Novolex Awarded Patent for Cutlerease Utensil Dispenser

Waddington North America™ (WNA), a Novolex® brand, announced today that it has been awarded a new patent for Cutlerease®, an innovative dispenser that offers customers one disposable utensil at a time.

Thanks to the patent, Novolex can now offer customers the opportunity to lease or buy Cutlerease dispensers — making it even easier for foodservice establishments to enjoy its many benefits. The unique system cuts waste, reduces the spread of germs, saves space and provides guests with a more convenient way to get utensils.

Customers simply withdraw the utensil from the dispenser by pulling on the handle of the spoon, fork or knife that they want. After the utensil is removed, another pops out, ready for the next guest.

The new patent covers the Cutlerease refill system that maximizes efficiency and hygiene in loading replacement utensils. It features refill packs that make restocking easy and do not require employees to touch the actual cutlery. The dispenser also works with compostable cutlery from Eco-Products®, a Novolex brand.

“We’re excited about receiving a patent that recognizes the unique attributes of our breakthrough Cutlerease dispenser,” said Bill Gallop, Senior Product Design Manager at WNA. “Cutlerease is easy to load and simple to use. Customers take exactly what they need, only touching the utensils they will use, creating less waste and more peace of mind.”

The patented system features refills that consist of a stack of utensils with an adhesive strip applied to one side. That makes it easy to refill quickly in two simple steps: Load the stack in the tower and then peel the adhesive down. Cutlerease refills are compactly bundled to reduce the case size, which in turn takes up less space in storage.

The dispenser is a breakthrough in efficiency, convenience and sanitation compared to current refill technologies on the market, which commonly use boxy cartridges or complex wraparound bands that can cause system jams. Cutlerease also can dispense compostable knives, forks and spoons from Eco-Products.
