    "Love it. It's super easy to find good foods to eat. Sometimes you just want to grab something that is pretty healthy or try something new but don't want to... make a whole meal like most things try to get you to do and this really helps with that. Sometimes I want to try a new cereal or something, just look it up on the app and see if it's good or not. Easy, very worthwhile. Would download again."

    "I thought I'd try Weber Grills because it was free and I needed a little help coordinating my chef skills. It's useful. I've used it to set multiple timers concurrently so I don't loose track of certain dishes while multitasking. It's saved me from turning many dishes into charcoal! I enjoy some of the extra features too like it providing random cooking tips."
