what the heck is this thing? I won it in a raffle

    You got me to wondering. I found 2 different pieces on E-Bay. It appears to be stoneware, says it is oven proof, scratch resistant and can go in the dishwasher. It also said it will keep food hot for 45 minutes.

      I participated in an infomercial for this product in Dallas at a local TV affiliate. I was probably about 10 or 11 at the time. I remember that they made some awesome cornbread! We got a free set for participating. But, I don't think we used it much. Someone in the family may still have it. Has anyone ever seen the infomercial? I never saw it on TV. I would love to have a copy if anyone happens to have one. If so, please email me at joshmcalister at yahoo dot com

        I used to own a beautiful Dr Douglas Perfect Pizza wonder pan, it was the prettiest blue with white specks and had handles - I purchased many years ago from either QVC or HSN. I used to use it all the time for many dishes both hot and cold. It was my favorite piece until someone from "church" took off with it! I've been trying to find another one ever since. Anyone seen this anywhere?

            Funny how I have the Dr. Douglas' Wonder Baker Recipes yet my actual baker is long gone (had broken in half). Here is the recipe for Banana Nut Bread:
            1/2 Cup Sugar 1Cup Flour 1/4 Cup Shortening 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
            1 Egg 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder 2 Ripe Bananas (Mashed) 1/4 teaspoon salt
            1/4 Cup Nuts 1/4 Cup Raisins
            Cream sugar and shortening; add egg; beat thoroughly and fold in bananas, sift dry ingredients together and add to above mixture. Add raisins and nuts and bake 25 minutes at 350. DO NOT PREHEAT BAKER.

                      Hi Isabella,

                        Hi I am reading this post because i found another Dr. Douglas Wonder Baker and had one before but it broke in half. I would sure like to have the recipe book if you could possibly send. I loved my Wonder Baker! Thanks so much!

                    Hey, it's worth about twelve bucks. Warmed in the oven and on a trivet with a towel over the top on your table it'll keep your Thanksgiving bread rolls hot. After that you can get five bucks for it at a garage sale. It's a win/win ;>}
