About Chef'd Meal kits
The founder of Chef’d came across a recipe one day and wondered why there wasn’t a button to push to order that meal immediately. That desire and vision was the catalyst for forming Chef’d. Chef’d is a meal kit company with no subscriptions.
 
A customer can buy one meal, or get a weekly meal plan kit. You can specify dietary restrictions (gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, etc) and get recommendations based on your personal needs. You can also select meal filters.
 
For example if you want a “Quick and Easy” meal or “Family Friendly” or even types such as “Breakfast” meals, you can select a filter to view meals that fall into those categories. There are options for skill level, spice level and type of protein. You can also select if the meal is for two or four people. 
 
There are over 500 meals to choose from and Chef’d continuously adds new recipes, partnering with world famous chefs and culinary influences to bring diverse and delicious meals.

Online reviews/Complaints:

Reviewers seemed to be happy with their experiences with Chef’d. Some of the highlights for them were the variety, and opportunity to order often or not often. Lack of commitment was a big positive for consumers.  The meals were quick to prepare and the ingredients were high quality and often difficult to source locally. Also convenience - at your door with each ingredient separated in packages made it easy. (Although a reviewer did mention the impact the packaging has on the planet.) 
 
Some concerns noted were that for beginner cooks the recipes might be a little intimidating. The recipes can bounce between cutting raw vegetables to cutting raw meat without mentioning use of a different cutting board. The cook has to have that awareness. It is a more expensive way to cook - probably comparable to the price the meal would cost in a restaurant.

Competitors and Alternatives:

Chef'd vs Hello Fresh
Hello Fresh tends to be less expensive but also doesn’t offer the range of meals that Chef’d has available. The meals tend to be slightly easier to prepare. They have an emphasis on locally sourced food. 
 
Chef'd vs Home Chef
The cost of Home Chef is slightly less per meal than Chef’d. There are food add-on options and there is a marketplace to buy needed cooking tools. The food is generally not as flavorful as Chef’d and there are fewer options for dietary restrictions.
 
Chef'd vs Plated
The cost of plated is similar to Chef’d, perhaps slightly less. They use antibiotic free meats sourced from family farms. You have to sign up for a weekly plan. The plans are flexible but one benefit of Chef’d is you can opt to just buy one meal.

Where to Buy?

You can order directly online at www.chefd.com.  Some Chef’d products are available in select stores such as Target and Gelson’s and you can also by select meal kits on Amazon. The company also has an easy to use iPhone app.
