I've been an Allrecipes fan for years, till now. I must agree with many of the other reviewers. These changes were not for the better ! My biggest beef is that the new web pages will NOT allow me to save any recipes. For me, that was the main attraction to this website. Now, I have to put anything I want to save on to Pinterest. This makes the recipe box rather pointless. I do hope Allrecipes will look at these reviews and take them seriously. - Lizzy R.

I had contacted this school via email to let them know this program was not working for me. I was charged the first month which It's ok but after I wrote them I was charged two consecutive months, I sent emails and I do not get any response. Called the phone number no answer just have to leave a message.

The website is super slow motion it's not even funny. You're being thrown recipes at you that you haven't even searched for. When you want to rate a recipe, it doesn't allow you, at least not today, Nov. 15, 2019. As for the recipe quality, they are not great. I still am waiting to be wowed by a recipe on this website.

I will make it again but next time I won't use the box of vanilla pudding I used & I'll make sure 2 add almond extract 2 my icing 4 a better taste!! Thank u r sharing your recipes!!!

I've gotten many good recipes from this site but I think that the rating system is ridiculous. I don't think there's a single recipe that people who give it 5 stars haven't tinkered with, sometimes in very substantial ways. How you could take a recipe, change it fundamentally, and then give it a five star is beyond me. What's the point?

I have gotten several good recipes from this site but for the past few months the website has not functioned properly. It skips around and won't stay on a page. One could get nauseated if you watched it for too long. Too bad, it was good.at one time.
Review by StopBrexitNOW Bomareto1 year ago
It used to be so easy to find a recipe on here. Especially through the ingredient search. I used to love this because I'd have various items that I'd need to make into a dish and the ingredient search WAS excellent. Now when I try to do an ingredient search the page pulls up about 5 actual recipes that pertain to what I'm searching. The rest is ads and how to do this or that - totally unrelated to what I'm searching. I HATE IT. It's too bad. This used to be such a great website - Booooo!

There is no way to cancel the Pro membership service. There is no phone number for the website only an email. If you call the 1-800 number, you get some foreign country and they only know about the magazine. I paid for the Pro upgrade renewal but not getting the added benefits. As I try to find where my card information is located (it too is well hidden) - there is no way to cancel the automatic renewal. BEWARE

I wanted a recipe for a quiche and this site came up. I entered my email address to go with the program and get the recipe email to me. Shortly there after I have been Bombarded with emails that look like they are come from my email address to me. Now they have jacked up an email address that has long been clean. DONT GIVE THEM YOUR EMAIL ADDEESS. Scammers
Review by Sharmeeza1 year ago
System is slow and prone to errors. I had to enter my recipe twice to get it to take. Simply doesn't function well at all. Also, can't sort by RATING? Really!?
You have to wonder what idiot made these choices. And who is "maintaining" the system? 3rd graders with crayons?

Its quite ok, I use it on my phone to check on the recipe and to make sure I'm doing everything properly, I don't have a printer and don't want to hoard a bunch of papers.
Review by Nydja1 year ago
Tried to print a tater tot casserole recipe on two different laptops and it doesn't work. Just trying to write the review here, the damn spell checker starts to correct and comes up with the stupid "block" window which doesn't behave like any other spell checker I've ever used and reverts the "corrected" text back to the start of what you are typing. I'm done - will block this site in my hosts file. You people need to snip your programmers so they don't pass their genes on. One star, but only because it wouldn't allow ZERO!
Review by Sohankumar1 year ago
J’adore ! Les idées de recettes sont nombreuses. Comme je suis débutante, je trouve que les explications sont plutôt faciles à suivre.
Review by Skatrclaytor1 year ago
People very often, that's to say almost always, rate recipes according to changes that they made to the recipe. This is infuriating. If you see a recipe with 5 stars you'd think it is awesome. Then you read all the reviews and see that people really gave their variation of the recipe 5 stars. Not cool people.

Sweet & Sour Chilli & Tomatoe Chutney. Tony Arnold.
Could not find on website how to review his recipe.
Review by Ameilia Ruislip1 year ago
This website has been in a steep decline since acquired by Meridith and new Microsoft CEO installed. Many users have been unable to access their saved recipes for months as many "Collections" will not open and give an "Oops" message. Latest problem is their website will not open giving an Error Code: INET_E_DOWNLOAD_FAILURE. Problems repeatedly reported to Allrecipes by multiple users (see "Ask the Community") but no reply is given by Allrecipes. More advertisers need to weigh in as they're not reaching the audience they may think they are, and ad $ being wasted.

I used to LOVE this site. I used it all the time. I hate it now and have just about given up on it. I have found I am searching for recipes anywhere other than her now. The site is so slow. The little Apple wheel just spins and spins. This does not happen on any other site I use. I loved you once allreipes but I am breaking up with you. Goodbye.
Review by Twistedvisionsx Rudeski1 year ago
This site used to be great. Recently, I noticed that a few of the Pro features disappeared. Since 2012, I've paid for the pro subscription. In Jan 2018, I paid for 2 years,I don't have the Pro features. I've emailed 4 times and I've called and left a message two times. Awful and so disappointing. I'm looking for an alternative.
Review by Selim1 year ago
Allrecipes is now a garbage site. Can no longer print recipes so smartphones and tablets stay out of the kitchen. Won't work with Echo Show properly either. You ask for pot roast recipes, it gives you one, plus 500 other recipes not even remotely resembling pot roast. So full of ads and other extraneous crap that it is difficult to distinguish what is important and what is not. Sad commentary on what is going on generally these days.
Review by JamesandKarla1 year ago
Since summer I can only get some of my collections. I get an error message not able to get all recipies try later. I have sent 4 emails to tech support to no avail. I even sent them a picture of the error message. I am extremely angry at this point
Review by AEMcgrew Rokade1 year ago
They have changed this to make it smart-phone friendly or some stupid marketing concept and it's become useless to me. It used to be my go-to site but, now, forget it. I've got better things to do than mindlessly sort through good and bad recipes among thousands. I strongly suspect that as the website gained use, some marketing talked them into a scheme where actually having to navigate through all the crap increased ad "click throughs." Once again, the consumer loses!
Review by Maureencookiemonster Sambandam1 year ago
It used to be my go-to site, then they decided to "upgrade" it to be more like pintrest. Now it is useless. I have not found and made a single recipe from there since. The add or remove ingredients could be good but is very poorly implemented, I am allergic to vinegar and to remove that as an ingredient I'd have to remove every single type separately but they don't allow enough. I've tried a few times since but now the search just sticks on "waiting", and never loads. Good while it lasted, now a complete waste of time.

Review by Beetree1 year ago
This site was my fave, my trusted go to quickly and get dinner going, saved time and helped with dinner time blues. I love to search by ingredients. Come back to us. The app has been removed from my streaming device.
Review by KenksBenks1 year ago
This site contains so many cooking recipes I've never seen, I do like these delicate food pics, but there are really too many choices to make a quick decision. You might meet an unpalatable recipe if you randomly pick one, or spend too much time to find the best one. A good place to try new tastes.
