Please return to the old format, the new one is awful.

I like that this website shows recipes from everyday cooks, except Chef John. I like to read the reviews and suggestions, like the videos and pictures of what the dish should look like but I liked the website in the old format. I agree with other reviewers that this website is hard to navigate and printing a recipe is a nightmare. One of the reasons I joined all recipes as a pro was to access the options when printing. I liked printing in different colors because I save the printed recipes in a binder and used the different colors as a division for categories. I liked printing reviews that were really helpful to me to use when I made the recipe and liked to change the font size because my eyes require the print to be larger than the default size. The print option was available for a while but has now disappeared.

When I received a newsletter in my inbox, I would save the recipes that I would like to make. My recipe box was organized and the recipes were easy to find. My categories were alphabetized with subcategories. Recipes could be moved from one category to another, could be deleted and there were other options as well. The move feature and other options are not available in the new website.

I could plan the weeks menus from my recipe box, print them and print a shopping list at the same time. I liked this because I had my dinners planned, could test the recipes that I had saved and know what we were going to eat each evening. I can't do this any longer unless I do it manually. It was much easier before the new format came into existence.

In my opinion, your website has been totally ruined by the changes that have been made and I am seriously considering canceling my pro membership. I can't see a reason to keep it. Everything I liked has been removed

This is the second time that I have registered my displeasure of this site.

In summary, I would not recommend All Recipes to a friend.
