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!

Best App Ever

Fantastic we now have a pantry and it’s brilliant.
To be able to scan the items in is a game changer. Love it.

I can highly recommend this app it’s brilliant. I have used Recipe Keeper for years however there was no way for family members to see the meal planner without sending a link to add to their calendar. Now all members can see what I see. Pestle is very user friendly, so do yourself a favor and don’t hesitate to go Pro. The only thing that would make this app even better is if it included a pantry so you could list what items you had in your cupboard and fridge. Which is why I gave 4 ⭐️ not 5.

Goodbye Paprika.. all hail Pestle

Absolutely amazing app, the integrations with reminders is flawless. The UI and add recipe functions are also both incredible. The integrated rss is also genius as a way to discover ingredients. I feel like I couldnt ask for anything more from a cooking app but given how perfect this app already is i might.

Would it be possible to export nutrition data to shortcuts? Also it would be great if there was a way to seperate ingredients between different dish elements, without the header being understood as an ingredient.

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for those kind words!! As for ingredient sections, I definitely want to add this!

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!
