Getting dinner on the table has never been easier thanks to Amazon’s Echo. Now, you can simply ask Alexa to place an order and your meals will appear at your doorstep without ever having to log on to your computer or app.
Here’s How it Works
Setting up your Alexa to sync with your Chef’d account is simple. Follow these steps to get started.
Step 1: Enable the Chef’d Skill on Your Alexa
To order on Chef’d through Alexa, you’ll need to enable the Chef’d Skill first. This gives your Alexa the ability to sync up to your Chef’d account. Here’s how you enable the Chef’d Skill on your Alexa.
Open Your Amazon Alexa App
On your mobile device, open and sign in to your Amazon Alexa App.
Click on the Menu in the Upper Left Corner
In the upper left-hand corner, you’ll see three lines stacked on top of each other—that’s the menu button. Click on this icon to see all of your menu options.
From the menu, you’ll see a series of options. Click on the “Skills” option to get started.
Search for Chef’d
Once you’ve selected “skills” you’ll be taken to a page with all of the skills that are available for your Alexa device. Using the search bar at the top of the page, type in “Chef’d” and hit “search” to find our skill.
Tap the Enable Button
Once you’ve found our skill, click on the big blue button that says “Enable”.
Sign In to Your Chef’d Account
After you’ve selected “enable”, you will be asked to sign in to your Chef’d account. This will complete your set up and sync your Chef’d account with your Alexa device. You’re ready to start ordering!
Don’t Have the App?
Don’t worry! You can enable the Chef’d Skill from your computer. Simply click here to get started. Sign in to your Amazon Alexa account and tap on the “Enable” button and sign in to your Chef’d account.
Step 2: Ask for Recommendations
After the Chef’d Skill has been enabled on your Alexa, you can start placing orders. To get started, use one of the two commands above.
By saying, “Alexa, ask Chef’d for meal kit recommendations”, you will receive personalized recommendations based on your unique tastes. If you have not already filled out your flavor profile, you can do so here.
By answering a few simple questions based on your eating habits, you’ll have access to your own personal chef that will curate meal kits just for you. Just tell Alexa what serving size you’d like along with the date you would like to have it delivered and you’re all set.
Step 3: Get Everything You Need Delivered
Once you’ve told Alexa what you’d like, your order will be processed and packed—it’s that simple. Order dinner for two or enough to feed a party without lifting a finger.
What You Can Do with Alexa + Chef’d
There are so many things you can do with your Alexa that will make it easier than ever before to get dinner on the table. With the Chef’d Skill on your Amazon Echo, you can order meal kits from your favorite chefs and brands without lifting a finger. Here are all of the things you can do with the Chef’d Skill on Alexa.
1. Order Weekly Meals
Hosting a dinner party? Too busy to shop? No matter the reason, ordering through Alexa will help you tackle planning your meals with ease. With over 500 meal kits (and counting) from some of the best chefs and food brands in the world, you can fill up your weekly menu quick.
2. Get Personalized Recommendations
If you don’t know what you’d like on your menu this week—don’t stress. Alexa will give you a series of meal kit recommendations every week. Not only will this help you navigate our massive collection of meal kits, but it will also allow you explore and discover new flavors.
3. Save Default Payment and Shipping Information for Simple Checkout
One of the best features of ordering with Alexa is the quick and easy checkout process. By adding default payment and shipping information to your account, Alexa will know what card to bill, where to send your meals, and when to send them, without you ever having to click a button.
Once you’ve enabled the Chef’d Skill on your Alexa, it will use your payment and shipping information that is saved on your Chef’d account. You can set this up or change it at any time through the Chef’d app or through your online account. Speak your order and have it magically appear at your doorstep—without lifting a finger!
