I'm so happy to see all these comments about the flood of prepared food products that we've been seeing over the past couple of years. I've been a member of QVC since 1986. In my mind, a cooking show should be about cooking........utensils, pots, pans, electrics, gadgets, cookbooks, bakeware and any new things that hit the market. I like to cook and am interested in this stuff. We used to see cookbooks all the time but now we're lucky if we see one a month. And a lot of the cookbooks we see now are all from QVC hosts, not that that's a bad thing, but it's pretty obvious that they're trying to keep that in house as much as possible. I also don't understand why we have to listen to 30 minutes of vacuum cleaner sales, a TSV computer deal or cleaning products during a cooking show. How many kitchen or food products do you see in a jewelry show or a clothing show? And I was totally disgusted with ITKWD show the other Sunday when it was ALL food! Like others, I shut it off. Every time I turn it on they're selling more food than cooking items! All of these prepared foods are expensive too and I think I'm somewhat safe in saying that a lot of QVC viewers cannot afford to spend $65 on a cake that serves 10! I've been wanting to vent about this for a long time and now I have so........... I'm done!

I have ordered a few things in the QVC food line but have always been disappointed. We were not happy with the overall quality.
Edited to add: my food orders were several years ago and I have no interest in ordering food now.
I watch very few of these shows because all the eating just turns me off. I need more balance in the lineup.

@mominohio I totally agree. I already quit ITKWM and will quit David's show too because it is too much prepared food, same old items, and the recipes he "makes" do not interest me. I also dislike when they spend a lot of time on a TSV that may be a vacuum or something not related to the kitchen show.

I stopped watching ITKWD long ago. Too many food items, vacuums, ect. I miss the days when the show was about products to prepare foods. Now, it's just a quick review of what was on air. I don't waste my time on his show any longer.

YES!!! I stopped watching ITKWD months ago because the show became so food centered. I checked the program guide since I was going to watch ITKWM and the theme for today is ALL FOOD items!! So I am passing on that. There must be a huge following of older women who need $70 cakes because this switch in merchandising makes no sense to me.
