Here's one of the Shark Tank products that is really useful and not expensive. Safe Grabs have many uses, but I find the best use is for getting hot plates and bowls our of the microwave. Using a towel just doesn't work well! There are some knock-offs on the market, but be careful. The Safe Grabs product is patent pending and has distinctive grooves that some of the other silicon mats do not have.
I find the Safe Grab mat to be very useful in the microwave. It's one of the Shark Tank products that is actually affordable and not on back order!
Cyndi Lee, the inventor of Safe Grabs introduced the product on Shark Tank in Season 8, Episode 5. She had tried 3 times previously to get on the show and her persistence paid off. She secured a deal with Lori Grenier for $75,000 in exchange for 25% of her company. Many deals made on the show fall through during the due diligence process, but this one was finalized. Less than 15 hours after the Shark Tank episode aired, Lori Greiner went on QVC and sold out her entire supply of Safe Grabs They are back in stock now and widely available in retail online and in stores. The product is a huge success and variations of size, color and packaging of the mats are on the market.
