es. We welcome your feedback and suggestions for any of Kitchen Instinct’s recipes. All users can write notes after registration.

We are interested in your feedback and suggestions about our recipes. We look for Notes that might prove helpful to other readers who are preparing to cook a meal.

It’s O.K. if you don’t like a certain recipe or the ingredients listed; however, your Notes should offer constructive information for other readers.

A few things we won’t tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence and SHOUTING.

We moderate Notes to ensure that Kitchen Instinct is a reputable space to gather useful information about a recipe.

We hope to create an atmosphere in which people who use Kitchen Instinct can rely on Notes as a trustworthy source for critical feedback or tips regarding published recipes.

While most Notes will be posted expediently if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective and may take some time. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can.

We ask you to complete the simple Kitchen Instinct registration process to ensure that you are a “real” person and that you accept our terms and conditions. The registration process serves to facilitate the development of our online community and ensure that members take responsibility for their comments.
