Tovala is a time-saving meal service and countertop smart oven that scans, steams, broils and bakes chef-crafted meals.

Tovala was born from a mission to reinvent home cooking to save people time.

Tovala was founded in 2017 by David Rabie and Bryan Wilcox. The company is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.

Tovala solves the dinner dilemma by providing fresh, scan-to-cook meals without the time commitment or prep typically involved.

Tovala’s fresh, chef-crafted meals and smart oven work together to let customers enjoy a delicious, home-cooked meal without the work. Each meal requires one minute of prep time before it's scanned and cooked perfectly in the Tovala Smart Oven in 20 minutes or less.


Tovala's WiFi-connected countertop oven steams, bakes and broils based on a custom QR code, expertly cooking each individual meal. Unlike reheated dishes, Tovala delivers on the experience of a home-cooked meal without compromising freshness, taste or texture.


Tovala is backed by Finistere Ventures, Comcast Ventures, OurCrowd, Origin Ventures, Pritzker Group Venture Capital, Rich Products Ventures and others. The company raised $20M in Seriees B round on June 02, 2020. This brings Tovala's total funding to $38.6M to date. Tovala has also acquired Radish on Nov 14, 2017.
