Blue Apron

Blue Apron

Blue Apron is a great choice for those looking to learn how to cook with a subscription box. Most of its recipes are fairly simple to cook, and come with detailed instructions to get the best result possible. 

The service's cuisine features a wide variety of food types, with ethnic and fusion dishes being a staple of the menu. Less adventurous customers can usually get more traditional dishes such as pasta and burgers every week. In general, we're very impressed by Blue Apron's selection. Customers can even pay an additional fee for premium meals that feature expensive ingredients such as salmon and steak. 

While the service does offer vegetarian options, there are no allergen-free options, and Blue Apron can't guarantee that any dish is completely allergen-free. Also, Blue Apron dishes often require more prep work than other boxes, and beginner chefs will tend to overshoot the service's time estimates.
