Giveaway open to Canadians.

You all know I’m not a cook. If I can eat out or get someone to cook for me, then I’m a happy woman. But I realize that, for many reasons (a: I’m not rich, b: my mom lives too far away and c: if my husband did ALL the cooking, I would be too indebted to him), I am called upon to make meals on a regular basis.

Therefore, I am a fan of any item that makes it easier for me to feed my family, and Pampered Chef is one-stop-shopping for all sorts of time-saving tools. Some of my favourite goodies:

  • the apple corer and wedger, which slices through apples, removing the core and leaving kid-friendly wedges
  • the ice-cream dipper, which works like a charm every time (no digging your fingers in to dislodge the ice cream)
  • the classic batter bowl, perfect as a mixing bowl, measuring cup, or for baking the always-a-hit Barbie-skirt cakes (and it comes with a lid)
I have to admit I was very lucky this year, because one of the girls in my class was the daughter of my Pampered Chef Consultant…so two of those three items were received as teacher gifts!

In case you’ve never heard of Pampered Chef, the products are sold through direct-sales parties hosted by trained consultants. Some people think their stuff is expensive, and some items are (cookware, knives, etc.) but the quality and guarantees can’t be beat, and there are a ton of more budget-friendly items. A couple of weeks ago, I held a cooking party in my home (I know, the irony) with ten guests, and I ended up earning $245 worth of free Pampered Chef loot. My choices:

  • vegetable peeler
  • large round stone with handles 
  • egg separator
  • large cutting board
  • medium cutting board
  • stoneware pan – 12 muffin 
  • pie plate 
  • large serving spatula
  • all purpose spreader
  • basting brush
  • pizza cutter
  • tongs for Cool and Serve

(Yes, I got ALL THIS just for having the party at my house…and a free veggie wedger for having 10 purchasing guests, and a choice of products at 60% off and 50% off.)

The stoneware is one of their best products as far as I’m concerned. My first ever purchase was a large stoneware bar pan (which you can enter to win today — your own, not mine!) This can be used for meat, baking, etc…and the most beautiful feature is that it cooks evenly,and there is no need to flip your food! More adept cooks will love it for fresh meat and home-baked treats, while I find it’s fantastic for frozen fish, chicken strips, and cookie dough! My Pampered Chef Consultant has mentioned that she likes to put a whole slew of bacon on it (overlapped, whatever) and it will cook to perfection.

Thanks to Mandy, the aforementioned Consultant and great teacher-gift-giver, I am giving away one large stoneware bar pan to a lucky This Mom Loves winner! The prize is shown below, and is valued at $45! All you have to do to enter is fill out the form below and click “submit”. The only question I’m asking is your favourite Pampered Chef product…if you have one! If you don’t own any Pampered Chef (yet!) you can say that too. Be sure to let me know if you follow This Mom Loves through GFC, email or Twitter for extra entries.

If you’re interested in Pampered Chef, feel free to check out Mandy’s website. If you happen to live in our area, she’d be thrilled to host a party for you, or get you started on your own Pampered Chef business. No matter where you live in Canada, she can hook you up with the right contacts to help you, whatever your needs may be.

This contest will run until 11:59 p.m. Eastern on August 23rd, after which time a winner will be chosen through random number generation.

Good luck, and get cooking!
