If you like cooking, then chances are that innovative cooking gadgets attract you. After all, anything that makes the process easier, short, convenient, and more enjoyable is always welcome in the kitchen. And it is a cherry on top when the said gadget looks good in your kitchen setting and adds to the aesthetic.
If you have ever fried something in a hot pot of oil, you know the oil bubbles and splatters everywhere. So much so that even if you fry an egg with a little bit of oil, it can get in every crevice of your cookware and stove. Hence, when Yair Reiner set out on his journey with cooking, he knew he had to do something about the whole splatter situation.
Like most of us regular folks in the kitchen, Reiner loved cooking but absolutely hated the chore of cleaning up after. However, one day, Reiner was frying a duck breast that happened to annoy him a bit more than usual. That’s when he got the idea of a guard for his frying pan. Something that acts as a barrier for all the oil splatter.
So he got himself silicone paste and started working on a guard prototype model. Soon enough, he had what he now sells as FryWall. It looks like a pet cone you get for your pet dog or cat after surgery or a vet appointment. However, it is actually a literal “wall for your frying pan” that guards the edge of your cooking pot and saves your kitchen from suffering the splatter.
Reiner had recently lost his job when he was working on the prototype. So this was the best way for him to pursue his passion for cooking. So it was a dream come true for him when his idea and execution were successful within three months. Finally, Reiner had a working model, and it didn’t take long to get popular in the market.
The FryWall was a huge success, with the customers and retailers trying to get on board. This created the perfect opportunity for Reiner to fully invest in the business aspect of things and take his career forward. However, simultaneously, he knew that pursuing business full-time was easier said than done.
So with a lot of backing, Reiner made it to NBC’s Next Big Thing and ended up winning. This created the best-case marketing scenario for FryWall as the product was featured across the country via television and big names in the publishing industry. Soon enough, it was obvious that Shark Tank was the next step for Reiner.
Hence, Reiner made his way to the sets of Shark Tank. He pitched for $100,000 in exchange for 10% equity in his business. He went on to demonstrate how to use the FryWall, quickly prompting the judges to feel like they were sitting on the sets of Master Chef than Shark Tank because of all the cooking. A quick laugh later, judges were interested in the product.
After some discussions around the sales and profits generated, Kevin was the first one to show approval and counter for 15%. Daymond took it up with Kevin and placed the same deal forward. However, Robert and Mark went out, while Lori dominated the whole setting with the initial deal and her gold tooth, to which Reiner couldn’t contain his excitement anymore.
It was a deal!
FryWall is still going strong today and doing exceedingly well since Lori Greiner’s funding and frontline management. You can find the range of products on Amazon as well as their official website FryWall.com. Having expanded in product variety, including colors, materials, and sizes, one should definitely get their hands on FryWall for the authentic experience.
