For millions of Americans, meal kits are essential to cooking. Cardboard boxes arrive daily on subscribers' doorsteps, containing pre-packaged ingredients in exact proportions, ready to be chopped or sautéed according to carefully illustrated recipe cards. But critics say meal kits are just lazy—you pay a premium to have someone else go to the store for you and then prepackage all those ingredients. Fans of meal kit services say nobody has time to go to the store in 2018. What do you think?

Many food trend experts say the appeal of skipping the grocery store run doesn't make sense financially.

Sure, these kits save time spent in the grocery store, and take the work out of meal planning, but you pay a premium for that convenience. 

Others say enough with the judgments! 25 percent of Americans purchased meal kits in 2016, and that number has only risen in the last two years. Calling people who subscribe to meal kit services "lazy" is like calling people who don't bake their own bread or make their own pasta "unmotivated." Times have changed, and the tools to make the food change with them. Microwaves and salad spinners aren't lazy, and neither is a Blue Apron subscription.
