Recipe Review Filters — Reading Reviews Just Got Easier

By: Sarah De Heer
recipe review filters

Food Network has close to 5,000 recipes that have more than 40 reviews each. But how do you find reviews that may be helpful to you? Enter the new Recipe Review Filter. Take Alton's Good Eats Meatloaf recipe as an example. If you're browsing the ingredients and notice Alton uses cayenne pepper and chili powder in his version and want to know if it'll be too spicy for your family, instead of browsing all 831 comments, you can filter by tags: "cayenne pepper", "chili" and even "family," to see what others have said about the spice level.

This new feature only displays when a recipe has more than 40 user reviews for easier browsing. It displays above the Ratings and Reviews. It's also available on the Recipe Review page.

A user can select a keyword to reduce the reviews to a manageable number that will allow you to more easily get tips, substitutions and general feedback about the recipe. Upon selecting a keyword, the reviews with that keyword will display below.
