The Chefs Toolbox is one of Australasia's fastest-growing party plan companies.
Our business is about more than just selling quality cookware: our goal is to make cooking fun for our customers. We aim to show that by combining our high-quality cooking tools and simple recipes, it is easy (and enjoyable!) to prepare fabulous, healthy meals and achieve authentic flavours without having to reach for a packet or jar.
When you host a Cooking Party with us, one of our Consultants will visit your home and show you and your friends how to prepare two easy, delicious recipes using our stylish range of knives, cookware, silicone bakeware and utensils. As well as getting to see our products in action and even try them yourself, you'll pick up some handy cooking tips and hints along the way. Plus you'll get to taste the results!
Explore our website and you'll also find some great free cooking resources, including an expansive recipe library, a series of step-by-step "how-to" videos, our online store, eAT, which offers free recipes, cooking tips and Q&As, food facts and quizzes and a chance to win prizes though our regular competitions - all delivered directly to your inbox.

How We Began
From a muffin… a feast has grown. My journey towards this exciting concept began with my love of tasty, nutritious food. I was competing in triathlons and wanted to fuel my body en route so I started cooking muffins, which I stuffed into the front of my shirt before each race.
My love of food was further inspired when I began to travel overseas frequently for work. The restaurants of Europe offered food (and wine) that made my life begin to take on new meaning. I wanted to be able to recreate these dishes for my friends and family, so I often begged my way to the 'back of house' to talk to the chef about technique.
Armed with new knowledge, I soon found that I was enjoying cooking at home more than dining in restaurants. I was getting positive feedback about the meals, and I started to pass on my love of delicious food to others.
I began to realise that with the right equipment and a few basic techniques, cooking could be fulfilling and fun. I wanted to spread the word. It inspired me to my vision for the company, which I named The Chefs Toolbox.
The Chefs Toolbox commenced business on 1st August 2003 and is now one of Australasia’s fastest-growing Party Plan companies.
