What Is Plated All About?

If you want to get chef quality meals delivered right to your door then you should check out Plated! All you have to do is take your high quality fresh ingredients that Plated sends you each and every week and turn them into your delicious dinners.

How Does Plated Work?

There are different meal plans for different families and each plan ranges in price, but the average price is around $10 per meal. One of the best benefits of Plated is that you have the option of adding a dessert to your order.

Each month you are able to log into your online account and view the recipes that will be sent out each week. Select individual weeks where you would like to receive your package of ingredients shipped to you on a specific day of the week. For example, if you select Tuesdays, then you will receive your order every Tuesday.

If you want to skip a week of service all you need to do is click the “skip this week” button inside your account and you will not be charged.

What Does Plated Serve?

Plated has many meal types that accommodate many dietary needs. Most of the recipes seemed fairly healthy when we placed our first order.

We love our desserts in this house and are sweets so this is an option that we definitely had to test out which many of the food prep services to not offer.

How Does The Plated Order Arrive?

Everything that you need comes inside the Box they ship to your doorstep including the instructions and all the ingredients. All ingredients are clearly labeled and easily understood to which recipe that they belonged to.

All the packaging was 100% fully recyclable which always makes us happy. The ingredients were packed with ice-packs and arrived fresh and cold. The packs were recycle as well! Bonus points!

Wow! This one was a delicious treasure! The pull-apart bread was amazing and so was the eggplant Parmesan.

Only bummer was that one and close to a half of our three eggplants were bad upon arrival. We cooked this recipe one day after receiving our package too.

Sad face….

We will go to the store to make this one ourselves again.

Plated Review

What we liked about the Plated meals is that it allows us to eat delicious dinners with ingredients that we wouldn’t usually grab from the grocery store.

Well the price may not seem as reasonable as going directly to the store yourself you have to keep in mind the shipping as well as the high-quality ingredients and recipes that plated offers you.

For anyone that is looking to save a ton of money on ingredients this may not be the best option for you. But for somebody who’s into cooking high quality mules with high-quality ingredients in plated may be a great option for you to look into.

To get started with the plated food prep service it’s very simple and all you need to do is head to their site , choose your meal plan and get signed up.

Plated ships to most of the United States and within the next couple days you can have your first free meal sent right to your doorstep

In the end we thought Plated was a little over priced for the meals that we received in our order. I’m happy we tried them especially for the eggplant dish! But after ordering, cooking and tasting many meal prep services we suggest checking out our top recommended service Green Chef!
