Amazing!! Easy & simple meals! 5/5
Let me start off by saying I’ve never really enjoyed cooking mostly because I took a “creative & experimental” approach. I have since learned recipes are where it’s at! This nifty app saved me money. My grocery bill was literally $32 and that included coolant for my car which was $11. This app enabled me not to overbuy which I notoriously do and food inevitably goes to waste because I’m a single person. My only complaint is that I wasn’t able to export the grocery list to print (not sure if that’s included in the paid version which I will happily pay for if it is) that would save additional time and effort. The recipes are delicious! They included ingredients that have been in my pantry for (Don’t Judge me) probably years untouched! Balsamic vinegar anyone? No? K...anyway the food ended up tasting delicious and I have a renewed sense of confidence in my ability to cook!... Score!!
What happened ? 2/5
By Cleopatra peanut
I used this app regularly for months. Then a few months ago I decided to use my cookbooks for a while to see which ones I wanted to keep. I pop back to my app today and it seems nothing works the same. I used to be able to pick my meals. It would offer four but I could adjust them. Even tapping into the menu and meals seems to be different. Can’t put my finger on it but I know it’s not what it was.
I do not recall it being a paid app. I guess they took what made it good and are making us pay. Well it’s not $50-60 a year good. Sorry.
Great solution for busy people! 4/5
Really good recipes, that are easy to follow and you don’t need to be a 5 star chef to make. Shopping list is intuitive and extremely helpful. The only thing keeping me from purchasing the full version is that it doesn’t support screen rotation. I use the App on my kitchen iPad while cooking and I can’t leave it plugged in while using the App because it doesn’t rotate 90 or 180 degrees. A true iPad version would be great as well.
Amazing app! 5/5
I love everything about this app! The meals are so delicious and healthy and easy to prepare. The portions are great (although I double it because I have 2 teenagers. And any leftovers go to work with my husband in the morning). The instructions are AWESOME as you never have to scroll up to see the quantity of the ingredient. They have the ingredient and quantity right underneath each step so you don’t have to go back and forth. I love the hands free function! I used that last night when I was sopping cod in egg batter, then bread crumbs. They thought of everything! I’m telling everyone about this app! If you hate cooking, you might change your mind after using this app!!
We love this app! It allows us to cook things we would have never tried! If you’re a fan of HelloFresh or Blue Apron but don’t want to spend $60 a week, use this! By doing your own grocery shopping, you still get the experience without spending a fortune. I’ve told all of my friends about this app. Highly recommend!
App needs work 3/5
Super useful and the recipe I tried was a family pleaser. However, you can’t easily move between days or weeks to look back on what you’ve done or what you’re going to do. That’s an unnecessary constraint and annoying when I want to make meals out of order. I don’t need to be as regimented as the app would force one to be. Therefore, the world of online recipes is just as useful. When hey improve the app to be more flexible, Mealime will better for me.
Better than subscription meal plans 5/5
The recipes are so good and so simple!
It’s better, cheaper and more eco friendly than subscription meal services.
It’s food I’ll actually eat and enjoy! And the prep time is short.
Shopping made simple with organized shopping lists.
Couldn’t be easier, more economical or delicious!
This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I’m pescatarian and was so pleased that they recognized that dietary option (so many either include meat or are straight vegan)!
An absolute lifesaver! 5/5
This app is as convenient as a meal-delivery subscription, without the cost! We love how easy everything is to follow, and I think it's even making my husband enjoy cooking.
This app is absolutely incredible and with the low carb plan i lost around 20 pounds effortlessly. The meals are delicious and it gets me in the kitchen learning these dishes that Would have never crossed my mind. Highly recommend. It’s amazing.

Calories should be visible without paying 1/5
Simple calorie count per serving should not be a $ feature. Come on now.
I’m not usually one to write reviews! But omg, love love LOVE this app. I’m beginning a new diet and this makes it so much easier to stay in my lane and eliminates any dishes that don’t correlate with my diet! ALSO, it creates a shopping list for you so you won’t leave anything out. No glitches, no annoying ads, just a nice clean app!
Cool app, needs more recipes 4/5
Pros: First two weeks loved this app. Easy and intuitive, meals very healthy and quick to prepare. Cons: same recipes every week with 1 or 2 additions. There isn't a Master recipe list for the week, lists built per recipe. Added 4 stars for the pros and hoping cons will be addressed.
Really good meals 5/5
I’ve been using this for about 4 weeks and the meals are great. So much so that I bought a years subscription. My only so-so meal had tuna in it, but I’m pretty sure it was the tuna I used.
The Greatest 5/5
This app has instantly made a positive change in my cooking and eating habits! I’m excited to cook the recipes, and thankful that I get an automatic healthy meal plan that is free of anything gross (like olives!)
I’ve been sharing this with all of my friends, especially if they are on diets that require restricting ingredients. Some have even gone on to share it with their friends!
The recipes are easy, with normal ingredients and they do a good job using the other half of that green pepper in the other recipe, so you don’t have too many random ingredients left over. The portions are good, too.
I’m definitely stealing the cookware list to build my wedding registry!
The only thing that's ever got me to enjoy cooking 5/5
The title says it all. This is the only thing that's ever got me to enjoy cooking and keep up with it. Makes my life easier plus the food is all amazing. I've got so many others addicted to this app too. I'm all about supporting things that work.
Love It 5/5
By The productive anonymous user
This app has been the answer to my prayers! It takes the guesswork out of cooking delicious and healthy and different meals. Before I had this app, every time I stepped into the kitchen, I had to make gazillion decisions about what to cook. I was eating a lot of the same food. With this app, I have different recipes—a good balance of fish and poultry and game (I need my protein)—and the recipes are so tasty! And I am not agonizing about what I will eat. I actually look forward to cooking AND to eating! Unless this sounds like I am gaining weight, let me say that I have lost weight, so now my friends are asking me how I did it. I lost weight with this app and with Jerzy’s Happy Body workout (no, no one is paying me for this! I write out of pure gratitude that both this meal app and the workout program have improved my lifestyle!)
I use this app with an online service to do the grocery shopping, so now I am saving time and can take a breather! I cannot stop praising this app and have told all my friends about it.
So easy to use! 5/5
We have been using this app for almost 6 weeks now! We sit down with our sale ad from the grocery and plan the meals from there. We have used home meal kit deliveries and find this app much less expensive while still minimizing food waste! Love the different eating style choices (paleo, low carb, vegetarian, etc.) and the ability to mark foods you choose not to eat.
Keep up the great work!!!
❤I LOVE THIS! Thank you for inspiring us! 5/5
By Swampy D
Cooking fresh was not a part of my growing up (prepackaged / instant or frozen was my mom!) I didn't know what quinoa wuz until now... I was thinking about trying a boxed dinner delivery service until I found you! Thank you for making cooking come alive in my kitchen.
❤ the customized diet preference (vegetarian, Paleo, gluten-free, etc. recipes! ❤ the pics and e-z instructions ❤ likes/dislike foods (such as brussel sprouts) ❤ the substitute suggestions ❤ the the grocery list!!!
Thumb’s sideways 3/5
I love the entire concept of this app, but it can’t really help me because I’m vegan, and there’s no vegan options whatsoever (only vegetarian). Vegetarian and vegan and very different. It’s still a good app!
Quick, easy, healthy & delicious meals 5/5
I cannot say enough about how much I love this app. The meals are delicious with ingredients that bring great flavor yet keep the dishes healthy. Cooking 5 days a week with this app along with my regular exercise I’ve lost 37 pounds. Thanks Mealime!
Easy, fresh, healthy, delicious meals! 5/5
I tried, what seems like, every single cooking and recipe app out there and Mealime is the only one I actually use. The pictures are enticing and the meals are easy to prepare (30 mins) and absolutely delicious. I have limited time to shop/cook and this app is so practical that anyone can squeeze at least 2 meals a week. The meals are for everyone - they are balanced so that even my traditional meat loving husband, my picky son, and I (wannabe health-nut vegetarian) love everything.
Great app 5/5
Does everything it says it will. I used to try and make a list and figure out my meals but now mealtime gets it done for me and plans out everything from the shopping to meal preparation based on what I choose. Thanks!
No dairy-free option 3/5
By Andew M
This app seems decent enough with the meal suggestions, but I can't believe that dairy free is not one of the allergy options.
Heck yeah 5/5
I use this app ALL the time. I can’t afford the pro subscription yet, but I hope it’s still around when I can!
Love it 5/5
Did emeals for a year and wasn’t happy with them after a few months.... so far loving his! Meals you love! Like how you can tell the app what foods you don’t like and it won’t show recipes of those items!
Best cooking app so far 5/5
I love this app. The fact that it has a grocery list makes it the best cooking app I have!
By C. Evans
Just started today! Made the chicken fajitas it was delicious!
Great, could be better. 4/5
I think this app is wonderful! For someone like me who is allergic to gluten, having an app that can come up with all kinds of different recipes I can try is amazing! I just have a suggestion though. Can you include an option in your next update where you can tell the app what kind of appliances you do or do not have? I don't have a working oven, but it seems almost everything I choose requires one. It would be nice to be provided a list that is even more personalized to my situation. Thank you!
This app is awesome! 5/5
My family has been cooking with Meal Lime for couple of months now. The meals are very tasty and recipes easy to prepare.
What you’re looking for!!! 5/5
The grocery list alone is worth the price. I follow a ketogenic diet and this app is amazing, delicious recipes that help give you VARIETY! Highly recommend👍🏻
Nice menus but NO PLANNING or EDITING 3/5
So what is a menu planner without the ability to plan when you are eating them?! Why is there no weekly or daily calendar to decide when you are having each meal? That’s what a mom needs! Drag and drop to day and mealtime? Feeling totally disorganized. Ok, here’s the next problem. You have to plan your meals all in one setting, because there is no way to add, delete or edit your meal plan in any way. Try to do so by pressing the nondescript “New” button and your whole plan disappears. What? So dysfunctional.
3 stars deserved though, because the meals look nice, and the first one we tried making was truly delicious. Please update with PLANNING and EDIT functions. These are necessities.
Not ideal for vegetarians or vegans 3/5
This app was absolutely fantastic for a month, but then I ran out of vegetarian recipes that looked appetizing....I also seriously got sick of eggs, like 80% of the recipes has eggs in them. If they just had a higher quantity of vegetarian recipes and came up with new ones more often, it would be almost perfect. The automatically generated shopping list is fantastic, as well as the calorie counts and instructions were great for batch cooking.
Great for starters 3/5
By I Am Groor
This app is for for those starting out with meal planning. The largest negative is that you can't remove meals from meal plans simply because you want to add another meal. I think the reason the company gives, "food waste" is ridiculous especially if I haven't purchased anything yet and remove it prior to my grocery trip.
Trouble with toggling 5/5
I love this app. I have shared it with 5 or 6 friends so far. When I go to the grocer list to add an item I have to close the app to go back to the main page
No need for Blue Apron or others like it with this app 5/5
Thanks for a great app! I love it and use it every week to save time and money planning yummy, healthy meals for my family.
Honestly, I don't understand the appeal of services like Blue Apron or Sun Basket when you have an app like this.
1. Integrate Instacart so that I can build my meal plan and then the groceries delivered to my door.
2. I would love to see you add Keto as a diet preference.
The best ever!!! 5/5
Love this app, easy to use and food is delicious!
Alright y’all. This app is to thank for keeping me on track with the paleo diet... for real. I was getting bored with my regular ensemble of chicken and vegetables. So much so that I found myself consistently dreaming about pizza. I’m lactose intolerant. Then a friend told me about this app and my life is better for it. I’ve told everyone I know about it and they feel the same. Even my grandma has been using it consistently. My target runs take half the time and half the money because I am organized.
Do yourself a favor and download it.
Perfect app for diet restrictions 5/5
I can't say enough about this app. The recipes are easy to follow and execute and taste fantastic! I have diet restrictions for which this app totally accommodates. It also allows you to exclude recipes with things you don't like. I have tried approximately 13 recipes and love, love, love every one. This app is also wonderful for those who do not consider themselves good cooks...like me. With these recipes I feel like an accomplished chef. Bon appetit!
Love this app! 5/5
By Kristin iPhone 8
This app has made cooking enjoyable and grocery shopping so easy! It has expanded my ability on cooking and opened my tastebuds to new exciting flavors. Love it!
Satisfied me 5/5
By I Surrender
Recipes were great and a lot of fun to prepare, although I don't like to cook. They came out great as well.
Awesome app. Exactly what I needed. 5/5
It takes me forever to decide what to cook, then compiling the grocery list, then the shopping, then the cooking. It made me get frozen dinners for the longest time. Enter Mealime and it not only saves a ton of time but I'm really enjoying he unique recipes and food combinations. There have been several dishes I've made using an ingredient I had never tried before. I feel like an advertisement when I talk about this app to people but it really is awesome!
This app is AMAZING 5/5
Let me first start by saying, I like to cook. I really enjoy it. BUT, I am a very busy mom with a picky toddler and the struggle of being adventurous with my cooking has become difficult. This app makes cooking GOOD food, simple. I love that it takes all the guesswork and busywork out of cooking and grocery shopping. It tells you exactly what you need, so we end up not wasting groceries from produce going bad before we use it. Not to mention, you can personalize things for your family’s needs. We are on a weight loss journey, so we are using the paleo option. The recipes are delicious. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this app and my family has been much happier at mealtime!
Use it and love it! 5/5
I love this app and use it every week! Makes life and meal time simple, easy, and delicious!
Please Help 2/5
I really like this app! However, I paid for a subscription and the app isn't allowing me to utilize what I paid for. I tried emailing but there is no way of contacting Mealime. Please help correct this issue. Thanks!
Loving It! 5/5
So so helpful! I think it would be even better if the app had breakfast and lunch options as well as an iPad format.
Needs other meal options 3/5
I was trying this app and found that you can only plan for dinner.
Great App 4/5
I love the recipe ideas and the ease of making the list. I wish I could sync it with my Wegmans shopping list app, and I wish you could have an option for budget friendly, or list what you have in your cupboards first. Something to make it not just recipe ideas, but planning in a thoughtful way--ie if I select a chicken recipe, maybe populate more recipes with chicken so I can buy in bulk?
Love it 5/5
I like that I can set it to only include vegetarian meals, and most of those are really really good. I think they underestimate how long several of the recipes actually take the average cook (cutting two pints of grape tomatoes into quarters really slows down a 30 minute recipe, for example). But most of the things are flavorful and creative, the grocery list feature is very handy, and if you tap an ingredient, there are often substitutions suggested. I'm not in a position to pay for the full version at this time, but there are still a ton of recipes I can access with the free version. This is the only app I've ever truly been tempted to pay for the full version; the difference between is being able to access the nutritional info and double (ish) the recipes available.
