No recipes without watching videos 1/5
Watch videos to get recipes? No thanks, I’ll just google the recipes I want instead. I’m sure your videos are great and I’d love to watch them on my own time when I feel like it. I don’t want to be required to watch a video to get access to a recipe.
By Chef Elan
Best cooking app ever, I look like a chef every time I use a recipe from Genius kitchen
I don’t want or have time to watch a show to get a recipe. It should be picture, recipe, video...
Not very useful. 1/5
The recipes are more important to me than the shows and the
Just the recipes, just the recipes 1/5
If I want to watch a video I will look it up. I have to look up my recipes through the browser. I need the recipe almost everyday I never need a video to show me how to chop vegetables.
What happened app worked fine before! 2/5

Press recipes on app and a video on Dan’s Skillet Chicken recipe comes up and I can not access my saved recipes.. I have to go to website to access my saved recipes. Help me Obi Wan!
None of the links work 1/5
When I search a recipe and open the page clicking on more to see what the author said or see all reviews takes you to the bottom of the page which leads to nothing. Tweaks, questions, etc are not clickable.
Awesome videos! 5/5
I love the videos and the recipes! They are simple and easy to follow. They can also be funny, which makes it fun to watch and learn. I love it!!!
By Missouri Woman
Outstanding recipes, and videos! Love the inspirational fresh ideas. Keep up the good work!
Waste of time 1/5
Horrible! Why would anybody keep that app! You have to watch a show to get to the recipe? Just because you cook in front of a camera doesn’t mean I have to watch you.
Give me access to recipes so I can get inspired and not have to watch those egomaniacs.
I downloaded this app through Instagram thinking that it was a place to collect and watch recipes. But to save and see most recipes it just forces you to view it through the website anyway.
90 percent of the content is pictures that open the external link, or cooking shows.
There’s no point in the app if it’s going to force me out of it.
So many great recipes 5/5
Just started cooking in our new home last week . Love the site. Many easy to do recipes. Yummy
Slow down video speed 5/5
Can you slow the rate of the videos? The English accent s and the speed makes it difficult to understand.
This app is awesome 5/5
By The mr champ
This app is awesome i made Mac& cheese in 30 on this app and . I can’t wait to see what other recipes i can make
6 chocolate desserts 3/5
You say you’ll provide recipes. Where are they?
Don’t bother 1/5
By 29 pointer
Until they make it so you can find all your saved recipes and the folders you saved them in, this app is completely useless
Not sure what all the low ratings are all about 5/5
By I don't pay for apps
This app is pretty simple and straight forward. I don’t find myself watching the videos because there’s an option to X out of the video once it begins, not sure a lot of people who download this app realize develops have to have some sort of company advertise on their app in order for the app developer to keep their app up and running. Otherwise it wouldn’t be free? Uhh🙄
Nothing but black for video playback. 2/5
Found a recipe online that links to this app when I chose to save the recipe. Downloaded app. Cool list of shows, but where did my recipe go?
Click on a video and it acts like it is going to play but just shows black video frame and player controls, but no vid.
Disappointed and unsure what to do. Meh.
Why?! Just awful. Not for today’s busy families. 1/5
Liked the old app. Grocery list. My personal recipes. Easy to look up recipes.
Now all of that is gone and I DON’T HAVE TIME to watch shows. Most busy families don’t have time to watch shows. THAT was the beauty of the old app.
BTW, it’s obvious that most of the 4 and 5 stars listed are fake. Read the reviews. Many people caught on to that quickly.
***Anyone have any suggestions for a new app similar to the old Food app????? I’m ditching this app pronto!
All I want is to view recipes 1/5
App is a complete waste of time. All I want is to search and view recipes. I have neither the desire nor the time to watch a cooking show. JUST LET ME VIEW THE RECIPE!!
Bring back Food app 1/5
Loved the old app. I could find new ideas, get great ideas from people that had made the recipes before, create shopping lists, everything I needed for menu planning and getting meals on the table.
This app is not what I want or need. I love the option to watch new cooking techniques, but for recipes, I prefer the functional app this dysfunctional one replaces.
Would be Genius, but... 1/5
Show recipes in written form and the genius will deserve its title.
This app is inconvenient at best for recipe use.
Jamie’s Super foods 3/5
Great show. Can’t find the recipes that I want
Don’t work can’t find any recipes on this thing whatsoever
Me gustaba más la otra app 2/5
Aquí no encuentro mis recetas guardadas de la app anterior, veo los videos y luego no aparecen en la lista de los videos que he visto, entonces no encuentro las recetas que me han gustado y tampoco las puedo guardar, es confuso. La tengo y de vez en cuando me sirve para inspirarme, pero no es mi favorita, le falta mucho por mejorar porque no es amigable, además, muchas veces no tengo tiempo para ver videos, así que es más fácil seguir instrucciones escritas y si olvido algún paso, lo puedo encontrar rápidamente, con los videos tengo que regresar al video, atrasar, adelantar hasta encontrar lo que olvidé....
Why take years of recipes away and give me videos and no recipe.... makes no sense at all.
Thanks but No 1/5
I was told to use this app be use the food app I used was going away. First off, I did not ask for cooking shows because I can get that from all shows that are on my television, I was just looking the recipes that I wanted to reference and or use. This is such a failure. After reading the reviews and there are so many that do not like this app but I decided to try anyway, big mistake.
I get what you are trying to do but no thank you. Just give me back the app I was using before. Why mess up something that was working? Not everything is meant to be about watching people cook and talk about their issues, that is what those horrible talks shows and reality snows are for. There isn't a star that I could possibly want to give so I chose the 1 star just to be generous.
You ruined the app! 1/5
I don’t want to watch a video, I want to read the recipe. Time to say Buh-Bye to this app.
They continue to send loads of e-mails even after being asked to stop.
Will este for the update 2/5
Exactly what juicejunkie said. I will stay tuned for the update because without being able to access previously saved recipes it’s just entertainment. Thanks for listening to our concerns.
Video cooking 2/5
I agree I don’t have time or interest in videos. Just show the recipe. Videos are good for tricky or unusual techniques but just waste time for ordinary recipes
Disappointed Says It Nicely 1/5
By Mr. G2
Who’s driving this ignorance? Developers or their managers? Your USERS like something, why the hell would you change it?! We love the ability to search for recipes, and you want us to watch videos. I don’t think so! I’m deleting stupid kitchen! I frigin guarantee you, there’s a hidden motive to this foolishness. With the videos, advertising videos will follow! I ain’t buying it!!
Can’t find written recipes 1/5
Useless app can’t find written recipes
Won’t let you look up anything😡
Unusual recipes 5/5
Good recipes, easy & most of them unique.
Cool app 5/5
The recipes are varied and straight forward and the various shows are great. I love the way it connects from what I watched on Apple TV and sends the recipes to my iPhone app. Genius!
Food Network how Do i get my recipes 2/5
Trying to sync my recipes is non eventful. Is adding recipes from Apple TV the only way to do this? I want the ability to add from other sites as well.
Trying to adjust 2/5
I have to get use to everything being a video before I can get to the recipe.
I don’t have time for this! 3/5
Unlike The previous reviewer, I do not watch videos of Recipes.
My preference is to search for the recipe, find it and then print it . As a “from scratch cook” I prefer to putting my time into cooking and baking yummy food. I have always used the Food Network app to find scrumptious recipes worth spending the time to cook.
Please move forward in having the app updated. That would create a stellar app that would please all of us cooks choice to view the printed recipe and save it . That would please all of the cooks out there! Thank you !
What a pile of garbage 1/5
Your app is terrible and your website so bad other apps can’t recognize the recipes as that, it’s TOTALLY garbage. Good luck to you, I’ll never download another app by this developer.
Also I canned response (that you clearly posted on all the 1 star and 2 star reviews you received) over two months later, is at best patronizing and on the face of it a lame attempt to convince new people looking at the app your fixing things. Your not and you didn’t. Maybe if your response actually addressed the issues or even said “Sorry just took things in a different direction,” it wouldn’t be so insulting.
Bring back Food.com 1/5
Please add non video recipes
Love it 5/5
What turn USED to be
While I get what the Genius Kitchen app is trying to do by providing cooking tv shows and videos that you have seen or are interested in, but it kind of feels like the recipe factor comes second to the video content. I do like watching cooking and food videos/shows but I think it’s a little inconvenient to have to watch a show to get the recipe (which is basically a link to the recipe online) when I can go online and get without watching. Most importantly, you CAN’T sync or view the recipes you have saved online, only the recipes from the videos you have watched. This more like a video app. I was hoping to be able to conveniently view and manage all my recipes on the app, but sadly that’s not the case.
This isn't a cooking app 1/5
This is a cooking show app. I cannot find any recipes, only videos from the show. Completely useless for me.
Waste of time 1/5
This app is a waste of time. When I search for a recipe, how about giving me the actual recipe, instead of a video with a long commercial at the beginning. Many videos don’t even give ingredient measurements. Oh, and my prior recipes didn’t sync either.
All 5 star 1/5
You are genius. This is a fantastic app. Just keep up the excellent job.
Best pop culture food app 5/5
By That’s why I hang my hat in TN
Love the shows, personalities and recipes!
Don’t be fooled by fake 4 stars-it’s not 1/5
Never mind how horrible the app is, the fact that you falsely advertise that this app is 4 out of 5 stars is reprehensible. Find some good programmers, pay attention to your consumer base and fix it!!!
Pretty good 3/5
By dee dee 86
Didn’t see a great variety of recipes. Its average.
Wasn't that bad 3/5
It was ok
