How many recipes can I add to my shopping list?
There is no limit on the Cookidoo® website, however, if you want to order ingredients online there is a limit of approx. 100 items or 10 recipes.
How are the products selected? The product suggested will be the closest weight or volume to the required ingredient to reduce waste. If there are multiple options, the suggestion will be a popular mid-range product.
Is there a minimum order amount?
Yes. In most cases there is a minimum order amount and in certain cases delivery is free of charge. It varies retailer by retailer. Please check their websites for further details about orders, payments, and deliveries.
What if I can’t find the product I want, or that is specified in the recipe?
Unfortunately, the availability of products is specific to the retailer so you might check
different retailers available in your area or look in Tips and tricks on the recipe detail
page to see if there are alternative ingredients.
The system suggested a wrong ingredient for the recipe I want to cook, and I
purchased it. Can I get a refund?
We recommend checking that all products match the desired shopping list, as if you
were in the supermarket. Refund varies retailer by retailer. Please review the return
policy from the respective retailer as you might be able to swap or get a refund.
What if I do not have an account with one of the offered retailers?
Normally it is required to create a new account. In most cases, it is possible to do it
free of charge. Please check the details on the retailer’s website.
My order did not arrive or was damaged. Who do I call?
Please check the details on your chosen retailer’s website or call their customer
service line directly.
The retailer I usually buy my food from is not an option in your list. Will you be
adding more retailers in the future?
We select our partners based on their ability to operate efficiently online as well as
based on their geographic coverage. We are always looking to add new retailers to
our list and will let you know whenever a new partner is available.
