From revolutionary baking pans to smarter pizza boxes, Shark Tank has seen many pitches for useful kitchen products. We compiled a group of them, complete with our interviews with the entrepreneurs.
Matthew Griffin and his chef wife, Emily, created a brownie pan that started their company Baker's Edge. Heavy interviewed Matthew before and after his Tank experience. He said, "Business hasn't changed in a Cinderella sort of fashion - but sales have been great. We have enjoyed a 40-50% growth in sales - which is a huge jump for an established brand.
For the 6th year in a row, their brownie pan is the best selling product in it's Amazon.com category and has been endorsed by America's Test Kitchen. Their website explains what sets their product apart, "It's the only gourmet brownie pan that adds two chewy edges to every serving. The pan’s patented sidewalls also improve baking performance by circulating heat evenly to the pan’s middle, where food typically takes longer to bake." The Griffins did not get a deal on the show.
