Cooking with the Right Tools!
Yes, cooking with the right tools really does make your meals much easier, tastier and healthier! I consider Pampered Chef to be the right tools you should have in your kitchen! I have used Pampered Chef for over 20 years and decided I would become a consultant to share with others how great their products really are and offer an easy way to buy Pampered Chef Online!
I am here to say that I have used their products and their products really stand the test of time. I haven’t had one piece break, chip, or stop working! But if for some reason they do, they come with a lifetime warranty so just get in touch with the person you bought the products from (hopefully me) or with the company and they’ll send you a new one! What other company will do that for you?
You may be thinking that these great products must be expensive, but many are $20 or less. Even the more expensive items are well worth the price with the lifetime warranty. The company is always upgrading and adding new products! Here are a few of my favorites that I can’t be without in my kitchen:
Stoneware Bakeware – The stoneware is the number #1 reason I began using Pampered Chef. The casserole stoneware is fantastic! The unglazed, non-stick surface gives you perfect results every time. Sides and bottoms don’t burn! I have casserole pans and loaf pans I use for making bread. I love their deep dish pie plate, it makes wonderful pies and the bottom crust is so tender. Their casserole dishes come in a huge variety of sizes and often these bakers double as being my cake pans! I love their covered bakers for casseroles. If you want to make a casserole ahead of time? No problem. The stoneware goes right from the fridge or freezer into the oven. Check out just some of their stoneware selection in this video!
Stoneware Large Bar Pan – Perfect for cookies and appetizers, this cookie sheet is nice and big so you can fit extra goodies on it. You don’t need to preheat the oven ahead of time and it retains heat so you can use it as a food warmer as well. Plus, any moisture from your food is drawn away so it leaves everything nice and crispy. We love the this pan for broiling and baking fish too!! It cooks it to perfection! We also use this pan to roast veggies, it’s a wonderful way to keep your veggies tender and moist while you are roasting them. This stoneware is amazing.
Splatter Screen – My husband can’t use a fry pan without a splatter screen! OMG he makes a mess and this screen is amazing. He often cooks fish on the stovetop and I am so thankful for a splatter screen, it makes clean up so much easier. This screen covers a 10 – 12″ skillet, and has a hinged lid so you can easily lift just one side to stir your food. It allows steam to escape also.
Brownie Pan – I don’t know about you but I love the opportunity to bake up little square treats. I get tired of my cupcake pan! With this brownie pan I can make individual brownies and then switch to cornbread squares! It can also be used to make individual servings of quiche or meatloaf! You can make mini pizzas or appetizers. They pop out after cooked with ease! It’s a fun baking pan to have on hand! Check out this recipe!
Veggie Spiralizer – If you’re interested in trying out the new craze of veggie “noodles”, this is the best spiralizer on the market. With 3 different blades, you make different size veggie noodles. When you’re done, it goes right in the dishwasher. Plus, you can even get a free eBook of recipes and tips to use with it! Check the video out below:
Make & Take Mason Jar Set – This is a perfect combo for a meal on–the-go. Make your favorite salad or snack, pack it in this 4-cup jar, and you’re ready! Fork and spoon are included and everything fits together for easy storage. So easy for lunches, picnics or road trips.
Garlic Peeler and Slicer Set – I love cooking with fresh garlic but hate hate hate having to use my fingers to chop it and get garlicky fingers and hands. I know it comes in jars but I love the fresh taste of the clove! The Garlic Peeler & Slicer Set lets you peel and slice garlic instantly, without touching raw garlic! How cool is that? All you have to do is pop a few cloves into the peeler and roll it over a hard surface. Voila, the peels come off like magic! Put the peeled cloves into the slicer and twist to create perfectly even, thin slices of garlic. My kind of easy!
Mix ‘N Chop – This nifty hand held tool, uses its pinwheel shape to easily chop your food and easily get into the corners of your pan. If you make tacos, chili or spaghetti sauce with meat, using cooking skillets full of ground meat, then you need a Mix ‘N Chop. It lets you chop and crumble food directly in your cookware, and it won’t scratch even your nonstick pans. When the meat is cooked and crumbled, you can mix in sauces and seasonings quickly. And like most Pampered Chef products, it has multiple uses. It’s great for chopping and mixing potato salad and egg salad too.
Can Strainer – It may seem silly to add this little thing to the list, but it is amazing. No need to dirty and wash a colander for canned fruits, veggies and beans. Plus, it’s awesome for canned tuna or chicken. No more pressing the lid down to drain all the water.
Herb Stripper & Herb Mill – These are two new products that just came out this month and are on my list of next to get! I love using fresh herbs and grow what I can here at home. It will be wonderful to use the Herb Stripper to pull through the stem and voowela…have fresh herbs! The Herb Mill minces fresh herbs for your favorite recipes. It uses a ceramic ball that pushes the herbs into plastic blades without bruising or crushing the herbs. I love serving fresh herbs atop a finished meal, not just for garnish but for taste!
Pampered Chef offers so many great options for Bakeware, Cooking Tools, Cookware, Cutlery, Stoneware, Outdoor products and even a Kids line of bakeware and so much more! It’s really hard to narrow down what I like to just a few, but these have made my “must have” list for my kitchen. This month they came out with so many NEW products! The Indoor/Outdoor Grill is really a great new way to have fun! Check out the new products below:
Pampered Chef is a great company for people who want to work for themselves either full-time or just to make a few extra bucks or earn FREE products! BUT if you don’t want to make extra money, and you love cooking and entertaining, you’re going to love their products!
