Peppperplate bills itself as “the only app for serious cooks,” and with pretty good reason: There’s an amazing amount of functionality included in this one intuitive, easy-to-use app. Whether you’re planning for a serious dinner party or just trying to get food on the table for your kids between school and hockey practice, Pepperplate is like having a sous chef, an encyclopedic cookbook, and a personal assistant all rolled into one – and resting conveniently on your counter.

Want to plan? The app lets you plan meals in depth and schedule menus days in advance.
Need to go shopping for ingredients? You can automatically add recipes to your shopping list, and even make sure it’s organized to suit the way you tackle the store.
Want a hand in the kitchen? Pepperplate lets you set up multiple cooking timers, so that all of your components get the attention they deserve. And with the app’s handy “cooking mode,” the screen won’t dim when you turn away – no more black screen just as you need to check your ingredient list!
And we haven’t even gotten to the best part of this all-in-one virtual chef’s helper: It’s available as a totally free download for iOS and Android devices. What are you waiting for? Get cooking!
