How do I start a subscription to CrateChef?
It’s easy! Just go to cratechef.com, click Get the Box, choose Subscription Boxes and choose a 1 Box recurring subscription (auto-renews every other month) or a 3 Box recurring subscription (purchase 3 boxes upfront, auto-renews for another 3 box subscription in the first month of the next subscription period.) Welcome to our community!
Will my credit card be charge automatically when my subscription renews?
Yes! When an subscription order is placed in our store, it is a recurring order. So, at the end of the subscription it automatically renews unless the subscriber cancels their account or skips a shipment. If you purchase a 1 Box subscription, you are charged every other month before the new box ships. If you purchase a 3 Box subscription, your subscription automatically renews are in the first month of the next subscription period.

I have a product I would like you to consider. How can I participate?
Each of our products are chosen by the chef curating that month’s box. However, if you would like to submit your food item or your kitchen related item, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will submit your product to our upcoming chef for review.
I received something in my box that I do not like. Can I have a refund?
We want our community to be 100% satisfied and do our best to feature items that everyone can enjoy. The boxes are a surprise every month. Because you purchase the box with the understanding that it is a surprise, you are taking a chance that something may not be for you. Therefore, we do not issue refunds because an item may not be your favorite. An item that you may not love may make a great gift for a friend!
I am a blogger. Do you send out review boxes?
Yes! We look for bloggers and influencers in a related field, with a large readership who are willing to post online and on social media. Our review slots fill up quickly. We keep information from bloggers who contact us and will get in touch if an opportunity arises. You are welcome to review a box that you have purchased. If you happen to review a box, please send us the link for the review. We will share reviews on our social media channels.
My box was lost/damaged.
If your box was lost, we have the ability to check when and where a box was delivered, and can work with the United States Postal Service to get a refund. We will send out a new box as long as we have one available. If a box is not available, we can issue a refund.
Please contact us within seven days after your box is delivered if it arrives damaged. After seven days, we will not issue a replacement. If an item in your box was damaged, please send us a photograph of the damaged item so we can learn how to better package it next time. We will send you a replacement item.
