The products that The Pampered Chef sell are all professional grade catering equipment for the home.

How to Apply
You can apply to become a sales consultant for The Pampered Chef online or through another The Pampered Chef representative. There are start up costs involved with the main package costing £125 or a smaller version that costs £70. These should be enough to allow you to carry out basic demonstrations and start selling your The Pampered Chef wares.
The actual earning potential of The Pampered Chef isn’t ever discussed which is rather disappointing frankly although no doubt upon registering your interest this will come up. What The Pampered Chef do advertise heavily though is that there are a number of different bonuses and incentives such as luxury holidays, jewellery and vouchers to spend on The Pampered Chef products yourself.
The Pampered Chef isn’t necessarily a household name and honestly, the whole setup feels very Americanised. For example the shows that you host to demonstrate your wares involve cooking a recipe whilst your prospective clientèle get involved and help out, trying the products as they do. This would work well in a large kitchen but given the restrictions of most UK households this may prove challenging. That having been said what is on offer with The Pampered Chef seems to represent a rather unique opportunity with no direct competition springing to mind. This means that there may well be some decent money in this.
