With Home Chef meal delivery, you can easily cook all of your favorite dishes while also trying a variety of new and exciting recipes.
Each week, members can choose 16 recipes that are delivered straight to their front door. These meals include flexible options for different group sizes and dietary preferences, and members can change their orders on a weekly basis. Home Chef offers free shipping for orders over $45, but there will be a shipping fee for orders under that price.
Home Chef customers will receive more than 18 meal options for everyday of the week. Home Chef also provide meal recommendations for the week if their customers are having trouble deciding or have certain dietary requirements.
The menu has a wide range of meal options with different calorie counts, low-carb options and flavors in order to suit a wide range of needs. The quality of the food depends on the recipe, and of course, the individual. While offering a variety of tasty meal options, some customers find that the basic meals are a little bland. They also offer vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options as well as vegan. However, the vegan dishes aren't guaranteed to be 100% vegan, making it tricky for those who follow a completely vegan diet.
Home Chef delivers their meals across the United States, “from coast to coast” on Tuesdays through Fridays. Although Home Chef doesn’t deliver to all parts of the country, those interested can inquire if delivery is available to their location. The meals arrive in fully-recyclable cardboard boxes, bottles, and jars. Customers have the convenience of deciding to cancel or skip a scheduled weekly delivery. Home Chef makes it easy to select the amount of food for two, four, or six people.
Members can also create their own personalized dietary profile making it easy to order according to meal preferences. Settings include omnivore, meat, seafood, pescatarian, and vegetarian, as well as options like low calories and low-carb. Meals arrive sealed and pre-portioned with directions for preparation and plating clearly lined out and easy to follow.
Generally, Home Chef is a relatively affordable option in comparison to other meal delivery services, especially for those who are ordering for multiple people. Customers aren't required to pay the $10 shipping fee for orders of $45 or more. Home Chef meals start at a reasonable $7.99 per serving. In addition, Home Chef also delivers smoothies and fruit baskets costing $4.95 each. All customers enjoy free shipping for weekly orders of $45 and up. That ends up equaling about $59.70 for a meal that serves two people.
Customers can get in touch with Home Chef by phone during regular business hours. Home Chef also has lots of helpful information that you can access via their online FAQ with a convenient search bar or browse on their social media pages.
Home Chef has often been praised for its easy to follow recipes and customization options, meaning that the meal plans are catered to a wide audience with different taste and needs. However, vegan options are rather limited which is a shame considering the rise in veganism.
