In April, we announced that all Fire TV and Fire tablet users could now activate a 1-year complimentary subscription to Food Network Kitchen, courtesy of Amazon. As of this month, that offer is now extended to Echo Show owners (present and future!) as well. With Echo Show’s Alexa integration, it’s a great tool to have in your kitchen when your hands are a little busy — like when you’re prepping ingredients for a recipe or cooking along with a Food Network Kitchen live class. All you have to do is say "Alexa, Subscribe to Food Network Kitchen" to get started.

Plus, from July 10, 2020 to July 19, 2020, the Echo Show 8 is $89.99 ($40 off!) and the Echo Show 10 is $179.99, which is a $50 savings. Scoop one up to start using all of these fun features with Food Network Kitchen today.

Browse Recipes and Get Cooking

Not sure what to cook? Say "Alexa, open Food Network Kitchen recipes" to get inspired with seasonal picks and 5-star ideas from all your favorite chefs. Once you find the recipe you’re interested in, you can say "Alexa, save recipe" or tap the "save recipe" button to quickly find it again later, whether you’re using Food Network Kitchen on your Echo Show, Fire TV or your phone. Say "Alexa, show me my saved recipes" to view your saves.

When you’re ready to cook, say "Alexa, start recipe" to have the steps appear on-screen and read to you. You can have Alexa walk you back and forth through the steps and read the ingredients.

Watch Cooking Classes

Ask Alexa to "show cooking classes" to access our catalog of thousands of on-demand courses like Chinese Cooking at Home with Ming Tsai and Southern Cooking with Virginia Willis. Say "Alexa show live cooking classes" to see this week’s schedule of LIVE classes you can watch and cook-along with in real time. Miss a class? It’ll be available on-demand about a day after it originally airs.

You can search classes by your favorite chef too. For instance, say "Alexa, show cooking classes by Ree Drummond," to see all of the classes Ree has taught, like Lasagna Soup and Pressure Cooker Pulled Pork.

Watch Your Favorite Shows — Commercial-Free

Say "Alexa, open shows" to browse episodes of all your Food Network favorites — like The Kitchen, Barefoot Contessa, Good Eats, Girl Meets Farm and much more. Know exactly what you want to watch? Say "Alexa, watch the Pioneer Woman" (or whatever show you like!) to automatically watch the latest season. If you get inspired while you’re watching, say "Alexa, save the recipes" to put all the recipes from that episode into your list of saves so you can easily access them later. Plus, you can Alexa to pause, rewind or fast forward while watching so you never miss a beat.

We're so excited to cook with you! Activate your subscription today.
