Now here's a new one on me. DH has been invited to a guys-only Pampered Chef football party, during which they will watch the game, eat the Pampered Chef stuff, and order things. Not sure if there'll be a stripper, but I'm pretty sure there will be beer involved.

(Pampered Chef is kind of like the old Tupperware parties.)

Since I've only been to one PC party in the last 30 years, what would folks recommend as must-haves? Yes, I know everything is overpriced and hyped, but we need a list, otherwise DH will bring home many drawer clutterers and space-taker-uppers.

TIA!

Their mix and chop tool is great as well as their silicone spatulas especially their mix"n scrapers. I like their large serving spatula as well. These things I use all the time and they have held up for years. I also have their stoneware bar pan (jelly roll size) that I use a lot too. The tools aren't all that expensive. Not cheap but reasonable for the good quality.

Thanks, Jabbur! Are the silicone spats one piece? This is looking pretty good so far!

Someone got clever. Okay, some men cook. But, most of these guys have no idea about this stuff. Dawg, you are a wise woman to give him a list.

Thanks, Taxy! I like this, it's like advance Christmas presents!

The guy who's running the show is apparently a good cook, according to DH.

I like their spatulas. It's the only thing I can identify that's from PC.


( this is a Very edited statement. I erased a bunch of irregular thoughts one need not want to read . I'd go for the beer, football and hope the demo's are limited to half-time. .)

OK, we're definitely going for the spatulas!

Thanks Bunny! I already have a set of microplanes and a scraper, may have to add the avocado thingy.

I have a Pampered Chef pocket thermometer that was inexpensive and works great!

Check out the catalog and give DH a list!
