Paris, France/Fairfield, NJ—May 12, 2005— Mastrad SA, the well-known French kitchenware development company and ORKAŽ Silicone Oven Mitt patent holder, and iSi North America, the exclusive US distributor of the ORKAŽ Silicone Oven Mitt and other Mastrad products, are proud to announce that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has advised the patent holder that they have approved additional claims that extend the rights previously granted for the ORKAŽ Silicone Oven Mitt U.S. patent for utility: No. 6,532,597 B2 which was granted March 18, 2003.

Mastrad has been granted patents for ORKAŽ Silicone Oven Mitt for both design and utility by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The utility patent covers the benefits provided by the protective nature of the mitt and the silicone material, such as its non-porous nature, heat-resistance and stain-resistance. This action by the Patent and Trademark office dramatically strengthens and broadens the intellectual property rights for the ORKA Silicone Oven Mitt in several significant ways, including structural variations. Mastrad is committed to defending its property rights to the fullest extent and will work vigorously to protect these rights.

iSiŽ, the world’s largest manufacturer of whipped cream makers, soda siphons and their respective chargers, was founded in Vienna in 1811. The company established a US subsidiary in 1977 that became iSi North America, Inc., in December of 1992. The US headquarters are located in Fairfield, NJ, with worldwide headquarters in Vienna, Austria. The company also distributes the ORKAŽ Silicone Oven Mitt; a full line of ORKAŽ silicone kitchen accessories and tools, including bakeware, pot holders, trivets, spatulas, basters and brushes.
