My Muscle Chef (page 2 of 24)

4.8 from 468 reviews

First time buyer- hooked!!!

I researched around for a while and finally decided on my muscle chef because of the menu AND the options I recieved for delivery. I get it delivered Early Monday (2am) morning so it's ready for me to bring inside once I get up for work, chuck in the freezer, grab one to take for lunch and head out the door. Its so much more convenient than its competitors who only offer one chance to order a week (so if you forget- you've missed your chance that week).
Then i tried the food.... HOLY MOLEY IT IS GOOOOOOOD!!!!!
The Beef kofta with cauliflower curry is soooo delicious. The grilled garlic and herb chicken risotto tastes just like Mums! As soon as you open the microwave door, the most amazing smells come out and it just tastes so delicious!
Definitely ordering for next week!!!

Recipes have preservatives and thickeners

I've ordered My Muscle Chef a few times now and have tried a few of the different meals. What I was originally drawn to was the freshness and the simple ingredient lists that listed REAL FOODS. I just received my latest order and have found some new "additions" to the ingredients list. These include: Flavour Enhancer (635), preservatives (200), artificial sweetener, "Colours", Thickeners (vegetable gum), chicken booster, vegetable booster... Granted, these were newer meals that I was trying, but I was disappointed none the less.
If this is something that bothers you, I would urge you to check the ingredients list before choosing a meal, some are still okay (Chicken Burrito Bowl and Moroccan beef tagine being the best I have tried).
I've also noticed that the meals have gotten a lot "saucier" than they used to be, another cost saving measure no doubt. I counted 10 pieces of ravioli in my meal and the container was full of sauce. The
I once purchased 5.4 meals but ended up throwing them away due to the sheer number of additives in the ingredients (and awful flavours). I hope that now Muscle Chef have purchased 5.4 that they do not continue down the reduced quality, high-additive route and terrible sauce to food content ratio to save costs during their expansion.

The Best I Have Tried

These meals are truly the best I have tried, the quality, freshness and packaging are 2nd to none and I have tried quite a few brands. I am a fitness instructor and for me to have the convenience of high quality nutritious and tasty prepared meals on hand is extremely important.

Tasty and filling

I've ordered these meals for a few weeks. When you eat alone, you just don't spend the time necessary to buy and cook anything interesting. No more batch cooking the same two meals all week. No more take-away or impulse purchases when that gets tiresome. And 'I just ate' is a wonderful excuse to avoid expensive meals when friends invite you out!

There's so much variety! And they're healthy! I've already lost 2.5kg of excess weight (though I've got a long way to go)!

Kangaroo is an interesting choice - the Roo Kofta was amazing - and it's only the 2nd time in my life I enjoyed eating roo meat.

Every meal I've tried (except for the braised beef and potatoes - it's not inspiring & always comes out of the microwave cold) is amazing! I love the tastes, textures, freshness, it's all great! And they get me so much closer to my macro targets (and most meals are already in MyFitnessPal)!

Delivery is straightforward. I love the overnight option in my area, it's way smarter than leaving food out in the sun all day. Online ordering options are easy. And I think I'll reuse the woolen insulation mats as supplementary curtains once winter mornings go sub-zero! I'm certain they'll cut my heating bills - which can become astronomical around here!

Would be nice if there was an option to leave the ice bricks out for next week's driver to collect for potential reuse. Chemicals don't grow on trees! But I can live with it.

Hi Dom, We're so glad to hear you've had a positive experience with our Customer Service team. They are committed to ensuring our loyal customer base receives top tier treatment and are always glad to help someone out. Stay tuned for new meal additions and promotions in the future! Best, Team MMC

You’re stupid if you order anything else!

I’ve meal prepped, I’ve cooked, I’ve tried so many different companies. My Muscle Chef is the bomb. It tastes so good! Arrived so quickly. I really appreciate the fact that meals don’t get watery when reheated. LOVE that it’s vaccum sealed not just a normal seal.

Oh and their website made is so bloody easy to swap meals. Well done champs.

Hi Noah, We're overjoyed to hear that you're loving My Muscle Chef the most after trying several other brands. Taste, efficiency and freshness is so important to us - that's why we've introduced vacuum sealed packaging! Not only does it mean a longer shelf life (of up to 10 days - amazing!) but also that no preservatives or nasties are added to the meals. We're actually working on a total website transformation so stay tuned for a fresh new look that matches our reimagined packaging - but don't worry, the filter features and ease of swapping meals will be a part of this. Kind Regards, Team MMCWoohoo! Love it. I'm literally giving meals away at work for people to try itGlad to hear that, Noah! Don't forget to use your referral code (displayed on the dashboard when you sign into your account on our website) so that family and friends can score a sweet discount too!

Perfect solution

The meals are delicious and varied and are exactly what I need in terms of balance of carbs and protein to steadily build size. I am very happy with my results. Thanks guys!

Hey Tim, Thank you for the kind words! There's nothing we like to hear more than our customers achieving their goals with the help of our meals. We love making the meals just as much as you love eating them! Kind regards, Team MMC

Great product and excellent service

The food is great, and service is fantastic, I was immediately offered a free replacement after my first box was stolen after delivery. I’m really happy with the product and the service received, the only feedback I have is that the packaging could be more discreet as food is an ever increasing target for theives.

Hey Sean, More than happy to help! Our goal is always to get healthy and delicious meals to our customers and we don't mind going that extra mile to achieve this. In regards to the packaging, we do want to preserve that joy you feel when you see a Muscle Chef box at your doorstep but it is difficult to balance that feeling with making the packaging more discreet. If you need to make delivery arrangements such as a specific location for the box to be left, just email us at team@mymusclechef.com and we can definitely help out! Kind regards, Team MMC

Delicious pre-made meals!

Such an amazing selection of great meals, that taste just as if you'd cooked them yourself (if not better).
I was looking for a way to eat healthy, muscle building food without having to labour away for hours each week doing shopping and food prep etc. These guys make it all so much easier, and much more nutritional specific than I could myself.
Delicious convenience is the key here, and for the variety of meals you get the cost is much less than making each one yourself!

Keep up the good work guys and keep on innovating with different meals.

Hey there, Thank you for the kind feedback! From the beginning we've always understood how time consuming it is to meal prep nutritionally balanced meals. We were definitely born out of necessity because who wouldn't want more free time to do things they enjoy? Nothing better than knowing you've got your food set and ready to go for you every week without needing to worry! Kind regards, Team MMC

Poor quality food with a bonus feather

Got the cajun chicken from a Dodgey IGA and not only was it tasteless (I was hungry), there was a bird's feather included.
Disgusting and feel like it was made in a garage

Needs a return/reuse scheme to eliminate excessive waste

The meals are of a big variety, very flavorful and easy to order, but with the ease of it all comes the downside of thousands of pieces of waste. There needs to be a return/reuse scheme with the ice packs. Getting 3-4 big ice packs every order is not practical, multiply this by the thousands of customers MMC has. Even if you save some, you are soon overwhelmed with them. I try donating them, but places don't really want them. I recycle the plastic containers, soft plastics and get use out of the wool, but the ice packs need some work. Either make them out of safe materials to be flushed down the toilet or sink, or have an option for people to only ask for 1 ice pack at a time. Something needs to be done! Otherwise it is a great product, but my moral compass really hates ordering them due to all the waste created for the sake of convenience. If they had a way to reduce their footprint, I would give them 5 stars.

Hey Jess, thanks for taking the time to leave a review for our service. As a company we are constantly working to improve our processes in order to reduce the impact of the packaging we use. Here are our tips for recycling and disposal of the packaging: - The wool lining is biodegradable and can be placed within your nature green waste bin (bin with a lime green lid) - The cardboard delivery box can be placed in your recyclables bin (bin with yellow lid) - The plastic covering the wool liner can be recycled with soft plastics. - The ice packs are non-toxic and can be poured into the drain with tap water to dilute it, and the plastic containing the ice pack can be recycled with soft plastics. Any further questions please feel free to get in touch with our Support team by email team@mymusclechef.com or calling 1300 364 993 Thanks!

Can only expect so much

After using You Foodz for a while and not really satisfied i decided to give My Muscle Chef a go (in Brisbane), I have come to the realisation you can only expect so much from these meals, a large portion of the meals where average at best. My one and only order.

Timely DeliveryYes

Best out of them all by far !

I have tried all the meal delivery companies in the Sydney area - Muscle Chef was the last one to try before I gave up with them and wow!! I was blown away by the quality and flavour of the meals. These meals are amazing compared to the rest in terms of packaging, flavour , quality and texture. No more chewy chicken, flavourless, or just poor quality meats, no more watery frozen veges, no more beef like rubber - muscle chef is a keeper !

Questions & Answers

No answers

Do you heat food with what you packed vaccum Seal? Or put food on the plate and heat them?? What's the best option???
1 answer
Great question Sarah! Our recommendation for best results is to heat your meals in the container they arrive in with the vacuum sealed film - just be sure to remove the paper sleeve first! Otherwise you can remove the film before heating, or take the meal out of the container altogether and heat it on a microwave safe plate. We suggest heating meals for 1min to begin with, then heating for an additional 20-30s until it reaches the desired temperature. Hope that helps, if you have any further questions please feel free to get in touch with our Support crew via email us team@mymusclechef.com or call 1300 364 993 thanks!

Can you eat the meals cold?
1 answer
Hi there, Our Mymusclechef meals are precooked meals. They can be eaten as cold or microwave for a better result.
