This is the list, as best as I can remember from my Skype call with my teammate. She showed me catalog photos.

  • Ceramic Pots/Pans Collection....several saute pans, stockpots, roasting pan. All open-stock. -All of them are white. They can go on the stove-top, oven, etc. They have 3-yr guarantees.
  • Roasting Pan (black). The bottom is made out of light weight cast iron aluminum. The roasting pan has a clear glass lid, that can double as another casserole dish. The top is microwave safe! It will sell for $99.
  • Added 2 colored knives.
  • Got rid of the self-honing knives.
  • Added a Forged Cutlery knife (carving knife).
  • TANGERINE is the fall color- has a scraper (like the pink one we had for HWC, only Tangerine), the glass-cleaning brush, Twix-its, and the soft-tip cleaning brushes are all colored
  • They have a Green Scraper with a snowman on it for Christmas ($8).
  • 4 new rubs – I don’t remember for sure: Maple Herb, Smoky Red Pepper, and I forget the other two.
  • 2 new Itty Bitty Bevs: Cosmopolitan and Apple-tinis.
  • A food holder for the Microplane Coarse Grater .
  • Got rid of the Digital Thermometer, brought back the red dial meat thermometer. (The digital has a problem with coming apart at the head! I’ve had it happen, as have lots of others.)
  • Brought back the Pastry Cutter tool.
  • New or Redesigned Wine bottle opener.
  • A Bag for chilling your wine bottle on the go? - not sure what that one is.
  • Soda-can savers- a gadget that goes on the top of the soda can to seal it up if you don’t use it all at once (who does that??)
  • A new pot in the SA line...”cocotte” - a small dish perfect for making dips, brie, etc. Has a lid. *By the way- google the definition of that product name! Yikes! :eek:*
  • The Season’s Best will now be $2, but has COLOR photos for each recipe. She didn’t know if it had fewer recipes, but said it felt the same size. I’m guessing if each recipe has a color photo, then it must have fewer recipes. We’ll see. But it did look nice.
  • Bamboo Fiber bowls also available in a green color – looked kind of “olive green” from what I could tell in the photo via Skype.
  • Round-up for the Heart Trivet – is now CORK material. She didn’t see it up close, so not additional info on that.
  • Shipping is going up to $5.25 on shows in lower 48 states! Yikes.
  • Hold & Submit 2 shows in a month for incentives is going away. You apparently will have some time to submit the show, as long it was held. She didn’t give me many details on that other than it has changed.
  • Cookware prices going up. She didn’t say how much.
  • The new consultant kit had some product changes: took out the Ult.Mandoline, replaced with a Man.Food Processor and the Simple Slicer. Added 2 small bamboo bowls/spoons. Changed the Microplane Grater to be the Coarse grater w/food holder, and then added the zester tool.

I know I’m missing a few things, but I can’t remember them now. Those WITH a catalog or list in front of them I'm sure will chime in soon. But hopefully this helps with your craving for a bit. ;)


Edit: Couple of other items that someone posted that I had forgotten:
  • a new Cutting board with grooves on both sides for carving.
  • Digital Kitchen Scale - the dish is removable and DW safe.
    Recipe Cards ˜ Hot & Cheesy Bruschetta Dip, 30 (NS10)
    Recipe Cards ˜ Sweet & Salty Caramel Mousse Cups, 30 (NS12)
    Recipe Cards ˜ The Big Enchilada, 30 (NS11)
    Recipe Cards ˜ Deep Covered Baker No-Knead Bread, 30 (NS87)

THANK YOU for posting!!!

Happy about the digital thermometer being re-done...mine always seems "off" temperature.

Curious about the new pot in the SA line...

Nothing seems like a "must-have" to those of us who have a bunch of stuff!

So the ceramic line of pots/pans are white??? Hmmm....wonder how easy it will be to keep those "clean"?

Can't wait to see pics of some of the colors!!!

EDIT: Googled cocottte...I see what you mean about the definition!
But, here is a link to the Staub brand of a cocette... Looks cool:
Staub usa - Products La Cocotte

I know the 11" pan is starting at $100 and the line has a 3 year warranty. It does not come in a set only individual pieces.

Thank you!

I'm excited about the colored SB, green knives, and the colored scrapers. Probably most excited about the SA dish. Its always neat to try out the new pantry products too!

One of my consultants won the $100 covered skillet and has used it several times. She's in LOVE with it!

Just from comparing the catalogs, this is what I found saying goodbye:
Digital pocket therm *redesigned
Pastry Blender *redesigned
Season's best
Cake Pedestal
Adjustable Tiered Tower*redesigned
Wine Bottle Opener *redesigned
ALL knives with honing cases
New Color
Glass cleaning brush
Soft Tip cleaning brushes
twixit clip
Classic Scraper ***Classic scraper is still in there in white for .50 more than the new orange one. I found this odd.

I see a great joke with the coccotte.... The irony is kinda funny too... Since Consultants go out and sell things. Even the "fashionable prostitute" needs to be a good cook. Lol! Yeah that's right I said it.

Kind of excited about the new cookware and the new bevs. Yay cosmos! Excited to check everything out!

the snowman scraper is great - very sturdy feeling (a thicker, less flexible tip) - has a bamboo handle - can't wait to use it!

I've always thought the coarse grater needed a food holder.
YAY for color photos in the SB!!!!
Shipping went up for Alaska/Hawaii too. Now it's 15%+$3 and shipped SmartPost. :mad:

Does this start for the July incentive?!?! If So, I'd be so excited b/c I had a host that didn't get all her orders in time to close before end of july!

Doubt that. Most things announced are effective Sept. 1st. Plus, it's now August, so I doubt they'd go retro-active.

what is the sept host special?

Sept. hosts can pick from cookware - all 3 lines. There are levels. We didn't get the details. It's in the back of the Aug. CN in the grid. Below $650 pick a saute pan, $650 to $999 pick a skillet, $1000+ pick 2 open stock or sets.

The Aug. recruiting special for new consultants is one of the 3 skillets.

Hosts specials for Oct. and Nov. are Stoneware one month and it looked like Roasting Pan with Rack and the new Covered Roaster the other month. It was so hard to see and could not tell which was which month, which doesn't matter because we should be focusing on Aug. and Sept. right now.

For those of you who were there, did they give some ideas as to selling points of the new ceramic pans and the roasting pan, vs our EXISTING Cookware and Stoneware??

I was a bit confused when I saw it - because I've heard that our DCB cooks so well because it is not glazed on the inside- making it more like a clay-oven. Obviously I know our cookware can go from stovetop to oven. Our DCB can't. I'm just confused by this line and it's "features/benefits". Especially compared to our other stuff.

A teammate looked up the meaning while we were there. Uh, yeah, the first definition isn't the best. It's a hooker cooker :) That's as bad as saying the Round Covered Baker is a baby baker.

Interesting. Let's just say I'm liking the September special more.

Actually breathing a sigh of relief about the shipping ... because somebody leaked the Alaska shipping last night. I was afraid all shipping would become DIRECT shipping, which would have GREATLY inconvenienced my host!

Considering that all her orders were over $60, 15 percent would have been a LOT to swallow for them!

yes it is with white silicone handles...Looks kinda retro

Ah, thanks. Not to be negative, but my mom had a really nice pan with ceramic coating and it stained and chipped. And she takes REALLY good care of her things...more so than me. So, I would worry about chipping...but maybe it is not an issue with the new materials out now.

I think I need to go out and do some comparison shopping with this ceramic cookware. It's not a construction that I'm familiar with. I need to see how our prices compare. I am excited that we have a less expensive cookware option and it's all open stock.

Did anyone write down the name on the bottom of the ceramic cookware? It starts with "ae" or "ea."

The Covered Roaster is a separate piece. It is not ceramic; it's cast aluminum with a glass lid. Excited about this piece, too.

Ours has a 3-year warranty. Your mom's experience may be why the warranty is only 3 years. Our sales manager said she used it at home. It sounded like she rant it through the paces just like I would. She cooked spaghetti sauce and left something (mac & cheese?) on low by mistake for a long time til it burnt in there. She said the cookware still looks as new and white as when she got it.

Does anyone know what products will be sent for submittIng two shows in July? Also, Just to clarify,

"With two shows hold and submited has changed! It will be great! Whenever you turn the show in will be what month it goes towards. So lets say you had a show in July but submitted it in Aug. it will count to the Aug incentive."

Does this pertain to guest / host orders too? If we have a show towards
The end of the month and submit the following, do the guests/hosts
Still get the prior month specials or now the
Following months? Thanks.

No the submit 2 shows will not go into effect until September. The 8" Ceramic pan is the special consultant gift from July. What they did not say was that the ceramic cookware is like non-stick. You may not use metal in them! And no they should not stain. Lisa said that she cooked pasta sauce in them and they cleaned well. AND the film demo showed pan frying chicken in something that was a dark reddish something coating that was heavily cooked and it simply wiped out of the pan! Pretty cool actually. What I loved was the weight of it. It had to be half the weight of the other two lines. And I am with ChefShalon! That roaster is way to cool! Light weight but heavy enough to brown your meats in them on the stove top. The glass top is of a high capacity and as you can use it as a separate baking dish - AWESOME!!!! All the cookware is going up by $1 I think is what they said. Not bad considering. I am excited so maybe it will be my motivation to get going again. Cest La Vie!

Sorry Intrepid, didn't think I was leaking the news since HO sent all AK & HI consultants an e-mail with the information. :eek: I wasn't at a launch meeting, just passing on info I heard directly from HO - no note on the e-mail not to share the info.

We used to have an option to switch to 11% +$5 when we chose direct shipping for an order over $130. My guess it that won't be an option anymore. They did mention online ordering would have the option to have "rush" shipping for an additional fee and that'd we'd eventually have that option for show guests. SmartPost does give us the perk of being able to put in PO Boxes since they switch to USPS halfway through the process and a lot of people have physical addresses here that FedEx does not deliver to. :)

Excited about the green mixing bowls - wish we'd have more in those colors though. Not normally a fan of tangerine...but boy, can I not wait to try the new drink mixes! :D
