What is a Kitchen Safe?

A simple tool that makes self-control fun.

Who doesn’t love getting to press a big button? Using the Kitchen Safe brings out the kid inside all of us.

Here's how it works:

1) Place an item in the Kitchen Safe

2) Rotate the button to set the timer

3) Press the button to activate the lock

Once locked, the Kitchen Safe cannot be opened until the timer reaches zero.

Seriously. There are no overrides.

That would defeat the point. The reason the Kitchen Safe works is because it keeps you committed to your goals.

From one minute, to ten days, set your goal when you’re feeling strong, and the Kitchen Safe will get you there, even if your willpower begins to slip.

Built with materials that would make your mother proud.

The Kitchen Safe is constructed using only high quality, BPA free, food grade materials.

The 6.25” x 6.25” x 7.5” container is built using durable acrylic or ABS plastic and the walls are about 3 times thicker than your typical plastic container.

From pranking friends, to losing weight, to preventing drunk driving.

Every day we ship more Kitchen Safes, and every day we hear more ways people are using them.

Thanks to its simple yet powerful concept, the Kitchen Safe has been able to fit into people's lives in ways that we never imagined.
