About Home Chef
HomeChef.com is the online home of Home Chef, a new meal delivery company which says their goal is to help take the stress, time, and effort of being able to cook a fresh, healthy dinner for yourself or your family.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the mission of Home Chef is to ensure that busy people able are able to skip the stress and mess of regularly going to the grocery store by having all the ingredients they need for a delicious and healthy meal delivered right to their door.
Each week the staff at Home Chef will create a new menu of ten different dinner recipes, some breakfast options, a fruit basket option, and a new smoothie recipe. These recipes will range from meat and seafood options to vegetarian meals, gluten-free or low-carb meals, and many others. Perhaps the best part is that all of their recipes are designed to be made in thirty minutes or less.
In addition to their healthy recipes, the website says that this company strives to work with selected vendors that share their values, including a focus on sustainable practices, benefiting the ecosystem in which they operate, and who demonstrate respect for their employees.
Home Chef customers will receive meals with ingredients perfectly proportioned to eliminate guess work and food waste, and this company strives to do their best in reducing the amount of packaging needed to ship their meals, and to use recycled materials whenever possible.
Unlike other meal delivery companies that prefer to have customers sign up to a pre-determined “box” delivery of certain types of meals, Home Chef wants their customers to order food based on the menus which are available that week and the number of servings you need.
Because of this, their website simply says that all their meals are priced at $9.95 per serving, and Premium Dishes are sold at market price. Delivery will be priced at a flat rate of $10.00 for all orders under $45.00, and all orders which total more than $45.00 will be provided free shipping. The website also says that they don’t charge sales tax.
The website says that they do not expect their customers to commit to long term contracts, and as such, the website’s Refund Policy simply states that customers who cancel within the first 30 days from the date of sign up are welcome to a full refund.
Customers who cancel after the first month of service will no longer be eligible for a refund, however. Instead you will be able to continue your current subscription period through to the end, at which point your subscription will not be renewed.

This company seems to have very positive reviews, with people liking the quality of ingredients, the variety of recipes, and the clear explanations and directions. In addition, food blogs that have reviewed this service mention that it has some of the best selections of recipes for people who are looking for specific options, like gluten free recipes, so if you have specific dietary habits this service may be better for you than other popular options.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Recently meal delivery companies that offer healthy ingredients and recipes have become extremely popular, so customers who feel as though Home Chef might not be their best fit should have a long list of alternatives if they wish to look elsewhere, including Blue Apron, Plated.com, Freshly.com, Freshology.com, Sprig.com, and many others, especially when you include the many different diet and weight loss companies that provide meal delivery services as well.

I have been a subscriber to Home Chef for a couple months now and I am completely satisfied. The cost is reasonable and everything arrives fresh and neatly cold packed. They have a good menu variety to choose from. I will definitely be with Home Chef for a while.
I tried to sign up for this to get a few meals and possibly try some new meals. The site would not allow me to get past the preference selection step. The company seems to supply nothing but meat dishes, nothing for vegetarian/vegan shoppers. With more and more people becoming aware of he benefits of eating healthy and sustainably, one would think that companies like this would not lag behind. Shame on you Home Chef for not considering your customers needs.
