9 Best Meal Kit Delivery Services (2024): Blue Apron, Dinnerly, and More

Trying to choose the best meal kit delivery service? It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the options. Whether you’re going vegan, cooking for a family of six, or are a complete newbie in the kitchen, there’s probably a service that caters to your needs. Some meal kits provide ingredients paired with recipes, while others send groceries or premade meals. All of them are meant to make the process of planning and cooking meals more convenient.

I’ve spent a couple of years testing more than two dozen meal kits. Few are outright bad, so go with whatever seems like the best fit for your way of life. I’m an experienced home cook, and I don’t have dietary restrictions, but I looked for plant-based meals along with more omnivorous options. I also had help taste-testing from lifelong vegans, finicky children, and my cat (by accident). Taking into account the recipes, ingredients, ease of use, amount of packaging waste, and the fact that every home chef has different needs, I recommend the services below.
