40 Year Anniversary

Doris Christopher held her first cooking party on Oct. 15, 1980. Since that day, we’ve been steadfast in our mission to provide cooking tools that give people more confidence in the kitchen, recipes that help families enjoy mealtimes together, and a business opportunity that makes the everyday better for our consultants.

But, with today’s expectations, we know finding the mealtime win can be difficult. We’re here to help bridge that gap between the ideal mealtime and the realities of today. We do this through our distinctive, high-quality kitchen tools, parties that show you how to make delicious, timesaving recipes, and the opportunity to join our supportive international community of more than 50,000 consultants.

Our Founder & Chairman

Doris Christopher is the founder and chairman of Pampered Chef, a Berkshire Hathaway company.

Doris Christopher founded Pampered Chef from the basement of her suburban Chicago home in 1980 with the belief that shared mealtimes have the power to enrich our lives in so many ways. With an entrepreneurial spirit and a $3,000 loan from an insurance policy, Doris had a simple plan to make mealtimes more enjoyable and less of a chore. From the very beginning, Pampered Chef has made that possible through professional-quality kitchen tools, cooking parties that inspire kitchen confidence, and a flexible business opportunity.

So much has changed over the years as mealtimes have migrated from the table to the kitchen island or wherever the day takes us. Yet, Doris’s core values and belief in the power of mealtime are more relevant than ever.

Doris has been recognized with numerous awards as one of America’s great entrepreneurial success stories. She is the author of two books: The Pampered Chef: The Story of One of America’s Most Beloved Companies and Come to the Table: A Celebration of Family Life.
