What does it cost?
Our standard prepay service is $170 and out mini cook is $125. We also have various add-ons available.
What does I Hate Cooking provide?
For your convenience, we bring along many of the dried herbs, spices and some pantry basics which we use in our recipes. We also bring most of our cooking utensils, but we will often use your oven. We provide years of experience cooking for families and friends. We prepare all our meals with love and care.
What if we want extra menu choices?
Chat to us about doing smaller serves for each dish. We offer a single additional dish and sides as add ons. The best way to have extra dishes done is to team up with a friend and have a Double Cook. We can do twice as many dishes but then you and your friend get twice as much variety too. Likewise, if you are on your own, you can split the service with a friend and share the dishes. Give us a call to arrange this so that we can leave extra time. We will be adding to the menu regularly so sign up for updates to our service areas and menu options.
Can I get government funding?
Funding is available through many different institutions. We have received payments from the Department of Veteran Affairs, Work Cover, Aged Care packages, NDIS and various insurance organizations. Talk to your provider to see whether you are eligible. Please note that our post pay service is approximately 10% more to cover various admin costs.
Are you registered with the NDIS?
Yes we are registered for our in home cooking service. If our service is reasonable and necessary for your situation and it aligns with your goals, then we can help. Talk to your plan manager or support co-ordinator, or get in touch with us.

How will my meals be stored?
You can opt to purchase containers or provide your own. We like to have a shelf clear in your refrigerator where the cold ingredients should be kept until we arrive, and for us to place the meals on completion. You can have meals stored in single or double serves, or you can keep each dish in one large container – whatever suits you. There is a $12 flat fee for plastic containers which we recommend as single use only.
