  • Scam

    By Khatcher Orbeli
    This app used to be great--I would use it to formulate ideas about what to cook on a given night. However, they've started to charge $40/year for mediocre-at-best recipes, and now this app is a useless scam as far as I'm concerned. And the fake 5-star reviews aren't fooling anyone. (No sane, consenting human adult would compliment Sam Sifton's recipes, as per the first review I read before writing this.)
  • Great app - could use a bit more to make it better

    By annetteebe
    I love NYT recipes! I love reading the forum commentary and definitely read the comments about each recipe I am interested in. Here are some suggestions though. I would really like to be able to vote whether or not a comment is helpful within the app (option only available on desktop version). I would like to be able to comment back directly to a comment (like to ask a question to a commenter). I would like the option to save a specific comment to my recipe box (Allrecipes does this. Very useful.) Lastly - if you accidentally click on the “stars”, which is a common place to click to view comments on many other websites, you can’t back out of the mistake - you are forced to rate a recipe that you probably have not even made. This has happened to me multiple times! Ugh. (Note this last comment may be in the phone and not desktop or app version. Cant remember. But it is most definitely a flaw).
  • NYT cooking is great

    By helenaut
    Best online recipe box out there. Gorgeous pictures without being excessive
  • Plethora of great recipes at your fingertips

    By Literary Fan
    Great app—makes cooking easier in many ways: (1) sort through recipes for ideas on the go; (2) check ingredients when shopping to make certain nothing is forgotten; (3) easy to follow directions; and (4) helpful and practical comments from others about what works, what doesn’t, and what can be improved, streamlined, etc. I’m always finding inspiration and the sorting into easy, fast, etc. categories is super helpful. Would’ve given 5 stars but some recipes call for ingredients that are hard to find outside of Manhattan or via gourmet mail order stores and work-arounds aren’t offered.
  • Updates aren’t always for the best

    By Whatsmynickname
    I lost all my non-NYTCooking recipes for a while, they’re now visible again. Every time there’s an update, something goes south. The recipes themselves are excellent, I hope the app itself improves.
  • Reliably delicious!

    By HeatherSageYoga
    The NY Times Cooking app is my go-to cookbook for everything from inspiration to fast meals with what’s left over in my fridge. It keeps getting better as it grows with new recipes being added all the time. I also enjoy the collections and cooking guides.
  • Family Friend

    By Awake in Los Angeles
    Love this app. It’s like having an extended network of aunts who share their best recipes and advice every day.
  • Love the recipes!

    By MaryMarguerite
    I’m not the best cook in the world and I’ve been very successful with these recipes. They end up tasting good and are, for the most part, easy to prepare.
  • This app has made me a culinary explorer

    By Anne in DC
    I love cooking, but even so it’s so easy to get in a rut and cook the same things over and over again. This app allows me to try great new dishes. The notes section is a real value too, because I can read how others altered a recipe to make it work better or them.
  • Holding me hostage

    By global nn
    I'm fine with you charging from this point forward, but you should have made a new app!!! Changing the app and denying access to old recipes bookmarked is a new low. This is not what you offered when I downloaded the app!!!
