In this way, Epicurious is far more than just a recipe website; it is, rather, an online space and community for everything food. From restaurants and wine guides to blogs and podcasts, this site is for those who love to cook, eat, talk and think food. Best of...

Food.com image
Food.com is a sister site of The Food Network but with a distinctly different, as well as complimentary, focus. Formerly known as RecipeZaar, this site has revamped and rebranded itself as a website dedicated to all things edible. Food.com is clearly orientated towards recipes, and lots of them. All these are made easily accessible by Food.com’s excellent search engine whilst the quantity available means you’ll almost always have a...

Chow image
Unlike many websites in this category that take some digging around in order to work them out, it is immediately obvious that Chow is one of the best designed in this category. Instead of links, tabs and pop-ups flying all over the place, Chow’s homepage simply consists of featured stories and recipes and three tabs; recipes, top stories and video. For those simply browsing, Chow’s homepage is a great...

Delia Online image
If we had to describe Delia Online in one word it would be “practical”. However, upon further investigation we began to like it more and more until we were bursting with praise for this well-designed, high quality recipe website. Beginning with the recipes, although not nearly the most extensive online recipe archive out there, there are easily enough to satisfy most users. If you have something very specific in...

Food.com image
Older site was much better.
User Review of Food.com by Smrgirl on 31 July 2016

Old site was much more user friendly. I really liked the section for new reviews. A lot of my recipes came from there because recipes were ones that I would never have thought to look up. New site does not... (Read the full review)

Please return to the old format, the new one is awful.
User Review of Allrecipes by Sandy on 23 March 2016

Editorial Review/Rating is out of date
User Review of Allrecipes by Momster on 29 January 2016

I have been using AllRecipes for about five years. Before the recent format change to a "Pinterest" style website, it was the best tool out there for serious cooks. It allowed you to search for recipes, save them as "favorites,"... (Read the full review)

Hate the new format.
User Review of Allrecipes by Suzie on 06 December 2015

Allrecipes used to be great and easy to use. The value was in being able to sort by ratings, ingredients, etc. and easily see how others rated or tweeked recipes. Now it's terrible and useless. I've stopped using it altogether.
