EveryPlate makes it really easy to pause your future orders in your account settings, without having to call customer support. That’s even the case if you purchased your meal box using EveryPlate’s special discount.
EveryPlate is a popular meal delivery service thanks to its low prices, but those low prices do come at a cost for some. Maybe you signed up only to find there wasn’t enough variety, or perhaps the meals don’t quite cater to your dietary needs.
If you’re looking for another affordable option, I highly recommend Fresh and Easy. With tons of quick-cook options, including oven-ready dishes and meal kits that may be even easier to cook than EveryPlate’s, the menu is packed full of crowd-pleasing recipes suitable for the whole family.
Now all you need to do is cancel your EveryPlate account. Luckily, that won’t take you very long at all!
Canceling your EveryPlate subscription is really easy. Unlike some other meal delivery services, it doesn’t involve having to speak to anyone, either on the phone or over email (though the option is there to do that, too). To cancel via the website, all you need to do is:
Log in. Enter your account information on the EveryPlate website.
Open up Settings. You’ll find this in the menu in the top-right corner. Then scroll down to Deactivate Account.
Click Cancel Anyway. On the next screen, EveryPlate will try and get you to stay. It will remind you of any offers available to you on your account or maybe even offer you an incentive. If it’s not enough to get you to change your mind, click Cancel Anyway to proceed.
Confirm your deactivation. Select the reason you’ve decided to cancel, then click Deactivate Plan.
Double-check dates. Remember, if you’ve canceled less than five days prior to your next delivery, you’ll still be charged for that order and will get one last box from EveryPlate. To make sure this doesn’t happen, be sure to cancel before 11.59 pm CT at least five days before your next delivery.
If you’d rather cancel your EveryPlate account on the phone, call the customer care line at (973) 210-4915. Before you call, ensure you have all your account information to hand, including the email address on file.
You can also use the live chat to terminate your subscription – again, you will need to confirm your full name and email address to do so. Simply type in “Cancel my account” and the chatbot will transfer you to a live agent.
Currently, EveryPlate doesn’t allow you to cancel through its mobile app, though you can still cancel by going to EveryPlate on your phone’s web browser.
Fresh and Easy, Home Chef’s line of quick and easy meals, makes dinner time even more convenient than EveryPlate’s straightforward meal kits. Ingredients come portioned, peeled, sliced, and ready to cook – all you have to do is assemble them. Our reviewer thought Fresh and Easy was great for working families.
There are several quick options at Fresh and Easy. You can choose from Fast & Fresh prepared meals ready to assemble and pop into the microwave to oven- and grill-ready dishes, as well as speedy 15-minute meal kits that can be quickly thrown together.
Your subscription unlocks the entire Home Chef menu. In addition to over 20 easy-prep meals, you can order more complicated meal kits including entrees from Home Chef’s gourmet Culinary Collection. And if you feel like a fancy meal but are pressed for time, check out Fresh and Easy’s Plus Kits.
You also get access to Home Chef’s Customize It feature. Just like Home Chef subscribers, Fresh and Easy customers can swap, upgrade, or double-up on the protein in many of the recipes – so if you don’t want ground beef in your Chile Cheese Quesadillas, you could pick ground turkey, chicken breast, or steak strips instead.
Fresh and Easy uses high-quality, fresh ingredients in its easy-to-follow recipes. Seasoned cooks or kitchen novices, will find Fresh and Easy provides a stress-free cooking experience that doesn’t skimp on quality of flavor.
If you’re feeding a big household, you’ll love Fresh and Easy’s 6-serving option. While many services only offer 2-serving and 4-serving options, Fresh and Easy, like EveryPlate, lets you order up to 6 meals of 6 servings every week.
With prices starting from $7.99 per serving, Fresh and Easy is not much more expensive than EveryPlate and gives greater flexibility. It makes a great meal delivery option for busy families and couples who rarely find the time to cook, let alone shop for groceries. Plus, if you want to try it out for even less, you can take advantage of our current deal – Get 18 Free Meals (50% off your first 4 boxes)!
HelloFresh gives you more plans to choose from than EveryPlate. HelloFresh’s Meat & Veggies, Veggie, Family-Friendly, and Quick & Easy plans are somewhat comparable to EveryPlate’s offerings, but it has 2 more to boot – Fit & Wholesome and Pescatarian.
It also has a larger weekly menu, with 50+ recipes per compared to EveryPlate’s 25+. While HelloFresh also has a good selection of classic American recipes, it offers more international meals. If you found EveryPlate’s selection a bit limited, you’ll appreciate HelloFresh’s wider range.
The Easy Prep, Easy Cleanup, and One-Pot recipes are great for newer cooks, as they require minimal skill and kitchen time, and there are more complex dishes to try once you’ve been cooking for a while. My colleague goes through the menu in detail in their HelloFresh review.
HelloFresh’s Marketplace offers more than just dinner. You get a selection of breakfasts, lunches, desserts, spices, bulk proteins, and fresh produce. There are many more options than you find with EveryPlate’s Add-Ons.
The HelloFresh website hosts over 2,500 recipes. It’s a great place to go to learn new cooking techniques and find suppertime inspiration. With recipes inspired by worldwide cuisines and clear instructions, you’ll expand your cooking horizons every time you visit.
HelloFresh also gives you more flexibility on its minimum number of orders. EveryPlate has a 3 meals per week minimum, whereas HelloFresh gives you a 2-meal option. If you only need meals 2 nights a week, HelloFresh can be a less wasteful option than EveryPlate. And if your family needs more food, HelloFresh also offers 6-serving and 6-meal options.
With meals starting from $$3.32 per serving, HelloFresh is more expensive than EveryPlate. (This isn’t surprising, as EveryPlate is the bargain meal service of the HelloFresh meal delivery empire). But if you found EveryPlate’s meal options failed to excite you, HelloFresh may well be worth the extra cost.
If you liked EveryPlate’s low prices, then you’ll love Dinnerly. But the menu is much bigger, with 100+ new recipes each week, including some vegetarian, low-carb, and low-calorie meals.
Dinnerly’s recipes are simple, requiring just 5 steps or less and using 6 or fewer ingredients. But limited ingredients don’t translate to boring dishes at Dinnerly. The recipes are easy to follow, but you’ll find many international dishes as well as an abundant selection of family-friendly meals. When my colleague reviewed Dinnerly, they found that while it focuses on simple dishes with fewer ingredients per recipe like EveryPlate does, Dinnerly gives you a wider range of cuisines.
Dinnerly features a Market for additional groceries and prepared meals. If you found EveryPlate lacking in add-on options, Dinnerly’s Market is the solution. You can easily enhance your weekly box with a variety of groceries and a modest selection of heat-and-eat meals, as well as some desserts that you won’t find at EveryPlate.
Dinnerly is committed to reducing its environmental impact as well as its prices. While many meal delivery services wrap each item separately in wasteful plastic, Dinnerly bundles its items together. Less plastic and paper in your weekly box means less waste for you to dispose of and more packaging savings that Dinnerly can pass on to its customers.
To save money further, Dinnerly sends its ingredients without recipe cards. You have to find the recipe on Dinnerly’s website and view it on your device while you are making supper.
Dinnerly’s flexible subscription starts at just $2.12 per serving. It offers a minimum of 3 meals for 2 people and a maximum of 6 meals for 4 people. (Unlike EveryPlate, Dinnerly does not offer 6-serving meals).
Marley Spoon is a great way to elevate your cooking skills. If you feel stuck in a culinary rut with EveryPlate, a Marley Spoon subscription will give you many opportunities to try a variety of global flavors and learn new cooking techniques. Our reviewer tried Marley Spoon at home and was impressed by the clarity of the recipes and the gourmet quality of the meals.
While some recipes may sound intimidating, Marley Spoon provides step-by-step instructions. Chef, cookbook author, and celebrity hostess Martha Stewart, who helps curate Marley Spoon’s meals, wouldn’t have it any other way.
Every week brings you over 100 new recipes, and there are dozens of menu labels. You’ll find Vegan, Vegetarian, Pescatarian, Kid Friendly, One Pot, and many more labels to help you find what you are looking for. You’ll find many cuisines ranging from Japanese, French, Middle Eastern, Italian, Latin American, Mediterranean, and many other options.
Marley Spoon also takes environmental responsibility seriously. It was the first meal delivery service to go 100% carbon neutral, and it includes clear, concise recycling instructions for all its packaging. You can even find meals marked with the Climatarian meal, showing they were produced and prepared with a low carbon footprint.
Some Marley Spoon recipes require a well-stocked pantry. You may find that your meal kit expects you to have white wine vinegar or a zester on hand. You can find the list of required ingredients and kitchen utensils on every recipe, so be sure to make sure you have everything on hand before your box arrives to save yourself an emergency shopping trip.
Every week you can order between 2 and 6 Marley Spoon recipes in 2-serving or 4-serving sizes. Meals start at $2.99 per serving, which is higher than EveryPlate but still very reasonable given the selection and quality of ingredients.

Canceling EveryPlate is super easy to do and it doesn’t require you to contact customer support at all. You just log-in to your account, open Plan Settings, scroll down and click Deactivate Account – that’s it!
There’s currently no way to cancel EveryPlate on the app. But don’t worry, it’s easy to do it from the website. I walk you through the whole process, including how to speak to an actual person if you want to cancel via live chat.
EveryPlate is a convenient and affordable service, but it doesn't focus primarily on healthy eating. If you're looking for a healthier alternative, Fresh and Easy is a top choice. They offer a wide range of low-carb and/or low-calorie meals, including a dedicated Fit & Wholesome plan that caters to your specific health goals.
You need to make any changes to your order, including canceling your subscription, at least 5 days before your next scheduled delivery, by 11:59 PM CT.
If you try to cancel your order after this time, you’ll still receive your next box, and the cancellation will only take effect the following week.
Yes, EveryPlate was started by HelloFresh in 2018 as a cheaper option for meal kits you make at home. But with our code, HelloFresh costs about the same as EveryPlate. It has more choices each week and a more fun, world-inspired menu.
Skipping a week with EveryPlate is just as simple as canceling. Log in to your account and you should be able to find the Skip this week button.
