How to Use Your Serious Eats Recipe Box

Setting up your recipe box couldn't be any easier; if you've got a Serious Eats account, you're now the owner of a recipe box! You can just start saving recipes. Still, we thought some instructions would be helpful.

If you already have a Serious Eats account

Once you're logged in to your account, you're ready to start saving recipes. Go find some recipes! When you're viewing a recipe, you'll notice the "Save Recipe" button:


Just click that button to save the recipe to your box. You'll see a dialog box appear that says "Just a moment - we're adding this recipe to your recipe box." Then it will tell you the recipe has been saved to your box--from there you can click "OK" to continue browsing Serious Eats, or click the "Go to your recipe box" button to see the recipes you've saved.

When you want to look at the recipes you've saved, put together shopping lists, and organize recipes into groups, just click on the "Recipe Box" link next to your username at the top right corner of any page on Serious Eats:


This link will take you to your recipe box, where you can access all of ZipList's great features.

If you don't yet have a Serious Eats account

Then it's time to join the community! Click here to sign up for an account. It's free, it's fast, and we know you'll be glad you did. Once you've confirmed your account via confirmation email, you'll be all set to log in and start using your recipe box (see above section).

If you already have a ZipList account

If you've already set up a ZipList account on another partner site such as Epicurious or Martha Stewart, you can merge your Serious Eats recipe box with your existing ZipList recipe box and store all of your recipes in one convenient location. To do so, simply click here and enter your existing ZipList login and password to merge your accounts.
