New York, New York (PressExposure) February 27, 2012 -- Prepared Meal Delivery Reviews, the Internet's top website for meal delivery reviews, announced their meal winners for 2012. Awarding first, second and third place in four categories, based on the results tallied by carefully examining consumer reviews post to their website.
Prepared Meal Delivery Reviews is a website allowing those who participate in delivered meal programs a place to rate and rank their preferences. Those interested in having meals delivered to their homes can visit the website, read the reviews and determine their choice of prepared meals to have delivered. There is a special rating category for gourmet food as well as the best diet meals.
The awards were decided by ranking services based on reviews of actual consumers. Categories receiving awards are:
Best Prepared Meals
Best Diet Delivery Meals
Best Gourmet Food
Best Gourmet Steaks
Consumers ranked each delivered meal company on criteria including:
ease of website ordering
reheating instructions and convenience
customer service offered
individual shipping experience
quality and taste of delivered food
overall rating, including value for the money and whether the consumer would recommend the prepared meal company to family and friends
The competition was stiff among the competing companies, with the Best Diet Meals category containing over 17 entrants. Well-known plans such as The Biggest Loser, NutriSystem and The Zone Diet competed against independent corporations such as Bistro MD, Freshology and My Cuisine Delight. Having diet meals delivered straight to the door has become the norm for dieters, making the results of this category one of the more anticipated.
Equally as stiff was the competition in the Best Gourmet Steaks Division. This category saw seven entrants with the well-known Omaha Steak Company, Allen Brothers, Colorado Prime Steaks, Hearst Ranch, Kansas City Steaks, My Butcher Steaks and the Chicago Steak Company.
Gourmands will appreciate the results of the Best Gourmet Food category. For those wishing to inject a little luxury into their lives and their meals, there are several companies specializing in gourmet treats and goodies. This diverse category pitted bread expert Wolfermans against seafood experts Lobster Gram, Lobster Anywhere and The Crab Station, Appetizers To Go, Gourmet Station, PastaCheese and SeaBear.
The Prepared Meals category saw over 13 entrants. Perhaps no other area of competition had so many consumer reviews. Offering meal choices such as diabetic meals, kosher meals, fresh meals, frozen meals, low sodium meals, low carb meals and sous vide cooking, made for a broad category. Again, well-known meal companies such as Home Bistro and Fresh Direct were compared to other top companies including DineWise, Artiko Chef, Magic Kitchen, and Healthy Chef Creations.For a list of the winners, consumers are invited to visit the website at http://www.Prepared-Meal-Delivery-Reviews.com and find a summary of each company, how consumers reviewed their products, and the winning services for each category.

The goal of the website is to help those interested in having meals delivered be better able to choose a company based on their individual dietary and financial needs.
