"If you’re looking for a recipes app on iPhone and iPad, Pestle is a great one to check out." - 9to5Mac

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.

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

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!

The app I always wanted!!

What a brilliant app! I was getting so sick of reading peoples entire life stories when all I wanted to do was read the recipe.. now I can! I love how it has step by step guide of the recipe too and that you can do it hands free! So happy this app exists!

Great App to hold recipes

A great app to easily create a digital recipe book only thing holding it back from a 5 star rating is the grocery list and that it lists the ingredients for each recipe separately and doesn’t amalgamate the ingredients to show total required. Overall with continued improvement in functionality a great app.
