Cook'n - Version 11

Cook'n - Version 11

This software is da bomb!!

Does anyone have it?

I just got mine today and can't wait to play with it.


If you don't have this, you should watch the 10 minute demo which you can easily find via a search. This software just about does everything and is compatible with almost everything too.

I guess nobody has this or is interested?

You can plug in some ingredients and it will make a menu for you.

It will calculate nutritional values.

It will make a shopping list from your menu.

It has features that let you file all your recipes, even the printed ones in one area for easy access.

Best of all, it is compatible and accessible by your pc, laptop, cell phone, android....

It has live recipe feeds from several sites.

The list goes on and on.

I've barely had a few minutes to try it, but so far, I'm very impressed.

Just watched the demo....fantastic! Unfortunately for me...the $80.00 pricetag is a bit much

Good program though!!

That sounds amazing. That would be really cool to have all the recipes I've tried and liked in one place. I have just been debating how I wanted to do that. But, me and computers, meh. If I can load it on my iPad, then I can get dd to hook me up!

I got mine for about $40 and free shipping online....so that's a fair price.
I know it's worth the investment even though I haven't used it much...I'll get some time this weekend, hopefully.
Too bad I can't play with it at work. lol

I had an old version of Cook'n and liked it a lot - but then my new computer made it obsolete. I will have to take a look at this one - it sounds a whole lot fancier and more sophisticated than the one I had eons ago.

Thankful for posting! I really need something like this. I bought Mastercook a couple weeks ago and was very underwhelmed by its sad attempts to calculate nutritional info!

Can anyone tell me hoe efficiently and accurately this software is at calculating nutritional info?

Also, does it have specialty ingredients in its database? When I add many ingredients into Mastercook, it has no idea what they are!

Many thanks

This looks interesting but reviews on Amazon are not real good. I, too, was underwhelmed by master cook. They never had my ingredients.. For the last few years I have just saved my recipes to Evernote from here and all over the net. It doesn't give me nutrition info but many recipes already have that and I can always check with an on- line site. Thanks for the info though.

MasterCook allows you to add ingredients to the database. I am not at my computer that has it installed right now, but I think you choose "Ingredients"
from one of the dropdown menus to add a new one.
