    The "wish list" is available now. Go to the website and you'll see a tab for it. Later today (tomorrow) when I'm at my desk, I'll post my notes for using it.

    The red bowl is the new microwave popcorn popper with butter melter. It's collapsible as well.

    I feel the same way...I'm going to have to see how the PC cake decorating stuff works & how I would promote it over what is already out in the market today. Plus, it's not like people can just know how to use those tips. It takes practice to get the correct angle & pressure. But I took Wilton classes, so maybe I'm biased!

    When you get them in your hand you will see and feel a big difference. I took the classes decorated cakes for years had a catering business and honestly when I got my hands on them they are top notch. I was like everybody else I said really Wilton but then when I held them you can tell it is not Wilton.

    Scott, not sure if someone already answered this-the blue (turquoise) mixing bowl is part of the kids baking set. It is sized for kids & handle allows them to hold 2 different ways (over or under). There is also a small rolling pin for kids that has turquoise handles, it's part of the kids baking collection. I think it will be easier for kids to use than the baker's roller we have now, plus better for other heavier cookie doughs. There are some stoneware gray & sand colored bowls & entertaining platters (serveware). Sorry, if I just repeated what someone else already told you.

    Hope that's true! It will be hard to convince me until I use them that what I'm using now is not as good. But PC usually doesn't come out with products unless it can improve on something, so I am hopeful that is the case here. I do like the fact that the bags are precut, that will make it easy for the novice to just pop in the tips & go! I'll keep an open mind when trying them out! I really want to be able to do baking classes, it would be so much fun & right up my alley!!

    Thank you jjaastef for posting the pictures of the DCB, grinders and kids' sets. I can't say I love the first two even though it does look like they are more contemporary, but I think the kids' sets are really awesome and something we've been needing for a while. I can't wait to see them in person!

    Was there any mention of a change to the large bar pan?
    Is any of the executive cookware going on open stock?

    I think you're talking about the entertaining platters? You can heat & serve appetizers, mains & sides. They are glazed inside & out. They grey is the interior & the sand is on the outside, so you can put them in the dishwasher. There are 2 sizes that come as a ste or individually:
    Large - 15 1/2 x 10 1/4
    Med - 13 x 8 1/2
    Does that help?

    The bar pans are unglazed:
    med - 11½" x 7¾" x ¾"
    large - 10" x 15½" x 1"
    So they are different sizes & I think the entertaining platters are also not much of an edge & look a bit rounded vs being a straight rectangle.

    Debbie Downer warning....After looking through the new SB, not finding too much that is overly appealing. Only 2 dessert recipes. That said....once I try a few, I may change my mind! Lol!

    Granted I haven't seen the entire new SB, but when they previewed it at Conf, I thought several of the recipes sounded interesting. I'm really want to try the Harissa one for sure. But it it does come down to how they taste & easy it is to get ingredients/spices. Hopefully, you'll find at least 1 more that you can use to promote that's not a dessert (but desserts are always good!) ;)
