Two Things We Learned from This QVC Segment

Davison News, Product News

Pinata Pan - QVC Best Seller

Just a few weeks ago, we wanted to throw a small fiesta when we saw another product that our friends at Inventionland designed, the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan, on QVC’s “Kitchen Unlimited with Carolyn.”

The pan, which also sells as the Mrs. Fields Bake N Stuff Cupcake Pan, debuted as the first item on the show and it is now listed as one of QVC’s Best Sellers!

Of course, it was exciting to see this product live on QVC, but nothing takes the candy-stuffed cupcake like hearing great feedback from our current and potential clients after it has stuffed them with inspiration!

After the segment had aired as the very first product on “In the Kitchen with Carolyn,” some of our clients reached out to us to keep their invention ideas moving forward, while others realized a newfound belief in their own new product ideas. Not to mention, some of our clients even purchased the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan from QVC to give this innovative product a try!

Here are two things that we’ve learned from our most recent air-time on QVC:

Keep it going

After seeing this product on QVC, several of our clients were inspired to get their ideas going again. Sometimes, all that it takes is to see another situation that is reminiscent of yours yield positive results to restore your innovative spirit to keep chasing your invention dreams.

Believe in your idea

It’s no secret that sometimes it can be hard to keep your spirits alive if you don’t whole-heartedly believe in your idea. After seeing this particular QVC segment, and having the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan air as the very first product on the show, clients have said that they feel more strongly and confidently about the fact that they too could one day take a bite of their own success.

Feeling inspired? Submit your invention idea, today!

QVC - Pinata Pan

In perfect “Throwback Thursday” fashion, we’d like to throw it back to yesterday afternoon, when the Mrs. Fields Bake N Stuff Cupcake Pan was featured on QVC!

You’ve previously been introduced to the Mrs. Fields Bake N Stuff Cupcake Pan, a product that our friends over at Inventionland designed for the Love Cooking Company.

Well yesterday, this innovative baking product premiered on QVC and was repackaged as the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan.

Let’s just say, it made quite the first impression!

In fact, the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan was the very first product that was showcased on the “Kitchen Unlimited with Carolyn” show.

At the top of the show, host Carolyn Gracie and QVC kitchen product specialist Marie Louise Ludwig served up “a new twist on a cupcake pan.”

Of course, the “new twist” that they were talking about is the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan!

With various kinds of candy and icing inside, the baking-duo perfectly paired the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan as a product that’s perfect for both men and women in the kitchen who are trying to impress their kids or grandkids or to even cater to various tastes at school functions.

Ludwig even noted that the pan would be perfect for the popular gender-reveal baby showers!

“It takes basic cupcakes and turns them into something phenomenal,” said Ludwig, adding that the pan was also incredibly easy to use. “Basically, the pan does all the work for you,” said Ludwig.

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, 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!

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.

“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.”

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!

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!
