    Has anyone seen 'hide nor hare' of these people. I ordered a double skillet off their website sometime ago and have not heard anything since. I have emailed three times and left several messages on their answer service. Went to ring them again today only to find they have removed their contact number and the line is dead. Really really want a double skillet but they are terrible at communicating with their customers. :Angry:

    We bought one last weekend at the Peterboro' show .... I understand there is only one lady now and that she is stopping shows to concentrate on internet sales but still in business.

    The address given on the leaflet enclosed with the skillet ;
    D&F Promotions, Greenways Farm, Flaxlands, Carleton Rode, Norfolk, NR16 1AD

    "www.doubleskillet.com" is the web address given but I have tried it and it seems a bit dated and has a different address in Kent.

    I spoke to her at the Peterborough show as Nikki and I bought one for Carol(carol&Eddie). Peterborough is the last show she is doing, she said she is retiring. She used to have a lady with her who passed away.

    However, she did say that she would continue to offer her product online.


    What I do know is this. It's a great product, and it needs to be, I've never found her anything less than Rude to say the least. :RollEyes:

    Wish I would of asked her about taking it over, she is always selling. :Smile:

    I gather that the Double skillet lady has recently lost her partner
    but is continuing business on her own.
    She was at the Peterborough show and
    says she is under great pressure of work
    but the product is well worth waiting for.
    Sheila has two, one for home and another for the m-home.:BigGrin:

    I wish now that I had asked you to get me one while you were at Perterborough. I did think about it but then thought of something else a nano second later and forgot all about it.:Doh:

    Paul I had also thought this would be a good business to take over, especially as I like cooking. Food for thought :Rofl1:

    Their internet business is currently useless. Waited from November to March with no communication from them. Maybe because of the bereavement. Lost patience but its burnt my bridges by having a go! May have to eat humble pie and reorder. Would be good to know whom the supplier is!!

    They must have the rights to the design I would think. No amount of internet searching brings them up anywhere else.
    I don't mind waiting as long as I know I am waiting for something. A single email or a returned call to put my mind at rest is all that's needed to keep customers happy.

    I ordered one in March. I received an email saying that there would be a two week delay (annoying because we were going away at the end of March and wanted to try it out in the motorhome). Got back to find no delivery (money had been taken though). No reply to my first email but when I threatened to give bad publicity on this site :thumb:, I got an email saying that the money would be refunded AND they would send a free replacement:Eeek:.

    Money has now been refunded but (three weeks later) no sign of the freebie. I have emailed again but had no reply.

    Shame cos we wanted one as well but I am not going to go through that again.

    I'm probably being a bit dim but can't see who you ordered from. Was it Frances Foulds of orders@doubleskillet.com? If so I have also ordered one. This does not bode well!:Eek!:

    I wonder who had the foresight to buy an extra one at Peterborough even though not needed just yet? :whistle::thumb::clap:

    Yep that's the one. We just need a little communication to let us know what to expect. I might contact PayPal on Monday to see if there is a way of getting my money back.
