Englishman living in England First time buying from Cooking Life. To purchase this produce in England would have cost £99.99. Getting it from Cooking-life cost £65.00. Communications from Cooking-life was very good from the start. Order received; order processed order dispatched. Then nervous couple of day till it was in the tracking system. Fedex across the borders great tracking system. Then arrived in England. Hermes. Was not delivered when stated, said no one was in to receive it, no idea where they tried to deliver it to. Due to Easter had to wait a few more days, when the regular courier turns up, she said there was a temp driver on, lots of complaints. Conclusion Great service from shop and transport, hopefully your have the right courier for the final leg.

I have made 3-4 orders with cookinglife in the past. The delivery usually takes about a week. I used to be happy with the selection of products in the shop and the deliver and quality. My last order though was the opposite of what I was used to at Cookinglife. I had ordered a range of MEPAL storage boxes. Although the delivery box was not damaged, 6 of the storage boxes were broken. On one box a piece of the plastic on the top had broken off and five of the other boxes had a deep scratch along the side. This must have been from when they unpacked the items at their warehouse as I didn't open the box with a knife. I sent them an email and got a response saying that I needed to provide photos of the box, the broken items and the delivery slip. I took photos of everything they had asked and sent it. They couldn't open the heic files so I changed into png. In total I sent the photos 3 times and when they had what they asked for they stopped responding to my emails. Im very disappointed of the customer service. I expect a replacement or the money back but they are not responding and ignoring my emails. It is going to be three weeks already without solving this.This is very unprofessional and I wouldnt have expected this. Cannot recommend.

Have yet to receive my order. Have contacted support at CookingLife and the courier and was not satisfied with responses or response timeframe from either. CookingLife responded initially but have not responded to further queries. The use of Fedex/Fastway needs immediate review. My package seems to have had to clear customs twice as it is being shipped through the UK I believe. I'm in Ireland. No extra customs and clearance should be needed if an EU only route is used by the courier. This does not seem to be the case! I cannot recommend anyone buy from here especially if they are in Ireland. It should not be the case that a customer who placed quite a substantial order does not know what is happening with their delivery 12 working days after it was shipped. Furthermore an Irish customer should not have to receive this awful experience due to poor choice of courier by Cooking life. Serious review of processes post Brexit needed here by CookingLife if they want to retain Irish customers.

Ordered on November 2021. Never received the order. Customer service almost impossible to reach, only providing standard Whatsapp replies without any follow-up. Also Trusted Shops didn't work, as I filed (in time), but they replied that they can't act because Cookinglife is 'working on it'...and now the protection has expired. It certainly feels like a Catch-22 scam.

Ich warte seit dem 8.12 auf eine Bestellbestätigung per Email. Zuerst war es mir nicht möglich die Transaktion überhaupt abzuschließen, nach langen hin und her wurde das Problem auf der Homepage geklärt. Nun hab ich endlich bestellt, teilweise war die Ware zwischenzeitlich nicht mehr lieferbar, allerdings keine Bestätigung erhalten, die Gutscheine sind eingelöst und die Bestellung nicht auffindbar. Ein Kunden Konto gibt es nicht, warum auch, sowas ist völlig überbewertet, wenn man ein fachlich kompetentes Serviceteam im Haus hat….dann könnte ich nämlich selbst nachschauen und müsste mich nicht auf den Service verlassen, den hier ist man dann scheinbar verlassen und fühlt sich auch noch richtig dämlich. Am Freitag 10.12 haben sie dann meine Bestellung angeblich doch gefunden und mir zugesichert das ich die gewünschte Bestätigung via email bekomme. Tja heute ist Montag bekommen hab ich nichts, sie meinte so eine email dauert…ein Bild vom Mars zur Erde schicken dauert 11 min und 22 sec, Ihr schafft es in fünf Tagen keine Bestellbestätigung von Aachen nach Oberösterreich zu schicken. Ich bestelle sehr viel online, diese Erfahrung ist jedoch einzigartig und wird es auch sicherlich bleiben. Ich hoffe ich bekomme meine bezahlte Ware, idealerweise auch noch heil geliefert….sonst werden wir hier weitere Schritte einleiten! Jetzt haben sie mir eine email geschickt, die Ware wurde versendet. Allerdings mit Ware die ich nicht bestellt hab und 18 € weniger als mein bezahlter Bestellwert. Unfassbar das man so unglaublich Unfähigkeit und inkompetent ist. Bin gespannt wie es weitergeht, wenn das nichts wird werde ich Anzeige wegen Betrug stellen

The package with the SMEG toaster I bought in 5 November never reached my address in Paris or the relay mentioned in the delivery tracker. I was at the relay location you indicated in the tracker and they informed me that they do not work with Colis Prive so it would be impossible to receive there a delivery sent by Colis Prive. In 6th December i informed you i didnt want to wait more time and asked for a refund. Since then i sent several emails to know when i will receive my money back and the answers are not enough clear. Something related with the fact that you cannot returm money until you do not receive the product back in your warehouses. I cannot accept this procedure because as a client, i dont have any control or responsability on the delivery process.I just know that i paid for a procuct that was supposed to be at my adress 7 days later and now after 51 days later i didnt receive the product, i didnt have my money back and i dont know when i will receive it. This is inadmissible !!!!!

They sent me other products than the ones I ordered, in the first parcel. I asked them to replace them and they offered me a 25% discount on the value. Basically, they forced me to pay for something I didn't need to be in their favor. In the second package, a product was sent broken, because I did not find any shards in the package. So Cookinglife sells junk! For two weeks, they didn't respond to my emails, so I filed a complaint with PayPal. An employee of Cookinglife asked me to submit a refund request to them on the site, although I had done so since January 10th. I accuse them of fraud and violation of EU law in online commerce. If Cookinglife do not pay back quickly, I will report it to the European Consumer Center. This company must be legal or disbanded. It has nothing to do with the European free market!

am afraid that one of the plates has been smashed in transit. I attach photo of the smashed plate and a photo of the packaging box. I must say that the packaging was insufficient. Whilst the plates were wrapped in bubble wrap and then a scrunched up a piece of brown paper was placed down 1 side only. There wasn't any notification on the box to indicate that the contents were fragile. Finally the plates are not Risotto plates. They are soup plates I attach photos of a real Maxwell Williams risotto plate and the ones sent to me and you will see the difference. Also they are definitely NOT "First class porcelain" as stamped on the reverse.I would like to return the plates to you f.o.c. and receive a refund. How can we achieve this? Regards Mo Williams

Place order and paid in early January via Paypal. After one month the order still didn't turn up. When contacting them via Paypal (as there is no customer service contact provided by Cookinglife) they claimed that they never received the the money. Paypal charged my credit card and never issued refund for it. The company suggest I should put order again and make another payment. Absolutely ridiculous! I have to open claim via Paypal to get my money back. Avoid this company.

The reason I gave 1 star was to rate I received the order. However, to my disappointment, the order was wrong and damaged I have emailed the info address twice. Once to notify them that my order was damaged and items were missing and the second time was to notify them that I would write a review if they continued to ignore my emails. I would like an email from cooking to let me know when I will receive the rest of my order and the missing items.
