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!

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.

QVC Miracle Meatloaf PanICYMI: On Monday, Chef Tony and the Miracle Meatloaf Pan that we designed at Davison appeared on QVC’s “In the Kitchen with David” for the second time already this year!

Well, you don’t get monthly QVC appearances if QVC shoppers don’t have some great “stuff” to say about your product! So, today, we’d like to take a look at just some of the reasons why the Davison-designed Miracle Meatloaf Pan carries such an awesome customer-review rating on QVC’s website.

“Tomby,” who also gave the pan a four-star review, says, “Try it….. You’ll be happy you did!”

“Wished I would have had this pan years ago…… I do not use the press as I like to put more in the meat loaf and roll like a jelly roll……
So easy to lift out and slice………… ”

And, on to a five-star rating from “Joycesp,” who titled her review, “LOVE IT.”

“I used this pan yesterday on meatloaf. Put cheese in the middle. Works great. I made beer bread with it today. Works really good. LOVE it. I will use it more than I think.”

All in all, the Miracle Meatloaf Pan has been reviewed 45 times on QVC and we know that Monday’s appearance sold over 8,500 more units, so we can’t wait to see even more great stuff that is sure to come in future reviews!

Chilly Mat Inventor Shares Story with Hometown Newspaper

Davison News, Product News

Chilly Mat- Page 6

When Diana Edington, the inventor of the Chilly Mat, noticed that her new puppy was having a hard time getting comfortable, she decided to take matters into her own hands.

That’s exactly what our client inventor told “The Banner,” a Carthage, Indiana, newspaper that recently published an article about their hometown-inventing hero.

Hugs Pet Products- Chilly Mat

“I had a puppy that was very tiny, and was looking for a way to make her feel not only comfortable, but secure,” she said. “At the time, she was in a crate. We put things in the kennels with them or their doghouses to help them stay comfortable through the winter, and you can do that with blankets. But, in the summer, blankets are too hot.”

Like many of our clients, Edington found a Better Way to do something… in her case, help her puppy stay cool and comfortable.

To help with her invention idea, Edington found Davison online; she contacted us and we continued to brainstorm on her idea with her.

“Once we had the general ideas in place, they took off with it from there… Davison is very good about taking the ideas that you throw at them and making it in a way that will benefit the company as well as you…” said Edington.

The Chilly Mat, Edington’s invention recently has been featured as a limited-time deal on coupaw.com and at a Bed Bath & Beyond store in Ohio. But, wait… there’s more!

Edington herself will be visiting Davison soon! Stay tuned to hear more about her visit!

Until then, here’s Diana Edington and the Chilly Mat’s story below:

Another Product Reaches the End Zone – Soda Straws Land on Walmart.com!

Davison News, Product News

Super Bowl Sunday is this weekend and you know what that means… whether you’re rooting for the Patriots or Seahawks (or neither team for that matter), you’re probably planning to attend a Super Bowl party somewhere.

Walmart.com- Soda StrawsWhat better Davison product to bring to any party than Jokari’s Soda Straws, which you now can easily purchase at Walmart.com for only $13.99!

The innovative product is the perfect way to keep your favorite soda or other carbonated beverage fresh while you’re watching closely to make sure that all game balls are property inflated or while you’re catching all of this year’s must-see commercials. With a flip-top cap, Soda Straws also will help to make sure that there are no spills or other party fouls.

Jokari Soda Straws

If you happen to be at a warm, outdoor Super Bowl party (we’re jealous!), Soda Straws will also protect your beverages from flies and other insects. Plus, you can use them over and over again!

If you’ve still not seen a product that we created at Davison on a store shelf, rush to Walmart.com, see Soda Straws and head to the end zone by picking up some for yourself! They’re sure to score a touchdown at any Super Bowl celebration!

And, if we can’t celebrate our favorite team winning the Lombardi trophy, at least we can celebrate adding another place where we can pick up the products created at Davison!

Blogger Proves “Mama Know’s Best” in Love Cooking Company Product Review

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!
