Two months ago, a good friend of mine lost her home to a fire. Praise the Lord that Mandie and her husband, along with their two small children (three, if you count baby on the way…yay!) and their dog were away when the house became engulfed in flames.
Unfortunately, nobody in the neighborhood called the fire department and the house was left to burn until Mandie and her family returned home late that night to find the disaster in progress.
The home was a total loss. Thank goodness they had home owners insurance, but even with their coverage to help with the rebuilding process it has already proven to be a financial burden. Generous friends have pitched in to give the family clothes, toiletries, and some basic necessities, but there are still many things they will need in the coming months as they work on putting the pieces back together.
As I was brainstorming ways that I might be able to help, it occurred to me that Mandie is not only a hard working, homeschooling, stay-at-home mama, she’s also a Pampered Chef Consultant! I figured, what better way to help her earn a little extra money for her family than to host a virtual Pampered Chef party here with my always generous audience!
Perhaps some of you may be needing a kitchen item, a wedding or housewarming gift, a birthday present, or maybe even a jump start on Mother’s Day!
Now would be a GREAT time to make that purchase, and also be a blessing to a family in need.
Pampered Chef has a ton of awesome products for you to consider. Take a few of my favorites, for example…
Deep Dish Pie Plate – $35.00
Here’s a pie plate that is actually big enough to hold a meal fit for a large family in one dish! This 9″ stoneware deep dish pie plate holds a whopping 6 cups of filling, whether that be your favorite apple slices or a hearty chicken pie.
Easy Accent® Decorator – $24.00
I have one like this that I just LOVE. Makes cakes, pies, and cookies that look as good as the pros. I even use mine to stuff deviled eggs for a beautiful potluck presentation. A must-have for any mom who makes her children’s birthday cakes and cupcakes!
Deep Covered Baker- $85.00
This covered stoneware dish is perfect for baking juicy whole chickens and large pieces of choice meat. With its heat-proof lid, this baker could be a real money saver when used in place of baking with foil or poultry bags! All stones are oven-, microwave-, and freezer-friendly.
Food Chopper – $32.00
THE most popular Pampered Chef kitchen tool ever, the food chopper is another must-have for every kitchen. Especially if you’re like me and you cry like a baby every time you chop onions. I use my PC Food Chopper for dicing onions, mincing garlic, and for chopping nuts without the hassle.
Stainless Cookware 5-Piece Set – $345.00
If you’ve been looking for a safe, quality set of stainless steel cookware to replace your dangerous non-stick pots and pans, this is a great one to consider. It’s made of Tri-Ply Clad, a thick aluminum core between an interior layer of 18/10 stainless steel and an exterior layer of 18/0, for durability and faster, more even heating.
Bamboo Petite Snack Bowls – $25.00
These adorable bamboo snack bowls are perfect for finger foods or toppings to serve your guests. Personally, I love them for KIDS! Bamboo is harder and more durable than other hardwoods, making these bowls a wonderful, safe and sustainable option for serving your littles their snacks. They’d make a unique and cherished baby shower or toddler birthday gift idea!
Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer – $32.00
Makes apple pie filling a breeze! Just stick your apple on the end, and turn the handle. This handy kitchen tool peels, cores, and slices apples into thin rings, perfect for dehydrating or slicing for quick desserts.
Manual Food Processor – $49.00
Here’s an awesome piece of equipment for the non-electric, off-grid home- a powerful food processor that chops by hand! The more you pump, the finer it cuts. Holds up to 3 cups of food.
Herb Infuser – $9.50
Add fresh leaves of lemon balm or mint to your homemade lemonade, or toss in a handful of rosemary sprigs from the garden to your favorite soup or stew without having to pick out any leaves or stems! LOVE this products.
Mix ‘N Chop – $11.00
And Mandie’s #1 seller, the Mix ‘N Chop. Unique, beveled pinwheel blades efficiently chop and crumble foods for even cooking and seasoning. A handy tool for breaking up ground meat, even if it’s still partially frozen!
Of course, these are just a few of the many cool products Pampered Chef has created, so be sure to check out Mandie’s online store to see everything offered there!
Pampered Chef products all have at least 1 year warranties (except for Pampered Pantry seasonings and perishables.) And several items have Lifetime warranties, including the Cookware and Forged Cutlery.
Mandie can also offer replacement part service. If your item is still under warranty and is broken, she can get a new one for you. If it isn’t under warranty and has a broken part, she can usually get a replacement part for a few dollars.
