No recipe pages actually load, rendering the app useless 1/5
The app works fine until you try to open up an actual recipe. Then, it just says “loading” for eternity. My app and software are both up to date, so my phone isn’t the issue. This is disappointing because I love my Instant Pot. But the app is garbage and is just a waste of storage space on your phone.
Great app but has a problem 3/5
Love the app but I have an issue with the keyboard. It blocks the screen when you try to leave a comment about a recipe. I could not see what I was typing.
THE WORST - Use the Android version. 1/5
By Go Google 759
While I am actually logged in with my current password and can ACTUALLY see the email associated with my IP account, this app refuses to allow me to log in or to reset my password. Won’t recognize my CORRECT email. I really hate that Apple makes me log in to save a review, but am willing to jump over that hoop for this one.
Did they remove “settings” on this app? 1/5
As of today April 1st.... there is no settings so I can pair with phone. What’s the point of Bluetooth if I can actually use my phone to use it?? Maybe instant pot is April fooling their customers in time to 1st use their pot in Easter Sunday! Not a happy customer
Who on Earth thought it a good idea to have to push several buttons to see the ingredients and instructions. Absolutely ridiculous. A cumbersome, clumsy and sums design. Will return if it’s ever fixed.
Not enough recipes 1/5
Why aren’t there more recipes? Each category had only a few recipes. And most are foreign or spicy. In the category for meats the titles of the recipes only went through “I”. I think this app is useless.
Ingredients & Instructions not on same page 2/5
By Hello yourself
Have to click on ingredients then different place for instructions. Don’t like this. Recipe should be all on the same page. Please correct so we have have all together. Why hasn’t this been corrected?
Also why can’t we have the option to print the recipe. You all need make it a lot more user friendly.
Freezes and sign in required 1/5
Trying to choose a category and they will not open after repeated taps. A lot of the recipe pictures I saw are on Pinterest already. Many recipes are mislabeled into the wrong category.
Just bad 1/5
Slow response or none at all, unable to view recipes or just crashes
Sadly, appeared to have a large variety of recipes that may have been super tasty but none of them would open so I could read them much less cook them.
Can’t delete grocery list 3/5
Items that I have added to grocery list keep coming back after I’ve deleted them. Also can’t add new items.
Can’t even open it. Crashes. So sad.
Fixed the very next day. Love my IP & love this app. A winning combination.
Won’t open 2/5
I have this app on my phone and it works great. It won’t even open on my iPad. This is frustrating.
12/13/17 Update: the app now works on my iPad nicely but here is my biggest issue with both versions at this point: creating a login that continues to give me error messages after I’ve had to change the password so I get nowhere trying to save a recipe
1/29/18 Update: Still cannot login and receiving error message
New release 1.5.11 2/5
Several recipes I opened froze, forcing a restart.
Not for the Mini Duo unfortunately 2/5
Reasonable App I suppose.
I have the Mini Duo and, unfortunately, the ingredient quantities are not right for 2 portion cooking.
Also, most of the recipes I reviewed had far too many ingredients for when I am saving time.
Also, under help, only the links to "About" seem to work.
Will of load recipe 1/5
By Tn trainman
I selected a recipe, but app will not load the ingredients and directions. A list of recipe names is totally useless!
Problem with this app 1/5
Downloaded app with no problem...was able to view the video no problem...could not continue or view recipes. I am using an Ipad. Does this app not work on iPads?
No Print Function? 1/5
As mentioned by more than a few, the lack of a print function is beyond mind boggling. I don’t want to hold my iPhone while cooking.
Instant Pot 5 stars, whomever wrote and approved this app - a pink slip.
iPhone X 4/5
The actual application is fine, got lots of pictures and menus, but just got iPhone X and keep crashing please make new update!
Needs changes 4/5
By Mrs. Lee
Would like an area to write my own notes after making a recipe, possibly even an option to print a recipe.
Great concept but 2/5
So I was super excited to see this app. I love the way it is laid out but seems as though anytime I “add” items to my grocery list nothing appears in the actual list. I really hope the kinks get worked out and the developers get it straightened out. If the grocery list would actually work I would have rated a 5.
Great pot, lousy app 1/5
It's as though the UX/UI people have never actually cooked before. Ingredients is on one tab, instructions on a different tab but you'll have to pop back and forth to the Ingredients tab to see what to do with the ingredients (chop, reserve, etc.). It's a deal breaker for me.
Would be great to if you could export the shopping list too.
Not functioning 1/5
Opened once and seamed to be useful but now trying it again and doesn’t load. Not a useful review, wish I had the opportunity to be able to actually use it to review it adequately.
Utterly useless 1/5
Recipes won't open. Disappointed with whomever is a part of this app. Do your homework and due diligence before putting an app out here. Cripes...
By NoDramma Mamma030300
Most of this app does not work.
Can’t even open 1/5
Wouldn’t even give it 1 star. The app crashes every time I try to open it. Waste of time.
Cannot Open App- Crashes! 1/5
Hopefully developers will fix this but currently app is not functional on iPhone 8 Plus with current iOS. Crashes every time when attempting to open. 😠
Instant Pot App 5/5
I just got this App today received my Instant Pot as a Christmas present. I love the App. They must have fixed the problems people were having with the App, because I had no problems whatsoever with the App on my IPad Air.
Thank you for a great App with great Recipes and Instructions.
Doesn’t work 1/5
I cannot get anything in the app to load. I tried deleting and reinstalling and that did not help the problem. I’m excited about my new instant pot, but this is clearly not the place to get recipes.
I can't open certain recipes and app freezes
Doesn’t work 1/5
Just downloaded the app and it show no recipes or anything else....will give it a few days
Love it! 5/5
By AK Amber
I can completely respect other’s frustrations with apps as everyone has different expectations. For me, I found the app to be very user friendly. Clicking between screens was a simple as a single tap on the icon between ingredients and instructions. As far as the printing issue, a very simple press in the sharing icon allows you to email it to yourself for quick and easy printing. I’m a beginner at using the Instant Pot, but found myself getting more and excited (and hungry) with each new recipe I found in this app. Give it a try!
The box of the cooker boasts that it’s a yogurt maker, yet the app contains zero yogurt recipes.
What app? 1/5
Just downloaded the app and deleted it several times all I get is a blank white screen. Not sure what is happening!
Just loaded this app on my IPad after receiving my Instant Pot. None of the recipes will load!
Learn how to code before releasing this piece of crap!!!
Useless App 1/5
Try searching for Pot Roast and select Dinner and Easy and press the Funnel. Mussels? The Instant Pot May be useful, but this app is not.
Crashes on startup 1/5
...every time on iPhone X with iOS 11.2.1.
Needs a little work 4/5
I like the idea of this app a lot. Most of it is great but there are still a few things that could be improved. Some of the recipes are for larger pots than my 6qt. and I didn’t realize that until the ingredients were added :/ But it does have some great recipes!
Won’t load 1/5
Keeps crashing, needs to be updated
App is not working on my older IPad which is too bad. Recipes won't load after tapping link. I'm not going to use my phone to try and read recipes. Hope this is fixed soon. Otherwise will uninstall.
Please update 2/5
Great app but unfortunately I can no longer use it. It is apparently incompatible with the new iPhone Xs. I’ve tried on two different phones. Please update it!
Looks Promising, sadly it needs a lot of work. 2/5
This app appears to be very usedfull, however after using it to make a recipe I thinks it needs a lot of work. The 3 main things that are in the way of making this a functioning app are: #1-the list of ingredients and amounts used are on one page, you must touch the screen to go to the cooking instructions and then it is back & forth, touching the screen each time, making a mess out of your screen. Very user unfriendly IMHO.
#2- No ability to print the recipe out, why? This is a deal breaker for me. (I prefer not to have my iPad in the middle of my cooking area).
#3- No ability to make notes on the recipe as to any changes made to the recipe or to note how well it worked out. Again, why?
There are a few more things about this app that make difficult in my opinion but these 3 are the most problematic. At first glance I was impressed until I actually tried to use it. I won’t delete it yet, hopefully the team will get this app up to speed to make me want to try it out again.
Not work for IPhone X 2/5
The latest version always crashes when trying to open it in iPhone X, and the developer team should look into the issue.
???? RECIPES ???? 1/5
Would be good...IF...it worked! Can't try recipes that won't even open. Badly in need of bug fixes.
Useless recipes 1/5
By Isaac boo
This is the most useless app I have ever seen. Only thing it does is to show the name of the food and has no real directions. Junk!!!
Still will not open on iPhone 8 1/5
Can’t even get to an opening screen, just flashes the opening screen and the I’m dumped into my home screen set of apps/front page on iPhone.
iPhone, but not iPad 2/5
By Rivergoat of Borg
Works OK on my iPhone 6 with iOS 11, but while it loads and tries to open on my older iPad 3, recipes themselves will not open. Kind of a worthless app for iPad. Was hoping to use iPad as its screen is larger, but apparently not until a patch is developed.
Crashes on iPhone X 1/5
Crashes on iPhone X. Running iOS 11.1.2
When I tapped on this app what I got with a completely blank screen. Absolutely nothing.
Printing Needed 1/5
The recipes look good, but I don’t want my iPad in the kitchen. Add printing and it gets 5 stars.
