DebbieSAChef said:I am excited too. I love that PC comes out with new products every 6 months. I can't possibly imagine what they could be but I am so glad. It's the perfect response to the annoying person at my shows that tell me they have everything.
That's when I bust out the new catalog and ask do you have .....
That's when they say, Oh I didn't see those things. Let me look at that again.
Then I talk about how PC comes out with new things every 6 months so no one can possibly have everything, except me cause I'm a consultant and can order new products early, or earn them for FREE!!!!

Chef Kearns said:I'd like to see open stock pieces of the Simple Additions in the colors. And I don't know about you guys, but my people DID NOT like the stripes. They missed the sollid color rectangle platter.
I haven't seen any of those since I stopped working in The Loop.Mystik said:I would love to see a hot hooker.
Your name and address is a commodity that is bought and sold like corn futures. I think the only way you can get off those lists is to fake a new birth certificate, get a new SS# and move to a cardboard box in the desert 30 miles outside of Eureka, Nevada.Shawnna said:I have seen those disks in a catalog, but I can't remember what catalog it was. It was in a catalog you get that has numerous items, from greeting cards to who knows what. I usually just throw them away. I have no idea how these companies get my name and address. I wish I had ordered one when I saw it.
The_Kitchen_Guy said:Shawna, when I was a kid, my mother had a set of three tin canisters. They had a glass knob that was threaded into a hole in each lid. There were crystals inside the knobs that turned bright purple when they were baked and faded to light blue as they absorbed moisture. Once every couple of weeks, she would bake the knobs along with a cake or bread or something. I suppose they became obsolete as plastic seals became better.
I imagine the disk for brown sugar is similar in nature to those knobs and I'd like one of those myself. I know a few grains of rice in the salt shaker keeps the salt from clumping but I've never found a way to keep sugar (white or brown) from drying and clumping.
I'll try the bread trick - now that you mention it, I've heard that before but (like most other good ideas I hear) I forgot about it. My brown sugar lives in a plastic canister because trying to keep a plastic bag of powdered substances in my cabinets doesn't work. It lays like a dead body in a CSI episode and is always in the way of reaching something else.Jennie4PC said:If you throw in a piece of bread into your brown sugar it keeps it soft. Also I have not had a problem with my brown sugar clumping up since I started using the twixit clips. My MIL told us the bread trick
I'm sorry, I missed that. I was just cleaning up the counter and floor from trying to pour some leftovers into a freezer bag. What did you suggest?ChefMommyinOC said:My mother is trying to convince me to submit an idea for a baggie holder; when you're trying to save leftovers in a freezer bag, it gets hard to hold the bag open and dump/pour the food into it. She wants to see PC sell a baggie holder, something with clips and adjustable space between the clips so that your hands are free to dump/pour the food in. Haven't decided if I want to send in that suggestion or not. Any of you think that would be a 'time saver' in the kitchen?
I've been requesting a salad spinner for the three years I've been with PC!! I've had SOOOO many customers suggest this too. I hope it's in the works. Or maybe there's a strange patent on it that is holding things up. Or maybe PC is trying to figure out a way to make it better than the rest out there. I hope we see one soon!Marg said:I'd like to see a salad spinner and a stoneware mini muffin pan.
