5 Game-Changing Apps That Took My Cooking Level From Burnt Toast To Self-Appointed Masterchef

Whether you are a budding chef or love cooking at home, there is indeed an app for that. Whether you want to try out new recipes, or give an existing one a new spin, or get those ingredients just right for the perfect taste, you need to have one of these five must-have apps on your smartphone.

1. BBC Good Food

BBC Good Food is one of the best cooking apps out there, thanks to its vast collection of recipes. To make it even better, user comments will let you know if you should spend time on that new recipe or try something else.

2. Yummly

If you're struggling between recipes, Yummly is a good option to consider. While the recipes aren't all new, Yummly's personalization algorithm makes a lot of difference in your experience.

The app has tailored recipe recommendations based on your likes and dislikes, so it doesn't feel like you're trying to find a needle in a haystack.

3. Kitchen Stories

Kitchen Stories is a great cross between a recipe book and YouTube. For many, text-based recipes might not be enough – an accompanying video that shows exactly how you need to cook a certain item is always helpful. That's where Kitchen Stories shines.

4. Paprika Recipe Manager

Think of Paprika Recipe Manager as an all-in-one app that comes with a browser built-in. Regardless of where a recipe is – on a random website, food blog, or YouTube – you can access it using Paprika.

If you like a recipe, you can save it to the app and it will be formatted in a set format. The app also allows you to buy the ingredients, which is a nice touch.

5. MasterClass
