Anyone do a registry through Pampered Chef? I love their products and we’re looking into doing one of our registries there, since it seems we need to allow people to give us junk we don’t need, haha.
I was thinking of doing Pampered Chef and a honeymoon registry, since I know some folks are anti-HM registries. Do you think that’ll be too hard for older/less technology literate people? Neither has a store you can walk into a buy a blender you can walk out of the store with…

If I were you, I’d look into a brick-and-mortar registry if you can, even if it’s just for a few guests who might want to buy a couple of things. BB&B has some great things or at the very least, a few pieces of wall art, some reaaaallllyyyy nice towels and picture frames are things you can manage putting somewhere, right? Good luck!

Yeah, we’ll probably have to pick a brick and mortar too, even though I’m not sure I can find too much at one place that I’d realistically want. We’re already combining apartments!
Anyone actually work with Pampered Chef for a registry though??? That’s my REAL question! 🙂

Yes! I’m registered at Pampered Chef. The nice thing about it for me is that I have a retailer in town where people can shop as well as the online registry. I LOVE pampered chef stuff, so we’re stocking our kitchen with it! My aunt in her 60s has already bought me stuff off of it and I know it’s pretty “old-people respectable” I highly recommend it!

@Mrs Dee to Bee, do you have an individual who sells locally, or an actual store? I have a friend who does the parties and sells stuff and whatnot (what’s it called? an agent?), but she lives in another state, so I’m not sure whether I should list her (or request someone else, which seems like it’s randomly assigned) on the registry as my agent.

I would list your friend so that she can make the commission!! I’m sure she’d be willing to travel for the cash.

I am a Pampered Chef consultant part time just so I can get free and discounted products!! Their registry is great, and people can order things over the phone if they aren’t technologically able to order online. I think its a great idea, although I should be ashamed cuz I did not do a Pampered Chef registry. I went with BB&B, but I’m hoping that i’ll have a nice big kitchen once we get our own place, and I will then be the happy owner of at least 2 of everything since I’ll also have the PC stuff.
PM if you have any Pampered Chef questions!

Daydream, when you go to start the registry, it should ask you for the consultants name. The catch is that she has to be an “online” consultant in order for her to be your consultant for the registry (hope that makes sense). If her name doesn’t show up, you can always call her and have her set it up for you, that way any sales go under her.

My consultant is also my caterer and basically BFF of the family. She has her own catering business/restaurant and sells Pampered Chef products from her shop/restaurant where she also hosts shows. Hope that answers your question!

My mom became a pampered chef consultant a few months ago, so I decided to do I pampered chef registry because I do really like their products. She was talking to me about doing a pampered chef bridal shower, where people don’t actually bring gifts to the shower, rather they pick things out for you at the party itself. So it’s kind of like a bridal shower combined with the cooking aspect of a pampered chef show. I don’t know how I feel about this yet, because it is pretty untraditional and I don’t know how some people would feel about it. You definitely don’t have to have the pampered chef bridal shower and can just register normally. But so far I have been happy with the ease of their registry and am excited about stocking my kitchen with their cool gadgets.
I am also a West Michigan bride, so if you have any questions about it let me know!

I did a Pampered Chef registry and LOVED it! I would definitely also do a registry at a brick & mortar store (I can give you a great recommendation for BB&B’s registry if you’re interested) because not everyone likes buying gifts online or is familiar with pampered chef. But I found that the guests where were familiar with pampered chef were SO excited to use that registry. I love all of the great kitchen gadgets that I got. The best part was that when it was all said and done, I ended up with $75 in Pampered Chef credit, two 50% off items of my choice, 25% off anything else after that and 10% off any order for an entire year. The icing on the cake? Free shipping on the order where you redeem your rewards. LOVE IT!!!!

I set up a Pampered Chef registry because I love their stuff and have a friend who’s a consultant, but hardly anything got bought off of it. I think people were too lazy to go seek out a registry website that’s anything besides the norm because our Target registry was almost cleaned out! Maybe your guests are more progressive? 🙂

I’ve never heard of Pampered Chef before. Just looked at their website. Is it just like avon or mary kay but for kitchen stuff?

I used to be a consultant! I absolutely LOVE their products (and warranties – one set of cookware and forged cutlery for the rest of my life!). I basically sold it to stock my kitchen, which I did and am so proud of! Of course they keep coming out with new products, and I’m addicted, so I pay full price now.
The only problem I saw with the PC registry, is that all sales have to go through the consultant you set it up with in order to be marked off your registry and have it count towards your rewards. Some people get really upset over this (if they are attending their friend’s show through another consultant, they can’t buy stuff towards your registry). But I guess it’s the same as someone going to Macy’s to buy you the Lenox china that you have registered at BBB for…. so it isn’t marked off your registry.
Hope that helps…can’t say enough about their products, and customer service – they stand behind their products!!
