Who is the best Meal Delivery company? Are you looking for a way to simplify dinner after a long day at work? Using a meal delivery service has become an easy way of getting nourishing, flavorful food on the table without the hassle of grocery shopping.

Of course, the most popular reason for using a meal delivery company is the convenience. Customers love being able to order their favorite entrees, side dishes, or even appetizers and desserts, and to choose how much cooking they'd like to do. Some meal delivery services are reheat-and-eat, while others provide you with all of the ingredients you need to create a restaurant-quality meal in your own kitchen.

Hello Fresh

HELLO FRESH Visit Site

Cost:

$8.74 to $9.99 per serving

HelloFresh belongs to the meal delivery category that is best suited for people who enjoy cooking. Each shipment includes step-by-step instructions for taking the farm-fresh ingredients in the box and turning them into a delicious, healthy meal: no grocery shopping required.

When creating your meal delivery program, you'll first need to select from HelloFresh's 3 plans: Classic, Veggie, and Family. The Classic plan has the widest variety of recipes to choose from, the Veggie focuses on - you guessed it - meat-free meals, and the Family plan features recipes designed to keep picky younger eaters at the table.

Next, you need to decide the size of your HelloFresh delivery and how often you'd like to cook: options include serving sizes of 2 or 4 people, and number of meals ranges from 2-4 per week. HelloFresh's dietitians and chefs create 15 new recipes each week; depending on the plan you choose, you can select which ones are included with your delivery, or you can just let HelloFresh decide based on your indicated food preferences. This is a big improvement over previous versions of this meal delivery service, which didn't allow customers to have any way of selecting specific recipes for their weekly meals.

HelloFresh's prices are comparable with other meal delivery businesses, with an average price per serving of less than $10.

As with most meal delivery services, HelloFresh lets you put your shipments on hold whenever you like, so there's no worry that you'll have a box of rotting food on your doorstep when you get home from vacation. There's also no long-term commitments, so you can cancel the service at any time.

While HelloFresh doesn't have a clearly-stated satisfaction guarantee, we saw a number of places on the site that offered to help if anything wasn't right - and, better, yet, numerous customer compliments that said that HelloFresh representatives were very quick to replace or issue credits for any shipments that were damaged or had ingredients that were less-than-edible for any reason.

The meals included in HelloFresh's plans seem to be exactly what you'd hope for: healthy, flavorful, and easy to prepare. Most customers are pleased with the serving sizes, even to the point of having leftovers when they didn't expect them, and overall people like the recipes they receive.

If you like the idea of adding variety to your menu and don't mind spending a half-hour in the kitchen, HelloFresh can easily deliver the ingredients and recipes to your doorstep.

Harry & David

HARRY & DAVID Visit Site

Cost:

From $31.99 to $379.99

Have you ever been invited to a work party, community potluck, or even hosted an event where making an impression matters? Did you draw a blank on what you could bring, or even feel some anxiety over what recipe in your repertoire could live up to the expectations? The next time you find yourself in that predicament, you should consider letting Harry & David do the work.

You may already know of this business because of their long reputation for helping people with their gift-giving needs: gourmet foods, gift baskets, chocolates and more. Harry & David also has good selection of reheat (if necessary) and serve, delectable appetizers, entrees, and other choices, whether you want to be the hero of your office party or just take the stress out of planning a special-occasion dinner in your own home.

Although their selection isn't as broad as some of the meal delivery services we reviewed - just under 40 selections to choose from - you can still find a good assortment that ranges from appetizers like an Antipasto Wine Pairing Collection to mouth-watering main courses like Salmon Wellington or a Steak and Lobster Feast. Most of the choices for meal delivery have customer reviews in their descriptions, to help you know what to expect when your food comes. Harry & David's best-seller, with more than five dozen reviews and a 4.5/5-star average, is the Sliced Ham and Turkey, priced at $64.99.

Harry & David has a superb reputation for customer satisfaction. Should you get a meal delivery that doesn't meet your expectations (or your party guests'), you should have no problem getting a refund or replacement. Another reason customers like using Harry & David is their Celebrations Passport membership. For an annual fee of $29.99, you get a year of free shipping across a group of brands that includes Simply Chocolate, The Popcorn Factory, and 1-800-Flowers. Even if you only plan on ordering a few times within a year, the savings could be significant; shipping costs on a single item at Harry & David's can be as much as $11.99, so the Passport would pay for itself quickly over two or three gift-giving or dining occasions.

If you need a special-occasion meal for yourself or for an event, Harry & David is a solid choice. But, for many people who are looking for meal delivery services, this provider's options are pretty limited to once-in-a-while treats, not every day reheat-and-eat dinners or fresh-and-healthy meals to nourish them at the end of the working day.

As these services have grown in popularity, the types of meals and plans has expanded as well. Has your doctor recently put you on a special diet, and you're not sure how to incorporate it into your lifestyle? Whether you're adapting to a diet that's low in carbs, diabetic-friendly, or even gluten-free, you'll find a meal delivery program that can help.

Are you interested in becoming a vegetarian but unfamiliar with how to create a balanced meal? Once again, there's a meal delivery service for that - use it for a few weeks to get ideas of lunches and dinners that you can recreate, or for as long as you like as you adapt to your clean, green way of eating.

As you consider which meal delivery service is best for you, you'll quickly see that they vary greatly when it comes to price, preparation, and types of food offered. Keep these criteria in mind as you decide which company fits your needs:

  • Reputation. What do past and current customers have to say about the meals they received and the overall experience, from ordering to delivery?
  • Cost. What will you spend for the meal delivery plan you choose, whether you opt for a la carte entrees or regularly-scheduled weekly or monthly shipments?
  • Variety. Does the meal delivery provider have an appetizing range of flavors and cuisines to choose from? Will you be able to select meals that you'll actually want to eat?
  • Satisfaction Guarantee. If you're unhappy with the service, the quality of the food, or the condition of the meals at the time of delivery, can you get a refund or a replacement?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best meal delivery services available today. We hope these reviews help you find the service that puts the food that you're craving on the table right away!
