It has been an ordeal of eight years for Singapore-based Zimplistic team to provide an entirely automatic roti maker for Indian families worldwide unlike the focus in home country on factory-type huge machines.
Finally, the much-awaited home product Rotimatic is out in the market and the company has announced the first shipment of the product for pre-bookings made two years ago in Singapore.
“We are happy to share that we have finally shipped out the first Rotimatics in Singapore this month! To share the joy, we invited the first Singapore preorder customers to our office to meet the team, get inspired with some exciting roti recipes and to take their Rotimatic home,” said the team of Indian-origin team members.
“In the coming weeks, we will be sharing with you exclusive information about the latest rotimatic model for Singapore markets, reviews from the first rotimatic owners, interesting behind-the-scenes videos and most importantly, our future plans for the next preorders in Singapore,” indicating that the product is still a long way before making its Indian debut where vested interests have blocked such home products.
Another addition made to the product was an APP installed in the machine to remotely control its functions from anywhere with a mobile phone.
