Amanda Statzer is doing her part to remedy a problem many people have. She has been part of the campaign to launch the product “The Handy Helper”, a cooking tool to help stabilize pots and pans that are used while on the stove.
A 1999 Salem High School graduate, Statzer went on to Roanoke College where she earned a degree in Biology. Having two small children of her own, the Handy Helper is something she believes in simply because she has had to use it herself.
“This product will not only end the frustration of trying to cook with one hand, but greatly diminish the risk of injury,” said Statzer. “There
are many other people who find themselves in these difficult and hazardous situations.”
It certainly is not just mothers that can benefit from such an innovation. Those who have physical upper limb limitations will have a device to aid them in cooking, and the clamps will prevent children from grabbing one of the pots or pans off the stove. Additionally, people limited to using one hand for cooking while multi-tasking will have an easy and secure means of holding their cookware in place.
Idea Design Studio has created the professional encrypted website with the funding provided. Statzer does plan additional branding and marketing for The Handy Helper, which she hopes will comes from additional money earned from her campaign. She says Idea Design is creating an encrypted website, which will be presented to investors for larger retail stores specializing in products for homes, where she hopes she can eventually land the innovation.
Funding for the project is also underway at rockethub.com, where visitors can watch a short video of how the product works, read a description, and even donate to the cause. Statzer also invites everyone to check out the Facebook page for The Handy Helper, and click like to find out more information about the product on the open market.
