How What A Crock Works

At What A Crock, meals are prepared using fresh, natural ingredients, trimmed, chopped, and browned by pro chefs and frozen fresh to preserve the flavors and nutrients. All the meals you receive are ready to go into the slow cooker so the effort you have to invest into making your meals is the same as in the case of frozen dinners, just with better, more delicious results.

You can decide between one-off orders and regular deliveries with one of its 3 meal plans. You can cook for 1-6 people and order 1-4 meals per week with its meal plans or as many meals as you want with the single-order option.

What A Crock meals can be delivered to your home or you can pick them up yourself in one of the company’s stores if you happen to live nearby. Regardless of which ordering option you choose, you get to enjoy great flexibility. You can change your meal plan, skip a delivery or end your subscription whenever you wish.

What Makes What A Crock Different

What A Crock team has come up with a creative way to allow you to spend virtually no time in the kitchen and still enjoy a delicious, homemade meal, created with the help from professionals. It offers everything from entrées, soups, and sides to dips and desserts, so you get to find out what desserts made in a slow cooker look and taste like (awesome – if you ask us).

Apart from offering an abundance of meal choices, it also gives you plenty of room to customize your orders and adjust your deliveries to your schedule. You can order only once or as often as you want. You can also opt for a meal plan that suits your needs. You can order only a couple of meals or a whole bunch of them. You can have your meals delivered, stop by a store and just pick what you like or place an order and pick it up a day or two later, once it is ready. Plus, you get to save money by buying meal bundles or opting for meals that are currently on sale.

What A Crock also offers meals designed in accordance with different special diets. You can purchase vegetarian or vegan meals or you can choose from its selection of gluten-free dishes.

If you need a nice gift for someone and you need it fast, you can always opt for the What A Crock gift card. You can choose the value of the gift card, with the values ranging from $10 to $200, and purchase as many cards as you want at once.

Meals And Recipes

In this section of our What A Crock review, we will offer a more detailed view of the meal plans and the company’s menu, so you could get a better sense of what is waiting for you in the What A Crock kitchen. Let us start with the plans.

What A Crock meals

The 3 meal plans at your disposal differ in the number of servings per meal and the number of meals per week. The 1-Person plan allows you to receive 3 or 4 single-serving meals per week. The 2-3-People plan allows you to receive 2, 3 or 4 meals per week for 2 hungry people or 3 people with average appetites. The 4-6-People plan is designed for families and people who love throwing dinner parties. It brings you 1, 2, 3 or 4 meals per week with 4-6 servings per meal, depending on the appetite.

Although the plans are referred to as weekly plans, they are not shipped weekly. With the 1-Person plan, the 2-3-Person plan including 2 or 3 meals per week, and the 4-6 Person plan including 1 meal per week, you get deliveries on a monthly basis. If you order 4 meals per week with the 2-3-Person plan or 2, 3 or 4 meals per week with the 4-6-Person plan, your orders are shipped bi-weekly.

If you opt for a one-off order, you have the whole menu at your disposal and you can decide which meals you want to cook and order as many portions of the same dish as you want. If you are not sure how many portions you need, the company offers a handy portions chart that allows you to easily figure out how many people you can feed with 1-4 portions of its meals.

What A Crock meals

When purchasing individual meals, you can take a look at the full menu or browse by categories. The categories include beef, chicken, pork, seafood, vegetarian and vegan, and gluten-free meals, as well as soups and sides, dips, desserts, and meals that are on sale. There are dozens upon dozens of meals at your disposal, so you can easily find something you want to try.

The company also offers particularly affordable weekly meal bundles, which include 5 dinners and an appetizer. You can order for 1-6 people. The bundles at your disposal include Crock Classics, Trip To Italy, Meatball Madness, No Gluten For Me, and Healthy Eating.

We would like to emphasize that the menus differ depending on whether you are ordering online and having the meals shipped to you or you are picking up the meals at a store. At all times, you can view both the shipping menu and the selection meals available at each of the company’s stores.

Pricing

In this section of our What A Crock review, we will take a look at its prices. Here is how much the meals cost, depending on the ordering option you choose. If you are purchasing meals individually, each meal comes at its own custom price. However, we can say that the price per portion ranges from just $3.99 to $12.99.

With the weekly bundles, the price depends on the number of people you want to cook for. The 1-Person bundles cost $7.85 per serving, the 2-3-People bundles cost $5.88 per serving, and the 4-6-Person bundles are the most affordable ones and cost $5.44 per serving.

What A Crock pricing

As far as the meal plans are concerned, the prices depend on both the number of meals and the number of servings per meal. The 1-Person plan costs $27.49 per week if you are ordering 3 meals per week and $33.99 if you are ordering 4 meals per week. The price per week with the 2-3-People plan is $33.99 for 2 meals per week, $49.99 for 3 meals per week, and $64.99 for 4 meals per week.

    Hands down, the best meals in PA. Not that expensive either.
  • Submitted By Freddy Roberts on 08/03/2017
    I hate that the meals are frozen, they don’t taste the same as the ones I make from fresh ingredients. I’ll give them one more shot, but so far, not impressed.
