Con Poor web clipper
URLs can't be "shared" to Evernote Food or even copied from the browser and pasted to the app. The only way to clip a recipe is to open the app's Explore Recipes section, search for a recipe unsuccessfully, open up the app's built in browser that has no address bar and find the desired link through Google Search.
And the web clipper only saves a link to the recipe. It doesn't import it. Same functionality can be achieved with any browser's built-in bookmarking feature.
Con No tools or funtionality for shopping, meal planning or cooking
Evernote Food is a very light wrap around the core Evernote app and as such doesn't add any advanced functionality that would be helpful in managing or preparing meals. There's no information specific to meals, ingredient list is just text that's typed or copied in manually, there's no grocery list, meal planning or tools that would help in cooking.
Con Browsing the app is slow
While the app itself is not slow, waiting for various pages to load can take time.
