Pampered Chef Ltd. is a company that specializes in more than 300 gourmet kitchen tools and cookware to be sold in a party plan marketing style.

Pampered Chef was founded in 1980 by Doris Christopher but was sold to Berkshire Hathaway, the conglomerate controlled by billionaire Warren Buffett, in 2002.  Christopher started the company in the basement of her home when her 2 children started school.  She taught home economics before becoming a mother and was trying to find a way to work from home.

Pampered Chef founder, Doris Christopher, came up with “an inventory of what she considered to be the essential home kitchen tools, promoted them under The Pampered Chef® name and began showcasing them at in-home cooking demonstrations called Cooking Shows”, according to their web site.  The company has grown to offer things like hot pads, sauces, spiked stemware holders to stick in grass, spices, and even bread mix.

HOW IT WORKS:

All products care a minimum 1 year guarantee but most important products like cutlery and heavy cookware carry a lifetime guarantee.  Pampered Chef has a great stock of recipes and you can view recipes that use a specific product if you need new ideas.  With cookbooks, online recipes, sauces, a gift registry, and a mass of products, Pampered Chef appears to have everything a kitchen needs.

Pampered Chef made $6,689 in sales in it’s first year, this quickly grew to $10 million by 1990.  The company boasts over 60,000 distributers and employs nearly 1,000 people at its headquarters in Addison, Ill.
