Splatter Screen

Thaddeus Alemau from New York had the ingenious idea of creating an Odor-Absorbing Splatter Screen by sandwiching a carbon filter between the existing mesh screens. Lifetime Brands designed this washable splatter screen that captures odors from foods such as fish and bacon while still allowing steam to escape for crisp results. Several variations of this product were developed across

Misto

Tom Risch from Connecticut, inventor of Misto, The Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer, already had an established product and partnered with Lifetime Brands to take advantage of our advanced design team and established sales network. With new features, alternative materials and trend-right pattern designs, over one million units have been sold to  date. Plus, new variations of the original concept are introduced each year.
