Last week was my first week that I used Blue Apron. I got the 2 person plan which gives me 3 recipes a week and all I can say is that I am now hooked!!!

I have always loved cooking and with Blue Apron they have removed the most stressful part for me... deciding what to cook and getting the ingredients.  I don't have to shop for groceries, I don't forget ingredients, and the directions on the recipe cards  make sense and are easy to follow.

There is a bit of work preparing the meals but I find that part of cooking fun after a stressful day at work. I can't wait to see what we get this week, my delivery is tomorrow.

Pros
Great meals, Low cost
Cons
None that I can see
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I really like what Blue Apron has to offer. Fresh ingredients and easy to follow and understand recipes with photos on nice cards that can be reused. We have a full binder of them now.

It's fun to review and select from the 6 options every week for delivery. Our delivery has never been late or damage and the ingredients have always been cold and fresh. My husband and I are in our late 60's and retired so are always home for the delivery. I have seen some complaints online on delivery for other meal kit services but we have not had any issues with Blue Apron, but us being always home might be part of the reason for this.

I have always enjoyed cooking from scratch and my husband of almost 50 years look forward to these meals as a treat as they are recipes and food combinations we would not normally try. We have been using it for over 9 months now and plan to continue.
Pros
Different meals every week. Makes cooking fun.
Cons
None really.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I first tried Blue Apron last month with a  Groupon I purchased for 3 x 2-person meals. I am on week 4 and I am always excited to get our next delivery and have enjoyed the meals I have cooked from their recipes and ingredients.

I do have a few small issues though. I bought the Groupon for the week of meals and I didn't realize that I would need to signup for a subscription at Blue Apron before I could get the meals. Customer service told me I could cancel as long as I did it before being billed for the next weeks meals. So I thought that was okay but still it required an extra step for me. I understand their logic behind it to retain customers but if you are trying to get people to try the service it would be good if they allowed you just to order one week's worth of meals with out the subscription. I almost didn't try it for this very reason.

The packaging Blue Apron works well and keeps the meals cool even if left out for a number of hours which happened to me when I was away. I wish the packaging wasn't as wasteful in terms of the cold packs, insulation, plastic bottles, and plastic wrap but everything for the most part is recyclable.

Where Blue Apron really stands out though is the recipes and ingredients. The meats and vegetables sent are of high quality and fresh and the recipes are very tasty.  I was getting bored with my own cooking as I found it difficult to find recipes I like. In the 4 weeks I have been using Blue Apron I haven't had a meal yet that I didn't really enjoy.


Pros
I enjoy the variety of recipes
Cons
Packaging
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Blue Apron has been really good. We haven't had any missing ingredients. I have a subscription for 3 meals for 2 people a week and the portions are usually just right. If it doesn't work for you, you can always add extra chicken or potato like we had to when we had someone over for dinner.

Blue Apron always has delivered us high quality ingredients with a clear and detailed step by step color recipe page. Most of the recipes I have never made before so it is a treat to true something new, especially if you enjoy cooking like I do but never have the time to research recipes and make sure you have all the ingredients on hand. Most of the meals do have green vegetables so for families with kids (ours are all grown up) you may want to make sure they are not picky eaters.
Pros
Fresh food and great meal plans
Cons
Prep time can be over 30 mins sometimes
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I am a young professional who lives by themselves in a large city and am really busy with work. I am usually at work almost 12 hour every day during the week and have no real time for myself besides working out . Blue Apron is ideal for me as I don't have to think about grocery shopping nor plan what to have for dinner.

I like how it gets delivered weekly to my building and I don't have to be home. My door man holds onto the box for me until I return.

I am currently getting the two person plan as each meal feeds me 2-3 times. I take the leftovers for lunch. It feeds me for 6 to 7 days.  All I need to buy now is breakfast and snacks. Plus I have lost 8 lbs only after a few months.

The meals is also exceptional. The recipes are really tasty and the quality of the food in the packages is high.

Blue Apron is definitely worth a try if you are thinking about it. 


Pros
Very good over all meal service
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
