How To Use SideChef (iOS)
I’ve gotten into a bit of a groove when it comes to reviewing cooking apps. Now is this because I have some kind of reinvigorated love of cooking? Of course not – there’s just a lot of them out there and I could always use some new apps to review. Does this mean that I may still someday get interested in cooking again? Probably not.

What Is SideChef?
SideChef is an app for walking you through various recipes. Now, I’ve seen a few of these before so I now have a bit more of a vision when it comes to what a cooking app will generally include.

The Bottom Line
SideChef may very well be one of the greatest cooking apps I’ve experienced so far. Not only does it have a great interface and large number of recipes, the app also has the very innovative videos, which help you step by step and even provide timers. It’s like having your own little cooking assistant. Now only if it could do all of the cooking…
