I've been using this app for 10+ years and it's been wonderful. However, recently with the new subscription payments, the app is pretty much useless. Whether you're searching for new recipes, or looking up saved. You can't find good ones unless you subscribe. But for that you can just go to Pinterest or literally any search engine. It's not worth the download.

Hi Ernest, Thank you for your loyalty. It's always sad to see you go! Please note that Premium is optional for users who wish to see search results ordered by the most popular recipes first or to bookmark more than 60 recipes. Otherwise, you can continue to use Cookpad exactly the same. Please email us at for assistance. Thanks!

I have used this app for over 10 years, during this time it changed names and layouts. It was easy to navigate and I always found an interesting recipe to try. I loved how the recipes were also uploaded by home cooks!!! NOW, i am extremely disappointed and dissatisfied with this app! Now I have to pay a monthly fee to get THE BEST SEARCH RESULTS! It's time to find a new recipe app, I shouldn't have to pay to get the best results.

Hi Jay, Thanks for your feedback! Your loyalty means a lot. Just to clarify, the free version of Cookpad hasn't changed – you still see the same search results. Cookpad Premium is a new feature that sorts recipes by most cooked first. Please email us at for assistance. We'd hate to see you go! Thanks, Cookpad Team
