The 13 Best Meal Kit Delivery Services for Every Kind of Cook


If your Grubhub receipts are piling up, you might want to consider a slightly more hands-on food delivery experience: meal kits. Since Blue Apron pioneered meal kit delivery services, companies have cropped up all over the internet touting great meals that even the most amateur chefs can easily make. Each of these services promise something different ó whether it be diet-specific meals or pre-prepped ingredients. We looked into some of the best meal kit delivery services and narrowed it down to the 13 best.

What to Consider When Choosing a Meal Kit Delivery Service

Your Lifestyle: These services typically deliver every week. If your weekly routines are varied, youíll want to find a delivery service that makes it easy to pause and resume delivery (and doesnít charge you for changes).

Your Tastebuds: All of these services are going to deliver solid ingredients and meals. Some of them may put a premium on expanding customerís palates, while others might prioritize easy-to-make staples. Browse each optionís sample menus to get a sense of how varied the meals can be.

Your Fridge Space: These meal kit delivery services send out pre-portioned ingredients for each meal. That means you end up with a lot of packages and a limited amount of space in your fridge. The same can be said for services that offer pre-made food.

Your Budget: These delivery services do make getting food on the table easier, but itís important to note that most kits, from a cost per serving perspective, work out to about as much as ordering takeout would, but with the added benefit of cooking the food yourself, thus knowing what youíre eating. Let these services jumpstart your passion for cooking, but theyíre not the be-all-end-all for meal prep.

1. I tried Home Chef a couple of years ago

The portions were small, so I didn't continue with it. The introductory offer made it OK, but I wouldn't have continued with it without a substantial discount. Back then, all of the meal kit places offered free months, etc, some really good deals. Now, they offer the discounts much more slowly.

My local supermarket was able to compete by offering meal-in-a-bag entrees, beef, pork or chicken along with veggies for either stir fry or oven cooking of the whole package. In the good old days (a few weeks ago) I used to pick up the discounted ones that were at pull date. Got some good cheap meals that way.
