Rotary International Recognizes Mr. Davison as a Paul Harris Fellow!

Davison News, George Davison

George M. Davison Rotary Award

We know that our founder and CEO, George Davison, is passionate about many things; inventing, the community around us and a great story are just a few of his passions. So, it should come as no surprise that Mr. Davison would be involved with Rotary International, an organization that is dedicated to “uniting for the common good” that just so happens to have one incredible story.

Paul Harris Fellow Award

Rotary International began in 1905 when a Chicago lawyer by the name of Paul Harris gathered several business associates together to talk about forming an organization for local professionals. Harris got the idea for the fellowship club after witnessing the way one of his associates interacted with area shopkeepers as they passed through the streets of the city one night.

“The thought persisted that I was experiencing only what had happened to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of others in the great city … I was sure that there must be many other young men who had come from farms and small villages to establish themselves in Chicago … Why not bring them together? If others were longing for fellowship as I was, something would come of it,” said Harris.

And, that “something” that Harris envisioned started out as a small, gentlemen’s luncheon, but has grown into Rotary International.

His “Rotary Club” met for working lunches in its early stages; but, Harris expanded his organization across the U.S. in just five years. Today, Rotary International unites “leaders from all continents, cultures, and occupations to exchange ideas and take action in communities around the world.”

Paul Harris Rotary International Award

Rotary International recently recognized the contributions of Davison’s founder and CEO, George Davison, when they named him a Paul Harris Fellow, “in appreciation of tangible and significant assistance given for the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among peoples of the world.”

As the old saying goes, “great minds think alike.” If you’re interested in finding out more or joining the Rotary community of leaders, who share ideas and take action on issues at home and around the world, you can read more about Rotary International here.

Davison News, Product News

Mama Smith's Blog

As Cyber Week continues and you cross names off of your holiday gift-giving list, another mommy blogger has stepped up to review some Love Cooking Company products that we designed at Inventionland. If there is someone on your list that loves to cook and bake or who needs a little extra help in the kitchen, Mama Smith has tested some products that just may be the perfect holiday gifts!

In a blog post titled “Love Cooking – Baking Products You Cannot Live Without!” the self-proclaimed stay-at-home mom, country girl, geek and gamer gives Love Cooking Company’s Mrs. Fields Cookie Cuttables, Cupcake Cone Pan and Sto-N-Go Dessert Carrier the true test when she uses them to bake with her two young girls.

Mama Smith Blog

“To say that I was thrilled is a bit of an understatement. Every single one of their items was something I do not think I can live without,” said Mama Smith.

Specifically, Mama Smith said that the Cookie Cuttables were “fun and easy to use,” which is why she suggested getting them for Christmas, Halloween, birthdays and other occasions!

Mrs. Fields Cupcake Cone

Mama Smith said that the Cupcake Cone Pan allowed her to create her new favorite dessert.

“Cupcakes in an ice cream cone! So amazing!” said Mama Smith.

Finally, Mama Smith noted that the Sto-N-Go Dessert Carrier was the one product that has made sharing her baked goods even more of a treat.

“My in-laws live less than 5 minutes away so we are always going to visit them. When we do, we bring cookies, cupcakes, brownies, whatever we have made that week. This used to be such a pain but not anymore with the Sto-n-Go Dessert Carrier. We love this thing!” said Mama Smith.

Mrs. Fields Sto N Go

Not only did Mama Smith test out a few of Love’s innovative items, but she pointed her readers to heavily-trafficked sites like Amazon.com, Kohls.com and Target.com, where they can buy various Love Cooking Company products that we designed!

Naughty or Nice? The Fill N Flip’s QVC Reviews are In!

Davison News, Product News

We’re just one week away from Thanksgiving and you know what that means… in the aftermath of filling your plate (and your stomach) with turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and all of your other feast-day favorites, the holiday shopping season has arrived!

As you’re carefully scouring your own naughty-and-nice list this holiday season, how can you be sure that what you’re buying will be a hit long after the holidays are over? Well, one great place to start is by reading some customer reviews!

Following their appearance on QVC, customers who’ve purchased the Mrs. Fields Fill N Flip Round and Square Layer Cake Pans haven’t been shy about singing their praises on QVC’s website.

But, don’t take it from us. Here are a few of the reviews that are “filling” the Fill N Flip’s nearly-perfect five-star rating:

In a review titled “fun fun fun,” one customer said the pans are a “great idea and can surprise folks with hidden goodies… the ideas are endless!”

One five-star reviewer said “Love these cake pans, make the best cakes ever! I ice the tops and fill them with pie filling and every one loves and raves about them, can’t keep the cakes in the house – they disappear. A hint: A light spray of Pam and the cakes come out clean. Can divide into two cakes for smaller cakes. One of the best purchases I ever made.”

Another five-star reviewer raved that the pans already gave her a start to her holiday shopping. “I ordered one for me [and] one for [my] daughter-in-law… used mine and it was great, came out of pan nice and was fun to make, made a mousse and it worked great.”

Finally, the newest review to come in also ranked the Fill N Flip pans with five stars. “These are a great set of pans for making cakes for my grandchildren… they love the surprise I have in the middle. They are nonstick and clean up is a breeze.”

The verdict is in. For the person who loves to bake (or even the person who would love to become a better baker), the Mrs. Fields Fill N Flip Round and Square Layer Cake Pans that we designed at Davison are a home-run hit for the holidays!

In Time for Holiday Shopping… More Products on Store Shelves!

Davison News, Product News

It’s no secret that our Better Way to Invent has put more products in stores than anyone else in the invention industry. With products that have sold in over 1,200 brick-and-mortar stores and online retailers, we’re talking about A LOT of products! But, do we get tired of seeing those new products hit new shelves for the first time?

Absolutely, not!

Jokari Hanger LinksLast April, we spotted the Hanger Links that we designed on Jokari.com, the website for the company that licensed the innovative new closet-organizing product.

Well, we recently found out that Jokari.com is not the only place where you can find Hanger Links!

The next time you’re browsing Amazon.com (which we all are guilty of doing more than we should!); type in “Hanger Links” and you’ll find the “Jokari 4 Count Closet Mates Hanger Links Accessory Organizer.”

In fact, you can also find Hanger Links at pricefalls.com, newegg.com and GrabCart.com! Go ahead and search “Hanger Links” on Google. You’ll find them at even more online retailers!

Did we mention that Hanger Links aren’t the only new product we’ve found on new store shelves?  We know the Fill N Flip Locking Layer Cake Set was a hit on QVC, but if you don’t do your shopping on the TV screen, check your computer screen! The Mrs. Fields baking innovation that we designed at Inventionland is for sale onTarget.com!

Check out the link, but make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom. Under the “guests who viewed this item also viewed…” box, you’ll see a few more Mrs. Fields products that we designed!

As the holiday shopping season is about to get underway, we can’t think of any more festive news than finding more Davison-designed products on store shelves!

The Fill N Flip on QVC? We’ll Take Seconds!

Davison News, Product News

It’s been just over a week since the Mrs. Fields Fill N Flip Round and Square Layer Cake Pans that we designed at Davison for the Love Cooking Company appeared on QVC’s “Gifts for the Cook.”

We received news that the Fill N Flip pans sold well… and we mean very well!

In fact, the Fill N Flip Round and Square Layer Cake Pans generated $7,200 per minute and were considered a strong sell by QVC!

So strong that just like the Miracle Meatloaf Pan that we designed, the Fill N Flip Pans will be featured on QVC for a second time!

Just in case you didn’t catch the pans the first time around and you haven’t visited QVC’s website to see all of the delicious options they give, you certainly won’t want to miss their second air date.

During their first taste of QVC air time, QVC’s own Mary Louise Ludwig showed off some incredible culinary creations that were made easy, thanks to the innovative technology that we built into the pans.

Ludwig dazzled viewers with traditional cakes, stuffed with delicious fruit and cream fillings. But, she also showed off some non-traditional recipes that we’ve been salivating over ever since!

Among just a few of the incredible options were a spaghetti cake with meatballs in the middle, cornbread stuffed with taco meat and a stuffing cake with turkey and gravy in the middle, topped with cranberry!

According to Ludwig, the pans are perfect for novice bakers who aspire to do something extraordinary in the kitchen.

“If you love to bake and you want to be successful and you want to do something different and you want to do that standout dessert for the holidays that nobody has seen, this is a simple, easy way to do it,” said Ludwig.

Simple? Easy? Delicious? Sounds like a Better Way to bake!

In the coming weeks, we’ll share some reviews from QVC viewers who picked up a Fill N Flip pans. We’ll also keep you posted when the pans are scheduled to hit the air again!
