Re: Is anyone else not a fan of

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!

Yeah, but these are not 'cooking' shows.  They are kitchen shows.  Kitchen includes food, cooking, and kitchen supplies

[ Edited ]

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.

Count me in! I get frustrated with so much food on the kitchen shows too, we especially right after 2+ hours of Gourmet Holiday. I tune out.

@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.

I never watch In The Kitchen.  Just not interested.  In cooking or more kitchen "stuff" at this stage of the game.

Way too expensive for me.

When you lose some one you L~O~V~E, that Memory of them, becomes a TREASURE.
