Please add printing. I used to be able to and now can’t. Very frustrating
Incredibly usefull 5/5
Use it almost everyday and wonder how I managed without it.
As a NYT subscriber it is free. I don’t know what the cost is if you don’t subscribe but in my view it’s a life changing app and saves me a ton of time.
Best Cooking App/Newsletter 5/5
They also have a great local news section.
Costs too much 1/5
By James vanderbeezy
Free version was decent. Paywall seems reasonable but only like a buck a month. Cook books are cheap, internet recipes abound for free. Im deleting the app but used to use it a lot.
I love this app! 5/5
By Mij Gnidlaps
Let’s be clear, I’m an old guy, in Seattle, who likes to cook. It pleases my wife, which in turn makes me a happy guy. I dive down the rabbit hole of whatever Sam Sifton has emailed me on a daily basis. More importantly for me is just a consistent library of well thought out recipes to turn to when the “ohhhh, I haven’t made that!” impulse hits me.
If I have one complaint, it’s that the daily email doesn’t link right to the app. On the other hand it might be that I’m an old guy.
Either way, great app, I love the ability to create folders, and save what catches my eye.
Fix the notes 2/5
When I try adding notes, no note will show up. Love this app when that feature worked.
Previous Recipes of the Day 4/5
Since last update you can’t swipe through the previous days’ Recipe of the Day. Can this function be re-installed?
My favorite app 4/5
Love the recipes. Fellow cooks make great suggestions. I need a way to leave notes to myself about the adjustments I made and want to remember next time.
Love it but 4/5
By Grey mom
The gingerbread cheese cake recipe has an error message and is blank.
I can’t add personal notes any more.
Features Do Not Work 2/5
By B. Harper
I am a long-time subscriber to the Times and used to love this cooking app. But for no apparent reason, it has begun refusing to accept my private notes. It is going to force me to go back to index cards, which in large part defeats the value of the app. Extremely frustrating.
Good recipes, but what about printing them? 2/5
I can’t fault the layout and presentation of these recipes, but why does the app have a non-functioning printer icon? And why, if I send the URL to Safari via email, can I not print from there? Believe it or not, I still use paper! This way, when my wine spills on the recipe I don’t have to replace my IPad.
Great App 5/5
I love having a collection of excellent recipes at my fingertips.
What Have They Dobe?! 1/5
This used to be a great site. They recently changed it. You can’t see past days’ daily recipes, and the app is woefully unresponsive anymore. Feh!!!
Won’t pay! 1/5
By Dances with Trout
I had this app free & found & used many great recipes. Had them all organized-loved it. THEN, one day you had to “subscribe” at about $5 a month or $40/year to be able to access your recipes. It was like some of my favorite recipes were being held for ransom! How very New York of them.
Good app, but forcing you to their product 2/5
I've used this app from its beginning. It’s well designed, content rich, and easy to use. Sadly, NYT has significantly tightened it’s user flexibility. Now, you must be a subscriber to NYT or pay a hefty monthly fee. Ok, I get that (and I’m a NYT subscriber already, so “free” for me). Lately though, they’ve made it much more difficult for me to share their recipes with other recipe apps (I use Paprika). If I google one of their recipes, and select it, now Safari automatically bounces me into the app, where Paprika is not “one of the apps they partner with” ... now, I have to have 2 recipe databases. NYT will tell you that you can save other recipes on their database, but they are surprisingly mum about how to port over the 1000 or so recipes I already have in paprika. Grrr
New home page 1/5
The new home page is terrible. Can not navigate back to previous pages and recipes of the featured foods are not easily accessible. Please go back to the previous format. It was much more eye friendly and user friendly
Ruined a good app with update 2/5
By Aggies in SEC
Ever since this app was published you could review multiple recipes of the day from the previous several days. Suddenly last week with an update, it’s no more only one new or recent recipe at a time. I don’t wise you’re stuck with the NYT‘s collections. I hate it now. Or use it only about 1/4 as often as I did before.
Hate the New User Interface Changes 2/5
Look, I love this app and it's become indispensable to me and meal planning for the family, I have also enjoyed being able to just look at interesting recipes presented in the Daily Recipes. But the new version removes that, now there's a single daily recipe, and no way to browse the old ones. Also, a previous update removed the Cooked tab, which was also very useful. So now, even though something is marked as Cooked, there's no way to sort and show only cooked recipes. I'm sure these changes make sense to someone, but I see no benefit.
A MUST-HAVE APP!! 5/5
Love this app so much that I use it with when I go shopping for meals! User- friendly and especially like the "saved" recipes section.
New update has problems to work out 3/5
New update does not allow me to scroll thru past few days of featured recipes. I appreciated this feature in older versions since I don't have time to Check the app every day.
Content is great. But the app is an epic fail at this point because there’s NO WAY TO PRINT FROM THE APP.
Really? I mean, really? Just what are the developers thinking?
Too Bad! 3/5
By Scout brat
The app is great, the recipes are great but in this world of free flowing info, you want me to pay for recipes? I don’t think so. Maybe when/if I no longer need to budget or if I decide to stop paying attention to how I spend my money. So I’ve deleted it.
The folder UX needs work 3/5
Unintuitive and tedious!
Extremely disappointed 1/5
By Prof vg
I find it disappointing and annoying that you cannot print these recipes out!! I don’t want to always have my phone or iPad open when I cook. Call me “old fashioned”, but a hard copy in a plastic sleeve in my recipe binder is preferred!!
Too expensive 1/5
Was hoping to at least see a sample of recipes before being asked to pay. I know that there are some good things in the archives of NYT cooking, but not enough to convince me to pay $50 a year.
Way overpriced 1/5
They want $4 a month for recipes? Seriously? You can get recipes for free anywhere you like now. Was a pretty cool interface while they allowed me to use it free then pulled the bait and switch and locked me out.
Plenty of other places to go for recipes than here.
Not free 1/5
Asks for signup and payment before you even see what it is.
Free to download, pay to use 1/5
Installed it for about 5 minutes before realizing they wanted a subscription. There are free alternatives that do just as well. DELETE!
Requires a subscription 2/5
Could be great, could be terrible. I have no idea
Fake Reviews 1/5
Can’t use app on phone ...no recipes show up
I longer able to access Yesterday’s recipes 2/5
This new update gets rid of the ability on my iOS iPad and iPhone to swipe left and see Yesterday’s recipe and a few previous recipes. If I miss a day of looking at recipes I no longer can see the previous. This is an awful “fix.”
I’ve been using the recipes since Cooking first began. My enthusiasm has waned with this update.
Not loving the new update... 2/5
I dislike that I can no longer scroll to view the past 7 recipe of the days, please bring this feature back. Additionally, the bank of new recipes are no longer featured at the bottom of the landing page. Finally, I find that the search algorithm doesn’t consistently provide results unless your search terms are in the recipe name.
Ux revision is a fail 2/5
I’ll be using this much less. The new UI is opaque and annoying. I want to be able to scroll through recent recipes of the day.
Using much less and may delete. We will see.
Almost impossible to print from app. 3/5
I’ve tested this with other stuff and it seems to be only this app that doesn’t print. PLEASE FIX
Can’t sign in. This is awful. 1/5
What is wrong with a stupid receipt app that won’t allow you to sign in.
Beautiful recipe database 5/5
The recipes are great but the app itself is wonderful as well. Excellent layout, easy to read and follow, very well organized, and visually appealing.
The NYT should state up front that a monthly subscription cost is needed to use this App. I will access recipes through my online subscription. I don’t see the need to pay an additional fee. The App is now deleted.
The best cooking app! 5/5
I love this app! I use it multiple times a week. So many great recipes and lots of comments from users to help tweak recipes when necessary. I also find that the star ratings for the recipes are generally accurate.
Money Grab 1/5
Had this app for years, now they want me to shell out $5 to view my saved recipes.
Love it! 4/5
This app is truly awesome. Not only are the recipes plentiful, easy to follow and awesome, they have a great UX. The comments help me tune up a recipe. The fifth star will come if they allow me to aggregate other recipes on a section of the recipes I save from NYT.
By Atlanta sista
Always find recipes, in a variety of cuisine choices, that are flavorful and tasty. User comments are helpful.
Enjoy the convenience of texting grocery list and also having access to the recipe, be it at either the market or my kitchen.
Never get bored!
Used to be good, now just a moneymaker ... 2/5
My old review was how much I loved this app. But the NYT seems to want us to pay for every different feature we use. So I have a digital newspaper subscription, a crossword subscription, and now they want money each month to subscribe to this app. I’ve just lost access to several years’ worth of recipes I saved on this app because I won’t pay a third monthly fee. It felt like a hostage situation, when they told me I no longer get to see my beloved recipes. I’m already paying them for two separate monthly digital subscriptions. This just hurts. It was a good app. Was.
Excellent... except 4/5
I love this app, and use it constantly. My one regret is that the search function only brings up NYTimes recipes from my saved recipes. If I want to find recipes saved from other sites, I have no choice but to scroll. As a serious recipe collector, this is an annoying inconvenience and I hope the NYTimes figures out a way around it.
Really solid 5/5
Use it all the time. Viva Melissa Clark!
Latest update 5/5
Really don’t like the new format. Liked being able to flip through 5 most recent recipes. Hope you bring that back.
Better than cookbooks 5/5
By Sunil and Rama
Though I love cookbooks and have been collecting them since college in the early 1990s, the NYTimes cooking app has been my go to app for everyday cooking. We cook most of our meals for our family and this has transformed our cooking and brought simplicity and diversity to our meals.
Great App 5/5
The app is great, well designed, clean appearance, and easy to use.
Great recipes, easy to use 5/5
One of my favorite recipe apps, not only for the quality of the recipes but also for high functionality—great search & save functions, reader rankings & reviews I can count on.
Missing Obvious Features and Too Many Bugs 1/5
Most recent bugs? List of recently viewed recipes is no longer being updated. The issue is like the contacts app on your phone, most people just go to the recently called list. If this doesn’t work the Cooking app degenerates into a cook book.
Have we lost the ability to organize recipes with the iPad version?
What I would like to see?
1) Android app in addition to the iOS app
2) Make a calendar entry for a recipe
Wonderful recipes and easy to use app 5/5
We love this app. It has revolutionized cooking in our family: my husband now does it ton of cooking because he can easily find recipes with keyword searches based on ingredients or ideas. The recipes are unfailingly excellent. I love being able to save the recipes I like and organize them in folders.
