Home Chef: 1 Year Check-In

I did my initial full review of Home Chef about a year ago. If you need a refresher, you can find it here: Reviewing Home Chef.

Home Chef wasn’t my first try at meal service deliveries though, as I had previously tried Blue Apron and Hello Fresh too. So, I thought I’d do a quick one-year check-in and let you all know if we are still loving it.

Short answer: YES. We still love Home Chef and are sticking with it.

Each week, I have 21 meals to choose from. TWENTY-ONE options! There are tons of meals every week: poultry-based, seafood-based, meat-based, or just veggie-based. We typically stick with a 2-person serving size, but if I know it’s something Jack will also love I’ll bump it up to 4-servings and have leftovers. However, many times the 2-serving portion totally stretches enough to include our 2nd grader too (so keep that in mind if there are smaller kids in the house).

Let’s take a look at one of my upcoming orders:

Here are the three meals I picked to be delivered on December 17th:

  • Sweet and Spicy Coconut Mahi-Mahi with charred baby box choy and pineapple rice
  • Roasted Red Pepper Steak Linguine with spinach and Parmesan
  • Shrimp Bruschetta Risotto with Asiago and grape tomatoes

Our total for this week is $63.70 for the three meals.

And here are alllll the other options I had for that same week:

Pretty impressive, right?! I could have added meals, protein packs of meat, salads for lunch, or even a smoothie!

We’ve been using Home Chef for over a year now and I will typically get 1 – 2 orders delivered each month. I love the variety in the options and that we get to try lots of different dishes in the comfort of our own home. I also make sure to keep an eye out for their “Home Chef Express” options which take 10 – 15 minutes to make when I know I have a busy week coming up.

If you do decide to try Home Chef, please let me know what you think! A little tip though, when you sign up for your first delivery go in and immediately “pause” your second delivery date.

Then, if you don’t like it just hit “cancel” and you won’t get any more boxes or be charged more than your initial payment.

  1. We love Home Chef and have been using it weekly for about 4 years now. It has vastly reduced my grocery bill since I don’t buy stuff that will be thrown out just to complete a recipe. Also we eat out much less. It is perfect for our two person home. Home Chef Express is also a favorite of mine. I also like that you can customize your protein options and change a fish dish to chicken, or a pork dish to beef etc. Love, love, love.

  2. Always glad to hear of someone else who likes HomeChef! It has been a game changer for me. I was never particularly interested in cooking, much to my grandmother’s chagrin. Something flipped in my head a couple of years ago & HomeChef seemed like a good fit. The recipes are easy to follow, the ingredients aren’t scary, and the price is just right. I’ve learned a lot with HomeChef & Food Network, and now I look forward to cooking! And like you noted, the choices are outstanding!
