EveryPlate Meals Reviews

We’ve tried EveryPlate meals several times now and have come to appreciate this meal kit service for the simplicity of the packaging, recipes, and ingredients.

With EveryPlate you can choose a plan for 2 or 4 people with 3, 4, or 5 recipes per week.  For our family of three, we select 3 recipes for 4 people and have plenty of food for each meal with some leftovers.

EveryPlate Meals Reviews: Packaging

When your EveryPlate box arrives you can put all of your meal kit ingredients in the refrigerator.

The boxes and separators are 100% curbside recyclable.  The gel ice packs should be emptied into the trash before recycling the outside plastic at a store that accepts #4 plastic (like plastic shopping bags).

The box liner is fully curbside recyclable, but the plastic packaging that individual ingredients come in is not always easily recyclable.

EveryPlate Meals Reviews: Ingredients

EveryPlate recommends storing all fresh produce, proteins, and dairy in the refrigerator and that meals should be cooked within one week of delivery.

It’s good to note that EveryPlate, like Dinnerly, ships ingredients “loose” (i.e. not packaged together by recipe) so you will have to read through the recipe cards to ensure that all of your ingredients are present.

EveryPlate Meals Reviews: Recipe Cards

The recipe cards are easy to follow, with 6 steps per recipe, and do come in your meal kit box.  The pictures along with the step-by-step instructions are nice to have and help you visually follow along.  One thing that we found missing from the recipe cards was the nutritional estimates for the meal including calories.

If you are using an app like Weight Watchers or Noom to track your meals having this information makes life a lot easier.  EveryPlate says that nutritional estimates per serving can be downloaded 5 days before your delivery by clicking on “View complete nutritional info” on each recipe detail page.

EveryPlate Meals Reviews: Meal Favorites

We’ve ordered EveryPlate several times and our favorite recipes are listed below!

  • Pepper Jack Stuffed Pork Burgers: We’ve tried this recipe several times and it has not disappointed!  We love the use of pork vs beef in the burgers and the cheese in the middle.  We also loved the “Southwest Spice” on the potatoes and will be making our potatoes this way in the future.  We did add baked broccoli to round out the meal with a green vegetable.
  • Beef Bahn Mi Bowls: This meal was easy to make and we loved the siracha crema and pickled jalapenos, which both added flavor and a nice spice to the dish.
  • Vietnamese Steak Bowls: These bowls, like the Beef Bahn Mi bowls, were delicious and super easy to make.  We marinated the beef overnight to give it even more flavor and used all of the siracha in the mayo for a nice kick.
  • Sriracha Pork Stir-Fry: We loved the cabbage in this meal as a tasty hidden veggie, the sweet soy glaze, and crunchy peanuts.
  • Southwest Pork Flautas: These flautas were crispy and very flavorful. I added black beans and peppers to this dish to boost the fiber and veggie count.  I will definitely make it again to change up taco night.

Overall, we’ve found EveryPlate meals to be simple and delicious.  The portion size for most meals is good and in line with other meal kit companies., but with some of the recipes, we did have to add a vegetable as there was only a main dish and one or no sides, but that was easy and cheap to do.

We’ve found the recipes to be very straightforward and easy to follow.

EveryPlate Meals Reviews:  Bottom Line

EveryPlate truly is “America’s Best Value Meal Kit” with servings priced at $4.99, everyone can bring convenient, home-style meals to their dinner table each week.  By using less packaging and fewer ingredients for each recipe they are able to offer meal kits with quality ingredients at a lower price.  It’s a win-win!

In addition to helping you save money, EveryPlate sends pre-portioned ingredients to cut back on food waste and each recipe can be made in 6 steps saving you time planning, prepping, and cooking.  Leaving more time for your family!

And while shipping is extra and compared to other meal kits the recipes aren’t as complex, you can’t beat the value and convenience that EveryPlate brings to your wallet and your kitchen.

Would we order again?  We would order EveryPlate again for the ease of recipes, simplicity of meals, and low cost when the menu is appealing.  With only 3 people eating we had plenty of food and for the cost and convenience, you can’t beat it.  Our family loves global flavors and we like to try more complicated recipes from time to time so for us, we will order from EveryPlate when the menu is interesting and will keep them in our meal kit rotation.

We recommend EveryPlate to anyone looking for an inexpensive meal kit with simple, no-frills recipes, anyone looking to save on meal kits, and anyone looking for an easy and affordable dinner solution.
