Expert Dinnerly Review 2019

In a nutshell: Dinnerly delivers affordable, family-friendly meals to your doorstep, that cost just $5 per portion. Each week, customers can choose among six new menu options. Although their service doesn’t cater to many dietary restrictions, the menu has meal favorites that the whole family can enjoy.

Overview

Owned by Marley Spoon, Dinnerly provides an easy, affordable option for cooking fresh meals throughout the week. Rather than focusing on fancy, foodie meals, Dinnerly tries to appeal to a wider base of customers by offering family-friendly meals at just $5 per serving. It's perfect for busy parents or those on a budget.

Because Dinnerly caters to a broader customer base, their meals don’t specialize in dietary restrictions or preferences like vegan, gluten-free, and so on. Although Dinnerly doesn’t have as much of a wide selection as other meal delivery services, customers can still get fairly priced, easy-to-make meals that even kids will enjoy.

Menu

Dinnerly takes a step away from the foodie-focused meal delivery services. Their menu appeals to a wider base of customers and consists of more approachable meals that the whole family can enjoy. That includes favorites like chicken alfredo, burgers, roast chicken, grilled cheese, soups, enchiladas, spaghetti and meatballs, and so on. Their menu doesn’t really cater to specific dietary restrictions like gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and so forth. Although the company does have vegetarian meals at times, you may only find one option every few weeks.

Each week customers can choose from six new dinner recipe options. Their menu includes a mix of different kinds of foods such as one-pot meals, poultry-focused, 30-minute meal prep, low calorie, and so on. However, with just six menu choices each week, Dinnerly can’t guarantee to have enough meals to meet dietary restrictions. In addition, Dinnerly currently doesn’t offer breakfasts, lunches, or desserts.

Delivery

As a meal delivery service, customers subscribe to receive a certain number of recipes each week. From the website, customers can choose from the weekly menu options. Dinnerly will ship the meal kits to your home which come with all the ingredients necessary. Insulated boxes with ice packs ensure that ingredients arrive fresh.

Keep in mind that Dinnerly doesn’t deliver nationwide. However, currently, the company ships to most parts of California, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Texas, Illinois, Texas, Iowa, Wisconsin, Georgia, Colorado, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, New York, Maryland, Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, and Florida.

Pricing

Whereas many meal delivery kits will cost $10 or more per serving, Dinnerly cuts that price in half. Customers enjoy home delivered meal kits for just $5 per person. Dinnerly has two plans available. The two-person plan includes two portions per recipe and three recipes per week. This includes $5 per portion plus $8.99 in shipping costs totaling $38.99 per week. Dinnerly also has a four-person meal plan. This comes with four portions per recipe and three recipes per week. Portions also cost $5 per serving plus $8.99 in shipping, totaling $68.99 per week.

Customer Support

Overall, customers will find it easy to sign up and manage their account. The Dinnerly website makes it easy for subscribers to update their account settings or delivery options right online. Customers can get in touch with support directly by email or phone. Their active social media pages like Facebook and Twitter keep customers updated on the latest recipes. For more information, the online FAQ has answers to basic questions.
