Ordering item was easy, the price was excellent, the packaging was excellent especially as the item was going overseas, the only downside was waiting for the delivery as it took 8 days but then I must take into account the effects caused by the covid restrictions and the Christmas holiday period. All in all I am very pleased with the service, Thank You CookingLife

This item was ordered from the Netherlands on June 11th. The seller provided a tracking number, but it is of little use. FedEx confirmed receipt of the package on June 13th and since then there has been no further information. Fed Ex refuse to respond to enquiries regarding the shipment. As at June 20th, nothing has changed. Perhaps the product is good, I don't know. Perhaps the seller is good, I don't know, but I will now cancel the order and request a refund and in future I will not purchase from any seller who uses FedEx.

The order was not on time. I was aware there was a delay on part of the order but NONE of the order was sent. There were bo updates. Evebtually, bearly two weekslater, I cabcelled the order. The next day, I was emailed to say one item of 5 item was not tgere and they would send the rest. I wrote back to say no, I cancelled. I then received an email to say my order was being collected. Totally ignoring the fact I had cancelled, also within the 2 week cooling off period. So in all, unbelieveable. They held items they could have sent ie the majority of the order. They didn't update me and only when I said I wanted to cancel, did they engage ie ignored me again!!

Item received quickly (looked good) 2 days of use-broke. Contact customer service few times-no answer for weeks. Asked for refund- answer in hours. Asked return details-no answer. Payed return cost myself . Still dealing from april 26 to get a refund. waste of time and money. 139e for item I used 30 min in total. My fault- didn't read reviews before buying. What a shame on customer service team. Awful experience. Wouldn't recommend anyone.

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.

They don’t have the product I bought. They contact me saying that maybe they will have it in few weeks but time pass and I didn’t hear from them. I had to contact them again, they definitely don’t have my product choice and suggested to change for an other model. I’m really disappointed with the company and they communication, they sell a product they don’t have and let me waiting for nearly a month and now the first option they offer is not a refund. I want my money back and I will never buy in this shop again.

One of the worst customer experiences I've had purchasing in Europe. I ordered an item that became very delayed. Writing to customer support, I got a late response, telling me that it was lost in the post and there was nothing to do. I had to wait 45 days in order to get my money back, and even then I had to insist for this to occur. I got finally my refund after more than 50 something days post-purchase

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.

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.
