That's not good. Well at least you got your money refunded. Did you track the shipment?

Who shipped them? Have you checked with the company?

I ordered some canisters on eBay that were shipped UPS about a year ago. When they didn't arrive, I called UPS. For some weird reason, they said they couldn't find my address (even though they had delivered stuff to me before), so they - get this - looked up my old address where I hadn't lived for four years and delivered the canisters there. It gets better. I went over to my old address and the person living there had opened the box and my canisters were sitting out on the porch. From the look of things, she was going to plant in them.

Things happen and it sure doesn't hurt to do as much follow up as you can.

And yes, I got my canisters back. I knocked on the door a couple times and when I got no response, I simply picked them up and took them. Of course, I told the landlord what I had done before I left.

Yes. My Smokey Joe and the cookware were shipped at the same time and were supposed to arrive the same day. The Smokey Joe arrived. It said that the cookware was on the truck for delivery but it never showed up. Perhaps the truck driver's wife is enjoying it.

I had no problem getting the company to refund my money.

Do you have a Costco nearby? They always have a selection of good deals.

No. There a couple of Walmarts within driving distance and that's about it.

I bought the 8 piece. I learned from a video that Tenspeed posted about pressure cookers that this set is higher quality that the set that didn't arrive. It's because the base on these is the same diameter as the sides of the pot. The set that didn't arrive had a smaller base and outward slanting sides. Big money is in the base. Having the same diameter base and sides makes for more equal heating.

I'm having it shipped (free) rather than picking it up. I despise going to Walmart.

Thanks, Andy.
