1/20/15 Featured Inventor: Buyar Hayrula- Bake Any Shape

Bake Any Shape - How It Works

Bake Any Shape is a revolutionary product that will change the way you look at bakeware forever. It was designed to break the mold on conventional thinking and give you the consumer the power to crate virtually any shape imaginable. 

Bake Any Shape stainless steel bakeware is a new baking product scheduled to be released in Spring 2015.  It's made of 316 Stainless Steel, 2 1/2" in height and comes in four lengths (2", 4", 6" & 8"). The product line includes 25 shapes, a custom made hinge clip and pre cut parchment paper (1" x 2 1/2").

To bake with Bake Any Shape simply create your desired shape on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Connect your shapes with the Bake Any Shape clip and pre cut parchment paper on the outside of the shape. Coat the inside walls with baking spray, fill your shape half way and bake. After you're finished baking disconnect your shapes when they are safe to touch and decorate your shape the way you like. It's that easy!

Meet Buyar Hayrula (in his own words)

My name is Buyar Hayrula.  I am 39 years old. I am married to my wife Emina for 12 years. We have two boys, ages 5 & 10. I have been employed as a US Customs and Border Protection Officer in Newark, NJ for the past 7 years.

I have been wanting to own my own company for the past few years.  I was looking for a business I could run part time while working my full time job.  My wife is a stay at home mom. I came up with the idea for Bake Any Shape in March 2014.  About six months before I came up with the idea I started watching Shark Tank. I found the show to be entertaining and educational. Several months after watching it I read a book called The Four Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferris. It was essentially a blue print on creating a product and overseeing the operation with very little time taken out of your day which is what I was looking for.  I began to watch Shark Tank religiously and said it would be pretty cool if I could come up with an idea that could land me a deal on that show.  I thought of two ideas prior to Bake Any Shape.  I spent several weeks on both without spending any money.  I did my research and decided not to pursue them.  Shortly after I decided against the second idea I was sitting in my living room with my wife, watching Shark Tank and I said to her "I gotta find a way to get on this show." I looked at my living room table, saw a piece of cake on it and said "why can't I have any shape cake?" I went on the internet and saw there was silicone products that bend but, nothing made of stainless steel. I started drawing and did some sketches on how I could get it done. I cut out some cardboard to match my drawings then cut some tin cans to see how it could work.  I had a buddy who owns a machine shop create 6 shapes, tested them out and they worked.  The rest as they say is a lot of learning lessons and history. I went from not knowing anything about social media, patents or manufacturing to having several social media accounts, a YouTube channel, and a product that will be showcased at the International Housewares Show in 2015.  To say I've learned a lot and come far since last March would be an understatement.  It's been a very interesting/frustrating/rewarding experience and it proves how far you can go if you do your research and give yourself a goal.
