Pampered Chef – Professional Shears and Coating Trays & Tool

I was provided with product samples to facilitate this review. The opinions here are my own, I have not been paid to say nice things and (as always) am honest. The photos here have been taken by me and include the product samples. Enjoy!


The Pampered Chef has become a household name after being around 30+ years and it’s no wonder as they have such incredible and practical products. Given my love for the brand it should come as no surprise that I gladly said yes when Pampered Chef Consultant and close friend Stephanie Wilson asked me to do a product review and host a giveaway.

The items I selected to review are:

Professional Shears



Coating Trays & Tool


My husband and I opted for those 2 items as the shears have unlimited uses and we don’t have anything even remotely comparable to the interlocking/different sized trays.The shears made trimming up the chicken a breeze – one snip and that was all it took. I also love that it has a safety lock on it and a cover to protect the blades when not in use.


As for the trays, usually when we make Panko crusted chicken we have to use a bowl to do the coatings but this system made it extremely easy and completely mess free while moving the chicken from one station to the other. The tool that comes with it is a bit flimsy under the weight of the chicken but it might work really well for lighter items! My husband suggested that PC reverse the pressure of the tool i.e. meaning that the cook should be the one closing the item to have a firmer grip as opposed to relying on the strength of the spring on them but overall this is a set we will be using for years to come. Next on our list? FRENCH TOAST!


The final, delicious meal looked a little something like this:
