Below average meals.
I cancelled my subscription after 2 weeks as the meals just aren’t tasty at all. It’s the same recipes each week so would get boring after more than 2 weeks. Not worth the money in my opinion.
Great for Full Time Shift Workers.
Muscle Chef is great for people that have busy lives.
Most meals have been delicious and its been great for me as I dont have to cook. I'm an Emergency Response Operator and I am severely tired all the time and this makes my life so much easier!
However, I've noticed meals such as the Chicken Pamigian and the Roast Lamb with Diane Sauce to be really peppery or spicy!
The Napoli Sauce on the Chicken Parmy is seriously spicy! I cant handle spice all that well but my partner ordered one and he can handle spice alot more then I can and he eve...n said it was spicy. Whenever I've ordered or made a Chicken Parmy in the past, I've never heard of it being spicy! The Roast Lamb had heaps of cracked pepper on it it and It was really over powering.
Order Number: MYMCI01670878
I placed an order on 24/07, and the items were delivered on 31/07.
I ordered 25 meals, however your website did not advise me that these meals would expire in 7 days! How am I supposed to eat all these meals in 7 days!
I ate one on the 15th (without realising the fact that these meals have already expired) and this lead to diarrhea for almost 3 days now.
Also, i had to throw away 10 meals! Loss of Money, Health, Karma! And the guilt to waste so much food!
I don’t think I am ordering again!
My husband and I both ordered this food. English is his second language and he clicked subscribe thinking it was for an email subscription not realising that they would charge his account $150 every month and automatically re-order food for him. He called them when he realised to cancel the food 6 days before the delivery saying he didn't want the food and they didn't help him. I messaged them on facebook (the option available to contact them on their website) and they didn't read it. I called them this morning and they said they won't cancel t...he food or give a refund and they couldn't transfer me to a manager. That's bloody robbery. 6 days is more than enough time for them to not make the meals for him if as they say this food is actually 'fresh'! This food is disgusting. It's soggy, doesn't heat up correctly and tastes really bad. The texture is gross, disgusting. It was a complete waste of money. Also be careful the delivery driver left the food OUTSIDE the building, he didn't even ring the buzzer or try to open the lobby door. I asked the building manager to show me the cctv footage. What is this company thinking? Just outrageous business behaviours. I will take this further until we have a refund for the order that is apparently coming on Thursday that we told them numerous times we don't want. I hate this business, gross product and even worse customer service. They should be ashamed of themselves.
While some meals are great, others aren’t. Extremely disappointed that there isn’t many keto choices so it’s the same meals every week. Meals are filling but the choice is limited. If you don’t like any type of spice these meals won’t be for you as there is some type of heat in all keto meals. I hope they will have more options and I will definitely come back.
Screwing up the delivery and decided not to deliver for the next few days
Muscle Chef sent me the text that they are delivering between 11am - 1pm. At 1.05pm, there wasn't any news. I messaged their online support team and got to know that they can't locate me based on my address. Bear in mind this is the second time they are delivering the meals. They then told me that they will try again before 6pm. I decided to trust them and didn't have any backup plans. 4.59PM they let me know that they were not delivering until 2 days after. Right when I asked for a refund, their support ended their conversation because it was time to clock off.
For those who doesn’t know how to eat
Bought 2 boxes of these to try out.
Upon eating these after heating for 2 mins 30 seconds as 1 min 30 seconds was still cold, the food was legit disgusting
Hasn’t lived up to expectations yet
Ordered meals knowing they were ok to be delivered and left for 5-8 hours. Got home 7.5 hours after delivery and the meals weren’t hold but they certainly were only just cool. Response from muscle chef was that the two ice packs are for 5-8 hours. Surely in summer they would use more packs. I didn’t eat any in case the temperature was not ok. Ordered again and the delivery date changed when I changed the address. I was advised that If the delivery day was changing that I would be informed and I wasn’t. I chased up why I hadn’t received a text message and they said that it was now due tomorrow... still no text today to confirm tomorrow’s delivery so we will see what happens.
Good at first
Like others here I started out loving the meals and I couldn’t wait to order more. Then the taste began to be like ‘off’ food and was unpleasant. I’m not sure if the food wasn’t sealed properly or if I just got sick of the taste. It’s a shame as I loved them to begin with but after two weeks couldn’t stomach it anymore.
Watch the sealing
One meal was a bit saggy on the covering. Not sealed properly. Rang MMC and they said not to eat it.
Meals need to have all the air out to be safe.
Risotto was too dry and I could not eat it.
Some meals taste great. Some are less than delicious.
I just custom order and do not follow a plan as I cannot tolerate spicy food.
There seems to be a lot of it around nowadays.
Started great but ended bad
The meals at the start were great and we were happy with the portions. Then on our second week, most of the food were really tangy/vinegary and we thought it was off. Quite disappointing.
Ok not great
Some of the meals are great and others not so much. I had the Peking duck tonight and it was utterly disgusting. Tasted like vinegar.
Beef brisket is really good
Not a second time
Ordered 16 separate meals for myself and for my husband. Loved 4 of them. Thought 7 of them were very average and the other 5 were hideous. My husband didn't count what he liked or loathed but we both decided that overall they are not worth a second order. Too, $15 delivery fee is a bit much. Meals also expensive compared to other companies.
I have been enjoying my muscle chef meals until last night when I heated up my garlic and herb chicken, took it out and stirred around and found the chicken was pink, not even cooked, left a message on Facebook and it got deleted, clearly they don't like negative feedback. This is a serious issue and that's how you treat customers.
Good food but bad app and delivery options
Food is great but not a large menu choice. App is very glitchy and crashes constantly. Delivery days no where near enough for metro areas. Delivery fees expensive. Discount codes don’t work
Questions & Answers
I cannot find on the packaging if the chicken is free range or organic. If not then I won’t feel comfortable buying it or is it not stated as you don’t?
I am thinking about trying muscle chef for weight loss. I am also on medication for an underactive thyroid which I have had for many years however, at the moment they are having a hard time stabilizing it and I have gained over 15K in the last 12 months which I would dearly love to lose. would this program assist me and what is the average weight loss per week on same.
My Muscle Chef dinners provide an easy way to eat good food at the regular eating times
The very basic rule for healthy eating
I generally have 10 dinners a week and eat at family 4 nights a week
I have cut out all snacking
MMC dinner at lunch
MMC dinners or family cooked at night
I initially lost 5 kgs a week
Was 100 kgs
Now a steady 85kgs
I have medical conditions like insulin dependant diabetes and my thyroid has settled down now with out medication
MMC is the best decision I have made to my life style
Hope this helps
