  • Deceptive

    By Reviewforusall
    The NYT should state up front that a monthly subscription cost is needed to use this App. I will access recipes through my online subscription. I don’t see the need to pay an additional fee. The App is now deleted.
  • The best cooking app!

    By Eli522
    I love this app! I use it multiple times a week. So many great recipes and lots of comments from users to help tweak recipes when necessary. I also find that the star ratings for the recipes are generally accurate.
  • Money Grab

    By Kbergenstein
    Had this app for years, now they want me to shell out $5 to view my saved recipes.
  • Love it!

    By ArpNak
    This app is truly awesome. Not only are the recipes plentiful, easy to follow and awesome, they have a great UX. The comments help me tune up a recipe. The fifth star will come if they allow me to aggregate other recipes on a section of the recipes I save from NYT.
  • Satisfied

    By Atlanta sista
    Always find recipes, in a variety of cuisine choices, that are flavorful and tasty. User comments are helpful. Enjoy the convenience of texting grocery list and also having access to the recipe, be it at either the market or my kitchen. Never get bored!
  • Used to be good, now just a moneymaker ...

    By Phynn
    My old review was how much I loved this app. But the NYT seems to want us to pay for every different feature we use. So I have a digital newspaper subscription, a crossword subscription, and now they want money each month to subscribe to this app. I’ve just lost access to several years’ worth of recipes I saved on this app because I won’t pay a third monthly fee. It felt like a hostage situation, when they told me I no longer get to see my beloved recipes. I’m already paying them for two separate monthly digital subscriptions. This just hurts. It was a good app. Was.
  • Excellent... except

    By Popcycle56
    I love this app, and use it constantly. My one regret is that the search function only brings up NYTimes recipes from my saved recipes. If I want to find recipes saved from other sites, I have no choice but to scroll. As a serious recipe collector, this is an annoying inconvenience and I hope the NYTimes figures out a way around it.
  • Really solid

    By jmdcnyc
    Use it all the time. Viva Melissa Clark!
  • Latest update

    By FWBUfan
    Really don’t like the new format. Liked being able to flip through 5 most recent recipes. Hope you bring that back.
  • Better than cookbooks

    By Sunil and Rama
    Though I love cookbooks and have been collecting them since college in the early 1990s, the NYTimes cooking app has been my go to app for everyday cooking. We cook most of our meals for our family and this has transformed our cooking and brought simplicity and diversity to our meals.
