Best Recipe App for All kinds of people

Tina Nessa Ceon

I love Yummly, I don’t remember how I found out about it. But it has been a lifesaver, it’s great to save recipes I find online that I want to look at later and not get lost in the bookmark section of my phone. It’s also good for a vegan like me to find recipes, but also serving size and nutrition facts.I scan look at all the egan recipes in one place instead of looking them up online and finding out it isn’t vegan. Plus I can look for recipes using certain ingredients I have laying around. They have such a inclusive dietary preference all types of vegetarians, paleo, plus all kinds of allergies. They have now guided videos, I’ll check those out soon and see what they’re like. I honestly can’t think of anything to complain about. It’s a useful tool for me and one of the must-have food apps on my phone. All the other exclusively vegan recipe apps , or just general apps are overpriced and don’t do half the things Yummly does or if they do you have to pay a ridiculous subscription fee. The best part it is all free! Not a free app with a lot limitations on certain recipes, but there’s a premium membership with access to over thousand of recipes and videos. Or it’s a free trial , it’s actually legitimately free, I mean it has prompted recipes from brand companies but its clearly labeled. Plus I mean the app has to be paid for somehow. If that’s the only ads I’ve got to deal with, I’ll take it!

Amazing, so many good features


Yummly is a great app. I have found so many recipes on the app that I never would have found otherwise! If you aren’t sure about a recipe, just look at the reviews for the recipe. Reviewing recipes is honestly such a good idea, as most recipe-filled websites or apps don’t have such features, meaning that you have no idea if the food will turn out well. You can save the recipes, which is another great feature. Find a recipe you would like to try? Just save it so you don’t have to go back and find it later. If you are planning on making several different things at the same time, you can add the ingredients you need to the shopping list on Yummly, sorted by category of foods. When you first log on to Yummly, the user can choose what foods they dislike, what they are allergic to, if they are on any diets, and what kinds of dishes they enjoy preparing. This filters the recipes you see, and you can then find more recipes you would like. Yummly is my #1 choice as a baker and chef.

Great app


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.
