Plus, Echo Show users now get it free for a year!
Say “Alexa, subscribe to Food Network Kitchen” to try it free!
I recently started using Food Network Kitchen to cook a few dinners each week and absolutely love it. My big update is that this past weekend, I finally achieved the holy grail of cooking: a perfectly cooked burger! And with a little help from Bobby Flay’s Food Network Kitchen tutorial, you can too 🙂
The Food Network Kitchen experience on your Echo Show gives you access to 80,000+ recipes with easy-to-follow videos and visuals. You can also watch live cooking classes and commercial-free episodes of your favorite Food Network shows.
Give it a try!
Say “Alexa, subscribe to Food Network Kitchen” then “Alexa, redeem offer” to get it free for a year if you have an Echo Show.*
Once you’re in, poke around to see all the cool things you can do by tapping your Echo Show’s touchscreen — or try these Alexa commands:
- “Alexa, show me cooking classes”
- “Alexa, show me live classes”
- “Alexa, find a recipe for hamburgers” — or anything you’d like!
- “Alexa, watch an episode of Barefoot Contessa”
Note: When you come back later, say “Alexa, open Food Network Kitchen” to get back in, then try the above commands
Pro Tip #1
When you ask Alexa to subscribe to Food Network Kitchen, you’ll be automatically subscribed using the email associated with your Amazon account — no need to go through the headache of creating a username and password. You’ll receive a few welcome emails as well.
Pro Tip #2
When I navigate around Food Network Kitchen via the Echo Show’s touchscreen, sometimes it takes a few seconds to respond — if this happens to you, be patient, you’ll get where you’re trying to go 🙂
Pro Tip #3
I like to preview recipes and cooking classes before committing. When you’re in a recipe, you can skip through the steps quickly by saying “Alexa, next step.” Cooking class videos are generally split into 3 – 5 sections, and you can skip ahead by tapping the number corresponding to the section in the lower left corner.
*US only. After the complimentary one-year subscription ends, you’ll automatically be enrolled for an annual cost of $39.99 (but you can cancel any time if you don’t want to be charged).
4 reasons you will love Food Network Kitchen
#1. Easily watch thousands of high quality, step-by-step cooking classes
Just say “Alexa, open Food Network Kitchen” then “Alexa, show me cooking classes” to watch on demand. If you want to cook along, you can always say “Alexa, pause” or “rewind 10 seconds” if you aren’t as fast at chopping or mixing as the host.
#2. The live classes are awesome!
They’re particularly fun right now since the chefs are mostly homebound due to coronavirus, which means you get to peek inside their home kitchens and watch them come up with great dishes with the things on hand in their pantries.
#3. It’s super easy to save recipes and come back to them later
When you see a yummy recipe while you’re watching a cooking class or episode or just browsing, say “Alexa, save recipe” to add it to your list. Say “Alexa, show my saved recipes” to see them.
#4. Watch episodes of your favorite Food Network shows commercial-free
If you’re a big Food Network fan, you’ll love digging back through the archives for Alton Brown’s take on soufflé or a certain Barefoot Contessa brunch idea. Just say “Alexa, watch an episode of Barefoot Contessa” (insert chef of your choice!).
