Weekly inspo 5/5
I recently signed up and I get the emails and I look over the different recipes and it gives me inspiration for that week I often like to cook dairy free and gluten-free and I know how to substitute things but every recipe has been phenomenal.
Best library of recipes 5/5
Terrific well designed app that gives you access to vast library of NY Times recipes. Each recipe also has 100s of comments from users who have cooked recipes and made adjustments. Hard to find something you are looking for that hasn’t been cooked by NY Times experts.

NYT Cooking App is Great! 5/5
By G RUMP '..
I use this app almost everyday. It’s great!! I recommend it to all my friends who cook!
Watch the temp! 5/5
So delicious! Wouldn’t change a thing, but chops cooked more fully during my searing in a cast iron skillet and took much less time in the oven. Mind your meat thermometer and you will be rewarded.
Super Useful! 4/5
Great recipes, varied and well-written. I use it everyday if only for new ideas. Also the commenting community is sophisticated and worth reading. Problem: the search function is poorly designed.
Printing to my printer 1/5
By Dr. Wiz USC
Why do the recipes appear blank
Essential app 5/5
I have hundreds of cookbooks I’ve accumulated over the years, but this is my first go-to source for ideas and recipes, from basic to exotic. And the comments are often hilarious-a typical one lays out how the commenter changed the recipe in 14 different ways, but then complains about the result, blaming the recipe that they didn’t follow. Use the recipes with confidence, read the comments and use their alterations with care.
Great recipes 5/5
By Peter and Connie
We have had great success with every recipe we have tried. No failures at all! NYT cooking has become our “go to” for recipes.
The best cooking app! 5/5
Love this app, very thorough explanations, good pictures, and well-tested, reliable, excellent recipes.
Easy to use great ideas 5/5
By its still me just on phone
I love the app. I also love the laptop version. When some thing is on sale at the market whether it’s a certain kind of meat or a fruit or vegetable that I’ve always been curious about I can see if there’s a recipe. I also have some people whose recipes I think are always to my taste: Melissa Clark, FlorenceFabricant ,Sam I am willing to take a risk on parentheses Bittman and Sifton) and I have found some entirely new kinds of cooking Yewsnde Komolafe.It’s great Just get Jacque Pepin back writingAnd I’ll be able to turn out good meals without killing myself
Impossible to cancel 1/5
By Mo Baby
The creators of this subscription service have made it virtually impossible to cancel your subscription once you’ve started it - so beware! After waiting for many cumulative hours on-hold between the customer care phone line and the apparently un-manned chat service in the app (the only ways offered to request to cancel your subscription) - I finally decided to go for a stalemate and just pause my subscription (so I would at least stopped being charged temporarily) - and of course the app gives the message that a “technical error has occurred please try again”. It’s a con and I am thoroughly unamused. The app itself is fine and the recipes are of course wonderful. But if you find yourself unwilling or unable to continue paying for the subscription- The NYT will still take your money whether you like it or not
Grocery Lists & Comments 3/5
I no longer have the ability to add items to the grocery list. After “adding” them, they simply disappear.
The comments section is incredibly helpful but the execution is straight out of 1998. At the very least, nested comments should be utilized.
Buy it, 100% worth it 5/5
Finally bought the app after lurking NYT recipes for a few years. Wish I could make up for lost time! Every recipe I have tried has been a winner, and the way they’re written has me so spoiled now: clear, concise, specific, and sufficient, without pages and pages of fluff (looking at You, cooking blogs). Reader/home cooks’ comments are easy to click on and read, so you get a chorus of extra tips for each recipe. I love this app. Truly an unexpected favorite. Get it!
Wish I could zoom into pics 4/5
I wish I could zoom into the pictures. Otherwise, love.
So Many Good Ideas 5/5
For a couple of years I’ve enjoyed using the NY Cooking App to help me expand my horizons on food. The recipes tend to be very easy to understand & execute. My family loves never knowing what to expect - other than good food.
NYT Cooking 4/5
Great app, awesome to have recipes, for the ingredients I have, right at my fingertips, right next to everything cooking on the stovetop. Horrible thing about this app on my iPhone 13 though is that when I minimize the app, it makes me restart at the front page of the app and I have to search the recipe I was on to get back to where I was. Very annoying
Star Ratings in Search Results 💕 5/5
Have always loved this app and the recipes, but came on to personally thank whoever on the app team decided to show recipe stars in search results.
Game changer, gave the people what they want!! Give this person a raise!!
Yassss NYT cooky 5/5
I love to cook this app help me greatly
Great website terrible app 1/5
Love the concept, love the website, hate hate hate the app. Very unstable and is constantly crashing. Better to just go through the website, although I'd love if they fixed the app. Children can make apps these days, and do! You'd think the NYT could do a little better here. 😒
A great reference 5/5
By UES Jazz
I use this app. all the time if for no other reason than to give me ideas, being app too, it acts as a shopping list? I have used ‘Cooking’ for many years, preceded by Craig Claibourn’s masterpiece which I also still refernce
Tried and true 5/5
The recipes are great! The comments are even better! They help elevate every dish!
Easy to use great recipes 5/5
Very nicely laid out with ingredients on one page and cooking instructions on the other.
Worth to try - you will love it 5/5
The best cranberry sauce ever!
Fluffy, delicate, cakes cookies 5/5
Beautiful little pillows. Doubled the recipe to use up the entire can of pumpkin purée. Iced with a dollop of maple icing (maple syrup, powdered sugar, milk).
The Best cooking App 5/5
This app has the best recipes, easiest to access and save and my absolute go to app for both new and vintage recipes
I purchased a mark bittman cookbook app. Now it’s been surreptitiously removed from my phone with no way to get it back and I’m directed here instead. No, thank you.
The Best 5/5
By Love to cook? someimes.
I love the NYT cooking. They give me everything I need, from basic to complicated, never lying, and with reader reviews and additions that help make cooking wonderful.
Hitting “see more guides” goes to editors collections 2/5
No matter what I hit, it always goes to Editors Collections in terms of the “see more…”
Great until your screen locks 1/5
There are some fantastic recipes, but the app will sometimes reset its state when your screen locks. This means when go back to the next step of a recipe you’ll have to find it again! This is incredibly frustrating.
Spur of the moment or planned meals 5/5
NY Times Cooking Club offers the flexibility for anyone to plan a delicious meal on the spur of the moment or to enjoy the planning process at a more leisurely pace. Most of the recipes are amazing!
Why I love NYT cooking 5/5
By NEK KATHY
Plug in an ingredient and you have nearly endless ways of using it. From simple to gourmand there are recipes for everything. There are great variations on a theme…like the current Gruyère and pepper scones. I mean, heaven. Honestly, I do not want to think about cooking without it. And I love cooking.
Good app, terrible subscription policy 2/5
The recipes are pretty good, and the recipe layout is nicely done. There is something soul crushing about paying $40/yr only to still be tracked by third party advertisers and served their ads. 👎
Every Cook Needs this 5/5
By Marco Max
From newbie to Michelin Star every cook will benefit from this app.
An education 5/5
By Mert erogul
Not only am I keeping print journalism alive, my wife and I are learning to cook.
Its not free 1/5
The app is not free.
My go-to recipe source. 5/5
My poor cookbook collection! I find myself turning to my NYT’s recipe app more often than my lifelong collection of cookbooks. I love the recipes, the reviews and the images - and it takes up no space! The recipes are easy to understand and follow. You can even generate a shopping list!
I highly recommend the NYT Recipe Collections APP to all serious cooks and foodies, but especially to young, novice cooks. This App will help them develop a strong skill set and better appreciate good food!
This app is an essential part of any serious culinarians toolkit, professional and amateur alike.
Can’t share recipes even though 10 free are allowed 2/5
I sometimes share recipes with family around the holidays for ideas. Every time I share a recipe and the recipient clicks on the link they are taken to the site, which asked if they want to get a subscription. When they refuse the subscription the app then takes them to the recipe of the day with no access to the recipe sent. Part of my subscription fee includes the ability to share a limited amount of articles. The shared articles has not reached the limit. Also, if I am on the app when the recipient gets the link and then is rerouted to the front page my app reroutes me to the front page as well!
App is good, STOP with the “Turn on Notifications” announcement 2/5
By Raisin Brahms
Look, if I wanted to turn on notifications I would. When I click on an NYT cooking link from Safari, it opens up the app. Unfortunately, it takes me to a screen to turn on notifications (which I intentionally turn off), and then I have to go back to safari and click the link again to actually open the recipe. Your reminders have really lessened the experience and usability of the app.
I use this app... a LOT. Really love the writing and recipes. Searching can be a bit frustrating at times - I’ll see something I like in the online paper, and it can be oddly difficult to find! Other than that, it is hugely useful to me!!
Okay, but not as special aa they think it is… 3/5
Loads of recipes, comments are good - user input, mostly work- but not all well tested.
- cannot lookup ingredients; not sure how it works on android, but for iPhone users one needs to exit program open browser type in the ingredient and search. Why wouldn’t one be able to use the built in feature - highlight and search?
- relatively costly; you pay for it
- hard to find recipes; labelling, book marking and searching for recipes is a bit kludgy.
Fix the widget! — EDIT: Fixed! 5/5
the recipe of the day on my home screen is the main incentive to visit this app and make a recipe, but it is persistently buggy and shows up empty (without any image/text). a couple more stars at least if this issue is fixed!
EDIT: thanks for addressing this bug quickly developers!
Caregiving Support! 5/5
After over 35 years of teaching, I finally retired and was able to slow down and enjoy life. Sadly less than half a year later, those dreams were dashed when I suddenly found myself a full time caregiver for my husband. On top of that, the pandemic hit, and our world shrunk down to a five-room condo and leaving home was too dangerous to even think about. As options dwindled, I filled my days with activities that could be done safely. Planning and preparing daily meals became a welcome outlet! Thanks to that NYT cooking section and app, I have endless meals to try, and as things gradually open up once again, I have bright spots in my otherwise often challenging days, when I can forget, if only for a moment, that life can still be fun! My endless thanks to NYT for keeping me sane!
Great recipes but useless search results 2/5
What good is a database of great recipes if you can’t search for what you want? There seems to be a misunderstanding among the developers as to the purpose of a search function. It is to return a small number of relevant results, but this app returns a large number of irrelevant results. Search for a single word such as “fricasee” and you’ll get results that don’t even have that word. Search for “shrimp and spinach” and you’ll get every recipe that has either shrimp or spinach. The app is practically useless with such a terrible search function.
Billing Issues 1/5
I subscribed for a year because I loved the service but after I did so, the app shortly would not let me login and said that I have no subscription.
When I called the customer service rep fixated on another account associated with my email that no longer had a subscription. I told them that yes, that was my account but the account that I entered a year long agreement was different - i used my Apple ID. Somehow they could not find my account in their system even though I had an account number, email, date charged, etc. I called several times and every. Single. Time. Customer service tells me that there is nothing they can do because the OTHER account was cancelled (which has nothing to do with the current account in question). I wasted $40 to never use my account.
A new idea, an unexpected twist on the old, a fabulous staple standard…. I love the NYT. Thank you!
UI is lacking and search is too strict 3/5
The UI is not very intuitive (would be better on the top of the screen IMO) and the search function is way too stringent; a search for ‘mushroom strogonoff’ doesn’t bring up the recipe AT ALL - at least in the first 50 results. Using the correct spelling ‘stroganoff’ and it is the first result. So 1 letter wrong and it’s as if the recipe doesn’t exist!
Printing is also harder than it should be - why not just have a ‘print’ button rather than go through the ‘share’ menu?
Umami salad 5/5
Subbed Boursin for goat as it’s what I had. On hand. Beautifully balanced texture and mushrooms bring umami in droves. Added a touch Of liquid smoke to my mushrooms to invoke bacon notes….
Will repeat often. Thanks!!
