Quickest to Make

Gobble offers a great recipe kit for people looking for a low-hassle, quick way to make meals at home.

  • Less than 5 minutes of prep-work—far less than other recipe kits we tried.

We think Gobble offers a great recipe kit for people who are looking for a low-hassle, convenient way to get into cooking meals at home. Their recipes are neither daring nor complicated, which is great for people who are just trying to make dinner and not become the next Master Chef.

Recipe Prep
Ingredient Prep

😍 You’ll probably need to pat some meat dry and chop a vegetable, but it’s way less prep than other meal kits.

Kitchen Gear

You’ll want a pan, baking sheet, knife, and other basic items. Nothing fancy needed (like a food processor or lemon zester).

Additional Ingredients

Have some cooking oil, salt, and pepper on hand.

Cooking
Recipe Clarity

Recipe cards are helpful and easy to follow, but have some room to improve.

Cook Time

⏲ Around 20 minutes—that’s the lowest time we found. (Gobble claims “kit to table in under 10 minutes” but that’s nonsense.)
