After sponsoring two successful Live Product Searches, Lifetime Brands is partnering with Edison Nation again to discover performance-enhancing cookware and bakeware products and accessories that provide faster, healthier and more efficient solutions for everyday, at-home cooks.
Top cookware and bakeware submissions may include product advancements that make use of innovative designs or materials to enhance product performance, shorten cooking time, improve a meal’s health factor and make fixing dinner more enjoyable.
For this search, consider the latest dining, cooking and kitchen product trends and how it can apply to your cookware and bakeware submissions:
• Products that promote personal health through innovative cooking methods
• Products that improve performance or energy-savings in the kitchen
• Products that make the everyday home cook’s life easier in the kitchen
• Products that spread heat evenly or decrease cooking time
• One-pot meal solutions – all-in-one, multifunctional products that lighten the dish load
• Pizza baking devices that help make pre-made or frozen pizzas better (such as racks, baking stones, etc.)
Reward: Advance & Royalties
Licensed ideas will receive a $2,500 minimum advance on 20 years percentage of sales or buyout. We split the licensing royalties 50/50 with you on the products that we select. Royalties vary based upon the product but we always earn industry-leading rates.
For this search, please submit your unique advancements and developments to cookware and bakeware products that make cooking faster, easier or more efficient. Your submission should enhance the overall cooking or baking experience by offering innovations that improve performance. Your submission must be unique, patentable and potentially highly profitable. You get extra consideration if you produce a working prototype and submit video of yourself demonstrating the benefits and execution of your submission.
Each idea costs just $25 ($20 for gold members) to submit and, as long as you maintain gold membership, your idea may be submitted to as many searches as you would like at no additional cost. Click here for more details on Live Product Search
