Doris Christopher in her home's basement founded The Pampered Chef in 1980. The company sold kitchenware at social events where a homemaker would demonstrate the items and sell them. The popularity of the products picked up during the late 1980s and 1990s.
The company had its global foothold expanded in the late 1990s, picking up markets in Canada, the UK, and Germany. Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway firm picked up the company in 2002. In 2014, Tracy Britt Cool was appointed as the company's CEO. Here are some facts about Pampered Chef
Pampered Chef makes it easy to get access to their products. We found that, in the MLM industry, often, clients could only get items through a consultant. There are three ways to get Pampered Chef products:
Pampered Chef parties can be beneficial to the host. Here are some of the perks that are associated with setting up a Pampered Chef Party:
The Pampered Chef also has some great deals for a consultant:
Consultants also pick up a good share of commissions for hosting parties. Here is the commission that you can make for hosting parties:
One of the things that we liked about Pampered Chef was the training that was provided by veteran consultants. Many senior consultants will provide in-person meetings on a weekly basis for new consultants.
Also, many of the consultants worked one-on-one with their new consultants in their area.
Another positive aspect of Pampered Chef was the opportunity to grow in the company in a sales position. There are five director positions with the company, and Senior Executive/National Directors can easily make upwards of six figures per year depending upon the sales in their respective regions.
New sales consultants are going to have a difficulty finding new leads due to the fact that Pampered Chef has been around for so long. Newer generations are not as interested in the products that Pampered Chef offers to customers.
Since Pampered Chef has been around for so long, there are some areas that are over-saturated with sales consultants. If a new sales consultant finds themselves in an over-saturated market, it may be extremely difficult to find new customers to sell to.
Love their products. As often as I can, I get all my kitchen products from them. They are super durable and very easy to take care of.
Love there pans have a few stone wear items but the half sheet and large pan was my most recent purchase had a medium sheet from the last party that I loved so much that I had to replace my other pans.
I love Pampered Chef's cooking products and like to use their cookbooks from easy to prepare recipes. They have a nice return policy if something doesn't work well and the party format is fun to get friends together to cook and eat.
I went to a friend's party and bought some kitchen stuff. There was a lot of assortment and cute things to buy. The price was higher than what I could find elsewhere so I never bought again.
Pampered Chef has the absolute best kitchen and cooking products. I was a consultant over 20 years ago and earned all of the stoneware and cookware (among other things) and they are all still going strong TO THIS DAY. I highly recommend Pampered Chef to everyone.
Pampered Chef is one of my favorite places to shop for kitchen items. They are high quality and last for a long time. The food chopper is probably my favorite product, but there are so many others that I use daily!
I love the Pampered Chef products. I don't love to cook but their stuff makes cooking easier for me. Love their rubber spatulas and have a bunch of different serving spatulas but my favorite is the cookie scoopers. Have 2 different sizes and use them both weekly.
I have a lot of pampered Chef products. I wish it was easier to find a consultant so that I could look through the catalog and order or replace some of my products. I do like the ones I’ve bought, especially the pizza stone. They are a bit pricey.
When I was engaged my in-laws threw me a pampered chef bridal shower so I got lots of kitchen necessities from there. I love it all! They are great quality and they have a good guarantee (3-5 years I believe) for each item. Some of my most favorite pampered chef things I own are my pizza stone (so amazing!), my Dutch oven pot, my liquid measuring cups, and my spatulas. My husband and I both enjoy cooking and baking so we are in the kitchen a lot and it’s nice to have good quality gadgets that I can count on to get the job done.
Love their products. Actually way better cookware than the run of the mill stuff you can buy from Walmart or other places.
I love their cooking products. I have several items in my kitchen that I use all the time and they have lasted forever. I use their spatulas, cooking microwave bowls, roller, and chopper. The chopper hasn't held up as well as everything else. The outside plastic doesn't hold up very well.
The quality of the products themselves is great. But the overriding reason this company is so good, is the Consultant's connection to their customer. Even if your Consultant is no longer in business, the company helps you directly. They have a fabulous Customer Service Dept. and they honor BEYOND the listed guarantee on products! It's like working with a really good relative if ever there is a problem! And their catalog shows 3 levels of business start-up cost options, and they are SUPER reasonable!!
I like their products and enjoy learning new recipes at their parties.
I really enjoy my pampered chef products! I think it ranks average among other brands though, nothing too special about their products, but they do work and last for a long time.
I have been impressed by their products, but get annoyed by the pushy sales people.
Having my party virtually throught Facebook verses in my home has been phenomenal I am able to invite all of my friends regardless of where they live
Constantly very very pushy ans rude over not responding a txt at 10 pm . Changing recepi few times and asking for ingredients that were not in the initial list. Refusing to let me cancel the party. No boundaries what so ever
I have ordered Pampered Chef several times in the last few years. I absolutely love the product and my consultant. She always gives her customers a heads up when outlet sales are happening and when new product is dropping in! Thank you Carrie Blake for being an awesome consultant and now friend!!
I have been on both the customer and consultant side of Pampered Chef. They sell some of the most amazing kitchen products on the market that last forever! The key is finding a good consultant and holding on tight to him/her. The personalized service makes it even better.
