  • My favorite recipe app!

    By HamnedSandwich
    Its nice and clean to use, and it’s so good at importing website recipes. I thought I lost all my recipes but it turns out it had just signed me out, but Pestle was quick to respond and help :)
  • My favorite cookbook app

    By Lexiebrianne
    I downloaded many and this is by far my favorite! Easy to use and learn, simple, clean, and has everything I’ve ever wanted!
  • Initial impression- need to improve categories

    By AlliBean07
    I’m new to this app and am at the stage of trying to get my cookbook in order. Hoping this will be the solution I need to get my recipes all in one place and make meal planning easier! My main complaint so far is the categories. Would really love to be able to customize those, but at the very least, it would be nice if the categories made sense. Why is there both “Main” and “Main Course” but not one for “Soup”??
  • Good but extremely frustrating for 1 easily fixable reason

    By HLC7560
    The share name is misleading. When I’m trying out a new app, I’m comparing many similar apps. In the case of cookbooks, I have 5 right now and probably a few others from a long time ago. All on my iPhone. When I go to a recipe web site and click share the iPhone list of apps to share to is listed. Here’s the HUGE problem. Your app says “Share to your Cookbook”. It’s taken me months to figure out that that’s Pestle. That’s very frustrating. Your app wasn’t in the same group as the other recipe apps on my phone. I must have installed it a while ago. I finally found it by scrolling through ALL of my apps looking for the matching icon from the share list. -It’s very presumptuous for you to assume that your app is the users primary if not only cookbook and therefore gets to be called “Your Cookbook” -Having Cookbook begin with a capital makes it seem like that’s the name of the app. There’s already an app on my phone called CookBook (capital B is intended). So the interface says you’re saving to your app and you’re not using your apps actual name. How is the user supposed to know where the recipe went? -None of the screens when you’re finalizing what’s saved state the name of the app either. There’s not even an About or Help or anything. So I highly recommend that you change these 2 things: -Make it so that it says “Share to Pestle” in the iPhone list of share destinations. -Provide a way for the user to know it’s Pestle while in your app’s save recipe interface that opens when you select it from share destination list. Easily fixable and huge experience and brand notoriety benefits.
  • The best

    By st3phani3p
    Import recipes from anywhere, including my faves - screenshots from IG, photos from cookbooks, and recipe websites.
  • Love the simplicity

    By Wilfriend
    I love the simplicity of this app. This is the first app I’ve come across that makes cooking super simple. It’s nice that I can store away my recipes & don’t haven’t to rely on bookmarking anymore in my browser!
  • Life Changing Cookbook App

    By Cscscs07
    Being able to easily find and use the recipes I find online makes cooking 10x more enjoyable. For the first time in my life I have a working cookbook that I’m proud of. My favorite part is how quickly, easily and beautifully the app imports recipes from blogs. I highly recommend this app to anyone that enjoys cooking recipes they find online and are looking to be more organized.
  • Amazing recipe and meal app!

    By ChrisfromUT
    This app works just as well on my Vision Pro as it does on iPhone and iPad. I’m so impressed with this app! It’s beautiful and well organized. The features let you browse through recipes without even touching your phone. I highly recommend it!
  • Great app

    By Buonoj
    I collect a lot of recipes while searching the web. Up until this app was copying and pasting into notes. However now this app has made that process very simple. It is well worth the life time subscription fee just hope the come up with a way it get the hundreds of recipes in notes.
  • Incredible Recipe Management app!

    By dgtiii
    I am very pleased with Pestle, and I use it all the time. I’m so impressed by it that I purchased the Pro lifetime subscription, it’s that good. An intuitive and beautiful interface that makes it easy to import recipes from the web, from a pdf or other document, or simply from scratch. It’s your own personal digital recipe book, complete with photos, scaling, and notes. Customer support for the app is excellent, I had a minor issue recently, and the developer answered my request and fixed the issue within 20 minutes - that’s outstanding! I highly recommend this app!
