Ratings and Reviews
I've been using Home Chef for a couple of years. Enough to fill two binders with recipes. The deliveries are generally good as far as reliability and quality, portion sizes are good with the exception of protein+side salad meals; those aren't enough for a meal. Early on there were issues with items being missing. They would always issue a refund, but it was frequent enough that I cancelled my service for a few months. They contacted me and offered a special to try them again, so I did and have been pleased.
For the past year, it's been pretty good. Produce is fresh, proteins are high quality, and delivery remains reliable. Only issues: the shrimp always leaks juice into the bag of proteins and the recipe cards are often tossed in the box at and angle causing them to be bent when the box is closed. But the recipes are good, though I question some of the chefs' ability to cook meat considering their prescribed cooking temps and time.
As far as the app, it's great. Easy to choose your meals (weeks in advance), skip weeks, and cancel. Can be tricky to find the Contact Us link, though, which is obnoxious. Still, highly recommend.
App makes it really easy to use this service. It’s easy to choose, and we have had so many amazing meals. We both enjoy cooking, so we like the process and LOVE the final dishes. I like that you can see everything including ingredients and instructions - full transparency to see if the cooking and food is good for what we desire. Because we skip most weeks (I use this for when we are out of town on a weekend), I’d like to “activate” a week instead of worrying about skipping every single week. I messed up once and got a shipment we didn’t need. Everything else is awesome, and I would recommend to anyone. Even if you can’t cook.. choose the easy meals, and it’s a great way to learn how to shop and to cook. In addition, we live in a condo with non air-conditioned interior mail storage, and these stay cold until late in the evening when we pick up. Nicely packaged. Thanks!
After already being a Hello Fresh customer, we decided to give Home Chef a try. The delivery info for the first box said it would arrive on time. Even the day it was supposed to arrive the online information continued to say “On Time.” Ended up showing up the next day. The second box and it up coming to us with ingredients leaking. Nobody should have taw chicken leaking all over the place. A bottle of vinegar opened up in one of the bags as well. By day to one of the bags of salad was already wilting. We never had this many issues with Hello Fresh over the course of a few months, never mind two weeks. Overall, very disappointing!
On the plus side though, we really enjoyed five out of the six recipes we ended up getting. We will probably make most of them again on our own. Recipes were easy to follow. Like other food delivery kits, very convenient! The app also worked very well for ordering and skipping weeks. I guess some of the old bugs got worked out.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
