I've used it a few times for fish/meat but I found no difference in quality with the local shops. Fish in Bangalore is brought from Andhra and that results in a 2-3 days delay. Salt and chemicals are added to keep it fresh.
I was expecting Freshtohome to be better but on one occasion the fish wasn't that fresh. It wasn't bad, but not really fresh. After that I stuck with local shops and stopped buying from Freshtohome.
freshtohome is fairly ok when it comes to meat. They supply lamb which is a little difficult to source in Madras. You get goat everywhere easily. BTW Biryani tastes better if made with lamb than with goat.
Problem is F2H, they charge you more if you buy fish. They may show lots of varieties not seen in east coast. But when you order, most of the time, it gets cancelled. If it is in stock, they show the price (let us say) as 350 per kg in the main page but when you go to the cart, they calculate for wastage in an arbitrary way and charge you about 500 per kg eventually.
Bottomline is it is convenient but costly. Another thing is the items are not so fresh. They charge about Rs.30-60 for shipping which gets waived only when you cross Rs.900/-
Thank you. It's always good to have more choices. I am having such a terrible time with my LG washing machine that I may give an Amazon appliance a chance next time I am in the market to buy something
My 2 cents on this: If the company is not in manufacturing, they will not be designing the product. Which means, the manufacturer is left to design whatever they want. Usually, this means that if a Amazon Basics product will fail, they will try to repair it by the technician of that company. If it doesn't get repaired, they "may" replace it.
Now, it all boils down to who the manufacturer is. If they are someone in China (even someone in India will be no better) who has copied the stuff, the design will remain poor instead of thoughtful.
Which is why I try to stay away from such label marketing.
I ordered the Oral-B toothbrush at Rs.3,800. When it arrived, I found that there was a label with that MRP, and another one showing a reduced MRP of Rs.3,199.
I suppose I'm happy. I got the toothbrush
Still, why pay ×100 over why pay more than what you'll pay at a brick and mortar store?

Wasn't this mentioned in the home appliances thread?
True.. I have been using one. Only thing with these brushes is that you should keep stock of a good number of heads since supply is not so consistent.
And ignore the instructions to throw them away when they are still brushing. This is the electric tooth brush scam: get people buying several heads a year, each of which costs far more than ordinary toothbrush. Oral B have these bristles that change colour: I ignore them!
