Warranty & Service

CookTek® is proudly offers reliable and durable commercial foodservice equipment. However sometimes things go wrong and service is required to correct a manufacturing defect, or repair a unit which has broken down in service.

There are two main scenarios – in warranty and non-warranty. The terms, conditions and process for both scenarios are set out below:

Call CookTek® Customer Service at 1-888- 266-5835 to arrange, or download and complete the form below. A credit card number is required to act as security until the defective unit is returned.

The shipping carton, inner carton and packaging materials in which the replacement product(s) arrived should be used for returning the defective unit(s).
