Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why do I have to sign into my Food Network account to watch Food Network shows?
A: By linking your Food Network account, we can help you sync your saved recipes and episode progress across all of your devices. While watching any of your favorite cooking shows, say “Alexa, save this recipe” to sync it to your saves and access later on your phone. With your free Food Network account you’ll be able to access a subset of Food Network Kitchen’s library, and if you upgrade to Food Network Kitchen Premium, you’ll get full access.
Q: Can Alexa read the recipe to me?
A: Yes — say “Alexa, start recipe,” and Alexa will read the recipe to you step-by-step. You can navigate with your voice by saying “next step” and “previous step” and even ask about ingredient amounts, like “Alexa, how much sugar do I need?”
Q: Can I search for recipes through Alexa?
A: Yes! Try saying things like, “Alexa, show me chicken recipes from Food Network.”
Q: Can I set timers or play music while I cook along?
A: Yes! If you have said, “Alexa, start recipe” or “Alexa, start cooking” you can also ask Alexa to set a timer or play music without losing your place in your recipe. Just say “Alexa, back to recipe” or “Alexa, continue cooking” to find it again.
Q: I tried to access a cooking class, but all I can do is watch a preview. Why is that, and how can I watch the class?
A: Cooking classes are only available to Food Network Kitchen Premium subscribers. To access cooking classes on Echo Show, you need to connect your Food Network Kitchen account to Alexa. First, you need to make sure that you have a Food Network Kitchen Premium account by downloading the Food Network Kitchen app, creating an account, and starting the 90-day free trial to test out the app and subscribe. Next, you need to connect that account with your Alexa. To do this from your phone, open the Alexa app, go to Settings, TV & Video, select Food Network Kitchen and log in. The next time you access this class on your Echo Show, you should be able to watch the class and navigate through the steps. If you have any issues, reach out to us at our customer service form.
Q: I asked for a Food Network show and Alexa told me it wasn’t found.
A: Not all Food Network shows are available in Food Network Kitchen, and only a subset of that library is available for free. If you have questions about specific availability or would like to request a specific title, reach out to us at our customer service form.
Q: How can I access the Food Network experience on Echo Show?
A: Food Network content is integrated into several different parts of your Echo Show. Find Food Network episodes and shows along with your other video apps like Hulu and Amazon Prime by asking for “Video Home,” or ask for us specifically with “Alexa, Open Food Network Kitchen.” Access recipes the same way you ask for any recipes on Echo Show, and ask for cooking shows by saying “Alexa, show me cooking shows.” Additionally, you can say, “Alexa, get recipes from Food Network” to see a landing screen and find recipes you’ve accessed across any of your Food Network Kitchen devices, your Food Network Kitchen saves, cooking classes and seasonal content.
