Invention of the Week #11: Mess-esity is the Mother of Invention

Latest posts by Rich Sloan (see all)

This week’s featured invention is “Chef-Aid” from independent inventor Annette Johnson, who was tired of messy spoons and spatulas dripping on her rangetop. Goodbye mess, hello to the now patented Chef-Aid.

Annette works with our invention commercialization partner, Invention Home, to help her find marketing/licensing opportunities for her invention.

Chef-Aid, with its unique, patented drain system, is an upright, space saving, multiple utensil holder used during the preparation and cooking process.  The product will safely hold up to five utensils of varying sizes when they’re placed upright against the supporting, horizontal C-shape back. Chef-Aid’s most outstanding feature is the patented drain system in the base, which was designed to prevent the commingling of foods from all utensils. Chef-Aid is a polypropylene product; it’s dishwasher safe and heat resistant. Easily disassembled into three sections.  Chef-Aid’s exclusive design provides the cook with extra space, time and less cleanup than compared to the proverbial spoon rest/soup dish/countertop/sink of the past.

So, what do you think of “Chef-Aid”? I love cooking and I never have a good spot for my spatulas… Love this one.
