A DAD opened a meal kit delivery box to start cooking dinner and found a 1970s projector inside.
Shaun Tipple, 37, was expecting the ingredients for a chicken stir fry.
But he was faced with the 1977 Sankyo Sound 700 for Super 8mm film.
Shaun, of Bexley, South East London, said: “It’s useless and we don’t know what to do with it.”
Project manager Shaun, wife Tiffany, 37, and their three children had a £42 Domino’s delivery instead.
The couple pay £57 a month for Gousto meals.
Shaun complained to Gousto who offered him £7 credit on his account
A spokesman said: “We were sorry to hear about this unusual incident. We offered compensation.”
The projector, delivered by Yodel, is thought to be for a customer in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion and will be re-directed.
Shaun added: “Me and Tiff are both busy people and our kids are young so having meal plans like this really works for us.
