Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • New and trending recipes and articles
  • Difficulty rankings
  • Blog articles about tips and tricks
  • Preset menus
Delish is a great place to find trending recipes and articles about food and entertaining. The site as a whole is center on trendy articles about what is currently a favorite among readers, users, and the general public. The blog articles and other numerous sections provide users with ideas and information on the very latest news about food and restaurants. The difficulty ratings applied to the recipes on the site is another great feature. This system allows users to determine the difficulty and likelihood of their success in attempting the recipes. Users can also use this system to avoid recipes which they feel they are not skilled enough to master. Additionally the site also offers menus and party ideas to users. These recipes and suggestions can be very helpful for a user who is planning a large or small get-together and is also helpful for those who have never arranged one previously. The unique ideas can also provide inspiration to a user who has arranged get-togethers and parties before but feels they want to try something different.

The Bad

  • Lack of a filtering system
  • No forum or ask a question section
  • No meal planner
The most troublesome part of is that there is no effective way to filter search results. Delish does provide a way for you to browse categories, such as dinner, desserts, and cocktails however it doesn't have a feature which also you to exclude certain types of meals within those categories. If a user wants a vegetarian dinner recipe the user must search for vegetarian and then browse through the recipes for one which can be used for dinner. This continues to be a problem if the user has specific dietary restrictions or preferences and it makes the process of finding an exact recipe quite long. Delish is formatted to be browsed by a user who has time; if this is not the case the busy user could become frustrated. Additionally, Delish does not provide a place for users to ask questions or discuss issues they may be having with a recipe. A forum or "ask a question" section allows users to troubleshoot when something going wrong and provide helpful suggestions to other users after they have tried the recipe. The site does allow commenting on a recipe but experts or other cooks rarely respond to them.

The Bottom Line

As a whole we recommend Delish to users who want to take the time to explore what is hot and trending in the food world and maybe try a new recipe. For users who want a specific type of dish and do not want to spend much time looking for it, we recommend going elsewhere. While the site contains numerous recipes it is difficult to navigate through them. Without filters, a user could be spending hours looking for the right recipe and many people do not have that kind of time.
