At home, we make our bone broth with the healthiest organic vegetable and grass-fed beef bones, purchased from our local butcher or the farmer's market down the street. Bone broth's benefits are being touted by people in the diet and fitness world, but unless you make it from home, store bought, pre-packaged bone broth is just another commodity made without care.

 

Bone Broth: The Superfood of cavemen

Bone broth has been around for a long time, but it has only recently been rediscovered for the health benefits it can bring. Naturally, large companies have been getting into the space and filling shelves with offerings to fill this need. Pre-packaged brands are often water-downed and contain preservatives, also, most of the available store options lack the minerals and nutrients that you come to expect from wholesome bone broth. Don't buy the hype, make the real thing.

Our story

 Like most inventions, the Cave Kettle began as a problem - finding a go-to meal option that was nutritious and that I could easily fix while in grad school. After years of using sugary "electrolyte" filled drinks, I began learning more about the Slow-carb diet and Paleo movement and found out about the bone broth buzz. It dawned upon me that nothing on the shelf even vaguely resembled the diets of our ancestors, even the ones that looked good at the macro level.   So I started to make bone broth in my slow cooker, which was always an ordeal. Aside from taking up my entire counter, it always made way too much and took too long and perpetually occupied my dishwasher. Then I began to make bone broth in pots, which would overheat and dry out, causing a separate set of issues. I happened to mention the problem to my friend Charles, who was surprised that no one had come up with a solution to the issue. That's when we started work on a purpose built broth machine.  Charles and I teamed up using his experience in industrial design and international procurement, with my experience in marketing and supply chain logistics to create the first machine purpose built to make bone broth.
