You have probably heard of other delivery meal kit services, but Chef’d is different. Besides being the first and only online meal kit marketplace featuring hundreds of recipes from celebrated chefs and highly respected brands, Chef’d doesn’t require no membership or subscription fees. Browse through delicious recipes and order the meals you want, when you want them, and all the fresh, pre-portioned ingredients will arrive at your door within 48 hours.
My Chef’d Experience
I was given the chance to try out Chef’d and was impressed by the overall experience. From the large selection of recipes from famous chefs to the simple to navigate website, Chef’d is a meal kit company like no other.
Narrowing Down the Options
Chef’d lets you browse through the recipes by several different categories, including Lighter Options, Family Friendly, Quick and Easy, Gourmet, and more. Additionally, for those who want to stay on specific dietary or meal plans the company features recipes from Atkins, Weight Watchers, Tone It Up Fresh, American Diabetic Association, Spoon University, and The New York Times Cooking. There is a lot to choose from, so this helps narrow your options down and saves time.
I decided to order the Roasted Kale & Beet Salad, Chicken and Quinoa Pasta, and Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies. I selected my preferred delivery date (Tuesday-Saturday) and the ingredients arrived on time in perfect condition in an extremely well insulated and temperature controlled box.
All the ingredients were individually wrapped, labeled, and proportioned accordingly to easily follow the recipe. The produce, herbs, and meat were pristine, fresh and clean. For those individuals concerned about packaging waste, I admit there is a lot of plastic and bulk. However, I don’t see how it can be reduced, because the boxes are need to be cooled and the food separated to avoid contamination.
Preparing the Meal Kit Recipes
Preparing the meals was as easy as following the step-by-step recipe. There is little measuring needed since the ingredients are already proportioned. The only adjustment I needed to make was altering the time of cooking the beets. They were still too firm at the given recommended cooking time. Other than that, the recipes were spot on and anyone could follow them.

Great for Celebrating a Night In
The service is fantastic for those individuals who want a gourmet meal, but don’t want to eat out at a restaurant. I don’t think it’s realistic for every night– unless you can afford it. No doubt the food is delicious and I would love it all week, but for families like us who are on a strict budget it would be too costly. I think it is great for those special occasions or for nights when you know you can’t make it to the store and want to cook a restaurant quality meal. Personally, we like to eat in more than out, so Chef’d is a fantastic alternative!
