Our market presence has also increase exponentially, with over 400 retail outlets now stocking our range, and our online store being more accessible & informative than ever.

What our patrons say…

Once again Thank you for the excellent service. I have mentioned to a few friends about your good service.

This message is to say thank you for your phenomenal service

I logged a whatsapp fault on our traveller stove with a list of issues I wanted to be addressed.  The stove was picked up the same day by the courier and returned 2 days later – new fan and cracked glass top replaced.  Only charge was the courier fee.

Simple, efficient and effective service no hassles good communication via whatsapp.

I am so impressed

Thank you Snappy chef – your excellent service is recognised and appreciated.

Kind regards

Dear Philip, thanks you so very much for such an amazing service from Snappy Chef. I now regard Snappy Chen as the best company in South Africa.

I am most satisfied and duely assembled the new parts to my kettle with outstanding results. You will never say it is an old kettle. Looks absolutely new.

Being a retired Mercedes Benz assy plant here in East London Technical Quality  engineer, you can imagine how particular I am to detail and confirm every thing fitted beautifully first time.

Thanks again for outstanding service.

Hi Philip,

Aan jou en jou span wil ek my uiterste waardering uitspreek vir die vriendelike en  puik diens met die herstel van ons Snappy Chef asook om dit tuis afgelewer te kry. Sulke diens sien mens baie min.

Baie dankie.

My Snappy Chef arrived in good order and appears to be functioning 100%. Thank you for the prompt and efficient service I received – very uncommon in South Africa!

We do more than 90% of our cooking on the Snappy Chef and, given its virtues, fail to understand why every home does not have one.

Upon reporting the problem I had reservation about the service that I would receive as numerous companies have little or no support at all.

I have 7 different pots which are excellent and the kettle was a disappointment due to the leak.

I can sincerely recommend Snappy Chef as the service received regarding the repair to the kettle (repairing the “petrol gauge” water indicator) and the leak.

Thank you for an exceptional after sales service.
