    I have used the Mix ‘N Chop for years and I love it. It makes breaking up any ground meat as it browns SO much easier. I had an old paring knife that was discontinued. As soon as I saw this new set of four, I ordered it. They are wonderful!

    • Linda o’Connell December 31, 2018 at 10:14 am #

      Barbara, love the Mix N’ Chop! Also great for breaking up tomatoes for sauces after freezing them. I use it too for decorating sugar cookies, a quick, gentle press, sprinkle with colored sugars and voila!

  2. Mike tanguay December 31, 2018 at 9:56 am #

    Saves me a lot of time when freezing stuff from garden. A must have for sure.

  3. Candy Fitzpatrick December 31, 2018 at 10:08 am #

    I love the food chopper – it just makes getting things cut up so much quicker…and like they say – no more dripping eyes from the onions!!

  4. alice Sisson December 31, 2018 at 10:20 am #

    I could not imagine not having a Mix’n Chop. The Food chopper is in constant use. It spends more time in the dishwasher than the cupboard. It is great for Nuts in Christmas cookies, or vegetables in a salad, soup, or sauce. The cook wear I have I love. Easy to clean and use.

  5. Marsha Hanzel December 31, 2018 at 10:50 am #

    My favorite has to be the half sheet pan because it is so usefull and a perfect size.

  6. Denise Krevonick December 31, 2018 at 11:31 am #

    Wow, how does one decide which Pampered Chef item you love the most. I love the chopper and use it all the time but I love the nonstick grill pan for making Panini sandwiches too! One item that I love is my Pampered Chef Consultant! Happy New Year!

  7. Margit December 31, 2018 at 11:49 am #

    The NEWEST Cookware is GERMAN MADE!!! You don’t see that often these days! My mom always brought kitchen products back home to the US after our summer visit to Oma in Germany. Now I know why! These pan are really well made and will last a life-time. They are life time guaranteed. WahooO!!

  8. Kim Spicer December 31, 2018 at 12:03 pm #

    The Snack Bar Maker is fantastic! Perfect for making snack bars for kids with allergies.

  9. Wendy Neus December 31, 2018 at 12:08 pm #

    I love the individual microwave pasta cooker. I’m on Weight Watchers so it is measured out when I cook it no going back for seconds.I even make GLUTEN free pasta in it.

  10. Gene Franques December 31, 2018 at 6:09 pm #

    Where do I start!!! Well, the 10” non stick frying pan is new to me and it works. Cleanup is so easy. I’ve had the food chopper for years. I’m on my second one. Can’t do without it. The microwave pasta cooker is a God Send. I am Mr. Pampered Chef in my kitchen. I already have my wish list put together for my next order. Cooking and cleaning is more enjoyable since I started using my Pampered Chef.

    what’s the difference between #1 and #3

    • Jennifer Adams January 19, 2019 at 8:17 pm #

      Not sure if anyone answered your question. #1 is Stainless Steel and #3 is non stick and a grill pan which is awesome for grilling in the winter and in the summer.

    I only have 2 of this list. I NEED a cookie sheet!

  13. Laurie Frere January 2, 2019 at 11:54 am #

    I keep hearing great things about the quick cooker! Sounds so fast and easy!

  14. Bettie Covington January 3, 2019 at 3:48 am #

    I feel so out of the loop! I haven’t seen the waffle maker or the pasta maker. Clearly, I need to have a party and make the bar snacks!

  15. Ginjer Clarke January 3, 2019 at 10:49 am #

    You know I am all about that snack bar maker and making my own chocolate bars now! So quick and yummy!

  16. CYNDI GARRISON February 2, 2019 at 3:03 pm #

    I have the Mix n’ Chop, Food Chopper Paring Knives (purchasing more!) and a couple of Half Sheet Pans. I love all of these products. Not a week goes by that I don’t use the Mix n’ Chop at least 2-3 times. The Food Chopper is so easy for chopping onions, nuts, chocolate, sturdy herbs and many other things, the paring knives are a must have that I am always reaching for, and the half sheet pans are so handy when you want to bake a small batch of cookies, roast a few veggies, dry roast a few nuts for a recipe, etc.

  17. Launa February 22, 2019 at 5:29 am #

    I don’t have any of these but I think my grandkids would love the pop sickle maker!

  18. Deborah March 8, 2019 at 12:20 pm #

    I love the snack bar maker and the half baking tray.

  19. Bernadette Atencio March 27, 2019 at 3:57 pm #

    Stainless steel pan. I own many copper pans and they all stick .

  20. Brenda June 11, 2019 at 4:35 pm #

    I have the food chopper & a few. Pairing knives. Love them!

    • Sunna Cash October 26, 2019 at 4:52 pm #

      I have my original Mix ‘N Chop from 2007! It’s used 4-5 times a wk. I did a book show once & had 14 ordered– obviously it’s my favorite item & I recommend it to everyone! Every show I’ve had, & I’ve had plenty for 10+ yrs, one or more has been purchased. I also like my food chopper.
