Clever Design Makes Transport-To-Table Easy

Los Angeles, CA – Adding to the company’s booming line of Casserole and Pie Carriers that foodies and celebrities love, vonny, the original designer of fashion-for-your food carriers, tote and accessories that mixes Southern hospitality with LA style, is introducing a stylish Deviled Egg Carrier. Combining style and function when it comes to carrying favorite dishes to Easter family parties, summer get-togethers, beach BBQs, and more, the Deviled Egg Carrier will retail for $64 (includes removable Melamine tray) and is available on

With a laminated, printed canvas exterior in colorful, graphic prints, and a zipper in a contrasting color, the Deviled Egg Carrier is topped with a webbing handle for comfortable carrying.  The insulated interior with a non-slip surface features an exclusive, removable oval 15" x 11.5" Deviled Egg Tray, designed to hold 22 deviled eggs. The Melamine tray, which is included with the carrier, comes in crisp white, making traveling to table not only stress-free but showcases the deviled eggs as the main show. The tray is also dishwasher safe.

The new Deviled Egg Carriers come in two colorful prints: Sweet Tea (a NEW print; a sweet, vintage take on red cherries with a light blue background and red accents) and Mardi Gras (bright, multi-colored confetti dots). For those who want a complete coordinating set of carriers, the Mardi Gras and Sweet Tea prints are also available in the Pie and Casserole Carrier.

“A once traditional potluck fixture, deviled eggs are making a hip resurgence with gourmet versions popping up on TV food shows and in magazines nationwide, adding new twists and a modern take on the classic dish by embellishing with bacon, garlic, cheese and more,” says Vonny Faucheux.  Husband and business partner, Jerry Faucheux adds “The vonny Deviled Egg Carrier will make transporting and serving this delicious dish easier than ever.”

If your husband is like mine, football season couldn't come soon enough. Football, to him, is everything that comes with the game... the players, the coaches, the success stories, the moments of defeat, the tailgating, the food, the competition, the friendship... all of it! So it's no wonder that he couldn't wait to see the Tailgater Monthly issue with the Top 20 College Tailgates and check out the Gadgets and Gear section, that included Blacktop 360's Party Hub Grill Fryer.

Tailgating has become a sport in its own right pitting diehard cooks, dedicated sports fans, and party goers in competition to create a complete tailgating experience for friends and family. Now, with the Blacktop 360 Party Hub Grill Fryer, rather than standing in the corner tending the grill alone, the cook can be part of the action and party-goers can share in the preparation.

Serious BBQ-ers will love the 30,000 BTU’s of cooking power, infrared burner capable of 450-650+ degree temperatures, independent fry, grill and griddle controls, and generous 16oz. capacity deep fryer.

With matchless lighting, the Party Hub Grill Fryer uses a standard one-pound propane canister or can accommodate an optional hose for 20 lb tank use. It also features a removable splash ring to prevent oil splatter or that can double as a fondue ring, a high-temperature silicone steamer with a lid that fits over the deep fryer, and an oil/meat thermometer. Easy to clean with its porcelain coated cooking surface, the cooking surface tips to empty the fryer into an oil reserve mounted at the end of the channel.

The Party Hub Grill Fryer is also easy to transport in a carry bag, weighing less than 40 lbs.
