A funny memory

Friday, October 08, 2010

As I was washing dishes this evening I remembered a funny thing. I sold Pampered Chef back in the 1990's. I started selling it to get the product at a greatly reduced price, but I also would have liked the cash the parties brought in. Unfortunately my base was too small and I was unable to build it up.

Anyway, one gal from my church had heard so much about the pots & pans - which were guaranteed to be easy to clean - food wouldn't stick to them. Non-stick pots and pans are very common today, but 15 years ago, or so, they were fairly new on the market. Anyway this gal, "D" ordered a set of the pots and pans. Within a month of her getting them she called me up and said "I thought you said I couldn't burn anything in this pans - well you were wrong!" I was stunned - I'd NEVER said you couldn't burn any food in the pans. I replied "Of course you CAN burn food in the pans, but they're guaranteed that the food won't STICK to the pan - even if it's burned on." She said "Oh, well, now the pan is deformed, but the burnt stuff didn't stick." I don't know why that cracked me up this evening, but it did. She was such a ditz!

    hello , just read your blog. Funny memory. I don't remember going to those parties, however did b uy a product from the catalogue. Just remembered that I never have used it now going to look for it. Did have a candle party and that was an expensive one. Not to much sales. Well hope all is well.

    I have been to several Pampered Chef's parties -- but a number of years ago. My favorite part of them (outside of being there with friends) was the fact that there was always freshly-prepared food at the parties. Guess that tells you why I need SparkPeople!

    Thanks for the funny memory, Liz. Wonder if this gal is still looking for pots and pans she can't burn anything thing in. Funny!

    NOW THAT'S FUNNY! I USED TO HEAR ABOUT PAMPERED CHEF BUT WAS NEVER EVEN INVITED TO A PARTY! LOL
    I SOLD TUPPERWARE IN THE EARLY 80'S. THAT WAS ONE OF THE ONLY TIMES I COULD AFFORD TO GIVE X-MAS PRESENTS...THEY GOT TUPPERWARE!

    I could never afford the pots and pans but I have heard of them. Interesting that she thought she couldn't burn anything in them.

    I remember going to a few Pampered Chef parties. I am still using some of the things I bought then.
