Our Products have parts which may wear over time, and are designed to wear in preference to other parts of the Products. Examples include but are not limited to sponges, microfibre cloths, and removable brush heads.

You are responsible for inspecting and replacing any components and consumables that become worn or damaged prior to each use.

Consumables and spare parts are available from us, and if you require replacement parts, please visit our website at www.coolfrank.co, and if you cannot find what you need then contact us.

Modifying any Products may be UNSAFE, and will void the warranty.

The Products are not self-cleaning, and need to be cleaned and maintained like other kitchen tools and utensils, which come into contact with food.

PRIOR TO EACH USE: you are responsible for each of the following things:

Ensure that the Products are clean; and

Replace any Consumables which have worn out, are contaminated, or are damaged.
