You use potatoes too much, you should include sweet potatoes instead and also have some low carb/paleo options. Also more organic produce specially meats. I dis not order for next week for this reason.

Have tested now 2 weeks / 6 days. I like the idea, but what I don't like is that many ingredients are coming from the cheap sources. Last time minced meat was from Italy/ Netherlands. Today the smoked salmon from Poland, turkey: Poland, sugar beans: Kenya, mushrooms: Lietauen... Also packing was done wrong: as cold air is going down, the cold packs should be packed upmost, but now they was under, so the top of meat etc. was quite warm. I can not trust the quality of products, so we will cancel our contract and going back the shopping myself, so I know what I am eating.

Contrary to the name, retnemt's recipes are very complex and time consuming. They offer only 1 "easy" recipe every week, which sometimes still has many steps and several dish parts to be prepared (like fry bacon, cut and boil vegetables, cook rice, etc.). The other recipes, which are not the "easy one" take lots of cooking effort. The ingredients come pretty much row, to be cooked from scratch, and there's many steps with much peeling, cutting, grinding, frying, boiling. Last week it took me and my husband more than an hour to cook the "family" recipe while we both worked simultaneously. When we were done, the amount of pots and cutlery we used just for the cooking couldn't fit in our big dishwasher. We couldn't have used less pots because the recipe required cooking 4 separate parts - rice, vegetables, meatballs and sauce. The results are nice, and the food tastes nice too, but this is not the food box that would allow us to have a nice freshly cooked varied meal most weekdays so we can both cook and also spend time with the kids instead of preparing food and cleaning up the kitchen from the moment we come home to dinner and bedtime. I'm very sad and disappointed because retnemt came well recommended and with many positive reviews online. We want the diversity and the cooking experience but not to this level of complexity and time investment.
Additionally there's no option to change the white rice or pasta with grov rice and pasta for the recipes. If in the settings of your account specify that you don't want certain products included then the recipes are not tweaked with alternatives but just disappear from the available meals list for the week. So when i put in settings that i don't want white pasta, white rice, mushrooms and celery, I was offered only one option for a meal for the entire week because all the other recipes had one or another of these ingredients and they didn't have alternatives.
The way one selects the quantity is also very confusing. You can choose between the following options: 1-3 person, 2-4 person, 3-5 person. We are 3 people at home which means all 3 options apply to us? We've received 6 meals so far of the 2-4 person size and they all contained very different amount of the final cooked food, so after 6 meals it's still hard to judge if that is the correct meal size option for my family.
The food is also quite expensive. For example: a baked fish with sauce with pasta and brocoli on the side costs 200kr for 2-4 people, a salad with chorizo costs 150kr. For this money I can buy ready made oco meal for 4 in our local supermarked.
EDIT in response to the reply : dear Charlotte I have not misunderstood. I did not expect ready meals, I expect and want to cook (I have corrected my review to be more clear about our expectations). I want to cook it home just not for 2 hours every day. The recipes on your website do not state the cooking time, and apart from the quick meal one, it takes much longer than 20-40 minutes. You are misleading with your promises for an easy quick cooking experience in the half an hour range. It takes 2 manhours to cook your recipes. A professional chef might be able to do it in 40 minutes but not my family. Please test your meals with regular people. The review is quite fair as it reflects my experience with your meal box tested during 2 weeks. You have not addressed the problem with not being able to swap ingredients to the healthier brown versions, which means I either have to live with it or throw it out and replace with rice/pasta of my choice, which is food waste. You have not said anything about the strange way of selecting quantity or the fact that we get a very different amount of food for the same size category. You have said nothing of the price is it so expensive due to the recipe development or what? You claim you send the exact amount of food needed but you send more (e.g. the recipe needs 3/4 rødløg but you sent 1 rødløg).
I am now also disappointed by your reply and just expecting me to delete my honest review just cause you think it is not fair without addressing any of the points I make and dismissing my experience of cooking for hours. If you insist your recipe is possible to cook in half an hour, then I beg to differ and I can go ahead and paste your recipes
here so people can judge by themselves. Record a video of yourself alone in your home kitchen preparing the recipe in less than 40 minutes (no prior setup of the utensils and pots, no special tools and food processors) and prove me wrong (provided you are not a professional cook yourself) and I will correct the review.

Customer service was not able to follow up on my questions with an answer, they just referred to other areas of my delivery.

We love it. Great variety of dishes that offers many choices if it's something one happens to not like, very smart system regarding ingredient preferences and allergies, easy recipes to cook, and so far we've really liked how every dish tastes (and yes, there are some picky ones in this family). We're very happy!
