All of our products are listed in convenient categories which can be accessed through the menu in the sidebar. The categories are listed in the sidebar as "copper pans", "copper pots" and "other pieces." Clicking on any one of those three categories displays a sub menu with individual groups such as saucepans, frying pans, casseroles and so on.  Click any one of these to display the individual items in each sub category. Alternatively there is also a search feature available at the top right of the website. If you're unable to find a specific item, please contact us. If you have a general question please contact us via this page.
A signature is required upon receipt of your order. You'll need to ensure someone is available to sign for your delivery. In the event of there not being an available signatory, the delivery driver will leave a note to say delivery was attempted and you will then be able to contact them directly to arrange a convenient delivery time. In the absence of your contacting the carrier Interlink will attempt to deliver to you two further times, before returning the goods to us.
Unfortunately, once we have received your order it will be processed immediately so any additions will need to be sent to us as a new order.
You will receive an e-mail confirmation from us immediately once we have received your order.

Because our cookware is made from thick 2.5mm professional grade bi-metal it is not cheap to ship overseas.  We use several different courier companies depending on the destination.  For most European countries we have obtained competitive fixed rates from one, or more, courier companies and can offer a fixed price for delivery enabling this to be included when placing an order online.

For other destinations, shipping rates are calculated using the box dimensions as well as the gross weight.  To ensure our customers receive the best possible shipping rate we obtain quotes for these individually, checking for the most competitive price with each courier company.

It is therefore not possible to display the delivery charges for all countries.  If you would like be advised of the shipping cost before placing your order, please contact us with a list of the items you wish to purchase, or send a screenshot with your Shopping Basket contents, and we will check the shipping rates and send you a quotation.

Add the product(s) to your basket in the usual manner then go to checkout where you will find a section "Enter a Coupon or Promotional Code".  Enter your code in the box and then click the "Submit Code" button. The relevant amount will now be deducted from your total.

We accept the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. 

We also accept the following debit cards: Visa Electron, Maestro (previously Switch) and Solo.

Alternatively payment can be made by bank transfer, or a cheque drawn on a UK bank.  

 

You can check the progress of your order, and review your past order history, through the customer account section of our website.

Upon your order being despatched, you will receive notification by email which includes a tracking link with the courier delivering this.
