Pampered Chef #15–Mix ‘N Chop

27 Jan

I’m hosting an online Pampered Chef party…for only a few more days! 🙂   (Today is the LAST DAY, Jan. 27! Don’t miss out!). To celebrate, I’m featuring some of my favorite Pampered Chef items here on Suzanne Shares. Missed previous posts? Read all of them including the previous 14 favorite Pampered Chef items I featured here.

Once upon a time, a washing machine flooded in a kitchen. That kitchen belonged to….yours truly. We called our good friend, Rob, to take care of the flood and our ruined floors. They did great work, but the flood and ruined floors meant our house was unlivable for a few days. Did I mention that my awesome husband was on the continent of Asia when these repairs were happening?!?!? Awesome, awesome, awesome. 🙂

Sweet friends of ours from church offered to let us live with them during those few days of floor repairs (Thank you Dave and Kae!). Bless them for letting me and  6, 4, and 1 year old boys invade their home. They were gracious hosts, and we had a blast! One evening Kae, amazing cook extraordinaire, was browning ground beef for our meal. She was using this wild looking contraption that made the cooking of ground beef look effortless! Kae was in the middle of a story when I observed the said ‘wild looking contraption.’ I stopped her mid-sentence and mid-story (a 2 year old apology for stopping you mid-story, Kae!) and screamed, “What is the amazing, ‘wild looking contraption’ that you are using?!?!” She said, “Oh, this Mix and Chop? It’s from Pampered Chef, and it’s amazing. My friend had one, and I used hers and immediately bought my own.”

Well, you know what I did?!?! I did exactly what Kae did! I immediately went out and bought my own after watching Kae cook with this amazing ‘wild looking contraption.’ The chopping design of the Pampered Chef Mix and Chop cuts the hunk of ground beef as you are cooking it. Do you know how, once the raw ground beef (or turkey, chicken or sausage, which this also works with!) is in the skillet, it is in one massive hunk?!?! The Mix ‘N Chop allows you to, literally, chop it while stirring and cooking it. Have you ever done what I used to do in my pre-Mix ‘N Chop days? Do you try to saw through the meat with a spatula (which is quite difficult, I might add) in order to make it cook evenly and faster? Or, do you try to stir the big massive chunk of meat with your spatula, flip it over and slosh hot grease on you? (Or, was that just me!?!??) Anyway, those days of mine are gone, and I’m so relieved! This little tool is only $11.50, and it is worth every penny!

The moral of the story is this–yes, my kitchen flooded, which wasn’t fun. However, getting new floors (thanks Rob and Serve Pro of Belle Meade and West Nashville), vacationing a few days with our friends during the floor renovations while my husband was on another continent, and discovering the Pampered Chef Mix ‘N Chop were very much a “making-lemonade-out-of-a-lemon” kind of experience!
