Outdoor Chef | 3-Year Warranty

Outdoor Chef | 3-Year Warranty


The following terms of warranty and guarantee apply only if OUTDOORCHEF has not made a different agreement in writing with the customer outside these Terms & Conditions.


OUTDOORCHEF provides the customer with a warranty only covering the absence of defects in the Products within the meaning of Art. 197 of the Swiss Code of Obligations. OUTDOORCHEF shall only be liable for product characteristics specified by the customer in the context of his order if OUTDOORCHEF has expressly warranted them in writing.

Similarly, any claims for compensation by the customer are excluded within the legally permitted framework.


The term of the guarantee and DOA provisions (definition below) for the individual Products are communicated on the OUTDOORCHEF website at or can be requested from OUTDOORCHEF at any time by telephone.

Guarantee Claim

Guarantee claims must be asserted by the customer to OUTDOORCHEF in writing immediately after their discovery, but within 2 months at the latest, by sending the guarantee card or proof of purchase.

After expiry of the period of 2 months (complaint period), all guarantee claims against OUTDOORCHEF are excluded. For obvious, recognisable and outstanding defects, this complaint period begins with receipt of the Product. The customer is obliged to check the Product for defects immediately after receipt.

In the case of hidden defects, the period for giving notice of defects shall commence upon discovery of the defect.

If the Product was purchased in a non-functional state, i.e. cannot be put into operation after purchase (Dead on Arrival, "DOA"), the customer must return it to OUTDOORCHEF within 10 working days from the date of purchase, showing the relevant guarantee card or proof of purchase.

The Product will be replaced for the customer with an equivalent or comparable model from OUTDOORCHEF.

After the expiration of the period of 10 days from the date of purchase, no exchange will be made, but a repair will be carried out. Brands and Products for which the DOA provisions are excluded are excepted from this.

Guarantee cases and scope

The guarantee is valid from the date of purchase and is granted in the following cases, provided that there is no exclusion:

- 12 years on stainless steel burners*
- 12 years on all stainless steel parts*
- 12 years on die-cast aluminium parts*
- 12 years on stainless steel grills*
- 12 years on ceramic burners*
- 5 years on the enamelled sphere (base and lid)*
- 5 years on enamelled cast iron grate*
- Enamelling defects only before first use
- 2 years on all remaining manufacturing / material defects

*only valid in case of rusting/burning through for the models Davos, Arosa, Lugano Evo, Dualchef.
From the 6th to the 12th year 50% on spare parts costs for the enamelled sphere / cast iron grate (excluding transport costs).

Irregularities that are insignificant with respect to the functionality, colour differences in the enamelling or minor faults such as production-related contact points on the lower edge of the lid or on the suspensions are not considered to be defects.

Reasonable technical and design deviations from the details in brochures, catalogues and written documents and changes in models, designs and materials in the context of technical progress and further development do not constitute a defect either in fulfilment or the Product.

In the event of a guarantee claim, OUTDOORCHEF may, at its sole discretion and choice, repair or replace the damaged or defective parts or replace the Product altogether. In the event of a replacement, OUTDOORCHEF shall be entitled, at its own discretion and choice, to offer the customer a comparable model from OUTDOORCHEF, e.g. in exchange for a successor model. Insofar as the functionality of the Product is not impaired by a defect, the customer may also be offered appropriate financial compensation instead of a repair or exchange/replacement.

The guarantee is in any case limited to the value of the purchase price of the Product purchased by the customer.

Guarantee exclusion

The guarantee is excluded in the following cases:
