What is Factor?

Factor, also known as Factor75, delivers ready-prepared meals to your doorstep. There’s not only no planning and shopping, but there’s no prepping, cooking or even cleanup either! You just pierce the plastic cover with a fork a few times and throw it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. The meals are fresh, not frozen, and taste delicious. I was amazed at the quality of the food. It honestly tasted like food that I’d get in a nice restaurant. I was impressed!

Who is Factor best for?

Factor is best for single people, or people who don’t have time to cook or choose not to cook. It’s also great if you are on a different diet than the rest of your family. For example, if you want keto meals, but the rest of the family wants to eat regular foods, you can just buy your own meals.

What are some examples of Factor meals?

Here are a few meals that we enjoyed.

Mushroom, Tomato & Goat Cheese Cavatappi

Factor will save you lots of time because you don’t have to plan, grocery shop, cook or clean up. Dinner is ready in minutes and cleanup just involves recycling the tray.

The meals come in a big cardboard box with ice blocks and insulation to keep them cold. The individual meals come in a plastic tray (#1 plastic) with a plastic film on top. The tray is then in a cardboard sleeve where the instructions and nutrition information are printed.

Can I recycle Factor packaging?

The cardboard box is curbside recyclable. The insulation in my box was also made of paper and was curbside recyclable. The gel inside the ice block is not recyclable and should be thrown in the trash. You can melt the ice block, cut the plastic and dump the gel into the trash. Then you can recycle the plastic ice block liner if they recycle #4 plastics in your area. The plastic food trays and cardboard sleeves are curbside recyclable.

Does Factor have dietary options?

Factor has the following dietary options that you can select in your settings.

  • Chef’s Choice – A variety of meals
  • Keto - Low carb, high fat meals
