Pampered Chef: Sales I Need To Stop Pre Judging Customers

    I was at a mechanic shop today wearing my PC shirt and started talking to the only 2 females that worked there about PC. A mechanic (male) came up to me and asked if he could order a pizza stone. I would have never thought to approach him first about PC.

    I find myself taking to the woman in a couple and a lot of times, it is the man who is the cook! We all gotta get out of that stereotype mind-set, don't we?

    I have a sticker on my catalog host kits reminding my hosts not to discriminate. Many men cook. Those who don't usually have women in their lives who do.

    I agree - a guy from work recently purchased the splatter screen from me because he has a scar on his arm from splattering grease from his cast iron skillet! 3 other guys stopped me to tell me how much they love their "pizza stones" and the rubs for barbecueing chicken. Another guy mentioned that his favorite PC tool is the All-Purpose Spreader. They all just started feeding off of each other - it was so funny!

    My husband has started cooking more now that I am preg. He loves the mandolin and the 12 inch skillet, and uses them both almost every night... he even told me he wants me to order the 7 piece next time I can get it on a big discount :) the last few weeks have changed my mind on men, they cook too and know what they like

  6. okay, I just finally joined PC, after much hesitation and trepidation. So, I feel I can post more now, lol... My boyfriend is the cook of the house and a chef by trade! So, I guess, I'm trying to reclaim the kitchen vicariously via Pampered Chef. :)

    I totally agree!! I had a maintenance man come fix something at our apartment today and he saw my old car magnet on my front door, and asked me if I do PC. He started telling me how wonderful all of our products are especially the knives and cookware. After talking with him for over 30 minutes, I found out that he wants the knife block and 2 new sets of stainless cookware, and to top it off he would love to book a show. Also, he recently became engaged, but they are waiting to get married until his fiancee is finished with her masters program in 2 or 3 years. So I am now looking at a long term customer!

    Long story short, I will never judge again!
