A must for every “foodie”. The Porthole is a simple, beautiful infusion vessel designed by Martin Kastner of Crucial Detail design studio. It can be used to create striking cocktails, oils, teas, dressings, lemonade, coffee, or any other type of cold infusion.
Since its debut in 2011, the Porthole has gained significant attention. Originally created as a custom piece for the bar chefs at The Aviary in Chicago, IL, it has been featured in dozens of magazines and blogs, including the cover of Food Arts magazine.
Early versions of the Porthole were hand-crafted in a small batch at Crucial Detail but, due to enthusiastic response to the piece, was adapted for higher volume manufacturing and launched as a Kickstarter campaign in August of 2012.
It was a highly successful campaign reaching it’s manufacturing pledge goal in a matter of hours. The Porthole Infuser was born!
Create infusions for tea, soups or cocktails. From simple additions of Fruit and Sugar Syrup to complex creations the infuser is a talking point at the dinner table and an artistic delight.
