I am using mine for the first time at a show..for the Loaded Baked Potato Chowder. I made it last week to try it out so I didn't have to do it for the first time at that show..and I loved it..easy and good.
The chicken is the easiest demo. Have it in the baker already sprinkled with Paprika and a PC seasoning (Italian, greek, BBQ, Rosemary -- pick one). First, have the baker sitting there with the lid on and really sell the baker (fast, economical, for about what a family would pay for one meal out, talk about all the recipes that can be in the baker prepped ready for when you walk in the door end with the chicken. Walk around with the lid off, show the raw chicken, then to the microwave). I have had hosts that have never cooked a whole chicken ever. They are usually in the $5-$6 price range -- my local grocery store had them for "daily specials" last week and they were less than $2. Cross sell with the trivit(perfect size for the baker--it's hard for me to bring this trivit to shows -- because it stay on my table and I use it all the time), digital thermometer(if you are cooking meat in the microwave you want to be sure it is cooked properly), and weekday dinners done(has four DCB recipes and the rest are skillet recipes --all the ones I have tried are fanstastic and easy) -- even if someone has the baker they may not have all of the other three items.)
Use the baker yourself so you can have true excitement and examples, the chicken try a different seasoning each time, meatloaf, penne pasta, mexican chicken lasagna, potato chowder -- the 29 minutes part II has several recipes for the DCB -- I just went through the book and marked the index of the ones that used the baker -- now I just need to try them.
