I’ve been a fan of Pampered Chef for as long as I can remember. I get it honestly, as my mom has been a huge Pampered Chef fan since I was a kid. When I got engaged, Mom was the one who helped me start my own collection of Pampered Chef products. And since Matthew and I got married, our collection has grown considerably over the years, each of us having our own favorite products that we use often.
A few years ago, my mom started selling Pampered Chef and this week I'm so happy to be hosting a Pampered Chef party for her. While I can't have y'all at my house for a party, we are going to do it virtually.
My parents divorced a few years ago and Pampered Chef has been such a blessing to her – both financially and in connecting her with other women. I love supporting her in this way. If you live in the greater Milwaukee area, she would love to host a party for you!
I also wanted to also share with you our family's 10 favorite products. Between Matthew and I—because we both love cooking/baking—we use multiple Pampered Chef items every single day.
I would be so grateful for you to click here to shop and order a few items for your kitchen. I know you will LOVE them. The party closes on Wednesday, February 27, so you will get your items in early March, perfect as we go into spring and Easter.
Here’s a list of our 10 favorite Pampered Chef MUST HAVE products:
1) Garlic press
Though we’re not garlic fanatics, garlic is one of our go-to items for adding flavor to soups, sauces, or crockpot recipes. For years, whenever we needed garlic, I always purchased those tiny jars of minced garlic in olive oil. But my mom introduced me to Pampered Chef’s garlic press and that little item changed our life in the kitchen. I had no idea how different, how better freshly minced garlic is compared to what you buy in a jar.
2) Cutting boards
Whether we’re cutting meats or veggies or baking something yummy, we are always using our Pampered Chef cutting boards. Available in a variety of sizes, cutting boards from Pampered Chef come with a rubbery edge that keeps the board from moving around or slipping from under you while you’re cutting. When we’re finished, we simply slide them into the dishwasher for cleaning.
3) Stoneware Collection
Few things in our kitchen get used more often than the items in our Pampered Chef stoneware collection. For baking biscuits or breads or cookies or chicken nuggets, if it’s going in the oven, chances are we’re using our stoneware. We just love it. And while using a stone takes a little getting used to, the more you use it, the more you’ll fall in love!
4) Manual food processor
The manual food processor is most definitely my husband’s favorite Pampered Chef item! He loves it it because not only can you process veggies, grains, nuts, and other food items, it’s easy to clean, put away, and store. Not since Pampered Chef’s veggie chopper released has Matthew used a product more often when cooking.
5) Non-stick frying pan
We’ve all used non-stick frying pans. And usually, even when it’s one of the cheap brands you buy at Walmart or Target, you love your non-stick pan for a season. And then your affection for the pan starts to fade. Until you hate it. Well, that’s not what happens when you buy a non-stick pan from Pampered Chef—you never stop loving it because it’s durable, maintains its non-stick finish, and cooks everything evenly. You’ll love it!
6) Veggie slicer
Pampered Chef is known for taking a well known and commonly used item and revolutionizing it’s functionality, making it better, safer, or ridding it of its annoyances. Well, that’s exactly what they did with the mandolin-styled veggie slicer. What was once a clumsy and semi-unsafe kitchen tool with seemingly too many moving parts is now a safer, easy-to-use three-sized veggie slicer with only 2 parts. It not only remains sharp, it’s also easy to clean.
7) Pizza and crust cutter
If you have kids, chances are pretty good that you prepare a lot of frozen pizzas. We use our Pampered Chef pizza and crust slicer way more often than I would like. But we love it. You will, too.
8) Microwave popcorn maker
This amazing invention will change your life! As you know, microwave popcorn is terribly unhealthy, both for your waistline and, because of the chemicals they put inside those bags, for overall body’s wellness. Well, the Pampered Chef microwave popcorn maker puts you in charge of what you put in your popcorn and ultimately what you put in your body, too. It’s easy to use, fun for the kids to prepare, and you’ll actually remember what real popcorn tastes like again.
9) Ice cream scoop
Whatever Pampered Chef puts inside its ice cream scoop, it’s amazing. You’ll never need or have to buy another ice cream scoop again. Plus, you’ll love its ability to dip even the hardest, most frozen of ice cream.
10) Seasoning mixes
You might not think of Pampered Chef when it comes to buying items for your spice rack, but once you experience their wide variety of seasoned mixes, you’ll keep going back to them again and again. While nothing replaces fresh herbs and spices, the Pampered Chef collection of seasonings comes pretty darn close. Matthew swears that Pampered Chef’s “Italian Seasoning Mix” makes his homemade soups taste better. And he loves their “Asian Seasoning Mix,” too. They also have a great variety of rubs, too, if you’re into grilling or smoking meat.
