BUT, if you have MC 7 or before, this version is for you!
I've been using Mastercook since version 4 and with the change of ownership it had from Sierra to ValuSoft. I figured Version 6.2 would be the end of the line....but thankfully not..it's up to Version 9 now!
Each version release of MC continues to evolves it and keep it the best possible cooking/planning software on the planet. MC just keeps getting better.
The basics-it comes with a standard set of cookbooks and an increased ingredient list of 7000 items, a place to create a meal plan and shopping list manually or automatically while giving you options on how to import(webImport/email/copy,paste) as well as export(email, printing, copy,paste recipes. It interacts with both Palm/PocketPC to download recipes and grocery lists for swapping or easy list check-off at the grocery store.
The WebImport bar makes it easy to import recipes you find on websites by a highlight and click process that works only in Internet Explorer...but it drastically reduces input time versus typing is all in.
While MC 9 comes with a few cookbooks, the web awaits you. There are literally thousands of websites that not only have recipes to download, but whole cookbooks full of recipes...all for FREE. The forums and newsgroups abound in Q&A help and how-to's in better understanding how to use MC.
The interface is clean and sharp...doesn't look like a Win 3.1 interface but not quite XP.Read more ›
Some have complex features that I find difficult to use, and don't really need.
Some are only databases which you use to simply store and retrieve your recipes.
I always return to MasterCook. In my opinion it is the very best software for those of us who are home cooks.
It is very easy to use, and comes complete with thousands of recipes already entered in the program. In addition, you can enter your own recipes by typing them in.
There are hundreds of thousands of recipes available on the internet which you can import. It is able to import recipes which are formatted for other recipe management programs as well as those already formatted for MasterCook.
It is unique in that it is able to import recipes directly from any web page using a special web tool. You will not have to type them into the program, For example, if you find a coconut cake recipe on the Betty Crocker site, just import it into your program and it is yours, picture and all!
You can enter the number of servings you wish to prepare and the recipe is scaled to the correct amount of each ingredient. You can scale it down to a single serving or up to very many.
The feature I use most is nutrition calculation. Every recipe displays the amount of calories, Protein, fat, carbs, vitamins, and minerals in each serving. It also displays the %of daily nutrition provided, according to the daily calorie limit you set, (for example, you can chose 2000 calories per day, or 1800 cal etc)
Great for people on special diets such as low sodium, diabetic, low carb, or low calorie.Read more ›
Both of those goals were met by this product. But there is so much more to praise. I've been a software developer for over 20 years, and I am impressed with this product. Far from being like a shareware product that might ask a $2 donation as one reviewer wrote, MasterCook is a feature-packed, sophisticated program that does just about everything. I have now used it to import thousands of recipes, input my own, including photos, do various kinds of searches, add ingredients to the ingredient list with their nutritional info, edit recipes on the fly with the resulting nutritional analysis recalculation (very cool), and create new cookbooks and organize recipes the way I want. I've used the IE web tool to capture recipes online (ultra-cool), and have used the backup utility. Everything has worked without a hitch.
Here's a tip: My existing recipes were in a Word document. I decided to try saving it as an HTML document so I could use the web capture tool to import my own stuff into MasterCook. That worked just fine except that it wouldn't copy in the photos. I suspect that has something to do with the way Word does the conversion to HTML. If your recipes are already in HTML format, you should be able to use this tool to import, thereby avoiding a whole lot of manual entry.
Okay, now for the negative aspects. There are a few that I've found so far.
1. I have not found a way to import more than one file at a time. This is annoying. I have imported a lot of old meal master recipes in multiple text files.Read more ›
