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.

Service from Cooking life was good, but choosing to work with Hermes delivery service in the UK is a poor choice. First order that was delivered contained smashed glasses, courier could get away quick enough after delivering it to my front door, I soon discovered why. Second delivery has been with local depot for three days and still not delivered. I can’t even speak to the depot as the sender has to this. Please change your UK courier to someone more reliable

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.

Me senti enganada, comprei através do site, vivo em Portugal e a página veio automaticamente traduzida, e a tradução está mal, aparece escrito que o artigo é a panela de pressão e não a borracha. Fiz a reclamação e enviei o print da tela onde consta o erro de tradução, e recebi de resposta que me enviaram o que comprei, e que as panelas neste site custam 90€ Um verdadeiro horror, para algo que deviam de agradecer por eu ver tamanho erro.

I purchased a Smeg coffee grinder online from Cooking Life in the Netherlands. I have no complaint about the product or the efficient delivery BUT I find that as I am in the UK, an EU model has no guarantee over here - Smeg UK will not accept an EU model for registration and therefore I have no warranty on the product if it goes wrong. I was not told about this when I purchased it so that is why I am giving Cooking Life such a low rating.

This shop sent me a different item than I ordered. However, the shop will not refund me because they have not returned the item. But I can't get a refund because I haven't returned the item. But you said that you don't pay for the return shipping from outside the country. Who would be stupid enough to send back an item with a shipping cost higher than the refund? This has been the worst shopping experience I have ever had.

The goods arrived on time, however they were damaged and not during the delivery. Both the case and the cutlery inside were marked. The knifes also looked to be different in colour. When requesting to send it back, I received an address label, but it will still cost me to send it back from the UK. Not impressed and be warned if buying from the UK as it will cost you to send anything back.

I supposedly bought it on a website within the EU. However, it has been 7 days since my order has arrived. I asked and what's my surprise that it's stopped at customs and I'm certainly going to have to pay hefty customs fees!! I will never buy on this site again

The cups and saucers were much smaller than the ones I ordered. It took over a week to receive the goods after they had arrived in the UK. Very disappointed. Too much trouble to return the goods. Will not order from this company again.

I strongly do not recommend, they sell goods that they supposedly have, but not, the refund will of course take another 10 working days, what's the point? why someone sells goods that are not there (to this day it is in stock on the website). Why are the money that I pay with them in an instant and the return takes several days? support responds after a few days. I DO NOT RECOMMEND

The order was processed quickly and came quickly but they delivered the package to a pick up point far from my home in the center of Gothenburg. It was difficult to reach walking or by public transportation and I don't have a car. There was a pick up point just down my street only a 6 minute walk or directly on public transportation but the didn't choose that one.

Everything appeared to be going great then Hermes got hold of it and tried to deliver the package on a Saturday - we are closed on weekends. They website states they will try and redeliver the nest working day, the didn't, or the day after or the day after that - you get the picture. Now I can't get an answer from anyone to advise what the heck is going on?

Still waiting on delivery of Le Creuset casserole pot. Tracked my order to find out why there has been a delay and apparently my parcel is 'a bit too big' to deliver and has been passed to a specialist delivery firm for delivery within 48 hours. That time has now passed and still no parcel. Hermes delivery tracking site has no up to date information.

The knife was poorly packaged to travel such a distance leaving the package dented. There were THREE people at home. The courier didn't knock the door, choosing to leave it in the open porch for anyone to steal. As it was a knife (costing £80!). he should have asked for proof of age, but didn't because he couldn't be bothered to knock the door!!

I will update my review when my refund request is completed. I ordered 3 items and a Le Creuset frying pan arrived severely damaged on the handle. I immediately requested a return and refund. The process is rather slow and it's taking some time which is annoying. I can't believe an item as damaged as that one was shipped in the first place.

Plates arrived yesterday in large cardboard box which had been bashed in transit. Box not marked fragile. Plates wrapped in clingfilm and loosely surrounded by bubble wrap. It looks like they are all smashed or chipped. Really poor packing. Await comment from company regarding refund as don’t trust them to wrap and send again.

Ordered a le Creuset casserole to my address in England. They sent it to Austria. I contacted them as soon as the order confirmation came through and they said they will contact the delivery company and get back to me. No one got back to me. Now they said they don’t know where the package is but they can’t issue a refund!!!

When package arrived, the content was in pieces. You could hear broken glass inside. I'll add the package was not marked as fragile. Contacting cookinglife support got me a message "You can put your text here" and no response afterwards. Their phone number is barred. You can try your luck, maybe you'd be luckier than me.
