Here at Allrecipes, we've been hard at work to make the new Recipe Page more streamlined and easier to use for you, our community! Here’s what’s new:
- Recipes are easier to follow. The page is wider and cleaner, and recipe photos are 75% bigger.
- Video tips and tricks are one click away. Recipe videos and related how-tos are displayed at the top of page.
- Find a Plan B fast. Similar recipes are displayed more prominently.
- Decide if you have time to make it. “Ready in” time for each recipe is in big letters at the top of page.
- See time and dinner saving tips. The most helpful positive and negative reviews are displayed, as well as a visual breakdown of reviews by star rating.
- Take action faster. Buttons for adding photos, saving to a recipe box, and printing are larger and more prominently displayed. You can add a review right on the recipe page.
- Shop smarter. You can now add selected ingredients from a recipe to their shopping list rather than every ingredient on the ingredient list.
- Get closer to the home cook behind the recipe. The recipe creator is more prominently featured on page.
