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.More
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.More
This app doesn't work with the share charm
Followed the instructions to use the share charm to import recipes but this app can not share. It doesn't do anything it is supposed to do. Great idea...if it worked!!!!More
Used to be great til they abandoned development.
This app used to be fantastic. They promised updates, they promised a windows phone version, none materialized. Now even basic functionality like sharing a recipe list with onenote is broken. Devs have abandoned this project. Too bad.More
Does not let me share recipes after the second time I opened the app. Also it will not open anymore. I was excited, but now im uninstalling seeing it does not work. Trying PEPPERPLATE.More
Chef lets me collect recipes from any site and view them in one place. It's also useful if you like to plan out meals in advance.More
This an amazing app that really illustrates what a good Windows 8 app can do. The app does, however, have several really annoying limitations. First, it does not support printing. Second, recipes, once entered, cannot be edited. Third, one cannot select and copy text in recipes. I discovered a workaround - launching the Share Charm allows a recipe to be exported to Evernote, from which one can print, and one can copy recipe text.More
Simple. Clean. Brilliant.
This app is off to a great start and has an intuitive vivid UI to make shopping/planning for meals a cinch. Looking forward to future releases and new exciting functionality to come!More
Perfect for your kitchen
Love the ability to send any recipe to Chef via the Share Charm. The automatic parsing of ingredients is magical. Meal planning and shopping list generation are also very straightforward, unlike other cooking apps. Can't wait for future versions.More
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 itMore
