Save recipes from anywhere, set unlimited timers, plan your week with meal plans, and so much more with Pestle.

Import recipes from anywhere on the internet to Pestle, and keep just the ingredients and steps. Just tap 'Share', and 'Save to my Cookbook'.

Turn any recipe into a step-by-step process with Pestle's guided cooking experience. Control Pestle hands-free for those messy recipes, set as many timers as you want & get reminders for quantities with just a tap.

Find a recipe on your iPhone, and cook it for dinner on your iPad with seamless, instant sync. For the power users, you can even switch between your iPad & iPhone with Handoff.

Create a Pestle Household and share all of your recipes with your family, and create Meal Plans together, too!

Pestle learns where you save recipes from and suggests to you their latest creations. Add your favorite foodie blogs and always stay up to date.

Pestle can help you plan out your next 14-days by allowing you to assign recipes to each day. And, of course, syncs everywhere.

Take every ingredient from your recipe and add it to your shopping list! Already got Olive Oil? No worries, just tap it to remove it from your list.

When Pestle isn't able to intelligently extract recipe details, Bookmarks are saved to take you straight back to the source.

We get it, not all recipes are online. If you have a big collection of physical recipes, worry not, Pestle has a recipe scanner to digitize them!

There's a lot more you can do with Pestle, but we'll let you discover it!

The use of Pestle is outlined in our Terms of Use, which can be found at

What’s New

Version 1.4.1

Smart Folders, PDF Scanning, Image Scanning and more!

Buckle in, this is a big one!

# Smart Folders
Create Folders which fill themselves based on your criteria. Desserts that aren’t drinks that are also rated at least 4 stars? Easy! The sky is the limit with this and I can’t wait to see how you use it!

# Image Scanning
In addition to Pestle’s existing scanner, Pestle can now scan images from your Camera Roll as well! Importing is a breeze, and you can save your recipe cards to Pestle in no time!

# PDF Importing
Got cookbooks sitting around as PDFs? Well now Pestle can import those too! Tap the ‘+’ in your Cookbook and begin highlighting your favourites straight out of the book.

# Search Improvements
Ever searched for a recipe and wondered why something matched? Now in the top right of all search results, you'll get a helpful label like "Main Course" or "Matches Ingredient".

# Spotlight
Lastly, just a little treat. Pestle will now show Recipe previews in Spotlight search, just for a bit of visual flair.

# Bug Fixes

- The Meal Plan widget works again
- Calendar Sync works better
- Fixed instruction labels being truncated at one line.
- Spotlight won't share duplicates anymore
- Fixed serving sizes getting stuffed up

Love this app for storing favourite weeknight meals

I’m glad I found this app as it makes a really easy reference for me when I want to revisit those online recipes that are great for midweek meals. Just scrolling my collection helps jog my memory on ideas for dinners. Much easier to use this app to read the recipes as opposed to the annoying food blogs where they came from (with endless scrolling and text and pop up ads and videos). Great app!

The app I’ve always wanted, but didn’t realise

This app is a god send. Previously my method for storing web recipes was just to leave the tab open or heaven forbid, just remember what site I was on when I need it again. That method generally fails. The Pestle converting measurements and scaling functionality is great and the step by step and timers are the icing on the cake. Which is exactly what I’m about to do…make a cake!

My new go-to recipe app

I was a Paprika user but came across Pestle through a podcast and some on-line articles/reviews. I’m a convert! I love the look and feel of the app, the reminders integration is so much better than other competing apps and I overall just enjoy using Pestle more. Great work. Happy to support ongoing development with the reasonably-priced subscription.
