Specific examples may include grilling tools or gadgets, presses, thermometers, serving utensils, carving aids, serving implements, storage containers, condiment dispensers and more. Products may be made of stainless steel, plastic, silicone, wood, or any other functional material for outdoor use. Eco-friendly materials are also encouraged.
With an in-house design and development team, Lifetime Brands holds a proven track record of innovation and new product introductions. In 2008, they launched over 4,000 new products, making them a natural fit with our tenacious Edison Nation members and their vast potential for major product ideas.

Their leading barbeque and outdoor entertaining products are nationally branded as KitchenAid®, Farberware®, Hoffritz® and Sabatier® among others.
