Home Chef - Reviewed & Compared

Let’s face it – some of us simply don’t have time to plan, shop for ingredients, and cook complete meals for ourselves and our families. Home Chef addresses this by delivering customizable meal kits that allow anyone to prepare fresh, delicious meals right at home.

The Skinny on the Food

It’s all about the food at Home Chef. They have a menu that changes weekly (and is set five weeks in advance), so the level of choice is unsurpassed. From complete dinners to high end gourmet meals to quick lunches to add-ons like smoothies, you’re never going hungry here. Everything we tried was fresh, delicious, and very easy to prepare.

Home Chef Pros

  • I loved their menu, and I loved the fact that it constantly changes. There’s always multiple choices to look forward to.
  • Everything is delivered fresh, in ice-packed, insulated, recyclable boxes.
  • Every ingredient is perfectly portioned and clearly packaged. There’s little to no guesswork, and even a novice cook (like me) can make great meals.
  • There’s a lot of customization options with your meals. Sub out sides, double portions, add a smoothie, etc. Almost any diet (like low carb, etc.) can be catered to.
  • The price is very fair, especially for the quality of the food you get.
  • No commitment – you can skip weeks, cancel anytime, and more.

Any Negatives

The only negative is they don’t have “specific” diets, like Paleo or similar. But you can easily build a Paleo-themed (or similar) menu with their options.


Most meals run 7.49 to 9.99 per serving. So it’s cheaper (and healthier) than eating out and they offer a special promotion of $90 Off Your First 4 Boxes.
