In another episode of ABC's Shark Tank, Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner and Robert Herjavec receive pitches from Dude Wipes, EZ Pee Z, Milk and Brookies and Table 87 Coal Oven Pizza.

No special guest on this Shark Tank but Cuban, O'Leary, Corcoran, Greiner and Herjavec are ready to accept pitches from four new companies looking to get the best possible investments.

About Table 87 Coal Oven Pizza

Tom Cucco is hoping that the sharks will warm up to his Table 87 Coal Oven Pizza. Cucco says that his restaurants were the first to start offering coal oven pizza by the slice and now he is looking to take the idea and run with it.

Cucco wants to take Table 87 Coal Oven Pizza nationwide by freezing and packaging his pies.

"'Home of the coal oven slice.' When we opened Table 87 In Brooklyn Heights, we set out to sell coal fired pizza by the slice using only the freshest, most delicious ingredients." -Table87

The ask: $200,000 for 10% equity.

How it went down: Cucco makes a very interesting pitch and even serves the sharks some of the coal oven pizza. All sharks are impressed.

Cucco is flash-freezing frozen pizza and giving it to retailers to see in the frozen section. He is in 250 markets and has sold $260,000 worth of frozen pizza.

O'Leary tells Cucco that the cost for what he wants to do is very high and it's why Domino's and Pizza Hut aren't getting into the frozen pizza business.

Cucco has an online store and Cuban is interested in having Cucco be the on-demand pizza specialist.

Herjavec believes it's too risky and pulls out. O'Leary wants to wait to see what happens. Corcoran says she wants him to pick one direction. She wants to make an offer but wants a lot more of his business.

She wants $200,000 for 30% of his business. O'Leary offers $200,000 with a royalty on every slice until he receives $600,000.

Greiner offers $250,000 for 20% equity in his company. Cuban doesn't like the idea of the stores and for that matter he is out. Cucco locks in a deal with Greiner for $250,000 for 18.5% equity.

About EZ Pee Z

The EZ Pee Z potty training device was created by Brian Kleinschmidt. EZ Pee Z works as a normal adult lid but has the ability to fold back turning it into a smaller more kid friendly sized seat.

The EZ Pee Z prevents kids from possible accidents when it comes to falling into the bowl or having to sit in an uncomfortable position.

It's a simple yet potentially useful product, one that Kleinschmidt hopes gains him a big investment from the sharks.

"MAKING POTTY TRAINING AS EZ AS 1...2...PEE! EZPeeZ appears and operates as a normal adult size toilet seat, but with a simple flip of the lid it converts to a child size seat." - EZ Pee Z

The ask: $50,000 for 15% equity.

How it went down: O'Leary immediately sees a problem with the design because it is not padded and it might pinch someone near the hinge. Herjavec doesn't believe that many people want to change their toilet seats.

Cuban doesn't buy his stories and immediately pulls out of the deal. Corcoran doesn't buy it either and dips out on the deal as well. Herjavec says that he was too transparent and doesn't believe in the product and also pulls out of the deal.

Greiner says he has no proof of concept and also pulls out of the deal.

O'Leary says there is no market and advises Kleinschmidt to take the idea out back and shoot it, before pulling out as well. Kleinschmidt goes home with no deal.

About Milk and Brookies

Jovon English, Marques Brooks and Naimah Harris have a sweet treat for the sharks when they pitch their business, Milk and Brookies. Their store specializes in a blend of a cookie and brownie combo, hence the "Brookies" part of the name.

Milk and Brookies operates out of California and is looking to score a sweet deal with one of the sharks.

"Milk + brookies is LA's premier destination for one-of-a-kind brownie-cookie combinations.

Our products are made with fresh ingredients to ensure the finest quality. We offer specialty brookies, including OG, Red Velvet, Blondie, Turtle, Peanut Butter, Snickerdoodle and Sugar, along with new creations from our test kitchen." Milk + Brookies

The ask: $100,000 for 20% equity.

How it went down: No one is full time in the company and that worries O'Leary. They have sold $14,000 worth of Brookies so far. The sharks believe that they are under-selling their Brookies. Cuban dips out on the deal.

O'Leary says they are a hobby and not a business and pulls out of the deal. Herjavec says no to the Brookie but yes to the dance team.

Corcoran says it's too early and has to pull out of the deal. Greiner also pulls out of the deal and Milk and Brookies goes home empty handed.

About Dude Wipes

Jeff Klimkowski, Sean Riley and Ryan Meegan are the brains behind Dude Wipes, a product they came up with after being roommates in Chicago. Their product is a solution for men who want to stay clean no matter what they're doing.

Dude Wipes are flushable wipes that can be used to freshen up though it is unscented. Dude Wipes are geared towards cleaning your face, hands and underarms.

"In 2010, they decided to make wipes specifically for the adult male market.

They spent the next year in research and design and prepared four pallets of custom-made wipes to sell.[3][4] The product was launched in early 2012 and Dude Products became the first company to introduce wipes for the adult male demographic." - Dude Wipes

The ask: $300,000 for 10% equity.

How it went down: They have sold $300,000 but projecting $1.5 million. Cuban thinks they will be successful but he is not a wipes kind of guys and thinks they are underestimating the amount of capital they need, he pulls out.

Corcoran doesn't think that men will pay double for wipes and for that matter she is out. Herjavec offers $300,000 for 25% and so does O'Leary. Greiner doesn't agree with the evaluation and steps out on the deal.

The guys counter with a split but O'Leary and Herjavec will only go in for 27.5%.

The rest of the sharks are advising the guys to leave the offers alone. The guys of Dude Wipes end up going with Cuban who jumps back in for $300,000 for 25%.
