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.

My teammate said Level 1 had the 8" ceramic saute pan, the Smoky Red Pepper Rub, and the Round Up trivet. I dont remember if there was another item.

And I would think that a show from July turned in for August, remains the same for guests/hosts as far as their benefits. i think they are just trying to help us when working for incentives, because before, a cross over month didnt count for any incentive at all. But until we see the fine print, we wont know for sure.

They pointed out that 40% of people use ceramic cookware and that we were missing a huge market. Having it open stock helps too and it is cheaper. I do wonder about the quality w the 3 yr warrenty. I am pretty excited and hope to get piece or two.

I am very excited about the kitchen scale. I use mine constantly and it is just starting to fall apart...so I was ready to start looking for a new one. SOOO glad I waited. I almost went to Bed Bath & Beyond today and would have most likely bought one.

Now that I saw the pictures, that cocotte defintely looks like something I want.

I will be able to pass on the cookware (DH will be happy as I have no room for even 1 more pan).

The tangerine color seems nice. Didn't we have an "orange" color a season or two ago? With eggplant or something? This "orange" seems "brighter"!

I don't "get" the bevs to go bag. I was hoping it would be a "sleeve" you put in the freezer then put around a bottle, but looking at the pictures, it appears as though you need to add ice to it? Any benfit over any other insulated tote?

Also, VERY happy I never bought our roaster pan and I may just get this new one. Great idea about making the lid double as a baker.

Someone asked about different selling points for the ceramic, like Tracy99 said, over 40% of consumers are in the market for a ceramic cookware and we are missing the market. The pieces are cheaper, nothing over $100. Everything is open stock so it's not a big investment at once. It cooks quickly just like our other cookware as well as evenly. The pieces are surprisingly lightweight and are very cool/retro looking. The white color will go with any other cookware that you have.

They actually touched on different questions you could ask any of your guests who are in the market for cookware to help them figure out which line would fit their needs best. We talked about asking about how many people they cook for, how much time they have to do their cooking, what type of cooking do they like to do (seering, etc) as well as a few more questions that I can't think of at the moment.

I'm definitely looking forward to getting a few pieces.

Ashley - Here are the directions that Kam posted in a different thread. It works great.
Going to try typing this on my phone...

Go to product adj like you dont know the show number.

There should be an item/shipment listed with no host name and a G in the number.

Go to fedex.com and track by REFERENCE.

Type in that number followed by 01, fill in country and your zip code.

I see it as a marketing/selling pt. Sell to people who are learning to cook, low on income (I am thinking college age, starting out in life). Then after a few years get more serious and upgrade based on your cooking style. I dont think they could lifetime it just because I dont think it is made to hold up like stainless, etc

My gma can't lift very much so these pans would be great for her compared to the other ones plus all the other ideas listed above.

41% of the cookware market are people looking for "Other Nonstick" cookware. Basically these are the people using and buying the cheap crud. It's not that they are specifically looking for ceramic, it's that they can't afford the expensive stuff and PC is trying to fill that large hole with an affordable alternative they can buy piece by piece (hopefully until they can afford the good stuff) It's a decent alternative for people in the market for cheap cookware.

Ceramic cookware does not fill just the "cheaper" gap. The reason so many folks use ceramic, is because of the dangers of non stick cookware. The greener way to cook is use stainless or ceramic. If you go to high end cooking stores you will notice that ceramic is everywhere. As much as I loved my professional cookware, I gave it up for both health and environmental concerns. I use exclusively stainless and ceramic with a piece of cast iron here and there. Good for PC for recognizing. I get a lot of questions at shows about the safety of our non stick. Now they have an alternative.

I'm confused about the roasting pan. Does it replace the roaster we already have?

No. It's about half the size and has no rack. It's use is totally different and with the lid also being usable for oven or microwave, very versatile.

In the issue of the shipping going up to $5.25, I guess I will be throwing away all the order forms I have and ordering new forms with the new shipping price? I'm still rather new to this, so still grasping the concept of things. Thanks for your help!

Also~The new 2013 Calendars that we are able to order on P3, does anyone know the dimensions on those. Do you plan to resell them or give them away?

I think I will order new receipt forms. It was one thing to cross out $4.50 and right $4.75. But crossing out $4.50 or $4.75 and marking $5.25 wouldn't look so good to customers. The receipts don't cost that much anyway.

As far as the calendars, I don't remember the exact measurement, but they made them last year so they fit in a lg manilla envelope perfectly for mailing. (9x10?) I wouldn't resell them. But they make great Host gifts - for upcoming hosts and for past/favorite hosts, etc.

I would just cross off the current shipping and write in the new one. That's what I usually do. Now I won't do the ones that's I've already crossed off before.

I know that the calendars are about the size of a catalog, they fit into the same sized envelope to mail them. I sent calendars out to all of my hosts from the year and gave them out to the ones that host a show through the end of the year. If I have more, I start to give them away for anyone ordering $100 or more.

Thanks for your suggestions! I thought about sending my past hosts calendars and including a letter thanking them for hosting a show with me and letting them know when their 10% off discount expires.

DON"T!!! The only thing that changes on them are the shipping rates. Phone numbers and the guarantee (what makes the receipt "official") stay the same. Some people just cross off the old price and write in the new one. I actually use the small (80/page) return address labels and print the current shipping prices on them. The labels can easily fit three prices, so I cut the labels in thirds (after printing when I'm labeling receipts) and put them on the top receipt. I think it looks nicer.

Also~The new 2013 Calendars that we are able to order on P3, does anyone know the dimensions on those. Do you plan to resell them or give them away?

They will fit in a manilla envelope. People use them for all kinds of things. I send them to my past hosts, my family, and will use them as door prized in November-February. I send each of my hosts from the current year a calendar. Any hosts whose PHD has expired during the current year I will also send them a calendar along with a gift certificate (redeemable only through me and usually good November through February) to encourage them to have another party.

I almost never throw out old carbon receipts. We have to cross ours out anyways (for Alaska) so I cross it out in red and when I'm going over the specials, I go over the details on the order form and let them know what the current s&h rate is. For host packets, I always print the outside order forms from Consultant's Corner :)

Ok. It's obviously been awhile since I bought the sales receipts. They seem to be much more expensive than they were! wow! Yeah- I'll keep crossing out the price, or use Jane's trick with the stickers. :)

If anyone is seriously going to throw away order forms, send them me instead! In Alaska, shipping is 15% + $2 (15% +$3 come Sept. 1st) so that preprinted $4.75 (or whatever it is) makes no difference.

So, some of you have NO clue who I am and some may remember me. I've been in the semi-active mode for the past 3 years and just doing shows here and there so remain active and to keep my stats, etc. I've been trying to decide whether to stay with PC or to say goodbye. I have to say, that the new products are not intriguing me like they used to and I am honestly quite miffed about the shipping increase. This really is getting BEYOND reasonable. Think about it: each order for a show is shipped in ONE shipment (typically) and I can guarantee you that the total shipping for that order is considerably lower than all of the individual shipping charges added together. THAT, on top of the fact that PC continues to increase the product prices makes me an unhappy consultant. I still love the products and always will. I just don't know that I can honestly "justify" to my customers the continual increases. I don't mean to start a war, just wanted to get that off my chest after reading about the new products.
