Thanks for the link, Aunt Bea!

I love the stoneware pans. I have a deep-dish 9x12 pan I use a lot, an 8-inch round pan, and I had the pizza stone until I dripped liquid on it while it was really hot and it broke. I thought about getting the quart-size measure/mixing bowl with the lid, but I don't have room to store it.

Have him get the current Season's Best cookbook, too. They're just little paperbacks, maybe 20 pages or so, but they have good ideas for using the equipment.

I agree that it's not overpriced for the quality. I got most of my pieces when women in the neighborhood had a frenzy of Pampered Chef parties in the mid-90s. I went to two or three a year, and had at least three myself, so I got a lot of stuff for free.

More good ideas, thanks, GG!

I'm wondering about the all in one measuring spoon I saw in Aunt Bea's link....

If it took them this long to figure out men like to cook and in many cases are much better cooks than women, they are not all that clever.

In my circumstance my wife would ask me for a list or ask me to come along had this been a PC womens affair.

Since when did cooking become a womans only domain?

Dawg this is a must have. I've owned it for 20 years. It's smaller than it looks and is perfect for cutting and serving 2" squares of anything such as sneaking just one more bite of anything yummy.
Product Detail

I was not happy with their stoneware stuff though. I had a company casserole in the oven when I heard it break in half from the living room. It was room temperature when I put it in there and PC didn't give a hoot when I asked for a replacement.

Nice, Kayelle! Thanks!

DH was told to bring cash, not sure if it's for PC, or if there's a stripper. I'll have to limit him. No $1 bills.

OK, so far, spatulas rule, along with the adjustable measuring spoon.

Cooking has never been a woman only domain, but house parties for selling products have always been.
I would imagine a sales company called something like "Tool Time" could make it big in direct marketing home parties for men.

Not every remark is intended as a dig at the other sex...

The remark in question was the, to me, novel idea of having a Pampered Chef party for men. The men in my life can cook, but I would never have thought of them going to a PC party.

Actually, with my love of power tools, I'd probably attend that!
