    Yes to the above two! Would love those! Also, I really want a cookbook holder. I would love to see the Batter Bowls redesigned with a silicone ring on the bottom so they don't scoot all over the counter top (I always put a hot pad/trivet underneath mine).

    The small gravey pan that they gave out at leadership a few years ago . It's small just enough to melt butter or have gravey in it

    Since they've been doing a lot of re-designs lately, here are a couple I'd really like to see:

    ~A better spout on the batter bowl, so liquid doesn't spill all over whenever I try to pour. Also, better lids.

    ~A stronger casing around the microplane grater. I've cracked 3 now. I love that thing, but it's frustrating.

    Then they wouldn't be able to go in the microwave...
    Also a nylon or bamboo fork, like the one we have only bigger, for frying chicken cutlets...

    Silicone could go in the microwave, couldn't it? Just not a metal ring...I would like to be able to stack the batter bowls, ie... the handle would have to be open at the bottom, and a better pour spout.

    Personally, I'd like to see a clock/timer in stainless steel. Also, I'd love a new "All-time favorites" type cookbook, where we could perhaps offer our favorites for the content!! Recipes like Mandarin Pasta Salad, and the awesome Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte would be in there, for sure!! lol
    Also, I'd love to see a cookbook specifically for different products, like one for the torte pans, one for the trifle bowl, etc.

    I should probably already know this, but when do we find out the new products?

    Okay. Thanks, LoriG. That's what I was thinking, but my director didn't think we should be waiting that long. She thought it would be sooner, so then I thought I was confused.

    I keep suggesting a redesign of the handles to make the BBs more stackable. Actually drew a picture on the suggestion sheet at Conference. :)

    I went to order Beer Bread on the supply order form. They will only allow one box per order...hmmmm. I have not heard of this before. Perhaps they will be dropping it?:( Hope not.

    Nope - it's been like this for quite a while now. Pantry items featured in the Season's recipes can be ordered in quanitities, but all other pantry items can only be ordered one at a time, and only four per season.

    I get requests for a smaller stainless steel scoop. And, after making a cookie recipe for Christmas that called for 1 tsp. sized balls, I'm all for that! And, I'm really hoping they come out with dots GLASSES -- juice/dinner glasses, not MORE stemmed things! A couple seasons ago, they had stemless wine glasses pictured in the catalog with the simple additions. That would even be fine. Something with the dots, but without a stem! And, colored dots, please, not the clear ones.

    In the microwave, yes. But with silicone, they probably couldn't go in the oven. I know there are some silicone bakeware pieces that can go in the oven, but I'm not sure how that would work if it was molded to glass in some way. But I guess it could work...:confused:...maybe. :rolleyes:

    While I love our deluxe cheese grater (still out on the rotary grater, wish they had a larger size grate) I almost always use my TW box grater, especially if it's a whole block of cheese.

    I have been wanting a cookbook stand too to match the SA stands.

    Ditto on the DCB recipe book and the 9x13 aluminum pan. I would like to see the Rotary Grater with a second grating wheel (more coarse). I would not be surprised to see a matching serving tray for the bar accessories.

    Wow, and I thought it was just me! I went through 3 and finally threw the stupid thing (3rd one) away. I even asked "Santa" for a Microplane (brand) like they use on Food Network because I got so frustrated with ours. That product and maybe 1 or 2 others that if asked, I honestly do NOT recommend. I've always been honest with customers! But, LOVING 99% of PC items isn't bad! They seriously need to reinvent that microplane grater though. It's HORRIBLE!!!! Maybe that so many of us have had to replace them, they will see that it is an issue!

    I really wish when they came out with the Ice Bucket they would've included tongs with it!

    It's my understanding that they original plan was to have tongs but the HO wasn't pleased with them. It's my guess that they'll make those available as soon as they've got something they like.

    I love the idea of a spice rack.

    I like the idea of the DCB cookbook. The only down side is that right now I seem like a fantastic consultant to my customers because I give a couple of recipe brochures to everyone who orders a DCB.

    I'd like to see tumblers that coordinate in some way with the SA Dots Dinnerware.

    I wish there were tongs too. We used it on NYE and it sucked without tongs

    Would love to see a rack/organizer for all my PC spices! A lid for the roasting pan. A mini DCB would be fun! Ummmmm.... that's all I can think of right this moment!

    I'd like to see a coffee maker and coffee, even if only single cup
    sst box grater with all the sides the cheap ones have - we could sell tons of those.
    recipe box to match knife holder, i'm also for a 3-4 prong bamboo fork, hard to find.
    more recipe books please... these help customers want what they tell you to use for the recipe.

    A mini DCB would be fantastic! It would work for those of us who don't have a microwave big enough to handle the DCB.

  37. I am a long time reader, but never posted before. This one is too good to pass up. I would love to see a 12 cup batter bowl. Sometimes the Classic one is just not beig enough, ya know??? And I agree with dots glasses too.
