Below is our recent interview with Trevor Hewes, the Founder of TP2 Products:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to TP2 Products?
A: TP2 Products, LLC (TP2) was formed in February, 2019 with the idea of creating a kitchen gadget that made the boiling of eggs ‘safer, faster and better’ than current methods. After several concepts, prototypes, focus groups and marketing research, a final design was approved which met my requirements. Thus, ‘TheEggDropper’ was born.
‘TheEggDropper’ can hold up to six eggs at a time for unsurpassed cooking consistency. The product is made kitchen grade BPA free silicone material which is heat resistant. It is easily stored and cleaned and comes with a safety hook for quick and precise handling.
TP2’s initial start-up was boot strapped by my wife Kristen and I until we were diligent in securing a few key silent and strategic investors. From there, we were on target for the next stages of engineering, product development, website construction and market plan execution.
Today, TP2 Product’s, ‘TheEggDropper’, is consumer ready at www.theeggdropper.com.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: TP2 Products ran a successful Kickstarter campaign in the first quarter of 2022. As a result of the campaign, we have generated commercial interest and are currently in negotiations with a major retail grocer to provide “TheEggDropper” in their stores starting January, 2023. On top of that, other wholesale inquiries have been queued up and additional announcements are imminent.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Consumers can find ‘TheEggDropper’ on our website, www.theeggdropper.com, selling for $19.99. You can order up to three units and anything greater than three is subject to bulk order. ‘TheEggDropper’ is available in a vibrant kitchen blue color.
We will be marketing our product on most of the social media outlets; Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in addition to garnering key influencers along the way. See chef testimonial: https://vimeo.com/670744263

It is a professional team gathered from various parts of the country, from all walks of life yet with very common interests in and out of the workplace, working to a common goal. Fun Stuff!
