What’s Unique About HelloFresh?

EveryPlate keeps prep time and cost down to a minimum, so everyone can enjoy it. The recipes are simple, take less than 30 minutes to prepare and are filling and delicious—so even the pickiest eaters can find meals they’ll enjoy.  

Earth friendly

In addition to caring about its customers, EveryPlate cares about the environment. That’s why it packages all of your meal delivery kits in 100% recyclable materials. You can toss the boxes in the recycling bins at your curb. Empty the gel from the ice packs, and those can be recycled too.

Flexibility

Most meal kit delivery services require you to lock in a specified number of weeks you’re committed to ordering with them for. EveryPlate lets you skip a week (or 2, or a month, or whatever). There’s no commitment and no penalties for not ordering consistently.

How It Works

EveryPlate offers 2 meal plans—dinner for 2 and dinner for 4. Both plans come with 3 meals per week, with 2 or 4 servings each night. Meanwhile, ordering from EveryPlate is broken down into the 3 D’s, and it really is that simple.

  1. Decide: Choose the meals you want to eat the following week. Put them in your cart and order. If you are new to the EveryPlate site, you’ll need to set up an account and provide your payment information, but once you place an order, EveryPlate will remember your details for faster future orders.

  2. Deliver: Meals are delivered to your doorstep. Choose from several delivery dates for the most convenient time. You won’t have to be home to receive the meal kit since it will be packaged with ice packs.
  3. Devour: Once you get your meal kits, you can throw together a hearty meal in under 30 minutes. Bon appetit!

Delivery is generally Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, but location can change that. EveryPlate tailors its packaging by climate and season, so your food will stay its freshest all year long.

Your meal kit will come with pretty much all of the ingredients you’ll need to make a tasty meal (sans things like salt, sugar, and oil), a recipe that is broken down into ingredients, step-by-step instructions, and nutrition information about each dish. EveryPlate guarantees to keep meal preparation, cooking time, and cleanup down to a minimum. With 6 simple steps, you’ll have your dinner cooked and ready to enjoy.

Meal Options

EveryPlate offers 5 new meal options to choose from every week. Look at the weekly menu to get a glimpse of which meals are available this week. For example, this week’s delectable menu includes:

  • Herbed Chicken Cutlets with Roasted Mashed Potatoes and Zucchini
  • One-Pan Beef Tacos with Tomato-Jalapeño Salsa and Lime Sour Cream
  • Sausage and Bell Pepper Pasta with Cheesy Breadcrumbs
  • Steak Frites with Roasted Garlic Butter and Green Beans
  • Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry with Broccoli and Jasmine Rice

As you can see, the meals are jam-packed with nutrition, flavor, and variety. The one downside to EveryPlate’s meal options is the lack of variety. Five meals is not a lot to choose from compared to other meal kit companies. That being said, since you’re only ordering 3 meals each week, and the meal options are so colorful, it’s likely that you’ll be able to build an exciting menu for yourself without issue.
