Some people just have to have every last drop out of a bottle, while others simply don't realize how much money they're throwing away. Inventor, Neil Ziegmann, is frugal. He solved the problem of 'last drops' and 'wasted money' with Funnel-It. Developed several years ago, it's a bottle drainer that allows users to invert one bottle over another, and leave them unattended while gravity does its job. Sticky, sluggish condiments like ketchup and honey, expensive health and beauty products, and workshop products like synthetic oil supplements and glue, justify saving every last drop. Funnel-It makes the process easy and eliminates the mess. Users join the old and new bottles with Funnel-It, and walk away. The impulse price point (one for $4, three for $10) appeals to anyone who buys groceries and eats at home.
Ziegmann has marketed the product with some success for several years, but his forte is creating ideas, not putting them on the market. Three months ago, he asked long-time friend, Mike Jaksha, to take over manufacturing and marketing distribution for Funnel-It. Jaksha has launched a new wholesale program, a new website, and a new approach to the market. Funnel-It offers both retailers and consumers a product which is durable (dishwasher safe/unlimited shelf life) and compact and light (1/2 oz.). Funnel-It comes with a money back guarantee for both retailers and consumers. New account orders are incentive priced at $1 ea., for 50 or 500 units.
