My husband and I had been using Home Chef for a year, but just cancelled our service. The service started off great even when the recipes started getting remarkably similar and the vegetable side was too often squash. Over the last few months, I found myself contacting them at least once or twice a month with issues that they don’t seem to care about. Due to the lack of care when packing our box, too often was there a puncture or tear in a package of meat causing blood or goo to get all over everything. Sometimes we paid for a fancier meat like filet mignon and didn’t get it. Other times, vegetables were soft, wilted, and the issue that caused the cancellation was that we received a garlic clove that had mold growing on it! The quality of ingredients has gone completely down hill and it’s no longer acceptable considering this isn’t a cheap service. If you had asked me a year ago if I recommend, I would have said yet, but now, heck no!! Do not waste your hard-earned money for inedible ingredients and poor customer service.

Ingredients are not of quality. It really would taste better and be more cost effective to go on YouTube and try to teach yourself how to cook.

I have been doing Home Chef for over a year and I love it! The only issue I've ever had was it was late once but that due to the FedEx and the snow...The meals are wonderful and easy. I would definitely recommend.

    What is Home Chef & how does it work?

  • Home Chef (starting at $9.95 per serving) is a meal kit delivery service that sends you the fresh ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes you need to make home-cooked meals for you and your family.

    Choose to receive breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks as often as once per week. Set preferences and leave it to Home Chef to do the meal planning for you, or choose your recipes yourself from their ever-changing weekly menus. (You can even hand-pick the protein you’d like for select recipes using their Customize It feature.)

    Each box contains the meats, produce, spices, and other ingredients you’ll need to create your week’s recipes. Note that you’ll be expected to supply staple ingredients, such as olive oil, salt, pepper, and water, as well as common cooking tools like simple pots, pans, mixing bowls, a good knife, and utensils like forks and spoons. Most ingredients are pre-portioned, meaning you’ll only receive as much of an ingredient as you need for the recipe. (No leftover ingredients going to waste in your fridge.)

    How much does Home Chef cost?

  • Home Chef’s standard meals start at $9.95 per serving, but their snacks, breakfasts, and lunches run for even less per serving. Choose whether you want a 2- or 4-person plan—orders over $45 get free shipping. Your actual price per week will depend on the number of servings and meals per week in your plan, plus add-ons.

    What kind of food is on the Home Chef menu? Do they have vegetarian options?

  • Home Chef offers a wide variety of familiar and creative flavors in their ever-changing weekly menus. They do always offer vegetarian options, but while you may find vegan, paleo, keto, or gluten-free meals on the menu, they don’t appear consistently.

    Some of the dishes we’ve gotten recently include: Crispy Prosciutto and Mushroom Farfalle with Garlic Bread, French Onion Chicken with Arugula Salad and White Balsamic Vinaigrette, BBQ Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl with Farro and Ranch Dressing, and Ciabatta Tuna Melt

    Note that you can preview all Home Chef recipes before you order them, so you can double-check that the ingredients, calorie counts, and time commitment are to your liking.
