No Rules Cookware

Do you ever get tired of telling others to not use metal cooking utensils in your cookware? Do you audibly groan when you realize the coating on your cookware flakes off into your food? Have you had your cookware longer than five years? Does food stick to your pans? Do you hate cleaning it?

I’m so excited to introduce you to No Rules Cookware! And what’s even better?  I MEAN IT!

First though… why does having good cookware matter?

One big difference between expensive and inexpensive cookware comes down to the quality of the product’s materials and construction. You want to cook dishes evenly. Inexpensive cookware sets are notorious for uneven heat distribution, which results in dishes that are partially over or under cooked.

Many dishes require starting the recipe on the cooktop and then transferring to the oven. Inexpensive, low-quality cookware is often made with plastics and have handles that are not oven safe. Also, not all nonstick coatings are oven safe. Did you know that?

Good quality cookware will last you for 10-20 years, while a low-quality set may only last for 2-3 years.

Have I hit any nerves? That wasn’t my intention. I think it’s important to be educated on a product you’ll use daily. Think about it… you purchase a vehicle with safety in mind and you’re not even ingesting anything that results from it!

Enough of that.  Let’s move on to the fun!  Introducing Pampered Chef’s exclusive nonstick and stainless collections!


The nonstick collection contains seven new pieces, including a cookware set. The stainless nonstick has two pieces.

The nonstick is best for eggs, soups and stews, fish and delicate foods. The handles are removable for easy storage and they are dishwasher safe!  They are oven-safe and no, your metal utensils will not ruin them! I used to yell at my mom for stirring things using a fork!  I’m sure she’s happy she’ll never hear that from me again!

It’s constructed from cast aluminum alloy and has a 4-layer titanium reinforced coating. What does that mean? It means that in the rare circumstance the pans get scratched, you’d have to make it through 4 layers before hitting metal. Plus, it’s PFOA free. Did I mention that it comes with a lifetime guarantee?


The nonstick stainless is best for searing meats and making pan sauces. These are the pans I use in my kitchen daily. They are also dishwasher and oven safe. You can use any utensil in these pans and they are also PFOA free. If you have an induction cooktop, these are the pans for you! These also have a lifetime guarantee. They have a Tri-Ply construction including 18/10 stainless steel satin interior layer and a polished stainless 18/0 exterior layer.

How can you get your hands on these pans? There are two ways:

  1. Visit my website and place an order.
  2. Host a Pampered Chef live cooking party or virtual party and get it FREE, half-price or discounted.  Simply contact me here for more information.

Help Whip Cancer 2018

help-whip-cancer-03-may2018We all know someone affected by breast cancer.  16 years ago, a close friend of mine lost her life to the disease at the age of 33. That is just one of the reasons Pampered Chef’s Help Whip Cancer campaign is so personal to me.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Since 2007, breast cancer death rates have remained steady in women younger than 50, but have decreased in older women. The American Cancer Society believes this decrease is the result of early detection and increased awareness, as well as better treatments. Pampered Chef began its Help Whip Cancer campaign in May 2000 to raise funds to assist the American Cancer Society with breast cancer education and early detection programs. To increase our impact, we added our October campaign in 2008. Since the beginning of our Help Whip Cancer campaign, Pampered Chef consultants and customers have contributed more than $12 million to aid the American Cancer Society’s fight against breast cancer. More than 3.1 million breast cancer survivors are celebrating another birthday this year!

How can you help?  First, you can host a Help Whip Cancer Fund-Raiser! Up to 25% of the total sales will be contributed to the American Cancer Society for their breast cancer education and early detection programs. You and your friends can shop, try a delicious recipe, and make a big impact in the fight against breast cancer.  I’m available for live parties if you’re local to me in PA or we can do a virtual event via Social Media.  Simply comment here on this blog post and we’ll set it up!
