Using a pan and a strainer is messy and only results in more work. So why not both? The Handy Pan combines a non-stick skillet with a strainer on the side, so you can drain grease from your food without the hassle. Josh Conway and Adam Chaudry created their company to make cooking in the kitchen a little easier. What will the sharks think during the
Shark Tank Handy Pan Update
- Entrepreneurs: Josh Conway and Adam Chaudry
- Business: A pan with a built-in strainer
- Ask: $10,000 for 20% equity
- Result: $10,000 for 20% equity
- Shark: Lori Greiner
The Handy Pan makes it easy to make pasta, vegetables, and meat for taco night. Josh and Adam delivered a great pitch that showcased their product’s strengths, but the sharks quickly changed their tune when they revealed their sales numbers.
The Handy Pan only had about $7,900 in sales. They couldn’t get into retail, and they didn’t know how to market their product effectively. Kevin O’Leary didn’t think the product would sell, but they mentioned that they haven’t tried Amazon.
Robert Herjavec didn’t think the sales made sense. Since both Josh and Adam had day jobs, their backs weren’t up against the wall to make it work.
Lori Greiner, on the other hand, didn’t want to waste time disputing. Their ask was so low that she agreed to give them exactly what they asked for—$10,000 for 20% equity in the company. Has Lori worked her magic yet? We’ll find out in our Handy Pan update.
Since the show was filmed, there doesn’t seem to be much happening in the Handy Pan department. The website is still up and running, but our Handy Pan update didn’t show any new progress for the product. We’re sure it’ll get off the ground soon with Lori involved.
