“If you’re always scorching the stew and you just can’t seem to achieve perfectly puffed chocolate chip cookies, let this free app serve as your new cooking companion. “ — Real Simple

“If you’ve ever ruined an entire meal because of a seemingly tiny mistake in timing or ingredient proportioning, than we have an app for you.” — Business Insider

What's New in Version 1.9.2

NEW in-step tutorial videos! We added several hundred new ingredient-specific videos. So we’ll show you how to supreme grapefruit, julienne carrots, and the proper way to mince an onion, all on demand, right when you need the extra instruction. SideChef knows exactly when you are using each ingredient a step and will automatically show you related videos.

We also completely redesigned the notifications and comments pages. And we’ve managed to do all of this while reducing the size of to app so it takes up way less space on your phone.

Customer Reviews

Great cooking aid

This app has a ton of awesome recipes and you can add your own. When you're cooking it will read the steps aloud as you go, so you don't have to keep scanning your cookbook. However, it isn't very good at finding recipes using multiple ingredients, which is something I have found very useful in another app since I like to shop at farmers markets. I'd like to use solely this app for cooking and recipes, but I like being able to search using multiple ingredients so I can just punch in what I can find at the farmers market and find recipes.

So awesome

Best thing ever makes cooking like a pro as easy as making tacos with a mix


I love how easy this app is to use. I love the recipes it has. All around awesome cooking app.
