Marley Spoon Review

Marley Spoon is bringing the joy of cooking into your home by delivering a variety of meal kits with trusted recipes and quality seasonal ingredients, making dinner a little easier (and a lot tastier).  Read on for our full Marley Spoon review and unboxing video.

Our Order

We ordered 4 portions of the Bacon Cheese Smash Burger, Pan-Roasted Steak & French Fries, and the Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin.


Quality and Quantity of Ingredients

All of our ingredients were fresh upon arrival and lasted until we cooked the last meal 5 days later.  We are a family of 3 and there was plenty of food for us.  These recipes could easily serve 4 adults.


The box, liner, and paper meal kit bags are recyclable.  The empty ice packs, cool pouch, and plastic bags Marley Spoon says can be recycled, but we do not recycle #4 plastics in our area.  I would be happy to have all of my ingredients in 1 bag or no bag at all versus all of the individual plastic bags reducing waste and potentially reducing costs.

Ease of Instructions

Instructions were easy to follow and the skill level required, in our opinion, would be entry-level.  The recipes do require prepping, chopping, and several pans, but the step-by-step instructions walk you through everything.  We loved the tip around putting the sheet pans in the oven while it is preheating so that the french fries come out nice and crispy.  This is something that we will continue to do with homemade fries and other crispy baked veggies.  See below for the Steak and Fries recipe.



All of the meals tasted great.  We especially loved the addition of taco seasoning to both the cheeseburger as well as the crispy breaded brussel sprout tots and will be using this great idea for burgers in the future.  The brussel sprout tots weren’t as crispy as we hoped, but we did have a bit of trouble coating them evenly.  The sauce for all 3 recipes was delicious and another recipe that we will be using in the future.

Would we order again?

We absolutely would!  The recipes from Marley Spoon were easy to follow, provided enough food to feed our family of 3 with leftovers, and tasted great.  We also love the variety of recipe choices and dietary options that Marley Spoon offers each week.  The only downside that I see is that Marley Spoon is in the mid-range for price, which could deter some people, but for the quality of the recipes and ingredients, it’s definitely worth a try!  Marley Spoon, like most meal kits companies, offers new customer promotions.  At the time of posting, new customers could receive $80 their Marley Spoon subscription using this link or you can always find up to date offers on the Meal Finds Marley Spoon page.
