Bean baker...dcb?

Customer asked about if we had a product that would slow cook beans in the oven. She said there was something she had like a 'bean baker' I think she called it. She insisted she didn't think the DCB could slow cook raw beans like that. Any ideas on that?

She is probably talking about a clay pot that is used in Mexican bean baking. I DO think that the DCB would do it...ask her how she does it, buy a bag of beans and give it a try.

It's only going to cost you about a buck!

I use mine to slow cook beans all the time. In fact, it is better than other "bean pots" that are glazed inside. The unglazed interior of the DCB creates a far better tasting bean.

I'm doing baked beans in mine right now! We're having them for dinner w/ burgers on the grill to celebrate Spring! (even though it's 30 degrees here right now!)

Actually, a girl on my team was thrilled that she could make slow "country beans" in the DCB. She soaked pinto beans for 2 hours then it took 1 hour and 2o minutes in the microwave for them to be perfect.

She was so excited when she called me to tell me how fast it was. Since I never have made beans from scratch I wasn't too excited. She convinced me this was a huge deal. If it's 3:00 and you are thinking country beans sure would be good tonight; the earliest you would be able to eat them would be at 9:00. The beast beans are soaked overnight. The minimum you soak beans is two hours and then you bake them in the oven for four hours. Yes, 4 hours!

She was so excited to share that she can have beans in no time...and that they are dirt cheap to make.

I shared that story many times at my shows. For the people who want slow beans fast -this a benefit.

For the lady looking for a bean baker...you have it. It's the DCB!!!

I have a friend who just started "Celebrating Home" which is a new combo of 2 old direct sales companies, don't remember which. But anyway, they have a Bean Pot, which their consultant was pushing as their must have in the kitchen. I would say the DCB would be the equivalent, but better. Their bean pot is round with bowed sides, so i think cleaning and serving would be more difficult. Our stoneware seems more insulated than theirs as well.

Thanks ladies. I'm informing her of what you're all telling me. Perhaps she will add it to her order, or next time she'll order it. I love the DCB
