Davison Client Invention Reshapes the Burger

Chef Tony Burger Dog Pan Inventor

When clients come to Davison, they come for inventing expertise and guidance backed by over 25 years of experience in helping everyday idea people hopefully bring their inventions to life.

As is with many new inventions, ideas are usually created as a solution to a common problem.

This continued to be true for one Tampa Bay, Florida mother who invented a unique baking pan that brings two all-American classics – hamburgers and hot dogs – together in a way that not only culminated into a new invention, but brings innovation to cooking and recipes.

This isn’t just any inventor story. This is the story of a Davison inventor who found a better way to combine two cookout favorites into one, in a healthier way.

For Davison client, Ingrid, the ingredients in hot dogs were particularly troubling. Though often a crowd favorite, Ingrid wanted to find a better way to make a healthier hot dog alternative.

After having been to many summer cookouts, Ingrid came up with an idea for a pan that would shape ground meat into the form of a hot dog. The pan would drain the grease during the cooking process and the final product would be a healthier alternative to a hot dog that would still preserve the convenient, easy-to-eat shape.

After being licensed to Love Cooking Company under their Chef Tony Notaro line of healthy cooking bakeware, Ingrid got to see and hold her final product in its packaging, with her idea turned invention all the more real.

If this isn’t exciting enough, Ingrid and her story were featured in a recent Tampa Bay Times’ article, which outlines the invention’s pending debut on QVC’s In the Kitchen with David and the hopes that Ingrid has for not only this invention, but also the “book full of inventions” that she’s been saving up for, in order to pursue.

Ingrid’s invention is reshaping the way that we make burgers. Now, the question remains, how can your invention potentially reshape and offer a better way to do something?

Mega Bacon Pan QVC - Davison Design and Development

In the invention industry, things change; they evolve.

This sentiment holds especially true for the Mega Bacon Pan, which evolved from our client Jean’s Meatball Baker.

Last month, the Mega Bacon Pan was featured on QVC’s “In the Kitchen with David.”

QVC host David Venable was intrigued and excited about the Davison-designed product! During the segment, Chef Tony showcased the possibilities with this innovative kitchen product, which included perfectly-cooked bacon, jerkies and even healthy chicken breasts!

The two-part pan with baking sheet and wire rack holds 18 slices of bacon and elevates each slice out of its own grease on a diagonal, so that the fats and oils can drain away for a crisp, flavorful piece of bacon!

“We say goodbye grease, hello flavor!” said Chef Tony, as he was showcasing the product to viewers across the country.

During the segment, both Chef Tony and David Venable showcased the perfectly-cooked bacon, which the pan allows to cook on its side.

While this sizzling news was exciting, this month, we want to use this QVC appearance as a lesson in confidence for those idea people who are working towards their invention dreams.

Chasing after your dreams requires discipline, knowledge and the courage to take the necessary steps in order to get you closer to your goals.

Whether you have an idea for a kitchen product or an idea for another category, think of how Jean’s belief in her idea brought her product to success and even evolved into other successful products!

We encourage you to use Jean as a source of inspiration and motivation along your journey as she is a great example of what can happen when you believe in your idea and work hard to hopefully see your product in the spotlight, too.

Are you ready to move forward with your idea? Submit today!

Client Invention Shows QVC Viewers a Better Way to Make Brownies

Licensing, Product News

PushPerfect 8 Brownie Pan - QVC

In case you missed it last Wednesday, Davison client Bobby’s PushPan Brownie Pan was featured on the popular QVC segment, “Kitchen Unlimited with Carolyn.”

Bobby came to Davison with his idea for better brownies. His innovative pan would later be licensed to our friends at Love Cooking Company, who were also excited for this brownie innovation to debut on leading video and ecommerce retailer QVC!

It’s always exciting to see one of our products in the limelight!

While on the show, the product went by the name “PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan with Slicing Grid” and was shown by longtime QVC guest host Marie Louise Ludwig, alongside host Carolyn Gracie.

This wasn’t Ludwig’s first time showing off a Davison-licensed product. In fact, she showcased the Pinata Nonstick Cupcake Pan last September.

PushPerfect 8 Brownie Pan - QVC


In last week’s segment, QVC host Carolyn Gracie and Ludwig both demonstrated the innovative PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan and how it can be used to make just about anything.

For example, brownies with ganache on top or crispy cereal treats to satisfy any sweet tooth and some other savory options like pull-apart pepperoni cheese bread and cornbread are just a few delicious choices.

It didn’t take long for Gracie to proclaim that the PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan had become one of her favorite baking pans!

The pan comes with its own slicing grid that can be used during or after baking.

“You get perfect squares every time!” said Ludwig, noting how you can leave the grid in during baking to make sure each square has a chewy edge.

“And, nobody fights because they got the bigger or the smaller pieces,” said Ludwig.

Now, thanks to the PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan, baking just got a little bit easier!

You can get your very own PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan on for $27.50 right now. For a bite of inspiration, pick up yours to try a Davison client’s inventive idea today!

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.”

QVC - Pinata 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.
