Hi Peter, Thanks so much for this review. Realizing that customers with thousands of ingredients and/or recipes was slowing down the interface we have drastically improved the performance, making it search-based and paginated instead of a single long list. Overall performance viewing recipes and ingredients in long lists is now almost instantaneous, regardless of how many ingredients or recipes you have in your account. Thanks again for the feedback!
Comments: Great customer service, great tool to use and organizing our recipes and getting pricing dialed.
Compared to other websites, I found this one easy to navigate.
I just needed something that had a little more functionality to it
Have seen all the changes
Comments: Nothing but fabulous!
I have been using this software for a few years and have seen all the growth and changes it has gone through. It has been amazing! I asked for a particular feature and the owner has emailed me back to address my thoughts and ideas (I don't know any other company that has that type of customer support). The features just keep on growing!
It does have alot of functions that I do not use any longer since it has grown so much, but I continue to use it because it is so comprehensive and easy to use compared to any other program similar to this.
Recipe Cost Calculator 5 stars
Comments: This is a very valuable tool for me to manage my food cost. We are one year into owning our business and I think there is quite a bit more that I can do with this app that I have not explored yet. I look forward to using the other tools to see how they can be helpful as well. Most of all, I have had fantastic customer service from this company. They are kind, available and very helpful!
Recipe Cost Calculator is a great tool for my small business. It took us a little bit of time to figure out how to use the software but once we got used to it we fell in love. I really like that when you update any pricing for an ingredient it automatically updates all of your recipes using that ingredient. I also like that you can view your recipe in multiple ways. The pie chart of ingredient usage is a great visual to associate with what the costing looks like per recipe. You can also add ingredients as you are building a recipe with out leaving that page, huge time saver!!
Sometimes the conversions are tricky to incorporate. Some are an easy calculation and others you have to enter in a way that the software likes and remember how it is in when creating new recipes. For instance, eggs are in by weight not an each. So you have to multiply the weight to get the correct amount of eggs per recipe. The ingredient doesn't say that how it is entered so you have to remember or check.
