Paula Deen’s Website is Now Selling Dog Food Packaging We Designed!

Hugs Pet Products, Product News

PD General Store

As fall approaches, the excitement continues to build around the partnership that our friends at Hugs Pet Products have formed with celebrity chef and TV host Paula Deen. With Hugs, Deen has just released her own brand of dog food, which is now selling at her website’s General Store!

Deen’s website is not the only place where consumers will be able to purchase her special recipes of dog food. They’re already available from Hugs Pet Products and the chicken, beef and lamb varieties are soon to be available in various stores around the country.

Even before these pet-pampering foods hit stores this fall, we’ve received a first glimpse of the products and packaging from our friends over at Inventionland. Late last month, the very first shipment of Deen’s dog food arrived at their creative space!

The Inventionland design team was responsible for creating the Paula Deen dog food packaging. Just take a look at the back of the bags for proof!

Paula Deen Packaging

You can order your pup’s first bag of Paula Deen’s dog food from Hugs Pet Products or from Deen’s General Store. But, today, we’re giving you a sneak peek at the packaging:

Our Better Way to Make Bacon Sizzles on QVC!

Davison News, Featured Invention, Product News

 

Did you catch “In the Kitchen with David” on QVC last night?

Let’s just say the show left us sizzling with excitement!

Culinary Professional Chef Tony Notaro was back in David Venable’s kitchen showing off one of our latest baking product ideas, the Bacon Baker!

Dubbed the Bacon Bakin’ Pan by Chef Tony, the innovative product that we designed stemmed from our client Jean’s Meatball Baker idea. It provides a Better Way to make healthier bacon by vertically-baking bacon and elevating each individual slice out of its own grease.

Even before the dynamic duo debuted the Bacon Bakin’ Pan, Venable was hyping up the innovative product early in the show, tantalizing viewers with the “brand new way to cook divine swine.”

Once Chef Tony began touting the product that we created at our design facility and showing off just what the Bacon Bakin’ Pan can do, incredible sales immediately followed.

Within minutes, 500 Bacon Bakin’ Pans had sold.

Chef Tony and Venable continued to showcase perfectly cooked bacon, which the pan allows to cook on its side, preserving “all the flavor without the guilt,” as Chef Tony noted.

QVC viewers heard his message and by the time the segment was over, 1,800 of the 8,500 available pans remained and Venable said the phone lines remained “super busy.”

He wasn’t kidding! Only moments later, QVC.com read, “We’re sorry, this item is not available at this time.” Yes, that’s right! The Bacon Bakin’ Pan sold out on its debut QVC appearance!

We couldn’t be more excited for our client, Jean, Chef Tony and the entire team that worked to bring the innovative Bacon Bakin’ Pan to QVC!

And, don’t worry if you missed out last night; the innovative Bacon Bakin’ Pan is now available on QVC.com!

“Get your paws on these COOL products” was the subject line of an email from Bed Bath & Beyond that caught our attention!

The 20% off online offer showcased our Chillz Comfort Cooling Gel Pet Pad as the very first pet cooling item in the email!

Bed Bath and Beyond Email

You may recall that our client, Diana, came up with the idea for the Gel Pet Pad to bring comfort to her friend Bobby’s pup, Ripley, in the hot Atlanta heat.

Chillz Inventor- Diana

We can only assume that Diana is as proud as we are to see her pad featured at Bed Bath & Beyond. This isn’t the first time the retailer has suggested the item to help keep pets cool during the dog days of summer, either. But, what are they saying about the Chillz Comfort Cooling Gel Pet Pad now?

“COOL PAD, dog!”

The special email that featured the cooling mat that we designed went out to anyone who had purchased an item online from Bed Bath & Beyond over the last few months.

Congratulations to our client, Diana, on her new product idea’s continued success!

Celebrating National Inventors Month the Davison Way!

Product News

Twister Bolts

What better way to celebrate our industry and National Inventors Month than by discovering some of the fruits of our clients’ and our own labor?

Well, today, we’ve got news from our founder and CEO George Davison that takes our National Inventors Month celebration to a multi-branded level!

You’re may already be familiar with our clients, Gary and Ruth. Their invention, Twister Bolts, has been one of the most successful products that we’ve ever designed.

Not only do the Twister Bolts continue to sell at major hardware retailers like Lowe’s, Home Depot and Ace Hardware; but, Gary and Ruth continue to collect royalties on their Better Way to secure toilets to bathroom floors.

Maybe you’ve even seen Twister Bolts at a local hardware store before. But, what Mr. Davison has to reveal about Home Depot’s own private label, Everbilt, we can guarantee that you’ve never seen until now. In fact, now you can even see it nationwide!

Hear it straight from Mr. Davison here:

Talk about some major product success! As Mr. Davison explained, once a client finds a Better Way to do something and it is designed, then licensed, it can be branded under multiple names and sell in several different stores… all at the same time!

So, this week, we’re celebrating National Inventors Month by showcasing our clients, Gary and Ruth, and their multi-branded success with Twister Bolts! Congratulations to Gary, Ruth and everyone at Davison and our very own invention factory Inventionland who helped them bring their Better Way to stores nationwide!

Happy National Inventors Month!

In the News: The Davison-designed Clip & Drain

Product News

Davison- designed Clip & Drain

It’s National Inventors Month and this month-long event celebrates inventions and creativity; at Davison, we have lots of both, thanks to our innovative inventors!

On Wednesday, May 6, one of our client’s inventions, the Clip & Drain, was featured on NECN, an NBC affiliate in New England.

The Davison-designed Clip & Drain was invented by our client in order to create a Better Way to drain pasta and more. It was featured in the celebrity-edition of “Does it Work?” and we couldn’t be more excited to share the news with you!

Celebrity chef Chris Coombs from Deauxave in Boston’s Back Bay put our client’s invention to the test to see if the Clip & Drain would live up to its promise of fitting on the edge of most sizes of pots and pans to take the place of bulky colanders.

In the segment, Coombs tested everything from pasta to potatoes to see if the Clip & Drain stood by its tagline: now draining won’t be a strain.

Did the Clip & Drain pass the test? You’ll have to watch the video to find out!

The Clip & Drain is available in stores like Sur La Table, Home Depot and Target to name a few. Get yours today!

Davison-designed Products were on EVINE Live!

EVINE Live Logo

On Friday, May 8, our friends at Hugs Pet Products, who we have designed and licensed products to, had some exciting news to share!

Their products were featured on EVINE Live! But, the excitement didn’t stop there. Why? Because Paula Deen was showcasing the Hugs Pet Products Silicone Dog Treat Pan and Dog Treat Mixes during the “Paula Deen’s Kitchen” segment!

In the segment, which aired from 5- 6:30 p.m. EST, Deen was touting the Davison-designed Silicone Dog Treat Pan that we licensed to Hugs Pet Products!

Silicone Dog Treat Pan on EVINE Live

We created the Silicone Dog Treat Pan for a client who wanted to provide a healthy alternative to store bought treats. The flexible baking pan enables health-conscious pet owners the chance to create fresh, homemade treats for Fido!

The baking pan makes 15 paw-shaped dog treats and the silicone center is flexible for easy removal of the baked goods. The pan also has a steel-reinforced rim on the inside, which provides a sturdier frame for carrying from the oven to the countertop!

Paula Deen, being an animal lover herself, wanted to help pet owners bake paw-shaped treats for their canine friends, so she came up with a delicious chicken-flavored recipe.  And, you thought that Paula Deen was only whipping up creative products and recipes for humans!

Let’s just say that your furry four-legged friends will be begging for these quality products from Paula Deen!

If you want to see the segment for yourself, all that you have to do is click here and then scroll down and select “Watch Video” under the image of the Silicone Dog Treat Pan and Dog Treat Mixes.

Chef Tony Meatloaf Pan Reviews are “The BOMB!”

Davison News, Product News

QVC Reviews- Miracle Meatloaf Pan

The Chef Tony Meatloaf Pan is back and we can’t help but check in on the tried-and-true Love Cooking Company product that we designed at our very own invention factory, Inventionland.

Culinary Professional Chef Tony Notaro has been touting this innovative product on QVC for months, and lately, it’s been stuffed with an overload of five-star customer reviews!

Maybe that’s why the product is ranked as a QVC “best seller?”

Miracle Meatloaf Pan- QVC Reviews

Here are a few of the latest five-star reviews for the Chef Tony Meatloaf Pan:

In a review titled “Works Like Magic,” Kris65 said,“What a creative little pan; we now get a variety of meatloaves with [an] easy-to-use pan with easy clean up.”

One anonymous poster said it all in her review, “Excellent Quality.”

“This is a quality bakeware pan. Not only does it perform well when baking a meatloaf, it’s also a terrific pan for my Irish brown bread recipe and pound cake, cornbread, etc. Loved the recipes for meatloaf (the feta cheese/spinach and mac/cheese are my favorites). Directions for stuffing are easy to follow. Way to go, Chef Tony!!”said the person behind the post.

Another satisfied customer, Venice, went so far as saying the Miracle Meatloaf Pan was her “Best Purchase Ever.”

“I used the pan for the first time, loved it; it works and the meatloaf came out clean,” said Venice.

In a post titled, “Fun Pan,” KelseyKirby said the pan helped to turn her tastes toward meatloaf.

“Normally, I’m not a meatloaf person, but my husband likes it, so thought I’d try this pan. Used a recipe from the book provided, and it was the BEST meatloaf I have ever had. I used my own recipe for the stuffing, and it kicked it up a notch. Highly recommend to turn something boring into something spectacular. Will be trying some of the other meatloaf recipes for turkey, etc…” said KelseyKirby.

And, finally, a post that truly says captures the Chef Tony Meatloaf Pan’s essence. Cat Leydecker titled her review, simply… “The BOMB!”

“The recipes from Chef Tony were worth the price. The feta/spinach… OMG!” said Cat Leydecker.
