Pampered Chef – Holiday Gift Guide

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…The Pampered Chef is known across the country as a company with high quality, reliable products for those of us ‘foodies’. Apart from appliances, if you can imagine it in your kitchen, chances are they make it. Their products are built to last and to make life easier.

Not only am I featuring Pampered Chef today, but I am also featuring Jodie Skinner, a Pampered Chef representative located in Winnipeg. With the wonderful internet these days, distance doesn’t matter if you want to place an order, and if you are located in Winnipeg, drop her a line to host a party. If had a few of these parties in the past, and you can get some really great products for free to ask your friends to come shopping at your place.

Parties are perfect for people moving out on their own, getting married, or for anyone who just wants to build their kitchen collection.

I received a Food Chopper and some Sweet Mocha Hazelnut Sprinkles to review.

I used the Food Chopper the first night I got it and I haven’t put it down. My favorite item to chop is onions. I have a food processor that I next to never use because I hate the clean up. This chopper works wonders, it is compact and each piece comes apart so that it can go right from chopping in to the top rack in my dishwasher and I don’t deal with onion smell on my hands.

A few pushes on the chopper will get you chopped onions, and the more you chop after that, the finer the onions become. You can chop anything that needs to be chopped in this. Nuts, peppers, chocolate, you name it. The blades are strong and solid. A great gift to give for anyone who loves to cook, or for those that don’t, it will make things a little easier.

The Pampered Chef also sells pantry items. Nice sauces, spices and sweets to further compliment many dishes. The Sweet Mocha Hazelnut Sprinkles make a great addition to ice cream. This is perfect for my family because I love mocha-flavoured, but my husband doesn’t so we can share vanilla ice cream and I can add the ‘coffee’ flavour to mine.

I’ve tried numerous Pampered Chef products in the past. In my opinion, they sell the best baking/cooking stones and I haven’t come across an item from them that I haven’t loved. Take a look through their products to complete your Christmas shopping list and contact Jodie if you are interested in hosting a party.

    I have always wanted the apple peeler/corer/slicer! I also need a baking stone so I might get that as well :)

    Thanks so much for this article. I have not seen some of the new items and love them. Too much I would love to have but I definitely would like a couple bamboo bowls, bamboo serving tongs, the adjustable grater and the adjustable measuring spoons. I have quite a few pampered chef pieces and love every one of them. Pampered Chef makes awesome products for the everyday cook.
