Hate Cooking? This Is What Meal Delivery Is Like!

Last Updated: Jan - 30 - 2023

Let’s be honest. It’s not like everyone loves to cook. Sometimes, all you want when you get home in the evening, hungry from a long day of work, is to eat food, not cook it. The problem gets even worse if you want to eat higher-quality foods because they require hours upon hours of work for someone who is actually well-versed in cooking, let alone someone who isn’t. If any of this sounds familiar, don’t worry, because you’re not alone. Many people don’t like cooking, but still, they need to find a way to eat proper food even though we aren’t master chefs.

Today, we’ll see what it’s like to order from two of the best meal delivery services when you don’t like cooking.

Let’s Start with Some of the Best Meal Delivery Services

To make things simpler, I went for two of the most well-known and respected names in meal delivery: Home Chef and Sun Basket. These two services have been battling it out for the top spot in our rankings for years, so it’s definitely a safe choice.


Ordering from both services was easy enough. Before ordering, be sure to check out their available promotions. As of this writing, I was able to grab $80 off for my Home Chef order and $70 off my Sun Basket order. Not bad. Visit our home

For my maiden dishes, I went for Home Chef’s Steak with Garlic Butter and Sun Basket’s Penne with Sardinian Sausage Sauce.

Unpacking My Order

Both packages arrived on time, with all of the ingredients neatly packed in separate plastic wraps. While I have my reservations on the amount of plastic used here, it’s definitely convenient and makes for a very clean time in the kitchen. In any case, it turns out that using meal delivery services actually reduces pollution anyway.

Cooking My Dishes

This was the part I dreaded the most. For someone who doesn’t like cooking, steak and pasta seemed out of my league. However, in the end, I was completely mistaken. The recipes were short, concise, and made everything very clear – even for someone like me. I never realized how simple it is to cook steak until now. Even the Penne and sauce were far simpler than I had anticipated.

What I Learned

The problem I had with cooking wasn’t the cooking itself (my steak was delicious) but everything that surrounds cooking. I had no idea how to plan a meal, buy it and cook it on my own. I needed someone to guide me on the right path, and Home Chef and Sun Basket were perfect for the job. I had all the ingredients and directions to have a gourmet meal ready in under 30 minutes.
