How can I review and rate recipes?

Share your valuable opinion (and great sense of taste!) by rating and reviewing a recipe. The ratings and reviews on Allrecipes are a valuable resource to our community. Does the recipe get raves—or is it never made again? Your opinion counts. Our staff monitors reviews on a daily basis. NOTE: You must be a registered Allrecipes member in order to review and rate a recipe. Here’s how:

  1. Find the Rate It box under the recipe photos or the Rate and review box below the recipes Directions. Select your star rating.
  2. Rate and review the recipe using the following guidelines*:
    • Make and taste the recipe before you review or rate it.
    • Keep reviews focused on the cooking and eating experience.
    • Don’t add links to other sites.
    • Don’t add comments about other reviewers.
    • Be specific. Good reviews are great. And bad reviews are just as valuable. Just make sure you use appropriate language. If you encounter an inappropriate review, please report it to Community Support.

*Please note: Inappropriate reviews or reviews that do not fit in to the specified guidelines WILL be edited for content or removed from our site at our discretion.

What is the difference between a Kitchen-Approved and a Public Recipe?

All recipes are great recipes!

Kitchen-Approved recipes are recipes from our members that have passed through our editorial process; they have been put into our format and database, and their nutrition information has been calculated by our cooking experts.

Public Recipes are recipes from members which have not gone through the Allrecipes editorial process. In many cases, they have not been reviewed by Allrecipes staff.
