4 Things you NEED in your kitchen

I’ve made it no secret around here that I LOVE my deep covered baker from Pampered Chef. I bought it back in February at the first PC party I’d been too, and I’m seriously hooked. By the way, I don’t sell PC and I’m not helping anyone who does, I just REALLY love their products. The coveredbaker is definitely a pricey item, but I think it’s well worth it if you’re going to use it a lot, and we do!

It can go in the microwave OR the oven, and I’ve made everything from chili, to pasta, to desserts in this thing! You can’t go wrong, seriously. At the party I attended, she gave us a free cookbook specific to the covered baker with HUNDREDS of recipes for it. I’ve only just scratched the surface of what this bad boy can do ;)

Just last week I attended another PC party (wow, they are dangerous!) and added 3 great “basics” to my kitchen. Honestly, it’s embarrassing I didn’t have these already- but I’m so glad I do now!

First up were the Bamboo Serving Tongs. Let me just say--- it was time to stop using our ice bucket tongs are salad tongs. Yep. Moving on….. We needed a nice set to serve salads, pastas or really just about anything. They can also come apart if you need to use them separately, very cool!
Something else I decided to purchase –especially after I  saw the price tag—was the Small Micro-Cooker, for just $8.50!!! We eat a ton of vegetables and this is a perfect, 1-quart size that we will use a lot. It had a vented lid which doubles as a strainer. So handy!
I also bought a large serving spatula. We’ve got the “normal” spatulas, but this one is SO MUCH nicer. It’s got sharp edges which is perfect for getting a nice cut when serving lasagna, pizza, brownies, etc!

So- are these items you have in your kitchen? Or want to have? Any other Pampered Chef fans out there?! I really do believe in the quality of their stuff. I have other items that are years and years old that still work perfectly!! Plus, many of their products come with 3-year warranties, some even have lifetime warranties!

  8. I have never attended a PC party, but I am sure I would LOVE it!! Similar to the covered baker, I could not live without my Dutch Oven. I got Giada's at Target and I use it all the time. I love that it goes from stove to oven, no problem! Love those tongs. We don't have nice ones either...I love kitchen stuff :)

  12. Oh PC is very dangerous! But I don't cook enough to justify getting some of the "bigger" items. ;(. I do LOVE my PC spatulas though.
    Have a great day!
