"The proof of the cooking..."

Reviewed by / Dec 18, 2014

Cookpad combines handy cooking tutorials and social networking to bring you the most out of cooking


Formerly known as Allthecooks, Cookpad combines handy cooking tutorials and social networking to bring you the most out of cooking.

You can search from over 150,000 recipes, with filters for ingredients, ease of preparation and dietary restrictions.

You can create custom shopping lists, participate in user forums or comment on individual recipes and even upload your own favorite recipes for others to enjoy.


Cookpad is a beautiful simple app to navigate, with a bright and appealing design. The home screen features a tiled design where you can scroll through and tap on the latest recipe pics.

Search criteria are very thorough: you can go via course, food type, occasion, dietary requirements and even by specific kitchen tool.

Within each recipe you can comment, review and ask the author questions, as well as save ingredients to a shopping list, get nutritional info and switch between metric and imperial.

And of course, you can upload your own recipes and photos and message others to share ideas.


It would be great if you could search by specific ingredient. Other than that, we are big fans.

Developer's original description available here
Cookpad is an unique cooking community app where people post recipes and pictures. It's your personal recipe composer.

After cooking your recipe, other people can post the photo of their own attempt of making the recipe and others can comment.

A lot of recipes also note which other recipe on the site inspired the poster to come up with theirs.
This is what makes the site unique - you can follow a complete genealogy of a recipe, and keep on discovering new variations on themes. The recipes themselves don't need to be anything fancy, and that’s another reason why the site is unique. It gives a look into what real people are making for their families at home.

** We just rebranded the app from Allthecooks to Cookpad **

It's the best place to share and find recipes.

The recipes are synchronized to your watch timeline as soon as you open them.

    I use this app nearly everyday and have recommended it to several friends & family members. HOWEVER with the last update the app continuously closes on me. I have not been able to look at all the recipes because the app will randomly quit. I wish I never updated this last time. So disappointed.
