Everyone please share your favorite one and why it is. Could be because you've sold a ton or a special feature or you have a neat way of demoing it.
Hopefully we'll all get great ideas here.
Thanks for sharing!!!
I LOVE the prep bowl set. I use them all the time for transporting things to shows or from my shows (egg yolks not used). I have also made the mini cakes in them....way too cute. They are convenient for storing items in the fridge. I like that they have the measurements on them.
I also like the rice cooker. I have to say I like it for cooking things that boil over in the microwave. I can also do Minute Rice in the microwave. I have to say my kids use it all the time for Rymen Noodles (spelling??). They boil over all the time. I use it for grits.
I also like the meat tenderizer, although I haven't used it much. When I do need to use it, it nice. Instead of a hammering motion, it is a pounding motion. It eliminates the splatter I got with my old hammer style tenderizer.
It's hard for me to narrow down the list to a favorite...although I've probably used the prep bowls the most. We used them last weekend for dying Easter eggs...they were perfect! I've used the Med. Bar Pan quite a lot as well! I'm anxious to get and use the mixing bowl set too! I almost ordered them on my kit enhancement with my portion of the tax return, however we are ordering the Pro. Cookware sets.
I do love the Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls. I didn't think I would cause I'm such a fan of the batter bowl. It is really nice when you need something to stay hot (mashed potatoes) or you are making large servings over 8 cups.
I love the Prep Bowls also. I did a show with them over the weekend and had a ton of ideas for people to use them:
- the obvious- hold ingredients when hosting your own show
- cereal, pudding, ice cream for kids
- Good way to limit how much junk kids eat--use the bowl to put chips, popcorn or some other snack in them.
- another good leftover storage idea, AND you can stack them in the fridge
- You get 6 in a box, so you can always use a couple to store little things in the kitchen or office such as paperclips
- egg dying
- My daughter will use it to eat salad because she thinks it means she isn't getting as much--1 cup is 1 serving
I found a flier on this site about stones and I am thinking of doing a similar one about the prep bowls because there are so many uses for them.
I love the Prep bowl set as well.
- at a show I ask if the guests watch cooking shows, like Emeril, Bobby Flay,etc. and I point out that they always have their ingredients out and measured in prep bowls before they start. I go on to say that it really cuts down on time and makes making the recipe a lot smoother when you use the prep bowls. And I end with "And you look like you know what you're doing, and that's half the battle!"
The medium bar pan, I call the "Goldilocks" pan - some found the small one too small and the large one too big, but this one is just right!
I love the prep bowl set myself also. I use them to put my husbands lunch in and they will fit in his lunch container. I have sold several of the new colored spatulas though. People can't get enough of them.
i think my favorite things are the scrapers and the batter bowls. i love the scrapers because i am greedy and like to get everything out of the bowls..lol...and it makes cleanup easier. i love the batter bowls because you can freeze them, cook in them etc. i cooked my daughters birthday cake in the big bowl. it was a barbie cake and it was the perfect size and all..it was great. honestly the only thing that i have that i dont care much for is the deluxe cheese grater. but i love everything else i have
one of my favorite items is the US&G and i really only use it for tomatoes. I also love the batter, i do want to get the prep bowls and the stainless steel bowls. I also love my stones, i dont cook with anything else any more.
Does the new round stone fit in a normal sized toaster oven ??? I use my small bar pan in my toaster oven at least once a day ! great for the kids lunch , f.fry, nugets, re heating pizza ect... The new round stone looks great for making nachos !!
The only thing I've used so far are the Chef's tongs. I actually made the recipe that was included with it-Terriyaki Meatballs over Rice. yum!! I think this would be a good show recipe. It goes along with the Asian themes as well. That's all I've used so far! I have a long way to go to use everything.
You're doing better than I am, Becky. The only thing I've used is a twixit! It was great, btw
My favorite is the Garlic Press. I use alot of garlic in my cooking. I prefer to use the cloves over the jared crushed garlic. But I hated thinly slicing the garlic and getting the smell on my hands. I use mine ofen
