    I personally don't use the medium bar pan much. I LOVE the original Bar Pan and use it all the time - ditto for the Small Bar Pan. I just don't have much need for something inbetween. I do promote it to my guests though because some to have smaller ovens or just two people and can find lots of uses for it.

    I use the fluted pan a lot though. Of course for the cakes. I also bake potatoes in it and have made some of the other recipes in the PC cookbooks.

    I have made meatloaf in it and monkey bread and baked chicken (yummm!) just to name a few!

    I usually tell my guests that I think the Bar Pan is a great "entry level" piece, because it is so versatile (Pizzas, Brownies, Bar Cookies, French Fries, Chicken Nuggets, you name it). I use mine in my kitchen all the time. Remember that it's not necessary to show every piece of stoneware, as long as you can "paint the picture" for your guests. I sell lots of Stoneware Bar Pans and I almost never demo on them!

    That being said, the Stoneware Fluted Pan is a great stone to bring to shows to demo the incredible microwave cakes (I usually will do this as a second recipe, if the headcount warrants it, as a thank you to my host). Try making a cake as the guests come in, put it in the microwave and turn it out when you start your show. Lots of oohs and ahhs! :D Wait until your main recipe is in the oven and finish it off when it's cool.

    There are some great recipes for the Chicken in the fluted pan and I have begun using my fluted pan to make meatloaf - it comes out so moist and juicy! I'm attaching a file with some Fluted Pan recipes.

    HTH!
