10 Favorite New Pampered Chef Products of 2021

What were the top stand-out products from Pampered Chef in 2021? Well, thanks to online reviews, social media posts, and virtual chitchat at Pampered Chef parties, we know which products were the best of the best this past year.

 

Many food habits we adopted in 2020 carried over into this year, but cooking fatigue has set in. And, with cooking burnout ever-present, we saw customers looking for new ways to prep and cook more efficiently while keeping the creativity flowing.

 

With all that in mind, here are the top new Pampered Chef products of 2021.

People are still cooking more at home but looking to get more efficient with their food prep and save time. That’s why our Flex+ Multi-Prep Set was such a fan favorite: It’s a cordless all-in-one immersion blender, 6-cup (1.5-L) food processor, and hand mixer system. “I haven’t touched my countertop food processor since I got [the Flex+],” said FMJ from Maryland. “It makes such quick work of everything.”

Since we launched this timesaving slicer and dicer, fans have called it a game-changer for how quickly it slices fruits, preps veggies, and cuts homemade French fries. “The mandoline makes fast work of slicing 3 pounds of carrots. It cleans up fast and easy and stores away nicely,” said Nancy from Nebraska.

With all the home cooking, people needed high-quality cooking supplies that would hold up to daily use. This trend, combined with the need for multi-functional kitchen tools, made the Enameled Cast Iron Skillet With Lid a big hit. It can braise, bake, saute, simmer, or roast, and the self-basting lid adds moisture back into whatever you’re cooking. “I’ve had fantastic results with meat, fish, and veggies,” said Tom from New York. “This has quickly become one of my most used cookware pieces.”

It’s no surprise with the popularity of our do-it-all enameled cast iron skillet that people also had lots of love for this big, deep pan from the same collection. Kim from Saskatchewan, Canada, said it’s, “Great for lasagna, or apple crisp, as we always double the recipe! Looks a good size for a decent turkey, too!”

The need to celebrate came back in a big way, but individual snacks and desserts took over party menus, so everyone could safely enjoy important milestones. Homemade donut holes are a perfect match for this trend, and our community found tons of ways to use this pan. From cake pops and protein snacks to meatballs and “cornbread bombs” for soup, this pan made celebrating together more fun.

This popular muffin pan can make your average treats super-sized or make bigger meals miniaturized depending on what you want. Our customers made big pumpkin muffins and Carmel Latte Bread muffins. But they also made personalized cheesecakes, apple pies, and birthday cakes because gone are the days of blowing out candles on one big cake

There’s a lot to love since this flexible grill and griddle and its add-on waffle plates because it takes care of family-sized meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. “It replaced three appliances: Our griddle for pancakes, our panini press, and our waffle maker,” said Catherine from Texas. “This is used every day in our family of seven, and there is no longer a line for lunch!

Last year was the year of the Deluxe Air Fryer. They flew out of our distribution center! So, it’s no surprise this nifty air fryer accessory also took off. With the popularity of more natural, homemade treats, making all-natural fruit snacks fueled our community’s creativity and desire to snack smarter.

It was important to shake up cooking routines with new flavors without extra effort. That’s why new pantry flavors like Everything but the Pizza™ Seasoning and Everything Bagel Seasoning kept people coming back for more. And it doesn’t get easier than our Guacamole Mix:  Add 1 tbsp (45 mL) of our mix to one mashed avocado and done! It makes a great gift with the Avocado Tool.

This clever tool was another well-reviewed winner this year. We loved how it saved time and reduced messes when pitting cherries, whether you were pitting pounds of cherries for pies, jams, or feeding fruit-hungry children. This pitter is all about speed and ease.

Okay, we’re giving this one an honorary new product status. After selling out fast in 2020, our Stoneware made with the StoneFusion formula came back in stock in 2021, and we fell in love with it all over again. It’s our most durable stoneware yet. It’s dishwasher-safe, can be preheated, and goes under the broiler. This stoneware helps you bake perfect crusts on our Pizza Stone, juicy meat on a Stone Bar Pan, and evenly brown baked goods made on our Rectangle Stones. It’s no wonder everyone wanted one. “I had gotten bored with chain-restaurant pizza. [The Pizza Stone] makes it easy to cook pizza my way, whenever I want,” said Melissa from Florida

    • Sara Anderson November 30, 2021 at 2:13 pm #

      I miss the stoneware bundt pan! All the stones are great, though!!!!

      • Teresa Smiley March 18, 2022 at 1:54 pm #

        I broke mine and the round stone baker! 😥
        I love to shop thrift stores and Goodwill for bakeware and dishes. I found a PC stone bundt cake pan and the square stone baker. I could not believe someone would get rid of them!!

    • Deb Dean December 7, 2021 at 5:59 pm #

      Cherry and Olive pitter would be handy. I could stuff my own blue cheese olives!

      • Margaret Loots January 6, 2022 at 7:46 pm #

      • Teresa Smiley March 18, 2022 at 1:55 pm #

    • Carmen January 19, 2022 at 4:21 pm #

      I love my stoneware bundt pan too – I really love the mini one that has like 6 mini bundt cake spots for it! My only.complaint is that they are a bit heavy to flip lol but they are awesome! Of my stoneware (I have like almost every one of the older versions – the stoneware bar pans I probably use the most – big one in the oven and smaller one in the toaster/convection oven!

      • Angela February 19, 2022 at 2:50 pm #

        Yes! I love mine too 🤗
        I use it to make mini apple cakes at Christmastime to pass out as gifts to my neighbors.

    I had a customer asking me about the Stoneware Bundt Pan. Seems to be a big hit. Maybe it can come back in the new stoneware collection that is dishwasher safe!!

    • Teresa N Click January 4, 2022 at 6:43 am #

      I love the enamel cast iron . It is very easy to clean and make the dish that is cooked in it so much better than glass bake ware. Love it.

  3. Karen December 5, 2021 at 11:06 am #

    I love my PC pans and the lifetime warranty.

  4. Judy McGrath December 6, 2021 at 9:18 pm #

  8. Cory McCollam December 31, 2021 at 2:29 pm #

    The best items to me are the RockCrock items and the warmer. And also love the knives and seasonings.

  9. Lori Haizel January 2, 2022 at 8:07 am #

    I’ve Had customers ask for the stoneware bundt pan.

  10. Barbara Benson January 5, 2022 at 8:00 am #

    I love the 1 qt and 2 qt enamel cast iron. Food cooks evenly and so easy to clean. My all time favorite is the RockCrock with slow cooker stand. I named it Rocky lol

  11. Christine A Felker-Godlaski January 5, 2022 at 8:05 am #

    I love how the stoneware cooks all the food evenly

  12. Margaret Loots January 6, 2022 at 7:48 pm #

    The Deluxe Grill & Griddle and the Rapid Prep Mandolin are my favorites!

  13. Wendy January 7, 2022 at 11:07 am #

    RockCrock is great. I would recommend the cheese knife as well.

  14. Rita Harrell January 7, 2022 at 8:56 pm #

    I, Hands Down, LOVE the stones!! Before the rectangular bar pan, my refrigerated “slice and bake” cookies were 100% burnt underneath. With the stone, I am now Better than Betty Crocker and considered a great baker!!

    • Teresa Smiley March 18, 2022 at 1:59 pm #

      I love my bar pan to!! It’s the only way to cook bacon!! Approx 20-25 minutes, depends on how you like your bacon cooked at 450. I hate the greasy mess frying bacon. Barpan solved that problem!!

  15. Janice January 9, 2022 at 7:28 pm #

    I love all my Pampered Chef Stoneware Bar Pans. Thinking the Grill and Griddle would look real nice in my kitchen.

  16. Carletta Edmonds January 15, 2022 at 1:20 pm #

    Wow didn’t know there use to be a Stoneware Bundt Pan will they be bringing that back???

  17. Kathy Q Archambeau January 15, 2022 at 7:09 pm #

    I love all my stoneware pieces!

  18. Jacklyn Krzyzaniak January 24, 2022 at 7:27 pm #

    Love your products. I have a suggestion for a new and needed tool.
    We need a kitchen auger to pierce lettuce and cabbage heads. A knife is not a good tool for this operation.

  19. CLAUDETTE STEVENSON January 27, 2022 at 9:36 am #

    i would like recipes for the micro steamer cookers

  20. Sher February 6, 2022 at 1:11 pm #

    I LOVE the stoneware. Use it all the time. Not many pieces I don’t have. And the cherry pitter is great

  21. Angela LaPrise February 19, 2022 at 2:53 pm #

    The Air Fryer gets the most use in my home. I’ve replaced both my toaster and toaster oven, and gained the air fry option to boot! It fits nicely in the tiny space of counter next to my oven, and gets used way more often than the oven too…without heating up my kitchen! 🤩
