Show appreciation to the cooks in your life this holiday season with gifts they’ll love and use everyday. Your relative who never needs help for holiday meals, your friend who spends hours in the kitchen prepping for their dinner parties, and even your closest budding young chef deserve gifts perfect for their favorite hobby–cooking. Get them a gift that fits any budget, whether they’ll use it up immediately in their favorite recipes or hold onto it long time. 

This gift is a solid investment that your cook won’t soon toss—cast iron lasts. This skillet comes preseasoned, but it will keep developing a nonstick surface the same way your cook gains cooking skills—the more they’re used. The skillet rocks for everything from desserts like Skillet Cookies to comfort food like Cheddar Jalapeño Cornbread.

    I love Pampered Chef! Do they still sell the Apple Peeler Corer?

    • Eunice Coughlin December 5, 2022 at 2:17 pm #

      Hi Melinda,
      No, that product was discontinued this past summer. We have lots of other products that can help you peel and core your apples, though. Pampered Chef is as great as it’s ever been, I would say, even better!

    I was excited to try the garlic Parmesan seasoning that’s advertised all over the website, but sadly it’s out of stock. When will it be back in stock?

    I purchased the garlic press a few years ago and I use it quite often. I love the fact that the press allows you to add garlic buds without peeling them. I have also purchased other kitchen items that I use and have not been disappointed with my purchase. Thank you, PamperedChef.

      Thank you Stephanie for being a PC customer. Our garlic press is one of my top 10 products. I know you will enjoy it for years to come!

      Hi Patricia,

      Happy Holidays! I know exactly what you are describing but we don’t sell that style anymore. We do have Silicone Oven Mitts that are comfortable and do an even better job than the old mitts.
