56 | Mamma MEATER! Here We Go Again
Posted by Apption Labs (Creator)

Hi Everyone, 

Big news: We’re starting MEATER Block Production! 

We’ve received positive feedback from our beta testers, so we expect this stage to wrap up soon and without delay. We’ve scheduled a 100 MEATER Block production batch with a 1000 unit batch to follow. The initial 100 unit batch is a small run to ensure all the adjustments we made during the pre-production run were implemented correctly. Shortly after validating the units, we will begin the larger production batch. In this time frame, certification/compliance will be completed when the first 100 units start to ship.

As we did with the single unit MEATERs, we will begin production with small batches and ramp up in size as we continue to improve the manufacturing process. When we start shipping larger batches, it will be by region and order number. After our obligations to our crowdfunding backers have been met, we’ll start shipping to our pre-orders. We’ll let everyone know when the first 100 units are ready to ship once we have a definitive date and provide a delivery plan for each production batch as we start them. 

We’ve also made some very exciting improvements in the MEATER app: 

  • MEATER Cloud Cook Share – Now you can monitor and share your cook through a web browser, which means monitoring your cook is now platform agnostic; it can work with more devices. For example: your laptop, your friends’ Windows phone, your work desktop, or Cousin Larry's smartphone without downloading the app. Simply go to your cook, share the link with another device, and presto magico, cook monitoring at your fingertips. This feature is available now.

  • The app has been translated in the following languages: German, Finnish, French, and UK English. Look forward to it in a new app update next week!
  • Support for Vision Accessibility on iOS. The MEATER app supports the VoiceOver feature that allows the system to read the app text aloud.
  • Don’t forget, MEATER has the Alexa Skill for the English language. Enjoy hands-free monitoring of your food.

This has been a long process, and we are so thankful for the support that we have received from all of you! We can’t wait to hear from you about the ways you’re putting the MEATER Block to the test – and your opportunity is just around the corner. As always, if you have any questions or product feedback, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Thanks for your continued patience and support.

All the best,

Joseph, Teemu, and the Apption Labs crew

    Great to hear that they have finally gotten to this point. I know a LOT of people have been quite upset about the long delay and had given up ever expecting to receive the Block.
