    For me personally - I gotta have the new Snowman appetizer plates!! I have started a collection, and consider me obsessed with these adorable glass plates!!
    For me as a consultant - I'm most excited about the 2-cup prep bowls!!
    I am still wondering what the new "HOT" product is going to be with guests...any ideas??

    I think the snowmen plates and/or platter. It not only will appeal to those who entertain but so many others that collect snowmen anything LOL I have a bunch of those as customers LOL

    As for me I want it all LOL
    Okay, not so much the martini glasses, only because my customers are wine drinkers not so much the other and can't see them spending that kind of money to use for desserts.

    I don't know, Susan. I think I'll sell the 2-Cup Prep Bowls and the Conversion Magnet at every single show. I'm going to market the Conversion Magnet as a great stocking-stuffer.

    I absolutely NEED the new shears (hate the last version), and I think the Dots Martini Glasses are adorable. I don't really "need" them, but they would complete my overall Dots set! ;)

    I really want the ice bucket - I've been looking for a nice simple ice bucket since I got married 13 years ago, but nothing struck me - this is it! It's a shame there are no tongs to go with it, but I'll manage.

    Excited about the cookie sheets (love the sheet pans), and curious about the new cookie press. I love my cookie press and it works perfectly for me, so I'm not sure if I'll be getting one right away. We'll see.

    The new forged serrated knife looks like it would be a great knife to slice tomatoes, so I'll have to get one of those!

    The mesh strainers are nice, I might have to set aside some cash for those. I have a nice stainless steel colander from Williams-Sonoma, but I've been hoping for a PC one for years.

    I gave away my Christmas plates from last year (a donation for a fundraiser) so I'm not that into the snowman ones, either. I like the beaded server and the beaded cheese knives, but I have several servers and cheese knives, so they're not on my list. Overall, it looks like nice stuff, and I like that they repackaged some things and restyled some things (like the measuring spoons/cups). They will sell well. I just don't need one more measuring spoon or cup in my house!! (That's the hardest part about restyled products!!!)

    I think it all looks great, and I have already 2 people on my Christmas list done! The dots martini glasses for my sister, she loves the dots collection, and the snowman plates for my mom-in-law she collects snowmen. I think I will have to get a set of the martini glasses for myself, I love making fancy desserts! I can't wait to see what the guests are excited about

    Anyone else figure the new Stackable Measuring Cups will stack perfectly in the Easy Read Measuring Cups?

    It's much easier and quicker to say that the only new product that I'm not excited about would be the 5" strainer.

    I don't think I'd use the new beaded tools much, but I did have many customers last year who loved the beaded serving pieces, and I'm sure will be happy to add the new pieces to their collection - so I'm excited for them!

    I'd love to get the cookie press but I don't see myself getting it any time soon. Ditto for the shears and the pocket thermontor.

    The sheet would have been nice, but oh well. I can totally live without the magnet and the recipe cards.

    I can't wait to get my 2 cup prep bowls! I use the 1 cup ones for just about everything! The snowman plates and platter are cute, perfect for my cookie exchange party.

    EVERYONE needs the recipe cards!

    10 recipes that all look GREAT, and can be made in less than 30 minutes, using the DCB or 12" Skillet, along with menus and shopping lists for 2 weeks of meals. If any of your customers are busy moms, then you will want to invest the less than $10 it will be to add these to your kit.

    I agree about the cards! I'm going to give them as a thank you gift to any customer who purchases a DCB or 12" skillet at regular price. I love that the shopping list cards are laminated, so you can check things off with a dry-erase marker. And that (if you don't need any "extras" at the store) you can still go through the 15-items line for each week.

    I'm excited about the cookie press, too. I had a turn-type press with metal plates long ago, and they release easier than the current PC press. A clustermate has already expressed concern about not knowing how much to turn it (vs. the trigger handle, which was easy). But it becomes a motor memory to know how much to turn it. And I find it easier than the trigger, because some discs in the current press needed 1 1/2 squeezes, anyway.

    The 2 new sauces are really tasty, and I think will be big sellers. Can't you just taste the Maple Honey Mustard on a turkey sandwich?

    And I really think the ice bucket and shaker set will be popular, too. Cocktails are so hot right now. It's great to have something that plays into that.

    Ooooooohhhh, I didn't think about it there, but I think you may be right!!
    I'm excited about these, b/c I've always preferred individual cups over the easy adjustable one. I only had the other one for shows, never for personal use in my kitchen.

    Me, too! I have a set of traditional metal cups that I love, and I can't wait to replace them with the new set. hmm... gotta go find my Easy Adjustable items and put them in my "yard sale" bin.

    Oh, and the fact that the set comes with a leveler and everything snaps together--genius!
