I'm looking for a new way to demo Stoneware, any suggestions?

Maybe make two batches of brownies, one in a regular 9 X 13 pan (if you still own one) and one in the medium bar ban. Show them the difference.

Bake bacon at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes (cooking time depends on if you like it crispy or chewy).

Here is an attachement that might help too.

Buy one of the cheap immitation stones and cook on it for a while. Make garlic bread, fish sticks, etc. It will really start to smell! They are also very porous so all the grease soaks in and all the way through to the bottom!
I found this out when I broke my stone and didn't know anyone selling PC. I bought a cheap one to tide me over.
What a mistake! I am glad I kept it and now that I am a new consultant, I plan on bringing it to my shows to let customers see what an inferior product looks like up against the real thing!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I haven't done this for a while (maybe I should!) but it was a great visual. I baked a cookie on a metal cookie sheet and one on a stone. (Okay, I actually baked more...I just ate the rest!) I passed each cookie around the room so they could see the two cookies side by side. The one baked on metal had a smooth, shiny, dark bottom...was hard. The stoneware cookie was perfect. I also baked a cookie on a stone for 40 miutes and showed how it looked...didn't burn, etc. Got lots of oohs and ahhs.

I have heard of some consultants baking a batch of cookies (refrigerated dough) or a frozen pizza before the guests arrive. Time it so that it is coming out of the oven as they are walking in so they can smell it. Pass them around and let people nibble while you are doing your opening.

How do I post a new question

Sorry, I know this isn't about this thread, but I need to know how to post a new question. All I can seem to figure out is how to respond.

Thanks,

I have been doing this since I started my business in May 04. I am a BIG cookie baker- made over 150 dozen cookies for the holidays :eek: - anyway I made a batch of Snickerdoodles (these and chocolate chip are what I'm "known" for!) :) . Baked one dozen on my aluminum sheet, that I had to dig around in the basement to find, and the rest on a stone. Took 1 cookie from each and stuck it in a baggie. I have carried the SAME cookie samples for almost 2 years now!! :eek: But you're right - it really shows the difference between aluminum and stoneware. It's a great visual. Just make sure to tell them about the "10 minute rule". When your baking time is 10 minutes or less, count on adding 2-3 minutes to your cooking time.

Click on "Chefsuccess.com a COmmunity of PC Consultants in the top bar of the page. Then click on the "Topic" your question would fit into - bookings... recruiting....

At the top of that bar it will say "New Thread" Click on that and you can start your new topic.

I love this idea but I don't think I can bring myself to waste money on an inferior stone - but it is a great story that we can all use! "I know a consultant who...". Thanks!
