Top 5 Best Free Android and iOS Cooking Apps

 Top 5 Best Free Android and iOS Cooking Apps

Modern technology helps us in all aspects of life, and with its help, cooking has never been easier. No, we don’t mean the stove and the microwave, but the cooking applications. For now, unfortunately, cooking apps do not cook for us but offer us recipes and tutorials, which help us prepare food.

With thousands of cooking apps, it’s hard to find the best one, and even harder if it’s supposed to be free. The applications we are writing about are, in our opinion, the top 5 best free Android and iOS cooking apps.

Yummy

Yummy

Yummy is a free cooking app available for Android and iOS. With over 20 million users, Yummy is definitely the most popular app in this category. In addition to the huge number of users, the application also contains more than two million recipes for cooking. This means that if you cook three different dishes every day, it will take you more than 1800 years to try out all the recipes (yes, we have calculated this).

Yummy allows users to save favorite recipes, plan meals for their family and contains a large number of articles on culinary and health topics. The user interface is nice and modern, and the application is very easy to use.

SideChef

SideChef

SideChef is a free cooking app available for Android and iOS. For a person with very limited culinary skills, such as the writer of this text, this application is an indispensable tool.

The SideChef app was created by Kevin Yu, who is also a layman in the culinary field. He noticed that other cooking applications are often not very helpful for beginners. The main problems are a lack of knowledge of culinary terms and names of ingredients, especially spices.

SideChef guides users through the food preparation process in detail and step by step, with all the necessary explanations. It contains over 18 thousand recipes, the ability to plan meals based on the number of people, and the option to set restrictions depending on the diet or personal taste.

Tasty

Tasty

Tasty is a free cooking app developed by BuzzFeed for Android and iOS. It contains over four thousand recipes, and you can search for recipes based on your diet or current mood. When you search for recipes, the applications will remember your choice and in the future offer you new recipes depending on your personal taste.

For inexperienced chefs, in addition to the recipe in text form, you can also watch a video that will show you how the dish is prepared. Another phenomenal option is “What’s in your kitchen?”. With this option, you can enter the ingredients you have or want to use, and the app will offer you recipes that use those ingredients.

Food Network Kitchen

Food Network Kitchen

Everyone who likes to watch Food Network will be happy to hear that this television has its own free application for Android and iOS called Food Network Kitchen. The application contains over 80 thousand recipes, many of which are the work of famous chefs who have their own shows on this TV network.

What we especially liked about this application is that each recipe contains information about how long it takes to prepare and cook a dish, then the difficulty of the preparation process, and for how many people the dish is. You can also search for recipes by categories such as barbecue, baking, for children, without dairy products, and others.

Kitchen Stories

Kitchen Stories

Kitchen Stories is a free cooking app available for Android and iOS. Like SideChef, this is an app for beginners. Each recipe gives detailed explanations of how the dish is prepared, along with pictures to help you prepare it.

Users who have tried a particular recipe can leave a comment about their personal experience, so you can check if you want to try that recipe too. Also, the users themselves can post their personal recipes, along with pictures and instructions on how to prepare the dish.

Another option we liked was the ability to automatically generate a shopping list where you can cross out the ingredients you already have. In addition to recipes, Kitchen Stories offers a variety of articles on food, diet, and health.
