🍝 What is Jow?

Jow is a weekly meal planning and grocery app that recommends recipes and orders ingredients and other goods for pickup or delivery from your favorite nearby store. We take the stress out of cooking and shopping and help you prepare and enjoy easy, delicious meals at home.

🤠 I’m hungry

Hi hungry, nice to meet you. I’m dad.

💸 How does Jow help me save money?

Talking about money can be weird, but not to us. Times are crazy right now and saving anywhere you can makes a big difference. Jow helps you save money in a few ways.

  • When you add a recipe to your cart, Jow only fills your shopping list with the quantities required for the recipe, so you’re only buying what you need #byefoodwaste not #buyfoodwaste

  • We also have a filter if you only want to see the cheapest items

  • You can easily add and remove grocery items based on what you already have in your pantry (we’re not really the “upselling” type)

  • When you shop through Jow, you’re not tempted by the candy aisle :-)

  • Time is money, right? Instead of getting in the car, driving to the store, walking inside, getting a cart, etc. etc. etc., Jow creates your menu plan and allows you to shop for your groceries from anywhere (yep, even at a baseball game, swim meet, or airport terminal).

📝 Create and Save a Shopping List Without a Grocer Account

You can create a shopping list without ordering by using a non-store account (Apple, Google, or Facebook login) 🎉🎉🎉

To do this, log into your preferred social media account within the Jow app, choose the number of recipes you want to make, and tap Let's go!

● Specify the number of servings, your kitchen equipment, and your dietary preferences

● Create your menu either using our personalized recommendations or searching for recipes

● Tap Create my grocery list

You can then use this list to do your shopping in-store and check off items as you add them to your cart. Once you have checked off all the items, click on "I'm done shopping" to save your menu to your Jow account. You can come back here when you're ready to cook and get the step-by-step instructions. Then all that's left to do is enjoy your delicious recipes! 😋

⏰ How do I save a recipe and find it later?

It’s 8:15 am and you see a cocktail recipe on the Jow app. You lie in bed and think to yourself “wow, I want this, but not right now.

Easily find this recipe later by “Favoriting” it! Just tap the red heart icon and the recipe will be saved.

You can find all of your Favorited recipes in a couple places: the Time to cook tab, as well as in the shopping cart tab when you replace a recipe in your menu. Swap out a recipe with a tried-and-true favorite by clicking “Replace” by the recipe you want to replace, and the My Favorites category will appear for you to choose a replacement.

🔀 Select Another Provider

In order to switch between two providers:

  • From the app, go to your profile page by selecting the person icon on the bottom menu, select My associated accounts and you can Add a merchant. You will then be allowed to connect from another provider.

  • On the Jow website, hover over your name in the top right corner and go to Associated Accounts and click on "disconnect". You will then be able to select another provider!

😥 My favorite grocery store isn’t available on Jow

We're so sorry :-( The good news is that we are working on including more providers! Currently, you can pickup or get your groceries delivered from Kroger (where available).

Please, feel free to send us an email to support@jow.com to inform us about the grocery stores you'd like to see available on Jow :-)

😓 I couldn’t find the information I was looking for

If your question isn’t related to your provider, then please contact our support team by sending an email to: support@jow.com and we would be happy to help! :-)

📦 Is Jow a meal kit?

No, but we get that a lot 💁‍♀️

We’re a meal planning + recipe + grocery + home essentials + saves you time & money app brought to you by people who love dad jokes and karaoke.

👽 What makes Jow different from other recipe & grocery services?

We were started because a new dad wanted to feed his children homemade meals quickly & easily… but coming up with meal ideas, then grocery shopping, then prepping and cooking was time consuming. He created an app that fixed that: Jow

Jow saves you time and money by suggesting weekly menus catered to your preferences and creating your shopping cart with only the ingredients (and quantities!) that you need. You can add home essentials too for quick and easy household shopping, giving you more time for the most important things in life: family, friends, and food!

🕐 How does Jow save me time?

Jow saves you time by answering that age-old question “What’s for dinner?” Not only do we get you to a decision faster and more easily, but we put together your grocery list, let you include other home essentials, and where available, help you place that order with your local grocer where you can pick it up or have it delivered (where available).

We save you time at home too, as each recipe takes under 30 minutes to cook.

🎅 How to make my shopping list (and why you should check it twice)

When you enter the app, select how many meals you’d like Jow to select for you (the default is 5) and click “Let’s Go!”

We’ll suggest delicious recipes based on your preferences or you can search our catalogue of thousands of recipes.. When you’re happy with your menu, click “Create my grocery list”.

We’ll place everything you need in your cart and give you the opportunity to shop the shelves of your local grocery store to add whatever additional ingredients and household items you need (i.e. ice cream, wine, and Kleenex).

Make sure to double check your list when you’re ready to check out because once you are redirected to your preferred grocer, you won’t be able to edit the cart within the Jow app (but don’t worry, you can still edit it through your grocer if need-be).

⚖️ How to change unit of measurement

You can toggle between US and Metric by going to your account settings (the little person icon). Account settings > Display settings > Measure units.

🖨️ Can I print out Jow recipes?

Yes, you can on our website: www.jow.com

To print your recipe, select the recipe you’d like to print from the “What’s cooking?” page and then find the “Print” button in the box above the list of ingredients.

There isn’t currently a way to print directly from the Jow app, but we are working on solutions for this!

🍰 How do I find more Jow recipes like additional dinner ideas, desserts, and drinks?

In your Jow-created menu, you can either replace a recipe you aren’t feeling, or at the bottom, select “Add a meal +

This will take you to our Jow Cookbook, essentially a catalog of all of our recipes that are currently available. You can search in the search bar by dish name (like chocolate chip cookies) or by ingredient (chocolate). You can also browse helpful categories like New, Veggie, and more!
