Search function has changed for the worse 2/5
By Richard Oppenheim
Prior to recent "improvements" one of the coolest things about this app, aside from the recipes themselves, was the capability to plug in multiple search criteria and come up with recipes incorporating those elements together. For example, if you entered chicken potatoes olives you'd wind up with, perhaps, 250 recipes for chicken with potatoes and olives.
Now, unfortunately, that same search will net you, say, 3,000 recipes, some of which use chicken, some of which use potatoes, some of which use olives, and some of which use combinations of two or three of them. A ROYAL MESS, verging on useless.
Inquiries to the folks curating the app have elicited only "sorry, no plans to address this problem" type responses. What a drag.
Love it 5/5
I absolutely love this app
Good, not great 3/5
What good is a treasure trove of information, if you can’t find what you want? The New York Times collection of recipes is stellar, but the search engine is pretentious and useless. If you saw a recipe for carrots in the last month and you search New York Times food, you’ll get thousands of recipes, but no way to find the ones that were published in the last 30 days. I cannot remember the last time I was able to find something using their search engine. You’re better off going to Google letting it find the recipe for you, and lead you to the page on the NYT site. This is pitiful. If enough of us point it out, perhaps they will fix it.
Don’t want to save it all. 2/5
Getting this app going has been frustrating. I saw the offer while reading a recipe today. After subscribing, I received messages about the account I did not understand. I like to collect recipes and learn about cooking. Having 100’s showered upon me and saved is not the way for me to learn. I had to search for the recipe to save it. In this new age we are being overwhelmed with offers every time we open an app. And this is a time for opening apps. Even given the “later option” does distracts from trying to get things done: the main point of these apps.
Thank you NYT Cooking 5/5
With the terrific recipes, food photography, and ease with use of your sight, cooking and meals are much more enjoyable.
Search Functionality Needs Improvement 3/5
The Search functionality needs improvement, and the recipes can be overly complicated involving expensive ingredients and impractical steps, but hey its the New York f—ing Times. Otherwise a great app!
This was the app my food was missing 5/5
I needed something to get me out of the COVID clutch of my own cooking that was starting to bore me. This is full of amazing recipes that help take it above and beyond everynight. I once again like my own food and I am living up to my boyfriends title as "The Best Cook in the World."
Worth the money 5/5
By Queen turkey
So happy to throw the big bucks for the year... I’ve used it at least once a week for inspiration.
love this app 5/5
I’ve tried other recipe apps, and didn’t stick with them. I just love the NY Times app. User friendly. I can share recipes with friends. Organize my recipes. I love the app.
Full of fantastic recipes that I use all the time
Love the recipes. 5/5
I find the most wonderful recipes here. With never a failure. And the app is easy to use to save the recipes I want to make it make again.
Always gets my mouth watering 5/5
By Candy 929
Look forward to those Sunday recipes and gives me hope for the next week to come.Nurturing ourselves!
Great resource but missing one thing 5/5
By Homebound in Utah
Lots of interesting, generally excellent recipes. One request: a filter for the ratings a recipe receives. In my experience, the top-rated (5-star) recipes are indeed wonderful; the 4-star recipes noticeably less so. The notes by recipe users are also very helpful. How nice it would be if the recipe authors or editors checked the notes every now and then to answer questions or otherwise respond.
Received this as a gift and will now be gifting it to others. Hopefully that says all it needs to.
By WV Nancy
NYT Cooking has been my go-to for ideas and recipes for almost two years. I love the search feature. A bonus is Sam Sifton’s weekly letter. Also love the feature “What to cook this week.” Every recipe tried has been delicious. What more is there to say?!
A great resource 5/5
I can always find something to cook for the family here, ranging from to complex, from decadent to healthy.
NYT COOKING ROCKS 5/5
Always my go to for inspiration in the kitchen. We’ve made hundreds of NYT recipes and have yet to be disappointed!
The best 5/5
By K to the D n P
My go to during the week for scrumptious new meals for my kids and me with pictures that tantalize and make all the hard decisions easy
A wish. 5/5
I love the NYT Cooking App, use it frequently and have urged friends and family to get the NYT Cooking App! The feedback has been very positive.
I wish the search function was made easier, allowing one to find a particular recipe when one doesn’t remember the exact name of the recipe.
Worth it 5/5
By !Go Hawks!
Recipes for almost anything, in fact, often 5 recipes for almost anything, and the best part is that the app stays open and up while the phone is on your counter. It doesn’t allow the phone to sleep — which is such a simple but practical feature.
Huge variety of recipes 5/5
The recipes have opened my eyes to a variety of spices and how they’re involved in making food delicious
I am a much better chef now that I use these recipes
Should be free today 4/5
TG rip off
‘N why tea coookin’ 1/5
Spelled the way it sounds
I love this app 5/5
I love The NY Times food section and having the recipes so accessible on the app is great. Also, love the food writers!
Worth every penny 5/5
Full of tips, tricks and recipes that are a hit every time. Follow directions of fellow foodies and you’ll be looked on by family and friends as a talent in the kitchen. I’ve only been steered wrong a couple of times, the rest has been restaurant quality.
Family Pleaser 5/5
I had all the ingredients so decided this afternoon to make this for dinner with a romaine salad on the side. It’s fine if the potatoes are still warm/hot—just peel off the skins and crumble into the sour cream mixture. My family—with some picky eaters—loved it.
NYTimes Cooking App 5/5
By Lee Pridemore
The New York Times Cooking App is a seventy-two day shoot in Craig Claiborne’s kitchen with sous chef name of Chang and dishwasher name of Waters. Bartender’s name is Easy Rawlins.
Worth It 5/5
The interwebs have so many amazing recipes, why pay for content? Answer: because this is so encyclopedic, so easy to use, and so generally awesome.
Can always count on the recipes for all occasions. A real find!
Recipes are tried and true! 3/5
By erica b young
Loving the recipes on here but the functionality of the app could be improved upon.
Security risk 3/5
This app continues to copy the contents of my clipboard, even though that flaw has been known for a while. I got a screen shot of it.
best UI of any app out there 5/5
i love this app. it’s so much fun to browse, but it’s also wildly user friendly. the “start cooking” feature takes away all the hassle of cooking from a recipe on a screen; it holds your place between the ingredients and instructions so that you can toggle between the two seamlessly. i’ve raved about it to so many friends; 4 now have their own subscription. worth every single penny of the $5 a month, and has wildly expanded my cooking repertoire. everything i’ve made has turned out so well. 10/10 would recommend, or gift a subscription to a loved one who likes to cook if you don’t. <3
Enhancement request: export shopping list to Reminders app 🛒 3/5
By Alec Leamas
While this app is very impressive, and the content is amazing, the app should endeavor to add a more practical feature. Hypothetically, let’s say that I’ve picked two recipes or more to prepare for the week. Wouldn’t it be great if by selecting these recipes together, that someone could generate a grocery list, or simply a list that could be exported to the Reminders app. The list generated could be called “groceries“, or “Market Shopping List”, but the bottom line is that if we’re going to cook, we have to go out and get the ingredients, so this app would benefit from taking this into account.
Former Garde Manger, Looking for New Recipes 5/5
Having spent many hours working the charcuterie, apps and dessert station I enjoy perusing the NYT food section and recipes online. Looking at older recipes from Claiborne and Franey takes me back to to the era before computers and cell phones when print and Julia Childe ruled. I still consult my collection of cookbooks but now spend considerable time on the Times’ website. Many thanks for your invaluable service!
Terrific website. I use it all the time for reading and cooking. Very imaginative and DELICIOUS!
Thanks so much
Cannot access the app 1/5
I paid for a years subscription. Was not able to log in. Very frustrating. I canceled the subscription and deleted the app.
Nice app, could use some updates 4/5
I’ve been a fan of NYTimes recipes for many years. I’ve been using the app for at least a couple years. It’s nice for finding some new ideas. Sometimes, there’s too much of a focus on ethnic and/or spicy foods.
Bring back more of the old Marc Bittman recipes.
Recipe Box needs an update. I don’t like it organized by meal type, breakfast, lunch dinner. Difficult to find recipes you’ve saved. Would be better to be organized by food type: chicken, meatloaf, etc. Add search for Recipe Box.
My whole family of foodies uses this 5/5
I bought this for my husband and then my children who all cook very different food fell in love. Best gift ever!
I use it almost every day 5/5
I have tried several recipe apps but this has become the only one I use. Many times I can search for ingredients that I have on hand and find a great recipe. I also use the app to plan for dinners and it is great for planning simple meals on road trips. I can save recipes to my recipe files and title them how I want (ie. Camping, Summer bbq, Pantry, Xmas 2019 menu etc.). It is also great to have access to NYTimes how-to videos to get inspired! The only thing I still prefer to use cookbooks for are regional recipes and specialty foods (cakes, breads).
Inspiration and direction for the beat up cook 5/5
By Former agent
BC (before Covid) I looked to NYT and its amazing parade of food artists for a new idea or a new way to entertain guests or wow family (so the kids would visit more often) with new dishes or a twist on the old ones. DC (during) is making this more important than ever even if there are only the two of us in it together for the ling haul. Food is a variable when we are all starved for social stimulus and the normal variations in life that are stymied by C.
Like so many, I’ve made bread for the first time—successfully—thanks to Mark Bittman and countless reader tips along with his own updates to a recipe that should be awarded the Nobel Peace prize. Who can disagree over hot bread and butter? And the perfected recipes that pop up daily or I find as I search the site have resulted from the in perfect hasslebacks, amazing skillet chops and steaks, 1137 recipes for amazing chicken dishes. Honestly, I now have a collection of food porn pictures and I never photographed anything but the beautiful cakes I made BC. I bought my sister a subscription for her birthday because every night now she wants a pix of what’s for dinner and an explanation of how to make it. Totally worth it! It’s my cooking Geritol!
Brown sugar 5/5
Excellent recipe but by mistake I used brown instead of white sugar tastes great, excellent texture. I did mix butter & eggs together first before adding eggs and vanilla.
Daily recipes 5/5
Have become addicted to your daily recipes. They follow my farmshare or visa versa.
Great App with Crippled Search 4/5
I use this app daily, and love the fact that we can save recipes from non-NYT sources. These recipes, however, are excluded from search results! As my recipe collection has grown, the usefulness of this app is declining. FIX THE SEARCH FEATURE TO ONCE AGAIN INCLUDE NON-NYT RECIPES WE HAVE SAVED! Do this one thing, and this is a 5-star app.
Fabulous resource 4/5
By Raging Rose
I no longer can live without the Times cooking site: the depth and breadth of the collection is fantastic. The reviews are often very helpful, as is the ability save one’s own notes. My one gripe is the search function, which is limited and no longer allows one to find recipes saved from other sites.
Fraud app 1/5
I paid subscription for an entire year, and it doesn’t even let me to use it!!!!!
Enjoy all the recipes 5/5
Best Fruit Gallet recipe. Always options for lunch or dinner in the NYT Cooking Section
Good recipes, bad search engine 3/5
The site offers a great selection of recipes. But often I can’t find a recipe that I saw in the NYT a few days earlier. Unless I have the exact title of the recipe I have to do a Google search that will then take me back to the site.
Best cooking app 😍 5/5
