About

"The Safe-Pron reduces the likelihood of burning your hands when cooking in the kitchen"

I came up with the Safe-Pron design when I was working in hospitality.I found that I was burning my hands on hot dishes.Not only was I burning myself but so were waiters/waitresses/cooks and chefs.My product then grew into a product that could be worn by men/women in domestic homes/restaurant workers/hotel and gift-ware. 

        Safe-pron works as protect ware for chefs/restaurant staff

I also found that professional chefs/cooks were using old,worn tea towels when lifting hot plates, that did not match their professional image.The main reason being that they had misplaced their oven mitt or somebody else was using them.Not only is the Safe-Pron design practical but it is also stylish.

But who else could my product benefit?

With some guidance from my friend Nicola Warrick, I then thought bigger than my immediate problem. I looked at the cooking hazards for visually impaired people when cooking.

The Safe-Pron is great,it is easy to use, the oven mitts do not get misplaced and are always available to protect your hands. 

285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 have low vision.

I came up with many designs, testing each as I went.Finally the Safe-Pron was created. I had my oven mitts tested for heat resistance.The Safe-Pron will protect your hands from up to 350 centigrade or 640 Fahrenheit.I have also had the product design registered (Application Number 5000601)

No more burns when taking food out of hot ovens or using hot pans.The adjustable neck tie combined with the elastic extension allows for the Safe-Pron to fit many sizes.The large oven mitts fit all sizes as the design allows the mitts to pull back over the hand due to the elastic tie connection.

 The oven mitts design have button holes so that the mitts can be disconnected when being washed or when they are needed separately.The design uses large/deep pockets that allow the oven mitts to fit comfortably in the pockets when not in use.

Detachable mitts design

 The design is very simple but effective in achieving results. Reducing the likelihood of burns in the kitchen.

 My product is new to the market/no prior art. The product was designed in the UK by myself.I had a test batch of 50 aprons created in Stockport, United Kingdom by Matrix design.

 I did not run with the idea until November 2015 when I was invited to sell my products at Manchester train station in conjunction with Mid Cheshire Community Rail Partnership Officer . 

The feedback was fantastic and I sold nearly all of the garments, also receiving a further order from chateau du ludaix in France. 

The sales of my Safe-Pron gave me confidence, after all people liked it and most importantly paid for it with their hard earned money. 

I then  approached Nisbets one of the largest catering retailers in the UK.They have taken the Safe-Pron for testing.I am also exchanging emails with the buying team member at Asda.

I will be introducing more colours and designs. I will also be introducing an eco-friendly design made from 100% organic cotton.

     A great gift idea for the person that prepares the barbecue.......well tries to

The garments are made out of cotton and are machine washable

Why support the project?

The money will pay for our first big order of  Safe-Pron garments and would kick-start my business.I know that the Safe-Pron will sell. I just need the support to produce my first order.

Each Safe-Pron will be gift wrapped with love 

Thank you for your support
