User Testimonials


“SideChef is a great tool to find new and inspiring dishes. I consider myself an advanced home chef (that means I’d be washing dishes in a real kitchen). However, SideChef never fails to provide new and fun ideas. Whether I’m browsing the feed on the home page, searching for specific ingredients or following my favorite members I am always impressed with the content and quality of the recipes. The excellence of the pictures and step-by-step instructions can make even the newest kitchen newbie an expert in no time.”

–Ben Jackson


“If you love cooking or even like it a little, are a skilled cook or can barely boil water, you will enjoy using SideChef. In my opinion, it is by far the best cooking app I have used. One of my favorites is their Explore Points with helpful and fun cooking facts, tips and inspiration. You can even email yourself a shopping list.”

“SideChef takes the crown for best Food app. Not only does it have a ton of recipes, but the step by step videos that accompany recipes, and even the built in cooking timers are just LEGIT. This is an app built by people who CLEARLY love food, and who have excellent palates, but even more so... There is a dash of internationalism and creativity that goes into the recipes because so many of them are original and very much outside the box. I love this app, and recommend it wholeheartedly.”
