    When I want to make appetizers for a holiday or any occasion, this is the 1st place I go. They have filters that get you right to your specific occasion quickly so you can find the recipes that will make your party perfect.

    When you need inspiration for seasonal dishes, Food Network is an excellent resource. The channel provides 24 hour access to incredible shows about cooking all throughout the year, but they focus more on seasonal dishes during the holidays. This useful app provides quick access to recipes featured on all their shows.

    I am one of those people who can't get enough of the Food Network channel. Chopped, all of the wars shows, I must have at least 5 shows on there I watch on a regular basis. That's why I love this app.

    One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is to watch the 5 or more baking shows that are on Food Network. My other favorite thing is to go on this app and learn how to bake things I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd make.

    Whether I am looking for something that has only 5 ingredients or I'm looking for something new and tasty to try for dessert, this app has never disappointed. It's so easy to use and has lots of great tips.

    I know that I recommend this app a lot, but the reason for that is because it comes in handy for so many recipe needs. There are 1,000s of recipes from the top chefs on here, including chocolate recipes, so you can't go wrong.

    This is definitely one of my favorite apps anytime I want to find a new recipe. Not only does it give you 1,000s of recipes to choose from, but with a subscription, you can have cooking demonstrations right on your device.

    Sometimes it's easier to follow along to a live video or class when cooking a recipe, and this app has over 50 live classes per week, taught by pro-grade experts. Outside of that it's got tens of thousands of recipes to use offline.

    By Gabendoor
    It locks up. I delete it. Miss it after a week and download it again. A week goes by and it locks up again. The pattern continues. Here’s an update. Got an email from the developers. That was encouraging. It asked to contact them, give more details, etc. so they could assist me. I sent an email and Received a reply that said sorry I couldn’t respond to every email. Too bad I like this app that I deleted again for about the fifth time. I might try it again in six months to see if they fixed it. Another update. Technical support contacted me and the person was excellent. We tried several things. Nothing seem to work. I do like this app very much and even tried unloading my whole phone resetting everything and reinstalling from back up that didn’t work. I have some news for technical support. The app now works I turned off my Ad Blocker software and some network security software. Food Network finally loaded I turned the two security programs back on now everything seems to work. If the app works I do recommend it. Even when it didn’t work on my iPhone it worked on my iPad and I was using it there give it a try good luck I hope you don’t have to go what I thought went through but it’s probably worth it.

  • Cooking for my Dad Jan 12, 2020

    By JoyBetrice
    My dad who is 80 came to live with me the summer of 2019 because he was no longer able to take care of himself. When it comes to his tastebuds he is simple and has never experienced different types of foods. He is very old school and a creature of habit. He loves to eat but he is a basic meat and potatoes type of guy because that’s how he was raised. Well I wanted to introduce him to a different way of eating and open up his tastebuds. I prepare different meals weekly from the Food Network App on my phone. My Dad is absolutely loving it. He literally is excited for dinner every night and asks me first thing in the morning, what are you cooking for dinner daughter. When I tell him he throws his hands up and says “oh boy I can’t wait to taste it” lol. He thinks I’m a genius in the kitchen and the best cooker in the world. He doesn’t understand technology, computers and apps so he doesn’t understand it’s the Food Network thats turned me into a Chef 😉. So thank you Food Network for all of your amazing recipes and the tips and tricks I’ve learned in cooking. You’ve truly made an old man happy 😊 ❤️

    I like the app and all the extra stuff (like video guide while cooking). I just opened app and it said to upgrade. I tried, but there's no way to. I uninstalled and reinstalled it, and it's giving me the same message. Paid for a year, only had it a week and now can't use it!

  • Foodie in love, recommending to others. Apr 11, 2020

    By Gabe254
    I cook a lot, and have to say that this app is my go-to. I love the fact that there are so many similar recipes, since I love reading through a few to understand the concept, and then adapting it to my taste. This variety also means that there is a perfect dish for everyone! Definitely helps me with my picky eaters...=^\ My favorite part though, has to be the recipe box they have setup. I get to save all the dishes I like the most in, something like, folders. You can name and sort them how you choose. I've used the basic, breakfast, lunch, dinner, sides, dessert, and sauces, and the like, in addition to some more specific ones for me. Great way to always come back to a recipe that just won't stick into memory. Now I've had this for years and wouldn't trade it. I honestly don't have another recipe app for food on my phone other than this and have recommended it to many. Awesome!
  • Recipes are Fantastic, Minor Complaints May 7, 2021

    By JZCONNOLLY
    There is no doubt that the Food Network is the best recipe app that I have used this far. The serving sizes are always accurate, and there is no shortage of new and fun dishes to make. With that being said, I have a few minor complaints / suggestions. One thing that the app doesn’t do that other recipe apps do is tell you all the cookware / utensils you need before starting. It would be helpful to know all the cookware I would need before starting the whole cooking process. The other feature that I would say needs improvement is the baking instructions. Often times there are multiple steps included in one step making it very easy to forget to do or overlook some important part of the cooking process. It would be helpful if the steps were actually step by step instead of in paragraph form. These are very minor improvements that would make a world of difference when cooking. Please don’t let my small suggestions deter you from downloading this app, as I have had a very good experience and I know you will too!

    I havnt used it much yet but I used to go on food network all the time for my recipes until the ads were becoming unbearable. So i just said, heck this, and stopped. But looking around for a good app to get me some healthy recipes i revisited this and i am really impressed by the redesign. I dont even mind the subscription model... its not really that much and if it keeps those annoying ads away im all for it. Its got a shopping list and meal planner and the ui looks beautiful. This is a lot of what I have been looking for and I do even like how you can add in other recipes outside the site. Thats a nice touch. Not sure if Ill use it but its nice. The only downside is that even though its been years since i have browsed through food networks recipes, im not seeing a whole lot of new content. Right on the front page are recipes I have seen many times before and that was the other reason why i stopped using them. But ill give it a go and see how I like it. I have a feeling i will.

    I have had the premium subscription for a couple of years and worked fine, but once I upgraded my phone I lost access to my subscription. I have even tried to repurchase a subscription and it informs me I am already a member, but have not gained access to my membership. It's too bad because I love the app, if I can't get this fixed I'll cancel my subscription.

  • Zero Stars if I Could Dec 25, 2020

    By hare90
    First I experienced confusion, anger, and finally just disappointment. We downloaded the Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad versions of this app and paid $40 for the premium pass, expecting to be able to watch full episodes of Food Network shows on our Apple TV. This was a Christmas gift for my wife. There is no tab for shows on the Apple TV app. Actually, there is a tab labeled shows, but the contents inside that tab are not full shows, they are short clips of individual recipes, some are barely over a minute long. It is possible to open the App on the iPad, find a full length show, and then hit Airplay icon in the corner to get content to the TV, but after about 9 minutes the audio and video are badly out of sync. Mouths stop and speech continues. The only way to correct this is to pause, disconnect Airplay, reconnect Airplay, and unpause. This must be done every 9-10 minutes. This happened for three different episodes of three different shows. We are using a brand new Apple TV, and 6 month old iPad Pro, and both have the most recent OS on them. Summary: the content is not organized well, the interface is wildly different across platforms, and the delivery of the content is sketchy unless you’re interested in watching the full-length shows on an iPhone or iPad. Disappointed.

  • Nov 17, 2021

    By Jill Stostad
    Great app with one fatal flaw, no way to print the recipes! Since I like printed recipes (to avoid screen timeouts), having to type them myself is a big annoyance. So many food bloggers have that option! It also won't allow me to select and copy text to paste and print, and recipes are too long to fit into a screen shot! What a drag, as I enjoy foodnetwork recipes. I'm rating smartphone app as I use it 95% more than my computer where I didn't try it yet, but not happy with deficit in app.
  • What did they do to this app?? Oct 27, 2019

    By Daphne65
    If they thought they were making it better they are gravely mistaken. I absolutely hate this new version. I have given it time and tried to navigate around and it is so poorly designed. I used to be able to watch all my favorite cooking shows every Saturday and Sunday morning and as I would find a recipe that I liked that the chef was cooking at the time, I could open the app and the apps home page would automatically display what show was on air. I simply tapped the show and it automatically displayed what dishes the chefs were cooking at that time which then I simply saved the recipe to the appropriate board I created in my saves. Now, I have to search around for what is on air and even when I find it, there’s a huge lag. The app is showing the show that aired previously and it’s impossible to find the new show with what they are cooking. If this is the way, the app is going to stay, I won’t be using it all and go back to other recipe/cooking websites and apps. Please bring back the old version😩 Also, you have to “search” for the freaking search engine on this app....Who designed this app? You definitely didn’t make it better. If it’s not broken, DON’T fix it!

    This app has many glitches. Currently it is redirecting me to Google Play for an update when there is none. I cannot open the app to see my recipes at all. Share link for recipes is useless unless the other person also has the Food Network app. Links from Food Network emails attempt to open app but remain stuck at opening screen without ever bringing up the recipe. I may as well uninstall the app and use a web browser. I would expect more from such a large company.
  • 6.0.0 update is the worst Oct 27, 2019

    By cegs8
    I’ve read all the recent reviews available since the 6.0.0 update. They are not favorable. The majority have one star ratings. My rating is one star as of the 6.0.0 update and I would have given no star if that option had been available. I would list all of my issues with the new update but the reviews that I have read have them all. I am now using the Food Network website again for show information, cooking tips, recipes, etc., things I would have used the app for before 6.0.0. I started using this app when the Food Network first made it available on their website. I gave it a five star rating. I have continued to use it after all of the updates, format changes, and glitches, since. However, as of the 6.0.0 update, the smart thing to do is restore this app to it’s pre-6.0.0 format update. If your developer response to this is “thank you for your feedback. If there is anything we can help you with please let us know...”, my answer is “offer your current version as a new altogether separate app”, with it’s new features, the cooking classes, etc. I’m sure there are some users that will use it and like it. cc: The Food Network, Corporate
  • Needs improvement!! May 3, 2020

    By EiffelElysee
    The organization of videos, recipes, and chefs needs to be improved! Search results logic uses every single word, instead of the string of words, resulting in hundreds to thousands of results. What’s worse, there’s no sorting or way to filter the search results. Way too many terrible recipes. Some “chefs” are really scraping the bottom of the barrel just to put something on there. The reminders for live videos is horrible. They either don’t work, only work within 24 hours of the broadcast, or an email is sent over 24 hours beforehand. What good does the email do?! If the email was sent, there’s no reminder when it starts! Once it’s been scheduled, there is no way to undo it. No way to see all the upcoming videos I scheduled or finished viewing in my own personal list. Should work much better for a paid app!!! Developers responded and only addressed one item. Again, what good does receiving an email reminder 24 hours before the class starts without a reminder when it actually starts?! What about seeing our own personal list of classes we’ve scheduled, missed, and viewed?
  • Awful awful awful !!! Jul 24, 2021

    By SB1141
    I’ve had so many problems since my last review it’s even worse than before. Every time I log in i have to change my password to get in or I can’t find my saved recipes. I contact them and they send me to the help center which isnt helpful at all. I contact them and they tell me to do different things. Sometimes they work,but usually not. This app used to be my favorite go to for recipes but they keep making it worse and worse. This is my last time trying. I am deleting it This app is so unreliable. Sometimes I can bring up the season and recipe I want, sometimes not. Mostly not. Today I keep losing it totally. I tap what I want. It hesitates then the whole app goes away and I start over. After several tries I gave up. Go back to the old version!!!! Still love the show. It’s my number 1 This is the best cooking show on tv. It’s fun to watch, very helpful and the crafts are great. I love to cook and try new things but don’t always have a happy ending. this answers a lot of questions. The chefs explain things and are a good combination that seems to enjoy themselves. Keep it up. I love it!!!!

    I, generally, like this app, it has a LOT of great information and recipes. However... 1. It NEVER seems to "remember" I'm a vegetarian. I get meat recipe after meat recipe... 2. NOW they want you to pay for that delightfully jarring foible/offense. So, I go to their site AGAIN - it says vegetarian... 3. Because I checked their site, mysteriously - they've changed the NOTIFICATIONS setting on my phone. 4. You have no idea you're looking at a "premium" recipe, click on it & waste your time...

    I eagerly installed the app this morning and not two hours later I want to delete! I opened it up for first time 10 minutes ago, and all I get are feedback request! Quite literally every thirty seconds! I took three of the same survey within two minutes. Every time you click on recipe it pops up to give feedback. If you say no thanks or not right now it keeps popping up every thirty seconds! If you take survey/feedback, then it waits until you open new recipe. The question is “How likely are you to recommend this app to a friend”...I don’t know if I would because I got thirty seconds into the app before being hounded for feedback. I had no time to explore, to truly use the app. I might have really liked this app, as I find I tend to turn to Food Network for fresh new recipes ...but now I just feel bummed.

  • Negative reviews of recipes are not accepted! Sep 16, 2020

    By lin's recipes
    When I tried the Apple Buckle recipe on this site, I was sorely disappointed, so when I registered a 1 star review and some significant criticism on the Food Network website, I got the following message:” Whoops! There’s a little trouble with our server right now. Please try again later.” I left that review up to re-enter again and again “later”, including the next day, and I kept getting exactly the same message. So, I can only deduce that the site does not really want negative reviews. Then, how representative are their “reviews” if they don’t allow negative ones? By the way, when I tried to access the same recipe again today, it was only accessible if I subscribed to their premium account. Huh? It was available yesterday, and I have printed out the recipe from earlier on. This all seems rather suspicious to me. I am uninstalling this app.

    I have had the premium subscription for a couple of years and worked fine, but once I upgraded my phone I lost access to my subscription. I have even tried to repurchase a subscription and it informs me I am already a member, but have not gained access to my membership. It's too bad because I love the app, if I can't get this fixed I'll cancel my subscription.

    Love the app. However, when I open the app it says new version available so I click the button that says "Go to Google Play Store" to download the update but it says it is up to date. So I open the app from the store and it goes to the same page. I am just going in circles with the app. Please help

    I think there should be a free trial offer for this. I am not subscribing to anything, I don't get to try first! I also don't buy a car without a good solid test drive.

    Great app with one fatal flaw, no way to print the recipes! Since I like printed recipes (to avoid screen timeouts), having to type them myself is a big annoyance. So many food bloggers have that option! It also won't allow me to select and copy text to paste and print, and recipes are too long to fit into a screen shot! What a drag, as I enjoy foodnetwork recipes. I'm rating smartphone app as I use it 95% more than my computer where I didn't try it yet, but not happy with deficit in app.

    This app has many glitches. Currently it is redirecting me to Google Play for an update when there is none. I cannot open the app to see my recipes at all. Share link for recipes is useless unless the other person also has the Food Network app. Links from Food Network emails attempt to open app but remain stuck at opening screen without ever bringing up the recipe. I may as well uninstall the app and use a web browser. I would expect more from such a large company.

    I, generally, like this app, it has a LOT of great information and recipes. However... 1. It NEVER seems to "remember" I'm a vegetarian. I get meat recipe after meat recipe... 2. NOW they want you to pay for that delightfully jarring foible/offense. So, I go to their site AGAIN - it says vegetarian... 3. Because I checked their site, mysteriously - they've changed the NOTIFICATIONS setting on my phone. 4. You have no idea you're looking at a "premium" recipe, click on it & waste your time...
  • Unable to save recipes without creating an account Nov 22, 2019

    By Dragonessa
    Very disappointed that I can’t bookmark within the app without signing up for an account using personal info. Been years since I wrote this and it’s the same. Please let us bookmark without an external service. This received a developer response but it just told me to ask any questions. Last time I made this exact request to them they send a response about not being able to answer all messages. So again I’m saying: please allow us to bookmark/save recipes in app without signing up or filling out personal information. Dear developer who keeps offering to “explain” it to me: I know you’re doing your job, but there’s nothing to explain. I should not have to give personal information in order to use a bookmark feature within the app. Period. It’s invasive and in this day and age, I want to cut down on how much of my info is in databanks that can be breached. It is a bad feature and really should be removed. Food Network does not need my email or any other info.
  • Love but crashes way to many times when using Mar 11, 2018

    By MadamsOrgan
    I have to edit my review from below, this app now gets two stars because I literally can't even access my collections anymore because the app crashes every time I do. You guys keep adding new features without actually addressing the crashing issues. It's such a great app, but it's too frustrating to use at this point. I really don't understand what the developers are doing that's making them not realize how severe the crashing issue is for those of us who regularly use this app and try to take advantage of all the great features. Previous review: I really love this app, but it literally crashes at least three times every time I use it. When I'm watching videos or trying to write reviews it crashes even more often than that. I really have never used an app that crashes as much as this one does. It's really frustrating and I don't understand how the developers have not found a solution. But I really do love how easy it makes accessing recipes that are on the shows.
  • New update makes this app much worse! Nov 3, 2019

    By Novangelus70
    I love Food Network and I use the app in conjunction with watching a show to look at and save recipes. But now the app has been “upgraded” and has become much more user “UNFRIENDLY!” For instance, you USED to be able to just click the show and find your recipe in the show section. Now the show section is only for paid members to watch videos. If you want a specific recipe from a show you have to search in a general search area which brings up EVERY recipe in the Food Network stable which can be considerable. This may seem like a minor inconvenience but if you want to just get to the one recipe from the show your watching, it’s a complete pain and harder than just searching in google. The purpose of the app app is for convenience. This “upgrade” is actually a major downgrade from the way it used to be. This is a app designer making the app “better” for paid members, but making it much worse for the the rest of us.
  • Zero Stars if I Could Dec 25, 2020

    First I experienced confusion, anger, and finally just disappointment. We downloaded the Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad versions of this app and paid $40 for the premium pass, expecting to be able to watch full episodes of Food Network shows on our Apple TV. This was a Christmas gift for my wife. There is no tab for shows on the Apple TV app. Actually, there is a tab labeled shows, but the contents inside that tab are not full shows, they are short clips of individual recipes, some are barely over a minute long. It is possible to open the App on the iPad, find a full length show, and then hit Airplay icon in the corner to get content to the TV, but after about 9 minutes the audio and video are badly out of sync. Mouths stop and speech continues. The only way to correct this is to pause, disconnect Airplay, reconnect Airplay, and unpause. This must be done every 9-10 minutes. This happened for three different episodes of three different shows. We are using a brand new Apple TV, and 6 month old iPad Pro, and both have the most recent OS on them. Summary: the content is not organized well, the interface is wildly different across platforms, and the delivery of the content is sketchy unless you’re interested in watching the full-length shows on an iPhone or iPad. Disappointed.

    Can't save most recipes. I like the recipes. Don't like having to lnow the EXACT TITLE of each recipe to find it. I Don't want or like adds.
  • What did they do to this app?? Oct 27, 2019

    By Daphne65
    If they thought they were making it better they are gravely mistaken. I absolutely hate this new version. I have given it time and tried to navigate around and it is so poorly designed. I used to be able to watch all my favorite cooking shows every Saturday and Sunday morning and as I would find a recipe that I liked that the chef was cooking at the time, I could open the app and the apps home page would automatically display what show was on air. I simply tapped the show and it automatically displayed what dishes the chefs were cooking at that time which then I simply saved the recipe to the appropriate board I created in my saves. Now, I have to search around for what is on air and even when I find it, there’s a huge lag. The app is showing the show that aired previously and it’s impossible to find the new show with what they are cooking. If this is the way, the app is going to stay, I won’t be using it all and go back to other recipe/cooking websites and apps. Please bring back the old version😩 Also, you have to “search” for the freaking search engine on this app....Who designed this app? You definitely didn’t make it better. If it’s not broken, DON’T fix it!
  • 6.0.0 update is the worst Oct 27, 2019

    By cegs8
    I’ve read all the recent reviews available since the 6.0.0 update. They are not favorable. The majority have one star ratings. My rating is one star as of the 6.0.0 update and I would have given no star if that option had been available. I would list all of my issues with the new update but the reviews that I have read have them all. I am now using the Food Network website again for show information, cooking tips, recipes, etc., things I would have used the app for before 6.0.0. I started using this app when the Food Network first made it available on their website. I gave it a five star rating. I have continued to use it after all of the updates, format changes, and glitches, since. However, as of the 6.0.0 update, the smart thing to do is restore this app to it’s pre-6.0.0 format update. If your developer response to this is “thank you for your feedback. If there is anything we can help you with please let us know...”, my answer is “offer your current version as a new altogether separate app”, with it’s new features, the cooking classes, etc. I’m sure there are some users that will use it and like it. cc: The Food Network, Corporate
  • Needs improvement!! May 3, 2020

    By EiffelElysee
    The organization of videos, recipes, and chefs needs to be improved! Search results logic uses every single word, instead of the string of words, resulting in hundreds to thousands of results. What’s worse, there’s no sorting or way to filter the search results. Way too many terrible recipes. Some “chefs” are really scraping the bottom of the barrel just to put something on there. The reminders for live videos is horrible. They either don’t work, only work within 24 hours of the broadcast, or an email is sent over 24 hours beforehand. What good does the email do?! If the email was sent, there’s no reminder when it starts! Once it’s been scheduled, there is no way to undo it. No way to see all the upcoming videos I scheduled or finished viewing in my own personal list. Should work much better for a paid app!!! Developers responded and only addressed one item. Again, what good does receiving an email reminder 24 hours before the class starts without a reminder when it actually starts?! What about seeing our own personal list of classes we’ve scheduled, missed, and viewed?
  • Awful awful awful !!! Jul 24, 2021

    By SB1141
    I’ve had so many problems since my last review it’s even worse than before. Every time I log in i have to change my password to get in or I can’t find my saved recipes. I contact them and they send me to the help center which isnt helpful at all. I contact them and they tell me to do different things. Sometimes they work,but usually not. This app used to be my favorite go to for recipes but they keep making it worse and worse. This is my last time trying. I am deleting it This app is so unreliable. Sometimes I can bring up the season and recipe I want, sometimes not. Mostly not. Today I keep losing it totally. I tap what I want. It hesitates then the whole app goes away and I start over. After several tries I gave up. Go back to the old version!!!! Still love the show. It’s my number 1 This is the best cooking show on tv. It’s fun to watch, very helpful and the crafts are great. I love to cook and try new things but don’t always have a happy ending. this answers a lot of questions. The chefs explain things and are a good combination that seems to enjoy themselves. Keep it up. I love it!!!!

  • Recent Updates in app format = negative user experience Dec 29, 2019

    By InaFanGirl
    Recent Updates in app format = negative user experience. One example: You used to be able to not only “see what’s on TV now”, but also, what was recently played, and those recipes as well without being driven to a locked/paid page. I don’t want to rewatch the show, I just want to be able to see and save some of the recipes from the episode. New format forces me to try and find the recipe in general search, but if I don’t know the exact name of the recipe, it’s an exhaustive search which usually results in me abandoning the search and moving on. I don’t always have the luxury of watching the show live as I expect is true for most— Eventually this experience will lead to loss of readership/followers/users. I understand trying to monetize premium new features (taking a how to class, for example) but making previous feature/ functions now paid, or super inconvenient to access will ultimately drive people away, even your long term users.
