Pampered Chef Review - Mix 'N Chop

Well, as some of you may have noticed, I bit the bullet and became a Pampered Chef Consultant.  At this time, I am leaning towards ONLY doing catalog shows (if I am able to build up enough interest, I will start internet sales also. I am holding off for right this second because it is an extra cost to have your own website).  In order to help promote these WONDERFUL products and possibly drum up some business, I will be doing some reviews of MY favorite products.

Up first is the Mix 'N Chop (Product # 2583, Retail $10.00)

Oh my goodness people, you can not believe how wonderful this product is!!!!  It plows through a multitude of food densities with little effort!  Here is what Pampered Chef has to say: Unique, beveled pinwheel blades efficiently chop and crumble foods for even cooking and seasoning. Its high-quality nylon design follows the curves of your cookware and won't scratch the surface.

I personally have used my Mix 'N Chop for at least 3 years now!  I use it when browning meat for spaghetti, chili, Hamburger Helper-type meals, and oh so many other dishes.  We receive a quarter of beef for Christmas every year and I rarely defrost my hamburger for these types of meals.  I use another Pampered Chef product (the Large Micro Cooker) and this Mix 'N Chop and within 10 minutes I have fulled cooked and crumbled hamburg!

Let me share just a few ideas I have (or seen) the Mix 'N Chop used for:

Hamburger

Ground Turkey

Ground Beef

Sausage

Deer meat

Mashing potatoes

Mashing fruit for jams

Mashing bananas for bread

Smooshing apples as they cook to make applesauce

Tomatoes for salsa or canning

Breaking up clumps of cold rice (GREAT for making fried rice)

Scrambled Eggs

Avocados for Guacamole

Making stars on top of cookies (Sugar Cookies, while cookie is hot dip the Mix 'N Chop in food coloring and then stamp. For Peanut butter, stamp the dough ball then bake!)

Mixing meatloaf

Mixing meatballs

Hard boiled eggs for egg salad

Breaking ice (whether it is store bought or from your freezer)

Crumbling bread for stuffings

Breaking up clumps of hash browns

Refried beans

Milkshakes

Frozen Fruit or Fruit Juice Concentrate

And I am sure there are many, many more things this wonderful tool can do! At $10.00, it is a must have for your own kitchen and makes a wonderful gift also!

I've never seen this tool before but it has been several years since I've been to a Pampered Chef party. My favorite is the stoneware cookie sheet. I use it for everything! It is so nicely seasoned now. I don't think I could live without it if something happened to it!
