Who has the best Prepared Meals? How many times have you come home after a long day and stared blankly at your refrigerator or pantry, trying to figure out what to eat? Or stopped at the drive-thru for fast food because the thought of coming up with something for dinner was just too much?

You're not alone. For people who'd like the convenience of fast food with the benefits of home cooking, Prepared Meals are the answer. For every imaginable palate and preference, there's a prepared meal service that can help. Several of today's most popular services send you high-quality, often organic ingredients - including fresh produce like shallots and herbs - saving you the hassle of planning your meals and going to the store.

Cost:

Up to $23.99 per serving

Home Bistro specializes in prepared-from-fresh, delivered frozen meals. They offer a decent variety of menus, such as Individual Meals, Chef's Choice, Meal Combos, and SUPERBowls.

All of the Prepared Meals delivered by Home Bistro can either be boiled-in-bag or prepared in the microwave. Either method has your food ready to eat in 10 minutes or less. Some of the entrees created by Home Bistro are Mediterranean Tapenade Salmon, Artichoke-Lemon Steak with Vegetables, and Roasted Harissa Shrimp with Gratin.

What you pay depends on the plan you choose. The Chef's Choice Plan includes 10 meals for $134.99, for instance. Or, you can select the Table for Two collection and get 20 meals for $259.99. Many individual entrees are available; these start at $16.29.

It's not easy to locate, but there is a filter function that allows you to sort through what Home Bistro sells according to your dietary needs, like gluten-free, paleo, or diabetic-friendly. You'll see that dropdown box on the top left part of the screen after you've selected the meal category you want, such as Combos or Individual.

That's not the only thing that's hard to find with Home Bistro. You also won't find a refund policy - because they specifically don't offer one, "due to the nature of shipping perishable meals". Most competitor services enthusiastically promise that they'll replace or refund any ingredients or entire shipments that don't arrive intact and edible. In comparison, Home Bistro says that customers can email them at their support account within 24 hours if their package has any issues. Especially due to the nature of perishable ingredients, Home Bistro has taken an unacceptable approach to customer satisfaction.

In fact, you should expect to be unsatisfied with this service. Almost every single one of their customer reviews include phrases like "disappointing", "poor customer service", and "horrible food". Is it any surprise that Home Bistro says that "all sales are final"?

In checking out Home Bistro's contact information, we discovered that they operate another Prepared Meals service under the name of Dinewise. Unfortunately, that brand has similarly lackluster customer reviews.

Even though they've been selling Prepared Meals for many years, Home Bistro doesn't deliver in any respect: bad-tasting food and zero customer satisfaction efforts are just two of the reasons you'll be choosing another service.

Continued from above

If you have a loved one that needs to start eating a special diet for diabetes or other medical issues, you can choose a prepared meals company that offers ready-to-reheat meals packaged similarly to a TV dinner and that have been carefully created by nutritionists specifically for that condition.

On the other hand, maybe you've been tasked with bringing a mind-blowing main course to an important company function, but your skills in the kitchen are limited to boiling water and burning toast. No problem: just choose a Prepared Meals service that focuses on gourmet-level, special occasion entrees like chicken cordon bleu or even surf-and-turf.

When deciding which company is a good fit for your delivery of Prepared Meals, you'll soon notice that there's a wide variety to choose from. How do you select the one that's best for you? Here are some things to consider as you look at each service:

  • Menu. What does the provider offer? Can you choose from many different plans, like Vegetarian or Mediterranean? If you're trying to meet a special dietary need, like gluten-free or keto-friendly, will there be options for you? Does the type of Prepared Meals they send - reheat-and-eat vs. some cooking required - work for your situation?
  • Price. What will it cost to get your Prepared Meals? Can you choose to buy specific entrees a la carte, or do you have to buy a package?
  • Amount of Food. If you have a large family, is there a plan that will satisfy everyone? Are the serving sizes enough to fill you up?
  • Customer Service and Reputation. What have other people said about the experience of buying Prepared Meals from this business? Are packages delivered on time, with ingredients that are still fresh and properly refrigerated? If not, does the company's customer service department respond appropriately with a refund or credit?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Prepared Meals Delivery Companies available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right company to deliver the kind of meals you want, directly to your doorstep!
