Pampered Chef Must Haves?

My cousin's wife is hosting an online Pampered Chef party. Any must haves? I don't want to spend a lot, but thought I'd be nice and make a small order.

It has been a few years since I bought something from PC. I still have the pizza cutter and use it often. It is wonderful. I also like the little scoops for batter or cookie dough. I have 3 sizes of those.

I had a pizza cutter that I accidentally threw away in a pizza box. I was just talking about how much I miss it.

I love their rubber spatulas, pricy but worth it. If you like to do banana bread type things, I love their loaf pan - haven't overbaked one yet! I like the scoops and measuring cup others posted about above. I love their cheese grater as well.

I love the glass mixing bowl with cover, pizza stone, paring knives, and brownie pan ( makes small rectangle brownies in one pan). I also love the chopper thing but I canít remember the name of it. You canít go wrong with anything from Pampered Chef.

I love my whisk and puffy waffle maker. I also use the hamburger chopper thing every week, multiple times a week. I just got the tortilla keeper and will be using it this weekend.

Small stone that fits the toaster oven
It reheats leftover pizza and French fries nicely.

I love my 9x13 stone baker, food chopper, paring knives, pizza cutter, stone loaf pan and really I love anything. I also love my chicken cook pan, it is like a fry pan with high sides. Have fun shopping. Don't forget to look at the cook books!

I have 5 of the mini spatulas. I kinda like them.

And I like the thing that breaks up ground meat.

I love many that others do... the big and small steamer, the whisks, the small spatula, the liquid /solid measuring cup, the melon baller, the pineapple cutter, and the can opener. I know I'm finishing some things, but I use a lot!

The mix 'n scraper rubber spatula is my favorite! I use my small one all the time and should buy another. The mini serving spatula is my second favorite thing.

Had to add: the small slotted turner and the teak wooden spatula (flat edge makes it nice for stirring, scrapping, and de-chunking hamburger.

I do like a lot of their products, but you can get very similar things now at "regular" stores.

I love the gadget that crumbles up ground beef in the skillet. I think another poster says itís the mix & chop. The microwave steamer is great too.

Mini spatula

Not sure of the name , but the utensil set. It varies, I think, but has spatula, large serving spoon, slotted spoon, smaller spatula, tongs, whisk. I bought 2 at different times, and 20 years later, they are still going strong.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the mini-whisks. I own 4!

Rubber spatulas are so well made! Again, mine are 20 years old and still using.

A little pricey, but their apple peeler/slicer/corer is THE BEST!! So well made, and works way better than any other Iíve found. (I can homemade chunky applesauce and use it to prep 4 cases of apples each fall.)

The Mix-n-Chop (the thing that breaks up meat/frozen veggies/etc.)
Small serving spatulas
Mix -n- Scrape spatulas - regular and mini - my favorite cooking tool
batter bowls
Micro cookers (great for microwave cooking)
Any of the baking stones
Chopper

(My mom used to see it, so I have quite a few pieces.)

Thank you! There were a couple of things I peeked at and wasn't sure about, but you've convinced me. The only thing ya'll didn't help with is keeping this order small!

I'm a fan of the microwave saucepans, if they still make them. They're in 2 sizes and come with vented lids for steaming food. The small size has a handle and is the perfect size for heating a can of soup and the larger one can steam vegetables and make oatmeal without boiling over.

There is one Pampered Chef product that I just absolutely love. We have 6-7 of them: the All-Purpose Spreader. We don't use anything else for spreading butter, jelly, peanut butter, etc., because we love it. Plus, it's only $6ish, so you can support your cousin's wife and get something useful without spending a ton of cash!
