Vendor Response

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!

Great Product

Any time that we had any issue with the program, we were able to receive immediate help and solutions to the problems. I sold the business and one of the biggest selling points for the buyer was that I was able to provide allergens and nutritional data for all of my recipes.

PROS

We found Recipe Cost Calculator extremely easy to set up and use. The ability to scale recipes based on different factors (the yield that we wanted to obtain most frequently, and sometimes having to scale based on ingredients that we were able to actually use!) quickly and easily was a life saver.

CONS

There were a few ingredients that we used in our recipes that were not "findable" in the nutrition database - this did slow us down somewhat but not to any great extent.

Recipe Cost Calculator 5 stars

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!

PROS

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!!

CONS

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.
