

Embodying the philosophy of mindfulness, the modern butter churn revives the forgotten art of making butter by hand, thus updating an American legacy for the contemporary kitchen. It’s a delightful experience to share with family and friends.

The churn represents our American heritage and a deep commitment to the future of food. We wanted to build a bridge from the past to the future, so integrity of design was essential—compelling shapes, solid engineering and honest materials.

The churn features a four quart glass jar, topped by a strikingly elegant arc handle that contains a gear mechanism inside a transparent dome. The manual power train uses a solid handgrip of American hardwood, stainless steel shafts, and precision gears from Germany. A highly efficient wave paddle spins inside the glass jar to churn the cream into butter. The paddle is removable for easy cleaning. The churn is assembled by hand from custom-designed, industrial-quality parts in Churncraft’s workshop in Connecticut.

I headed into the Designer's Night party at the Red Dot Museum in search of Churncraft. Words can't describe how exciting it was to turn the corner and see our Churncraft butter churn beautifully displayed in the culinary section of the "Living" exhibit. Nestled in between Cuisinart and Breville, our butter churn stood out as one of the most beautiful and unique products there.

There's no better way to kick off summer than a visit to the Nantucket Wine and Food Festival. Last year, Churncraft had our debut at the NWFF. Though we weren't selling yet, we got a chance to teach people about slow-churned butter and introduce them to our modern butter churn.

The other afternoon, I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with one of my favorite local chefs, Luke Venner. I got a chance to hang out behind the scenes, whip up some bomb butter and chat all things Churncraft.
