EveryPlate is a meal kit service that makes it easy for you to cook delicious and satisfying dinners at home. They offer a wide variety of recipes to choose from, with meals starting at just $4.99 per serving. Each recipe is easy to follow, with only a few simple steps and a minimal number of ingredients. When you select your desired recipes, all the necessary ingredients will be delivered straight to your door, along with physical recipe cards that provide step-by-step instructions.
EveryPlate operates on a subscription basis, but they also give you the flexibility to cancel your subscription at any time, before the delivery cut-off. EveryPlate is not an independent meal kit service, but is fully owned and operated by HelloFresh, a well-established meal kit company in the USA.
EveryPlate offers 20-22 recipes every week, which is less than some competitor providers but this still provides a variety of options for customers to choose from. Premium meal options are available for an additional $2.99 per serving.
There are typically around 6 different vegetarian meals offered each week, making it suitable for those following a plant-based diet, but the selection may be limited for those looking for 4 or 5 meals.
The recipes are rotated every 4-5 weeks, which means that favourites may reappear but it also suggests a relatively small set of overall recipes.
EveryPlate works on a subscription basis where you can choose your preference between Classic, Family, Flexitarian and Vegetarian, and between 2-6 people and 3-6 recipes per week.
EveryPlate has also recently added a feature similar to HelloFresh, where you can choose to customise your recipes at a small additional cost, like increasing the amount of protein source, change from sweet potato to white potato, upgrade your protein source (e.g beef mince to beef rump), add meat to vegetarian meals and add extra vegetables.
Ingredients & Preparation
EveryPlate doesn’t cater to special dietary needs such as keto, gluten-free, paleo, vegetarian, low carb or vegan, so this might not be the provider for you if you have a range of dietary requirements.
In terms of where the food comes from, most is grown/produced in Australia, but some ingredients are sourced internationally.
Delivery & Packaging
EveryPlate has expanded its delivery service to include a vast majority of New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia, previously they only delivered to major metropolitan areas on the East Coast.
EveryPlate delivers meals from Saturday to Wednesday, with delivery windows of either 12:00 – 07:00 or 09:00 – 18:00.
There is a flat fee of $9.99 for each box, and the price doesn’t change depending on how many meals you order.
There is no information on the website about the recyclable nature of EveryPlate packaging.
EveryPlate has good customer service, and they even have a dedicated app to manage your subscription on the website. Features on the app include:
- Selecting your meals each week
- Adjusting or skipping deliveries
- Accessing all your past/current/future recipes
- Changing delivery or payment methods
The only thing you can’t do on the app is change or cancel your subscription, that needs to be done on a desktop.
You can contact EveryPlate customer service via email, via an AI chat assistant on the website or, if AI can’t help, then you can be put through to a live agent.
EveryPlate has very competitive pricing. Here’s a quick breakdown:
- 3 meals: $48
- 4 meals: $60
- 5 meals: $70
- 3 meals: $80
- 4 meals: $100
- 5 meals: $120
EveryPlate is slightly cheaper than its competitor Dinnerly across all options, making it one of the best value meal kit providers in Australia.
Some of the common positive customer reviews of EveryPlate suggest the meals are delicious, easy and good for families, while also commenting on the generous sizing. Where EveryPlate could improve is with missing ingredients from boxes, issues with delivery and quality of some of the vegetables.
