If this is all of the new products, then I am sad to say that I am once again disappointed. The personal sized pizza stone and all purpose pot will be nice, but I really had hoped they would bring back some discontinued items that I and customers really liked and add a few different new ones. I had hoped for the following: 12" executive sauté pan; open-stock on all of the cookware (I get several requests for the 1.5q pot/sauce pan); the cherry pitter; the oval baker; a redesigned French-fry cutter that could handle sweet potatoes; simple additions items returned (especially things like the tiered server); carry cases for casseroles and pies (without a lid - my customers are worried the covered carriers will ruin the food); dots glasses and stemware; flexible grill basket; a silicon whisk that is the same density as the stainless whisk; the mini tart and pie pans... and many more I can't think of right off the top of my head!

The veggie strip maker is perhaps what I am most disappointed about - this is something I really wanted to see, but I wanted it more in the style of a veggetti. The one they are releasing looks dangerous in terms of cutting fingers, and won't make strips long enough for spaghetti-style veggies.

Oh, and I'm really over all of the holiday scrapers.

I was so excited when I first became a consultant back in spring of 2012 - that was a fabulous release; but it really has been all down hill since then, and so many great products have been discontinued. I really don't like the direction that things have gone in and was hoping this release might turn things around. Guess I'll have to keep hoping for next time.

I didn't know about the picture index either. Thank you so much for telling us about that, Juliann!

Comparing the current catalog to the fall/winter catalog index on consultants corner - it looks like the following items are being discontinued (please correct me if I wrong on any of these!):

Deep dish pie plate (stoneware)
12-cup Muffin pan (stoneware)
double wall tumbler
lunch totes, insulated beverage cooler, and picnic baskets (although I think these went on stop sell quite a while ago)
BBQ veggie rack
BBQ flexible turner
5" and 7" strainers
rock crock dinner set (contents have changed)
pizza cutter (redesigned to include a crust cutter part)
v-shaped cutter
grapefruit knife
measure mix and pour (looks the same but the number is different so I think its been redesigned)
fun and fab scraper collection
decorator bottle set
cookie sheet with free nylon scraper set (both are still offered separately)
microfiber towel
citrus & basil rub
citrus ginger rub
All the Best cookbook
Easy and Impressive Appetizers cookbook


Also looks like there are changes to the catalog numbers on most of the cool and serve items, so its hard to tell which have been discontinued vs restyled. It looks like the green tongs and insert are gone, but perhaps they have been just restyled to clear tongs and a white insert.

I might have missed some, and there might be a few others that have been redesigned or sets that have changed slightly.

Hope this helps until the official list is released!

Did they say anything about using the old logo...timing, etc? I imagine there are many that have stamps,labels etc using the old logo. Is everyone still able to use them for awhile?

Now that everyone is home and resting, I have a question for those who attended....from what I understand it was quite a hike from one venue to the auditorium setting. Was there any sort of transportation assistance for those with disabilities? I really need to know this since the same location is being used next year. I was unable to attend this year for financial reasons but am planning to attend next year....however , I am orthopedicly challenged and have mobility issues. Please offer your thoughts before I get a psyched for next year and then cannot travel to all the sessions. TIA

Thanks for posting! I don't understand the veggie strip maker. Why wouldn't I just use my course cheese grater? Also, if someone is buying the simple slicer and this, might as well go for the mandoline instead. What are the medium and large lids for?

I like the new logo. It's clean and simple. And, while it's similar to All Recipes, I don't think we're in danger of people confusing the two companies.

Rae, can you share info about how that Blade sharpener thing works? Also, what were they having in mind as being used in the new shallow microcooker? And what did they do to the Measure Mix and Pour in the update of it? Do you know what is in the new Gluten Free multi-purpose blend?

The one thing that sold me in it is it is SO much safer than the course cheese grater. That thing is SHARP! The other thing is it goes both ways.
I'm just disappointed that they didn't think this through more. I would have liked to have seen one that makes it longer like others on the market. But the Spiral Slice can take care of that also.

I'm in the FB group, EVernote for PC Rockstars. They just posted this link. They had a class at conference (that I'm sure was AWESOME). Here are the tools and notes from it. Evernote is an incredible, paperless way to keep your business organized and keep in contact with your customers. Check it out!

I tried to search to join that, but it must be a "secret" group... How do you join? I'm Diana Cover Porter on Facebook.

Thanks!

Just remember that it is not recommended for cheese.

I love the look of the new catalog. It's more like a magazine. The photos are excellent--really showing off the products.

Though, I don't see the mission statement. Anyone find it?

Sorry, I've been away and didn't realize it was a secret group. You have to be added by a FB friend that is already in the group. You can friend request me and send me a message and I'll add you. https://www.facebook.com/tristholden

Does anyone know when we can begin ordering from the bundles in the 2015 Holiday Helper flyer? The product codes don't seem to be active yet.
