  • Thanks Matt for this video. I’ve been curious about several of the other companies you spoke about.
    Currently I am using Home Chef. My husband is on a Keto diet and he is surprisingly enjoying it. The meals are delicious and easy to prepare.

  • People who are talking about the freezing and it was his fault the food was bad, 1) it wasn’t a full week of food it was just 5 days 2) his food was rotten on the second day, it shouldn’t have been bad that fast

  • I have had Marley Spoon for 7 months and I only ordered 2 meals per week cause I just couldn’t eat one every day. I had to cancel my plan because they kept having missing items and damaged items. However the food was always good but the steak I got was tough & grisselly. Did the manufacturers not say to freeze your food till you are ready to cook it? Sorry for your food going bad. But good to know the cheapest food was generally better. Thanks for your video!

  • I took the Home Chef for a while. I liked them quite a bit. We stopped because of reasons that had nothing to do with the meal service.

  • I felt the same about blue apron. I think their recipes were pretty boring. I loved home chef and Terra’s Kitchen. I don’t think anyone will feel safe with Terras reusable packing now though.

  • I’ve tried hello fresh and blue apron. So many delays, ruined boxes (days and days late or meat busted all over). Maybe because I live off the beaten path? Either way it wasn’t worth the cost, never got a refund (well, they offered credit but I don’t want the service so it was pointles).

  • After watching the video then reading some of the comments in the comment section….it made the video even funnier. I just found you on youtube and your so sweet keep it up!

  • Does anybody know if he got sick following this video? I don’t use insta so I wouldn’t know if he mentioned it on his instagram…

  • We tried Hello Fresh for four weeks, 12 meals, and were generally very pleased there was only one meal that was unacceptable, and oddly enough, one that should have been easy for them to get right. If there is any protein that is an American staple, it is ground beef. Yet the meat HF sent us for one of their gourmet burgers was so tough and stringy, it could easily have been a ground up rodeo saddle. Everything else we had would rate between very good and excellent.

  • Ive been using Hello Fresh and Marley Spoon for a couple of years now. The both have their plusses and minuses. I appreciate you offering a look at the other services because Ive been wanting to try some different ones.

  • She mispronounced Romaine and she is super negative about everything. Her whole attitude is crap, I’d hate to have to be around this woman for any length of time

  • I use hone chef and I love it ��. I like how they package their ingredients because it’s really helpful for blind people like me to have all of the ingredients for one meal together.

  • Being that the weather has been so warm on the west coast US, and many people are home “distancing” a lot of people are working in their gardens. How about using your awesome testing skills on “Solar Powered LED Path Lights??” That would be much appreciated. PS> You crack me up, which really helps break up the strange vibes everyone is living with these days. Many thanks, Matt!

  • Hello Fresh and Home Chef are easily the best. The recipes are easier to follow and both have tons of coupon codes available, especially if you do a trial and put your account on hold. They’ll send additional codes every few weeks. We just flipflop back and forth on which ever company has the best discounts. We generally get 2 meals per week and really enjoy just about everything.

  • Great rundown on the home meal delivery services, Matt. My parents are also part of the “retired diners” club. This probably won’t cost much more than a restaurant meal, with the added benefit of social distancing. You gave me some Food for Thought today ��

  • Guess he might have to do a do-over of this video and go through it all again, cauz the comments section wasn’t satisfied…. ����

  • Oh come on! They are far better than anything you can get at your local grocery store frozen food section… You have to admit that the meals are seasoned ok and the food tastes good.. You are right about the Peppercorn Steak but it still wasn’t that bad when you consider these are meals prepared and packaged…. Considering the process, I don’t think you can expect anything much better but not all of us have been fed with a silver spoon all of our lives like Miss “Blondie.”

  • Very well done, Deal Guy. First of all, I’m thankful that you weren’t partial to any one or two or three service companies. Nobody likes a sell out. Secondly, I don’t know how you were able to sustain your high speed but it was killer, Nobody wants to waste time. You kept the digression brief, succinct, and helpful. However I do have what I believe is a sensible suggestion. Your good video was over 11 minutes of pretty vital info on the subject. So I appreciate the rapid but i’m thinking that it would be super helpful to provide a synopsis at the end. Maybe a simple one_page chart with a column of companies on the left and price

  • nice review!! I think what it is is they have to cook for a neutral palette so I find have a few dash on spices or hot sauces really go a long way with this type of meal prep service

  • The food that went bad the fastest is the good with the most processed ingredients. Maybe you should’ve frozen the foods that are to be eaten later in the week to preserve it longer.

  • I’m wondering at what temperature your refrigerator is set because some of those foods really should have been able to last 5 days before going bad. Yes, ideally you should have frozen them, especially those set to be eaten later in the week. But it seems to me your refrigerator is set too low for the large addition of food you placed in it all at once.

  • Yes you should freeze the meals until ready to eat. So Mondays meal first while the rest of the weeks kept frozen, each day defrost the next day.

  • For just about a full year, I have been SOOO happy with Blue Apron. Never had a meal we hated (one or two we’d choose not to have again). IT IS NOT CHEAP. It is a replacement for eating out. We can skip weeks easily if we need/want; each week I can choose our menu from about 10 options, altho husband prefers to be surprised. I find the meals are ample and we frequently have enough leftovers for lunch for one the following day. I find the meals mostly delicious and all of them easy to prepare. The meal delivery services resolve the “what’s for dinner” “I don’t know, what do you want” “I don’t care, whatever you want” dilemma, and help you avoid supermarkets. We have also translated some of the recipes to dinner parties and family gatherings. And during the current crazy situation, it is absolutely a relief not to have to worry about running to the grocer.

  • Good review, thank you. I would add:
    They have GREAT customer support
    Everything, including the box, ice/gel packs, food trays, insulation is recyclable
    Sodium content tends to be high if you need a low sodium diet

  • I like you Content. And hope you gave friends or so the rest of your food what you cant finish. I know you cant 0 the food waste but maybe minimise it as much as possible.

  • We started ordering Freshly about 1.5 months ago (during lockdown). In the beginning we were excited to get our 6 meal boxes. Flavors were good, but we sometimes have had to add seasonings �� �� to our liking. The SteakPeppercorn with the Cauliflower mash has been one of our favorites mainly because of flavor, protein and low carbs. But portion sizes have changed drastically and the cauli mash has been replaced with potatoes, and the flavors have changed so much that today as I write this, it’s really bland. The Sicilian-Style Parm was very bland. Too many of their meals have rice. The pastas are so underdone, I’m considering placing them in the slow cooker with extra liquid such as sauce, chicken broth or water so I can stomach them. I’m planning on skipping some deliveries. Maybe a few weeks will help them get it together and return to their original recipes.
    I’ve also found that customer service is lacking. They don’t answer the phone and they don’t answer texts. I expect more from them when paying $10 bucks a meal. We may just cancel and stick to using Instacart, Bite Squad or DoorDash for our food deliveries. Mulling it over, I’ll see.

    It’s nice to have prepared foods delivered, but we need consistency. I understand that some items are not readily available during this pandemic, but seasonings too?

  • If you are a plain Jane eater I doubt you’ll enjoy. The meat is tender, the seasoning on point, and the portion decent. I love the way they incorporate the vegetable.

  • Thank you for your time, effort, and energy in doing this and sharing it with us! It is so helpful:)

    Would you also be able to review other kits like Purple Carrot, Hungry Root, Green Chef, Dinnerly, and Gobble? I personally thought the dishes from Dinnerly were not enjoyable (which is unfortunate, because they are well-priced), but I don’t know if that was just my own experience.

    Thank you again!

  • first off freeze the food so it doesnt go bad secondly food is good for 4 days max in the fridge and thridly seafood dont go past 2 days in the fridge freshness with seafood fades very very quickly

  • My ears literally hurt from the headset I’m using just to binge-watch all rapha’s videos �� but still i keep watching wahahahaha no pain, no gain. Love from the Philippines! ��

  • Hey Dummy if you microwave food and then get on youtube pretending to be a food / health / fitness expert. You are in face an idiot. So let me ask did you you go to there website and get oven heating instructions? Because if you didn’t your review is shit!

  • Raphael’s so sweet. But it’s so frustrating to see him doing stuff wrong. And even if I ever get to tell him what he did wrong… He would have already suffered the consequences cuz we are watching videos which he recorded before.

  • Matt, what about Green Chef? How do they compare to Sun Basket? I know that they cater to many of those same markets of specialty food group eaters. Also, Dinnerly is also by the Marley brand. I would be very interested to see what a Dinnerly vs a Martha by Marley Spoon meal look like up close.
    I have personally had both Home Chef and Dinnerly. With Home Chef there are more ounces of protein per meal, each day’s meals are sent in separate bags, everything that has already been peeled or portioned is sealed, and there are printed menus. With Dinnerly there were a few fewer ounces per dinner, all of the week’s ingredients were in the bag together, and you looked on-line at the recipes to match everything up. Dinnerly, however, is half the price of Hello Fresh.

  • I’ve been using Hello Fresh but their insulation is really bad. I live in Phoenix and at least half of my deliveries since March have been melted and the bottoms of the boxes hot and soaking wet. To their credit, they’ve refunded me every time this has happened, but there have been several more times when the meat inside the box is warm and I just replace it myself because it’s such a hassle to contact them every single week. First they fixed it by promising me that UPS would no longer deliver the meals, it would be FedEx only (earlier in the day). Then they promised me that they would only use the thicker insulation on my deliveries, because even with FedEx I was still getting the occasional melted, sopping wet box (though far more rare than with UPS). Today UPS delivered another hot box with the thin, flimsy insulation. If they can’t guarantee FedEx, and they can’t guarantee proper insulation, they can’t guarantee delivery in a region that’s regularly 110 degrees and higher. I finally just cancelled. Great food when it shows up cold, though. Maybe I’ll give Blue Apron a shot and see if their packing materials are better.

  • One issue I have with HelloFresh is that they don’t have the caloric information listed on the website (you can cross reference the recipes on another part of their website, but it’s annoying)

  • Always enjoy your videos. Searched through your library and could not find anything on hot tubs. With so many options, interested in what model gives the best bang for the buck (not necessarily the cheapest that will fall apart)

  • I like Kettlebell Kitchen but my main downside is throwing away so much waste every week with boxes and how expensive it is to get my macros in meals. Some of these are like $500/week if I did every meal

  • they charge shipping now days $12.11 for the 12 meal plan per week. They also charge sales tax because it is a prepared food. So, this adds to the price per meal.

  • Do you have to reheat in microwave? I am looking to order for my parents and they try not to use the microwave as much. Are the containers oven safe is my question

  • Very bad review, seems she was not interested at all. Plus throwing ingredients like that. Why do you waste you and our time though?

  • The only meal delivery service I have tried so far was Veestro. I really REALLY wanted to like Veestro. I ordered the gluten free meals; three meals per day for seven days and I was quite disappointed. The meals were very expensive and I expected so much more for the price. Unfortunately the food was bland and didn’t settle well in my stomach. The meals are prepackaged and frozen like cheap TV dinners from the grocery store, except TV dinners may be safer.

    They don’t give refunds so I am out of a couple hundred dollars. Obviously I will cancel my membership. Veestro seems to be more hype than health.

  • Cooked food only last around 3 days in the fridge until starting to loose quality. Pasta, fish, rice are the first to get off. But if the meals are all together it will make the food ruined faster.

  • Everyone is telling him to freeze the food but…i personally am used to food already getting delivered frozen. Like in one of those cooling bags with lots of ice to really keep it frozen and in a special truck that’s made to deliver food, so it can’t go bad on the way to your house. Cause if it gets delivered during summer and it takes a few days then it might already be bad before it even arrives at your house.
    But there’s also the fact that you can buy pre made food with meat in it at the grocery store and it’s only refrigerated. That also doesn’t go bad that fast. You can easily keep that in your fridge for a week and it’s still good. Those meals even say that you should keep them in your fridge.

  • ive been doing fresly for almost 2 years on and off. and the best meal I had they dont even have on the menu anymore. I think it was like Jerk chicken or something. I just remember that tasted amazing.

  • I have had drizly deliver my drinks and I am hoping Freshly will be just as awesome as I can’t walk around in a supermarket and get the food I would like….so we will see

  • I don’t think she’s negative, she just seems very critical if these are worth it. I rather someone be critical than super positive and fake about a service.

  • Omg, I had no idea why it was going bad for you, until I read some of the comments informing you to freeze it. Tbh freezing cooked food just doesn’t taste good ��

  • I think it’s hysterical this idiot woman thinks she needs to comment on how “biodegradable” the packaging is. Honey, if that is something you actually care about, you’d go to the supermarket yourself and shop for real food. Having Amazon deliver you a couple meals all pre-packaged like this means you don’t actually care about the double trip needed by a car or biodegradable anything and you don’t actually believe the words you belch out of your mouth because you think you are supposed to say something about biodegradability. What a fraud and a joke this person is! #BlackTransLivesMatter

  • Just eat out once a day. I’m sure freshly costs just the same. Also, the foods at restaurants are fresh. I can get the same dishes at a nice restaurant.

  • Have you tried Tovala? I’ve only been looking for a few hours, but it looks like the best potion especially for your grandparents. I’m liking the option to cook other meals outside of their own. I know they can cook all if Trader Joe’s, but I’d like to know if they’ll do the ones you’ve reviewed. I’m hoping Hello Fresh. That would be a grand slam for me. Thank you, B

  • Nice review. I’ve been using Freshly for a while, and I like it because it helps with portion control. I have a hard time making sure I am not overeating, and without breaking out a food scale and getting OCD about how big my portions are, Freshly does a great job at managing that. I found that the food tastes way better than your typical frozen dishes. The peppercorn steak is one of my favorites. There are quite a few others that I think are also excellent for a microwave meal. I like that the ingredients are clean and the nutrition levels are great. The cons for me are that the price is pretty steep, and there is a lot of packaging you have to deal with when the delivery comes in. This is not a way to save money, unless you are eating out all the time. It is way cheaper to cook your own meals. However, I was finding that I wasn’t cooking enough and then my food would spoil and have to be thrown away. With Freshly, I just grab a meal, microwave it, and it’s ready to go in about 3 minutes. They do try to make it environmentally friendly to dispose of the delivery materials, but bottom line, it does produce a lot of recyclable and waste material. It’s not for everyone, but I guess I would rather pop in a Freshly peppercorn steak than find myself not wanting to cook and end up going to McDonald’s, haha.

  • I don’t understand these meal kits. They aren’t any easier to deal with. Just buy the stuff at the store and do the same thing you see them doing here-cutting, chopping, cooking.

  • What plans is he subscribing too? Seriously? He doesn’t seem to mention what was the cheapest and what was the most expensive. Most plan serves run around $200 a week, so the fact he found one for $150 and $50 is shocking to me and I’d like to know the names.

  • you have to freeze the food so it wont go bad….but i would blame it on the companies..they should bring the 3 meals of the day everyday not in the first day..so it can stay freshly cooked

  • I know everyone’s talking about the food being put in the freezer…but honestly I’m just happy you chose the American Bacon! ����

  • The sarcasm is annoying, it’s like shes being negative about the dumbest things. The food looked good and the way it was packed was super convenient. But girl we get it, you have all the ingredients. Dont fucking order it then. Obviously biased towards home fresh
