Healthy, freshly cooked meals served in under 20 minutes—without the prep or cleanup.

Seventy-one percent of our customers tried Plated or another meal kit before switching to Tovala—because a convenient meal shouldn’t be served an hour later.

“We tried every meal kit service there is, but they’re so much work. We found Tovala and it’s like the answer to our prayers.”
JOHN C.

Why do customers choose Tovala over Plated?

When you arrive home after 6:00 p.m., the last thing you want is to spend the next 20 minutes meal prepping (followed by another 20 standing idly by the stovetop). Our chefs prepare healthy meals from real, fresh ingredients, delivered ready-to-heat to your front door.

No chopping. No assembly. No cleanup. No fuss.

“I’ve been on PeachDish, Purple Carrot, HelloFresh, Blue Apron, and Plated with my wonderful wife preparing the meals. These meals are as good of quality without the prep or cleanup. It gives us another hour together every night. I'm glad we gave it a shot”
WEST C.

How it works

With Tovala, there’s no recipe cards or step-by-step instructions to follow. Just unpack and scan your meal, and let your oven do the rest of the work for you.

Tovala delivers on what other meal kits promised:
convenience.

There’s nothing easy about making a meal from scratch. While meal kits handle the shopping, Tovala checks off each stage of the cooking process—down to the dishes.

  • Part of a flexible meal plan ranging from 3 to 12 meals per week
  • A zero-hassle service you can skip, pause, or cancel at any time
  • Individually portioned rather than served family style
  • Available gluten free, high protein, and vegetarian, eliminating the need for substitutions
  • 400–800 calories, fitting perfectly into your healthy lifestyle
