In most cases, the genies use your utensils/equipment. For certain dishes, the genie may use a special pot/pan and bring his/her own.

Please show the genie around the kitchen, so he/she can familiarize with the essentials like pots/pans/kitchen equipment/spatulas/cleaning supplies/salt/sugar/oil.

An appointment is minimum 1.5 hours. And depending on the number of dishes or complexity of the dish, it may go up. We will let you know if the appt will run over the 2-hour time.

It means the genie will arrive at your home by 4 pm to cook your meal & will finish up around 6 pm.

You do not need to stay in the kitchen while the cooking appt is going on. But please feel free to engage in a few minutes of conversation, (by following social distancing) the genies may appreciate it as well. It is their first time in your home & it may help them to feel welcome.

The prices are all inclusive (ingredients and labour). We recommend you tip the Genie if you had a good experience. To tip the genie you can give cash or please reach out to us so that we can charge the tip to your card.

The pricing includes everything (labour and materials). No added charges, no surprises. We encourage a tip if you are happy with the work of the Genie. The tip is not included in the pricing and can be paid once the order has been cooked for you. The tip is optional.
