How Did You Come Up with the Idea for the Ergo Spout®?
One of the questions I get asked most often is how I came up with the idea for a spout and handle for mason jars. I firmly believe that it’s a natural part of the human condition to try and solve problems or to create tools that make life easier. It’s that old saying “Necessity is the mother of invention.”
In my case it all ties back to a problem that came about because of breakfast syrup.
When Syrup Becomes a Problem
When my oldest son was younger he loved pancakes with syrup. It might be more accurate to say that he loved syrup with pancakes. We went though A LOT of syrup at our house. Drowning your pancakes in syrup is only really a problem if the syrup is expensive. In my case, fortunately, it was not.
