Home Cheff may be legit, dono, but the Home Chef name is being used for fraudulent purposes. I recently got a notice appearing to come from PayPal showing my account had been charged $29 to Home Chef. I've never heard of Home Chef let alone signed up for anything there. My first reaction was to check my PayPal account: no debit there, so I tried to find a link on the Home Chef site to find out what was going on. If you dig deep enough, you can find a "help" e-mail link. I used it to give it to them a full report with screenshots of the fake invoice; it's been two weeks without a response. I went back to the original notice from PayPal, which looked exactly like every other notification... Read More

We were given credit by friends to use this service; we were delighted with it. The ingredients were amazingly fresh; the instructions for prep very clear; the outcome was uniformly good and occasionally exceptional. My wife and I had fun cooking together in the kitchen, learning new things. What's not to like? Well, we were not given any 'Welcome' information. We had no idea what to expect, and thus were very pleased with our introduction. What came as a big surprise was when our account became lamentably $3.90 short of a 'free' delivery, and the service was simply stopped. No notice to us, although our email is the account contact. Oops! We have guests coming to show off this... Read More

I have been using Home Chef for about 6 months, along with 2 other meal delivery plans. Home Chef is excellent, always every ingredient in the box and every ingredient is fresh. Plenty of variety to choose from. The cooking instructions are easy to follow and I am a better cook now. My eventual plan is to get a box every other week. They are very easy to work with.

I was supposed to have received my box yesterday but I didn't so I went to the web site to try to find out what happened to it. There is no contact information no phone number and when you try to email them it just rerouted me to the beginning again. I now feel like I have been ripped off and I have to contact my bank to dispute the charges and cancel my card. This was supposed to make my life easier but has made me have to work way more. Now I'm out the money and the food.

We used Home Chef for about 3 months. They were awesome in the beginning, then really went down hill. Weekly there were missing ingredients in the meals then we received a Molded pepper in a order. That did it. We cancelled.

I did a lot of research on meal delivery kits. I love the concept. All the ingredients for three meals for two people in one box. I love that there is no waste. The recipes are really easy to follow and incorporate flavors and techniques I wouldn't have thought of. I don't have to buy a lot of ingredients that will expire or go bad and in the six weeks I have used them, my grocery bill has gone down since I have a tendency to pick up things I didn't go in for. All ingredients have been properly portioned, fresh, and carefully packed. So, there's the why. I have had two minor issues which were responded to quickly and the company generously credited my account, so customer service is top... Read More

Where are those negative reviews coming from? We have been Home Chef customers for almost a year now and regularly rave about the service, the quality, the responsiveness and the joy of dealing with this company. We like adventure in cooking so long as the end product is great and we find that to regularly be the case with Home Chef. Everything is very fresh and the recipes are different, tasty and well seasoned. Home Chef is not afraid of spice or flavor and it is always fun to see what the next list of options provide. The cost is also minimal for the quality of food received. This is an outstanding operation that has delivered great recipes with everything needed to make a... Read More

Can I purchase a gift certificate as a Christmas gift?

The packing is the key. The food is on top on the ice packs and the container is left in the sun from the delivery company. Put the food in between ice packs so that the sun does not warm the product before the customer has a chance to take it inside their home/refrigerator.

The meals are not tasty, the vegetables are old and shriveled all the foods we have tried so far have been cooked in lots of oil. Not healthy or low calorie. I am going back to Blue Apron.
