What is a Pampered Chef Consultant?

Have you ever said to yourself, “I LOVE Pampered Chef!” and then went on to tell everyone what products you love and how you use them? Why not monetize that by becoming a Pampered Chef consultant* yourself?

If you’re new to Pampered Chef and wondering about us…


Pampered Chef consultants bring people together and show them how the right tools and recipes make everyday cooking simpler, tastier, and more memorable, all while earning a meaningful income.  Did I mention you can receive health insurance and IRA benefits as well?


Build the life you love with the freedom you want. You choose your hours, your goals, and your personal journey. Plus, you decide how you want to earn your income: through cooking parties, virtual parties, individual sales, and more. When you love what you’re selling and sharing, it doesn’t feel like work. Stop wondering if it could be for you and start thinking about who your first few hosts will be.


How did I stumble upon Pampered Chef? Let’s rewind to 1998 when the Detroit Red Wings were the Stanley Cup Champions and Harrison Ford was People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive… I attended a cooking party with friend of mine. I sounded fun and I loved (and still do) anything for my kitchen. We had a great time at the party and I ordered 3 products… a springform pan, the ever-famous Flan Pan Set and a cutting board. My culinary journey had begun. Well, kind of.

About 9 months later I was downsized at my job. I knew I needed to add some side-hustle to make ends meet. While I was contemplating my options, I picked up the Pampered Chef catalog and decided to give it a try. My biggest concern was hitting sales quotas which I wasn’t a fan of. Thankfully, Pampered Chef’s are very low ($150/month). So I ordered my starter kit!

When I told my family and friends that I had become a consultant, they laughed because I couldn’t cook. At all. I was asked to bring cups to potlucks because everyone knew I could burn water.

The income I earned from Pampered Chef helped fill in the hole in my finances until I changed jobs and went into a corporate position. That job had me working 50-60 hours each week and Pampered Chef became my “fun” job! I was offered a position with a new company, which also meant a move 2000 miles across the country. I decided to take a little time off before starting my new position and went to Michigan to spend time with my parents.

Unfortunately, (or fortunately now that I can look back) in the 3 weeks between jobs, my new position was eliminated. I suddenly found myself unemployed and living with my parents! YIKES! I knew I needed to do something and decided to throw myself into my Pampered Chef business and in a few months, I was earning as much as I had been at my corporate job, but this time working about 15 hours each week vs. 50-60!

Now in my 20 years of being a consultant, I realize what a life saver this job is… both financially and offering the flexibility to work when and where I want. Whoever said, “You can’t have it all…”? I’m guessing they never experienced all that the Pampered Chef has to offer! And by the way, I have become an awesome cook!

So what do you think? Ready to give it a try? Okay… I’m sure you’re still not sure so I’ll make it even easier for you! It takes 2 things to get started… 1st, you’ll select your starter kit. They range $109-$249 in price. 2nd, find 4 friends to be your first hosts and set a date for a cooking party or virtual party. Yes, it’s really that easy!
