Pampered Chef was started by Doris Christopher in 1980. The company's founder and chairman was previously an educator, and home economist. She saw the need for professional-quality kitchen tools in the average kitchen. Through the use of in-home cooking demonstrations, Doris began promoting Pampered Chef. She capitalized on her knowledge of food preparation techniques and assembled an inventory of what she believed to be the most essential kitchen necessities.
Pampered Chef products include kitchenware, stoneware, bake ware, outdoor items, utensils, and state of the art knives. Pampered Chef also boasts bamboo utensils, cheese boards, baking pans of various shapes and sizes, sharpeners, skewers and tongs, measuring cups, grill tools, and other barbecue accessories. Their kitchenware category includes funnels, paring knives, tools, peelers, spoons, egg separators, cutters, garlic presses, and more.
