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!

NBC News in Florida Shares Davison Client’s Invention Story

Davison News, Inventions, Prototyping

Too often today, we hear stories of children who are left alone in hot cars. Often times, those stories have tragic endings.

So, when Felicia Marshal came to Davison with a Better Way to alert parents, who may have forgotten a child in the car, we got to work.

We designed the Sound of Life alarm system, a two-piece system that sets off the car alarm when the engine is off, the doors are locked and a child is still sitting inside.

“It is triggered by any motion, any weight, any body heat… It would automatically sound your car alarm to let you know the child has been left inside,” said Marshal, when she recently took her Sound of Life idea to a Florida news station.

The NBC affiliate, First Coast News in Green Cove Springs, Florida, told Marshal’s entire story during one of their newscasts.

“One day returning from the store, Marshall said she was in such a rush to get the [groceries] out of the vehicle [that] she thought her mom had taken the child out of the car seat, but she did not and it went unnoticed for a few minutes.

“‘I had heard a lot of stories prior to that and it really didn’t bother me because I am one of those parents who says I’m always on top of everything,’ she said. ‘But once it happened to me I was thinking someone needs to do something about it.’”

Of course, that’s when Marshal took matters into her own hands and sought out our help. She also told First Coast News about that.

Pay close attention to Marshal’s story, particularly at the end, when they refer to the “Pittsburgh company” that designed the idea. Spoiler alert: it’s us!

Congratulations to Marshal, another Davison client who dared to invent and is following her invention dreams!

It’s No Miracle! Our Meatloaf Pan is Stuffed with Great Reviews!

Davison News

Did you know that last week’s primetime QVC airing of the Miracle Meatloaf Pan sold over 7,000 products? Additionally, have you heard what just some of those happy customers are saying about the innovative bakeware product that we designed right here at Davison?

Here are a few of the latest snippets of feedback that QVC buyers are saying…

“Very simple to use and also fun. It’s a whole new way to make a meatloaf less boring! I love it! It is simple to use, but you need to watch the video if you don’t see it being offered on QVC. The clean-up is great.”

“Didn’t realize how big a pan this is. Great concept. What did I do before I bought this? My go-to loaf pan now.”

“Can’t say enough good things about this pan. Love it. Chef Tony has some of the very best products that work so well for me. I use this item a lot. I love the fact that your pan has a design that the fat goes below, away from your meat. So healthy and I have stuffed my meatloaf with all kinds of things. It is always a winner for our dinner.”

For the second time this year, the Miracle Meatloaf Pan received great feedback! That’s why it’s no wonder that the Miracle Meatloaf Pan is a QVC.com “Best Seller” that has received a nearly-perfect 5-star rating!

Davison Partners with The Challenge Program to Recognize Stellar Student Achievements

Davison News

As the 2014 school year comes to a close, we’re excited to showcase bright area students who are reaping the benefits of their hard work throughout the academic year.

Continuing to show our support of academics, particularly in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math), Davison is this year’s proud sponsor of  The Challenge Program (TCP) at Meadville Area Senior High School.

Recently, TCP selected five Meadville Area Senior High School seniors to receive financial awards for their year-round academic efforts.

TCP Communications Assistant Kayla Wasko said that last week’s awards recognized students not only for their academic achievements, but also for other notable attributes.

“The Challenge Program, Inc. held an awards presentation at Meadville Area Senior High School last week to reward five senior students for their achievements in academics, attendance and community service,” said Wasko.

Further specifying the awards, TCP’s Mark Ziegenfuss said the financial awards recognized Attendance, Academic Improvement, Academic Excellence, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) and Community Service.

Pictured below are the outstanding students who received this year’s TCP awards: (left to right) Thomas Leech (STEM Award); Samuel Mehan (Attendance); Jonah Foxman (Academic Excellence); and Brianna Maciejewski (Academic Improvement). Missing from photo is Morgan Youngs (Community Service).

Ziegenfuss went on to thank Davison for supporting the Meadville Area Senior High School awards.

“Our efforts would not be possible without business partnership like Davison International,” said Ziegenfuss. “The Challenge Program is always excited to be a part of the recognition of your student successes and achievements!”

Congratulations to the five outstanding Meadville Area Senior High School seniors who won this year’s TCP awards!

Check out the Feedback from the Latest Inventionland Tours!

Davison News

The doors of Inventionland are always open for scheduled tours and last month in particular, two groups of students and a big name corporation made their way around our 61,000 square-foot workspace!

Despite the fact that National Inventors Month has come and gone for another year, at Davison, we celebrate the inventive spirit all year round!

This past month, we opened our doors to students from the Seneca Valley School District’s Haine School, several area homeschooled children and their families and a corporate team from one of the region’s largest grocery store chains, Giant Eagle.

Today, we want to give a quick recap of these recent tours!

Inspired students tour through Inventionland regularly and the feedback that we receive from these students does not go unnoticed. In fact, as soon as the students from Haine School returned to their classroom, letters of thanks were on their way to Inventionland! Here is a small snippet of the great, positive feedback we received!

“… The scenery was gorgeous and I learned LOTS of stuff. Everything inspired me to be creative and I think I might be an inventor after that trip.” – Aidan

Also, this month, a group of homeschooled students and their parents closed their workbooks for a day and listened to our story as they toured our creative workspace!

The students and their parents enjoyed the tour so much that they also sent us a wonderful letter expressing their gratitude. In the letter, the homeschooled group wrote that when walking through our magic door, they felt like they were walking into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory! They also said that the story of Inventionland was a nice deviation from just going to “learn” what they had studied in books!

Finally, a corporate team from Giant Eagle made their way through Inventionland. These eager team members were excited to ditch their conventional offices for the day to enjoy something a little more creative, and we think it’s safe to say that we don’t lack in the creativity department!

From the reaction of the corporate team, we could tell that the inventive spirit was alive and well! They noted that they had a few expectations of what Inventionland was; but, those expectations were far-exceeded when the magic bookcase opened!

All in all, we are confident when we say that Inventionland tours are perfect for people of any age! And, with each tour, we find it inspiring to see our world through the eyes of others!
