TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Future Products of America (FPOA), the brand of the American inventor, has just welcomed the MycroMat to its family of products. Created by American inventor, Aaron Hechtman, the MycroMat is an innovative all-in-one kitchen gadget that functions as two pot holders and one trivet for handling hot dishes.
"The MycroMat all started with a dream," says, inventor Aaron Hechtman. "One day back in 2007, I burnt myself on something I was removing from the microwave. Later that night before falling fast asleep, I thought, how could I take a hot bowl from the microwave to the table without 3rd degree burns? Once I was asleep, I had an incredible dream where I was buying the MycroMat and using it! I was so excited after I woke up I instantly began searching everywhere for a product similar to the one in my dream."
After realizing nothing like this existed, Aaron immediately started designing a prototype and when he'd perfected his design, began manufacturing. With tens of thousands of dollars in inventory, Aaron travelled the country, meeting with industry experts to develop a business strategy that would put a MycroMat in front of every microwave in the world. In 2015, Aaron was still looking for the opportunity of a lifetime, for both the MycroMat and himself professionally. When he heard about Future Products of America, and the opportunity to license his product, he knew he'd stumbled upon something great.
By licensing a product to FPOA, an inventor assumes no financial risk, which is a leading factor in why so many inventions never make it to market. "Most often, by the time an inventor gets a patent and designs a prototype, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars or more, he or she is already out of money and cannot move forward with the idea," Rick Valderrama, CEO of FPOA, states. To prevent said stagnancy FPOA will take on the responsibility of design and development, manufacturing, packaging, and distribution of the product and all costs associated with this process. In return, the inventor will earn a percentage of all sales and will have realized the dream of getting a product onto store shelves and into the American home, which is really what FPOA is all about.
But Aaron's relationship with FPOA does not stop with the MycroMat. His charismatic demeanor and energetic spirit were impossible to ignore, resulting in FPOA eagerly welcoming him to the FPOA family as the pitchman of FPOA products.
About Inventor/Pitchman Aaron Hechtman
Aaron Hechtman was born on December 12, 1983. Growing up in the Chicago suburb of Buffalo Grove, IL. Aaron had two major influences in his early life. One was his grandfather and actor, Robert Hackman, who co-starred in shows like Love Boat, Sanford & Son, Charlies Angels, CHiPs and the movies Hooper, Falling in Love Again and The Longest Mile. His second idol was pitchman Billy Mays, who Aaron would often emulate, pretending to pitch and sell products that were on TV. Born a natural salesman, Aaron dreamt of one day following in Billy Mays footsteps.
After high school, Aaron attended and graduated from the Illinois Center for Broadcasting and began working as a video editor for the United Center's Chicago Bulls & Blackhawks. After gaining invaluable experience and learning the in's and out's of production and business marketing, Aaron then started his own video production company, Crystal Ball Creations.
In 2007, after burning his hands taking a boiling bowl of soup out of the microwave, Aaron dreamt up the next big thing—the MycroMat, which is now available for purchase through Future Products of America.
