Response from Recipe Cost Calculator

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!

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.

Success After Years of Searching!

All the information in one place! Having a representative right here in Canada and in my own Province! I now have easy access to all my ingredients and when an invoice comes in, I can easily add a new ingredient or update pricing if needed. My recipes are up-to-date; clean, costed, and with added graphs for clearer understanding, including the ever helpful profit margins from maker to distributer.

Pros

It has taken me years of searching to find a costing program that I could feel comfortable using, being straightforward enough for my skill level. I am a Pastry Chef first, not a computer person. And, while I was inputting information or setting up recipes it was very helpful to be able to ask for help in real time. They continue to work hard to see that this software encapsulates all aspects of hospitality.

Cons

As I became more comfortable with the software, I felt free to make suggestions, for eg. having a way to do inventory. So even though I did not come across anything to dislike, I could see that my suggestions were always heard.

Have seen all the changes

Nothing but fabulous!

Pros

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!

Cons

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.
