Innovation Direct™ to Serve as Licensing Liaison for Patented Cooking Utensil Gripping Glove Invention

South Miami, FL, September 16, 2014 --( An innovative new product designed to address a common problem related to cooking, the Cooking Utensil Gripping Glove, has been developed by Nicole Smith of Danville, Virginia. The invention's unique design allows it to effectively address a potential safety issue that is inherent in the process of cooking with hot oil or water.

The Cooking Utensil Gripping Glove’ proprietary features enable it to provide thorough protection for its users from potential burns from grease splatters. The product saves its users from the pain and frustration of being scalded by hot water or oil. Additionally, the Cooking Utensil Gripping Glove is comfortable and unobtrusive to utilize when preparing a variety of foods. Furthermore, it will also be competitively priced and made from durable materials, adding to its appeal.

A virtual prototype of the Cooking Utensil Gripping Glove is available for review. The Cooking Utensil Gripping Glove is also the subject of Utility Patent # 8,281,416 B1 within the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Mrs. Smith now seeks a third party licensee to manufacture, market, and distribute the product for her under a royalty agreement. Potential licensees in the kitchen accessories industry are currently being targeted as candidates to eventually commercialize the Cooking Utensil Gripping Glove on a worldwide basis.

In May 2014, Mrs. Smith contracted Miami, Florida-based product management services leader Innovation Direct™ to represent the Cooking Utensil Gripping Glove to potential licensees for a 2 year period. Innovation Direct™ obtains the maximum amount of exposure for the products that it represents through its unique and patented licensing methodology and its participation in multiple and diverse industry-leading trade shows each year.
