Is Becoming a Pampered Chef Consultant Right for You?
Who knew that Pampered Chef has a mlm background right? I don’t know why I’m surprised by this. My mother would bring home Pampered Chef just after she got over her Longaberger phase.
It almost seems like there is a mlm out there that pushes the mlms to middle age mothers. Longaberger, Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Avon…all those big names are definitely names I have heard and had products from growing up.
It’s pretty amazing to me that it took until my 30’s to even realize that they were money making businesses. I had always thought it was a nice lady next door or my mother had a friend who just loved make up and baskets THAT MUCH….and obviously though afterward that I would never be like that.
I had no idea that a Pampered Chef Compensation plan even existed…let alone a comp plan for all the other multi level marketing businesses out there!
So, let’s get down with this Pampered Chef Review so, if you don’t know already, you can see what the Pampered Chef Business Opportunity entails and discover for yourself if it something you really would like to engage in to make money from home.
BUT…before we do that, I want you to hear what Brad has to say about multi level marketing. He was in one…or two or three. Then he kind of woke up one day and “saw the light”. Now, if you’re really not in the mood for this short video, it’s no big deal…just skip on down and check out the rest of my Pampered Chef mlm review. I’m ok with that!
Sounds crazy right? All these people joining a network marketing company and so many failing. This just doesn’t have to be.
The reality is is that you can make a lot of money with Pampered Chef and any mlm out there IF you have the right skills.
You do need to know about the product and the history (that’s where this mlm review will help you) but what most people don’t know, before they get into these multi level marketing opportunities, is that there will be a learning curve of how to create and strengthen their online presence. Call is SEO, website optimization or just learned knowledge of html and website ranking factors…..whatever you call it, it matters. As the world continues to grow and more and more companies take up the direct selling method of sales, the competition for these types of companies goes up.
Truth be told, there has never been a better time to learn about the internet. It is our future. If you don’t believe me, set a timer the next time you go ANYWHERE and then stop it the moment you see someone using their phone to scroll, read or look up something on the internet.
We are going into the age of “mo’ reading!” which means “Mo’ money” for you.
Books are carried everywhere and are read everywhere nowadays in our technical devices.
So if you want to sell Pampered Chef Mixing Bowls and other Pampered Chef kitchen tools, you need to know how to build an audience and create your own economy.
But…first things first….Let’s talk about the Pampered Chef Business Opportunity.
Pampered Chef Consultants – The Right Business Opportunity For You?
Pampered Chef is a classic multi level marketing company that sells kitchen tools.
Pretty simple eh?
Pampered Chef is seen as an elite set of kitchen supplies among many middle aged persons and the prices of the products are comparably outrageous to what you can find in Wally World.
All Pampered Chef kitchen tools come with the Pampered Chef logo promptly displayed on them as if they were a letter of recognition of the success of the person who owns them.
If you have Pampered Chef, you must be doing well financially in the world right? It’s the same thing with the Longaberger baskets. Ironically, it’s not the same as with Avon or Mary Kay…but that’s probably because they have lower priced and more affordable items that are consumable.
Pampered Chef was started in 1980! Started by Doris Christopher, the Pampered Chef Consultant opportunity was created to help “pause your life and take in the most important moments” by offering kitchen tools that make your cooking time faster and less “fussy”.
(I don’t know if you have ever used the Pampered Chef products, but I’m not sure how mixing bowls, spatulas and weird onion holders speeds things up. If I want fast, I go for the Hamburger Helper …gross I know)
Pampered Chef is a Berkshire Hathaway Company. The “home parties” are called Cooking Shows and independent consultants are encouraged to show off the unique products that Pampered Chef has in order to entice their visitors to purchase the items.
At the end of the cooking show, you will be given the opportunity to purchase Pampered Chef Kitchen tools for your own home and of course, asked if you’re interested in the Pampered Chef Consultant Discount via the Consultant opportunity.
Selling Pampered Chef 24/7? Pampered Chef Consultant – How to Join
Chances are that you are reading this because you were approached by a Pampered Chef Consultant to join the opportunity.
Sometimes you might even get a survey that asks you about your current job and if you enjoy it. This is one of the ways that leads to an opening conversation for the Pampered Chef consultants to approach you about purchasing the Pampered Chef starter kit. They will also talk to you about how you can “save” money by purchasing at wholesale prices as a consultant.
If you think that you will be buying a ton of Pampered Chef products, it’s not a bad idea to join the opportunity just to get the discount, but make sure that you want all these products because you are required to buy $150.00 each month in order to stay “active”.
You might also consider the $10 monthly fee to get the Pampered Chef website so that you can start making Pampered Chef Sales pronto and 24/7 BUT..you’re going to need to know how to set up your website in the best way to attract potential clients.
It’s important to get started right away at creating website that draws in sales because eventually your family, friends, Facebook and Twitter buddies are going to be exhausted from your multiple attempts to try and get them to come to your cooking extravaganzas.
MLM Reviews: Pampered Chef Compensation Plan
So you think you’re ready to start getting that Pampered Chef consultant discount and you’ve got the Pampered Chef consultant agreement in your hands or you’re wondering what it looks like.
To save you some time, I’m going to summarize the Pampered Chef compensation plan for you and if you join, you can always access the agreement and keep up with the latest changes in the compensation plan.
There are nine main ranks in the Pampered Chef consultant plan.
- Senior consultant
- Team Lead
- Advanced Director
- Senior Director
- Executive Director
- Senior Executive Director
- National Executive Director
Each of these nine ranks have different requirements in order to achieve the rank. Once you start to get higher up in rank you will find that your personal sales requirements go up along with the number of Pampered Chef consultants that have to be in your downline in order for you to progress and make more money with the Pampered Chef Comp plan.
You will enjoy several bonuses along the way as well. There are monetary bonuses along with Pampered Chef product credits. Starting at the Advanced Director rank, you must have a total of $12,000 or more within your entire organization per month.
Team sales don’t come into effect until you reach the rank of a Team leader and then beyond that the personal and team sales must equal $5,750.00 per month.
Each Pampered Chef Consultant can has several different requirements that they must meet in order to stay at that rank.
The requirements to stay active vary at each rank within the Pampered Chef Comp Plan.
The requirements are:
- Personal Sales
- Personal Team Sales
- Personal Team Actives (The # of active Pampered Chef dealers in your downline)
- Qualified Director Teams (The number of teams and an Advanced Director and beyond that you need)
- Organization Sales
The Bonuses that you can earn as a Pampered Chef consultant vary and can be any of the following:
- Recruiting Bonus- Consists of Pampered Chef product credit
- Monthly Active Bonus
- 2nd Generation Director bonus
- 2nd Generation General Director Leadership Deviation Bonus
- Executive Director Car Allowance – up to $900 / month
Overrides are given to Pampered Chef consultants on their own sales and their downline sales. You can get overrides from personal sales, direct recruit sales, indirect recruits (this is not common in mlm companies so this is an extra), Team and personal overrides.
The Leadership Overrides for being a good leader are also available on the 1st generation, 2nd generation director, 2nd generation teams and the 3rd generation once you hit the Executive Director rank and more.
The highest rank you can achieve in the Pampered Chef Compensation plan is the National Executive Director which requires $200,000 per month in organizational sales.
Should you put your future in the hands of the Pampered Chef Consultant Agreement?
It really depends on how you want to approach your online home business opportunity.
You can choose any multi level marketing opportunity out there but if you don’t know how to optimize your website to draw in traffic after your friends and family are burnt out from your attempt to make Pampered Chef Sales, you’re not going to get very far.
Network marketing, direct sales or multi level marketing are all sales jobs at their core, so the questions is do you want a sales job that sells the products that you love.
You can be success in mlm but again, you need the skills.
If you can find yourself learning how to really blast out a website or two that brings in fantastic traffic and taking the time needed to help expand with each step, then you will likely be very successful.
Like most successful mlm sales persons, you have to be willing to do what it takes and not give up. So let’s talk about giving up…
Why Pampered Chef Dealers don’t succeed
If you can be successful selling Pampered Chef, then why do over 80% of the people fail? And furthermore, why do less than 5% make large amounts of income?
It’s not because they don’t try. Oh ok..well maybe it’s because some of them don’t try. But most people who join mlms join and try right out the gate and then they start to hit the typical mlm roadblocks.
- No Traffic and No skills to get the traffic
- Lack of knowledge of how to convert traffic to sales if you even get it
- Their leaders and upline can’t help them because they are too busy trying to figure out how to make their monthly quotas to stay active and they lack the skills anyways.
- Training that does everything but show you how to get the traffic you need after your family and friends are fried.
These are just a few but probably the most important roadblocks that a Pampered Chef consultant will run into.
There is a better way…
Now is the time to decide if you’re going to spend that $100 or more on a Pampered Chef starter kit or not.
Spend your hard earned money on a classy online coaching program that was started by two millionaires…Dan and Brad.
They want you show you how to make money using the internet and without the mlm involved.
You can certainly use the skills you learn to do mlm but chances are, after you take their course and get involved with the online geniuses you will come across in this group, you’re going to leave even the slightest though of joining mlms in the dust.
You see, Job Killing is successful. People who follow the program are making thousands in residual income and the founders of Job Killing practice what they preach.
They are continually focused on learning and keeping up with the changes that matter in the industry and they pass that information along to you in screencasts, phone calls, facebook and private sessions.
They are at the top of the internet food chain with all of the other internet billionaires.
You really have to see what Brad has to say here so you can get a better idea of this awesome opportunity and why Brad left the mlm world (even though he was making $20,000/week)
Please only schedule a call if you’re serious about joining. Think about how you found this website and then ask yourself how a teacher who knew nothing about website building or blogging was able to be found so easily on the internet at a GLOBAL scale.
The answer is Job Killing, the millionaire mentoring and so much more. Yes, I’ve made thousands from this program and keep going. The sky is the limit and you can do this too no matter what your back ground.

I hope to see you on the inside. Make sure to say hi!
Jared Tame says
I was thinking of joining as a Pampered Chef Consultant, but your whole site makes me think that it would take away from my job of cooking and make me focus more on sales…which I hate. Thank you so much for this Pampered Chef review and all this information on mlms.
No problem Jared. You are right about having to do sales. MLMs and any network marketing is a sales job. It’s a little different than traditional sales in that you get to have a % in from the profits. You have to make sure you are 100% in love with the product because genuine sells. Thanks for stopping b and good luck with our cooking!
