    Aight, I'll bite. What the hell is "her pampered chef"?

    .dat = data file, which can be literally anything.

    i think he meant her as in her's , and Pampered Chef is a salesman program

    does Pampered Chef have it's own software, what do the dat files normally open in?

    .dat files are rarely directly opened, they are more often opened by the software that uses it.
