    Never mind. I just saw that the Everyday Pan is in two of the New Consultant Kits so I guess it's staying!

    Has anyone gone through a new catalogue and compared it to see what's leaving?

    Probably PC will have ideas for us to use with customers. I see this appealing to young Moms who may not have a bunch of experience in cake decorating.

    I did like on the video the little tabs to hold them in the dishwasher. Still, I have TONS of Wilton. I hope the tips are at least interchangeable!

    If anyone could give us an explanation of the products, it'd be great. What's the blue bowl with the 2 roundy handles? Melamine/Bamboo?? What are the entertaining platters? MANY THANKS :)

    Silly question - is the popcorn maker silicone? I'd plug it to my bird-owning friends, but not if it's silicone.

    Does the salt and pepper grinder set mean they're getting rid of the bamboo grinders?

    ChefDi yes there is a new larger Roc croc! Check back on previous posts...it's beautiful! Curious about the color of the serving dishes. Hoping the color of food brightens then up.

    The "red thing" is a silicone microwave popcorn maker.
    I think the gray stones are quite pretty.
    Kids cooking kits come in nice boxes -- easily wrapped and nicely presented.
    Emoji (sp?) cookie cutters are the Feeding America product.

    Blue bowl is some type of plastic. It is part of the kid's cooking set. The handle is made to be comfortable in a child's hand and light weight. It does have silicone on the bottom so it won't slip.

    The entertaining platters are stoneware (as are the small and large bowls in gray & sandstone) These are glazed inside and out. You can bake on them (I'm not seeing the temperature guidelines in the catalog), serve on them AND (because they are glazed inside and out) put them in the dishwasher!

    The red thing is a collapsible microwave popcorn popper. It has a section where you can add butter or seasoning before you put it in the microwave. Very cool!

    The Rockcrok line is just beginning! The XL is just an addition. It is huge. All the other RC products are still in our line.

    I sent my brother and his new bride the Dutch Oven RC and they are so excited! Thrilled to see it goes on the grill.
    Just spoke with my upline and they are working on a wish list that would be like a registry. In the development stages!

    Does anyone know how the salt and pepper grinders are being restyled? And I assume the restyling of the DCB and RCB is a color change from Cranberry to Grey?

    Thanks!
