Pampered Chef: Product Use & Care Cards

    Hi. I started PC a year ago plus I have been a PC customer for over 5 years and have accumulated many, many product use & care cards from all the wonderful products I have received free or purchased. Does anyone have any suggestions how to store them for easy access? They have been shoved in a drawer but it's getting full now.

    PS: I love this site. I am so glad my director brought it to my attention. :)

  2. The Recipe Collection Binder holds them great and you can add additional by purchasing them on the replacement parts order form.

    What I have done is purchased the Recipe Collections Binder and put the cards in it. I place them in their respective categories for easy access. You can tape tabs to make the dividers for the different categories. I find that the clear sleeves makes it easy to retrieve and keep them from being soiled.

    I'm relatively new to PC, too.
    I've been putting all the Product Use and Care cards I've accumulated
    in an Index Card File Box (available at Office Depot, Office Max, Target, etc).
    They come in all different sizes and they're inexpensive, too. I bought the
    alphabetized dividers for the box, too. Works great!

    Thanks for the tips on using both the Recipe Collection Binder & a file card holder. Thought I can seperate the use & care portion & file in card holder, first by category and than alphabetically. Than place the recipe portion in the Recipe Collection Binder. This will be way better than rummaging through a drawer. Thanks again. :D

    large bar pan can be used to fry bacon in the oven
    deep covered baker - any casseroles you normally heat in the oven, heat in baker in microwave 10 min max.
    i use my glass bowls (prep, batter, trifle) when I make homemade ice cream. I freeze them beforehand and they get nice and cold so the ice cream doesn't melt on its way from the ice cream maker to the freezer
    i use the mix n masher as a pastry blender when I'm making any kind of dough (saw that on here)
    I use my scrapers in my cookware
    I use my apple corer/peeler/slicer to peel potatoes for a big batch of mashed potatoes (loosen the coring blade and pull it down to only peel without coring and slicing.
    Those are just off the top of my head...I'm sure I'll think of more later...

    This thread is originally from 2004, so maybe there had been lots of consultants making "recipe collections binders".

    ETA: I re-read a post that said they bought the binder...so I guess PC used to sell one. Maybe it was only for consultants though?

    LOL....Thanks. Usually, I catch that! That would make sense. I googled it and found it on ebay and the like, figured out what it was and that it was no longer sold. :)
