West Sussex- An innovative Cucumber Cap wins a Bronze Medal at the British Invention Show 2005.

Hampshire housewife and mother Carolyn McMaster has invented a new and innovative product for protecting the exposed end of a cucumber. The product is conveniently named ‘Q-Top”.

Mrs. McMaster stated “I just got tired of having to fiddle with cling film and foil, only to find that it wouldn’t last, it would fall off, and have to be replaced-it was all just too fiddly and it was wasteful.’

When preparing a cucumber for a salad or other dish the unused portion of the cucumber is normally wrapped in cling film or foil to preserve the unused portion. This is wasteful and not very environmentally friendly.

Using Q-Top removes the need to use additional man-made or processed materials (aluminium, plastic, paper, corrugated linerboard, inks, solvents, barrier coatings, etc.) The improved environmental effects are considerable.

The device creates a seal and slows the oxidisation process.

Q-Top is a novel kitchen product aimed at the home products market. It reduces waste and preserves food. It’s functional, attractive, and Mrs. McMaster intends to license the production and sales of her new product.

Q-Top will be available online and in grocery retailers in the next few months. The retail price is expected to be 1.50 GBP.

Q-Top is Patent Pending in the United Kingdom. Trademark and foreign Patent applications are being processed.
