Always de-lish!!!! 5/5
I have yet to sample a bad recipe! Every recipe has been wonderful, not terribly difficult and every one a crowd pleaser! I eagerly await my next recipe and the praise it will bring me. My mouth is watering right now as I think about the vegetarian curry I’m making today!!!
Hate mixing politics with food 2/5
This app could benefit by sticking to food. Why would you think your political opinions are of interest to me when I am looking for culinary ideas? Your daily emails would be so much better if shortened up by eliminating the stench of politics.
Family friendly ground beef surprise 5/5
By The umpalalumpa
My fussy family devoured this dish. I only had 1 14 oz can of fire roasted tomatoes and this was sufficient. So glad to have an alternative to tacos.
Signed up but wouldn’t let me in 1/5
I signed up, paid the annual subscription, and then the app wouldn’t let me in. I called the number in the app and was told it was the wrong number.
Who are these jokers? Seriously, this is a joke. Please hire a product manager.
Practical, clear and exciting. 5/5
By compulsive cook
This is my go to site for all types of recipes. I really like the daily news letter and the information about things that are new to me.
Make ratings more visible 3/5
Need to show ratings or be able to sort by ratings without going into each recipe
Sort by stars 4/5
Would be much improved to be able to sort a search by rating/stars. Very good, overall.
Daily dose of culinary dreams 5/5
I use it for emergency inspiration, or for an idea for clever uses of whatever refrigerator leftovers Might need a leap toward immortality. The read is so relaxing that I often find myself reading the app on plane rides in anticipation of a homecoming.
Idea factory 5/5
Excellent for breaking tired old habits and generating new ideas
Love the news letters 5/5
I look forward to the emails each week with wonderful recommendations. NYT Food is well worth the subscription cost.
Recipes—and Sam Sifton! 5/5
I have been relying on, and enjoying, this column from the start. Such a broad variety of dishes from nearly every culture under the sun. Sundays are especially wonderful because Sam writes about the other parts of his life—characters, travels, books, music. Our tastes are amazingly similar, considering that I am a nearly-80-year-old woman. I could go on and on about the dishes I’ve enjoyed thanks to this feature.
The NYT Cooking offers a huge variety of recipes. There’s always something for any meal, or special occasion. It’s my go-to source for interesting recipes.
My Go To! 5/5
A fast fun resource that I rely on to satisfy my ongoing search for tasty treats! My favorite is often the Comments which not only give good critiques and suggestions but are more than not written by hysterically funny enthusiasts and cooking officianatos!
How to save a life 5/5
The app has one shortcoming: it lists ingredients in one pane, then it lists directions in another. “Add the salt and baking powder” means flipping back to the ingredients pane to see measurements. For those cooks who pre-measure all their ingredients then line them up on the counter waiting to deploy them, that’s great. Nothing in my life is that planned.
Regardless, when my significant other got sick, I discovered that this app helped me keep both of us alive with excellent, tasty food, brilliant how-to videos, and an awesome depth of recipe types and cuisines. Something like 15,000 recipes, searchable and categorized, much larger and more efficient than any cookbook. The handy shopping list feature lets me download the ingredients to my phone to take to the grocery store, giving me more time to care for our house, our pets, and her.
I use this app every day. As her health declines, my other half says she just wants plain, no fuss food, then gladly accepts the NYT grilled cheese and tomato soup, or Sifton’s smash burger. It doesn’t take hours of preparing a Julia Child-worthy meal in order to find little gems in this app that are simple and delicious. And quick.
This app has restored a great bit of my quality of life. I love it, and I love the NYT for providing it. It’s really a life saver in the sense that life is more than continuing to breathe and pump blood. For that, we have doctors. For life, we have the NYT.
Making a non-chef look good 5/5
I have always been a mediocre cook and an even worse baker... I readily admit to both because, well, it’s true. Because “never say die” is my credo, I have tried over and over again to create deliciousness off of recipes I’ve chosen with inconsistent results (read: terrible tasting food/family and friends who don’t want to hurt my feelings).
This has historically put pressure on any recipe I’ve chosen to be both doable and deliver food that tastes good. Plenty of web recipe searching delivered more confusion and inconsistent results. Then, last spring, I discovered the NYT Food app.
While there is no miracle cure, this app comes close. I have access to world of resources here that have transformed my cooking life. The way recipes are organized, broken down, and then supported by reader comments is perfect for the me. I can find and have tried recipes in almost every category, from less complicated weeknight main dishes to desserts that have minimized human error and delivered on their promises.
Gone are the fearful looks of my family and friends, who seem genuinely happy to have me contribute to Sunday family dinner. I get that I’m on the learning curve, but my skills are SO much better, and I’m enjoying myself along the way.
Can’t live without it 5/5
Great inspirations for just about every occasion. Love the save feature.
Calories not listed 1/5
A couple of months ago they updated the app and we were asked to rate it. At that time nutritional information was provided. NOW NO INFORMATION INCLUDING CALORIES IS GIVEN.
Incredible insight for weekly meal planning 5/5
This site lights the way for all my recipes. Couldn’t live without it!
Living with NYT food app 5/5
I use it daily - it’s now my cookbook for nearly everything.
This App Has Shaken Up My Cooking Game In a good way 5/5
I love the ease of finding new recipes with just about any ingredient. It has encouraged me to step out of my normal range. Easy to use this app. What’s not to like!
The best recipes 5/5
I have a bookcase filled with cookbooks but this website is my favorite recipe source for the majority of my cooking. Rarely disappointed.
Perfect for someone who loves cookbooks! 5/5
I love to read cookbooks, and this app has saved me a lot of money and space. Everything I’ve ever thought of cooking and more can easily be found. Having the ability to create and edit a shopping list simplifies my culinary projects. Highly recommend.
My go to cooking app 5/5
Have yet to find a bad recipe
Thank you! 5/5
Rarely is a recipe on NYT anything but delicious.
Go to source! 5/5
Love almost every recipe we have made! This has really helped expand my breadth of cooking creativity, and I love the job Sam Sifton does. His writing is quite entertaining as well. My one caution: the cook times, as reported, assume that your prep is done (at least for me) so I always add about 30%. I really appreciate the explanations of the “whys” behind using certain ingredients along with substitute options and additional uses. Keep up the great work - I’m on my third annual subscription and love it!
This app is beautifully formed and executed - not to mention that it is consistently updated in ways that are welcomed and helpful. Thank you.
I use this app almost everyday. Couldn’t live without it!
Easy and quick 5/5
Sauce was also excellent on rice. Also served with roasted carrots, olives paired well with this side too.
Love most recipes but needs nutritional information 4/5
I really love most of the recipes. This app is convenient for searching by ingredient as well as suggesting new ideas I might not have searched for. The user reviews are sometimes helpful but also often funny as people basically offer suggestions to modify the recipe so much it becomes a different recipe altogether. My one but huge complaint is the lack of nutritional information for most recipes. There are many reasons people want and need the nutritional information. And yes, it’s possible to figure it out oneself. But given it’s an app I pay to subscribe to, and the NYT frequent articles about health, it’s disappointing they don’t offer the basic nutritional information for all of their published recipes.
Great App For Cioks 5/5
By Old Guy Cook
Many great recipes. Some very easy other more complex. Good selection of vegetarian recipes.
Never come close to cooking most of them but fun to check them out them pick the ones that work for me.
The best cooking app! 5/5
NYtimes cooking is the best cooking app. I use it all the time. I love that you can save recipes and see everyone’s reviews and comments. Best app ever!
Enjoy these ideas immensely 5/5
I enjoy reading and trying recipes, and the recipes from NYT are simple, yet sophisticated. A new food here, a new technique there- this is not aspirational cooking. It’s something I can actually do. Thank you NYT.
Great recipes but need nutritional info 5/5
I absolutely love the recipes on this app, the organization, the variety, the videos, the how to basics. The only thing that would improve the app is nutritional information including calories.
One and only! 5/5
Changed our family eating and great to give as a gift!
Game changer. A must-have. 4/5
All in all any home cook will be ecstatic to have this app. Well worth the $. Amazing recipes and format. Wish the search function were more user-friendly (must have correct spelling and doesn’t have memory function) and you could pin recipes to switch back and forth while cooking from more than one page. Thanks for the gold standard NYT.
Wonderful, helpful 5/5
By Parsely Haw
Even if you don’t feel like cooking it’s so much fun to explore. Miles of great recipes and inspiration within.
All the good food at your finger tips 5/5
I really enjoy the website. It’s easy for me to find recipes and organize Them. It’s easy to retrieve the recipes for cooking. I love the photos and recipe format too.
My “ Go To” site for inspiration 5/5
Recently diagnosed with pre diabetes, I was at a loss for simple low carbohydrate main dish recipes but NYT Cooking App often saves dinner! Excellent all around reference site!
One of our essential sources 5/5
Says it all. In a house with a pretty serious cook is. Why? Great interface, nice app features, and access to a trove of awesome recipes from basic to gourmet.
These all combine to make NYTC one of our essential sources for meal planning and inspiration. Plenty of meals that work for our busy family.
Fav Food App 5/5
I love this app and NYT cooking. Great recipes. Easy to use. I like that the app stays lit while I’m cooking so I’m not constantly unlocking my phone every time I need to switch gears. It’s well thought out - you can make as many folders as you want to store recipes. Full of great pics, videos, tutorials, etc. Well worth the $40 annually or whatever the price is.
Game changer 4/5
I was already a happy home cook before using this app, but I have tried more new recipes and expanded my pantry and confidence more in the past year than in any year I can remember.
One note: I wish the app and the Instagram account were more synced, since I’m alerted to new recipes most frequently on IG, but there’s no direct link that opens in-app. Links open to the nytimes site, otherwise it requires a search in the app. Not a big deal, but that seamlessness would be sweet 👌🏼
signing in 1/5
Signing in with saved password is frustrating
Fast and fabulous! 5/5
This was very good! Easy to make for a dinner party as a lot can be done ahead.
Vegan filters! 4/5
Love the app and the recipes, but I wish there was a way to filter based off dietary preferences. I’m vegan 99% of the time and it would be nice to only see recipes that either are vegan or could easily be made vegan.
Money saving & Waist saving 5/5
NYT cooking helps us avoid $200 restaurants on Saturday night by teaching us Beautiful dishes for $25-45. Participating is better than Spectating !
Cooking comments are a riot 5/5
Great recipes but the money is in the comments. Fear the well-spoken homecook with dignity.
Imagine How Organized! 5/5
By Linda in Orlando
This app is an all-time favorite. It allows one the satisfaction of feeling completely organized, with special or favorite recipes at your fingertips, and in categories. A great search engine if you happen to have leftover buttermilk or fancy spice you need to use up. AND since I don’t even cook that much, the notes make for great reading and I can entertain myself for an hour at a time. Kudos to the NYT and another great reason to be a subscriber!
Favorite Source of Great Recipes 5/5
By K Krems
This is my go-to app for recipes. Many have become part of my permanent repertoire. It’s also a great resource when looking for inspiration and something new to cook. The app is easy to navigate, visually appealing, well organized and it’s easy to save recipes from the NYT’s vast collection into your recipe box. All of the Times’s food writers are excellent (Melissa Clark never steers me wrong) and the recipe notes from other users are invaluable for tips and tweaks. I highly recommend this app.
Great but needs nutritional info 3/5
The recipes are amazing but they need to include nutritional info given this is a subscription app.
