NYT Cooking app reviews

  • Search function needs to be improved! 3/5

    By DrKäll
    The search function never works. It seems to require the full name of a recipe. Not helpful.
  • Invaluable for meal planning 5/5

    By Ethicalskincare
    I find I’m using this app almost daily. I tend to sit down with it and my morning cup of coffee to plan out the week’s meals. A wealth of excellent recipes and tips from other subscribers. So glad I finally treated myself to a subscription!
  • My go to for recipe source 5/5

    By 26254
    NYT recipes never seem to disappoint. If you subscribe, take advantage of “notes” written and submitted re: recipe user efforts. Some amuse. Some confound. Some helpful. Some absurd. Good reads nonetheless and help to solidify my attempts. After several years, I have found some recipes that are now keepers such as Mushroom Bread Pudding made with brioche bread by Susan Spungen.
  • What am I missing? 2/5

    By a5038h
    This app has AMAZING reviews, but the majority of the recipes within the app don’t have great reviews… I love New York Times but I don’t get the appeal here. I’d rather just search on Google for better recipes than use this app, and I have to pay for it. Why does everyone like it so much? I’m also vegetarian and have only ever saved vegetarian recipes, but it continues to “suggest” only meat dishes to me. Wish you could change your preferences. If I’m going to pay for it, I’d also like more features like saving money on groceries by finding recipes that would use unused ingredients from other recipes, or suggesting a week of meals you could get out of one inexpensive grocery list that reduces leftover ingredients/waste.
  • Great recipes but… 1/5

    By bilancio
    Great recipes but there is no option to cancel my subscription in the app…
  • The best recipes 5/5

    By Hooked19
    Absolutely my first go-to for recipes. Totally hooked! Love all the good cooks at NYT kitchen.
  • More guidance 4/5

    By Macs87
    Love this app, but would love an addition on it around what cooking utensils and kitchen equipment is needed for recipes!
  • Love the NYT and this App 5/5

    By kennyb3201
    Though I fear the Times is becoming less centered it still is my most trusted of sources. And this app from the NYT is awesome for ideas and recipes to make meal time interesting.
  • So much to love 5/5

    By TuneMama
    From the ability to make my own subfiles, to linking other site’s recipes to my box, to the sheer volume of recipes that are available, NYTCooking is the gold standard in my book. Love it, love it, love it!
  • Why mess with stars? Layout change? 1/5

    By Nyrrr7b
    All recipes look like they have five stars because all the stars are filled but different shades. The new layout seems to have small font size on my iPad and it’s hard to read.
  • Excellent 5/5

    By dbrousjr
    I was this app constantly. Search function could improve. Otherwise, this is terrific
  • Change did away with best part! 1/5

    By angkdub
    I love love love your app and use it almost religiously to determine what to cook for dinner…unfortunately when I opened it today to do my usual search with my most in need of love produce, the “sort by” tab is gone! As someone who loves to cook, I don’t care how long something takes to make…but I do want to be able to sort to find the highest rated recipes as those tend to be the best ones. Please give this feature back!!! I searched for 3x as long and couldn’t find the best recipe for mushrooms and chicken thighs anymore. Please please please help!!!
  • I wish the app was more inclusive 4/5

    By Af_blckblln
    I love the nyt cooking app and use it almost everyday but I wish we could have measure displayed in grams too for people outside of the US (or from somewhere else who are not use to the US measurement units)
  • Ads in paid subscriptions now… 1/5

    By InMarlton NJ
    So we pay for the subscription and also forced to be slammed by ads in the app now? Greedy NYT… I will not be renewing my subscription and I hope others don’t either.
  • Horrible update 1/5

    By Bre Lolly
    The new interface is SO bad!! It feels more cluttered and it’s impossible to tell the ratings of the recipes with the stars shown in two similar shades of grey. Please can we go back to the normal red stars?
  • Amazing number of delicious recipes that stretch your cooking 5/5

    By Jerry O'Neill
    I am as amateur as it gets. However, using the app has introduced me to a wide variety of delicious recipes. Be sure to read the Notes to learn more about other cooks’ experiences before you start the recipe!
  • Hooked 5/5

    By over reaching
    Love this app worth the subscription cost.
  • 5 Stars- Fantastic Recipe 5/5

    By Klock4
    This is a super delicious recipe in general, but I have to give props. My 12 month old rarely finishes even half the meat on her plate, but she loved this recipe and finished all of it. She’s not a picky eater but it always feels good when she really enjoyed something.
  • User Friendly Organized 5/5

    By Deborah’s In the Kitchen
    I love to cook. When I feel like cooking I go to this app for easy to follow instructions.
  • Some recipes are poor. 2/5

    By MD CA
    I have tried a few of the recipes, each more than once, with mixed results. Some are spot on; others, not so much.
  • Pasta 5/5

    By ch Jin GC C hi
  • Love this app 5/5

    By dry laundry
    Not only do I love the recipes, but I love the app. It functions so well, and in a world where life can sometimes feel frustrating it gives me pleasure to use something that is so well thought out. I love how I can easily find something I recently searched for even if I didn’t save it. I love that I can read a little bit about a recipe or just hop straight to the steps (vs scroll endlessly for the ingredients.)
  • Great for students 5/5

    By That.one.gay.kid
    I have saved so many hours of cooking by learning how to prep food. This app has taught me how to use what is in the pantry and still have things taste good. Great for student and cooking on a budget.
  • Requires subscription to use 1/5

    By Joshwill1995
    No functionality unless you opt for the subscription.
  • Great content. Poor feature set 4/5

    By nlightened
    It would take a programmer 15min to add filters to the search that would let you filter by recipe author and number of stars. It would also be great if the recipes were tagged for various diets like keto. Please add more filters to the search!
  • Love this app and use it all the time 5/5

    By Jules0414
    Great recipes and user interface and love the community tips
  • Excellent explanations and great recipes 5/5

    By this show is amazing.
    I love this app. Easy to find recipes. Easy filing system when you save things. Great explanations and always tasty!
  • Never-fail recipes 5/5

    By TLJComm
    I’ve been cooking NYT Cooking recipes for three years and haven’t had a failure yet! Every dish turns out perfectly and delicious. Entrees, sides, desserts—all great!! I especially like the Indian dishes. Indian food always seemed too intimidating to me, but now I prepare it about once a week. Always amazing.
  • My go to resource 5/5

    By KarinBooklady
    I love the recipes and the creative suggestions in the notes. I no longer need to remember where I saw a recipe because they are all in one place, even those from other publications that are easy to save in my NYT recipe box. Thank you for a terrific and so easy to use resource.
  • Can’t save non-NYT recipes anymore 2/5

    By Include me out
    Can’t. Doesn’t work now.
  • Memories 5/5

    By Mermaid4Real
    Growing up, my Dad and his best friend, Leonard, would pick a recipe, a rather complex recipe from The New York Times (or so they made it seem) and create a phenomenal, life-changing over-the-top meal. Every month or so. I remember lobster races on the kitchen floor, listening to Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. Two generations hearing a Beatles Album for the first time…together! Followed by an equally impressive lobster dish that unfortunately the winner of the race befell the same fate as the losers. Whole fish wrapped in banana leaves, lemon meringue pie, stretching their cooking skills and our young American-born palettes. Fast forward a few decades and I’m cooking the NYTimes Sunday gravy recipe for my 60th. Surrounded by old friends and family, in an Air BnB in Leavenworth, WA in a “life after Covid” world. And once again it’s the NYTimes making memories and filling bellies. Tonight I just cooked pan fried gnocchi with Brussel sprouts and lemon zest. YUM!!! Tonight will be a forever memory. Thanks NYTimes Cooking❤️
  • Good Recipes that are Hard to Find 4/5

    By sleep story
    There are SO many good receipts on NYT Cooking, but the interface makes it difficult to discover them all. My humble requests to the developers: There’s lots of scrolling on the app and then if you select something and go back to the original list, it’ll revert back up to the top of the list, not 2/3rds of the way down back to where you were. Recipe previews or the ability to go back to where you were would be great! You can’t filter by start ratings, or much else. A stronger sort and filter would be helpful. A description of any special equipment you may need at the top of each recipe. Suggested pairings! There are a lot of standalone entree recipes, side dish recipes, and drink recipes. Would love to have a feature that suggests what might be good pairings for the items that you’re looking at. Bonus points for things that cook at similar temperatures, use similar ingredients, etc.
  • Recipes 5/5

    By alanico.t
    I followed the recipe exactly. It was delicious.
  • A true gem. 5/5

    By eekkhh
    I adore this subscription! It is absolutely inspiring, educational , and hopeful. Thank you!
  • Wow! 5/5

    By scottdoug959 in Seattle
    As near as my smartphone, I have instant access to the more than 15,000 recipes The New York Times has published over il’s distinguished history. I know I will find old favorites (chicken poached in milk) as well as interesting variations and new recipes.
  • Resource Intensive app 1/5

    By wtran98
    I have an iPhone 13 mini. The app is easy to use, great look. The worst thing about this app is after using it for a prolonged period, it slows down the phone and heats it up like crazy, causing the phone to throttle and slow down. This app is too resource intensive and not well optimized.
  • Changed dinner forever 5/5

    By opsmattersmost
    Right on in so many ways. The flexible format to match my interests makes content more meaningful. There are enough new ideas for me to consider and expand my knowledge. The stories and supporting writing is appreciated. Enough nudging of content to keep me excited and engaged in cooking. Plus the recipes that fit my family’s preferences have been absolutely delicious!
  • The cost is outrageous 2/5

    By KasiaRozo
    I used to use this app for free and cannot justify paying $50 a year to look up recipes other apps offer for free.
  • The most beautiful app out there 5/5

    By CMurphy-B
    It is complete pleasure to peruse the recipes and pictures all accompanied with wonderful writing. I find refuge and many ideas!
  • Always a favorite 5/5

    By _.Daniel._
    I use this app constantly. It’s so easy to navigate while looking for recipes and while cooking, and the sheer amount and quality of the content is amazing.
  • Top 3 5/5

    By Q mcdogsauce
    Along with Ina and Lydia, NYT Cooking rounds out my Top 3 go-to’s for easy, consistently delicious recipes. The “comments” prove to be very helpful as well.
  • The app is barely operational 1/5

    By Lumen2222
    Crashes. Freezes. Can’t select recipes from recipe box. For a paid service this is very poor execution. The recipes are great and the design is beautiful. But whoever the developer is, they are not living up to what the rest of the team is doing.
  • all I need 5/5

    By rizomoka
    I got rid of all my cookbooks and cooking subscriptions because this app has all I need. I can find what I want to cook quickly and easily while existing in a simple, minimalist environment. It is positively lovely to use.
  • Saving on multiple devices 5/5

    By EllaForever
    There isn’t anything I don’t love ( including oft-quoted comments) about the NYT Cooking Newsletter, EXCEPT that I cannot save recipes simultaneously on my iPhone and IPad. This leads to no small amount of consternation when it’s time to cook! Can this be fixed? Please?
  • Categories need improvement 4/5

    By iBesaZombie
    Looooooove this app but the categorization code needs so improvement. For example, it can be hard to search through salad options.
  • I still have my NYTIMES cookbooks but I am old and lazy! 5/5

    By LouDeutsch
    The electronic version is so convenient my paper cookbooks are mainly just taking up room.
  • Limited articles 1/5

    By Never mind they are all taken
    Shame on your service for wanting to charge me xtra to read more than ,what, more than one article? Bad business practice
  • Love! 5/5

    By Karinsart
    I love this app for storing all my favorite recipes, and future favorites. Reading the tips from fellow cooks is both helpful and inspiring.
  • My recipe file is filling up! 5/5

    By Our Captain
    There has never been a clunker in all the one’s I have tried, problem is there’s so many great looking one’s it is hard deciding what to make next.
