Which Pampered Chef products and why?

(46 Posts)

Just that really. Been to one before, didn't buy anything due to price, going to one again next week. Persuade me to part with my money grin

Don't buy the stoneware products. They are overpriced and you can't put them in the dishwasher. The chopper thing is pretty good and so is the glass batter bowl, but bear in mind that the measurements are US and not imperial.

The best PC product I have ever bought is the bread knife. It is brilliant.

Thanks Bunbaker. They have 20% off stoneware at the moment, I was thinking of getting one of those round ones. Yes, I liked the chopper last time. I don't remember the batter bowl. I remember a pretty cool apple slicer?

Don't know if they still do them but a few years ago I bought a fab set of small glass/pyrex bowls with lids. They are used daily for putting bits in the fridge eg egg whites, half tins of beans, small amounts of left over sauce etc.

Went to PC party recently and got the mini bun tin and wooden dibber thingy that goes with it and big glass measuring bowl plus lid. Was hoping they'd be disappointing as quite pricey but they are bloody brilliant and now I want more PC stuff blush

A friend swears by the pizza stone. MIL got us some of the plastic/rubber spatulas years ago, and they are still going strong.

The ice cream scoop is good but beware you can't put in dishwasher

The only thing I ever brought was the apple corer/slicer. Its fantastic for kids lunch boxes. It is still going strong after seven years of constant use and would still take your finger off given half a chance wink

I bought the set of 2 measuring spoons (with the slidy thing to get half measures) and the microplane grater. Both fab.

The double hand whisk is amazing

The microwave vegetable plastic cooking bowl. I use mine daily for peas, carrots, broccoli etc. cooks carrots in 3 minutes,and doesn't wash out the taste.

I think it's all overpriced and gadgety. I did the same as you OP - didn't buy anything and now I'm a misery and don't go to parties (make other excuses but really it's because I think it's all crap).

I like their mini products, eg mini muffin trays, mini loaf pans.

Stoneware is awesome. You don't need a dishwasher with it confused
The oil sprayer
Mini muffin tray
Chopper is useful
Microplane grater

I had a party and got lots of freebies recently.

My friend does Pampered Chef so I've bought quite a few bits over the last couple of ears! Best buys have been stonewear, spatulas, apple wedger/corer and the griddle pan which costs a bomb but is fabulous. I recently bought a brownie tin which I use a lot and the batter bowl does get used. Don't buy a mango corer!

KateF Sun 20-Jan-13 10:33:37

ears=Years grin. Kids have bashed the y key on my laptop!

We've got their children's knifes, they cost £3 each a few years ago and are brill.

ChippyMinton Sun 20-Jan-13 11:07:11

microplane grater is the only thing worth buying, if you must get something.

CMP69 Sun 20-Jan-13 11:17:50

I have the large rond stoneware dish, the large black micro cooker (not the rice one), the skinny scraper. I have just ordered a garlic press, the small batter bowl and a pie plate. They are expensive, but I have had my original ones for about 6 years and use them every week without fail. (I also love a gadget for the kitchen blush)

The potato masher is fab... looks like it wont work but it does and is so easy to clean after.

Megsdaughter Sun 20-Jan-13 11:46:35

The stainless steel bowls with rubber bottoms, I use them all the time, and the small glass bowls.

The red kids knives are brill too.
