Inside Scoop: Cooking apps are a chef's best tool
-Hey everyone, welcome to the Inside Scoop.
I'm CNET's Kara Tsuboi joined by Jaymar Cabebe, associate editor.
And well, viewers, it's the time of year we're all cooking big family meals for the holidays and Jaymar has got a few apps, Android apps,--
-that might be able to help with the process.
-Jaymar, what's your first go-to holiday cooking app?
-Well, the first one I really like is called In The Kitchen.
It's made by the Food Network, and you know, I'm a pretty big fan of the Food Network.
I like some of their celebrity chefs.
And one of the great things about the app is that you can actually search by celebrity chef.
So you can just go through some of their profiles, click on the one that you like, and look at some of their favorite recipes.
-Like if you just love Bobby Flay and wanna grill that bird and all of its sides.
-[unk] Some southwest action in there, yeah.
-Yeah, I like that.
-Is that a free app?
Oh, actually, no sorry.
-Okay, but pretty well worth it, it sounds like to get the--
-the recipes of celebrities.
And-- And they're all in there, all of your favorites.
Some of-- Some of the chefs, they only have a few recipes in there.
There's like Morimoto.
I think he only has like five recipes in there, but some of the other ones have literally thousands of their recipes in there.
-What's the next app that you like?
-It's called Big Oven and that has over 250,000 recipes in it and that's really the reason that I like that one.
It's the biggest kitchen database I've ever seen.
Some of the other things it offers is a kitchen timer--
-which is really important.
-And then there's a unit conversion tool.
-To go from grams to ounces or--
-Or like pints
to, you know, quarts--
-and things like that.
-Yeah, because if you're following recipes that are, say, from, you know, England, they're gonna have way different measurements, of course.
And third and final app?
-It's called Cooklet.
It's also free.
Big Oven is free too.
-But Cooklet is free and one of the things I really like about Cooklet is the interface design.
It's-- It's gorgeous.
There's-- There's the screen called inspiration and it's a little bit like an Instagram-type screen, so it's picture based.
You can just go through all of the photos of recipes
and then click on the ones you like from there.
-So this is a pretty new app, isn't it?
-It is-- It's really young actually and-- and there's a lot of bugs in it because it's young, but I think to make up for that is-- is the interface design which is just-- it's gorgeous inarguably.
Thank you so much for the tips.
