  • The design team were tasked with building upon the success & cult following of the Strucket's existing product line. The objective was to design a 100% Australian Made multi-use, kitchen focused device which included the simplistic & innovative design cues & patented strainer function that the Strucket family is known for. To be a success, the Strucket Teenie had to wrap all of the desired functions into a hand sized container without compromising on container space and volume. Incorporating new & additional functions of the grater, weight & juicer while also allowing them to be used with or without the strainer added to the challenge.

  • The brief was simple: Build upon the Strucket ethos of quality, innovative homewares with a new smaller, hand sized unit that combined several common kitchen functions into one hands free draining Teenie Strucket. The design team has managed to deliver all of the required functions in a package that is 100% Australian Made and ships in the smallest possible size. The grater had specific detail paid to it in order to allow it to be made in Australia-it is the only Australian Made grater, and to be used easily and safely by the elderly and physically challenged.

  • The addition of the Teenie to the Strucket family has allowed the Strucket brand to build upon the success of the first two Strucket products and by targeting the smaller size for use within the kitchen and adding additional features the Strucket brand has successfully entered into the highly competitive kitchen market. The design and material selection has also allowed the Teenie to be one of the very few kitchen products that are 100% Australian Made and 100% recyclable while also giving it a decades long lifetime expectancy.
