Product Features & Benefits
Carefully Crafted – We took into consideration multiple developments including: *Standard cabinet height from the counter *Average counter size *Lid weight *Lid size *Lid designs *Product flexibility *Product durability *Product usability and *Style
While cooking a delicious spaghetti dish on a ceramic stove top, I took the top off the pot that had my thinly sliced garlic, peppers, and mushrooms waiting to be mixed with my yummy noodles and spilled water all over the stove. Frantically looking for a place to sit down the wet lid and stop this messiness, I eventually flipped the lid over and placed it on its handle, slightly burning my wrist while doing so. I said to myself, after all the years of pots and pans being invented no one has come up with a solution for where to place your tops when cooking. At this point, I knew I was not the only one experiencing this problem and decided to invent a solution for everyone. That is how the Top Prop was founded.
Where we are in the process!
After design, and the redesign of several prototypes, we've tweaked every last detail to arrive with the most perfect finalized prototype in which, you see today. We want to use this product so badly that we must restrain ourselves almost every day. We have confirmed our manufacturer, based in Iowa, and are proud to be utilizing a company in the USA.
We need to place a substantial minimum order for the first production run of the Top Prop. That's why we're offering the Top Prop to this awesome community before anyone else.
What our timeline looks like!
The Top Prop has been an idea we've been dying to bring to fruition since it was first conceived in 2012. The product you're seeing in this project is the result of innumerable hours of iterating and reiterating. We're perfectionists, and we wanted to make sure we got this one right. Below you'll see a brief outline of the journey we're on with the Top Prop. Attaining and/or surpassing our project goal will allow us the resources to build our injection molds and deliver the Top Prop to you. We are insanely excited and really look forward to putting this awesome product in your hands. You can rest assured that we're going to continue to work day and night until the very last Top Prop is shipped and delivered.

How we got here!
The idea seemed great, but the development of the product was in question. The first model was made with multiple wire hangers. We bent, twisted, and secured the stand that was to hold the lids. We hired an architect to draft the dimensions in a CAD program and worked out several kinks. For months we looked for a local prototype manufacturer, but had to travel to another state to have our 3D rendering printed. After paying thousands of dollars for many design changes and prototypes, we thought we had the perfect product; however, the unit seemed too large. We scaled down the product, adjusted the base plate design, and redesigned the rear hinge, meanwhile maintaining all the functionalities. Follow the images below to see the process.
