We will ship your package at the expedited rate of your choice but will have to give you a quote first as the rates via USPS or UPS vary wildly!

Contact us via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) and we will quote you an expedited shipping rate.  We can then add it to your phone order or online order You can also call our toll free number (1 800 521 1176) in the US or 703 836 4435 outside the US. 


We ship worldwide, but oceans and borders make it a bit more complicated. So ignore the shipping table that we have slaved over, and contact us by email or fax.

La Cuisine will notify you of the shipping charge and tracking number via email. We cannot be responsible for customs charges once it crosses into your country. When you check out online, check the "In store pickup" field and we will contact you with a quote.

Surprise, surprise
This is our version of gift wrap: Items will be wrapped in our festive, but refined store tissue and put in our "signature" bag. More poofy tissue will be added along with a lovely ribbon and gift card. The best thing is that we do it free of charge. Really large items will require a little bit more imagination on our part, but we are willing.


You can get our elegant gift certificates in any amount and there is no expiration date for those indecisive recipients. We will include our brochure with a picture and image of the Cuisinettes and current Canine Security Dog with each gift certificate. There is no charge for mailing gift certificates.   We also have online gift certificates which are easy to send to recipients. They will simply use the code when they check out.

When phoning in  your order using your  in-store  gift certificate, simply give us the 4 digit code on your certificatel. Any difference will be charged to your credit card.  If there is an amount left over, you can use that on your next purchase.


We accept returned merchandise for credit if it shipped to us in salable condition within 30 days. If we have made a mistake we will rectify it at our expense.
