TAPinto: What is Pampered Chef?

Kuchnicki: Pampered Chef is a national direct sales company that provides kitchen tools, recipes and cooking tips to help families get homemade meals on the table. Our mission is to enrich lives one meal and one memory at a time. I provide these kitchen products and services through in-home and on-line parties. 

TAPinto: What’s unique about your business?

Kuchnicki:  I am a consultant, not a salesperson, which means I don't just sell you the products but teach you how to use them. I am also your tech support when you have questions or just need some recipes. I want you to love all the Pampered Chef products you get, and I don't want my customers to leave them in a box because they don't know how to use them or what recipes to make. They only save you time and help you get a meal on the table if you are comfortable using them in your own kitchen making your favorite recipes, so I am here to help you.

TAPinto: How did Pampered Chef get its start?

Kuchnicki: Doris Christopher, a working mom with two young children, founded Pampered Chef in 1980 because she realized the importance of bringing families to the dinner table each evening to share a meal and reconnect after a busy day. She started Pampered Chef in her garage, and took the products to home parties to show other families how easy it is to get a meal on the table with high quality and time-saving kitchen tools.

TAPinto: Most important for people to know about Pampered Chef?

Kuchnicki: Through in-home and on-line cooking demonstrations I can teach you simple recipes, tips and kitchen hacks using high quality kitchen products that will save you both time and money. I want my customers to spend more time with their families making memories at the dinner table instead of cooking and cleaning.

“My party hosts earn a free shopping spree plus up to 60% off reduced prices on anything else they want,” said Kuchnicki adding how she can also help set up gift registries for bridal and anniversary parties “so your friends can easily shop for your new kitchen products.”

“Pampered Chef party hosts never pay full price for a year after your party,” she said.
