12 Gift Ideas For Moms Who Love to Cook (Or Bake!)

Does your mom love saving amazing casserole recipes on Pinterest®, experimenting with new ways to sneak zucchini or avocados into brownies, or making her famous blueberry muffins on Saturday mornings? This is the gift guide for her!

Give mom an elegant, contemporary dish that looks good in the kitchen or on the dining room table. Our fully glazed stoneware heats safely to 500°F (260°C), and makes the perfect dish for busy moms getting their weeknight mac and cheese or lasagna on the table.

Help mom get a fast, healthy protein boost for breakfast or any time. In minutes, she can make either a basic omelet or add in extras like veggies, cheese, or bacon. This egg cooker is also awesome for oatmeal, a quick chocolate cake, or a blueberry lemon muffin.

Does your mom make a lot of lasagna? Then our Scoop & Serve Spatula will be her new best friend. It has a nylon core and high sides, which lets her scoop everything from lasagna to cobblers while keeping each piece intact. It’s made of silicone and won’t scratch the bottom of her pans.

Cold brew coffee is smoother and richer than coffee that’s brewed in a traditional coffee maker. It’s also fantastic to have on hand as warm spring days turn into hot summer days. This Cold Brew Pitcher not only makes coffee exactly to your taste, but it also stores drinks for up to a week. If your mom isn’t a coffee drinker, the pitcher has an interchangeable insert for brewing tea, too!

This two-sided mat takes all the fuss out of spacing cookies on a baking sheet. One side fits small and medium-sized cookies, the other side works for spacing larger ones. No more watching cookies melt together into a mega cookie (well…that’s not always a bad thing!) or struggling to pop them off the cookie sheet.

This viral slicing tool will become your mom’s new best friend—trust us. She can slice soft fruits and veggies in seconds with this handy tool that’s perfect for prepping anything from mushrooms for stir-fry to strawberries for school lunches. 

South Carolina Living said it best: “Mom’s had a stressful day, and a glass of wine might just hit the spot. The last thing she needs is to struggle with a stubborn cork. Make it easy on her with the Pampered Chef Electric Wine Bottle Opener. A single button opens the bottle with ease, and the opener’s stand doubles as a foil cutter.”

The ultimate entertaining piece, especially for moms always on the go. This serving tray comes with two reversible cooling inserts that keep dips, salads, fruit, and veggies cool for 4-6 hours. Each insert has 12 wells for deviled eggs. Clear inner trays let mom customize her tray to whatever event she’s planning. Big, beautiful salad with no tray dividers—check. A veggie platter with homemade onion dip—check. A half veggie/half fruit tray—check. A whole tray of her crowd-pleasing deviled eggs—check. A burger bar toppings tray—check. Sky’s the limit.

With the Reusable Storage Bag Set, Mom can take meals and snacks with her whenever she’s on the go! Each bag is made with 100% silicone, so they’re reusable, resealable, and leakproof. And they come in four different sizes, so she’ll always have a bag ready for packing snacks or storing leftovers. She can also use the large sized bag in the Deluxe Multi Cooker to sous vide meat, veggies, and more

Not only are the batter bowls practical kitchen tools for under $25, but you can dress themup as sweet gift for Mother’s Day. Fill the Classic Batter Bowl or Small Batter Bowl with her favorite candies, or layer with ingredients for her favorite dessert or pancake mix. You can even make the recipe together as a family. The handle makes it easy to decorate with a ribbon—maybe tie on a Batter Scraper with a gift tag!

Mom will love celebrating every get-together and holiday with the Secret Center Cake Pan. Using a standard box cake mix, she can make a stunning cake with a hidden surprise inside. Add a filling (like sprinkles or hazelnut spread) to the entire cake or personalize each slice with something special like fruit or small chocolate candies. With this pan, Mom will impress every guest at the next backyard barbecue, birthday party, and baby shower she attends.

From her famous chocolate zucchini bread to her top-secret banana bread, this mini loaf pan lets Mom make six smaller portions at once, making it faster and easier for her to dish out treats for bake sales, brunch treats, or holiday gifts. Plus, the vintage blue enamel exterior gives the pan a hip vibe to make her smile every time she gets it out to bake.

    I am long time customer with just a comment for a product addition – I have VERY limited cupboard space, I can only fit 1 spice turn around in but I have more PC spices than it holds so I stack extra’s on top & around. I would love to see you develop another ring to set atop the outer ring of the current rack. If the center was left open, the tall bottles of spice would be there, then the 2nd ring could set atop the small bottles but allow a 2nd layer that could be lifted up or off the rack as needed. That way I could keep my many spices from falling out when I am searching for one or just turning the rack. Would make my cooking more enjoyable!

      That is a great idea! I will pass it on!

      I am commenting on the parchment paper
      It is nearly impossible to take off of the roll because of the no cutting edge……

      Never will buy again…..

      I love my old spice turnabout we used to have and found it easy to find and fits not just PC spices. We will certainly add the suggestion back to the home office

    Love love love my batter bowls. I use them all the time for also storing leftover soup etc.

    • Candace Kirkham April 23, 2016 at 3:44 pm #

      Those are fabulous! I love them as well! Have you ever tried the leak proof glass containers? My husband bought me one as a gift because I eat leftovers and salads a lot. They keep everything fresh for the longest time!

    I have most of these items in my kitchen and I love all of them. I’m adding the batter mixing bowl and the rigid baker to my wish list.

    Could you please come up with a mini cheesecake pan I have many recipes for little cheesecakes but no pan. Love my pampered chef products!

    • Cheryl Harding April 18, 2021 at 10:21 am #

      Hey Kathy — I know you commented in 2016 but wanted to say that if you haven’t gotten a Cheesecake pan we now have one! It is an accessory with the Quick Cooker and makes our Cheesecake recipe is over the moon delicious!!

    • Teresa Amalfitano May 1, 2022 at 10:38 am #

      Hi Kathy, PC now offers a Silicone Egg Bites Mold which is perfect for mini cheesecakes! You should give it a try!

    I was the first pampered chef in staten island in 1992. I still have and use everything from back then. My favorite are my stones

    • Michele McKay April 27, 2016 at 12:56 am #

      The stones are so wonderful! I have been coming up with reasons to cook with them and my food always comes out perfect!

    Would love to see the stoneware 4x loaf pan come back, especially nearer the holidays. I have had several requests for it for folks that like to bake for people but prefer the smaller loaves instead of the large loaf.

    • Erica May 28, 2023 at 11:55 pm #

      Yes!! I love the 4x loaf pan! So much easier than making 1 big loaf pan that is always not done in the middle!

    I purchased the large and small batter bowls a few years ago and loved them. I purchased another set and the “new design” is HORRIBLE. The handles are too small, the lids are ill fitting and the glass is cheap. Wish I hadn’t given away my old set. I also purchased the large cutting board with the “juice catcher” and it warped..but sadly it is now outside the one year warranty. Used to love pampered chef but items are now becoming poorly made. Sad.

    I used a bundt pan to bake a cake. the cake stuck, how do I avoid this in the future, or do I just need to get rid of the pampered chef pan.
