Those that went- what did you learn, what do you think of the new improvements and new products for fall?
Bamboo actually isn't wood. At least not the kind of wood that is a problem. It doesn't absorb odors, liquids and juices like wood does. That's why the other bamboo products can go in the dishwasher. Maybe when the post the Product Information Guides on Consultants Corner (I think they said Aug 15th), it'll be a good one to study so we can be sure to discuss the features of a bamboo carving board in comparison to wood.chef131doreen said:I Love all of the new products the only thing that confuses me is the bambo cutting board , we have been teaching everyone about the safe from odors, how we should'nt use wood ect now we are going to sell a wood cutting board . It kind of goes against what we have been saying .

They're actually striped. Kind of thin vertical stripes going all the way around. Cranberry and butternut are a couple of the colors in there. Also white and pumpkin and eggplant. At first it kind of reminded me of a circus, but that's not a great description. They look so cool though. And stripes are a really huge style right now. They coordinate really nicely with the Entertaining Set. And there's no longer the avocado-colored rectangle platter in the Entertaining Set. It's the striped one.triplej_55 said:Thank you so much for listing the new products they sound FABULOUS!! I can't wait to get mine in the mail!!! One question, what colors are the Simple Additions?? Are they the cranberry& butternut??
Thanks everyone for all the great info! We are military overseas so it's nice to have others to talk about Pampered Chef with....

Selling just one or two a month would be great! I'm trying to figure out what to do with the one I earned for free Maybe I'll use it as some great incentive.
cheftiffany said:the Bamboo carving board through me for a loop too until I started to go through my pictures with the tips that were in the product preview room. It is meant to use at the end of the meal prep. Another words after everything is cooked. It is a Carving board not a cutting board. We are still supposed to reccommend that you use our our cutting boards for meal preparations prior to cooking (raw) then the bamboo carving board for cutting up after cooking.
I hope that makes everyone feel better. Also you have to remember that this bamboo product does not go in the dishwasher. It is not one solid piece of "wood" but many glued together then laminated. the heat from the dishwasher will mess that all up. that came from one of the Product test guys that was in the product preview room.
