Pampered Chef: What do you do while food is in the oven?

    Do you take orders, show more products, mingle with guests? I will be having my first show soon and was just interested in others procedures. TIA

    I take orders after this is all done.

    I'll say, We're gonna play a couple of fun games with prizes and then I'll come around and help you with your orders and answer any questions...

    That's when I pull out my games and give out prizes. I only do 2 games and 2 prizes, and the cheap one's like a mini spatula or bamboo tongs.

    If I'm done before the food is out then I talk about other products like the Peeler/Corer/Slicer..I always bring an apple or two with me just in case and they just love that thing. Especially when I tell them they can use a potato with it too and make curly fries..they love it.

    Much luck to you.

    I do my PC opportunity commercial while the host pops the main recipe in the oven. By the time she's back in her seat, I've finished that and go on to one of 3 spiels that I do at every show...stoneware, cookware or Simple Additions. It's also a good time to show a couple of new products (I set up displays and ask whoever is sitting nearest to be "Vanna"), point out good Christmas gifts/stocking stuffers. ("Hey, is anybody here looking for an easy gift for a babysitter, a neighbor or a teacher? Check out ____ on page ___. If you know of a wedding that's coming up, the stainless steel bowls make a really impressive gift. Or for a sentimental gift, get the recipe binder and have the couple's friends and family write down their own special recipes. The couple will treasure it!")
