    Can anyone share how to promote the Host Specials for June? I don't have a lot of ideas for the collapsible bowls.

  2. Camping is a fantastic promotion since they collapse. Also for those of us with "basic" sized kitchens, it really is a great space saver

    Might be a good time to promote a "pamper your camper' party. Since the bowls collapse, they would be good for a camper with little storage space.

    I found this on Consultant's Corner under the Product Information:

    Collapsible Serving Bowl (8 quart) – ideal size for larger portions such as family-size salads. While collapsed, serve chips and dip, or cheese and crackers.

    Collapsible Serving Bowl (4 quart) – perfect for serving family-sized portions of salad. Bring to picnics and barbecues to serve fruit, three bean, pasta or potato salad. While collapsed, serve 2-cups dip or cocktail sauce, and place chilled shrimp in rim.

    Collapsible Serving Bowl (2 quart) – great for smaller side salads, such as coleslaw, broccoli salad or Potato and Green Bean Salad with Fresh Pesto.** Use as a fruit bowl for slices of cantaloupe or honeydew melon, grapes or pineapple chunks. While collapsed, fill center well with 1-cup hummus or cheese spread and fill outer rim with pita chips, crackers or pretzel sticks.

    Here ya go! I"m also utilizing the salad and berry spinner, dcb to bake up the chicken in the micro, collapsible bowl (large) to put salad in when it's done. It really has the potential to show off a lot of products. I did this one all summer last year and it was a great hit! YOu might want to purchase the sesame oil and rice vinegar and provide that for your hosts so they don't have to buy it.

    Mandarin Pasta Salad
    This fresh, Asian-inspired main dish is ideal for impromptu entertaining.

    1 teaspoon finely chopped, peeled fresh gingerroot
    1/3 cup rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
    1/4 cup orange juice
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    1 teaspoon sesame oil
    1 envelope Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix
    2 teaspoons sugar
    1 garlic clove, pressed

    8 ounces uncooked bow tie pasta
    1/2 cucumber, scored, seeded and sliced
    1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
    1/2 cup coarsely chopped red onion
    1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach leaves
    1 can (11 ounces) mandarin orange segments, drained
    2 cups diced cooked chicken
    1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

    1. For dressing, finely chop gingerroot using Food Chopper. In Small Batter Bowl, combine gingerroot, vinegar, orange juice, vegetable oil, sesame oil, soup mix, sugar and garlic pressed with Garlic Press; whisk until well blended. Cover; refrigerate until ready to use.

    2. For salad, cook pasta according to package directions in Professional (8-qt.) Stockpot; drain and rinse under cold running water using large Colander. Place pasta in Simple Additions™ Large Bowl.

    3. Meanwhile, score cucumber using Lemon Zester/Scorer; remove seeds using The Corer™. Slice cucumber using Ultimate Slice & Grate; cut slices in half. Dice bell pepper using Chef’s Knife. Coarsely chop onion using Food Chopper.

    4. Add cucumber, bell pepper, onion, spinach, mandarin oranges, chicken and almonds to pasta. Pour dressing over salad; toss using Bamboo Spatula Set. Serve immediately. Yield: 12 servings

  11. I am not sure if this has been posted or not yet, but I use my bowl as a garbage bowl and I also use my bowl to put all of my used utensils in to take the home. So everyone can see that it is universal. And since it folds flat, Everyone loves how I pop it open to put garbage in it.
    Hope that helps.
