Cooking has always been my passion. So, am always ready to try out new ideas and recipes. Lately, I have come to appreciate meal kit services. Though you have to pay for the subscription, they just make it easy to cook new meals. Furthermore, you don’t have to sacrifice your time to rush to the market to source fresh produce. You also get the ingredients pre-portioned and ready.
On one occasion when I was browsing the internet, I came across Terra’s Kitchen Coupons on Coupon Cause. The discount promised by the coupon was not an easy one to turn down. Being the adventurous person that I always am, I tried to give it a go. I am so glad that I did. Based on personal experience, here are 5 things you should know about the meal kit service:
1. Wide Meal Selections
At the time of signing up, there were more than 50 tasty recipes on Terra’s Kitchen to choose from. This is quite impressive. What’s more impressive though is the fact that they don’t just offer dinner selections. They also have selections for breakfast and desserts. I was particularly impressed with the idea that the ingredients are delivered fresh. They are sustainably sourced and very nutritious. The other impressive thing is that they have recipes from around the globe. You can order Asian, Italian, American, and Spanish meals. The kit will come with everything you need to prepare the meals as expected.
2. Cooking Made Easy
If there’s something that sets Terra’s Kitchen apart, it has to be its amazing recipes. The recipes come colored with simple-to-follow instructions. This is not all. They are accompanied by pre-measured and ready-to-use fresh ingredients. Actually, you’ll find some ingredients pre-portioned. This is meant to save you time. On average, it takes 15-30 minutes to prepare Terra’s Kitchen meals.
Besides, you have to decide on the order size that you want depending on your family and how often you would like to prepare the meals. I can’t forget to mention the service itself. The site is quite user-friendly. From the sign up to the menu updating, everything is done with simple clicks. You have the option to update your menu selection whenever you feel like it.
3. Individual Meal Pricing and Free Shipping Advantages
Though most people generally argue that Terra’s Kitchen meals are expensive, it’s important to note that it doesn’t apply to everything. As a matter of fact, meals are priced individually. On average, you pay $2-$18 per serving. Of course, you pay more for expensive ingredients. After browsing through the site, I discovered that breakfast is the most affordable option. For instance, you can get a week’s plan for only $70.
In case it’s the first order, then you don’t have to pay for the shipping. They also offer free shipping for subsequent orders that are above $100. Considering that they have a $75 acceptable minimum order limit, it’s easier to get to the $100 mark so as to enjoy free shipping. In case you don’t, then you only need to pay $5.99 to have your order shipped.
4. Separate and Eco-Friendly Packaging
If there are two things that I consider important when I make online orders are hygiene and less garbage. I don’t like it when items, especially food supplies, are packed together. This is a risk for cross-contamination. I am glad that Terra’s Kitchen shares this viewpoint. When the order is delivered, the ingredients come packed separately to prevent any contamination.
This is not the only good part. The packaging is eco-friendly. It means that you don’t have to worry about more garbage at home since the containers are 100% recyclable. Externally, the containers look really good in all sense. The shape is great and so is the appearance. Internally, the containers also look sanitary as far as I can tell.
5. Canceling Can Be a Problem
Lastly, there are so many good things to be said about Terra’s Kitchen but unfortunately, the canceling process is not one of them. When you visit the support page, they indicate that you have to click on ‘cancel’ which is a green command. The problem is that the function no longer exists. So, I guess it’s time the service upgrades its canceling process.
After thinking for a while, I was only left with one option and that was to email customer support. Luckily, they responded within 5 minutes and my order was canceled. So, I can comfortably confirm that they have great customer support. I wished I had known this early not to waste time trying to think about how to have my order canceled.
Honestly, Terra’s Kitchen has more to offer when you are looking for simple, tasty, and unique recipes. Though meal prices are a little higher than most meal kit services, the whole food preparation experience is worth it. So, if you are looking for adventure in the kitchen and are not afraid to spend more once in a while, Terra’s Kitchen is worth considering.
