My boyfriend and I started HomeChef to keep us from eating out all the time. We love cooking together and the recipes for HomeChef were clear, easy to make (most of the time) and almost ALWAYS delicious (unless he overcooked the pork....). We would have kept with it, but we started the Keto Diet. Although they offer "low carb" options, their nutritional content doesn't provide a fiber count so we can't determine if the meals are within our daily limits for carbs. If they would just implement this one piece of information, we would start back in a heartbeat!
Pros
The recipes!!
Cons
No Fiber Content...
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I tried Hello Fresh first for about 3 months and wasn't completely satisfied with the meal options. There was not enough every week. I really like the idea of these meal services so I gave it another chance and tried HomeChef.com.  I am glad I did as they have many more meal options every week than Hello Fresh along with the ability to buy a basket of fruit which I enjoy for snacks. It is seasonal fruit and is always fresh, large, and tasty.

The recipes that Home Chef comes up with our very good and easy to cook with most of mine taking about 30 minutes. The recipe cards and cold packaging are also excellent. I am definitely glad I made the switch and plan to continue using Home Chef.
Pros
Fresh Food at a reasonable price. Lots of meals to choose from.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I have been really enjoying my dinner boxes from Home Chef. The meal selections are the best of the competitors like Hello Fresh , Blue Apron and Plated. They also have the most options of 10 different meals every week. I also like the fact that they tag right on the menu page what each meal is for.  Right away you know if it is vegetarian, glutton-free, or if it contains nuts.

The difficulty levels of the meals are accurate as well. I usually choose between the easy and intermediate level. The harder the level usually the longer it takes to prepare and cook.

The smoothies are also excellent and tasty with different types of fruit and yogurt every week.

I also just discovered that Home Chef offers breakfasts meal kits as well. I plan on adding that to my subscription  for next week. They defiantly look good and I am curious about the variety they can offer over time. Currently it looks like they only have 1 breakfast a week which is fine by me as I plan to use it on the weekend when I have time to cook a big meal.

I will report back in a month or so if the Home Chef breakfast meals live up to expectations!!!


Pros
Variety of dinners to choose from
Cons
The odd time my meal box has been damaged on the outside
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Home Chef has been really good. I am still surprised at how much I like it. It's a fun non-stressful way to cook interesting dishes you may normally not think of creating. Having all the food sent in the correct portions makes things easy.

Even my 2 picky kids (in their teens) enjoy most of the dinners. We use to eat out a lot more now we stay at home and cooking dinner has become a family affair. If you eat out a lot with your family you will save money, If you are using Home Chef to replace grocery shopping then you will not. 

I like how all the meals are the same price on Home Chef so you are not thinking of price when you make your selection. Check out their menu on homechef.com and you will see all the upcoming meals. There are lots of pictures and the recipes have step by step instructions along with pictures. The recipe will show you what is in the meal box you will receive, if the meal is glutin-free or vegetarian (or contains nuts, shellfish,etc...) and it lists nutrition information like calories, carbohydrates, fat, protein, and sodium.  The Home Chef recipe also gives you the prep and cook time along with the difficulty level and Spicy level -which makes it kid friendly.
Pros
Food is amazing! Fun to cook.
Cons
The odd food recipe is not for us. Should remember to check your selection every week.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
