4 Must-Have Products for Fall

The secret to putting comfort food on the table night after night, year after year, is dependable cookware. In the fall, you’re probably making hearty, comfort food or cooking for a large crowd. If that’s the case, you need great pieces of cookware that are durable and will last a long time. Here are four kitchen products that will be your go-to pots and pans.

1. Pressure Cooker

Forgot to take the chicken out of the freezer? Got home from work late? That’s OK, dinner can be ready in no time with a pressure cooker. In fact, it cooks food up to 70 percent faster than the oven or stovetop. A pressure cooker takes the guesswork out of cooking because of the multiple preprogrammed settings for everything from meat, rice, and beans to desserts.

2. Stainless Steel Nonstick Skillet

A stainless steel nonstick skillet has the best features of stainless steel and nonstick cookware. It’s great for searing meat and developing fond, which is the browned, caramelized bits stuck to the bottom of the pan after cooking. The best part about a stainless steel nonstick skillet is the cleanup—it’s as easy as nonstick cookware. This pan makes cooking easy—you can make great one-pot meals in under 30 minutes.

3. Slow Cooker

A slow cooker is a great one-pot meal maker. A small-time investment in the morning to prep dinner pays off in the evening when you can come home to a dish ready to eat. A slow cooker is perfect for families with busy schedules or when you want to save time on dinner. Plus, slow cookers are great for serving crowds.

4. Stoneware Baker

If you like to microwave your dinners, a microwaveable stoneware baker is a must-have for your kitchen. The natural clay in stoneware draws moisture away from food so baked goods turn out light and crispy and meat stays tender and juicy. This piece of cookware will give you plenty of options for recipes you can make in the microwave in less than 30 minutes.

She bought the steamer to use in her microwave and the first thing we made were pork chops and they turned out delicious !!

    The presentation of the four products is very attractive and are part of the best cookware made. I cook for one and I love my Rockcrok and deep covered bakers. I can cook a large portion of my favorite meal in the Rockcrok and put it in the freezer when I want to eat the same meal later. It’s great for main dishes, soups, and Desserts! What a versatile, easy-to-use product!! Fits my busy lifestyle perfectly.

    The all purpose pot and the entire Pampered Chef matching pots and pans are outstanding in quality, durability and value. I purchase a set many year ago when hosting a party and have add pieces over the years. They make it easy for anyone to cook in and be successful. And clean up is a breeze. I have yet to find another set of pots and pans that function as well and carry the same quality and value. You won’t be disappointed. Even when my husband left a dirty Mac and cheese pot that had dried over night in the sink without any water or rinsing – I was able to just wipe it right out! I can not say enough good things about this line. We had some high quality stainless steel that when my husband used it was a mess and frustrating for him. Never with these. Also use the Stonewear which is wonderful for cooking/baking with. And my latest edition was a RockCrok which I still have to tryout but have no worries. While it may seem pricey for some of the product- they have all been well worth it. They are durable and do what they say they will. Hosting a party is a great way to get a bunch of discounted items. Pampered Chef delivers! I love em!

    What happened to the All Purpose Pot? I love mine and so do many of my friends and family that visit. I love that my food isn’t getting lost in the abyss of a large stock pot. There’s plenty of room for a double-batch of stew or soup and I can still see everything. I also felt that it took less time to cook and heat evenly than in a stock pot. I’m sorry you don’t sell it anymore!
