Currently Broken

Used to work fine. Now it says I'm not logged in and crashes. I've lost a lot of recipes I had in Chef. If they fix it I would recommend it. It was great for awhile.

Very Poor Performance

It looked like a great app to have but it doesn't even open. It just gives me a notice claiming that I have to sign into a Microsoft account (even though I am already signing on to it FROM my Microsoft account). This one's going to the recycle bin.

This app has great potential, but several bugs. I get "something went wrong" error almost half the time I try to add recipes. Editing recipes is awkward; I would suggest that the recipe title pop up in an edit box when adding, so a recipe like "the best meatball" can be edited to Meatball, allowing it to be sorted in "M" instead of "T." I also contacted support regarding the "something went wrong" error and no one contacted me.

Great app, BUT...

Intuitive and easy to use. I love the sharing option...worked perfectly w/ AllRecipes. However, the consumer needs to option to at least delete recipes, if not edit them. Other than that, I really enjoyed it.

An excellent design for a cooking app. Let's you add your own recipes but I'm not quite sure how it works. A brief tutorial would be nice but out of most of the cooking apps on the store this is one of the best.

Good Start

I think app has potential, but it has some kinks to work out. I found it confusing that I had to click import and scroll to the end to manually add a recipe. It would also be nice to have a way of editing recipes once they're in your library.

Off to a great start, more features coming

I'm a fan of Chef on Facebook /getchef. According to their latest Facebook post, more features like editing, printing, and the manual addition of recipes are coming in the next version. This app is in its infancy and I'm already in love. Looking forward to future versions!

Couldn't use share feature

I was unable to get the share feature to list Chef as an option, I tried restarting the computer and used the supported websites but still no luck. Looks like it has potential, but as I can't use the feature I was most looking forward to, I won't be using it

Almost perfect

The best recipe collection app I have found, as I can add recipes from anywhere on the web! So useful. Plus a shopping list tool that allows you to consolidate, and a menu planner. All-in-one! However, you can't organize recipes into custom folders. The default is alphabetical. I prefer by course.
