Return and Refund Policy

Our Return Policy: We want to keep this simple.

If you are not happy with something you bought, we’ll take it back as long as it is within 30 days of purchase and the item is eligible for return.

To be eligible for a return, your item(s) must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. You also must return your item in the original packaging.

If the fault is on us (mixed up, faulty on arrival), we’ll of course pay for return shipping as well.

How to return?

  1. Pack up your unwanted item.
  2. Contact us and we’ll email you a RMA number
  3. Follow the simple instructions in the email

No Nerdy terms here, it’s basic stuff.

A Little More Details For You:

Of course while you do not have to give a reason to return your order for a full refund, we do have a few rules below that must be followed to keep this process streamlined.

  • You requested the return within 30 days after your item(s) was delivered
  • The Nerd Culinary RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number is written on the package 
  • We received the returned item(s) and it is in new and unused and in its original condition
  • Return shipping cost has been paid by you.

Items that we cannot accept returns for:

  • Any item more than 30 days after delivery
  • Any Item that has been used, washed or worn

 We reserve the right not to accept your return if:

  • Refund will be initiated within 3 business days after we received the returned item(s)
  • Once refund is initiated, it could take up to 2 billing for the refund to appear on your credit card statement. Please note that we have no control over the speed of this process, as it depends on credit card gateways and your card issuing bank.
