Best Recipe App for All kinds of people

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!

Yummy Yummly

I’m a major Foodie. I have found so many incredible and interesting recipes on Yummly. Even ones I’ve used over the years myself. I really enjoy the ability to research so easily. I try a lot of recipes that fall into several different categories. So it’s always a pleasure to come on to the app and be able to research in less time than books, especially when the recipes give you nutritional information that is accurate.
However, with all the great things one thing has begun to bother me somewhat. I go to the recipe and the page is gone and that is when you go to directions. It’s very unfortunate to find a wonderful recipe only to find that it’s not complete or accurate. If you fix this Yummly I will give you the 5 stars.
I switch from this app Yummly and Food Network to create a planned menu weekly. I also use true and tried recipes I’ve counted on throughout the years. I try as often as I can to give a comment on the recipe I am trying for the first time. However, with so much cooking and daily life, commentaries can get pushed to the side. I do eventually get to them just may not be the same day. Keep up the great job and work Yummly and please fix that error page, I have been disappointed quite a bit lately from that ordeal. Thanks for asking for a review after I used the app for a while. I appreciate the timing.

Hi HappyGoLucky1970,
We truly appreciate your thorough review of the app and we're happy to hear that for the most part you're really enjoying it!

You mentioned that some of the recipes that you've visited has missing directions more recently on the app. Without knowing exactly which recipes may have this issue, I'm not exactly able to say for sure what is happening, but if the next time you see this issue on the app, you use the report button at the bottom of the ingredients page our Support team would be more than happy to help look into this further and help figure out what's going on. We do want to get this fixed as soon as we can! You can also reach out to our team any time at

Thanks again for all of your support! :)

Yummly in my tummly

I’ve been using the Yummly app for a few years now. I can find every recipe I am searching for, and believe me it has come in handy. In the last year I’ve switched diets from Mediterranean to Vegan to Keto, now I’m low carb. All the while I’m gluten free. The app makes it easy to obtain allergy free recipes and recipes geared toward my diet. I also receive emails from Yummly. Just before Christmas I receive cool kitchen recommendations. I may put some items on my Christmas list for me or buy items for my friends and family. I am an avid gardener and sometimes need fresh new ideas for an over abundance of vegetables or fruits. With Yummly I can search the vegetables name and find all sorts of recipes. This year I canned my very own tomato sauce with a Yummly recipe! I also learned how to cut a whole chicken in half and roast it! The amount of “Yums” on each recipe make it simple for me to chose what recipe I want to try if multiple recipes pop up under my search. I’m rating Yummly 5 stars because I can always find an outstanding recipe to suit my and my family’s needs.
