Not intuitive, buggy 2/5
It’s too hard to navigate, and when I type ingredients, it won’t search.
Love this app but needs a notes feature 4/5
By Mistress of Awesome
I've been using this app for a week and it's already basically changed my life. I can much more easily find recipes to try, add all the ingredients to my shopping list, and schedule what night I want to cook each meal. I'm saving money because I'm not eating out, and my family is happy because they aren't getting the same three meals on constant rotation. HOWEVER. I have one quibble. It appears there is no way to leave yourself a note on a particular recipe (like "try this with half the sugar next time," or "this is my new favorite but the husband doesn't care for it, so make it when he's out"). I instead have to rely on leaving public reviews for each recipe that includes my notes, which isn't ideal. If they were to fix this issue to allow users to leave private notes on recipes, I would easily give this app five stars, as it is otherwise fantastic.
great recipes 5/5
I have found may great recipes on this app. I use it often for ideas for meals and to try something different.
Would recommend 3/5
Pretty cool app. Helps me with finding new things to eat/cook. Some “recipes” do not have cooking steps, roughly 1 in 4 to 5. Would love to see “keto” diet section added, as well as a clean eating diet. Otherwise awesome app.
Very good keep it up 5/5
Really good app, I wish there were more recipes for curry.
Unable to use 1/5
Iphone 7+ sends me a confirmation email but an unclickable link. Can’t sign in to app without it.
Quick, healthy, easy 5/5
Great recipe. Easy.
Joyous Cooking! 5/5
It’s been such fun opening new recipes that are not only delicious, but so sensibly doable. Thanks for expanding my cooking horizon to a joyous level! Bdewbdew
Yummly app 5/5
This cooking app is awesome I can find pretty much any recipe I need.
Lots of great recipes 5/5
There are a ton of recipes on here! You save the ones you want to try. If you don't like them, unsave & try something else. You can look by meal type or by ingredient! You can also save the ingredients to your shopping list!!
SO many awesome dessert recipes is like to try one day! Highly recommend using this!
Love It 5/5
Love this app! So useful :)
Great cooking app 5/5
This app has a variety of recipes for people who want to be eating healthy
Navigating is not intuitive. Half the time I am guessing, hitting buttons until I find what I seek.
Large database of recipes and filter is very nice. Shopping list is nice. Scheduling meals is nice.
Notifications is broken. I'm getting multiple dings to prepare recipes even when not scheduled. Then I get disruptive notifications DURING the preparation of a scheduled meal, including notifications about other recipes. Every time I open the app and close it, there seems to be a barrage of notifications.
Pop Ups & Phishing Site 2/5
When I responded to Yummly’s email today...I got a pop up that is clearly phishing...
Please take action to stop this invasion..
Diet category’s 1/5
If you a vegetarian this is the app for you it’s got about six different categories for non meat eaters diets.
Great app 5/5
There are a lot of pluses about this app. I like being able to put something I want to make in the search box and getting not one but several to many different options.
It also has a function that you can easily create a shopping list for any of the ingredients you might not have on hand.
There are informational discussions as well. I just read about the differences in various flours and how and why it effects what you are baking. In the article it tells how to convert regular flour to cake flour so you don’t have to run to the store and buy some if you don’t happen to have it.
The customer support is outstanding. I was having difficulty finding a recipe that I had just used about a week before so I wrote to the company to ask them why I couldn’t find it. I heard back the next day, on a Sunday from Kiara who was very helpful and thorough. She even offered to try to find the recipe for me.
The only thing that I don’t like about the app is the type. It’s small and hard for me to read. I’m using the app on my phone and when I need to go to the next step, I have to wash and dry my hands then pick up the phone so that I can get it close enough to see what I’m supposed to do next. I’m hoping they will give the user the option to go bigger with the type like some of the online newspapers do, or just make the type a little bolder, bigger and black. If they do that it’ll be perfect.
“Busy” But good! 3/5
By Scott Brundage
Often the “sales pitch” for a dish is too wordy! Satisfies ego of writer before telling a busy me, what to do.
Recipes though, are right on target!
Gr8 App. Absolute Must Try 5/5
This app is def great for ideas when you want to change it up once in awhile.
Really Good but have a question 5/5
This app is really good and it works well! But I have a question on the Smart shopping list what are the squares for next to the ingredients?
Getting started I find 4/5
it hard to get to the recipe marked “yum’d”.
Awesome for a vegetarian diet 5/5
The recipes are great, easy to follow and inspirational. I just browsed through the app. Then while I was at the grocery store I kept referencing the new recipes to put together several dinners. Now we have all the ingredients we need to create unique meals. My only suggestion is that users could link their accounts so my boyfriend and I could select recipes together, and access them without having to message them to each other.
Love the ease 5/5
Great app easy to use and easy to find awesome recipes.
App not user friendly! 1/5
By Sparkle Pink Princess
Trying to view recipes I’ve been emailed. Keeps asking me to log in (when I already am!) & if you search for the recipe by name, I get no results!! 🙄🤬
Really annoying 1/5
By Ephemera Danica
This app has a range of recipes but no single search facility as far as I can see. There are a number of really annoying features: it has so many ads popping up all the time it is impossible to read a recipe without inadvertently hitting one of the very annoying pop ups; there are no metric measurements! Come on guys, who on earth bakes with 10 tablespoons of butter! Even the use of cup measures is so imprecise and variable. Pity because there are a number of interesting recipes. Am deleting this app!
I love Yummly!!! Period.
Pretty good 3/5
For a novice cooker this app is great!! I cook for 5-7 when I cook so the fact that I can change the servings are perfect!!! Only thing with this app is the recipes repeats itself!! Once you do a handful of main recipes you’re out of options . More meat recipes would be great. Not the same recipes over and over and over again. And make the app a little more intuitive....you would blow the competition out of the water!!
By Chief Crow
Yummly gives me awesome suggestions and it’s easy to use
Convenient with lots of choices 5/5
If I can’t find a recipe in my old cookbooks on the shelves, I start looking through Yumly and every time I do I find something I end up using.
I was listening to radio on morning and heard something about a Pavlova dessert. I found it on Yumly that morning and made it for New Year’s Eve! What a successful recipe. Even though my meringue wasn’t perfect, the whole thing with the whipped cream and fruit was delicious!
The Loaded cauliflower Casserole is going to be one of my regular meals!!
Yumly is fun and easy to use.
Dietary Preferences 3/5
I am having a major problem with searching recipes in certain categories. It won’t let me view recipes and asks me to adjust my dietary preferences. I thought I just had too many styles of food selected in my favorites, but that did not fix it. It is like it’s forcing me to put if I’m on a diet or don’t like any foods, but I am not on any diet nor do I have and dietary restrictions. I love all food. It did not do this before so I do not know what is going on. If that fixes I will for sure give it 5 stars!
All encompassing app 5/5
Helpful filters and great variety of options.
Absolutely insufferable 1/5
I've never seen a recipe app that demanded you hand over your personal information like this. It is so in your face that it's just insane.
Great app 4/5
Some of the recipes (how to do links) do not work
Anything I take out the freezer I can find a new way to cook it on Yummly. We rarely eat the same thing twice. This is the best app for cooking!
Yummly would get a 5 star rating if... 4/5
By ljs traveler
If, via the emails or the app, I would be able to get the ingredients and directions to fit in 1 screen shot, I would love Yummly. When I select print, it doesn’t give a clear screen shot. I’m not always near a printer when I’m perusing the recipes. Otherwise, I have found new, more interesting recipes that have definitely been family pleasing, ie:
Tuscan chicken and 6 ingredient orange chicken. Yummly!! Thanks!!
Good site, bad app 3/5
Just bad design. It’s clunky and slow. Animation heavy and doesn’t do what I want a mobile version of the site to do. Hope future updates will fix this.
The App Has Short-Term Memory Loss? 2/5
It seemed like I was going to get super customized results after answering all these questions about my diet, food sensitivities and even cooking skill level, but it recommended to me, a vegan, chocolate cheese cake, chicken, and some weird salad with mayo dressing. Those were literally the first three features under "Just For You". The app looks nice, but what the hell?
Love your recipes❤️
This is fabulous! 5/5
I really like this. It’s like PLATED and I’m the four star chef!
Love the Yummly app 5/5
I awesome app, great cooking ideas👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿😋😋😋
By Christina Fuller
Love using this app, the food is so good and the app is so easy.
I cook for a roommate with celiacs disease. Yummly is hands down the best, and most thoughtful cooking app I can find! I don’t know where I’d be without it!
My Go To!! 5/5
Yummly is one of my favorite apps and I’ve been using it for several years. I love it!!! I’ve recommended it to many and actually ditched the last of cookbooks when I started using this. I love the variety of recipes available but then there are other features like the shopping list, and changing the portion size. The most fabulous feature is putting in some ingredients you have (not knowing what to do with them) and it generates recipes with those ingredients.
Plain old happy 5/5
Always something good!
Freaking Amazing 5/5
By reyona stiles
I have literally introduced this app to all my cooking friends! Yummly hands down is my go to for any recipe. I love how I’m able to tweak the recipe and increase the servings sizes. It would be too cool if one could create a meal prep for like the week with a full grocery list for it and all. I swear I’d use this app 10x more.
Well I can say is this app is so helpful and easy to use.
Pinterest for recipes 5/5
It’s basically Pinterest for only recipes. I use it to plan my boyfriend and i’s dinners each week. It’s been great and I love that you can sort recipes into different categories. 10/10 would recommend
Great recipes 5/5
The recipes are great and the variety is even better. I've enjoyed using this app.
Great stuff! One of the best meal planning apps. 4/5
Only suggestion I would make is to better organize the grocery list. I hate seeing the exact measurements because it confuses me - it would be more reasonable to just write “one lime” or “almond meal”, but I can see that other people would feel the opposite. It’s such a great app the recipes are genuinely yummy!!! A lot of apps similar don’t have yummy goods - just weird concoctions. I’m a vegan and this has helped my transition a ton.
Like it, but not love it 4/5
I would give it 5 stars if it had an option for ingredient substitution, visually need to see the days of the week for each meal that is scheduled so that I can see what I plan to make for the upcoming week, and would love a cooking mode or a way to see the cooking directions without having to scroll all the way to the bottom of the article. Thanks for your time!
