Robbie Manufacturing's Hot N Handy Pouch was one of nine products recently selected as winners of Good Housekeeping magazine's 10th annual Good Buy Awards. The Good Housekeeping Institute selects products based on their ingenuity, value, and exceptional performance.
The pouch is provided by participating grocers as a secure and convenient in-store packaging solution for rotisserie chicken. The Good Housekeeping Institute evaluated the Hot N Handy Pouch in a series of tests for leakage, heating, microwaveability, and toughness.
In bestowing its prestigious award on a packaging product for the first time, the magazine cited the pouch's leak-resistant, freezer-friendly, microwave-safe features, as well as its built-in handles, after an introductory reference to how supermarket rotisserie chickens can be a mess in transit because of leaky packaging.
It didn't go unnoticed by Irv Robinson, c.e.o. of Lenexa, Kan.-based Robbie, that the Hot N Handy Pouch is the only Good Buy Award winner that consumers can’t actually buy. "It's a product that grocers buy," he said. "But what Hot N Handy does do that makes it like all these great products is that it solves everyday problems. Consumers told us they needed an easier and safer way to carry rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to their car to their kitchen."
