Thanks for the link.

Why the downrating on my question? Am I not supposed to ask about the reputation of online sellers? If not, then I won't.

@clawback: Unfortunately, there are those who pose questions here w/embedded links to sites that they own or have a financial interest in (e.g. referral points or $, clickthrough $ etc.), or are acting as shills or sock puppets to drive traffic to a particular site.
Since you just joined deals.woot and immediately asked this question w/a link to the site in question, it is assumed you are part of this scenario. This is an online community and there are certain rules that must be followed for everyone's benefit.

That does not make sense. I have the same question and googled it and this person asked what I also want to know. If something seems too good to be true, I am very suspicious.

I too saw House Cooker online and they did have great deals. I too would like to know if they are a reputable site. Googled them and was directed here.

I also found that Housecooker.com prices were lower than any other online merchants. I ordered something and then canceled it due to the suspicious nature of the website. Also I did notice that the physical address given in San Francisco area but they even didn't charge the CA state tax at the check out because I'm pretty sure that no one would sell the products within CA without a state tax unless otherwise the product coming from outside California where the CA tax is not applicable.

BEWARE! I made the mistake of ordering from House Cooker and it has been nothing short of a nightmare. I purchased a cook set on August 30, 2014. After 10 days of showing "awaiting fulfillment" and multiple emails to their customer service, I have filed a dispute with my credit card company. They have a phone number on the website which is nothing other than a generic voice mail. They sent me a tracking number finally today..Guess what ? It's for an order that was already delivered in CA. I live in Florida ! I am filing a report with the BBB as well. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra 10.00 and get it from a reputable business.

Update....To why this company is a fraud, 14 days later, still no product, never any response to my 6 emails and 2 phone calls to a number that isn't actually a business and a tracking number provided that doesn't even exist. BBB has been informed and a case in pending. If you look at the BBB and what little information I could find on this "so called company" the feedback is about the same "awaiting fulfillment, never received product, company doesn't have a Customer Service or one that responds, etc...." This company shouldn't be in business.
