Version 5


    All 15 of the sponsored Challengers for the Pi Chef Design Challenge will receive for FREE the the kit detailed in the table below. 

    Our judges will choose 15 applicants to become sponsored challengers, and these challengers will receive the kit free of charge. If your application is not chosen to become a sponsored challenger, you can buy the kit from the link below and still be in the running to win!


    Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
    • Latest Full Size Model
    • Next Generation QUAD Core Broadcom BCM2837 64bit processor
    • Processor speed has increased from 900MHz on Pi 2 to 1.2Ghz
    • BCM43438 WiFi on board
    • Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) on board
    • Upgraded switched power source up to 2.5 Amps (can now power even more powerful devices over USB ports)


    Once the sponsored Challengers receive their kit, they will then embark on their journey of designing an exciting and original project that uses the Raspberry Pi 3Raspberry Pi 3 Raspberry Pi 3Raspberry Pi 3 as the main ingredient to improve and expand their creativity in the kitchen. (NOTE: Even if you aren't a sponsored Challenger, you can still participate in the Design Challenge as long as you follow with the Terms and Conditions and integrate the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B into your design.)


    The deadline for project submissions has been extended until January 1st 2018.
